Coaching and Change
“You’re braver than you believe, and stronger than you seem,
and smarter than you think.”
– A.A. Milne
When clients connect with who they are, what they really want and why - and then begin to take action -
magical things happen!
That’s why I love coaching
Coaching provides you with a space to grow.
Like anything, in order for a coaching experience to be of any benefit, you have to engage it fully. The experience is as good as what you put into it. I understand this and am able to facilitate the process of opening up and act as a mirror so that you can see aspects of yourself from without as well as from within and that’s just the beginning.
"I never cease to be amazed at the power of the coaching process to draw out the skills or talent that was previously hidden within an individual, and which invariably finds a way to solve a problem previously thought unsolvable."
- John Russell
International Coaching Federation's Definition of Coaching
Change is both challenging and thrilling.
My goal is to light the fire within.
I am committed to the highest standards of professional practice and as an internationally accredited and credentialled coach. The coaching services I provide are all delivered within the International Coach Federation's definition of coaching and their code of ethics.
Professional Coaching is an ongoing relationship that can support you to produce extraordinary results in your life, your career, business or organisations deepening your learning, improving your performance, and enabling you to enhance the quality of your life.
In each session, you as the client choose the focus of conversation, and as the coach I listen and contribute observations and questions. This interaction creates clarity and supports you to move into action. Coaching accelerates your progress by providing greater focus and awareness of choice. Coaching concentrates on where you are now and what you are willing to do to get to where you want to be in the future.
ICF member coaches and ICF credentialled coaches recognise that results are a matter of your intentions, choices and actions, supported by my efforts and application of the coaching process as your coach.
In addition to my commitment as a professional I am also committed to practicing and using the skills and approaches I teach others so that I have integrity and substance as I support you on your journey towards wholeness. I am truly on the journey with you of fostering wholeness and strengthening the human spirit and re-igniting your inner spark.
