WHAT IS COACHING?
Coaching is a practice for gaining clarity and creating sustained change. It's a unique partnership, one where as coach I will guide, support and challenge you to build an understanding of your true self. The guiding principle is that you hold all the answers and have the strength to build a future beautifully designed by your own mind. Sunny Inside coaching utilises the Transformational TM model, focused on creating a deep awareness of ones true self, changing perspective and motivating you to create sustainable change. My approach is warm, fun, energised and respectful.
In practical terms, Sunny Inside coaching is done through a series of conversational techniques, including thought provoking questioning, active listening, reflecting and observation. Sunny Inside coaching is a confidential process, one built on trust, non-judgement, honesty and accountability.
WHAT SUNNY INSIDE IS NOT
There is a serious crisis with mental health. Many people are active in therapy for the treatment of mental illness and it's important to identify the major distinction between coaching and therapy. Unlike therapy, coaching doesn't seek to treat mental illness and does not delve into the client's past, it's all about looking forwards and focusing on future possibilities. If I feel a client is too stuck in the past or is demonstrating signs of mental illness, I will pause the sessions and invite a discussion around appropriate next steps.
With the founding principle of each client having their own answers, coaching is not about me imparting 'advice', sharing knowledge or passing judgement on particular narratives - it differs greatly from mentoring, counselling and other forms of support professionals.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS?
Sunny Inside is focused on helping you set truly inspiring goals, inspiring and absolutely achievable. It is a total JOY to see clients overcome burdensome blockers and shift their limiting self beliefs. Working with me will help create clarity, direction and purpose in your life and the impact of that will vibrate through every nook and cranny of your world.
The ICF's primary research found 80% of people who receive coaching report increased self-confidence, and over 70% benefit from improved work performance, relationships, and more effective communication skills. 86% of companies report that they recouped their investment on coaching and more (source: ICF)
I'm already excited by what you'll unearth.
HOW MUCH, WHERE & HOW LONG?
Typically, our Sunny Inside coaching partnership will last between 6-8 sessions on a bi-weekly or monthly schedule. Fees are charged on a per session basis, we can discuss rates and terms during our consultation call. Each session lasts 60 minutes and is done either over Google Hangouts or face to face (Hertfordshire / London). If joining remotely, I encourage all clients to sit somewhere comfortable where they're certain they can speak freely and remain undisturbed for the full hour.
WHAT IS THE ICF?
The International Coach Federation (ICF), founded in 1995, is the leading global organisation dedicated to advancing the coaching profession by setting high standards, providing independent certification and guidance for a worldwide network of credentialed coaches. Coaches are responsible for their continued learning and development, where all learning is underpinned by the ICFs core values: Professionalism. Collaboration. Humanity. Equity.
Sunny Inside strives to uphold the ICFs Code of Ethics.
Are you ready to feel Sunny Inside? Do you know that change is needed, but need help to gain clarity on where to even start? If yes, then let's have a chat. I won't be everyone's cup of tea and that's OK. I'm energised, optimistic, playful, gentle when needed and above all passionate.
I'd love to have a complimentary consultation call with you to hear more about your world and the change you want to see. During our 30 minutes, we can discuss your expectations, I can share more about myself and the process and we can go from there.
