Coaching can also be helpful for executives who find themselves unsure of their career direction, or who have lost confidence in themselves.

If this feels like you, I’ll help you build awareness of the strengths and resources you already have (and may be overlooking) and develop options for your next steps. The benefits of greater clarity in your values and re-alignment of your unique talents and personal resources with your career, are felt across all aspects of your life.

Perhaps you are experiencing ‘failure’ which can arise from a multitude of causes: redundancy, underperfoming on a project, missing a promotion, poor relationships at work or home, not enough clients… The emotional and mental reactions to these setbacks can include confusion, loss of confidence, disillusionment, low self-esteem, apathy and sometimes shock and anger. This is natural – but it can be hard to talk about the emotional impact – and harder to know someone to talk with. It may be that you are suffering from more acute depression, grief or anxiety in which case I would encourage you to talk to a counsellor or therapist better qualified to support you through that.

My coaching recognises and respects your emotional realities and, in a supportive and confidential relationship, allows you to explore the beliefs and patterns behind them and start to plan ahead. It will help you notice and build on positive resources and focus on ways forward that fit in with your values, sources of energy, and help to rebuild your confidence and purpose.

The ‘package’ for private coaching is flexible and individually agreed, although we would recommend at least four hours of work, either face-to-face or on the phone. The agenda for the coaching will be entirely yours, both in terms of the overall aim and specific issues you’d like to focus on.

We share a few more thoughts on ‘mid-life crisis’ on our blog, here, and you can combine coaching with a day in beautiful countryside, see here.
