What is Coaching?
Enabling Your Personal Growth
Life coaching helps you to deepen your self-awareness and reach your goals step by step. I will help you to make the changes you want through using a unique and effective combination of Co-Active Coaching, mindfulness and other self-development tools.
The ICF defines coaching as 'Partnering with clients in a thought-provoking and creative process that inspires them to maximise their personal and professional potential'.
Broadly speaking, coaching is a process that allows an individual or group of people to reflect and gain awareness of:
who they are
what is important to them, their values, strengths, challenges and options
what are the dreams and goals they have
what action to take in order to make the changes they want in their work or in life
Coaching focuses on helping the coachee to take responsibility for identifying their own goals, assessing their own strengths and areas for development and identifying their own solutions for moving forwards. This is achieved by the coach providing a safe, creative and non-judgemental space, asking thought-provoking questions and listening to help the coachee explore, reflect and make decisions.
My clients engage in coaching for a variety of reasons. It can help you to make changes in your life, business or career, improve your performance, enhance your relationships with others or develop specific skills.
The emphasis is on you, who you are, and your essence rather than what your CV looks like. I will challenge you to think deeper and further than you ever have before, and help you to deal with the blocks and fears that have prevented your life from going in the direction you always wanted.
As with anything that is worth doing, you too need to be 100% ready to commit to the coaching process. Truly transformative and lasting results will follow.
What is Co-Active Coaching?
At its most basic, Co-Active means simply “being in action…together.” Or perhaps it might be more appropriate to say “being together…in action.”
As the pace of our lives has quickened, we have become increasingly action-oriented and results-driven. It seems expedient to dispense with all the “soft” stuff (being) and instead just push to “get the job done” (doing).
Unfortunately, this leaves us feeling disconnected and desperate for meaning and belonging. We wind up with what we might call “the hamster wheel” experience of life, as we run around alone in circles, desperately trying to get things done, only to find ourselves right back where we started.
This is why it is so important to begin with the “Co.” Action arising from this place of being and receptivity is whole and integrated, rather than disconnected and driven. In order for us to experience life as whole, action must be grounded in being, in our sense of connection to a larger wholeness.
When the Co and the Active go together, the action of our life is nourishing and fulfilling.
