One-to-one & Group Coaching

  • Would you like your staff to feel more confident?
  • Could communication in your team be improved?

I run one-to-one coaching programmes for individuals and teams who need to address challenges and issues which you may be facing – for example, it could be Communication with Parents and within the Team, or Confidence in Leadership

I’m committed to helping you and your team to progress in your professional roles.

I combine Coaching with NLP within all of our Coaching programmes to help you to identify areas to work on, improve in and to feel more confident.

Coaching is a powerful process, which involves one of our Coaches talking to you, identifying key areas for growth and working with you, members of your team, or your students, to achieve clarity and direction in those key areas.

NLP stands for Neuro-Linguistic Programming and describes the dynamics between the mind (Neuro) and language (Linguistic) and how these work together and affects our behaviour and interactions (Programming).

Neuro-Linguistic Programming is a powerful technique and can be effective in self-development, promoting better awareness and control of oneself, better appreciation of the other person’s feelings, how they behave. This in turn, enables the person to show more empathy.

NLP can be used to improve understanding in meetings or group environments, or on a one-to-one basis such as interviews or supervision.

Examples of topics which we could explore:

  • Motivation
  • Action Planning
  • Time Management
  • Conflict Resolution
  • Delegation
  • The use of Language and how this can be positive or negative
  • Effective Communication skills
  • Confidence Building
  • How to Explore your Behaviour and the Behaviour of Others
  • Managing Sickness
  • Stress Management
  • Work-Life Balance
  • Challenges in the Workplace
  • Exploring Patterns of Behaviour
  • Dealing with Change
  • Learning how to say ‘No’
  • Managing Staff
  • Team Building and Team Dynamics
  • Managing Staff’s behaviour
  • Assertion skills
  • How to Challenge the Behaviour of Others positively for Better Results
  • Getting staff to use their initiative

Some benefits of NLP and Coaching:

  • You become more focused, which in turn, helps you to achieve better results at work and plan more effectively
  • Improved performance at work and personal life
  • Improved confidence
  • Progression at work and in personal life
  • Higher retention levels in the workplace

What Clients Say

Over the many years that I have worked with Yvonne, I have found her approach to be extremely professional and engaging.
She is clearly passionate about Learning and Development and the benefits this can bring to individuals, and her enthusiasm has been infectious. Whatever the subject matter of an actual training course, Yvonne brings a wealth of background skills and knowledge with her, which add credibility to scenarios – she is truly able to put herself in the customers’ shoes.
Yvonne has been very flexible and able to deliver bespoke pieces of work, meeting with key stakeholders to determine content and style of a training intervention, and has been most amenable to changes in the service requested.
The feedback from delegates has been consistently high, and Yvonne takes great care to feedback any issues arising from training courses in a sensitive manner, appreciating the need to balance confidentiality with opportunities to improve business processes. I would definitely recommend anyone who is exploring options for a quality training intervention to pick up the phone and discuss their needs with Yvonne!
