Coaching is a collaborative process between the coach and client, designed to help you move from your ‘present situation’ towards a better ‘future situation’.
It is not counselling, therapy, information or advice, more a process of facilitating thinking and action.
This process helps you identify and clarify issues and goals in your life, work or career, and the steps to achieving your desired outcomes.
My coaching style focuses on increasing self-awareness so that you are empowered into the future. Depending on the nature of the coaching agenda, I may also use tools and exercises to assist this process.
Using this approach, the outcomes of the coaching process will be more closely aligned with your individual values, priorities and preferences and will reflect a holistic and empowering approach to your life, work and career.
It’s very difficult to achieve the best outcomes for you without this clarity – it’s similar to trying to make a jigsaw without the picture on the box!
FINALLY, for the coaching process to be effective, you need to be ready to put in the effort. You will set the agenda and decide on and take the action steps, so you will be doing most of the work! I facilitate your thinking and accountability as you do this.
sessions last 60 - 90 minutes.
Sessions take place in-person in my home garden office, through Zoom video call or by phone, with many clients now recognising the added convenience of online
coaching without the distance barrier.
The timing or frequency of sessions is decided by you, the
client. The number of sessions varies depending on the nature of the coaching
and the person. The majority tend to range from just one, where someone merely
needs help in clarifying their thinking or identifying blocks, to three or four
sessions to work through and implement a process of change and develop clear
plans. Others like to return over a period of time for support as they work through challenges and opportunities.
