Start changing yourself if you want to change the life around you

What is Coaching?

Coaching is one of the leading tools that successful people use to help them perform at their best and continue to create great results.

  • It is action-oriented and focuses primarily on the present and future.
  • It involves a partnership where through a thought-provoking and creative process you are inspired to maximize your personal and professional potential.
  • It uses a process of inquiry and discovery to build awareness, breed responsibility and provides the structure, support and feedback towards the right action being taken.

Through regular coaching sessions, you will determine what is most important to you and we will work to align your thoughts, words and actions accordingly.

 

As your coach, I will work with you to identify what you really want and support you in achieving this.

 

I will support and facilitate you to determine your own ‘answers’ through the work we do together. You’ll add new skills, knowledge and information to your own personal effectiveness toolkit and come away with learning and experience that goes on to serve you long after the coaching has ended.

 

Coaching is proven to work when two factors are present:

  • You must be willing to learn, grow and take action
  • You acknowledge there's a gap between where you are now and where you’d like to be (in any area of your life or work)

 

YOUR COMMITMENT TO YOURSELF THROUGH COACHING OFFERS A MEANS FOR MORE OF WHAT YOU DESIRE

 

Life Coaching can support you in working towards a development or improvement in ANY area of your life. This includes health and body, finances, business, relationships, life balance, time management and organisation, communication, creative expression, confidence, new ventures, legacy and much more.

 

 


 

What are the benefits of coaching?

  • Get clear on what it is you really want
  • Establish how to best close the gap between where you are now and where you'd like to be
  • Dramatically increase your motivation and confidence levels
  • Learn how to break through whatever's held you back in the past
  • Develop new empowering habits and rituals of success
  • Achieve results much more rapidly than you would on your own
  • Make dramatic improvement in any area
  • Be supported, encouraged and challenged by a coach 100% committed to you and your goals

Who works with a coach?

Coaching is for anyone ready to make a change and to start creating more of what they want.

 

Think of it as 'sharpening the saw' towards greater effectiveness, resourcefulness, creativity and more. Coaching seeks to harness the strength of what's already working and maximise the impact, as well as attending to areas where 'bridging the gaps' may be required.

 

Coachign sessions are uniquely tailored to individual needs, so anyone can benefit from the coaching process, no matter what stage they are at in their personal or professional life.

 

 


 

How is coaching different from counselling or consulting?

Counselling essentially deals with emotional issues of the past, looking to resolve the impact these are having on the present day, and consultants are sought out for the specific advice and solutions they provide.

 

A coach's focus is on helping you to discover your own best, and a coach facilitates the creation of new ways of being towards cultivating greater effectiveness and success. The focus is always on moving forward, achieving growth and measurable results.

 

 


 

In what ways can I coach?

Coaching can effectively take place whether online, by phone or in person. Each method works just as well, so it's really about your preference and perhaps locational logistics. Distance is no barrier to coaching. I presently coach people from all over Australia and also overseas.

 

 


 

How do I choose a Coach?

The key thing to look for will be the 'right fit'. As coaching is a personal journey, it will be important for you to feel comfortable with your coach and likewise, your coach with you. Select someone whom you feel you can easily relate to and create a powerful partnership with.

 

 


 

What is an ICF Credentialed Coach?

This is a coach who has been credentialed by the International Coach Federation as having demonstrated that they have met the stringent requirements of coaching. They have received very specific coach training, achieved a designated number of experience hours, have been coached by a mentor coach and have passed a rigorous examination process. A credentialled coach is not a weekend or short-course graduate - so you can rest assured you are getting a professional service from a seasoned professional, qualified to deliver results.

 

 


 

Why choose an ICF Credentialed Coach?

The answer to this is the same as why you would choose a qualified accountant to handle your financial affairs or a lawyer who's passed their formal examinations to represent your legal matters. You want to know that as a professional, they have attained a certain level in their profession.

 

Choosing an ICF credentialed coach means greater peace of mind.
