Coaching is about challenging the way we think, work and interact with others and about discovering new, more effective, exciting or innovative ways of achieving our goals.
Itís also about changing. Not standing still, but moving on and moving up.
Supervision is about promoting ethical practice, enhancing competence, supporting individual practitioners and ensuring your clients receive the best service possible.
It involves reflecting on work done in the past in order to influence practice in the future.
Training is about learning new skills, gaining new knowledge and developing expertise.
Linking training interventions with follow-up coaching helps to embed new skills, implement new thinking and bring about sustained change.
Action learning is about enabling groups to take responsibility for their own work and actions and about assisting them to integrate theoretical learning with real-life issues.
When used within organisations it enhances collaborative working and supports the implementation of change.

I can honestly recommend coaching to anyone who needs time to step back from the minutia of work and to reflect on their own specific objectives.
Anyone who enters a coaching programme thinking that the coach will provide the answers is plain wrong. However Liz enabled me to find the answers from within which turned out to be a much more satisfying achievement!
I have found the time spent with Liz incredibly useful. It has been invaluable to have time away from my normal working day to explore issues. I have changed the way I work and moved forward in my career as a result of these sessions.
Liz helped me see my full capability, giving me confidence to achieve appointment to the Board post
As the process was so open and personal, focused on me, the strategies that have been developed feel part of me. They started off as a conscious guide and have become part of my own reflexes, enabling me to achieve the personal and professional development that I aspire to.
"Liz is a really empowering and helpful supervisor. I like her flexibility, openness and transparency. She guides, challenges and supports me and most of all, empathises and stands alongside me. At the end of a session I've reached a point that in many ways I already knew but hadn't quite articulated or fully realised before. She helps me to tap into my own wisdom."
Could I just reiterate how much I enjoyed the time management workshop. I am already putting ideas into practice and with some success!
Liz had a great way of looking at things from a completely different perspective to mine which allowed me to contextualise problems and solve them far more easily than I had been able to before.
ďThe coaching has made a real difference to me in terms of my current role but also in being able to determine what direction I want my future career to take.Ē
From the very first session I was able to make changes to my day-to-day working practices that have been invaluable. Thank you Liz!
Liz has the ability to synthesise information and ask just the right questions that in turn encourage you to reflect upon your own practices and steadily begin to alter them.
Thank you for all your help - you've been brilliant in helping me to get my head together in preparation for interviews and I've enjoyed working with you. If anyone asks me where they can get help with interview coaching, I'll be recommending you!
I was somewhat sceptical about coaching but I found our time together to be one of my best investments in personal development. Lizís coaching helped me to unlock time, become more effective in my professional role and, more importantly, it enabled me to enjoy my life outside of work.
Liz helped me to gain focus and uncover different ways to resolve situations at work. I found coaching a supportive, motivating and cathartic experience - Thank you!
"I have gained greater focus in the tasks required to manage my team, and confidence to put plans into action."
Coaching has had a big impact on me. I think it is deep and will be long lasting. It has helped me to make some very big personal and career decisions.
Coaching helped me to understand the benefits of putting into words the feelings and thoughts that were in my mind.
These coaching sessions have served to identify several vital issues that have had a direct impact on my performance. They were skilfully conducted and appropriately assessed.
Iíve found the coaching a valuable and rewarding experience. The greatest value has been talking through some self-limiting beliefs and gaining more understanding of whatís holding me back. Thank-you!
The benefits I gained from my coaching sessions were enormous. They helped me to find focus and set goals as well as learning another valuable leadership skill.
The thing I valued most about these coaching sessions was the opportunity to reflect and discuss matters with a 3rd party who was independent from work, family and friends and able to provide both challenge and support.
Liz provides executive coaching for MBA students at Bradford University School of Management. Feedback suggests students find this to be a highly worthwhile and effective experience. I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending her.
Liz has undertaken several projects for us over the last four years including developing our corporate induction programme, delivering a variety of training programmes and assisting us with mapping our business processes. Her work is of a high standard; keenly undertaken and professionally presented.
Lizís work was always to a very high standard and delivered in a timely fashion. She consistently produced quality documentation following only an outline brief from myself. Above all, Liz was always pleasant, helpful and informative and I can wholeheartedly recommend her to prospective clients.
This coaching workshop should be compulsory for all managers. It is the most useful and high impact course I have ever been on. It has changed the way I manage work and personal relationships for the better.
Coaching enabled me to build my confidence and take a much more hands-on approach to my career development. Liz is a star and I would recommend her to anyone.
Coaching has been the single most empowering personal development I have ever done.
My coaching sessions with Liz gave me focus and direction. She unlocked the motivation and energy I needed to tackle issues I had been Ďparkingí and which had been holding me back. Thank you, Liz!
You have a gift for making dreams happen. You believe in me and that helps me believe in me too.
Liz was fantastic coaching me, simply the best coaching session Iíve ever had. Thank you so much. This has lifted something that has been around since I was 13 years old. I am indebted to you.
