What exactly is development coaching and why should I choose 'Safety Net' to access it?
Life is a journey. What we do is help you to find your own personal road map to wherever your happiness lies. We won't drive you there though. What we do best is to put you firmly back in the driving seat and make sure you're back in control of your route, in life or in business. We make sure you have everything you need for your journey and we'll stay in the passenger seat right alongside you until you get where you want to be. It's the perfect trip! You become happier and you discover the skills to re-apply what you learn for the rest of your life.

It works because coaching is a series of extremely focused conversations during which you will examine exactly where you are, set goals to reflect the changes you want to make and learn how to access your true potential and personal resources to achieve those goals, targets and dreams. Your coach will be your mentor, challenger, supporter and no.1 fan whilst you work through your programme and will empower you to break down your barriers (both real and perceived) to success. Not only will it help you discover focus, strategy, direction and renewed motivation, you will channel it in the most productive way for your personal plans or those of your business. We won't ever tell you what to do. Instead we make you capable of taking the decisions and actions necessary to run your own life, just the way you want it instead of it running you. Imagine how good you'll feel when you've proved to yourself how well this works?

What makes a coaching session so different to talking to a friend or colleague?
The relationship you have with your Coach is entirely different as it is based on working with someone who is 100% on your side. Your coach has no agenda other than your success. At best, a friend, partner, colleague, boss or family relation may see your situation from their own point of view, perhaps offer advice, tell you what you should do based on their experiences and may distract you with their own perspective. At worst they may have reasons for not wanting you or your situation to change, or may have an agenda of their own. Your Coach will be unbiased, non-judgemental, non-critical and can truly open up your thinking by using skilled techniques to encourage your creative, focused and most enlightened thinking, plus you will have the luxury of time and space devoted solely to you, so you can organise your thoughts in the most useful way possible.

How many sessions will I need?
You hire your Coach for a minimum of 6 sessions, which will allow you time to become very comfortable with the process, start to enjoy it and really make headway into what you're looking for and what you deserve. Some packages may require a different number of sessions so it is important to decide on the package that will suit you best. We wouldn't advise you to book a programme with us until you fully satisfy yourself that we can provide you with exactly what you want and need. We can advise you on this once we know what you want to achieve. Just contact us.

How much does it cost?
Here at Safety Net, we are completely upfront about what it costs to make these improvements to your life. The amount you invest in yourself or your team depends on your own specific requirements. We have several different packages to suit your needs and circumstances so please contact us for details.

Prices currently start at £60 for personal coaching and £90 for business coaching per 1 hour session. The Singled Out! programme is an all inclusive £395. Click here to see the various programmes available. NLP and EFT are separately priced or can be included within coaching sessions. Please get in touch for a free chat. We don't think you should be charged for finding out whether or not it's right for you. As you look at this web page, you might already have started to feel how great it will be to have your particular challenge resolved. You know what that would be worth to you, don't you?

Isn't coaching just some new-fangled American thing, a trend that won't last?
Coaching is not new, nor is it showing any signs of being short lived. It has been used in the corporate sector for many years and word is spreading rapidly on how beneficial it is for anyone who wants to experience real change for the better, no matter what their circumstances. The current trend suggests strongly that it is here to stay and as you can see from our testimonials page the benefits are quick to take effect and are long lasting. Everyone can gain something from a personal coaching session - it's up to you whether you want to open yourself up to the opportunities that could await you.

What are the logistics? - Where and how? By telephone or face to face?
Most coaching takes place by telephone although face-to-face sessions can certainly be arranged if required and where appropriate. Telephone coaching is time efficient, focused, and convenient and allows you to choose the most comfortable environment for yourself in which to experience your sessions. We will always take the time to discuss individually with you, what would suit you best.

Is it a bit like counselling?
No. Coaching is action driven. You will leave each session feeling positive, motivated and prepared to take actions towards achieving the outcomes you desire. Each time, you will create a plan of what you are going to do, plus how and when it's going to happen, and you have the opportunity to check in with your coach in-between sessions if you wish. Coaching acknowledges the past but doesn't need to dwell on it. It is primarily about finding clarity in the present, taking responsibility for your choices and designing and creating the future you want.

Coaching, NLP, EFT? How do I know which one will be best for me?
 We will discuss this during your initial free enquiry. Frequently, NLP and EFT Techniques can be used within coaching sessions where it is appropriate for the client, however all of these can be booked separately or omitted if preferred.

What happens next?
Your decision to work with us will cause you to clear away the obstacles to success and start to achieve the results you want. Initially, we recommend that you undertake a trial session to assess whether coaching is for you. We're not going to tell you it is for everyone - only those who are prepared to commit to being honest with their coach, are prepared to make the time available to carry through the actions on which they have decided, and who genuinely want change for the better. Is that you? The cost of your trial session, will be refunded to you without question under our Money Back Guarantee should you genuinely tell us that you have derived no benefit from it at all. Having experienced the process for yourself, you will be in a perfect position to decide that the opportunity for personal development with Safety Net is right for you personally or for your business.
