I am struggling with adjusting to the social changes and the anxiety of the coronavirus. This is making it hard to stay focused and centred when I am coaching.

First of all you are not alone in case you were feeling it. What you are reporting many many professionals in helping professions are feeling too. Read More

Should I reassure my clients about what is going on? Or is that fixing them? I don’t really know myself.

It is a fine line between encouraging fantasy thinking and using positivity as a way to manage energy and emotion. Read More

How do you get hired as a coach?

31 January 2020    Anthony Eldridge-Rogers

I met a professional in the addiction treatment field a few years ago whose profile on LinkedIn plunged me into feelings of inadequacy. Let me say I am not blaming him! I did the inadequacy bit all on my own. Now, what triggered me off into a nasty bout of self immolation was the number of letters after his name!  Read More

Be your own Coach this Christmas and be in great shape for 2020

12 December 2019    Anthony Eldridge-Rogers

I am sure you have noticed what a really really crazy year it has been. You don’t need me to list the issues. Now, as we approach Christmas, the question is how are we going to find some respite and renew ourselves for 2020. Renew ourselves we must. I don’t like the word ‘must’ as it sounds kind of directive but I am deliberately using it these days in certain contexts.  Read More

Choosing change as a strategy to thrive

25 November 2019    Anthony Eldridge-Rogers

In almost every coaching assignment I have entered into, the person who is looking for, or about to receive coaching, turns up with a life challenge that they frame as a problem. It is rare to meet a person who is not listing their life experiences as a series of problems that are standing in the way of something they want or think they want. Read More

I am the first to argue against too much oversimplification. On the other hand, we make many many things way too complex. Fortunately we have naturally evolved ‘rules of thumb’ or intuition (what are fancily called heuristics) to guide us.  Read More

I am feeling unbelievably anxious about the future for my family. It is making it hard for me to concentrate and focus on my coaching.

08 August 2019    Anthony Eldridge-Rogers

These changing times are testing all of us. It is testing who we are at deep levels and asking us to consider life scenarios that frankly range from midly worrying to appalling. So it is no surprise that you are anxious about the future for your family. Read More

I have clients who seem to believe that the climate crisis is some kind of hoax and that we need not worry about it. I disagree and don’t think I can carry on coaching them.

08 August 2019    Anthony Eldridge-Rogers

I have sympathy for that point of view. Humans are unbelievably skilled in the art of self deception and psychological self protection. How much easier is it to believe that it is a hoax than to take on board other scenarios. Read More

Coaching and the Climate Crisis - time to take off the blinkers

08 August 2019    Anthony Eldridge-Rogers

We are in a defining period of modern history. Never before have we seen such change and it is only speeding up. This speeding up has both positive and negative potential depending on what you are looking at. The one overarching issue that we are now beginning to see first hand the effects of a changing climate.  Read More
