Coaching is a refreshing way to take stock of our lives. It provides a safe, supportive and challenging space that enables the coachee to explore their own personal and professional development. A coach helps an individual to understand and eliminate barriers to more effective performance. The coach doesn't provide the answers or solutions. The success of the engagement rests with the coachee.
When I coach, I use paraphrasing and reflecting back techniques so you can hear your own thoughts. It is not like a normal conversation. I don't offer advice or tell you what to do. The process enables you to find your own voice within your goals and make positive steps towards achieving them.
I offer one to one coaching as well as group sessions.
I trained to be a coach in 2017 with Relational Dynamics 1st, Lancaster. The training was funded by a - n, The Artists Information Company. In 2020, I recently completed Action Learning Set Facilitator training with the Action Learning Centre and became an accredited Clean Language coach.

“I’d had quite a difficult set of experiences in a previous role and had taken some less demanding roles as a consequence. I’d had some coaching from Tavistock Consulting before that had really only taken me part of the way to resolution. Holly’s creative approach and uses of metaphor is a really unique and challenging way that helped me to formulate what had happened. That has helped me to make the changes that I needed to, to make my work life satisfying and purposeful. Holly’s unique approach has been transformational and I thoroughly recommend her.”

‘’Holly Davey has been working with a-n The Artists Information Company as a coach since 2017 when she first trained to become an accredited coach with us through our Visual Arts Coaching Course in partnership with RD1st. Holly has since been working with us to offer the benefits of coaching to the wider
a-n membership, providing a safe, confidential, developmental space within which to explore specific issues (either known, or as they arise), aspirations and challenges. Holly will continue working with a-n in the current annual iteration of our Coaching programme, bringing vital support to those seeking change, a shift in gear and renewed focus.’’
Director, Graft, Newcastle
‘’My coaching sessions with Holly began at a pivotal time for me and offered much needed guidance. I found the coaching techniques to be extremely valuable, as not only did they help me to navigate areas that I found challenging, but they unearthed points of discussions and solutions that emerged from my own experience and knowledge with Holly as a guide. I have been able to put the outcomes of my coaching sessions into practice as I develop the arts organisation that I co-run, and I feel empowered that I can overcome challenges and act upon my aims and values as an individual.’’
