One to One Coaching

Investing in YOUR personal and professional development..



What does a coach do?


A coach works to your agenda. Coaches use focused conversation and, where appropriate, psychometrics.The Centre for Advanced Learning and Conferences has a variety of coaches and your coach will be selected and the techniques tailored to your personal requirements following an informal, confidential conversation between you and the coaching service. The work will be intensive, independent and always confidential.


If I am interested in coaching, or wish to support a colleague in achieving this, what should I do?

Phone the Centre for Advanced Learning and Conferences on 020 7977 6657 or contact us at We will take your details and arrange a confidential telephone conversation between you and one of our coaches. Once this conversation has taken place it will be possible to identify the ‘best fit’ for an agreed number of sessions (or even a one-off) within the framework outlined above. This initial conversation can have a number of outcomes– a series of coaching sessions, pointers towards alternative development options or a decision that the time is
not right to proceed with coaching.


About the Course

How long will the sessions last?

A confidential coaching session normally lasts for between one and one and a half hours (60–90 minutes).


Do I need more than one session?

It is possible to have a one-off session, but it is more usual to arrange a series of six sessions at intervals of one or two months. This will depend on your individual need.


How much does it cost and who should pay?

A single face-to-face, one and a half hour coaching session costs £400 plus VAT. This cost is normally borne by your employer. We can offer a discount for those who wish to book a series of sessions. If you are unable to receive employer support for any reason, we are able to negotiate packages of coaching to meet your budget.
