Elizabeth works with people who want to create success in different aspects of their professional life and are facing difficulties in achieving their goals.
People come with a challenge and she helps them find a way to solve it.
Coaching Taster Sessions: Through a series of questions, I can help you assess what your challenges are, identify where your sticking points are and create a plan of action for future sessions.
Ongoing Sessions: If you have a big challenge that is blocking you, I help you get the certainty, insight and control to move towards achieving your goals even if they feel insurmountable. We will do this through greater self-awareness, developing your own tools and methods and committing to action. We do this through regular sessions every 4 weeks over 5-6 months with agreed actions points in between.
Long term support: Once you see what is possible when I help you overcome those big challenges, and if the scope and scale of what you're going to be faced with is complex and needs further support, we work together for 6 months or a longer period, and overcome obstacles together along the way.
Working with Elizabeth has been a revelation. Each session is productive and ends with a way forward on the most difficult and troublesome of challenges. Over a period of six sessions I have grown significantly into my role and have a clearer understanding of the best ways forward.
Elizabeth listens very carefully and then over each session reviews progress drawing out the important elements calmly challenging you to think about them in a different, much clearer and focussed way, enabling you to develop your own strategies that improve personal performance.
Elizabeth was incredibly warm and welcoming during our first session and took the time to get to know me and to understand my professional aspirations as well as my current working and home life contexts. She provided a range of additional reading sources. What I needed from Elizabeth at the start of the year looked extremely different by the end. She was completely adaptable throughout this time and was still able to support me by challenging my thinking and making be consider alternative perspectives to the issues I was facing. I would have no hesitation in recommending Elizabeth, her support for me has proved utterly invaluable.
I'd reached a point in my career where I couldn't define who I was professionally and was feeling left behind. I engaged with Elizabeth to help me define my professional profile. The sessions enabled me to ask questions about myself that I had never asked before and start to appreciate my own abilities again. The coaching gave me useful strategies to take into the first few months of a new role. I wouldn't hesitate in recommending Elizabeth to anyone looking to refocus or make a change in their career path.
Returning to work was a daunting prospect after having a cancer diagnosis and treatment. Sessions with Elizabeth opened my mind to thinking about the way situations are handled and how best to reach the desired outcome. She works hard to make you think and talk about particular challenges and I have gained a greater understanding of my own abilities.
