From ex­pe­ri­ence, Jenni can help fam­i­lies get coach­ing

The Wokingham Paper - - BUSINESS - By JAMES HAST­INGS news@wok­ing­ham­pa­

WHEN her daugh­ter was di­ag­nosed with a se­ri­ous hip con­di­tion, Jenni Donato was de­lighted with the help she re­ceived.

There was ad­vice about spe­cial equip­ment her daugh­ter would re­quire and in­for­ma­tion on suit­able car seats and even cloth­ing.

But it was in those quiet mo­ments, of­ten late at night, that Jenni felt help­less and aban­doned.

“When we have lifechang­ing ex­pe­ri­ences like ill­ness, debt or go­ing back to work, there is of­ten lots of prac­ti­cal help avail­able but there may be a lack of per­sonal ad­vice and sup­port,” she ex­plains.

“We get no of­fi­cial train­ing and can never fully pre­pare our­selves for ex­actly how much our lives and re­la­tion­ships will change.”

To­day, Jenni is a

Life Coach who uses her ex­pe­ri­ence and sci­en­tif­i­cally proven tools and tech­niques to al­low clients to re­alise and ac­cept their cur­rent sit­u­a­tion, help iden­tify their own tar­geted so­lu­tions and de­velop struc­tured plans for suc­cess.

Based in Wok­ing­ham, she launched her own com­pany, Chance Coach­ing, and is an af­fil­i­ate mem­ber of the As­so­ci­a­tion for Coach­ing, work­ing to a strict Global Code of Ethics and con­fi­den­tial­ity. Her aim is to help oth­ers re­ceive the sort of sup­port she lacked her­self in her most dif­fi­cult times.

“Choos­ing to have a fam­ily is one of the most life-chang­ing ex­pe­ri­ences we can un­der­take. How­ever, no one pre­pares you for what it will en­tail and even the strong­est of us some­times strug­gle to nav­i­gate through the tough times,” adds Jenni.

“We can feel equally adrift when fac­ing other life chang­ing sit­u­a­tions such as unem­ploy­ment, debt, di­vorce or re­turn­ing to work af­ter be­ing away for a while.

“My role is to help peo­ple take con­trol of their life, fo­cus on self-de­vel­op­ment, im­prove the re­la­tion­ships with those around them and cre­ate a calmer and hap­pier home en­vi­ron­ment for them and their fam­ily.

“I will be there to help clients nav­i­gate through their own world, con­fi­dent in the knowl­edge that we won’t preach and – above all else

– we will pas­sion­ately care about help­ing find their own so­lu­tions.”

Chance Coach­ing is set up as a CIC (Com­mu­nity In­ter­est Group) which means the prof­its go back into the com­mu­nity.

Life Coach­ing can be car­ried out in a num­ber of ways in­clud­ing by tele­phone, video con­fer­enc­ing or in per­son.

“I be­lieve any client and coach should form a pro­fes­sional re­la­tion­ship where both par­ties can feel com­fort­able be­ing com­pletely open and hon­est.

“That is why I of­fer a num­ber of pack­ages which come with a free ini­tial con­sul­ta­tion in or­der for both par­ties to de­cide whether they would like to work to­gether and for a coach­ing pack­age to be specif­i­cally tai­lored.”

Be­ing a CIC also opens up op­por­tu­ni­ties to go for fund­ing to pro­vide ser­vices free of charge to par­ents who re­ally need it (within cer­tain el­i­gi­bil­ity cri­te­ria) and through part­ner­ships with or­gan­i­sa­tions such as Chance to Dance, a dis­abled chil­dren’s dance school in Wok­ing­ham.
