Last week we experienced a special Lab, and for the first time run by guest host Eric Larson (PCC with more than 10,000 coaching hours on his back and special friend of the Lab). Georgie held a powerful space for her client and this somewhat unconventional coaching conversation went into a level of depth nobody…

Psychedelic-Assisted Coaching with Rosie Peacock (Lab report #22)

I’ve been looking forward to seeing some integration work in action. Part of me wished we would have caught the first session after the client’s psychedelic experience, but I really loved seeing Rosie work with literature prompts and refer back to the experience via the trip report. I also really valued the insight into how…

Coaching with the Earth in Mind with Linda Aspey (Lab Report #21)

Linda created a thinking environment and only spoke 3 times during this session. I personally found it very inspiring to see Nancy Kline’s approach delivered with such professionalism, though there were also voices that questioned whether this session could have been more effective if the coach had been more active. Fascinating! Curious to know more?…

Formula for setting fees, Yannick Jacob, Coach, Supervisor, Trainer

The formula for setting coaching fees?

Over the years one of the most frequently asked question we’ve been asked is how much to charge for coaching. The answer isn’t quite that simple. However, along the way I’ve discovered a number of factors that (should) play into how much I charge for my services. Many of these factors I hadn’t taken into account during the first 5 years of working as a coach and when I finally did I found it quite easy to increase my prices.

Talking about Coaching, episode 2, How to get more clients, Yannick Jacob

How do I get more clients?

This is the ‘big one’, perhaps the most frequently asked question. Coaches need clients and clients need coaches. But building that bridge can be tricky, especially if clients don’t know about you or what coaching can do for them.

In this episode of Talking about Coaching, Yannick, Siawash, and Nicki share a few strategies for getting the next client.

Making eye contact with coaching clients on Zoom

For years I’ve been using Zoom, and since last March (2020 – the pandemic year) I’ve been seeing all of my clients online, most via video chat. Anybody who works with relationships will probably agree that being able to look someone directly in the eye is such an important element when we meet someone or sit…

Yannick Jacob, Coaching & Psychedelics

Coaching & Psychedelics?

I’m tempted to write a long bit as to how coaching & psychedelics can benefit each other (and indeed, beyond what I’m already offering, I am in the process of authoring an academics white paper on the topic), but at this point I just wanted to share what might be a historic step in the…

How I put my prices up – fair & equitable (I hope)

Raising prices has always been a weak point of mine. My mum instilled a strong sense of fairness in me and in combination with living on relatively little money throughout my 20s and knowing what it’s like to want to attend exciting events but unable to afford it, I developed a bit of resistance. Now I…

Trauma-informed Coaching for narcissistic abuse, Caroline Strawson, Yannick's Coaching Lab

Trauma-informed Coaching?

In January we welcome Caroline Strawson to the Lab. I’ve met Caroline when she did her Masters in Positive Psychology and Coaching Psychology and since she’s graduated her coaching went from strength to strength. I’m particularly interested in her approach to working with trauma combining elements of coaching and therapy to help people overcome adversity and narcissistic abuse. Fascinating stuff and I can’t wait to see her in action.

Life Coach, Liz Goodchild, Yannick's Coaching Lab

Life Coaching for people who give a shit with Liz Goodchild

In December we welcome the wonderful Liz Goodchild to the Lab. I’ve loved Liz’s authentic, warm, reflective and person-centred style from the moment I met her. I also love that she swears a fair bit! 🙂 Her writing has inspired me and she’s also really smashed the business side of coaching. I can’t wait to get an insight into Liz’s coaching style in action and really look forward to the session.
