Coaching for Business Professionals
‘Empowered’, ‘refreshed’, ‘a revelation’, ‘transformed’, ‘confident’ and ‘in control’ are all words that professionals have used to describe the effect that coaching has had on them. Professionals welcome the opportunity to have dedicated time to find solutions and support from an impartial and informed critical friend to do this.
I work with professionals to both give and get the best from their working lives. I work with them to become more confident, to take control of their workload and to develop techniques to handle challenging situations and people. They gain higher self-esteem, greater job-satisfaction and performance, and deeper feelings of wellbeing.
Professionals play an active role throughout their coaching sessions which are flexible to support them to find realistic solutions. Solutions are often the result of a ‘lightbulb’ moment, and can involve making practical changes, finding fresh perspectives and modifying thoughts and responses to certain events.
I have an open and friendly style. asking questions to prompt, challenge and clarify thinking and introducing NLP techniques where appropriate. My coaching is grounded in the real-world, combining coaching skills with experience of life, business and education and the insights of many previous clients. I am fully qualified and insured, and a member of the National Council of Psychotherapists.
“I was burnt out, exhausted and unable to do much outside of work. Seeing Sue has transformed my life. I have a much more balanced approach to work, which has been commented on my many colleagues, and resulted in multiple promotions as a result of my ability to cope with more, without it affecting my mental health ….. Sue describes herself as a ‘sounding board’ and ‘critical friend’ and I would say that is spot on… Her help is grounded in real world experience, and there’s nothing ‘fluffy’ about her approaches.”
