It all began with 'THRIVE' back in 2019.
In 2022 we added 'RISE' to the lineup.
RISE, THRIVE .... there was capacity for more.
There was a demand for more!
Once again, cue Zoe sitting on the floor with post-it notes, pens and paper to brainstorm the topics that were coming up in Coaching sessions and in conversations with individuals.
In true form a couple of coffees, and many post-it notes later, The 'FLOURISH' Programme was created.
RISE, THRIVE, and FLOURISH.
In this blog, I am going to break down everything you need to know about the programme.
That way, you’ll know, if it’s right for you.
Self-Development programmes are an investment of both your time and money and working on yourself is a very personal journey. It is important for you to find the right coach and the right programme for you.
I want to give you a good overview of the programme to help you determine if this is a good next step in your journey. You can, of course, talk this through with me if you prefer, and book a quick call here.
What is FLOURISH?
FLOURISH is a 12-week programme with a focus on self-development. It is all held online to help you to focus on yourself, and make improvements across all areas of your life.
12 topics to help you learn, reflect and challenge yourself to make changes.
Tools, strategies, and frameworks designed to help you to flourish in life.
The content and delivery style are relaxed and tailored to each group of participants with my promise, and commitment, to help you get as much out of the programme as possible.
How will I know I am ready for this self-development programme?
You would like to work on changing how you approach aspects of life.
You like the idea of working through this with other people.
You are looking to learn new tools and frameworks that will help.
You are ready to set aside some time each week to focus on yourself.
You are ready to make some changes and need support and accountability to do this.
You know that investing time over 12 weeks will help you with consistency and momentum.
You are ready, to be honest, and open with yourself, to help you move forward.
Why was FLOURISH created? My own coaching and self-development journey started with a group programme.
I attended a group self-development training programme and found that being with other people as part of the programme really helped me to move forward.
The programme helped me to understand myself better. This helped me to understand other people around me better, and the support of others on the programme helped me to challenge myself to make many much-needed changes.
In 2014 I became a licensed in-house trainer for the same programme. For every programme I delivered I not only saw the powerful impact of group programmes, I learnt more about myself from them too.
In 2018, I was no longer able to train that particular programme and so I started to float the idea of designing my own programme to deliver.
It has grown and evolved since then, with other programmes added, however, the ethos and aim remain unchanged:
Help people to understand themselves, and be a better version of themselves.
In 2019 I created 'THRIVE' and have enjoyed all the elements of bringing people together and working with them as a group.
In 2022 I wanted to expand on the topics delivered in 'THRIVE' to help participants explore different approaches to help them live the life they want and 'RISE' was created.
Now in 2023, I am expanding on this further. With 'RISE' now concentrating on Life Skills, and THRIVE focusing on Wellbeing, FLOURISH will be a programme that creates a space for people to enhance their self-development.
The weekly group workshop gives the group an opportunity to come together and learn and reflect. The challenge to change, and taking those steps of change needs to come from you. You will, however, have support from the group, guidance from me, and the accountability of the workshops each week to help check in on your progress.
What is included in the programme?
12 Live and Interactive Group Workshops
12 Activity pdf with an explainer video/audio for each topic
12 Workshop recordings
12 Workshop presentations
Additional resources for each topic
Access to a private WhatsApp group to communicate with the group

Access to my guidance and support daily.
What do the modules include? There are 12 modules in total. For each module, there is an activity sheet, an explainer video/audio and a weekly interactive workshop. The video is bitesize. It is an introduction to the topic and an overview of your activities for the week. The workshop dates will be announced in advance and start at 1930hrs GMT. The main content will be for 60 minutes with 30 minutes for discussion and check-in. The workshop will be recorded and uploaded overnight so that if you miss a workshop you can still have access to the content quickly.
It is recommended that you attend the workshops however we know that life can sometimes have other ideas.
Topics will include:
The Dimensions of Flourishing
Finding Your Purpose
The Pursuit of Happiness
Living with a Gratitude and Appreciation Mindset
Visualisation and Manifestation
Body Language and Cues
Managing Energy and Energy Types
Understand our Ego and Soul
Understanding and Preventing Self-sabotage
Changing Your Beliefs and Mindset with the ABCs of CBT
How much does it cost? Will the price go up? The programme is £199. There is an option to split this into 3 payments.
