I am really delighted you have selected me to be your coach.

To make it as easy as possible, I wanted to have this page as a reference point for you to use to get the most out of coaching.

The process

So, we've already had the discovery call and decided that coaching with me will be a good fit, so firstly, thank you. I'm excited to start working together! The table below serves as a guide as to what to expect from your coaching experience with me.

Just let me know what works best for you and we can get our sessions booked in. Most clients have opted for online in recent times and whilst I can work across any platform, I have found Zoom to be the best. Zoom guide here.

If you create an account on my website (top right 'Log In' button), you can book, reschedule and cancel your sessions.

If we're working together face-to-face, whilst you are welcome to get a sense of my likely availability via the online system, it's not yet clever enough to know how long the travel might take, so in these instances, let's connect in person to work out the best times!


NB Please check your Coaching Agreement for cancellation terms.

Coaching Experience

Step 2: Establish your coaching goals

A good place to start is to really have a think about what you want to get from coaching. By completing this Coaching Goals word document and sending it to me before the first session, I can get a really clear idea of what success for you would look like for you. If you're limited on time, just send me across 2-4 bullet points on what you would really like to get from coaching.

Step 1: Complete the Coaching Agreement

All Professional Coaches will have a Coaching Agreement which will need to be signed by both parties before coaching can commence. Once we've both agreed that working together feels like a good fit, I'll send over a Coaching Agreement. As you can see from the example in the link, this covers all of those foundational things that are required by the International Coaching Federation including my Code of Ethics

Step 3: Book in your sessions

Coaching works best when the sessions are clustered. Clients typically opt for a session each month, but if you're embarking on a significant programme of change, you might want your sessions more frequently. Just let me know what you think will work best. I can usually flex things to meet your preferred timings. You can book in your sessions via my online booking system. By creatng an account on the site first (Top right hand side 'Log In' button) you'll be able to see all your booked sessions in one place and reschedule as needed. (Subject to the cancellation terms of the coaching agreement) I also offer a 'coaching on demand' service subject to availabilty. If something comes up where you'd like a coaching session, let me know and I'll do my best to get you booked in asap. NB If we're having face-to-face or walking coaching sessions, my online system will indicate potential availability, but it's probably best for us to catch up in order to make sure we've accounted for travel time etc.

Step 4: Prep for your coaching session

Each coaching session will typically be 90-120 minutes. It is good to think about what you would like to work on before each session to get the most from the experience. That could be something related to your strategic goals, or a live issue/opportunity which you would like to do some more thinking about. Bring pen and paper with you to the session as it's likely you'll want to make a note of learning or commitments.

Step 5: During/immediately after your coaching session

During your coaching session you may have made commitments to yourself. Think about booking time into your diary to make sure these commitments are realised. After my coaching sessions (yes, I have coaching too!) I like to book 30 mins afterwards just to write down all the things that I noticed. Using a tool like Rolfe's "What, So What, Now What" model is a really great way to deepen your coaching and get the most from the experience.

What Next?

If you're keen to continue coaching following our sessions, then let me know and we can organise getting you set up either personally, or through your employer.

Here's to mutual success!
