The Work we do

We coach in areas we have knowlegde and experience

What is Coaching?

Coaching is a discussion between two people, the coach and you. Usually this is face to face, at a convenient location. Sometimes it can take place over the telephone, so you can be in the privacy of your own home or perhaps at work. Whichever suits you. The discussion usually lasts about 60 minutes, though the first session can take up to 90 minutes. So what happens during that time?

Invariably we talk about you. About what you want from coaching. Helping you achieve the clarity about what you want in life. Giving you the confidence to move towards that outcome of a more successful and happy life. The life that you deserve to lead. Of course, you need to take some steps to get there. The number of steps depends on what you want. A few big steps or more smaller steps. The choice is yours.

Each session is tailored to help you achieve a step towards your outcome. There is no one-size-fits-all format or process. You are unique and so deserve a flexible approach that meets your needs. Your coach will work within a framework to ensure you stay on track, and give you all the support you need. A supportive relationship that will allow you to face up to the challenges. It is a partnership of equals, based on a shared feeling trust and empathy. Your coach will encourage you to stand on your own two feet. You have the solutions and the resources within you to move forward. To move to a happier, more balanced life.

Coaching is different from therapy or counselling. Coaching focuses on the future. It helps you to create possibilities and opportunities to get more out of life. You have all you need to get there. You will find your own answers. Your coach simply guides you to your destination. To pursue a fulfilled and authentic life. To inspire you and motivate you to take that first step towards that outcome. Then the next step, and the step after that. Only you can take those steps. Only you can live the life you want to lead.

Executive Coaching

You are successful. You know what you want. You have worked hard to get there. Yet, you know there is more...

  • Are you as successful in all areas of your life?
  • Is your work life balance the way you would like it?
  • Are you controlling your work or is it controlling you?
  • Are you wondering where to go in your life and career?
  • Do you have someone to talk to in complete confidence, without judgement?

We all have these questions, and more. We have the answers, yet they seem just out of reach. The pressure of responsibilities, deadlines and priorities keep you from focusing on what is important to you. Yet time moves on. Opportunities pass. Choices reduce. Control is lost.

authentic change offers a unique Executive Coaching programme to help you regain control of your life. There is no-one else who can do it but you. All the great achievers, in the world of business, sport, and government have great coaches. They offer that little extra, that encouragement, that spark, that inspiration, guiding you towards high performance. In all areas of your life. So that you achieve balance and fulfilment.

Typical benefits include:

  • Desired balance between your personal life and work
  • Clearly defined mission, vision and values for all areas of your life
  • Increased performance in and out of work
  • Effective relationships and excellent communications
  • Development of an effective leadership style that lets you get everything done in the time allowed

Career Coaching

In times of constant change and uncertainty, sometimes it is better to take control of your career rather than leaving it to others. Only you have your best interests at heart. Managing your career means you have more choices to do what you want to do with your career. Career coaching can help in a number of ways:

  • To work out the best course of action when redundancy is announced
  • To manage the emotional roller-coaster, whether the change is by choice or circumstance
  • To determine which career is best suited to your talents
  • To focus on a career path that will give you long term job satisfaction
  • To draw up a plan to find the best job for you
  • To develop your CV and accompanying letter to get you that interview
  • To be your best at interview
  • To negotiate the best deal when the job offer is made
  • To successfully manage your first 90 days in the new role
  • To make a successful transition to retirement
At authentic change we have many years of experience of career coaching, from both personal experience and through helping many others achieve their ambitions and aspirations in managing their career. The next step is easy. Contact us. We can then discuss your individual needs and how to get the best for you.

Business Coaching

  • How do we get from here to there?
  • How can we bring everyone with us?
  • How will we know when we get there?
  • How do we check we are on the right path?
  • Can we show a benefit on the bottom line?

  • Change is a fact of life. It is inevitable. It can be a friend or foe. Fight it and perish. Embrace it and succeed. It is a simple choice. The outcome impacts upon all it touches. Do you recognise the change? Are you ready for it? Can you manage it successfully?

  • Clear and robust communications

  • Integrity and respect throughout the organisation

  • Isn't there more to life than this?
  • Why am I working such long hours?
  • Where has all the fun gone in my life?
  • Will I ever find that special person in my life?

About Me

Perhaps I can help you make a difference.

Phil Wong

Director and Co-Founder

Hello! I’m Phil and I have been a working full time as a coach for over 15 years, and some years before that when I was a manager. I am an engineer by background as I was curious as to how and why things worked the way they did. That evolved into trying to understand why people behaved differently under different circumstances and, most importantly, how I could help.

Like me, you have challenges that you are facing every day. Some minor, some major. These impact us in various and unique ways, which means there is no one solution or magic wand that will bring everything back to normal.

To help you cope, I like to create a safe space where you can start to heal and be yourself again. I will support you to in a confidential, non-judgemental way to find a route through the stresses and the tensions that are out there so that you can face up to them confidently and once more be your authentic self.

As a husband, dad and a carer, I’ve been through a lot as well. I’ve been told I am a great listener, patient and have a good sense of humour. It would be a privilege to work with you to help you find the answers you need to move on.


What Clients say?

Phil was an empathetic listener. He never tried to solve one’s problems but very skilfully was able to help one find a way forward after every coaching session. He has the ability to instil confidence and is clearly someone of the highest integrity in whom I had complete trust in discussing some extremely sensitive matters.

Richard Carey CEO, NHS

I started the Executive Coaching programme with a touch of skepticism but was very quickly convinced of the benefits. This was very much as a result of Phil’s obvious skills and enthusiasm. I found the coaching programme to be highly beneficial, extremely relevant and very timely. Phil is very approachable, highly skilled at focusing on core issues, and has a good sense of humour.

George Black CEO, Glasgow City Council

Phil’s flexible approach and the mix of techniques used was a powerful combination, challenging my thinking to bring the best out of me and supplementing that with examples from Phil’s own experience to help build my confidence around actions. I found Phil’s style easy to engage with and he blended challenge and support very well. I’d recommend Phil to anyone looking for support on a complex business or personal challenge.