There is no plan to put the price up. The content of the packages may be changed.
There are additional package options. You may want to book a call to discuss which option may be the best fit for you.
How does the price compare to other programmes? Programmes can really vary in price and since more companies have created courses and programmes online, the options, and in some cases, the price, have increased.
Feedback from participants at the end of the programme is that the programme is good value for money. Some have even said it is underpriced for the value that they received.
A group programme is often someone's first experience with self-development training or coaching. For many participants, this is their first step into this world and therefore it feels like a huge step to take. I want to make this as comfortable as possible for people.
The price of the programme has been consciously set, with this in mind. It is set to ensure that the programme is affordable to the majority.
The content is 'need to have' not 'nice to have' and so my intention is, therefore, to make this as accessible as possible in terms of financial investment, time investment and the logistics of travelling, dependent care, and use of online tools.
"Working with Phoenix Coaching has helped me improve ME, improve my life, and improve my future"
Who is this for? The Programme is not for everyone and I only want you to sign up if it’s right for you.
This is not just about learning, it is about actively making those first steps of change.
It will not be easy at times.
There will be times of reflection and for you to be really honest with yourself.
There will be times when the change is uncomfortable and challenging.
What I can guarantee is that I will do all I can to ensure that you get what you need from the programme.
What I need from you to help me to achieve this, is to show up, be engaging, be open, and stick with it. Set aside time to read and digest the content.
For every step you take, I will be right with you to guide and support you.
This is for you IF:
You are ready to make some changes.
You are ready to engage with others on the programme and be a supportive member of the group.
You’re ready to be open and honest with yourself about what is not working.
You are ready to take ownership and responsibility for your own life.
You are ready to invest time, money and energy into making this happen.
You are ready to take some steps forward.
You are open and curious about a different way of approaching things.
The possibilities of what you could learn and change on this programme excite you, (even if it also worries you a bit too!)
This is NOT for you if:
You just want to learn and don't feel ready to implement changes.
You have a specific challenge you are facing.
You do not feel comfortable sharing any information with others.
You’re not willing to engage with others in the group.
You struggle to show up and commit.
How much time should I set aside? On average it is recommended you set aside 2hrs to focus on the activities and 90 minutes for the group call.
This may vary from week to week. Some activities invite you to pause and reflect and others are spread out over the week with a small reflection each day.
There will be some topics that you want to spend more time on and others you may skim over.
If you are someone who likes to digest and spend time on things then please set aside more time so you do not feel rushed.
Can I see behind the scenes? Before the launch of each programme, I will run a challenge which you are welcome to join.
#Feel4Phoenix is a great way to experience what the programme is like in terms of the content, the structure and the delivery.
There will also be plenty of opportunities for you to ask questions.
At the end of the challenge, there will be opportunities, and an incentive, for you to join the next programme before it begins.
Details of the free challenge will be linked to the main page. Click through to find out more.
Who will be delivering the training? I write and deliver the content.
A bit about me… I have worked as a Life and Wellbeing Coach full-time since 2017. Prior to that, I was Coach and Mentor and a Self Development trainer whilst working for the police.
Since leaving the police I have continued my own journey of self-development and have trained as an *NLP Master Practitioner and have completed a coaching programme with a global Executive Coaching Company. I have also completed additional training in *CBT, *ACT and *DBT as well as Nutrition and Sports Psychology.
I consider myself a work in progress, I will openly share areas that I continue to work on and whilst this programme is about you and your journey, I will join the openness of the group and share my experiences.
I am a parent. My son is now grown up and realising his own dreams. I have a lot of t-shirts in my wardrobe of life experience and I also have the training and professional development to guarantee that I am well-placed to support and guide you.
"I really liked the way that Zoe ran the sessions.
They were easy to follow with lots of lighbulb moments throughout"

What results can I expect? Every participant has taken something different away.
Tools that can be used straight away.
Frameworks that can be used again and again.
Gaining momentum of changes.
Understand themselves better.
Improve interactions with others.
Clarity of where they are heading.
"The style of delivery feels inclusive, positive and non-judgemental.
It is a safe space to think, and share, and grow"
Can anything more be said about the programme? This is not a 'cookie cutter' package. I pride myself in taking the time and making an effort to help people get as much as they can from the programme.
