What is coaching?

A world class athlete depends on a seasoned coach to cultivate optimum performance to achieve their desired success. Similarly, a professional coach helps you to achieve your personal, professional and entrepreneurial goals, more effectively and quickly than if you acted alone.  In other words, you identify a gap between where you are and where you want to be – and a coach helps you bridge that gap.

 

What does a coach do?

 As your coach, I work in partnership with you to define, shape and achieve your professional and personal goals. Using proven coaching techniques, I help to help you take action towards creating the success you want, minimising the obstacles along the way. I focus on helping you uncover your inner wisdom and unlock your potential to create the solutions that achieve your desired success.

I help my clients to achieve greater self awareness, and support their journey to set and achieve goals that to enable them to live a more holistic, fulfilling and maximised life that reflects their true purpose, talents and desires.

There’s an overflow – Just as the process of coaching can be transferred from the sports arena to the board room, the benefits of coaching performs more than the achievement of specific goals. Coaching also provides a blueprint of success that can be translated into other areas of your life, the benefits are on-going, well after the coaching process ends, it’s infectious!

Is a coach like a therapist?

Coaching is not therapy or counseling. A coach works with you to improve your present situation, enhance the quality of your life and create new possibilities for the future, supporting you to break old patterns of unhelpful behaviour.

Who uses a coach?

Coaching is a powerful tool leveraged by successful individuals across all professions and walks of life.  Anyone can use a coach, from presidents and executives to students, parents, couples, retirees and business owners. Anyone looking for support in making changes to improve the quality of their life and career can use a coach.

How does it work?

Coaching takes place during regular sessions in person and/or by phone. We schedule regular appointments at your convenience. Using a range of techniques, I partner you to design your future and support you to achieve your goals, exploring possibilities, navigating obstacles, and inspiring and motivating you to complete specific actions that will move you closer and closer to towards your goal.

How long does someone work with a coach?

For coaching to be effective a minimum of three months is the usual term. However, some issues can be quickly resolved by short-term coaching, while some individuals work with me for a year or longer.

Does it matter where I live?

Individual coaching is not limited to geographical boundaries, as long as you have access to a telephone or computer we can work together.
