1-1 and Group Coaching

My Next Chapter – 1-1 and Group Coaching provides support for people who are in transition.

Working with people on a 1-1 and Group basis is a hugely important area of My Next Chapter change work. Whether focussing on your own life or each person in a group, this coaching space helps to identify what it is you want and need and how you want to make that a reality.

A huge amount of learning and insight comes from this reflective process; it allows what is working, what isn’t working and what’s important to emerge. This allows planning for what’s next based on those priorities.

Ultimately the client determines how we work; this is your change process. No two people or group of people are the same so we work closely with our clients to help you identify needs and work with what is present to help achieve the desired goals.

Above all, we listen to you intently. It’s about getting really clear about what you want to focus on and what it is you are seeking to achieve. We walk alongside you, asking probing questions and keeping you focussed.

We align our coaching practice to preferred learning styles and use different methodologies to unlock what’s in the mind as a means to access fresh thinking and new solutions. Using a broad range of methods and theory rooted in alignment; we work with metaphors and mantras, floor mapping, image making, and other creative processes.

Coaching is delivered face to face in our coaching space in Thornton, West Yorkshire, by phone or online via Zoom; something which has become the new normal due to Covid 19. Group coaching is

also delivered via Zoom using all it’s functions such as breakout rooms, chat boxes and slide sharing. Face to face coaching will return when it is safe to do so.

My Next Chapter 1-1 and Group Coaching is grounded in high-quality training, solid professional practice, regular supervision and a consistently excellent reputation. We have been coaching clients on a 1-1 and group basis for over 12 years and get phenomenal feedback from our work together in creating change.

Case Study – My Next Chapter for over 50’s

“Bradford Oddfellows were pleased to be able to facilitate the My Next Chapter course at our lodge. It was a pleasure working with Bev who proved to be an inspirational and innovative facilitator. We have had excellent feedback from attendees who have used the course to make positive changes in their lives”.

“I was fortunate to attend the My next chapter course in Bradford Autumn 2019. I am in my early 60s and was feeling unfocused and lacking enthusiasm. I was carrying a lot of negativity from my past that was preventing me from moving on. Working through the course helped me to challenge myself and re inspired me to look at what I still want to achieve with my life. ”

Hidden VoicesBev stepped in at very short notice to run our (group) coaching based courses for vulnerable adults… Having worked with Bev as a Coach previously, with experience and knowledge of her innovative and inclusive approach, I went to Bev immediately knowing that she would understand the work we are trying to do and the diverse needs of our clients.

We are a small charity based in Bradford, delivering coaching based group learning to individuals who would otherwise not have access to this type of service…It was important to us that we were able to get someone in to work with us who really understands what we are doing, would have deep empathy and be able to flex and weave along with our clients. It was also an opportunity for us to work with a highly skilled, knowledgeable coach with a creative approach.

Clients have been simultaneously challenged and supported to make sense of often complex lives and to begin to restore a sense of self and forward purpose.’

Timothy Burke (@SpiltMilkMan) tweeted on Thu, May 17, 2018: Having a bit of a personal review, looking back on 5 years as a freelancer and remembering how it all began with @bevmon and #TheArtofPossibility – it took us just 10.25 hours and 7.3 million spider diagrams to launch me on my journey and change everything.



The day was an excellent investment of time. It gave me a change to stop and consider as well as the opportunity to put into words what until then were just nebulous thoughts in my head. Bev was able through the day’s event enable a group to be formed from individuals who didn’t know each other. At the end of the day I wish it could have gone on longer.

‘Bev is simply a joy to work with. I have completely turned my life around and taken my musical career to a whole new level. I have never met someone who can so easily tune into your thoughts, feelings and desires as Bev, and thanks to our coaching sessions, I’m now living the dream…I believe I’m ‘richer’ than I’ve ever been.’
