COACHING AND SUPPORT

COACHING AND SUPPORT

Are you feeling overwhelmed and lacking the clarity, confidence and energy to achieve your goals?


Our mindsets can often stand in the way of us achieving our goals. Our views about ourselves, our work and others can hinder our clarity, creativity and perspective. But it really doesn’t have to be that way. You don’t have to be controlled by the unhelpful beliefs: I can support you in making the change and unleashing your potential.


DOES THIS FEEL FAMILIAR?


  • Comparing yourself to others and feeling that their skills, abilities or voice is better than yours
  • Having the nagging voice of self-doubt and lacking confidence
  • Struggling to be visible, network and make contact
  • Being nervous, anxious and fearful far too often
  • Having the inability to say no and make decisions
  • Spending more time giving excuses and not enough on going after your goals
  • Feeling overwhelmed and lacking clarity about your future direction
  • Feeling unmotivated and unfulfilled by your work?
  • Letting your perfectionism stop you from being creative, taking action and moving at pace?
  • Being unable to achieve balance in your work/home life
  • Not asking to be paid what you are worth
  • Not knowing how you can develop your work and business.


Don’t be hard on yourself. I get this. I am a freelancer who has felt these things and worked through these challenges. I have the tee shirt! I know from experience that having a confident mindset is fundamental to freelancing. We need confidence, self-belief and trust in our decisions; then we can achieve our goals, secure clients and feel fulfilled.  

Work with me and I will support you and give you clarity and confidence in yourself and your work. As a result, you can

  • Feel better about yourself
  • Have a greater understanding of yourself, your confidence and your values
  • Have the confidence and self-belief that can enable you to achieve your goals and gain a greater sense of fulfilment
  • Recognise that your best is good enough
  • Gain the clarity you need to focus on the things that matter, develop a map for your work to achieve your short and long-term goals
  • Take back control of your life
  • Have accountability to help you keep to task in moving your work forward
  • Get rid of the negative self-talk.

How to get started?


Contact me for a free (no obligation) 30-minute call to meet me and discuss your needs.

This can lead to coaching or a program of support tailored to your needs, to help you become confident in achieving your goals.

Currently, all coaching is delivered via video conferencing.


Coaching and Support To Help You


Through coaching we can understand what is currently preventing you from achieving your goals. Being self-employed can bring different dynamics to our confidence – working in isolation, securing work, knowing and asking for our worth, making decisions, motivation, juggling and balancing several roles, and needing to be visible.  Working on mindset and confidence is therefore the best place to start as it is one of the ‘facilitators’ and key building blocks to being happily and successfully self-employed. This then allows coaching around the wider fundamentals of freelancing and self-employment and achieving your goals such as vision, strategy, delivery and structure.


You will understand how your self-beliefs, confidence and mindset are currently getting in the way. A holistic approach will ensure that the different aspects of your life are considered. Your vision and goals for your work and current blockages in achieving this. Through a range of tailored techniques, you will be supported and given the tools to regain confidence and maintain the mindset as well as actions you need to facilitate and develop yourself and work.


My hybrid skills and experience of coaching, consultancy and training, and freelancing will ensure that the coaching is supported with structured plans and strategies for you to take forward.

1:1 Coaching


A great start would be a three-session package of 60-minute bi-weekly coaching sessions. This allows us to fully understand your support needs and build a plan to build your confidence and start to look at your mindset, your vision and work towards your goals.  Further additional coaching can be bought on a session by session or block basis.

All coaching sessions are currently delivered through video conferencing.

Every session is followed up with an action plan to support you in your development over the period to the next session and beyond.

Vision to Value Coaching Program


Being self-employed can be lonely, we can feel that we are juggling a number of roles, it can feel overwhelming and it is easy to get stuck without any accountability. This ‘coaching plus program’ is more intensive, delivered over a three-month period providing 1:1 coaching with additional tailored tasks to achieve your short- and long-term goals, supported by additional support texts and emails as well as the coaching.  Over three months, the programme provides:

  • 6 x 1:1 coaching (bi-weekly over 3 months)
  • Tailored tasks, resources and actions to help you achieve your short- and long-term goals
  • On hand support through text and emails to discuss actions and ensure accountability

Why work with me


I understand that you may be apprehensive about working with someone. You need support from someone who gets it. I honestly do! I have lived experience - I’m self-employed, have worked on my own mindset, am a trained coach and have a set of skills through my own freelance consultancy work, which allows me to bring a hybrid approach of coaching and training to you whether you are self-employed, a freelancer, consultant or solopreneur.


I have direct experience of being self-employed, establishing, delivering and developing my work. I set up as a freelance consultant over 14 years ago and have successfully delivered and developed my portfolio of work and clients. It hasn’t been without its challenges, some of which came from being self-employed and others from my own mindset. However, I sought a coach’s support and know the value of working with someone who can help you have the clarity and tools to develop your mindset.


Through my consultancy, I support services to improve their efficiencies and effectiveness and respond to need. From working through every element from values to vision and delivery to outcomes, I have honed my analytical and problem-solving skills, and I have years of tested experience.


My two worlds of consultancy and freelancing come together with my experience as a coach, to provide you with a friendly, practical, understanding and tailored coach and support. I will help you achieve your goals, and be equipped with the mindset to develop and respond to the challenges of life and self-employment.
