“Jane really helped me to develop my thinking. Encouraging me to consider timescales and options that led to that ‘eureka’ moment… invaluable opportunity for reflection, a chance to talk things through rationally and do some action planning.”

Coaching is a focused, flexible and, above all, effective approach to sharpening and enhancing performance. It works. Fast.

Common Themes

Whatever the circumstances, typical coaching projects relate to enhancing performance in a current position, making an effective transition into a new position or unravelling knotty problems. Themes that arise most commonly in my practice and experience are:

  • Developing effective working relationships: with colleagues; with clients; with multipliers
  • Devising and implementing a business development strategy
  • Improving performance within a team
  • Enhancing professional reputation
  • Dealing with conflict
  • Being a good role model; manager; leader
  • Handling a new role
  • Preparing for promotion
  • Returning to work after a period of absence: redundancy, maternity leave, family commitments

Advantages of working with a coach

  • The process is confidential and discreet
  • All work done is completely relevant and meaningful to you so the time you invest is well spent
  • The process allows you to work on the ideas, issues and concerns that feel you would prefer to address in private

What to Expect

Coaching is a flexible and collaborative process. Your coaching sessions will be tailored specifically to your needs and concentrate exclusively on the issues you want or need to address.

A coaching project typically comprises up to six 1.5 or 2-hour meetings at intervals of 3-6 weeks with interim telephone or email support, as appropriate.  All conversations are confidential.

Alternatively, why not consider ProTreat as an option?

Getting Started

Often, I am engaged by a business to coach a partner, director, barrister, fee-earner or member of the support team as part of that person’s development plan. The organisation arranges and pays for the project. This does not affect the confidentiality of the coaching conversations.

Some people prefer an additional layer of privacy within the process. Those people come to me directly and make all arrangements and payments on their own behalf.
