My Approach to Coaching

As a personal coach, I am committed to helping you explore and achieve your personal and professional goals. I offer a safe, encouraging environment where we can examine anything that’s currently going on in your life – good or bad.

As a compassionate, non-judgmental listener, I help you identify where you want to go, what’s holding you back and how you can get there. Here I often focus on Relationship Systems Intelligence. After all, no one exists in isolation, and relationships between people have a major impact on your behaviour and well-being.

When you move beyond your own ego and become aware of your connectedness with other people, you can develop new ways of thinking, acting and leading.

Confronting the issues
My no-nonsense approach sometimes involves naming ‘the elephant in the room’. The real problem that’s stopping you from moving forward and that you may not want to confront. By acknowledging the underlying issues, together we create opportunities for growth.

It’s up to you
Coaching can take place either in person or by phone. You set the agenda for each session. We can talk about an ongoing subject or a significant issue that’s come up since our last session. Making progress is very much a shared responsibility. A strong commitment by both of us is necessary to achieve lasting change.

My role is to listen, ask questions and help you come up with powerful actions that move you step by step towards your goals. Your role is to take action. Coaching mainly has an impact between sessions in your daily life. To achieve growth, you have to do the work and I hold you accountable.

The power of meditation
It takes time to build a solid foundation for personal growth. If you want to achieve lasting results, you have to look deep inside yourself. That’s why I sometimes use meditation and breathing exercises as part of my coaching. Quieting your mind reduces stress and brings you to a clear and positive state of mind, allowing you to tap into your inner wisdom. You accept yourself, become aware of your limiting beliefs and understand what’s really important to you. This indicates directions for personal growth. And as a result, you are able to approach the world with renewed energy and create effective, long-term change.
