The Birthing Coach

I work with mums to be and their birthing partners to ensure a stress-free pregnancy and comfortable birth. My mission is to support my clients to believe in themselves, take control and determine their own destiny. Birthing partners will quickly learn how to utilise their special relationship with Mum to inform bespoke ‘scripts’ whilst leaving ‘Mum’ in control.

The Classroom Coach

NLP technology is an effective toolkit that transforms classrooms. After seventeen years in school leadership, I completed my  first NLP Practitioner Course with Richard Bandler. Thereafter, I returned to the classroom for three years to fully realise the positive impact of NLP on learning.

“Spell Well” is my bespoke version of the NLP Spelling Strategy. My action research, celebrated at the launch of their book Teaching Excellence by Kate Benson and Richard Bandler, has proven that this methodology can support all learners to spell rapidly. This model empowers the children to lead the main part of the lesson, so that the teacher is “free” to  accelerate learning for individual children, as necessary.

NLP in the classroom:

  • Leads to positive self belief and the art of confidence
  • Ensures emotional states for learning
  • Empowers teachers to be authentic
  • Enables learners to train their brain
  • Yields exceptional learning outcomes

The Study Coach

This aspect of my work began with two learners at different points in their academic careers. Both had become stuck, opting out of lectures or lessons, getting further behind and neither could see a way out. They had both turned to “other” pastimes to alleviate their fears of failing and had each found themselves in a vicious circle. Coaching supported them to lead their own success.

Both students were quickly motivated and back on track after a single session. I am proud to say that neither student has looked back.

Sessions last between 60 and 90 minutes and can take place either face to face or on line. 

Study coaching can help:

  • Set realistic goals.
  • Know where they were, where they wanted to be and what they needed to do to get there
  • Remember the skills and resources they already had and how to access new ones
  • Increase their self-motivation
  • Prepare confidently for the exam/assessment process

The Job Coach

Sessions last between 60 and 90 minutes and can take place either face to face or on line. 

Career Coaching  helps you to:

  • Decide that next career move and how to get there
  • Pen a convincing application and secure an interview
  • Rehearse your best interview/audition performance yet!
