Life Coaching

The very premise of ‘Elevate Psychology’ is that psychological theory, evidence and knowledge is not just beneficial to those who struggle with mental health issues.   In the case of coaching it can be used to further enhance the lives of those who are already functioning relatively well, but aspire for change.

Perhaps there are goals you wish to achieve but feel unsure where to start, how to get motivated, or have doubts.  It is possible you do not feel entirely content in your life, but struggle to know what it is that you truly want.  Research and experience tells us that simply having someone to hold you accountable leaves you significantly more likely to achieve your goals and improve your life.  As psychological experts we are best equipped to provide you with this support, to help you in recognising and achieving your fullest potential.

Coaching starts with an in-depth assessment.  This is typically for 2 sessions where relevant information is gathered in relation to different aspects of your life.  Goals are collaboratively created, and the appropriate style of coaching approach is also agreed.

Working with a Psychologist means that we can draw upon a number of evidence-based psychological coaching models.  These can be customised to meet the needs of each individual client.  This is a distinct benefit of working with ourselves, as many life coaches are typically only trained in one coaching model.

At present life coaching is a saturated field, with an unprotected title, which can leave members of the public vulnerable to unwarranted claims of expertise in coaching from some who lack both the experience and appropriate training.  You can be assured in the knowledge that with Dr Stone Elevate you are working with a fully qualified psychological specialist, who is educated to Doctoral standard.  Therefore our service offers peace of mind in working with a Psychologist who is HCPC registered, chartered by the British Psychological Society, a BPS member of the special group in Coaching Psychology, and named on the official BPS register for Coaching Psychologists.

Psychological models commonly used in life coaching can vary from– Solution Focussed, Humanistic model working with the self-actualising tendency, Positive Psychology, Acceptance and Commitment (ACT) model, Cognitive Behavioural (CBT) and motivational interviewing.
