Introduction to the Practice

The Practice comprises an experienced and unique blend of qualified psychotherapists and trained executive and performance coaches, designed to help successful, high achieving individuals like yourself solve issues that may be preventing you from reaching your full potential. Our purpose is to provide you with the support and the tools you need to confidently achieve your ambitions and your objectives at work and at home. We do this through bold transformative conversations that challenge you to make the necessary changes to be the best version of you.

Our values

How we work

Method

What to expect

When we choose to work with you, we begin a conversation that is, first and foremost, authentic, genuine, compassionate and discrete. We will approach your problems with an intelligent and analytical mind, and ask good questions. Our conversations will be fearless, honest and direct– we believe coaching should feel demanding if it is to produce change!

We work in the following ways.

1

Understanding

We take time to understand you from the inside-out. There are no ‘band-aid’ or ‘one size fits all’ solutions that do not understand the origin of the difficulty. We ask about your story in very specific ways to elicit the information we need to get to the heart of your issue.

2

OBJECTIVES

Once the problem is clear, we help you synthesise and make sense of the main issues you face. This part of the process produces a handful of concrete, measurable and realistic goals which guide the content, pace and direction of subsequent sessions.

3

Results

You will be pushed to move forward, and progress the issues you have identified as highest priority, and helped to think outside the box - to be unconventional and courageous in order to reach solutions that will make a real difference to your life.

1

lights!
(30 minutes)

An initial sample ‘illumination call’ (telephone /Skype) to shine a light on your inner world, gather basic background details and unearth main objectives and drivers for your enquiry. It’s also a chance for you to ask questions, and for both of us to ascertain whether this is likely to work from a ‘chemistry’ point of view. If we don’t feel we can help, we’ll be honest, and offer suggestions for suitable alternatives.

2

camera!
(2 hours)

A detailed face to face assessment in person. This usually takes two hours and is chargeable, however this fee is redeemable when you purchase a coaching package from us. We will take a look at the whole you. Let’s examine your story and pay attention to the bits where the script is not working out as you imagined.

Once your background and aspirations are understood, we present options of how you can work with us. At the end of this session, we decide together whether you would like to embark on a coaching package, and which of the practice members would be best placed to work with you. It may be that a specific associate has specialised skills which will be useful for you.

action!
(each Conversation is 1 hour)

Once we agree to work together, we’ll offer you a package of coaching. We know from experience that the most successful outcomes are achieved for individuals that ‘sign up’, ‘show up’ and commit fully and completely to this process from the outset. The package will include six sessions of coaching over three months via Skype/Facetime or in person, plus as much between-session conversation via email, and text as is helpful for you. In addition the package includes up to three extra telephone ‘laser coaching’ sessions (10 minutes duration) to help you power through those glitch points you may experience.

We will carefully agree objectives with your coaching and review progress each time we meet, with a formal review at the end of each package. If required, we may suggest a further package of sessions to extend and deepen the work. This depends on the complexity of the challenges you bring, and what you want to achieve.

The Practicalities

Location
Book an Appointment
Fees

We take a novel approach to location. We want to meet in a space and a way which suits you best. For example, this might mean a first face-to-face meeting in central London, and then subsequent sessions by Skype or FaceTime.

If you prefer to meet in person, we can source a discrete and smart meeting location appropriate for you – perhaps near to where you work or live.

Lastly, if it’s easier for us to come to your place of work for convenience, we can do this too. You just tell us.

You don’t need to be referred to arrange your initial ‘illumination call’ session, you can just call us on 0207 118 1700. If you prefer to email us, please contact us on at info@theivresenpractice.com or click the link below. We look forward to hearing from you.

We do not see clients under the auspices of medical insurance companies. All our clients are either self-pay, or their sessions are paid for by their employer or their family.

When we decide to work together, we will make you a package proposal. If you accept the offer, the full amount for the first package (six sessions plus between session support) will be payable at the outset of our work together. Monthly tariffs are also available, but the six session packages are discounted.

If the proposal doesn’t meet your budget, we have a carefully selected team of associates coming in at a range of price points who may be in a better position to help you. We can discuss this without embarrassment.
