Coaching

I help my clients overcome the barriers that hold them back, and prevent them achieving their highest potential and true happiness. As a positive psychology practitioner, my coaching strategy is largely based on Applied Positive Psychology theories, techniques, and interventions. Nonetheless, I have an eclectic approach and use a number of techniques from various disciplines including ideas from; Cognitive Behaviour Therapy, Transactional Analysis, and Neuro-linguistic programming. 

Coaching helps you;

  • Unlock your potential and generate exceptional personal and professional performance,
  • Strengthen your personal virtues, boost your confidence, and hone your leadership skills,
  • Enhance your relationships and ensure the collaboration and commitment of everyone in your personal and professional network,
  • Become a greater asset to your organisation and achieve your next promotion,
  • Develop your personal qualities, and attain personal growth, fulfilment, and happiness.

Frequently Asked Questions

What type of people ask for coaching?

People who want a positive change in their lives, find coaching very effective. My clients are mainly aged between 25 to 65 years old and are often ambitious individuals who aim to achieve a personal or professional goal that they highly value.

What is the difference between executive coaching and other types of coaching?

Coaching skills and processes are almost the same regardless of the purposes of coaching (e.g. achieving assertiveness, preparing for promotion, etc.). However, coaches use different titles to show their area of experience and expertise. For example, coaches who call themselves 'executive coach' try to convey the fact that they have experience and knowledge to help top business managers and high performing executives who often have complex personal and professional lives. Whereas, a life coach prefers to be involved with relationship issues or emotional problems that accompany significant changes in life. Usually, most coaches feel confident and are indeed competent to engage in a few different types of coaching despite their preferred title. 

Do you follow a specific code of conduct?

I am a member of the the International Association of Coaching (IAC) and strictly follow IAC's code of ethics. A copy is available on request

Will you keep the coaching process fully confidential?

Of course, successful coaching requires mutual openness and trust. It is also unethical and illegal to divulge clients’ affairs. So, everything will remain completely confidential.

How do you coach?

I typically coach in person (face-to-face) at an agreed venue (usually) in central London where it is convenient for me and most of my clients. Alternatively, some clients may find it appropriate to have telephone coaching which is indeed more economical, and almost equally effective. My clients are always welcome to call or send e-mails between the sessions to ask a question or clarify a point while working on their action plan.

Note: For your convenience, I will travel to the venue of your choice, at no extra cost, if your chosen venue is in central London. Otherwise, there would be a commuting cost, depending on the location of your selected venue.  Of course, you are always welcome to come to my preferred place, if it is convenient for you to travel to central London.

How do I get the most from my coaching?

You must be willing to stretch yourself, to make time for your improvement, and to try new ideas. You should attend each coaching session prepared, thinking deeply about what you want to achieve. You must be willing to learn and be committed to taking the necessary actions.

Is coaching the same as therapy or counselling?

Coaching, counselling and therapy share many core skills. However, the key difference between coaching and therapy or counselling is that coaching does not involve medical care or treatment and does not seek to resolve old underlying issues. In other words, it does not often look into the past. Coaching programmes are generally more concerned with the practical issues of changing perceptions or attitudes, setting goals, and achieving results within specific time frames.

How much does coaching or private training cost?

The rate for face-to-face or telephone coaching depends on the type of the session you book (i.e. being the first session, a standard session, or a package of four). Please note that the rate for providing private personal development training is also the same. 

  • The first introductory session (fifty minutes) is set at £80 (equivalent to 50% discount). For telephone coaching/training, the introductory rate is £60.
  • A single standard session (fifty minutes) is offered at £160 (applicable to all on-going sessions). For telephone coaching/training, the standard rate is £120.
  • Four sessions booked and paid together are marked down to £480 (equivalent to 25% discount). For telephone coaching/training, a four-session package is £360.
  • Note: for telephone coaching/training, the client should initiate the call and pay the ensuing charges.

How many sessions do I need?

Every client is different with their own individual needs, so the number of coaching sessions needed for an individual is different in each case.  Start with a few. You can then decide to take more sessions if the coaching process has made a notable positive difference for you.
