Questions?

So this all sounds like a great idea and just what you’re looking for right?? But maybe there's still something stopping you taking the step to get in touch.

Here are a few of the most common questions my clients ask me (before they become my clients). If the answer to your question isn't here,  just drop me a line.

“I’d love to do this but I don’t have the time”


We make time for what’s important to us. Sessions are 1 hour and take place every 2-3 weeks, usually with some ‘homework’ or walking inbetween. We can always find a time that suits you, I guarantee




“I’ve never done anything like this before”


Most people haven’t! The majority of my clients are in this position and find it invigorating to have the opportunity to think about their lives in a different way. If you just carry on doing what you’re doing, then things are unlikely to change.




“I’m worried that this could resurface old anxieties and worries”


I’ll be honest, stuff might come up that makes you feel uncomfortable. But it’s important to talk about this because it’s what makes you who you are. My training in Psychodynamic Coaching can help you put this into context and work with it. I am also a Mental Health First Aider, so if anything gets too much, we can work to find further help and intervention.




“It feels indulgent spending this money on myself”


This is both a short term and a long term investment. Think about where you could be in 6 months / 12 months / 2 years! If it helps, think of it like Personal Training, for your whole self.




"How does Coaching actually work?"


Coaching gives you the opportunity to see things perhaps through a different lens, and reframe aspects of yourself and your life. A Coach will ask questions to help you bring attention to things that might be residing in your subconscious, help organise your thoughts and make a plan for change. Generally speaking, sessions are spaced 2-3 weeks apart, so as to give you time to develop inbetween sessions, whilst not losing momentum.




"Why work with Nature?"


When we're in nature, we give our brains and our bodies the opportunity to be calmer. The busy ‘command centre’ of our brain quietens down and the parts of our brain responsible for creative and strategic thinking can be more easily accessed. Put simply, we just think differently outdoors.

So being in nature offers the perfect opportunity to help us work things out, tackle some of the stuff that’s whirling round in our heads, get a different perspective and think more creatively.
