Client questions

Client questions

I work with a range of clients – including senior managers, junior execs, small business creators, mindfulness explorers and anyone else struggling with difficult experiences – across the UK and internationally.

 

Work with me to navigate more effectively through challenge, choice and change. For example:

  • Finding more balance and integration in your work/life;
  • Navigating transitions, e.g. review/re-engage at ‘milestone’ ages, during lifestage shifts and new year planning; career change; new leadership roles; self-identity questions;
  • Processing life-shocks and lifestyle disruptions, e.g. post-Covid work practices, redundancy, burnout, health issues, relocation, relationship rupture;
  • Supporting employees through their personal experience of organisational change programmes: listening to inner resistance; understanding ‘status quo bias’; transforming tension into creative emergence and opportunity.

 
 

One of my areas of focus is helping people to become more integrated in their way of living and working.

These are the kinds of questions that people often bring to my coaching sessions:

 

  • I’m facing a particular challenge at the moment (e.g. related to health, work, relationships, finances).  What can I do to resolve this situation or to support myself more effectively through it?
  • I need to make some big changes in my life, but I’m feeling overwhelmed and stuck.  Where do I start and how do I move forward?
  • I’m feeling under pressure to make an important decision.  How can I consider all the options and make the best choice?
  • I’m not making enough progress with some specific goals I’ve set for myself.  Where am I going wrong? What would work better?
  • I worry that I’m not fulfilling my true potential.  How can I make my life/career more successful or meaningful?
  • I know I have much to be grateful for, but somehow it’s not enough and I feel empty.  Why am I feeling like this? 

Here are some more examples of client challenges I regularly work with and can help with.
