What is coaching?

Coaching is a partnership that supports you in creating a rich and fulfilling life. As you work with a coach towards the realization of your vision, goals and dreams, you discover more about who you are and who you want to be. Coaching helps people achieve results and sustain life-changing behaviors in their lives and careers. Using the tools and skills of coaching, we will create a strategy for your success that will deepen self-awareness, improve performance, and enhance the quality of your life.

 

Who uses coaches?

Coaching is mostly used by people contemplating, seeking or coping with change in their lives.

 

How does coaching work?

Coaching is by telephone during regular weekly 30 or 45 minute sessions. Coaching is very powerful by telephone as there are no visual distractions and it is a highly effective method. We are both better able to focus on the content of the conversation and there is also the saving in travel time and costs for both of us. You will receive coaching in the convenience of your home or office, allowing you to be in a comfortable place to really talk.

You provide me with a list of items that you’d like to work on, prior to our coaching session and we go from there. I’ll asisst you to solve the problems, and to make the most of your opportunities.

We’ll discuss your goals and I’ll assist you in designing the project, getting support and adding structure to make sure it gets done. We’ll talk about what you really want in life and how you can get it.

I’ll point out perspectives you haven’t considered, offer advice, help you plan your next steps, and celebrate your successes with you.

You’ll feel accountable to me, which keeps you on track.

With my coaching expertise, you’ll be able to make better decisions, set the right goals, and balance your commitments. You know: prioritise all those balls you have in the air.

And of course, all information you share is absolutely confidential between you and me.
