What is Courage to Thrive Coaching with NLP:
Are there areas of life where you would you like to unlock your own thriving? Courage to Thrive One-to-One Coaching is an opportunity for you to explore what that might look like. Space to drill down into a specific challenge you want to get to grips with or to take a broader ‘MOT’ of your life. It is an amazing investment in yourself which in itself is courageous.
My role as coach is to facilitate your development, enabling you to reach whatever goals you set for yourself. Each session is goal-oriented – you set the goal you want to work towards and I support you towards reaching that goal. Coaching is confidential, person-centred and non-directive. As a coach I do not give advice or take responsibility away from you, but through the use of powerful questions, simple exercises and deep attention I facilitate you finding your own solutions – it’s a beautiful process!
NLP (neuro-linguistic programming) is the practice of understanding how we organise our thinking, feeling, language and behaviour to produce the results we do. In coaching, NLP tools can be used to help unlock resourceful thinking and empower you to change your perception, communication and responses in a given situation.
How might Coaching help you & how does it work:
Coaching is a wonderfully versatile discipline with the client defining the outcome depending on their goal. I have experience of working with people on:
- Making career or life decisions in line with their values and aspirations
- Proactively approaching life transitions in a way which allows them to thrive
- Building self-confidence by overcoming limiting self-beliefs, fears and negative past experiences
- Improving personal relationships and communication skills
- Exploring responsibility and learning to say “no”
- Assessing work-life balance in order to live more joyfully and sustainably.
Each session lasts around an hour and can take place over Zoom, telephone, or face-to-face in central Poole. Depending whether you are wanting to work on a short-term specific challenge or are looking for on-going effective support, I offer either blocks of 3-6 sessions (spaced weekly, fortnightly or monthly), or longer term regular accountability coaching.
I trained through Simply Changing Ltd, and have a Level 5 Diploma in Performance Coaching with NLP. For more about me and how I work take a look at the About page. Get in touch if you’d like to explore whether coaching may be for you and to find out about my fee structure.
Whatever you decide to do, I invite you to reflect on how you are investing in yourself. You are worthy and have much untapped potential. What could a journey from surviving to thriving mean for you? Take a look as well at what we offer through Courage to Thrive Coaching Circles and our Step out of the Traffic Workshops – other ways of investing in yourself to make the changes you seek.

Coaching [with Emily] helped me to focus and formulate a plan for my thoughts and my future that I feel more confident about…
It has given me time to focus on me and has been invaluable in helping me to move forward in a positive way.
Emily has a natural ability to get to the root cause of things… she is very non-judgemental, relaxed and interested. I have made significant progress in communication issues and relationship concerns since my coaching.
Before the coaching sessions I was in a rut… I found it very hard to find a way to sort things through.
After my three sessions I am so much clearer I my head. I feel I’ve given myself a little MOT and can now use the tools I have to deal with things as they happen, to realise my limits and to listen to myself.
This experience has been extremely positive.
The sessions were invaluable… Small changes in thinking have already yielded far-reaching results… I felt understood and in safe hands… Emily was a great combination of gentleness and strength, insight and kindness. Brilliant!
