Why Coaching?

Coaching gives you an opportunity to identify what you want, where you want to go and how you might get there.  A coach can help you keep on track.

My role

I will actively listen to you; acknowledging and encouraging you to gain a deeper sense of what it is you are trying to say.  I will draw together threads and patterns which emerge; giving you a different view of your experience, a different perspective for you to explore.

I will respectfully challenge what I hear; if it strikes me as being relevent and in response to what you are saying.

Your role

The aim is for you to find the answers from within yourself; answers that are based on your values, preferences and unique perspective. These will be the answers that work for you.  You are the catalyst for change and your motivation will come from within.

Take the next step

If you are interested in taking the next step; have a think about how you would like to  do this.  There are three options:

Walk and Talk

Sit and Talk


You might have a preference for what environment suits you best to talk; our roles will remain the same for each of these options.   If you’re not sure, then give me a call on 07814 735970 and we can consider it together.

Once you have decided which option to go for, we will arrange a mutually beneficial date and time to have our first introductory session.  This will be on the phone, for half an hour and will be free.  It will enable us to confirm that we want to work together; and whether coaching is an appropriate approach to use.

If we are both happy to proceed, you will book 1-6 sessions,which you will pay for and timetable in advance.  The session can be between 1-1.5hrs long.   You can space them out, as you prefer. Some clients have opted for every fortnight, others every month; whatever would feel most useful to you.

If you cancel within 24 hrs, you lose that session.  If I cancel, then I will give you a refund.  If we give each other more notice than 24hrs, we will rearrange another date.


The fee, per hour, is £40.

Why me?

With an academic background (First Class, Honours) in the Person Centred Approach, I add substantial knowledge and experience in Emotional Intelligence, Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP), Appreciative Inquiry, Action Learning and Mindfulness.  You can find out a bit more about my work through my business website  You can also check my Linked In profile for recommendations.

I will support and challenge you to find ways to make your life work better for you, at home and/or at work.

Andrea’s coaching left me feeling more confident about myself and less paranoid about the rest of the world.
