About Sheryl Childs

I am a friendly, approachable and experienced performance, personal and career coach. I have worked in the field of learning & development for over 16 years for corporate clients and individuals. Working with people, supporting their personal growth and professional development is my absolute passion. I specialise in stress management and use a variety of psychological or solution focused methods to help support clients. Personal/Life Coaching Your sessions will be friendly, relaxed and completely confidential, giving you space to reflect; free to explore and reach a greater understanding of your self; making room for personal or professional development. Whether you are looking to remove personal barriers to change, looking to manage stress or anxiety, increase self-esteem, motivation, improve confidence or make decisions; coaching can really help you and give you the tools to reach your goals. Career Coaching Changing careers, going for promotion or interviewing for a new position has become increasingly competitive and challenging. I offer career coaching to help support you, wherever you are in your career including: - Competency based interview techniques - Improving confidence - Reviewing your CV and assessing your skills - Exploring new career ideas - Support after redundancy or getting back into work after time off - Management skills How? Depending on your reasons for using a coach, I tailor our sessions to be lead by you and your needs. Whatever your goals, I use a range of coaching tools, methods and techniques which can really help change the way you think, remove blocks and help you to positively move forward. I believe that the key to a successful coaching relationship, along with the experience of your coach, is trust and rapport. I encourage you to contact me so we can have a relaxed chat so we can see if we are a good fit.

Titi S.'s review on Apr 12, 2021

It has been a wonderful experience working with Sheryl. Sheryl's been helping me navigate all the doubts (big and little) that stops me from digging deep and pursuing my passion. I leave every session with tools, techniques and the confidence to help become a better person. I couldn't recommend Sheryl enough and I'm glad to have selected her (to be my coach) from the multitude of options available. Thank you Sheryl.

Simon L.'s review on Mar 05, 2021

Sheryl has an excellent way of communicating, she is able to set you at ease and make you feel like you are the only person in the world that she is interested in helping in that moment. She is calm, and concise and extremely knowledgeable. I always trusted Sheryl in all the training and sessions that I undertook with her, and would highly recommend her.

Carol M.'s review on Oct 13, 2020

I have had several sessions with Sheryl and she is amazing, always listens first and outs things into perspective. Sheryl taught me how to be more resilient and I can handle stress a lot better as a consequence.

Nita M.'s review on Oct 10, 2020

Passionate, approachable and inspiring is how I would describe Sheryl. She is a dedicated coach who is a great listener and has a natural ability to help others. She has given me the belief and confidence to return to work after a long career break and I cannot thank Sheryl enough for her positivity and continued support.

Kellie A.'s review on Oct 10, 2020

Sheryl provided me with techniques, guidance and support tailored to me to help with areas I needed at that time. This helped me to ensure that I didn't become overwhelmed or stressed about the things out of my control including showing me how to stop placing extra pressure on myself by taking a step back. This allows me to put it all back into perspective with the techniques she showed me allowing me to continue performing as I needed within my full time role but also as the mum my children and family needed me to be. Sheryl has been more than happy to do ad-hoc sessions with me as and when needed. Overall it was a great experience that has given me techniques and skills to use for the rest of my life.

Thank you, Kellie - so glad I could help and so great to see that you’ve used the techniques.

Christine P.'s review on Oct 10, 2020

I met Sheryl for 2 sessions of careers coaching when I was questioning whether I wanted to change careers. I'd also recently had a difficult time with bereavement and illness. I found Sheryl very empathic and understanding. Sheryl really listened and with relevant questions and prompts we explored my goals, dislikes, likes, strengths and weaknesses. I had a little bit of 'homework' which helped me to make the most of the sessions. It really empowered me to make decisions about my career. We met at her coaching room with had a calming environment which really helped me to open up to her.

Thank you for your review - I’m so glad I was able to support you.

Questions & answers

What should customers know about your pricing? (E.g. estimates, discounts, fees, package pricing)
For Personal coaching, I charge £40 per hour. Block bookings may be considered at a discounted rate. Career Coaching packages are available depending on the requirement of the client.
What process do you go through when starting with a new customer?
After a free initial conversation, the process of coaching starts with a session exploring your requirements or needs and understanding what you would like to get from the coaching process. My main focus at the start of any coaching relationship is building trust. Depending on what you need, I will use varying techniques to help support you to get to where you need to be. I have worked with many clients over the years, with many different goals including managing stress, anxiety, phobias, managing people in the workplace, relationships, parenting or controlling emotions etc. All of these will require a different coaching approach, from problem solving, performance coaching, to more therapeutic approaches such as Cognitive Behavioural Coaching.
What education or training is most relevant to your work?
My qualifications are as follows: Advanced Diploma in Coaching, trained in Psychological Coaching using Cognitive Behavioural Techniques. In addition, I am also trained in using Transactional Analysis techniques, a form of psychotherapy, to a level that is appropriate for use in coaching. CIPD Advanced Certificate in Training and Development. BA (Hons) Sociology I am a member of the Chartered Institute for Professional Development (CIPD) and the Association for Coaching (MAC) and follow their Code of Ethics.
Do you have tips or advice for someone hiring a pro in your line of work?
The only advice I would offer for someone hiring a coach is to speak to them first, set up a call or video call and trust your instincts. If you feel you can trust that person, that is the most important thing. Also, I would recommend that they have the qualifications and experience you are looking for.
What are some good examples of past customers?
I have worked with a huge range of individuals over the years, in addition to my corporate work, individuals such as GP's, NHS employees, managers, executives, parents, personal trainers, new business owners etc each with their own personal or professional goals.
How did you first get into this line of work?
I have worked in the field of Learning & Development in the corporate world for over 16 years for the Banking, Insurance and Automotive Industries; where I have coached, mentored, designed and delivered Management & Leadership training. My passion for coaching has developed over the years and from my experience, this one to one, self-directed approach is so powerful for improving self-awareness, creating change and unlocking potential.
