Do you want to THRIVE under pressure? Have a clear head?

The programme is right for you if you are eager to address both your mind set and your skills set. If….

Your mind is playing havoc

N

You can’t think straight or clearly anymore – it feels like you’re wading through treacle – and you’ve got to fix this.

N

You’re struggling to see your value and constantly doubt you can do this, and it’s time to turn your self-belief around.

N

You wake up each day exhausted, feeling like you’ve had ten rounds in a boxing ring, and you know that you deserve to feel so much better. You are committed to understanding and taking action on what to do so you can finally get the sleep you need.

N

You’re frustrated, you’re stuck, and you’re at a loss at what to do. You just need expert guidance and someone who has genuinely got your back, to find your way again.

Your skills are ready to be taken up a gear

N

You’re frenzied in your pace of work but don’t feel like you’re getting anything done. You are ready to redirect your energy into more fruitful approaches, and simply need to learn how to get back to being the productive phenomenon you love to be.

N

You know you need to delegate more, to develop your impact and presence, to speak up and fight for your team and ideas. You are nervous but with the right support you are ready to take action. You just need to know what to do to leave behind unhelpful habits, and build the new behaviours you’re eager to practice.

N

You want to learn how to ‘network’ better so you can make the contacts and build your profile and business without feeling vulnerable, anxious, boring or inauthentic.

N

Securing recognition for yourself and/or funding for your business is your top priority, but your fear of rejection keeps flaring up and crippling your progress. You need to learn how to master your nerves and build your confidence in high pressure situations and you are committed to sorting this as soon as possible.

N

You recognise that the best investment you can make for your business and your career is in yourself.

“Amy has a talent which I rarely encounter in business…. She is a role model to me due to her ability to balance strength, wisdom and kindness.”

Amy has a talent which I rarely encounter in business, a feminine strength which is pragmatic and compassionate. She has extensive knowledge of the way the business world works and a vision for enabling a new breed of leaders to shine. For this reason I have been incredibly fortunate to have Amy as a leadership coach, she has helped me to grow in confidence, particularly when managing a multidisciplinary team with a wide variation of personalities and experience; and she has given me tools to use when faced with many potentially daunting situations in business.

Our coaching sessions over the last 6 months have enabled me to know where to put trust in the people around me, allowing me to lose a fear of vulnerability, instead recognising how my strengths balance with the strengths of others and how to ask for help. Now I know how to move through those more lonely times and to celebrate the good times. Amy’s insight and endeavour in our sessions has changed my life for the better.

“I came to Amy with feelings of self-doubt, lacking in confidence and a general feeling of anxiety about my abilities as a Director… Amy helped me to find contentment in my life again.”

I came to Amy with feelings of self-doubt, lacking in confidence and a general feeling of anxiety about my abilities as a Director. I was suffering from the classic “Imposter Syndrome”. Throughout my time with Amy, she has made me realise that leadership comes in all sorts of packages and through a process of discussion, inner-reflection, self-exploration and learning, she has enabled me to see excellence and strength in myself as a leader. I would always leave our discussions with a sense of purpose, feeling reinvigorated and refocused, ready to face the next challenge, but more importantly I would feel happy. Amy helped me to find contentment in my life again.

“I received some amazing feedback that I wouldn't have been able to achieve without Amy’s outstanding support”

Amy’s approach with me over the two phases of coaching we have completed together has been outstanding. Her ability to listen to you as an individual and to steer your thoughts has really helped me add clarity to my career pathway and development.

I am very pleased to have had the acknowledgement of my subsequent progress within my annual review – couldn’t have been much better.

I received some amazing feedback that I wouldn’t have been able to achieve if we hadn’t spent our time together.

How Does It Work?

As your partner and coach, I will support you in understanding and removing what is in the way of what you really want.

w

We begin with a half hour discovery call by phone or Skype, taking an overview of what’s brought you to coaching; reviewing your current challenges and opportunities at work and beyond; and looking ahead to what you really want to achieve. Why is it so important to you? Who is that you really want to be?

Why is it so important to you? Who is that you really want to be?

We will identify what needs action and attention.  I will help you to establish clear, concrete, measurable goals.  We will connect you to your insight, intuition, and natural wisdom. There is nothing which you cannot shift.

I will hold you accountable to a manageable plan designed just for you, as I don’t believe in a one-size-fits-all coaching approach.  

I will hold you accountable to a manageable plan designed just for you, as I don’t believe in a one-size-fits-all coaching approach.  

  • I know you are naturally creative and resourceful and have so many answers within you already.  
  • I believe in your immense capacity to achieve far more than you currently believe possible.   
  • I will listen with understanding and absolute confidentiality.
  • I will create an environment to enhance all that you already have, and if you choose, share further knowledge and strategies to help you get to where you want to go as quickly as possible.
  • I won’t solve your problems for you, but will guide you to solving them.
  • I will support you fully on your journey to achieving measurable positive results, whilst you understand and agree that you are responsible for creating results.
  • I will support you to identify your greatest goals for our work together. The only limit is your imagination.  Example themes include:

✓   Clarity and focus on the dreams you are going to make your reality
✓   Calm confidence and ability to manage your thoughts and behaviours under pressure
✓   Renewed energy and vitality
✓   A powerful, grounded self-belief to replace feelings of being a fraud and not good enough
✓   Authentic impact and presence – building your natural authority in meetings
✓   Strength of decision making
✓   Professional recognition and public profile
✓   Strong presentation expertise
✓   Ninja leadership skills enabling you to delegate, direct or support at will
✓   How to manage positively, empowering your team whilst holding them to account effectively
✓   Networking prowess – making network opportunities work beautifully for you
✓   Assertiveness skills to ensure you achieve those things which matter most
✓   Conflict management with grace and ease
✓   Optimised productivity to accelerate your results

l

I will design a programme that works best for you. It will be tailored to meet your dreams and schedule, and – critically – your current strengths and resources.

