Coaching and Facilitation

Coaching, and group facilitation is available using the Landscaping Your Life (LYL) process. 

The goal of any LYL session is to inspire change, and often involves breaking out of a few comfort zones. Mainly because without change everything will stay the same as it is now, and we're assuming that if you're considering contacting us to arrange a session you want something to change. Whether that change is because you, or your team, or business:
  • Are constantly battling an uphill struggle
  • Are stuck in a rut
  • Feel bogged down
  • Can't see the wood for the trees
  • Find yourselves up a creek without a paddle
  • Are going around in Circles
  • Feel like a fish out of water
  • Are out on a limb
  • Are between a rock and hard place
  • Need to turn a corner
  • Have missed the tide 
  • Are in at the deep end
  • Feel like you've burnt all your bridges
  • Are feeling under the weather
  • Can only see a dead end
In other words you're in need of, or have recently, taken your head out of the sand, and realise that if you could only make the mountain into a molehill you'd be able to: 
  • Get back on track
  • Go with the flow
  • Turn the corner
  • See the wood, and
  • Be headed in the right direction
The very fact that you can identify with one of these sayings is why using landscapes and nature is an effective tool for getting back on track. If you knew what to do you'd have done it by now (however hard that may sound). Currently therefore it seems the solution is eluding you. Using metaphors bypasses the blocks to finding a solution, and enables you to really see the wood for the trees, and realise what needs to be done to get  back on track.

Harder to describe in writing than it is to do in reality - either by going for a walk or using videos or images of nature.... or even your imagination (said in a whisper)

Sessions can last 10 mins to a day or two. It depends on the situation requiring resolution. 

Coaching and facilitated sessions are also likely to incorporate other unconventional tools and you can find more about those over on our Purchasing Coach site.

The easiest way to get a sense of what the process is all about, and to find out how it can help you let go of what's holding you back, and achieve our goals is to call Alison on +44 (0)7770 538159 or email her on 

Or you may just want to read some of the LYL posts, and you'll find a useful index of a number of the blogs here.
