Coaching is a powerful process which helps untangle your thoughts and create space for new (and sometimes surprising) solutions to arise. It's a process of connecting more deeply to your innate creativity and intelligence, and applying it purposefully to bring about personal transformation and take action towards the goals and causes that you are passionate about.
At The Field we (Amayah and Vid) are increasingly encountering people trying to make sense of the times we live in, and searching for ways to process their deep feelings, find new ways to cope and thrive through unprecedented change, and act on their desire to address purpose-led missions. Coaching can provide a container for re-orienting yourself in uncertain times, and we are particularly committed to creating space for people to process issues like climate breakdown and social fragmentation, and the inevitable personal impacts that they bring.

WHAT PEOPLE SAY
"Amayah worked with me as a coach over an extended period of time. She has a rare quality of asking exactly the right questions, and really, truly listening. Amayah’s coaching style put me at ease immediately and enabled me not only to gain clarity but also to have the confidence to move forward quickly and confidently with decisions. I would not hesitate to recommend Amayah as a coach."
— Charlotte Nicol, Head of Culture Middlesbrough Council
What is coaching?
The International Coaching Federation defines coaching as 'partnering with clients in a thought-provoking and creative process that inspires them to maximize their personal and professional potential.' In other words, coaching helps people to overcome personal obstacles and achieve their goals in life and work.
As coaches we help clients gain clarity on what they want, what could be holding them back, and identify actions to initiate meaningful change.
Coaching is not therapy or mentoring, through we do offer mentoring separately or alongside coaching. The main difference in coaching is that we will work on future possibilities rather than the past, using forward-looking techniques that specifically focus you on exploring your goals and ambitions.
Working with us
Amayah is an accredited Executive and Life coach, and Vid is a psychologist by training, with a wealth of experience working with both individuals and groups. Many of our clients are involved with cultural, social and environmental change work. We draw on many different tools and approaches to help clients see their potential, and take steps to realising it. Our methodology makes use of coaching frameworks, powerful questions, systemic constellations and embodied practices depending on the needs and preferences of the client.
Our method is evolving through practice and ongoing learning, which is gathered in our various research projects. The latest, Feel Your Feelings, is available here.
You can choose to be coached by one or both of us. Our bios are here.
When we begin to work with you, we'll spend some time exploring what you'd like to get out of coaching, what goals you'd like to work towards, and what approach might work for you. Each individual is different and I adapt the process to suit your needs.
If you choose to continue, we will agree a number of sessions to work together, depending on the scale and ambition of your goals. Sessions last up to 90 minutes and can take place on Zoom, via phone, or in person in Trieste (Italy), Koper or Ljubljana (Slovenia).
Group work: Action Learning
Action Learning is a group coaching methodology that enables teams or peers to unpack challenges and find solutions through curiosity, inquiry and reflection. It is action-oriented and encourages commitment to learning and improvement.
We offer Action Learning facilitation for new and existing sets, and training to set up new groups that can be independently run.
