Dr Alessandra De Acutis BSc PsychD
I am a Chartered Psychologist and a Certified Coach. I have been coached myself and I found the process so powerful that I decided to train as a coach.
I strongly believe that every individual has the right and ability to reach their full potential and that is why I dedicated my life to making sure this happens for each and every one of my clients.
I have been trained to skilfully weave psychological approaches to the coaching process, always explaining the suitability and evidence base behind each intervention and getting the client's consent at the beginning of the coaching relationship.
My transformational coaching approach not only challenges your limiting beliefs and assumptions in a non-judgemental and compassionate way, it is results driven and it helps you build a sustainable plan to maintain the changes achieved during the coaching process.
Finally, I have been trained in group approaches and I regularly run team away days and team interventions to suit your team's needs. I use the coaching for capability approach, which is evidenced to allow for time to reflect on existing strengths , explore learning needs/areas for development and set powerful actions to move your team forward to its ideal productivity levels.
