What is Coaching?
The International Coaching Federation (ICF) defines coaching as "partnering with clients in a thought-provoking and creative process that inspires them to maximise their personal and professional potential."
Coaching is a collaborative relationship that supports you to not only clarify your goals and aspirations, but to understand why they are important to you, before putting plans in place to achieve them and to reach your potential.
My belief is that there is no ‘one size fits all’ in coaching. People come to coaching with unique strengths, values, needs and goals that we explore together. Sometimes their goals are already clear, and sometimes they emerge during the coaching process. I draw on a range of evidence-based coaching practices, from Positive Psychology to solution focused and behavioral approaches, as well as adult learning theory, to best support your individual needs. I provide clients with a safe, supported space to explore ideas, tools, strategies, and resources they can use for life. I listen deeply, providing alternative perspectives, a sounding board and asking questions that challenge people to look at their ideas and situations in a new light. This helps promote self-awareness and generates the insights which create forward movement. I offer accountability and an opportunity to co-create the plans, actions and mindsets necessary to support individual development, allowing people to thrive. I believe this not only contributes to their own personal and professional development, but also has a positive flow on impact on their teams, direct reports (if relevant), organisations, friends, family, and society at large.
Coaching can act as a catalyst for change, learning and development, increasing your choices, confidence and wellbeing. Coaching can support you to be the best version of yourself.

What I love about coaching:
"I love it when, through asking the right questions, a client is able to view a situation, conversation or idea with a different perspective and one which opens up their options and choices, increases their confidence and energises them.
I love it when they gain insight not only into what they want, but why they want it, leaving them excited to work on what comes next."
How Can Coaching Help?
Through either one on one, or group coaching, coaching can help:
If there's a gap between where you are now and where you would like to be, coaching can help.
How Does Coaching Work?
The coaching process starts with reflecting on where you are now, what you would like to change and what your coaching goals are. Then, through asking the right questions, providing insight and an objective perspective, we explore ideas and options to help you move forward. As your coach, I will both support you and also hold you accountable to implement the plans, actions and mindset necessary to achieve your goals. All coaching sessions are confidential, allowing you the space to explore your thoughts and feelings privately and without judgement. Your coaching journey and the insights it provides are often just as important, if not more important than the end result. Depending upon where you live, we can either work together face-to-face, or we can connect virtually (via Zoom, Skype, Facetime, WhatsApp, etc.). This allows plenty of flexibility.
