Eva Storey - Resilience Coach

Are there times when you feel unsupported at work?

Are you struggling to find peer support from someone who has experience as a nurse and understands your situation?

Is your home life and self -care suffering?

I Can Help You Through 1-on-1 Coaching

I am trained as a coach to ask powerful questions, listen deeply and then provide a safe space for you to think through your answers. A good coach doesn’t tell you what to do but supports you to find your own answers and develop a plan to help you meet your goals.

Individual coaching package

One to one Coaching 

Coaching is for you if are feeling overwhelmed at work, struggle to say no, feeling like there is never enough time, have no time for your own self-care. You might be thinking about changing your job or wanting to develop into a leadership role. Maybe you feel that you don’t have enough experience to apply for a promotion or maybe you struggle with interviews. Often people talk about things in coaching that they have never told anyone. Coaching is a safe and confidential non-judgemental space to work on whatever it is that you want my help with.

Coaching can be tailored to suit you. I offer three, six and twelve-month packages

Feedback from my clients

About me

I am passionate about providing support for senior nurses. I know from first-hand experience that it is difficult to find support from someone who understands the pressure nurses are under today. I truly know that as a Nurse you are very busy and there is never enough time for your own self-care, and even if there was you are too exhausted to do anything. I know this because I have worked as a nurse for 38 years. Click here to listen to my resilience story Podcast with Bryn from WAREAL

Frequently Asked Questions

Coaching works in partnership with you and helps you to achieve your personal best and produce the results that you want in your personal and professional life, health and relationships.

The intention of coaching is to help you achieve your goals and help support you in becoming the best that you can be, your fabulous self!

Coaching will help you to identify actions that you can take to achieve your goals. My role as your coach is to provide you with a safe, confidential, non-judgemental space to help you work through and achieve your goals.

Coaching focuses on the here and now, exploring what is happening in the present, helping you to design your future by working in partnership with you and supporting you every step of the way. In the sessions, I will ask you questions to understand your situation rather than give you answers or advice.

It is important to note that coaching is not therapy, for example, counselling or mentoring.

Resilience is defined by Kathryn MCEwen as “an individual’s capacity to manage the everyday stress of work and remain healthy, rebound and learn from unexpected setbacks and prepare for future challenges proactively”. There are four domains of resilience: Physical health, Self-Management, Adaptability and Proactivity.

As a resilience coach I use the R@W individual tool which is a scientifically researched measure of personal workplace resilience measuring 7 components that interrelate and contribute to overall resilience. The individual report that you will receive will provide you with comprehensive feedback that is easily translated into actions through coaching.

Coaching takes place in your own home via Zoom or FaceTime using a computer or a mobile device. All you need is a quiet space free from interruptions and earphones/headset.

Typically a session will run for 1 hour, you can choose to have a 2 hour session if you prefer. For example, instead of 6 one hour sessions, you could have 3 x 2 hour sessions.

When you have decided that you are ready to be coached, I will send you a welcome pack which you will need to read through, complete the ‘about me’ form and return the signed coaching agreement. In the first session, we will work through the ‘about me’ form and then work on identifying a specific goal.

Payment plans are available on request. 1:1 coaching sessions require the first session to be paid before the coaching commences and then fortnightly by direct debit for the remainder of the weeks.

This months blog post considers why Nursing Burnout is a taboo subject and why nurses struggle feeling guilty about putting their self-care needs first and how this can lead to burnout.
