Professional Life Coaching Birmingham
- Bill Gordon -
Your first session is free
Our first introductory life coaching session will be free of charge so that you can see if you like me and I can see if I want to work with you.
My fees are £60 per coaching session. We will initially work together for a block of 6 sessions (the first of which is free), for which I ask payment in advance. Thereafter we can negotiate further sessions and longer term coaching support at a progressively reduced rate.
The coaching sessions
Coaching will normally take place in one-hour sessions either over the phone, by Skype, or in person at my home at an agreed frequency. Normally each coaching session will last an hour. The sessions will be supplemented, on occasion, by periodic e-mails, personal development exercises or “homework”. I also ask that you keep a personal growth diary, journal or notebook of our sessions and for writing down your thoughts between sessions. The coaching relationship normally lasts for 90 days. This gives you time to see realistic results.
Support between sessions
Please feel free to e-mail or call me between scheduled sessions if you need some urgent advice, have a problem, just need some support or want to share a success with me.
Nature of coaching:
My coaching sessions will inspire you to take specific actions to change or remedy not just your current situation but also your state of mind. To help this process along I use what is called the GROW Model.
GROW is an acronym for
G = Goals: What do you want? What is your vision or dream?
R = Reality: What is happening in your life right now?
O = Options: What could you do?
W = Will/way forward: What will you do next?
I recognize that anything you share with me will be confidential whether it be of a personal, or a business nature, the only exception being if, in my opinion, the information clearly indicates that someone is at serious risk of harm.
What Life Coaching is Not
Coaching is not to be construed as psychological counseling or therapy, although it may include, when agreed, aspects of mentoring. Coaching results are not guaranteed. You should enter our coaching relationship in the full understanding that you alone are responsible for creating your own results.
