Coaching: transformational conversations.

Sometimes, all you need is a bit of space to think.  Sometimes with focused challenge to help you get over a block; other times, with compassionate support to access a way of being that enables you to really soar. 

Whatever the starting point, 1:1 coaching offers a dedicated and safe space where you can:

  • do some clear thinking and problem solving
  • be unedited and say the things you can’t say elsewhere
  • learn to trust that you’re doing ok
  • explore ways that you can ‘get out of your own way’ with some fresh perspective
  • get support balanced with compassionate challenge

My coaching style is straight talking and supportive, clear and compassionate. By helping you develop greater self-awareness, I enable you to catch your blind spots, explore different perspectives and experiment with new ways of working that will have an immediate impact on your personal effectiveness and the ways you feel.

The coaching process begins with a session to create a picture of where the you’re at right now and what’s going on in your working and wider life. Then can we start to get clear on goals. This might involve further diagnostic work and might also involve your line manager. Then, together with you, we agree a tailored programme that is realistic but will also really stretch you.

Most of my work is now over Zoom and over the phone, of course.  And I find this is just as – if not sometimes more –  powerful than face-to-face.

My coaching programmes are structured around the needs of each client.  And so if you’d like to chat through how we might be able to work together, please do get in touch. In the meantime, two of my recent blogs that have links to my coaching practice include one on our inner critic and another on the importance of ‘holding space’ for another person.

 

‘Unlike any other coach I’ve worked with, and there have been a few, Helena has an amazing, innate ability
to make me feel comfortable to the point that I’m completely honest, open and receptive. Our sessions
were incredibly productive she really was instrumental in me achieving each of my specific career goals.’

Miranda Cain, Director of Resources, Blue Sky Performance Improvement
