Resilience and Recovery

Specialising in resilience and recovery, we offer one to one coaching for those who are at risk of or who have been through trauma and difficulty, or anyone who would like to improve their personal resilience. We also offer accountability sessions for special projects or studies and can work with other wellbeing and confidence-related issues.

What is involved?

One to one coaching work with Connected always starts with a 30-minute “chemistry session”. This is a no obligation call, Zoom or face to face meet where we get to know each other a little and explore whether coaching is the right thing for you. Should you decide to continue, there is usually a minimum of five sessions that are one hour long and 2-3 weeks apart. These sessions are a mixture of activities and exploration and tracking goals as they progress. There will also be tasks set to complete between sessions. We also ask all our clients to sign a coaching agreement, these outline the terms with which we will both be working and allows us to set expectations for each other.

We offer our one to one coaching sessions via Zoom or face to face depending on location. We are based in Standish, Wigan and have a cosy garden office for anyone local or we can meet in a café or anywhere you feel comfortable for those in the broader North-West. We have been delivering sessions online for over two years now and can promise the same high quality engagement.

Why choose us?

We believe in action. Our coaching is designed to help you take steps forward and find healthy, relevant, and manageable solutions to the things that have been holding you back. Based strongly in Positive Psychology, one to one coaching work with Connected also combines interests in neuroscience and experiential learning with Gemma’s very personal story of PTSD recovery and management. By undertaking a Doctorate in Coaching and Mentoring at Oxford Brookes University, Gemma not only has access to the latest tools and techniques in coaching but also to ongoing peer review and supervision to ensure her practice is to a high standard.

When is the best time to be coached?

Coaching lies in between counselling and mentoring and sometime the boundaries between the three are not easy to distinguish. Therefore, we have devised something called the Model of Perception, which explains it as 6 patio doors.
