James Hodgkinson

What James says:

I coach by exploring what’s inside of you. Giving you space to reflect on how you are thinking, and feeling, allows you to come to greater insight and understanding about what might be holding you back. You can be challenged in your perspective and supported in going forwards. At the heart of my approach work is creating a container for trust and honesty in our working relationship.

The formal bit:

James has worked as a leadership consultant, facilitator and coach with a range of individuals and organisations for over 15 years. He has been accredited as a coach with the Association for Coaching, and is practitioner of psychometric instruments including the Myers Briggs Type Indicator, and the JCA Emotional Intelligence tool. James is also a member of the International Society for Psychological Coaching and is currently studying for an MSc in Gestalt Psychotherapy.

Happy clients

James's ability to be focused on what I was saying and hold the space required to allow the answers to generate themselves was testament to his skill and expertise as a coach. I felt he really understood and listened to what I wanted and helped me generate options that I could not have seen clearly seen or found on my own.

I have explored myself in depth, and managed to overcome challenges I have had. The sessions with James have significantly opened up my potential, a positive side of myself, and has made a big difference to my life.

I would underline that i was really impressed by the coach techniques and tools and impact the sessions had on me. They were very intense and emotionally charged and proved very helpful, with sustainable effects. I specifically selected James based on the advanced psychological skills.

This was a wonderful experience. I learned a lot about my strengthens and areas that I need to improve…it has been a base to strategically think how I should develop my skills and also improve systematically my areas of development.
