About Dovestone Coaching
My name is Jo and I'm the owner of Dovestone Coaching. I have been a coaching for five years and have been a fully qualified coach for three years. I run webinars, workshops and conduct personal coaching sessions.
I work with people who are stuck due to unhelpful thoughts and feelings. Using techniques based on Acceptance and Commitment Coaching and Training (ACT) I help them unhook from these unwanted thoughts. By creating some distance between them and their thoughts they can respond more flexibly, giving freedom from their inner critic. ACT is a well-evidenced psychological framework to help people move forward and reduce the struggle in their life. I don’t just coach clients on ACT – I use these techniques myself every single day.
I am a member of The Association Of Coaching as I believe in maintaining professional standards and continue to develop my skills through training and education.
I must admit, I don’t do extreme sports, go to huge music festivals, or explore exotic places. You won’t see photos of me hanging off rocks, in a Porsche, doing a triathlon or in the executive suite of a posh hotel drinking champagne, because that’s just not me. Instead, I value the everyday things. Things like date nights, a glass of wine with friends, relaxing with a favourite book or playing with the kids.
There’s magic in the everyday, I’ve found. It’s being present in these little, day-to-day things – the people and places that really matter to me – that makes my life rich and fulfilling.
