Working with a coach was a step into the unknown – I wanted to know what it ‘feels’ like to work with a professional coach, I wanted to check out the benefits and understand what sort of difference could be made due to working together rather than going solo.
The professionalism, respect and safe space which Adelaide provided offered a solid foundation from where we started our 7 sessions between May and June 2020. There’s no doubt I was a little nervous and apprehensive about opening up – Adelaide never judged or saw this as an issue – her warmth, years of experience and love of working with people shone through – Adelaide the made me more relaxed and enabled me to open up, to say things out loud which I had only ever internalised.
Our early sessions truly empowered me. Adelaide really listened to me and helped me to listen to myself. With the careful introduction of ‘homework’ to aid my reflection between sessions, Adelaide helped me look deeply at what is important to me and what was holding me back. PUR sessions always resulted in an action plan and always ended with me really motivated with clear steps to take, knowing how and when I was going to progress.
It was great to work together, I am SO grateful to have had these sessions with Adelaide – her sense of humour, her support, her professionalism, her skilled listening and questioning were all central to the growth in clarity and confidence which I achieved.
I recommend working with Adelaide and would be happy to have a chat with anyone who is considering doing so if they would like to ask any questions.
