Frequently Asked Questions

What is coaching?

Coaching is about unlocking your potential - using powerful questioning and reflection to help you overcome barriers, raise your confidence, and ultimately achieve your goals.

How do I get started?

All good coaching relationships kick off with an introductory call. I'll ask you what you want to get out of coaching (don't worry if it's a bit woolly!), and I'll explain my approach. If we're a good fit for each other, I'll put together a package based on your needs.

How can I get the most out of coaching?

Because of its nature, coaching relies on both of us to bring our energy, motivation and commitment. I can't wave a magic wand for you (as much as I would like to!), so you'll need to engage in the process and make time to work on the actions you set for yourself. We can discuss what's realistic in our sessions.

Where will coaching take place?

Normally, we'll have coaching online via a platform like Zoom or MS Teams. I'm based in South Manchester, UK, and if you're nearby we can meet in your offices, grab a coffee, or even go for a walk. Travelling longer distances is possible where it suits us both.

I have additional needs - how can coaching work for me?

If you have any requirements which may aid your enjoyment and success with coaching (such as assistive technologies, interpreters, extra-long sessions etc), please let me know and we can work together make sure you get the most out of your coaching experience.

I've coached people with a range of mental health conditions (e.g. anxiety, depression) and people who are neurodiverse (e.g. ADHD). I am not a counsellor, and coaching should never be used as a substitute for therapeutic or medical support. However coaching can sometimes be a useful complement. We can discuss this in strict confidence.

What are your fees?

I tailor my packages according to your needs, and so like many coaches I don't publish a "rate card". Discounts are available for private clients and charities. I'm happy to discuss these with you on a no-obligation basis.

How many sessions will I need? How frequent will they be?

This depends on a range of things, including the complexity of the challenge or opportunity you're working through, and the amount of time you're able to dedicate to your follow-up actions. We'll have an initial complimentary conversation and I'll develop a package that's bespoke to you, which takes into consideration the time and budget you're able to invest.
