Coaching

Why Coaching?

As someone famously said: There are things we know, things we know we don’t know and things we don’t know we don’t know.

Coaching gets at the stuff we don’t know we don’t know about ourselves. Coaching helps you to understand how your brains can hijack your best intentions and stop you achieving your goals in life, while giving you the understanding and the tools to do something about it so that you can be more effective in your personal and working life.

A coaching program comprises six one hour coaching sessions, conducted face to face or via Skype. In the first session we get to know each other, discuss your goals, the specific challenges you are facing and agree on the focus of the program. Each subsequent session explores a particular personal or work related challenge you are facing and focuses on developing your capability to meet this challenge in positive ways. In the final session we review the new competencies you have developed and decide whether further coaching would be beneficial.

My approach to coaching is based on the latest findings from Neuro Linguistic Programming, Mind Science, Integral Theory and the great spiritual traditions of Yoga and Buddhism. I encourage you to enquire into your personal and professional circumstances and take action towards lasting change and a more fulfilling life.

What can you expect to gain?

The program will help you to:

  • Achieve clarity around personal and work goals;
  • Better understand the patterned ways of thinking and behaving that stop you achieving your goals and develop strategies for changing these;
  • Enhance your feeling of being in control of your personal and working life;
  • Improve your communication skills and the quality of your personal and business relationships;
  • Run your own mind rather than have it run you.
