For coaching to be truly effective there needs to be an open, trusting and honest relationship so that you can say whatever comes to mind and know that it goes no further.
That’s why we work within a strict code of practice. What you say to us stays with us.
Your coaching sessions may be designed to help you achieve in a wider business context and may even be funded by your employer, but the space and dialogue between coach and the person being coached remains sacrosanct.
Any feedback required by the employer is pre-agreed and is ideally given by the person being coached.
But confidentiality should not be confused with secrecy. Coaching is a powerful tool when delivered well and we encourage organisations to develop a coaching ready culture where the positive impact of coaching is acknowledged and accessing coaching encouraged.
