Will I be given advice or told what to do?
No. Life coaching is about encouraging personal reflection and decision making. My role is to empower you to make the best choice.
How many sessions will I need?
Whilst this depends on your issues and what you would like to achieve a good starting point is to consider you'll be working over three appointments.
Do you have a standard contract or agreement for working with people?
What qualifications fo you have?
I have a Diploma in Life Coaching and am a member of the Association for Coaching, an international professional body for life coaches. I also hold a PhD in Theology, MA in Criminal Justice, BA in Community Justice, BA in Bible and Theology and a Diploma in Probation Studies.
What experience do you have?
I am a former Senior Probation Officer with over 18 years experience working with the marginalised, disadvantaged and people who are struggling with a variety of complex issues. I also lecture Psychosocial Analysis, train life coaches and have been a middle manager in a large public sector organisation.
What sort of people do you work with?
Through life coaching I have worked with a wide variety of people. This has included people in recovery from issues of abuse, addiction and mental health struggles enabling them to improve their wellbeing and rebuild a meaningful life. I have also worked with people to help deal with career related issues and more general life experiences.
