Coaching provides a safe and confidential space where you can be yourself and enter into a meaningful and productive conversation about your career or life circumstances, challenges and desires for change. A coach provides support by assisting you in gaining a deeper understanding of yourself and your situation, helping you explore different perspectives, your strengths and sense of purpose in order to help you get un-stuck. In essence, a coach helps you unlock a broader range of ideas and options for moving forward.
The Association for Coaching (AC) describes coaching as:
For nearly two decades, I’ve dedicated myself to coaching for positive change, accumulating thousands of hours of 1-1 coaching, training, and continuous professional development. This journey has shaped me into the coach I am today, blending together my intuitive coaching style and my passion for positive psychology and wellbeing science. I firmly believe in the transformative power of coaching, rooted in the innate capacity of individuals to surpass limitations and foster personal growth and positive change, a belief continually reinforced by my coachees’ experiences.
My coaching style, whilst intuitive and integrative, is person-centered. I honor and respect each individual’s unique qualities and perspectives. I adopt a strengths-based outlook and aim to empower my clients to surface their inner wisdom, strengths, and values, resulting in greater clairity, a wider choice of options, elevated confidence and resilience.
Cultivating realistic optimism, I aim to support your wellbeing and potential. My approach is not only practical but it is hopeful and meaningful and helps people to become happier, healthier, and more successful in their endeavors.
