Life Coaching & Mentoring

What it is, what it isn't and how it could help you

What is life coaching?

Put very simply, coaching involves helping you move from an unresourceful state to a resourceful one in order for you to achieve your goals. Coaching can facilitate positive changes in your life and is based on the idea that you already have all the resources within you to achieve the goals you set.

Coaching could help you to unlock your potential to maximize your skills and resources, empowering you to make the changes that are important to you. You could discover the strength and energy within yourself to make good decisions, increase your performance, improve your relationships and transform your life!

What life coaching isn't...

Coaching is not counselling or therapy. These interventions presuppose that there is something going on about a person or situation that needs to be “fixed.” Coaching is completely different in that it presupposes that a person has all the resources and skills within themselves to achieve whatever it is they want to achieve. There is nothing to be “fixed.”

Coaching is not teaching or training. A person can have all the training and academic knowledge in the world and still not be able to put into place the steps to achieve their goal. Coaching facilitates an individual to identify for themselves what they need in terms of actions, knowledge and motivation to achieve their goal. A coach cannot teach them the skills they may need as these will be different for each person.  It is often not a lack of skill or knowledge that holds a person back (although that can be the missing part sometimes). It is something more fundamental about that person’s life experience so far which has led them to have self-limiting beliefs, lack of confidence or simply a feeling of overwhelm that doesn’t allow them to see a clear way forward.

What kind of coach is right for me?

Often coaches will be quite general in the types of coaching they offer and some will specialize in certain areas. For example, a career and business development coach may have expertise in health and wellbeing and so on. There are however some basic skills that are common to all coaching activity and will be at the top of every coach’s tool box.

These are to: 

  • Facilitate the exploration of needs, motivations, desires, skills and thought processes to assist you in making real, lasting change
  • Use questioning techniques to facilitate your own thought processes in order to identify solutions and actions rather than take a directive approach
  • Support you in setting appropriate goals and methods of assessing progress in relation to these goals
  • Observe, listen and ask questions to fully understand your situation
  • Creatively apply tools and techniques to develop your own understanding of your situation
  • Encourage a commitment to action and the development of lasting personal growth & change

What happens in a coaching session?

There really is no set format as coaching is ALL about you and will be led by you throughout. However, your coach initially will want you to talk about yourself and what your goals and aspirations are, and also what your thoughts are on anything getting in the way of you achieving them.

Based on this your coach will be forming a plan for future coaching sessions, but it is important to know that this will be very fluid and flexible because coaching sessions often bring out thoughts and feelings that you may not have seen clearly before.

How many sessions will I need?

Usually 3 sessions are about the right number to get you onto a pathway that makes you feel in control and focused on next steps. At this point some people are happy to make progress by themselves. Some people like to continue for a bit longer if it has been a major transition and some people like to keep coaching going on a flexible basis.

For example you may want to have coaching every month to stay on track or have the option to ring for coaching as and when things pop up.

What does working with a coach cost?

Depending on the type of coaching you should expect to pay between £50 and £120 per session. Coaches often offer discounts for blocks of 3 or more sessions so ask your coach about this. The most important thing for you is that you find the coach that you enjoy working with.

You will find that you make most progress when you work with someone you can connect with, someone who is in rapport with you, and someone who makes you feel at ease and comfortable with them.

Most coach’s will offer a short complimentary telephone session initially so that you can see how it feels talking to them and get an idea of their style of coaching. Be curious, ask questions and trust your intuition.

Pamper PartyWhat a great idea! A bit of ‘me time’, in the most wonderfully relaxing surroundings. The Wellness Centre has such a relaxed, homely feel to it - much nicer than my actual home, as it is clean, tidy and welcoming! The atmosphere immediately put me at ease, I absolutely loved having time to chill out, chat and eat cake. Fi is the perfect hostess, making sure that we all had everything we needed, with her wonderful warm and caring manner. It was great to be able to choose what particular treatment or massage I wanted on the day. I surprised myself by trying something new and going for the hot stones massage, and I’m so glad I did. It was amazing, so deep and yet so gentle. It was really nice to experience my massage while listening to everyone else chatting happily, too. I completely recommend this if you are looking for the perfect excuse to have some guilt free time to yourself.read more

