How I work
What will happen during my initial consultation?
During your consultation I will ask you a series of questions and respond to your queries. This initial call will enable us to determine whether my style of coaching is suitable for you. If you decide to proceed we will agree what it is that you would like to work on and plan a date for us to meet.
Most people achieve a good result within 6 - 8 weeks. I offer a 6 Week "Future You Programme" with the option of follow up sessions if required.
Booking is essential.
What will happen during my coaching sessions?
During your first session I will spend time getting to know you and will ask you to let me know what it is that you would like help with. At the end of our first session we will plan future sessions and an outline of the areas that we will work on together.
During our sessions I will focus on what is important to you and what you would like to achieve, this could be a personal or professional goal.
I will encourage the exploration of your conscious thoughts and feelings and self-evaluation. I use a range of techniques and processes that can help you to widen your perceptions and remove any limiting beliefs that you may hold about yourself. These techniques can help you to make desired changes and achieve what you want from life.
I will provide friendly, supportive guidance throughout, coaching you to find your own solutions, set clear goals, that are relevant to you and formulate a plan of action.
At the end of each session I will provide you with homework/practice tasks i.e. the practice of simple techniques or self reflection.
Finally we will review your learning, reflect on your growth and transformation.
Further follow up sessions will be available at your request, if and when required.
Where will my coaching sessions take place?
I am based in Glastonbury and often meet my private clients at my home, in local cafes or other places that you may feel comfortable in.
I currently offer:
Face to face sessions in Glastonbury.
Face to face sessions, in and around the surrounding towns and villages of Glastonbury. (Approximate 10 mile radius).
As a coach I am guided by the following principles:
Listening is more important than talking.
Everyone perceives the world in different ways.
It is important that I understand exactly what it is that you wish to achieve or change.
Your past does not equal your future.
Your beliefs are the only thing that can hold you back.
I cannot provide the answers.
I will not criticise or judge.
My sessions are completely confidential.
Some needs cannot be met by coaching and I will inform you if this is the case.
“Our session with Debbie was most helpful and she provided a safe and well-structured space for us to address the issues that we brought. I would recommend her service to anyone needing a skilled and positive person to help them work through a life transition issue”.
Sarah - Chartered Senior Consultant Clinical Psychologist
“Through patience and careful guidance, Debbie has enabled me to creatively plan out achievable goals to reach my dreams and aspirations. Debbie has taught me a range of skills and techniques which I have employed in my personal and professional life. I have been able to be more methodical in my planning and thinking from working with Debbie.
Debbie has a real knack of reading people’s behaviours and strengths, she uses this insight to tailor guidance and coaching support. I highly recommend Debbie for any coaching or creative planning needs you may have. I thoroughly enjoy working with Debbie and spending time with her – she has a sense of humour to die for!”
Heather - Senior Commissioning Officer
“Debbie has enabled me to achieve a variety of personal and professional goals in my life. On meeting Debbie she immediately radiates inspiration, her approach is different and exciting, and she helps you to think outside of the box using unique approaches. Debbie genuinely has your interests at heart and is motivated by helping you to achieve your full potential. Debbie puts you at ease and actively listens in a non-judgemental way, her coaching and the sharing of her knowledge has had a lasting affect on my life”.
Nicky - Retired Nurse
"My session with Debbie was invaluable as I needed to organise my mind and business. The session was amazing and I now have a clear focus and plan of all the things I need to do to attain my goals. Debbie explains everything in simple terms and makes you really think about what you need to do rather than making suggestions. I have benefited so much from just one session and feel inspired and empowered".
Gill - Creative Director
"Debbie helped me to reconnect with my inner congruence using simple but powerful techniques that I can use in everyday life. I felt encouraged and supported by her warmth, expertise and wisdom. I highly recommend a consultation if you, like me, need guidance to get back in touch with your own inner guidance".
