Individual Coaching

Coaching for anyone committed to developing themselves either personally or professionally.  Based in East Sussex

What is Executive Coaching?

Coaching is widely recognised as a transformational learning and development tool that will bring about change in attitude, belief and behaviour.

People engage with coaching from a position of strength as they recognise the importance of adapting to changing circumstances. 

Who is our Individual Coaching for?

Are you feeling ‘lost’, ‘stuck’ or ‘overwhelmed’?

These are often motivators by our clients to engage with Bourne to Achieve coaching to gain clarity.

Having a sounding board and accountability are among other motivational factors. 

We can arrange sessions at convenient times for you, in person or via Zoom.

  • Preparing and supporting individuals in leadership roles

Bourne to Achieve Coaching Packages

Bourne to Achieve offers flexible Coaching Programmes with three main components:

Foundation session

Each series of coaching starts with a 90 minute Foundation Session to hear the coachee’s desired outcomes, interests, learning styles and differences, previous experience of coaching or other interventions. It also covers contracting – an agreement of how we will  work together and from this we co-create a path forward.

Main body of sessions

The juicy work of coaching takes place over several sessions at a pace that suits your circumstances and the matters we are exploring. The frequency can range from weekly sessions to every 6-8 weeks.

Post Coaching Review 

After the final session, you will have time to put your development plan into action.  We will then come back together to review progress and tweak your plan as needed.  Our experience is that this Post Coaching Review is crucial in ensuring the sustainability of the learning. 

This post-coaching review takes place at around three months after the final session.


From here additional ad-hoc sessions or another series of coaching can be re-contracted for.

Is coaching right for me or my team?

There are many professional development options available, and coaching is not a panacea for all situations. While your team may be facing generic problems affecting your particular field, how they manifest will be unique to your organisation. Coaching offers a bespoke, individualised programme to support you and /or your team with the specific challenges and arrive at solutions that will empower your team. 

What can I expect from a coaching session?

Each session is shaped according to what you’d like to work on, how you prefer to work and the level of challenge that would be useful. Your coach will draw upon a kitbag of flexible tools and models that best serve your outcomes. 

What if coaching isn’t right for me at the moment?

A coaching relationship is based on an open, trust-based relationship. If you feel that something isn’t suiting you, please talk to your coach first. Most things can be resolved by having an honest conversation.  

What package is best for me?

We offer a range of packages designed to suit a range of requirements.

I am a small business owner, how can Executive Coaching help me?

Whether you have a team of 1 (you) or a small team, as a business owner you are also a leader.

Executive coachingby Bourne to Achieve is working with leaders to bring about change in their practices which then bring about change in the business.

Your focus might be foundations such as time-management, priorisation, and delegation so that you can grow the business or lead the business through change.  

How is coaching different from counselling?

Whilst we may review past actions, in coaching we see if they behaviour patterns that may be holding you back from fulfilling your potential. 

How does coaching differ from the ‘Cosy Club’ - a natter over a cuppa?

Coaching is a robust development tool that offers accountability to ensure that goals you set are appropriate to you, achievable and timely. 

At Bourne to Achieve, we will develop a plan and a process to support you to implement this.

How can you personalise sessions so they are not an ‘off the shelf’ package?

The foundation session, which is usually 30 minutes longer, explores who you are, how you like to learn to create a flexible coaching ‘programme’ based on what you want to achieve.

At Bourne to Achieve, our coaching is highly individualised with outcomes specific to you. 


1 of 3 - As an infant school we started working with Jannine in September 2020. We had a new Middle Leadership Team with three staff new to Leadership and with each member of the team in very bespoke roles with different professional and life experiences. As Headteacher, observing their personal and professional development was fascinating and the impact for all three was positive and significant for the school, especially given the ups and downs of the pandemic. Although very different, the individual coaching enabled them to work together with more consistency with increased shared high expectations for them leading their specific areas. With one professional we saw a positive change in prioritisation and delegation of duties with their role. This has led to them being able to be much more strategic in use of time and being able to sustain a better work life balance while achieving far more professionally. All three professionals agreed it had been the most personally insightful and most useful training that they have benefited from as professionals.

2 of 3 - The second phase involved 1:1 coaching with the Senior Leadership who each had substantial professional experience. The common goal was how to continue to raise the school's high standards and work with each other most effectively. The other key element of these individual coaching sessions was to focus on quality of life and wellbeing for all as this needed to be key for all stakeholders amidst the ongoing crisis. Session focuses were almost always planned in advance in terms of themes to explore. Jannine often set tasks to be completed as part of these which meant that sessions were meaningful and moved professional practice and personal goal setting forward. For each of us having a series of 1:1 sessions within the same time frame has meant that overall school development has been able to be prioritised strategically, alongside each of the Senior Leadership's personal development. In between sessions Jannine would also research and recommend useful strategies that would further move development areas forward. These insights meant that change and developments were deep and sustained.

3 of 3 - This year we have had a number of sessions with Jannine with the six leaders together. As Jannine already had a deep understanding of the school’s needs and of us all as individuals the coaching was able to target shared areas of development. This has included - time management and prioritisation - the effect of change on stakeholders and how to plan proactively for this within the school setting - how to facilitate difficult conversations and hold people to account professionally - Developing resilience in school setting The great advantage of Jannine already knowing as professional individuals has meant that the sessions have been tailored to our needs perfectly and been able to really home in on what will continue to move the school forward. As a school we have really enjoyed working with Jannine. She is perceptive and insightful and can deal with unforeseen challenges proactively and with professionalism, calmness and kindness. On an individual and a team level we have all gained from the sessions immensely. We are all more efficient, more effective, more confident than we were but as a team our shared vision and understanding of the schools’ needs has never been more unified.
