The Way I Work
A Holistic Approach to Executive and Life Coaching
People often look for a coach when they are seeking self-development and change, feeling stuck or trying to navigate through a difficult problem. I believe the purpose of executive and life coaching is to support individuals with their goals, by providing a deeper understanding of both themselves and the environments in which they operate. Enabling people to step outside of their comfort zones is also a very important aspect of my coaching approach.
Many coaches treat work and life outside of work as very separate things. I believe that these are inextricably linked and therefore should be considered holistically. I aim to create a safe, non-judgemental space to work within. I also focus on maintaining heightened awareness in order to be fully present as a coach. Building more self-awareness is also something I support my clients to do. I strongly believe in the inherent human potential that is in all of us and seek to draw upon all my life experiences, including from business, music and martial arts, to support my clients to develop and grow.
The Cognitive Realm and Beyond
I believe in the power of engaging the whole of the being and envision moving beyond simply sitting and talking during sessions. While the cognitive realm of working with thoughts and beliefs is fundamental to my approach, I also introduce visuals, objects and body movement during coaching. Such methods can often help unlock a fresh perspective, particularly when pure linguistic reasoning has led an individual to feeling stuck.
I view coaching as a partnership built on mutual trust and honesty that allows the coach to offer challenge, while at the same time being supportive. I look forward to working with those individuals who want to look beneath the surface.
