About me

My name is Rachel Dubourg

After over 20 years' experience in the Home Office and Ministry of Justice and a variety of senior leadership roles, I have built not only a wealth of corporate knowledge but also a passion for helping and supporting people to be their best. 

I understand the pressures of a modern workplace and have experienced first-hand the challenges of juggling a busy home life with a demanding career.

I made the decision to train and qualify as a Business and Personal Coach through Barefoot Coaching. I am also a member of the International Coaching Federation (ICF).​

About my coaching

I work across all forms of coaching, treating each person as an individual and tailoring the sessions to their needs.

 

I have worked with clients to:

  • Focus on personal growth and development, helping individuals clarify their values and goals as well as navigating career paths and transitions

  • Focus on improving performance and productivity in a professional setting, whether generally or on a specific issue/objective

  • Focus on improving confidence and self-esteem, working with individuals to get to the root cause and put support systems in place

  • Focus on ​reducing and managing stress, overwhelm and burn-out, including work-life balance or specific pressurised events

  • Focus on building leadership skills, and supporting through specific leadership challenges

  • Focus on managing challenging relationships and resolving conflicts, both personal and professional

“Working with Rachel has been a made a huge difference to the way I have approached some significant challenges both at work and home. She has a friendly and informal style which is backed up by years of experience in the corporate environment, enabling us to quickly build context and apply a wide range of coaching skills and models to work through any issue or situation.”

  • How do I find out if you’re the right coach for me?
    Coaching is a relationship, and it is important to make sure any coach is the right fit for you. For all potential clients I offer a discovery call, free of charge. During this 30-minute session, I can tell you a little about me, how I work and what I can offer, and you can say a little about you and what you’d like from coaching. After the discovery call, if you decide you’d like to go ahead, I usually suggest booking an initial block of 3-6 sessions.
  • How do the sessions work?
    One-to-one sessions are all conducted online over Zoom. Sessions tend to be 60-90 minutes long. The frequency of sessions is chosen by you as the client (usually every 3-4 weeks but may be more frequent if you are working towards a particular short-term goal).
  • What sort of coaching do you offer?
    I can offer coaching across multiple areas of personal and professional development, and if you’re not sure what you need, we can work through this together. I have helped clients with: - personal growth and development, helping clarify values and goals as well as navigating career paths and transitions - improving performance and productivity in a professional setting, either in general or on a specific issue/objective - improving confidence and self-esteem, getting to the root cause and putting support systems in place - ​reducing and managing stress, overwhelm and burn-out, including work-life balance or specific events - building leadership skills, and supporting through specific leadership challenges - managing challenging relationships and resolving conflicts, both personal and professional We can work on specific issues or challenges, both long-term or short-term goals. The focus is completely led by you.
  • Why should I choose coaching?
    Coaching provides a safe, confidential space where you can talk through any areas of your life where you feel stuck or unsure or just need to work through a problem or issue without judgement. A coach won't tell you what to do but will help you to provide answers for yourself.
  • Why should I pick you as a coach?
    With over 20 years-experience in the UK Home Office and Ministry of Justice, and a variety of senior leadership roles, I have significant corporate knowledge and a strong understanding of the pressures of a modern workplace. My educational background and work in the field of social research and criminology has given me a solid grounding in psychology and understanding behaviour. Throughout my career I mentored and coached individuals on career goals and challenges and developed a strong passion for helping and supporting people to be their best. I wanted to build on this experience and so left the civil service to train and qualify as a Personal and Business Coach with Barefoot ICF-accredited coaching programme. Feedback from clients I have worked with has shown me to be warm, professional and friendly which helps them to feel comfortable through the sessions. I have experienced first-hand the challenges of juggling a demanding career with a busy home life. I am Mum to a 9-year-old boy with special needs and have significant insight into neurodiversity and mental health difficulties. I treat every client as an individual and am passionate about creating a safe space for people to be able to share their experiences and thoughts securely and confidently.
