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, together we can explore the strengths and qualities you already have (and may be overlooking) and develop clarity in the values which are true to you – what’s really important. We can then aim to re-align your unique talents and personal resources with what you’d like to happen next in your career and life.

Perhaps you are experiencing ‘failure’ which can arise from a multitude of causes: redundancy, under-performing 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 loss of confidence, stress, disillusionment, low self-esteem, confusion, 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.

My coaching recognises and respects your emotional realities and, in a supportive and confidential relationship, allows you to express them and explore the beliefs and patterns behind them. It will help you notice and build on positive resources as well, consider your options in a safe space and focus on ways forward that fit in with your values, your 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.

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.
