Online 1-to-1 mindfulness coaching
“The most powerful thing from sessions with Sheila has got to be my positive mindset changes”
Coming soon – ‘Steps To Growth‘ – free self-study option, for mindfulness beginners and those with some experience.
‘Steps To Freedom’ – a 1-to-1 coaching programme, suitable for mindfulness beginners, and those with some experience.
The sessions take place using Skype or Zoom. You can click the links above to read the session descriptions for each programme, or find out more about coaching below.
The programmes are based on ideas, practices and tools that I’ve shared with hundreds of people over the years (both in groups and individually), to help them live more mindfully. An integral part of that journey is learning to support yourself through difficult times, and opening to the positive in life: my programmes offer practical ways to discover how to do this.
To get a sense of the benefits, you can visit the Mindful Living page, and see the client quotes throughout the website.
“I have discovered techniques that have really worked for me… to find a greater sense of calm and inner belief and self confidence”
Here are some FAQs about how the programmes work:
What happens in a session?
Coaching is a guided conversation that supports you in finding the next step in your own growth process. In each session, I share the key content for the theme we are exploring, and I create space for us to reflect together on how the material applies to your own life. It’s a space where you can come up with your own ideas to experiment with at home, or receive suggestions from me if helpful. At the end of each session, we create your personalised next steps to take away, including a home practice plan. We don’t do meditation in the session, but we can discuss your experiences if you practice meditation at home.
Why is 1-to-1 coaching helpful?
Coaching provides personalised support that is responsive to your individual needs. It can be hard to find this kind of space in everyday life, to discover your next steps towards growth, without your own instinct being drowned out by other influences. As a coach I can not only provide you with tools for positive change, but also facilitate as you investigate your own particular way of being in the world – and find new possibilities, especially if you’re feeling fed up of hitting the same old stumbling blocks. It’s also a private environment, where you can reflect on your own experience in confidence.
Cost and duration
I am currently operating on a donations basis, given the financial challenges so many people are facing. The usual rate is £20 for each 45-minute session (this is the 2020 rate, this may increase in future). I will send payment info when you contact me to enquire or book. The rate applies to all sessions, including Starter Sessions. You don’t have to book for all the sessions in a programme at once – see more about this below.
We can use Skype or Zoom for our sessions. You can choose if we use video, or just audio so it’s like a phone call. I offer evening and weekend slots, so you can fit it around other commitments. If you are outside the UK, please let me know as we may need to work out time differences etc.
How do I book?
Both coaching programmes begin with a Starter Session, to help you get the most out of the process. To book a Starter Session, or ask any questions, please email me via the contact page. Before contacting me, please ensure you have read the Important Info at the bottom of this page to check suitability.
Do I have to commit to lots of sessions?
You only need to book your Starter Session to begin with – at the end of that session, we can discuss whether you want to continue with one of the coaching programmes.
You can ‘pay-as-you-go’ for all sessions, and choose how often you want to schedule them. Usually, one to two weeks between sessions works well, but you could choose to spread them out further.
How can I get a taste of your approach?
If you want to get more of a sense of me and the approach I share, you can explore the resources on this site: blogs, tips and meditations. You may also like the info and videos on the Mindful Living page, or my YouTube videos.
These sessions are helpful for stress, but are not intended to support those currently experiencing a debilitating mental health condition, or severe emotional distress. They are also for adults only (18yrs+). You can read a bit more about suitability at the About page. If you are unsure if my sessions are suitable for you, I’m happy to have a short phone chat – to arrange one, please get in touch via the contact page.
