"I was an absolute pleasure to work with Frances. It was very easy going but I enjoyed the process and discovery. I remember talking about presenting oneself in auditions and there was a truly AHA moment for me. Through our conversations, something clicked that felt just right."
"It felt good to have somebody so positive and encouraging to talk to. I am more aware of the possibilities, and I'm more eager to react to them. Frances is a very kind and positive person who will surely give you the push you need to reach out towards your goals!"
"Frances gives you the impression of being just a supportive friend helping you sort out things. Don’t fall for it! She is an incredibly skilled professional with extensive knowledge of the musical world and its issues."
How do I coach?
Trust is at the heart of my coaching relationships with my clients. Together we will design a safe and courageous space and identify your vision and goals. In each session, we will dig deep into what is holding you back, the doubts and the negative stories you tell yourself. We will connect to the creativity, strength and resources within that will allow you to grow and confidently step onto the next stage or into the next stage of life. Between meetings, I will give you enquiries or homework to support the learning and keep up the momentum. Sessions take place every two to three weeks via Zoom or in-person.
The Steps of Coaching
The Chemistry Session
Coaching is for the brave, so choosing the right coach is vital to your journey. The chemistry session is an excellent opportunity for you to experience my coaching style and see if you feel comfortable and supported in the space that we create. The session lasts around 40 to 60 minutes. I will coach you on a specific topic that you bring, or we will have a more general talk about your needs.
The Discovery Session
The discovery is a more extended session, lasting around 90 minutes. We will explore your goals and dreams in-depth and set the overarching topic for the coaching process. What do you want to achieve through coaching, and perhaps more importantly, how do you want to feel at the end? We will also start exploring your values. What is essential in your life? What do you live by and want to be more in alignment with? These concepts will become a compass for all our future sessions.
The Coaching Process
During each session, we focus on a specific topic that you bring. Whether it is something going on in your life right now or something, you have been struggling with for a while. The coaching hour is a safe and courageous space for you to dig deep, explore, experiment, create action plans and go beyond your comfort zone. By asking powerful and sometimes uncomfortable questions, I will challenge you to make the changes you need to achieve your goals. By connecting you back to your vision, goals, inner resources and values, I will support you to become the pearl in the oyster.
