About Green Shoots Coaching

Michaela Oldfield - Green Shoots Coaching

To help you understand more about Green Shoots Coaching and my aims, I’d like to start with a personal story.

A few years ago I was working in a corporate professional development role. I was two decades into my career, and though I found working with individuals hugely rewarding, I was no longer satisfied with my life or career as it was.

Luckily, I was able to use my experience in personal development to take a good, hard look at my life and recognise which aspects weren’t working for me anymore. I identified key areas for practical change, and addressed these one by one to build a lifestyle that was more in sync with my personality and values. This process changed my life: I left my corporate role behind and started my own business.

That business was Green Shoots Coaching, and one of the reasons I’m so passionate about the work I do is because I was my own first client. I understand just how much of an impact dissatisfaction with our careers or certain areas of our life can have on our overall happiness, and I know how rewarding it can be when you take steps to fix it.

How Does the Green Shoots Coaching Process Work?

Today, Green Shoots Coaching is a successful coaching business that provides vital services to a wide variety of clients. I work with individuals, business owners, corporate clients and other personal development professionals in order to empower them to make positive decisions and move forwards.

About Green Shoots Coaching

I’m different from many other coaches in that I don’t work within just one area of expertise. Instead, I specialise in four distinct areas: business, life, career and relationships. By working across these four areas I’m able to offer a holistic, comprehensive service that won’t limit you to addressing one specific set of issues. This approach has proved to be very valuable, and I’ve built a national reputation for the ‘crossover’ work I do, particularly the coaching I offer for couples who are in business together.

Green Shoots Coaching is based in York. I typically work with clients over a series of hour long sessions. Many of these sessions take place in my welcoming coaching room, but I’m also happy to offer sessions via web chat, telephone, or at the clients’ own venue when necessary.

I currently hold accreditations and affiliations with the following bodies:

  • The European Mentoring & Coaching Council
  • The Oxford School of Coaching & Mentoring
  • Dovetail Divorce Solutions
