It’s no mistake that the word ‘coach’ is the same as the word for a vehicle to take you on a journey… as that is also what coaching does – it takes you from a current state or situation to a new one.  Coaching is a valuable conversation.  We will agree what you want to get out of the session, what you want to talk about and we journey towards that end, exploring what comes up as you move towards a successful outcome.

One of the lovely things about having a coach is that someone goes on the journey with you…. they are your advocate, and as they stand by your side, they offer a different perspective from what you’re seeing, so they enrich the view.  They notice things that you may not have – both about yourself and what you’re seeing or feeling.  They allow you to explore what else you’re good at.

Why work with a coach?  A coach is someone…

  • to be completely present with you
  • who cares about what you are talking about
  • who supports you to achieve your dreams and aspirations
  • who challenges you to look at your habits and question your beliefs
  • who asks the right questions to allow you to think to understand
  • who challenges you to take the next steps on your journey
  • external and can help you see the wood for the trees
  • who holds a space for you

How can coaching help you?

  • Defining and reaching your goals
  • Finding your purpose
