How do I do contact Star Monde about coaching services?

Send us your details at  or use the form on the contacts page and we will send you further information and arrange a time to chat by phone or on Skype.


During the initial conversation, you have the opportunity to ask questions and work out whether you are comfortable with the coach. What you want from coaching and the process involved will be discussed.


What coaching arrangements are available?


Clients needs vary, and at Star Monde, we work with you to meet these needs. Coaching may be undertaken over the phone, or through Skype or face to face. Some clients work on having a package of twelve, one hour sessions over three or six months; others may require a six session package or they may want two sessions to work through a particular issue. You decide what coaching package suits you during the initial session.


How are coaching sessions structured?


Initially, you will be sent a questionnaire to help you to prepare for the coaching experience. This is filled out and returned to your coach.


During the first session, we work on setting the goal(s) you want to achieve from coaching. This session allows us to build rapport and look at the important areas of your life or workplace.  This session usually takes about an hour and a half, other sessions are usually an hour.


In the following sessions, we build on your strengths to achieve the goal(s). We may explore your thinking, your behaviour and /or your feelings and how you could make changes to optimise your situation. Each session is about YOU, and while we may check in each session to see what you have accomplished and set actions for you to undertake, it is about your growth and development.


What support do I receive between sessions?


Between sessions, should you have any questions or issues you wish to discuss, you may email or phone for assistance. Interesting articles, links to websites relevant to you will be provided throughout the coaching series.


What are the payments?


Payments are discussed in the initial conversation. They are usually made three sessions at a time and the overall payment will depend on the package arranged i.e. six or twelve sessions. One-off sessions to resolve a dilemna or to discuss something through may be arranged if required.


Payments for workplace coaching including group coaching are subject to negotiation.
