Focus Coaching Is Your Personalized Fast Track To Success. It enables you to stay focused on the big picture, set achievable goals to stay on track, and celebrate your successes every step of the way.
- How are you getting on with fulfilling your dreams?
- Is your life on track and leading you unfalteringly towards the things you most want to achieve?
- Or are you feeling challenged and thwarted before you even take the first step?
For the majority of us, it is easy to wake up filled with inspiration and passion for the things we want to achieve. We may even jump out of bed saying today will be different, I will make that phone call, put that plan in action and make it my priority. Then before we know it, the day has overtaken us and we fall exhausted into bed, feeling disappointed that we are still in the same place we were yesterday and those plans we had feel more distant and elusive than ever.
It is very easy to set goals, but the truth is, nothing will change if you keep doing what you have always done. If you want things to happen you have to make room for an action plan.
The first hurdle with any goal is to make room for it in your busy schedule. The next is to keep it as a priority no matter what else is going on. Even with this in place, there are inevitably going to be tasks that you don’t enjoy, or times when you feel stuck and avoid what is necessary.
Keeping to your plan when you meet these challenges is the third and most difficult hurdle of all. I have worked with 100’s of people, and I see this every day. I even experience it myself. So I do know how hard it is to stay motivated when it is easier to put the task off for another less busy day.
The problem is, the ‘less busy’ day never comes and before long your goal has once again become elusive and distant.
Will Power Is Not Enough
Even with the best intentions, most people find that will power is not enough. There are good psychological explanations for this. If we are having to exert large amounts of will power, it is usually because we have met a block in our resolve. Or there may be a hidden overriding desire is to stay exactly where we are, in the familiar comfort zone.
Will power is a bit like an over worked muscle. At the start of the day when the mind is fresh, the will is strong and it is easy to say you will achieve your goal. However, a few unexpected tasks, conversations or meetings later the, immediate priorities of the day take over and the will becomes exhausted and overloaded.
To move forward we have to give Will a chance by applying focus. By shifting our focus to the bigger picture we begin to step beyond the familiar and make way for new habits to emerge.
Commitment & Accountability
One good way to achieve this, is to have an accountability partner. This can be a co-operative process with a friend or work colleague to set and maintain goals, but to work at it’s optimum there must be no collusion.
We all love to support people, and we want to show we care. However, being objective is a challenging skill to apply with people we know. This is where coaching comes into its own. With a professional coach, you can talk through issues, gain insights and receive the type of support that is not always possible with friends and colleagues.
Focus Coaching is a technique I discovered during my own coach training, and have since developed to support my clients in successfully setting and achieving their goals.
The Focus Coaching Technique
Focus Coaching supports you in fast tracking your way to success. The process encourages you to stay focused on the bigger picture and set consistent achievable goals to stay on track.
- You book your appointments at times that suits you.
- We meet in Zoom for private one-2-one sessions that are recorded.
- Sessions are time restricted, so it is important to be well prepared beforehand.
- In the first session we discuss your overall goal and strategy for achieving it. By the end of this session you will have your first achievable step clarified and have set a date for its completion.
- In each consecutive session we discuss the next step, the commitment required to achieve it and set a date for it to be completed by.
- Following each conversation, a recording of the session will be sent to you along with a booking link to set your next session once the task has been completed.
Free Exploration Chat
Not sure if I am right for you? I totally get it. You don’t know me yet and relationships are built on connection and trust. Finding the right coach is important and it’s an essential part of a successful coaching relationship.
So, lets have a chat and see if we connect. We will meet in Zoom and you can ask me whatever you need to know to feel sure that this is right for you. We’ll discuss the coaching relationship and I’ll leave you with a few pointers that will give you a sense of what it would be like working with me.
Absolutely no further commitment is required after this meeting. In fact, I would insist you go away and think about it carefully before booking any coaching sessions.

Everyone has a different perspective on value and it is reflected in everything we do. Financial value is often measured by our income and lifestyle. Where we spend our money is determined by what we value most. Likewise the people we choose to spend time with is determined by how much we value them in our lives.
Although our daily activities strongly reflect these values, we seldom give them conscious consideration. Even more overlooked is how we value ourselves. Sadly, we often use negative experiences to undervalue who we are and what we bring to the world. It is time to change all that.
