Frequently Asked Questions
Change the Future!
You cannot change the past. So, do not look back, unless it helps you to move forward. Use your experiences to help you to make better choices and decisions for your future plans.
“Would you tell me, please, which way I ought to go from here?” “That depends a good deal on where you want to get to,” said the Cat. “I don’t much care where,” said Alice. “Then it doesn’t matter which way you go,” said the Cat.

What is Life/Career/Business Coaching?
Life, Career and Business Coaching are an interactive partnership between you and your coach. Coach and client work together to identify your true goals. Together we design an alliance that meets your needs and develops your potential, both in your personal life and in your career and business life.
‘Having being made redundant, I had six weeks to prepare to set up self-employed as a new company. I have almost 30 expertise as a glazier, but I had limited experience of how to best start up a company. Clara Clark helped me put the proper structures in place, which is so important for any new business start-up. She gave me plenty of advice, encouragement and support.
During our mentoring sessions (via DLR Local Enterprise Office), Clara was really good at helping me figure out how to deal with the challenges I faced and was very reassuring at all times.
I would highly recommend Clara and would like to thank her for helping me to get Southside Glass & Glazing up and running.’

Who needs a life coach or career coach?
Anyone who wants to make changes to any aspect of their life, or who wants more to their life, and would like some help to achieve that. Coaching works for personal, career, and business changes.
How does Career Coaching work?
Career Coaching works by you, the client, taking action and learning from that, which leads to more action and so on. Career Coaching is ideal for this process of making changes and moving forward, because the relationship is ongoing and is structured and focused between the coach and the client. All of the coaching skills are used to forward the action and to deepen the client’s learning. Career coaching motivates you in a positive and very focused way to make meaningful changes in your life.
How do I begin?
Our first meeting will be an opportunity for us to get to know each other and to decide if we can work together in a successful partnership. We will then set up a series of coaching sessions, which can be done either face-to-face or by telephone. Working together, as your coach I will encourage you to set goals, explore what it is your really want, and help you to move forward and to make changes in your life.You will feel supported, believed, and more confident in changing your direction and your thinking.
