What is my approach to coaching?

My role is then to to elicit from you options, solutions and actions that will get you to where you want to be and to support you while you overcome barriers and work towards your goal.  By listening to you, asking questions and reflecting back what I am hearing, I will help you understand the values, beliefs, assumptions, capabilities, skills, resources and behaviour patterns that are helping or hindering you. A simple definition is that coaching enables you to perform at your best.  My role as your coach is to draw out your resources, ideas and solutions. 

Coaching has a purpose: to enable you to get clear about what is important to you, e.g. what you want in life, work, career or recreation; then help you find your ways of achieving this.  That might be to enhance your performance or productivity, to find the right career, to develop your leadership behaviours, to step up into a new role, to align your life more closely to your values, to find the motivation to change and to grow or to help you to be the best you can be.   As your coach, I belief that you are capable, resourceful and have a world of possibility within you and, importantly, that you don't need fixing. 

My approach to coaching is a forward moving process, looking ahead to the outcomes you want to achieve and finding changes in thinking and behaviour that will get you there. By listening to you, asking questions and reflecting back what I am hearing and offering my observations, I will help you understand the values, beliefs, assumptions, capabilities, skills, resources and behaviour patterns that are helping or hindering you. 

Getting really clear on what you really want is key, and we will spend time making sure that clarity is achieved and what success will look like for you.  

My role is to elicit from you options, solutions and actions that will get you to where you want to be and to support you while you overcome barriers and work towards your goal.

Part of my role is to create a safe space for you to think and speak openly and honestly.  You will not be judged by me.  I am here to support you, to trust you, to challenge you, and to raise your self awareness in order for you to achieve the goals and outcomes you want. 

Each client brings their own unique self to coaching and my approach is to treat you as a unique human being.  Together we will identify and remove the interference that is getting in the way of you realising your full potential.
