Jessica first discovered coaching fifteen years ago, from the perspective of the client. The impact it had on her sparked off a fascination with performance and how coaching can influence and enhance it. She trained as a coach in 2014.
Coaching is a conversation in which the client has time to think, is paid attention to, is supported and challenged by the coach, and which results in some sort of forward momentum. Sessions can provoke both immediate and gradual changes, with shifts in focus and perspective sometimes becoming realised long after the conversation has ended. Coaching can be done in person or by Skype. Sessions are 60 to 90 minutes long and are completely confidential.
Jessica offers support for performers of all disciplines in the following areas:
planning for performance
help with performance anxiety
providing a space to think for emerging ideas about performance/career pathsM
removing feelings of "being stuck”
low confidence and self-esteem
fear and doubt
lack of enjoyment at work
being “controlled” by feelings
“Ready Steady Perform! - how to be comfortable with being uncomfortable”
Jessica has devised a 3 hour coaching based workshop which looks at longer term performance planning - how to plan for your best performance - and short term fixes - practical tools which can be used in the final hours and minutes before performance.
