Our coaches are trained in resilience and somatic embodiment work. This deeply transformational coaching restores dignity, connection to your true self, enabling you to walk tall in the world and go beyond your deepest fears and fulfil your goals and aspirations. We partner with you to support you in facing the challenges ahead, build courage and confidence, restore dignity and be a half shade braver than you imagined possible.  

1. Discover

We start by understanding your past successes, current reality (including concerns and challenges) and future ambitions. We will help you to identify your personal values and where you are or are not,  living true to these , your unique strengths and what you wish to build on.  We will take the opportunity to reflect and complete the Flourish Check In, to see where you are on the scale from flourishing to languishing and discuss what changes need to be made.

2. Grow

We will support you to identify and dissolve outdated patterns of behaviour that no longer serve you in the achieving your ambitions. Create the new qualities you wish to develop that ensure you have the courage, confidence and resilience to achieve a deep sense of wellbeing and personal fulfilment whilst achieving your leadership aspirations.  Living and leading the life you love is of the utmost importance.

3. Mastery

Embodying and embedding new ways of being, thinking and acting requires practice.  In the final stage of our work together we will focus on creating a plan for the future.  This will entail a plan for integrating the learnings such that they are integral part of your resources for navigating your personal and professional life. This may entail your future development plan to be managed over the coming months. 

Coaching – a day in Nature.  One on one with Karen Downes

This one day immersion is designed for anyone going through a major life transition.  We will look at life through the lens of the seasons of the soul and explore where you are and what has brought you to this place.  Be it a health issue that is impacting your life and leadership, a set-back that you’ve not fully recovered from or a decision you are facing and unsure of the way forward. This day out is time for you, time out of your business and the busyness of your life, to reflect, renew and recover.

I highly recommend Karen as an executive coach. She understands the challenges a leader faces and how to work with the individual to achieve the business objectives. Karen is very professional, practical and motivating in her approach and will go the extra miles to help her clients.
