Working as a coach and consultant means I get to know my clients as they get to know themselves. I’ll follow clients as they explore the different facets of who they are, the life they live and the career they have, where they currently are and where they would like to head. To bring a sense of balance to this I’d like to share some of myself here in the hope that it helps transform me away from being just another face on a screen and into someone you could possibly see yourself working with.
I bring myself to my coaching practice. I work with honesty, an open mind and kind curiosity and only ever ask that my clients do the same - no more but also no less. Coaching works best when you are able to be who you are in the present and are ready and motivated to make changes, to learn about yourself and work together towards an outcome that is chosen by you.
Coaching - whether it’s corporate, career or life coaching - is personal work because we bring ourselves to everything we do. I have the utmost respect for that. Working with integrity and honesty while prioritising the development of trust between my clients and myself is at the core of what I do.
In my experience, genuine growth and change is achievable when three things fall into place. The first is when a person knows who they are. The second is when a person knows what they truly want - not what they think they want - and understands what has been preventing them from getting there. The third is when they are able to generate the belief, momentum and clarity that will get them there.
A coaching conversation offers a space that is yours. It can be a place for the development of personal insight. A place to find some order in the chaos of life. A place to better understand yourself. A place to figure out where you’re going and why. A place to plan how to get there.
As a coach, my priority and hope is that the coaching space will be one where you feel able to reflect and develop your self-understanding in whatever way is most helpful. A space where you feel supported and encouraged if times are challenging. A space where you can feel excited and energised by the possibilities ahead of you and plans you want to put in place. Ultimately, the coaching space is one where you can explore your life, yourself, your career and your narrative and get to grips with where you’d like to head and what you need to do to get there.
I am an integrative practitioner so I will bring in tools, techniques, research and theory from a range of areas. I’ll always ask that you provide the content and the direction of the work we do and in turn I will fit anything I bring into the space to facilitate our work together to your desired outcome.
