Coaching thoughts and testimonial

I recently met a coaching client who I coached almost two years ago now.  We had focused on some frustrations in their work. We started to explore the values they hold close and how these impacted on how they reacted at work to certain situations and how they felt about their work. There were some small changes in behaviour as a consequence at the time. About six months later they left their job of almost 20 years for another one better suited to their values. Another year later and they've started to set up a part-time business  completely aligned to their values and passions! This change, they told me, started in those coaching sessions almost two years ago! The power of exploring and understanding your core values and what makes you tick!

Feeling proud to be a coach!

These are fascinating sessions to deliver for Health Education England via There is some great learning around power, and where power lies within the groups people work within. There are often some great insights for the doctors in to themselves and considering their style of communication and what sort of leader they want to be.

Stress Busters Workshop - 15th Feb 2018

Do you suffer from too much stress? Are you trying to manage the impact of stressed staff? Are your sickness absence levels high and performance lower than you’d like it to be? Would you like to reduce your own stress levels and learn how to do this for the staff you manage? Then this is the workshop for you.

In our personal lives and at work the world is feeling like a very stressful place but we don’t have to accept this. Employers are also starting to recognise the importance of helping staff to manage stress as a way to reduce absenteeism, improve performance and ultimately enhance profitability.

At the end of this workshop you will:

  • understand the difference between good stress and bad stress
  • be able to identify the common triggers for yourself and others
  • be able to spot when someone is becoming too stressed
  • take effective action for managing your own stress
  • be able to actively support those you manage in dealing with stress
