What is coaching?

At its simplest level, coaching is a conversation between two people (coach and coachee), to help the coachee understand and take charge of possible actions.

  • Future focused
  • Working on next steps
  • Overcoming obstacles
  • Understanding ourselves better


Make time for coaching

When was the last time that you had a conversation that was 100% focussed on you?

When was the last time someone just listened to you fully, didn’t have their own agenda to follow, or advice to give?

When was the last time that you finished a conversation with a clear plan, a set of actions, a renewed determination?

People who have been coaching will answer the above questions with “during my last coaching session!

Success stories and testimonials

Charlie recently supported me in obtaining my Level 7 Certificate in Executive Coaching and Mentoring through Love Your Coaching. Charlie is a fantastic coach and trainer and was an incredible support over the last few months. I really valued his input and feedback on my own coaching and more so his coaching of me! His passion for coaching is clear and it’s easy to engage with him thanks to his supportive, guiding and committed approach. I really enjoyed the time working towards my qualification and will be forever grateful to Charlie for all of his support.
Claire Grant, HR Business Partner, Eurostar
This was a fantastic coaching programme, it is well structured, and you are supported every step of the way to achieve your qualification. Charlie and his team were very engaging from the outset of my contact with them, supporting me to build my knowledge and practice in coaching – it was a real joy to participate in this programme!! This process worked so well in the online space, it really did feel like we were in the room. My overarching objective for this programme was to increase my confidence in my coaching abilities, and learn a few new approaches along the way – these expectations were exceeded, and I loved the process of getting there. Charlie and Sue were wonder, calm, clear, accommodating and engaging.
Dr Amanda Clark, The Wellbeing Collective
I chose to develop my coaching skills because I had been coached and saw the benefits. It was a tough course, but l learnt a lot and am now coaching well, and regularly. Colleagues comment on how different conversations with me are, and I have coached a number of people who are developing their leadership careers. The tools I’ve learned allow the conversations to flow smoothly, and pretty well always there is a good outcome for the coachee. Coaching is definitely my tool of choice to use these days
Lyndon Evans, Head Teacher, Wheatfield School
I completed the ILM Level 5 Certificate in Coaching and Mentoring with Charlie in 2019 and I can’t rate the programme highly enough. Charlie’s expert knowledge, skill and energy for coaching is exemplary. He is a fantastic trainer and I enjoyed every minute of the programme. Without doubt the programme transformed my coaching skills and cemented my desire to work as a coach. I started the programme with a basic knowledge of coaching. By the end of the programme I would rate my knowledge/confidence as high with the belief that I can progress to become an advanced level coach. I received such value from the programme – it’s difficult to think of anything that could have improved it for me. My personal objectives were achieved 100%. My objectives were to develop underpinning knowledge and techniques of coaching. To continue to develop my skills in L&D and become an active member of my organisation’s coaching supervision group and South West coaching pool. Emma Ford

What Charlie ‘did’ either delivered or exceeded what he committed to. The ongoing offer of supervision/sense checking is also invaluable. Do they do Coaching SuperHero capes anywhere? I was impressed by Charlie’s open door policy/ support/ fast turn-around of feedback and transparency on scoring assignments. We had exposure to new ideas; facilitating small discussion groups/role plays/access to what we’d learned each day We were given encouragement to give new things a go and follow through with how it went My confidence is up to an 8 from below 5 at the beginning of the Diploma course. I regularly review what I’ve learned which ensures I’m consistently reviewing techniques which the ILM7 introduced. I’m more relaxed as well as confident when delivering Change Coaching. I make the time to reflect as I’m increasingly finding this underpins not only confident delivery but effective delivery.
