What is coaching?
What are the benefits?
Coaching is about you wanting something in your life to change. This means increasing your self-awareness, identifying the choices available to you and ultimately, finding and acting on your own solutions. As Jenny Rogers (2016) suggests coaching is ‘choice in action’ and it can close the gap between where you are now, your current state and where you want to be, your potential.
As your coach, I work with you to co-create a new way of being. Coaching addresses the whole person – past, present and future. Focusing on the here and now and dipping into elements of the past, together we can shape future possibilities.
Examples of change might be
- Deciding your next career move
- Addressing difficult current work / life challenges
- Overcoming feeling ‘stuck’
- Managing redundancy and the next steps
- Preparing to leave full time work or considering retirement
Through your commitment to change, the benefits of working with the right coach enables
- Greater insights about yourself and others, in and beyond the workplace
- Increased confidence to pursue your career and life goals
- A more energised approach to pursuing these goals
- Greater authenticity, aligning with your core values
- You to become a better version of yourself
Meet Dr Karen Llewellyn
I understand the challenges women face in navigating their career and lives more generally. This understanding is derived from careers in secondary, further and higher education, in senior academic and professional/management roles. I have also worked in sports coaching and administration and in business as a marketing manager for a leading international academic publisher.
Therefore as a career coach, it’s not surprising that I specialise in working with professional women in education, business and sport. My approach is values-led, based on authenticity, compassion and trust, creating a safe, non-judgemental and supportive space for our coaching partnership to flourish. Through listening and insightful questioning, I encourage you to increase your self-awareness by exploring and challenging any self-limiting beliefs and assumptions, to bring about increased confidence and desirable behavioural change. By inviting you to explore your values and beliefs, it’s possible to develop different ways of thinking, behaving and managing yourself and others.
What we do
We have an initial conversation to discuss without obligation your desired change or the challenge you are facing and how we can work together
We establish your goals, terms and length of our coaching partnership according to your needs, and draw up an agreement. Then we arrange and meet for our first coaching session
We actively commit to and engage in the coaching process, be open to creative tools and techniques to move you forward and complete any agreed actions in between sessions
We review and evaluate our coaching partnership at the mid-point and at the end - to measure how far your desired change or goals have been realised, to inform future actions and reach closure
