Reaching Potential - Coaching Sessions

Career and leadership coaching can help you develop and take the next steps, to identify your goals and work towards them. It can help you evaluate strengths and weaknesses and support effective decision making within your organisation.

Life/Career Development coaching can cost between £80 to £150 for a one hour session. We are therefore pleased to offer this programme of up to 4 coaching or mentoring sessions free of charge at this current time.  If you wish to continue seeing the coach beyond your 4 free sessions this will be a personal arrangement outside of KCSC.  The cost will be £50 per session paid directly to the coach.  If your organisation would like to pay for you to continue seeing a coach for large organisations the cost will be £75ph and for smaller organisations £50ph (see terms and conditions).

This is part of our Reaching Potential programme of support for the voluntary and community sector in Kensington and Chelsea.  A key aim in providing this service is to strengthen local voluntary and community organisations by supporting the development of staff and volunteers.

Thank you for expressing an interest in seeing a coach. Please complete the form below to register your details. As part of our evaluation of the coaching programme we will contact you after a period of time to see how the coaching is going. We would therefore welcome your co-operation in answering a few questions about your experience.

Please note: You will be subject to a £50 fee if you fail to turn up any of the sessions without a valid reason.
