Questions ?


Q. What benefit will I get from coaching?

Clients have told me that after coaching their thinking is sharper, they plan better and their decision-making improved. At work they find this has meant they perform better with increased confidence. Generally they report they are less stressed and have a better work-life balance.

Q. What happens in a coaching session?

Coaching is a confidential, safe space to talk through the issues that are bothering you.  My role as coach is to listen and to ask questions designed to help you think things through.  Thinking things through is hard work and I support you to do this using different tools.

Q. Where do you your coaching?

This would be one of the things we would discuss and agree at the start.  There are several options: a meeting room at your office or in a central London venue.  I also coach over Skype and the telephone.

Q. How much do you charge?

It depends on your route to coaching and any venue and travel costs incurred and if you are being sponsored by your organisation as an investment in your future or if you are self-funding, in which case I offer a discount.  I aim to achieve a balance between income and access to coaching.

Q. I’m not sure about coaching?

I’m happy to talk to you about it – just contact me. At the end of our conversation if I think coaching isn’t for you, I’ll tell you and signpost you to other services which might help. If you decide coaching isn’t for you that’s ok. I won’t take offence.

Q. Why did you decide to become a Coach?

I became a coach to help other people define their own success and then achieve it. I developed the professionals skills I’d gained in career to date through formal coaching training. You can see my full career history on LinkedIn

Q. Are you properly qualified coach?

I am a professional, qualified coach. I have a Practitioner Diploma in Executive Coaching awarded by the Academy of Executive Coaching and I do more training every year to develop my skills and the range of coaching tools I use.  I’m also accredited by the International Coach Federation 

Q. What’s the difference between coaching and counselling?

There are books about the question of the difference between these two helpful services. As I see it counselling is about getting a better understanding of why things are the way they are and often involves looking back to childhood. Coaching is about reviewing life now and making changes going forward.

Q. Do you have a code of practice?

I do. It’s here.

Q. Why is your website called Short Stories Tall Coach?

Well I’m tall (5′ 10″), and I post short stories on this website. These short stories are designed to inform, support, amuse and inspire.
