How I work

The International Coaching Federation defines Coaching as “partnering with clients in a thought-provoking and creative process that inspires them to maximise their personal and professional potential”, and this is the relationship I seek to create with my clients.

My coaching style is underpinned by the belief that people usually have access to all the internal resources they need to succeed. The aim of the coaching partnership is to promote an environment of rapport, trust, support and positive challenge.Whether supporting clients to identify career pathways, tackle leadership issues or build greater personal resilience, I see my coaching role as an enabler and encourager on the client’s journey of self discovery. The coaching meeting is a way-stop on this journey, a temporary haven at which to rest, reflect and take stock and acquire new resources to take forward.

Experience

I have worked with a broad range of public and private sector clients to enable them to grow their leadership skills and mindsets. For the last ten years, I have provided executive and career development and coaching at HM Treasury and The Cabinet Office, as the primary coach and facilitator of the Prospects Career Development Programme.
In addition to coaching individual clients, I am committed to supporting organisations to embed a coaching and mentoring culture in the workplace. I facilitate a well-received Coaching Skills for Managers Blended Learning Programme for county councils and public service organisations.
Client Feedback: “Helen Geoghegan, the Coach on this project, is very flexible and unfailingly positive… In addition to her excellent organisation of the programme, her coaching sessions add enormous value to the Prospect participants’ experience of the programme and the learning gained.”
‘Helen is a very impartial person who appears to have a very soft approach, but behind this gentleness there is a keen mind with an ability to put things, which are difficult to hear, in a way that makes them acceptable.
When I present her with a problem, she listens a lot, peacefully asks probing questions to understand the whole picture better and supports me to come up with original solutions that continue to surprise me.’

“Her knowledge of people’s psychology is extensive, as is her wealth of practical experience, and as a consequence she has an awareness that people need their motivations to be understood or at least acknowledged before they can let go of their defences.” Andrew Bluett-Duncan, Managing Director, Art of Living Ltd
