From Feeling a Fake to Confident Coach
I’m looking for 2 Special Coaches or Want To Be Coaches!
Do you secretly fear that someone will discover that you are a fake and a fraud?
If you were really honest, is this getting in your way of your coaching and/or taking action to become the best coach that you can be?
Are any of the following behaviours/situations familiar?
Feeling like you’re not ready to see “real” clients yet
Taking many training courses, but not using your knowledge/skills with actual clients
Scared that you are not good enough to be a coach
You don’t follow up with any potential clients
You can’t see yourself taking the next step with your coaching
Having a conversation about what you charge for your coaching is uncomfortable – if you’ve even started having that conversation!
You have asked yourself why anyone would want to pay you for coaching – and you didn’t know the answer, or at least one that you believed!
You find that when you are coaching that you can be distracted by negative thoughts questioning and critiquing your own abilities and what your client must be thinking of you.
I think that it is such a shame that many coaches/want to be coaches are hiding their talents or playing small when they could be making a difference in the world. I understand completely what that’s like – I’ve been there myself and have heard many others share similar stories.
So if you think that you are alone with this – you’re not. Which may help to reassure you that you are not some freak but it doesn’t help you solve the situation.
I’ve designed the “From feeling a fake to confident coach” program as a solution to this situation. It’s here as support for you if you would love to be a confident coach, ready to step up and do things you don’t currently feel ready to do.
You’ll see that in this program you’ll create both the inner mindset shifts AND develop and strengthen your own coaching skills and knowledge. You’ll also see that the program is designed so that you will take bold action on what you learn so you actually relax into being the confident coach you are meant to be.
Keep in mind that this kind of coaching relationship is not for everyone. As you read on pay attention to your gut feelings, check in with your intuition and listen to your heart.
You’ll know this program is for you if you are tired of that nagging fear that any minute someone could discover you to be a fraud … that you are passionate about coaching … feel that you could do more if you had extra support … and you are ready to commit to becoming the coach you want to be.
Of course not everyone who has ever been on a coach training has to become a coach. They certainly don’t have to be running their own coaching practice. Others are content to serve just a few clients. And all of that is perfectly fine.
But for those who want to serve more, who feel that coaching is their calling and purpose … it’s just not enough.
If you want to play a bigger game, make a bigger impact and find yourself confidently coaching then I invite you to apply for this program.
To be accepted into this program:
First – please read the entire of this information so that you are clear HOW this powerful program will benefit you!
Then – simply set up a Going further with your coaching chat – this does not commit you to the program but it will give you the opportunity for us both to establish if this is a fit for you and any next action steps for you.
This is a program that has the most personal contact with me so I am only looking to take on 2 new individuals into this program. If at the end of the Going further with your coaching chat we both feel that being one of those 2 individuals is the best solution for you we will also discuss the payment options you can choose from.

Here’s What You’ll Receive As A Participant in “From Feeling a Fake to Confident Coach” …
This welcome pack means that we can really hit the ground running and get a head start on creating the success that you really want.
The contents of this specially designed welcome pack will start identifying what is getting in the way of you already feeling like you are a confident coach and areas that you wish to develop.
Our 1st session
This call of up to 2 hours builds upon your answers from your welcome pack. It is an ideal time for us to determine:
- Where you currently are with your coaching journey
- How your coaching fits into the rest of your life
- Identifying any coaching skills you wish to develop
- What is affecting your confidence as a coach
- What is your dream future? After all, coaching is part of your whole life, not just an independent bubble.
Weekly Phone Coaching session
Up to 1 hour in length.
You get to pick what we actually use these sessions for but you may choose to:
Get support in an area that seems scary – reduce, or even get rid of the fear so that taking the next action is actually surprisingly easy.
This will be different for each coach/want-to-be-coach, some of the topics that you may want to have:
- Who do you actually want to coach?
- Having a conversation with someone to invite them to actually have a coaching session
- Charging for coaching
- Seeing “real clients”
- The things you are imagining could go wrong
Generate new ideas and potential solutions
Again, this will be unique to your own situation. Some areas that may be applicable for you:
- Finding the way(s) that work for you if you are transitioning from being employed to having your own coaching practice
- Ways to make where you are currently enjoyable as you work to build your coaching practice
- Making something that you think is vital to you being a coach/ having your own coaching practice which currently seems hard work easier
Decide upon the next steps and action that can be taken
Sometimes the piece that has been missing is actually making that choice to take action and identifying what seems manageable. Our weekly coaching sessions are ideal for assisting you to get clarity and focus.
- Having someone who you choose to be accountable to can be a huge benefit if there are aspects you are finding difficult to find the motivation to get started with or do consistently.
- If you are transitioning from being employed to self employed and used to having a boss (even if they gave you loads of flexibility) this accountability in place can make that change much easier.
While it’s not compulsory, many find that these sessions create the space to have meaningful conversations that wouldn’t otherwise take place. The sort of conversations that result in things being much easier than you had previously imagined!
This is not a program that is just about what happens in our scheduled time together. “From feeling a fake to confident coach” is about getting you confidently coaching and everything you associate with that.
