Coaching and mentoring offers space for reflection, review and  planning next steps. It is an effective way to cut through those difficult times causing personal dilemmas.

Coaching and Mentoring for individuals

What is coaching?

Dedicated time focused on your needs, offering that often much needed time to reflect on 'next steps'. It is non- judgemental and makes no assumptions.  It is not prescriptive or instructional.   My service offers structured conversations that challenge through questions often around those beliefs or uncertainties that might be stopping you moving forward.

Example of areas of focus might be:

  • Moving out of a situation you feel 'stuck in'
  • Difficult relationships
  • Starting a new venture or project
  • Self-confidence and addressing self-limiting beliefs or behaviours
  • Career planning
  • Self-confidence
  • Improving your ability to manage work life balance and managing your time

What is mentoring? 

Mentoring offers more support over the longer term allowing a person to explore in more depth developmental issues. It is a specialist service for individual social workers or organisations wanting support for example in the first year of the AYSE or social workers taking a next steps into new roles.

Carol tutored me as part of post qualifying programme in social work and I do not think I would have passed without her support. I found Carol to be extremely knowledgeable and dedicated. Carol was very patient and took a lot of time out to discuss my assignments and suggest theory that would enhance my grade and thinking process. I would highly recommend Carol for any mentoring role. I would also describe Carol as approachable in nature and she really encouraged me to continue my studies.

Carol has always presented as very committed to her coaching role displaying a professional yet approachable manner enabling me to achieve my professional goal. Carol has also shown empathy and understanding into how personal situations can impact upon achieving my goals, providing me with good strategies for managing such.

I feel Carol is able to motivate clients well within a coaching/mentoring role displaying good listening, questioning and clarifying to skills all of which have supported my peers and I on occasions to shift our perspectives, and thereby discover different solutions to achieve our goals.

'Carol was a very supportive mentor who helped me to reflect on my role as a newly qualified social worker is a very busy Safeguarding Team. Carol listened to me in a non judgemental way and offer advice and support that enabled me to learn from my experiences.'

'Carol demonstrated unconditional positive regard which made me feel relaxed around her'

'Carol had faith in me to pursue whatever path I chose and that I had the ability within myself to turn my life around which boosted my self esteem and confidence at a time when it was lacking- thank you'
