How Does Coaching Work?

Content

The content of the coaching session is always determined by the client.

Exploration

The coach creates a safe space for the client to explore all angles and perspectives.

Solutions

The client generates possible solutions and analyses them with the coach’s support.

Action

The coach holds the client accountable to the actions and by whens they’ve committed to.

ACC ICF Certification

The International Coaching Federation is the accreditaiton and compliance association for Professional Coaching across the globe.  They exist to ensure every ICF Accedited Coach represents the highest quality of professional coaching.  As a certified Professional Coach, you know that your coach has proven to have the training, skills and experience to best coach you, and they follow a specific Code of Ethics and Standards.

Partnering with clients in a thought-provoking and creative process that inspires them to maximize their personal and professional potential, which is particularly important in today’s uncertain and complex environment. Coaches honor the client as the expert in his or her life and work and believe every client is creative, resourceful and whole. 

What does an Integrated  Coaching Approach mean?

An integrated coaching approach means using tactics, strategies and ideas from various disciplines that study human behaviour.  In my coaching, I pull in different approaches to see what works best for my clients.  

I studied Social, Positive, Behavioural, and Organisational Psychology in University for four years.  Years later, in completing my Professional Coaching Diploma, I developed coaching skills in Ontological Coaching, Solution Based Coaching, and Neurolinguistic Programming.  As a Yoga Instructor and Personal Trainer, I use movement in the physical body to assist in shifting the mind.

By having a variety of perspectives on human behaviour, I can more tools to choose from for my clients.
