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.
1-1 Coaching is delivered face to face in our coaching space in Thornton, West Yorkshire, in addition to Skype and phone coaching. Group coaching is delivered in person at a venue which is convenient to you with the option of working from our coaching room in Thornton if required.
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 a decade and get phenomenal feedback from our work together in helping create the change needed.
‘Bev’s reputation as a coach precedes her. I first worked with her to shape up some team coaching when the programme I managed came to an end, resulting in mine and my team’s redundancies. I found Bev to be positive and approachable helping us navigate options in a safe space. Subsequently, I embarked on 1-1 coaching over a period of several months. This was particularly useful when I was at a professional and personal crossroad.
Bev provided me with a key sounding board, empowering me to explore ideas to find greater balance in my life. Six years on, I have a new career, am a mum and am exploring new creative outlets. I’m confident Bev helped me overcome some hurdles at a key time and I’d recommend her without hesitation.’
Bev 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.’
‘…I feel that it has truly changed my whole outlook on life…My career is on a completely different level from before, and I feel it is snowballing, as opportunity attracts opportunity.’
