Coaching

As someone with quite a lot of life experience behind me, including several sudden bereavements, I appreciate that ‘positive thinking’ isn’t always enough to get us through. Instead we need to find ways to feel more in control of our lives and to fully use our existing resources.

We need to identify strategies and goals that are appropriate and realistic to who we are as individuals, but which also give us scope to stretch ourselves and fulfil our aspirations. And we need strategies which keep us afloat when we find ourselves facing setbacks and disappointment.

How I work

I am a trained and accredited coach. I work alongside the client as they explore their chosen agendas helping them to make discoveries about themselves and their goals.

I offer deep listening and reflecting back and where appropriate, observations and challenges, but at all points I follow the client’s agenda - never my own ideas of what might be best for them.

I am non-judgemental and I respect client confidentiality at all times.

Woods and Trees

Not being able to see the wood for the trees is a pretty hackneyed image but I find it's a helpful one to describe the power of coaching.

Imagine that you're standing on this side of the wood but you’d much rather be in the mountains on the other side. You know there are possible ways through the wood but all you can see is trees...

Coaching can help you clarify and identify the different paths and consider the positives and negatives of each 'route'. So you can make carefully though-out decisions.

Empowering people

Coaching is a wonderful tool for empowering adults and young people who feel disadvantaged and powerless. They have an important opportunity to have their thoughts and feelings listened to and valued. They are supported to think deeply and make decisions which are relevant for their own lives - rather than feeling that they are being given advice by other people.

Costs

My costs are graded according to the type of organisation I am working with and the package of coaching required. Please contact me to discuss details.

Henrietta asks the difficult questions and probes for those issues and problems that made me feel uncomfortable, but are necessary to find the right solutions. She works incredibly hard to provide the right support and helped me to move on when I was looking for new direction in my career.

Henrietta has coached me in the past - I found the sessions invaluable. She was totally present and moved me to a level of understanding that had previously eluded me. She has a warmth that seems to wrap around you and comfort you so you come away feeling uplifted. Thanks for those times.
