The Coaching Process With Pure Consulting
We provide individually designed coaching programmes to fit in with your life. We specialise in the following five areas for One to One Coaching:
- Developing talent and potential
- Succession and transition to a new role
- Career coaching and decisions
- Performance Improvement
- Assisting a valued person who may be experiencing personal difficulties affecting performance.
Our personalised support and development strategy means that together we design a programme to meet your needs and time frames. Maximum flexibility is in built with a support network that includes telephone, email and web cam mentoring to accompany the programme.
Experience shows that this process gives people more acceptance and understanding of themselves and others. We have high success rates in helping an individual decide on career options and mediating cases of stress and absence from work. We use solution focused techniques and concepts that produce positive and lasting results.
By having a personal coach ¾ it allows a wider and more open exchange of information that can lead to a simpler route in taking on board what is required. We can provide coaching once per month on a fixed term, or on an ad hoc basis that allows companies to provide their staff or on an individual basis with a confidential and independent advice.
ONE-TO-ONE COACHING PROVIDES:
"Anne is a true inspiration! Her coaching enabled me to embrace that which I feared most in my professional life; public speaking. She helped me to build new levels of confidence and made me feel that I can achieve anything. Working 'from the inside out' has transformed not only the way I think & therefore behave in my professional environment, but has positively influenced my personal life too. I feel very lucky to have found Anne and have already recommended her to my colleagues and friends! Thanks again!"

A 'GOOD' COACH
The marketplace is crowded with people selling coaching services to business, so it’s important to be able to discriminate between the good, the not so good and the bad. A good coach does not necessarily need a great understanding of the business, job or challenge. But they do need to be able to:
- ensure an individual’s goals are realistic and achievable
- remain non-judgmental
- act as a willing sounding board
- use questioning techniques that build portfolio of solutions and actions
- maintain unconditional positive regard for the individual
- agree 'boundaries' for coaching and know when coaching is appropriate or not
An effective coach will invariably hold a business/ professional qualification as well as a vocational coaching qualification and be a member of a recognised body.
THE COACHING PROCESS
"I have to thank you for all of the work we did together and the help and guidance that you gave me. I regularly revisit the notes that I have made and so you are continuing to help me to grow and develop. I used the work and techniques that we had talked through last year, and I am so pleased to be able to tell you that they worked and I got the promotion.
So, a big thank you for that, but also a huge thank you for all of the help you gave me in being able to see the world from different angles. It's not exaggerating to say that I have seen a beneficial impact across all areas of my life."
Joanna King DSTL Organisation Development and Learning
- An initial discussion with the individual to agree outcomes, content, time frame, budget.
- A tailored programme is then drawn up.
- Most individuals choose to have 4 – 6 two hour sessions once a month spread over six to 9 months. However this is flexible to fit with needs, time and budget.
- The programme may then be extended continue on an 'as and when' basis.
- At each session we review, build and set new activities to ensure learning is integrated. There is also ‘work’ agreed to complete between meetings to ensure that what is learned is applied.
- All coaching is confidential and prior consent is required of the individual before any information can be discussed with another party.
- Coaching by e-mail, telephone and web cam can also be arranged.
