Welcome to Personal Coaching Information, a comprehensive coaching guide to help you if you are thinking about engaging a coach, becoming a coach or are just interested personal development.
I'm Louise Yates, a professionally trained and accredited coach and coach supervisor. With over 750 hours of coaching experience, I want to share with you what I have learned.
Personal Coaching Information is born out of my passion for coaching and reflects my own coaching journey over the past 15 years. My aim is to help others to achieve their full potential and for the highest of standards to be maintained within the coaching profession.
Over the years this site has changed as I have gained more experience and have learned more about coaching and the profession. I have been lucky enough to have worked with a diverse range of clients from ex-offenders and young people struggling with mainstream education through to successful entrepreneurs, coaches and people just seeking a better life for themselves.
I’ve also worked with partnerships and teams in a variety of organisations including large corporates, family businesses, prisons, church organisations and charities.
One constant throughout my coaching career has been my belief that coaching has the power to change people’s lives. Great coaching provides the opportunity to reflect on who you are, what is important to you and the direction you want to take. It can help you to build confidence, develop stronger relationships and take meaningful action, leading to more success and fulfilment in all areas of your life.
As you read this some of these things will resonate with you and maybe coaching is something you are interested in. If it is, then you will probably want to know more, feel confident that you are investing wisely, know what you can expect and how you can make the most of it.
If you are new to coaching then personal coaching information will help you to understand what coaching is (and isn’t), and makes sense of the different types of coaching that are available to you. Drawing on my practical experience and professional training as a coach and coach supervisor I would also like to give you access to a range of tools and techniques which will help you get the most from your coaching experience.
Even if you don’t want to invest yet in formal coaching sessions then my tips and resource pages will help on you put your energy into self development activities that really do work.
You may also be thinking about becoming a coach and want to know more about the profession. In the coaches section you will find information about accreditation and how to develop a profitable business as a coach. If you are already a practising coach you will find information and analysis of different coaching approaches, models and best practice.