This is also not just another system where you will be getting lots of theory and knowledge that you then don’t use. This is about providing you with support to actually put things into practice and out there making a difference for your clients.
Throughout our time together, usually after each session, we will jointly decide upon an action assignment that you are willing to commit to achieving. This will be something that is all about moving you closer to being the coach that you want to be and living the life of your dreams.
1 face-to-face session per month
Up to 3 hours in either Central London or Cheshire, UK
We can use this time as is best suited for you. Just some of the things we can use these sessions for:
There is nothing wrong with increasing and practicing core and advanced coaching skills. Sometimes the solution to your lack of confidence in your coaching skills is to improve those skills!
Want an impartial and experienced set of eyes/ears to give you feedback on your coaching? We can use this for precisely that – get that immediate feedback while everything is still fresh in your memory.
We can use this time to give time and space to create and develop ideas for each content that you want to offer your clients. All done in a manner that reflects your own coaching style and approach – even if you don’t know what that is yet!
Perhaps this could be creating the content of your own welcome pack or designing the content of a workshop.
You may be a coach (or want to be a coach) but you are also human! There is nothing that says that a coach has to be “perfect” (apart from a few limiting belief thoughts.) There is also nothing that says coaches can’t have work they want to do in their own lives and generally shouldn’t get support to feel better!
It’s not compulsory for you relax into being more comfortable in your own skin, being happier etc but many find it much more enjoyable!
You’ll Also Receive The Following Bonuses …
The option to participate in Action Days
Sometimes you may feel that extra support and encouragement will just make getting started and keeping momentum easier. You will automatically have the option to book onto an action day as part of this program.
Action days are a fun way to provide accountability and support to physically get more “stuff” done!
Unlimited email support
This experience is about much more than just the time we spend together on the phone or in person. My aim is to get results that work with your coaching and life so you are welcome to contact me in-between our scheduled times to ask questions, share any news and successes.
This is a program that is about working at the pace and speed that is right for you. I ask that you make a minimum of a 3-month commitment of our work together.
When You Choose the pay quarterly (rather than monthly) Option, You’ll Automatically Qualify For This Additional Valuable BONUS:
A monthly Coaching related book/CD
I will personally select a coaching related book or CD especially for you. This is yet another way we can continue to build upon your existing skills and knowledge with a range of different coaching approaches, methods and opinions.
Each month of the quarter you can identify if the approaches and style naturally resonates with you and your own natural coaching. They will also give you additional “tools” and techniques to use with your own clients.
I want to make it easy for the right coach (or want to be coach) to say yes and commit to getting they support that you need/want. As a reward for committing and paying quarterly instead of monthly you will get a 10% discount from what the price would have been if you’d paid monthly.
(It also has the added bonus to me that it creates less admin etc so we both win!)
I know that it can feel a big decision to step forward and invest in yourself and your coaching. I want to do everything I can to support you in making the right decision for you.
That’s why I also offer you my personal happiness guarantee – If after the first month you are not happy with “From Feeling a Fake to Confident Coach” just let me know and I will happily refund your money out of my own pocket – no hassles, no problems.
Why am I offering a personal happiness guarantee?
Firstly, you have PLENTY of time to make an informed decision, yet still take action now. One of the things that can get in the way of coaches building successful practices is not taking decisive action.
I’m on a mission to support, nurture and encourage coaching skills and talents from non-coach to coach and beyond. If you truly feel that I haven’t delivered on the promise I’ve made to you in this letter, then I don’t want your money. Like you, I started my business to be of service to people I care about. It really is that simple.
You can figure it all out on your own… spend many hours and money on developing these skills on your own… but I’m willing to bet that you’d rather spend that time doing what you love.
If you have read this far then I suspect that you are interested in the price.
If you decide to pay monthly the price is £780.50
For those who choose the quarterly payment option you get a 10% discount (saving £234.50), as the payment is £2107
If from what you have read so far appeals to you then I suggest we talk further and have a Going Further With Your Coaching Discovery Session chat. In this call we’ll be laser-focused on 1 thing, and 1 thing only: You becoming the coach you want to be.
You get my expertise, loving strong coaching, AND specific action steps to move you forward quickly. Together, we’ll …
- Create a crystal-clear vision of exactly what being a coach means for you and how it fits with your business and lifestyle goals.
- Identify exactly what’s been holding you back from taking that next step with your coaching
- Create an action plan so that you know the next step you have to take with your coaching.
I’ll lay out specific action steps for you, and finally, I will make at least one coach’s request to you to get you going. And the best part?
Your 60-minute Going Further With Your Coaching chat is absolutely FREE.
Let me reassure you this is not a hard sales conversation, I like being of service to coaches so if either of us thinks that this is not a great match for you I will happily share other solutions relevant to the conversation we have had during the Going Further With Your Coaching chat.
If at the end of your Going Further With Your Coaching Chat we both think that the From Feeling A Fake To Confident Coach is a great solution for you then we can discuss the payment options you can choose from.
If the only thing that is standing between you and the decision to take your coaching further is money contact me anyway and I’ll help you find a solution to meet your needs.
