Frequently Asked Questions
What is coaching?
The International Coach Federation defines coaching as ‘partnering with clients in a thought-provoking and creative process that inspires them to maximise their personal and professional potential’ (ICF, 2012).
Coaching aims to help you achieve clarity and confidence to work through any issues that are holding you back from living the life you want to live. The goal of coaching is to empower you will the tools and skills to confidently deal with the challenges you face either in your professional or personal life. It is not about someone telling you what to do and how you ought to live your life, your coach is there to facilitate your journey and to help you define and achieve what you set out to. The person-centred approach I use in coaching means that I firmly believe that every individual has the skills and the knowledge to overcome their barriers and that the coach is there to uncover these solutions and help the individual bring them to fruition.
There are many approaches to coaching. The models and techniques I use are from Cognitive Behavioural Coaching and Acceptance and Commitment Coaching. Unlike many other coaches I have a background in academic research so ensure that all the tools and techniques I use are grounded in theory and have a sufficient evidence to support their effectiveness and value. For more information on these approaches please see the relevant blog posts.

Where will the coaching session be located?
I am based in Eastbourne in East Sussex and can travel to Kent, West Sussex and London to meet for a session. Alternatively, I also offer Skype sessions if that works better for you. Skype works particularly well if you are stuck for time or located in a region outside of the areas I cover.
