Do you ever have conversations with loved ones, friends, colleagues or just within your own ‘head talk’ where you use phrases like “if only….” or “when I …..”? If so, you might benefit from personalised coaching to help you focus on your challenges and aspirations to maximise your potential in a way that works holistically to achieve success, perspective and balance your life.
In a world that increasingly demands so much, but which seems to tolerate little, it is easy to lose perspective and in finding success, lose so much along the way. Coaching is a great way to stand back and take stock of what is important to you, what you are trying to achieve, why you want to achieve it and how best to reach that success.
Coaching provides a confidential and supportive environment to explore your challenges, aspirations and expectations to create action plans and goals to achieve them in a way that works in harmony with your values. The benefit and challenge of coaching is that you will be challenged to move beyond the ‘if and when’ in a way that supports and maintains positive change, rather than just dreaming about it.
Most people come to coaching because they seek positive change in their lives, something better in life, albeit that the impending change may be unavoidable
My approach to coaching is a collaborative one that works from the assumption that you have the underlying resources to support change and growth without becoming dependent on me.
I believe that my task as the coach is be ‘expert’ at helping you to identify your own direction and strengths and to resource and support you to undertake positive developmental actions where this is seen as being desirable.
Many of my clients have found that a few coaching sessions, at the end of a period of formal counselling, can be a very positive way of integrating growth and learning experienced through a therapeutic process.
