Be the Director of your life

Coaching improves performance, increases success and improves the quality of your life.

Simply put, coaching is all about helping and supporting an individual to achieve specific outcomes.

It is a process that empowers and enables people, drawing on strengths and creating the opportunity to self-reflect and find the answers within themselves to constructively move forward.

Change that sticks

Do you lack the confidence to fully step into a particular area of your life, way of being or skill?

Do you have a tendency to default to particular unhelpful patterns of behaviours or reactions that are getting in your own way?

Are you questioning where or how to make your next career move?

Where do you need support?

Perhaps you’ve even tried other methods or practitioners and you haven’t yet achieved the change or outcomes you want.

Ways we support you

We bring a wide range of methods, tools and resources to the coaching engagement in order to tailor an approach that works best for you.

The first step is to get clear on the goals and outcomes you desire. We then partner with you to support moving from where you are now to where you truly want to be.

Personal coaching can:

  • Increase your confidence and self-esteem
  • Release imposter syndrome, anxiety and unhelpful emotional reactions
  • Build resilience and inner resources/strengths
  • Motivate empowered action towards achieving your goals
  • Develop interpersonal skills, communication and influencing ability
  • Enhance employability
  • Generate new and previously unthought of opportunities
  • And more…

Some of the approaches in our kete

With the methods we use many clients report being surprised at how quickly change can occur and that the benefits are lasting.

Havening Techniques

Powerful psychosensory methods that use the sensory input of touch, imagination, and attention to facilitate learning and create change. Developed from the most modern neuroscience it helps your brain to rapidly rewire unhelpful reactions – thoughts, feelings, behaviours – and build positive states like resilience, confidence and self-esteem. You’ll also be equiped to use self-havening techniques as an ongoing support tool.

Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP)

NLP empowers, enables and teaches us to better understand the way our brain (neuro) processes the words we use (linguistic) and how that can impact on our past, present and future (programming). NLP combines theories, models and techniques from a range of scientific and esoteric fields, to create accessible, understandable ‘tools’ which can be used in a variety of contexts to improve performance, support wellbeing and create sustainable change.

Positive Neuroplasticity Training (PNT)

PNT provides a powerful framework for over-riding the brain’s negativity bias and stress response, learning to rewire your responses through practical techniques to build resilience, positivity and inner resources. Developed by Neuropsychologist and international author Dr Rick Hanson. When you apply these techniques you’ll feel generally happier and more optimistic, feel more equipped to handle life’s challenges/stressors and able to take motivated action.

Ignite’s Career Coaching Framework

You’ll be taken through a deep reflection and awareness raising process that ignites your understanding and new ways of thinking about your career. We can also help you prepare for and feel confident in your interviews, helping you be a standout candidate.

Clients report greater clarity, motivation and clear actions to move forward.

You’re in safe hands

We’ve done the deep and broad learning to bring a wide range of methods, tools and resources into the coaching engagement. This means we can tailor the coaching experience to your needs – no 10-step standardised coaching framework here!

We take a client centered approach, supporting you to feel empowered in your growth and goal achievement. Ignite’s approach is to increase your agency and ability to support yourself. We do this through equipping you with powerful tools and techniques that you can continue to utilise well past the coaching engagement.

Credibility and ethical standards are important to us. This means that we have a high focus on client safety, working with our own supervisors and coaches to ensure we bring our best selves to coaching sessions. We support you in working towards the outcomes that you desire (not what we think you should desire). We’ll also let you know if we don’t think we’re the right fit for you and your goals.

Frequently Asked Questions

What’s the difference between coaching and counselling?

Whilst there are similarities in some of the skills used, Coaching is future and change focussed, helping you move towards the objectives/outcomes that you want to achieve. We’ll ask thought provoking questions, use multi-level listening and build a high trust environment. We help you bridge the gap between where you are now and where you want to be through raising awareness, interrupting unhelpful patterns that prevent you from moving forwards and developing new strategies, techniques or behaviours towards goal achievement.

Counselling helps you to explore past and current challenges in order to overcome them. It can equip you with building inner and interpersonal resources.

What’s the difference between coaching and mentoring?

A Coach’s skill is in helping to develop and expand your thinking, holding you accountable to take motivated action, suppporting you to overcome barriers and building your resources with the aim of you achieving specific goals you’ve identified. A coach doesn’t need to be skilled/experienced in the specific goals that you want to achieve.

A mentor comes from the basis of having been in your shoes and already skilled in a specific role, career or skill that you’re wanting to develop in. Their approach is in guiding you based on their experience.

Both coaching and mentoring are powerful developmental approaches.

How many sessions will I need?

We can’t say exactly how many sessions you’ll need as each coaching engagement is tailored to supporting you to achieve your desired outcomes.

We usually recommend a minimum of 3 sessions to ensure changes are fully integrated long term – some engagements may be shorter and some longer. We work with you around your budget and desired outcomes and can give you a guide once we’re clear on your coaching goals and your current situation.

“Michelle has helped build my confidence. I had imposter syndrome, and I would get into meetings where I spent most of the time wondering if what I had said was good enough. Within two sessions that had changed… I feel very lucky to have had Michelle as a Coach. I would recommend her to anyone”
