Needs-based Coaching with Graham Timmins

A decision to hire a coach is a commitment to oneself, a way of taking better care of one’s needs, such as for support, understanding and empowerment. With that support, we can mobilise more of our inner resources, move towards creating the life we desire, and make more of a difference in the world.

Regular dialogue – in person, on the phone or by Skype – is an essential part of the rhythm of coaching, but is typically not where the major shifts take place. Ideally the wheels are turning 7 days a week on the coaching journey; the weekly coaching session is like refuelling the tank.  Of course, you might also want to check the route map at other times, or get new ideas when you run into an obstacle, and a good coach is there for you on those occasions as well.

I’m a Leo, and my style of coaching is conversational and light hearted, even as we sometimes face major life issues. I will be by your side and on your side of course, but also ready to challenge you, on the assumption that you are motivated to grow. My coaching is not a substitute for pure empathy or for deep therapy work, if you need that first. I also aim to keep diagnosis and analysis at a minimum; I’m more interested in supporting you to focus on where you are now and where you want to go next than on delving too much into history.

So, what you pay for is like a monthly subscription service. Included in my fee:

  • four half-hour coaching sessions – you call me at the agreed time, on landline, mobile or skype as suits you
  • e-mails, text messages and emergency calls during the week – please keep these to less than 5 minutes each
  • worksheets, study guides and aide-mémoires for specific areas of challenge and NVC learning
  • my ongoing interest and caring. It really matters to me that you get where you want to go, because that satisfies my own longing to contribute and to see change in the world.

My fees for 2016 are £200 / €250 a month, payable in advance. I offer a free 15 minute consultation to help you decide whether this is something you might want to commit to.