Valuing Your Success
As a coach, I invest my time into your success. My financial reward for this is the money you pay me for my services. However, the thing I value most in working with clients is seeing you move from stuck, to fully motivated. The greatest reward of all is witnessing your success.
As anyone in business knows, good feedback and personal recommendation far outweighs any amount of marketing and advertising. Therefore, your success brings far greater value to my work and my life purpose than the financial remuneration. So although I am happy to work with you in the standard way, it would bring me greater joy to support you in celebrating your achievements.
To enable this, I have created four Focus Coaching Reward Packages. Not only do they support us both in maximizing your opportunity for success, they also honour your commitment and contribution to the world through the work that you do.
The Importance of Celebration
Festivals and celebrations are an important way of honouring a right of passage. This is often forgotten in the western world, however we still traditionally celebrate a birth, a coming of age, a marriage and sometimes a business success or promotion. Less recognised as a celebration, although equally important, is the sombre occasion of a funeral. As well as enabling the grieving process, honouring the death of someone we care about is a valuable way to celebrate their life, their achievements and what they contributed to others.
Celebrating achievements is how we determine their value. The greater the achievement the more likely we are to honour it with a celebration. By celebrating the small achievements we build momentum and add value to our long term goals. This is why I have incorporated achievement rewards into my Focus Coaching packages.
They require financial commitment and self discipline, however if you complete your achievements and attend your sessions within the agreed time, a financial reward will be made available to you after each achievement session.
The money you receive is not a refund, it is a reward for achieving your goals on time. It is our mutual commitment to your success and an opportunity for you to celebrate in any way you choose. Depending on the value you place on your achievements this could be anything from a quiet meal out with a loved one, a personal gift that you wouldn’t normally reward yourself with, or a contribution towards a grand celebration with friends and family.
Choosing Your Personal Focus Coaching Package
Imagine how you will feel when you achieve your goal. The relief, the joy, the well deserved pride. If this goal is important to you, then it is also important that you celebrate every step you take towards achieving it. That is why the Focus Coaching packages are set up with several benefit options.
No matter whether the goal is for personal gain or for someone else’s benefit, the rewards are issued with the sole intent that they are used to personally celebrate your achievements. The more generous you are with your rewards, the more you honour your personal value and the more likely you are to achieve the goals you set yourself.
Each plan includes an initial 45 minute preparation session and a set number of shorter achievement sessions. The last session is a review of your overall objective and an opportunity to discuss next steps or book further sessions if desired. Rewards are issued as individual payments into your preferred bank account after completion of each achievement.
This is your commitment to your success. Before booking, consider how many steps it may take to achieve your desired outcome and how many rewards you would like to receive along the way.
If you are fully committed to a long-term goal, then go ahead and book 12 sessions. However, if your goal is short term or you have any doubts about your own commitment, I recommend going for 6 sessions with the higher reward option as an additional incentive.
Once you have made your commitment there is no going back, but there is always an opportunity to book further sessions later if you wish to continue. (Before booking please read the Contract Agreement below.)

Contract Agreement And Refunds
The first session is about us getting to know each other, defining your goal and establishing the best way I can support you. By the end of this session you will have a clear action plan, established what your first step will be and have set a date for it to be completed by.
It is your responsibility to set each individual goal and the time you require to achieve it. Which means you can set a pace that fits your schedule. However, once the completion date is decided, it cannot be moved. If you have chosen a Rewards Package, rewards will be credited to a bank account of your choice provided the next meeting is attended within the agreed time frame.
It is important to be aware that this system works because of its strict accountability framework. Each session is dedicated to the next achievement step and exploring everything that could possibly get in the way of completing it. Receiving rewards is solely dependent on meeting the objective within the time you set at the preceding meeting. There are no exceptions to this.
The full fee is paid when booking your first session. After that no further payments are required. Following this session you have 14 days to consider the agreement and can pull out of the commitment if you wish (please notify me in writing to receive your refund.) After this period your commitment is sealed and no further refunds are available.
My desire is for you to achieve your goals with ease and I look forward to supporting you every step of the way.
