Deborah Henry-Pollard: Creative Coaching


Coaching is a wonderful partnership. Working with my clients, they have: written their debut novel; set 5 year creative practice goals (and achieved 80% of them within 2 years); created meaningful post-retirement careers; developed their hobby into a key income strand; turned small creative ideas into large scale projects; redesigned their creative businesses; changed careers.

Coaching is about working with you to facilitate change. It is non-directive and used to help draw out your ideas and actions relevant to your situation. It is a non-judgemental and objective process that lets you take control, identify and work effectively towards your goals. You may find new ways of working which support your practice or break through blocks caused by lack of confidence, negative perception or unhelpful attitudes. With the help of a coach, you can often reach goals, find your purpose and clarity with far less effort and time than you ever would have done alone.

Coaching sessions are held by phone or Skype. 1 hour sessions can be face to face for London based clients.

What do you do next?

If you are serious about making changes in your life, book a free exploratory conversation to find out if coaching is for you and how we might work together. Coaching requires an investment of time and money, so it is important that we both feel it is a good fit for you at this time. (Anything we discuss in the call will be absolutely confidential and without obligation.) If we decide to go ahead, we book our first session. At each subsequent session, we review where you are, how you want to move forward and agree your goals and actions to work on between sessions.
