Coaching in Motion

Experience the positive impact coaching outdoors in nature can have on your ability to step back, reflect and plan.
A change of pace. A change of scenery. An outdoor coaching session can help you see things differently.

Step out, tune in

Walking outdoors brings a change of pace—a more natural rhythm that can help you slow down and tune in to your authentic thoughts and feelings. Away from the confines of your regular, familiar workspace, you’ll find your senses heightened and open to the nuances in our thought patterns that we often miss in the rush of day to day life.

Unlock your brain

As we walk, our brain shifts its focus to the movement of our muscles and body. This shift causes our brains to produce slow alpha waves. In this relaxed state, your unconscious mind works to process and organise your thoughts, and stimulates creative thinking.

You may also find that walking side-by-side with your coach makes it easier to talk openly and honestly about your thoughts and feelings.

The structure and number of coaching sessions you need will depend on a variety of factors, which we can discuss as part of your free consultation. However the following structure works well for the majority of people I coach.

“When the physical environment affirms our importance, we think more clearly and boldly.

When our bodies are cared for and respected, our thinking improves.

Nancy Kline, Time to Think

1. Deep Dive

An initial 2 hour session in which we’ll explore and identify your goals in detail and plot a path for the following sessions.

2. Keeping Momentum

After our initial Deep Dive, a series of four, 1.5 hour sessions will help keep you on track as you work towards your goals. In these sessions I will hold you accountable for the objectives you set, challenge you to reach your full potential and offer an objective perspective to help you reflect on and review your progress.

3. Looking Forward

In a final 1.5 hour session we’ll review your progress and achievements and ensure you have a plan to help you move forward independent of your coaching.

You’ll have a clear understanding of how your own personal strengths and support networks can help you maintain the progress you’ve made, make changes in the future and live life the way you want to.

An intensive one off session (half-day) focused on problem solving, action planning and quick results.

This is for you if:

  • You know what you want to achieve or change but not how to do it
  • You are facing a complex problem and want to find a practical solution

Where will the coaching in motion sessions take place?

I hold outdoor coaching sessions in the parks and green spaces around Milton Keynes, such as Willen Lake. Check out the Parks Trust website to find possible locations for your sessions.

Do I need to be an experienced walker?

Outdoor coaching sessions involve a gentle, slow stroll on flat, easy terrain. You might like to swap office shoes for more comfortable footwear but there is no specific level of fitness required.

Common sense precautions such as applying sun cream in warmer weather and wearing layers in the cooler months are also recommended.
