If you are unable to attend a session, for whatever reason, I will endeavour to offer you another session in the same week. However, this is subject to availability and a minimum of 24 hours notice is required. Otherwise, the session fee is payable.
Is Coaching confidential?
Coaching is completely confidential. All professionals, regardless of their profession, recognize client confidentiality. This is needed to protect the client and to improve the ability of, in this case, the coach, to give a personalized service. Even during my own supervision, client anonymity is guaranteed. I adhere to the ethical guidelines of my professional Association - the European Mentoring and Coaching Council - as embodied in its 'Global Code of Ethics'
What is the length of each session?
Each session lasts for 50 minutes; the 'therapeutic hour', which allows for reflection and note-taking after the client has left and immediately before the next one arrives.
How many coaching sessions will I need?
This very much depends on the issue(s) you bring to the coaching space. In terms of Life Coaching, I would plan for six sessions at fortnightly intervals, to allow our discussions to be taken on board and implemented into your routine. The same principle applies to Executive Coaching, but those issues can sometimes be much more complex and involve a lot more stakeholders, necessitating longer. In the first session we would map out a plan and estimate the number of sessions required to implement it, so that we both know where we are going.
