What is Coaching?
I like to think of coaching as working in a close relationship with a person to create their own awareness, self-discovery and creativity, all as a means of moving forward on their particular journey. We all have the answers deep within ourselves, but sometimes they are so hidden it’s impossible to find them. We are all creative, resourceful and whole. Coaching is like a partnership of equals, where the coach holds a non-judgemental approach, using a set of skills to allow them to become the best version of themselves. I like to consider it like a walk together, the person decides where they want to go, I as a coach shine the light to find the way. It is a truly rewarding and fulfilling process, witnessing the person’s journey, feeling the safe space and getting to the point of discovering the awareness within. To me as a coach it is hugely important to bring value to the person, to touch a life.
MY TOP THREE VALUES AS A COACH ARE
"When you need something to believe in start with yourself".
Is there proof that coaching works?
Yes! The 2017 Global Consumer Awareness Study, commissioned by the International Coach Federation and conducted by PwC Research, shows that most clients report:
- improved communication skills,
- increased self-esteem and self-confidence,
- increased productivity,
- optimized individual and team performance,
- improved work/life balance,
- increased feelings of well-being,
- better business management,
- expanded professional opportunities.
Literally anyone can benefit from partnering with a coach, but people who benefit the most from coaching are typically looking to grow and develop in some aspect of their lives, whether it be life direction, career, executive and leadership skills, health and wellness, or personal and professional relationships.
How does it work?
Coaching usually requires 6 hours (1 hour per session).
Connie Merrick Coaching also offer bespoke packages tailored to suit your needs.

HEAR WHAT OUR CLIENTS HAVE TO SAY
Connie was able to guide me to identify which strengths I should use when needed, more or less and those to use sparingly. Throughout the process Connie enabled me to screen my objectives & how they would be achieved against the strengths in my profile. This technique delivered the tangible information I required via my strength profile to move forward with confidence and the right tools."
"I often doubt myself in both my personal and work life but having completed my Strengths Profile with Connie I felt more courageous to believe in myself and push on. I had 2 very important business meetings recently where my coaching session with Connie was of enormous benefit. In the first one I was able to draw on a newfound sense of inner confidence which enabled me to enhance my performance beyond my normal limits. The positive outcome from the first gave me an enhanced self-belief for the subsequent 2nd meeting where again I was able to perform over and above what I would have expected of myself before working with Connie. I also now feel that I have a solid framework for the year ahead to build and grow my business."
I was at a crossroads in my life/career when I met Connie. She patiently helped me address my fears, focusing on my passions, my strengths and the future I envisioned. Our conversations enabled me to create a plan for that future, and Connie has followed up as I worked through each step. Looking back from the other side, I am so happy I connected with Connie, and will be forever grateful for her guidance and support."
If you were like me ‘running to a standstill on the hamster wheel of life’, too busy to smell the roses, always procrastinating and thinking I’ll never find the time, you know deep down that’s not true as we always find the time for the things that we enjoy doing…………… I am still a busy little bee with one big difference I have clarity about what I need in my future and I am progressing nicely. I am very happy that I reached out to Connie and invested in ME!!! I am worth it.
Thank you for working through my Strengths Profile and providing me with some really useful insights. I enjoyed the process and found the One-to-One coaching session to be an extremely engaging, positive and impactful ninety minutes. The process itself was quite simple and similar to other profiling systems I’ve done in the past. The difference here however was the focus on energy; be it focussing on the things that we enjoy doing and that energise us, or, on the other hand, those things that don’t come as naturally and require us to expend more of our energy to complete. The coaching session was very well led by you, asking excellently subtle questions and revealing different insights to further the understanding of the feedback. You never dominated the conversation, instead allowing plenty of space for me to explore my profile, seek clarification and come to my own conclusions. You’ve given me plenty to think about and some positive actions to take.

Over the past decade, the field of Neuroscience has confirmed we have complex, adaptive and functional neural networks - or “brains”- in our heart and gut. In conjunction with our head brain, these multiple brains exhibit intelligences and wisdom. This theory has already been mooted by many ancient philosophers. How our multiple brains communicate and operate with each other is vital for generating wiser decision-making as we align our compassionate, creative and courageous intelligences. Tapping into these multiple “brains” is called mBraining and it is a powerful process of aligning and integrating your multiple brains for specific outcomes.
mBIT (multiple Brian Integration Techniques) is a suite of practical techniques for communicating with, aligning and harnessing the intelligence of your multiple intelligences.
As a Certified mBIT Coach I can work with you to integrate your head-based knowledge with heart- felt knowledge and deep intuitions, getting to a place of calm alertness where we can discover clarity and wisdom in all aspects of life.“The intuitive mind is a sacred gift and the rational mind is a faithful servant. We have created a society that honours the servant and has forgotten the gift” – Albert Einstein
