Wesley Life Coaching
My Life Coaching
With a tailored approach to suit you, my coaching is an opportunity to focus and work on issues such as life choices, professional matters, relationship goals, developing positivity, managing stress, building strength, and spirituality. Supporting you to find solutions for yourself. I will help you to explore your next career move or even business venture, what to do when you stop working, finish education or even preparation for exams and interviews.
My style of working is compassionate and collaborative, guiding you to take that step confidently and flourish along the way. My approach is not telling, assuming, or saying what will work for you. It’s helping you to take charge of your development, release your potential, and achieve the results that matter most to you.
This working style has been a common thread throughout my working life, as a social work practitioner, social work leader, and in the charity sector as safeguarding leader and consultant.
I have expertise and experience of working with children and their families through my work at the NSPCC and as a social worker and can use this coaching with children and young people and their families.
My other area of interest and expertise is working with men. I have found I am working with men more often on a whole range of matters. Whether it is relationships, work or just direction in life, we all need a bit of help sometimes. I know it can be hard to make the first step and break out of a stuck or downward routine - more so for men as it can seem like a bit of a taboo to seek help and talk, when it’s actually the bravest and most strategic thing anyone can do. It is time to begin moving forward in the right direction. My coaching offers a time and space to overcome this together. If you’re interested in hearing a bit more about my coaching please do get in touch.
One of my earliest experiences of coaching was running a football coaching school for children between four and seven. The key to my coaching success was (and is), building relationships, having fun, working together creatively, finding out about yourself, and learning.
