I work with senior managers to achieve their goals and overcome their challenges by exploring their limiting beliefs and challenging their perceptions through transformational coaching.
I have worked in the charity sector for over 20 yrs. I now coach Senior Managers to identify their goals and challenges, and discover the next steps to achieving these.
Through coaching with me you will discover what holds you back, your limiting beliefs and shift your perceptions of your current challenges.
WHAT IS COACHING?
Through coaching I provide a non-judgemental, open, collaborative and confidential space between myself and my clients - with a focus on my client's own thoughts, challenges, outcomes and goals.
I specialise in, and am a qualified Transformational Coach. Transformational Coaching is a powerful way of exploring our personal beliefs and values and how these are shaping our experience of life, and our behaviours.
WHY HAVE COACHING?
Coaching creates clarity of purpose and direction, challenges limiting beliefs and self-talk and encourages clients to move towards successful resolution of their issues, challenges and opportunities.
Coaching is a journey of reflection, discovery and self-awareness combined with action and goal orientation where required.
I work with individuals on areas in their personal or work lives, and I also specialise in working with individuals or teams in organisations.
COACHING WITH ME:
With over a decade of leading teams through change and success utilising the powerful skills of coaching I am able to offer a good breadth of personal and professional coaching techniques. Time and time again I have seen individuals and teams flourish through coaching them to identify and attain their goals, improve their relationship building skills and become more resilient in both their personal and work environments.
My career has been in the Not For Profit Sector for the last 20 years, and I have specialist knowledge and understanding that can help support Fundraising and Marketing specialists from the sector.
In addition I am a certified EFT Matrix Reimprinting Practitioner and when appropriate can incorporate EFT tapping techniques to help individual address deep rooted self beliefs that hold them back in life.
I can be flexible when booking sessions and am available in person on Fridays, or over Skype/Zoom in the evenings and weekends.
You don't need to have it all figured out to move forward.....just take the next small step
While I loved my job, there were aspects of the role which would make me very anxious, in particular presenting or sharing my opinion in front of senior members. I lacked confidence and self-belief which led me to stay in my comfort zone and avoid taking on new opportunities which I knew would ultimately benefit my career.
It has been really insightful so far. I've discovered a lot more about myself than I thought I would have in such a short space of time. It can be difficult for me to be so open but you make me feel comfortable and I always come away from our sessions feeling positive. I like your calm and thoughtful approach, as it puts me at ease and allows me the time and space to think deeply when I need to. Some of the tools, tips and techniques you've shared with me have been invaluable, such as the thought diary - it does require time and commitment which I struggled with at first but having used it once, it's now an essential after any big project or self-reflection.
You helped me to gain the confidence to apply for an internal role and I got the job!
My biggest challenge was the uncertainty around my next role after my assignment finished working abroad. There were lots of different avenues to pursue with Jo on the subject and Jo approached each one professionally. The process has been very beneficial for me in both my career development and personal life.
Jo is very warm and encouraging and remains neutral throughout the sessions. Jo is very natural coach and the sessions are well structured. I’m a visual person so I love the use of the white board and the follow up notes afterwards. Jo has an incredible talent of taking all of the information and dissecting it into key areas to focus on, which is a brilliant skill to have in a coach.
Jo has helped me gain a clearer perspective on my life and my recent promotion!!!
I found my sessions with Jo super and would highly recommend Jo. Jo could relate to my situation and was extremely empathetic - put practical/achievable steps in place to help me get to where I wanted to be.
Jo had confidence in me and in my abilities, more so than anyone. It was thanks to her that I learnt to believe in myself, and developed the confidence to take big steps to help my career. Talking to her, I realised that the barriers I saw could be overcome, and she gave me the courage to put myself out there. Thank you Jo for always being such a good listener, and a champion for what I can achieve.
Feeling empowered - it reminded me that I am in control of how I respond and react to challenging situations. And that it's ok to feel about them however I want to feel but to not let it be a blocker to me. That one difficult situation does not define or limit me.
Confidence was definitely my biggest challenge. More specifically, a lack of confidence in my experience, decisions and successes. This affected areas such as line management, working with senior colleagues, and public speaking.
Your coaching has been a revelation! You won my trust very quickly, which in turn has allowed me to talk about tricky situations or issues I'm facing. You also tailor sessions to suit my working preferences and focus in on specific themes. Also, because you took the time to get to know me, you successfully navigate when I need reassurance and when I need a bit of a push to get outside my comfort zone.
