Where will we walk?


We’ll meet in either central London or a mutually convenient location and have the coaching session as we move around on a route that I’ll plan in advance. Depending on your location I can come to you and we can start our route from there. Wherever possible I make sure we are walking in parks, green spaces or traffic-free areas like London’s South Bank.

Why open air coaching?


We often have a much better quality of thinking when we are walking or moving around, fresh ideas come to us in the outdoors and we can feel less constrained. It can be inspiring to see the sky or the trees and walking is healthy too! Outside spaces are neutral and offer us the freedom to truly open up.

What about the weather?


I will deliver your session whatever the weather so unless you choose to change the location we both need to wear appropriate protection from the elements.

Image

I don’t feel like walking today, can we do our session somewhere else?


We don’t have to do every session outside. If it suits you then we can hold some sessions indoors or by Skype/Zoom/phone. However, once you get outside and start walking you might begin to enjoy it more than you thought.

How will we each remember what we say?


You can stop for a break at any point if you want to write something (or you just feel like a rest). We might take voice notes on a phone, and I will make session notes after we finish.

What are your qualifications?


I am a fully qualified coach (equivalent to ILM Level 7) accredited by Relational Dynamics 1st and Culture at Work and I take part in regular supervision sessions.

I am also a member of the Association for Coaching and I am fully insured with Public Liability Insurance.

How do I start?


First of all, contact me via the Contact page on this site and we will arrange a one hour introductory chat, free of charge, which can be by phone, Skype or Zoom. You can tell me a bit about yourself and the kinds of things you’d like to work on in a coaching assignment. This is not an actual coaching session. We will agree a time period that I will coach you for and discuss the frequency of your sessions, and details of our first meeting. Then for our agreed time period I am your personal coach.

How do I pay you?


After our introductory chat and when we have agreed the details of our first coaching session, I’ll invoice you for your first session so that you can pay before we meet. Thereafter I’ll invoice you after each session. I prefer payment by bank transfer.
