Coaching is Like a Washing Machine.
Coaching can be profoundly transformative, helping to build a more meaningful, creative and fulfilling life. Each one of us is unique, with diverse requirements from coaching; some find resolution within a limited number of sessions, while others benefit from a longer-term approach.
I often liken the process of coaching to that of observing a washing machine, looking through the glass door of the washer and seeing everything on fast spin, blurring into a mass of colours and shapes. You can see a bit of a blue shirt or a sock flying around, but nothing is distinct. Sometimes it can feel like that when you are overwhelmed by thoughts and emotions, everything in your mind spinning around in confusion?
When the machine stops you take out your washing and hang it on a line, and then you can see which shirt goes with which trousers and which socks match. Some small item, like a handkerchief, could have discoloured your white shirts, but once it is all out and separated you can see the damage and take steps to remedy it. Coaching is like putting your issues out on the clothesline and allowing you to step back, understand what is there and take action.
