Executive Coaching

Life is forever unfolding and we often find ourselves in situations that we have never before faced.

Where do we go during those times?

Our coaches at Waverley Learning are here for you to provide an astonishing quality of held space in which you are able to see and honour your raw experience of life, to find inner space and a deeper resourcefulness. 

Our philosophy and approach to coaching is firstly appreciative and strengths based. We balance discovery on the part of the client with practical advice, challenge and direction from the coach. 

Our goal is to help the client shift thinking, behaviour, performance and actions through fresh insight, revelation and knowledge that presents choices for action. 

Our coaching is supported by professional supervision and our coaches have 20+ years of wisdom and discernment in coaching, mentoring, spiritual direction and counselling. 

When we coach people and teams, we follow accepted best practice guidelines. This ensures complete confidentiality for clients and involves a clearly staged process including contracting formally around an issue, needs or specific questions; using diagnostic tools as needed (we are experienced and qualified using a number of tried and tested tools, questionnaires and processes); ongoing exploration using techniques to aid interpretation of issues and options for progress; and regular reviews of progress to decide on how (and if) to continue.


Executive Coaching

When we work with senior people in an organisation, our aim is to provide a safe space for managers and leaders to pause, to reflect on their own resourcefulness, to identify enablers and blockages within the system (and perhaps their own thinking) and to move forward confidently.

Transition Coaching

The Waverley Transitions Programme is a one to one intensive coaching experience over several sessions. We have identified four distinct phases in a great transition. Our research and experience tell us that individuals (and teams) have to go through these phases and many of the component parts in each phase to give themselves a good chance of thriving in the new role or scenario.

Team Coaching

Using our frameworks for developing and sustaining high performing teams, we specialise in working with teams at important moments for them. We know that teams are required to take on new members, lose existing members, respond to pressure and challenge whilst delivering results and looking after the well being of members. We also know that leading teams is rewarding, inspiring and at times frustrating.

Performance Coaching

We can help you gain fresh insight and knowledge to shift your thinking, behaviour and performance. 

Our performance coaching typically focuses on an individual where there is a need to change or improve performance at work or in role.

Our People

Our team comprises people who have many years of individual experience working across many sectors and in many roles. Often, they have held leadership roles themselves in companies big and small. They are all supervised experienced coaches using a variety of proven coaching approaches to suit their client at the time.

Waverley Learning are very vested in what they’re doing, very committed. They’re dynamic individually and collectively, they are 100% invested to the learners when they go into a program, it really is a sense of ownership of the experience that I don’t necessarily always see with every other vendor or learning partner that we use.
Lisa Smisek - Director of Learning, Kearney
There’s a credibility and a humility that you just sense when you’re engaging with Waverley Learning. I’m personally very drawn to that.
Karen Brown - Director of People and Talent, Tearfund
It is the extent to which Waverley Learning understood all the requirements, the innovation that they brought, the talent they brought. Their whole style takes the frantic pace at which we work out of the equation, the messages comes through really clearly. They’ve tuned into the challenges of our organization and made observations that have given us added value. It’s always based on our needs.
Alison Maher - Head of Learning, GWR
Their Developing Skills course consistently gets the best feedback of any standard developmental course that we offer. They’re clearly doing something right in terms of engagement, for those individuals to realise their own development within that situation. Waverley Learning listen to what’s going on, the chats that they’re having with my colleagues. They’re able to play that back, this is what’s going on in your business. As an organization, they provide great insight into to us.