I couldn't recommend Natalia enough! I have been treated by her and her essences for over a year now and we have gone through different levels of healing processes that I needed to go through. The powerful drops prepared for you at the end of the session gives you the extra help that you need to face your challenges... Thank you ever so much Nah! For the healing reiki sessions, the essences treatments and all the generosity and knowledge you bring and mix from your long time experience as a therapist; which makes your sessions unique and rich in love, faith and hope!!! �read more

I loved the atmosphere of this place! Since the first contact, they were very welcoming and supportive. The location is perfect, surrounded by beautiful stores and a coffee shop, but still very quiet, like an island of peace in the middle of the city. The rooms were cosy, well isolated and perfectly fitted for any therapy. I loved the flexibility and openness to use the premises as well as all the support they offer to develop my personal practice. I'm looking forward to starting working with this beautiful team!read more

i used the Wellness Centre main room for a photoshoot ... The light was perfect, the environment clean and pleasing and the people lovely. It is a such a lovely environment in which to work and the calming and easy feel of the place unmistakable. While A photoshoot is not the primary role of the Wellness Centre I can highly recommend it should you want to use it as such ... And other wise ... It is just a lovely calming environment to use and the guys who run it lovely!!!!read more

I find these rooms very enjoyable to work from. The centre is slightly tucked away yet easy to find, which makes it an ideal place to hold a practice with a little privacy. The booking process is straightforward thanks to the online booking system and I find the set-up in general is designed to make the therapy experience a smooth, pleasant one for practitioners and clients. I'd highly recommend the centre as a great place to build your practice!read more

Me and my little boy came to the baby massage (tinies) and we loved it so much we signed up to the baby yoga (wrigglers). Would recommend these classes to any new mum.

Although based in Chesterfield I have been looking to expand my hypnotherapy practice into the Sheffield area but was having difficulty in locating a suitable therapy room for hire. I then decided to do a search for "therapy room for hire" and "hypnotherapy in Sheffield" and one of the options which came up was the Sheffield Wellness Centre on Abbeydale Road. When looking at the website, the premises looked exactly what I was looking for so I made an appointment to view. The Sheffield Wellness Centre exceeded my expectations. It is in a convenient location and has all the facilities I have been looking for, including an online booking service. The therapy rooms are tastefully decorated and furnished and it will be a pleasure to work with my clients there.read more

What a great little find, with great people inside it who want to make you feel better.The building itself is cute and quirky, and provides an ideal opportunity to have a light lunch or a sociable cuppa afterwards in the courtyard cafe downstairs. I’m looking forward to being there in the next few weeks, sat in the sun having some home-made cake and a latte. The therapy rooms are both quiet and calm. Being brand new they’re also immaculately clean and will be perfect for any counsellors or therapists wishing to rent them by the hour.All in all, quite a unique set up. Try it.read more

I have had the most wonderful hypnotherapy session with Fi from the Sheffield Wellness Centre. I knew from previous chats with her that she had the perfect voice and open demeanor for hypnotherapy, and I wasn't wrong.She immediately put me at ease and I was able to open up honestly with her. The session itself was lovely, I went quickly into a trance state and, although it's early days, feel very much that the session was beneficial: I already feel lighter and more in control of the anxiety and other problems I suffer with. The Sheffield Wellness Centre is also the perfect therapeutic space. The therapy rooms are lovely and perfectly suited to a range of therapies and the studio is bright and welcoming. I'm so excited to continue my therapy with Fi and am 100% sure this will give me so much benefit, I can't recommend her and the SWC enough.read more

I was looking for a pregnancy massage near me and I found Laura at The Wellness Centre on Abbeydale Road. I was in quite a lot of pain with my pelvis and back and really in need of a relaxing massage. The massage itself was done on the floor on the most comfortable beanbag which I found very easy to relax into. The whole session was just amazing, I left feeling relaxed, uplifted and totally at ease. Thank you Laura!read more