If you are clear-headed, focused and raring to go,

✓   Four coaching sessions of two hours, over four to six months will serve you powerfully.  We’ll meet face to face in Bristol or London; or via Skype, Zoom or phone.
✓   Of course, we can choose a shorter, more intensive schedule if appropriate.

 

If you are feeling vulnerable and wobbly, we’ll work together differently.  To give you the support you need to make the positive lasting change you are seeking, I am likely to propose:

✓    Twelve therapeutic sessions of one hour, over three to six months, either face to face in my private practice in Bristol, or via Skype or Zoom if best for you.
✓   For many of my clients I suggest a combined approach, starting with four weekly therapeutic sessions of an hour to help you feel strong, centred, and primed to move to three coaching sessions of two hours, over the following two to six months.

 

Programme fees start at £497 but are typically £1,397 and above depending on requirements.  Together we’ll design the right path for you.  Coaching is a magnificent investment in yourself and your future.

“Amy may have a gentle touch, but she has helped me get a firm grip on things….
I can’t recommend Amy highly enough!”

I’d not paid attention to the increasing levels of stress and overwhelm that I was feeling, yet was aware that I wasn’t able to bring the strategic focus to my business that was needed.

Then I met Amy and immediately realised that there was a healthy connection  and understanding of where I was at.  Amy was relentless in her questioning and follow-up in the gentlest possible way.  Her ability to get away with the tough questions and pursue them to their healthy resolution is rooted in the trust she builds up.  She may have a gentle touch but helped me to get a firm grip on things…

Can’t recommend Amy highly enough!

What’s the difference between a therapeutic session and a coaching session?

During a therapeutic session, we will work on easing any stress or anxiety, to help calm your mind, and start the process of enabling you to get back to your best where you think clearly and can make good, powerful decisions.  

It will be an immensely nurturing experience, as I help you reconnect to your innate strengths, and replace any negative, critical thinking with a more positive, relaxed, and open solution-focus.

We will work together to build new behaviours and thought patterns.  Whilst we will have a clear end in mind for our work, our focus will be on identifying and planning apparently tiny steps towards relatively immediate, manageable goals, such as moving closer towards getting a good night’s sleep, or waking up feeling more relaxed, happy and looking forward to the week ahead.

I am an experienced Registered Clinical Hypnotherapist and so, if you are in agreement, I might include the benefit of trance at the end of your therapeutic session.  Using gentle music, restful language patterns, and positive images and metaphors, I will guide you to a natural, relaxed state where you can choose to start to embed the positive changes you seek in your thinking and behaviours.

In order to help you reset your stress levels and build positive momentum, we will work together on a weekly basis initially, for sessions lasting an hour.  In this way, you will feel supported and taken care of, whilst fully empowered to move forward and be in control of your recovery.

For coaching, I tend to work with clients for two hours every month, in a more intensive, energised manner.  Your goals will look to your horizon and your ultimate future. You will always be assured of my absolute belief in you, and I will challenge you to stretch yourself beyond your comfort zone.  I will be kind but firm. I will hold you accountable to the commitments you’ve made to yourself. I am uncompromising in my commitment to support you to achieve what you set out to change, or something even better.

We are likely to meet every four to six weeks, allowing you sufficient time to work towards your goals between coaching sessions and create measurable results. Together we will help you achieve sustainable change.

"I chose to work with Amy because I wanted someone who would support me personally as well as professionally…. I can highly recommend Amy to anyone who wants to step up the pace and energy of their work in a sustainable and positive manner."

I chose to work with Amy because I wanted someone who would support me personally as well as professionally and she has done exactly that. She has brought masses of energy, focus and determination into both aspects of my life. She is unfailingly positive and supportive while also challenging me to push myself further, and has a knack for quickly identifying the sticking points in your life and helping you make a plan to address them. I can highly recommend Amy to anyone who wants to step up the pace and energy of their work in a sustainable and positive manner.

“Amy’s coaching and hypnotherapy helped me clarify my priorities and build me up from a low place... I had some delightful aha moments… and now have a cushion of self-belief and resilience.”

Amy held my hand through some very tricky and multi-layered life decisions. Her coaching and hypnotherapy helped me clarify my priorities and build me up from a low place.  She helped me weave new notions into my inner narrative that I had not dared to consider. I had some delightful aha moments with her that will prevent me from wasting much of my energy in the future.  It is truly on a cushion of self-belief and resilience built with Amy that I ride into a very different sunset. I will definitely return to her if ever I need to “reset” or really need to feel like someone has got my back or just for her delightfully uplifting company.

“The way you have helped me and the way you work is truly remarkable and very empowering for the client… Thank you so much for everything, you have been a big part of me transforming my life.”

I want to thank you for all the help you have given me not just with this but since I first came to see you. The tools you have given me are tools for life. I think I could have done it on my own but it would have been so, so much harder and miserable to. You helped me to see the positives and actually it was not as much of a mountain as it seemed. The way you have helped me and the way you work is truly remarkable and very empowering for the client. 

It is great a year on to sit here and think, I have done it and can continue to do it. It has been a roller coaster year with work and there have been many stresses, as we all have in life. But to come through it all and stay strong has given me a huge amount of confidence.

Thank you so much for everything, you have been a big part of me transforming my life.
