What is coaching and why is it helpful?

Coaching is becoming a growing area of interest for individuals and organisations. It has been widely recognised that it can positively impact on personal and professional lives resulting in increased engagement, resilience, creativity and productivity.

Coaching can reduce stress, help with anxiety, lead to better decision making and better relationships. In business, it can facilitate effective management, better team work and inspired leadership.

The International Coach Federation (ICF), which is the leading global organisation dedicated to advancing the coaching profession, defines coaching as partnering with clients in a thought-provoking and creative process that inspires them to maximize their personal and professional potential.

That’s a great definition, but there is more to it. As an experienced coach, I’d like to add a few additional insights to help you understand what coaching is and understand why it is so helpful:

  • Coaching is a space for you… It is about pressing a pause button and giving yourself time and your fullest attention. Coaching is a space where you are able to look at yourself and your life from a completely new perspective and arrive at the fullest understanding of who you are. Your actions, your decisions, your way of being in the world, and ultimately your results come from that place of understanding. This understanding serves as a foundation for everything that you wish to experience and create in your life.
  • Coaching is simply a conversation… And at the same time it is so much more than that! It is a different type of conversation than what you normally have with your friends, colleagues or family. Coaching conversation invites you to connect, reflect and listen more deeply to yourself and others. It takes you beyond your usual ways of thinking and enables you harness fresh insights, clarity, energy and potential within yourself. Everyone has that potential and only a few harness it. 
  • Coaching is about learning something new… During my coaching, you will learn simple and yet powerful principles that govern human psychology and generate your whole experience of life. I call them insight principles. This is about finding your own inner compass so that you can navigate your life with less stress and more ease, more clarity, creativity and always find your way home. Your compass will serve you not just during our programme but for the rest of your life. It will help you to know where you are at any moment, never feel lost, respond wisely to challenging circumstances and make the most of your life.

As your coach my role is to be your guide and mentor, assisting you every step of the way helping you turn your stress into success. It is possible!

I believe that everyone CAN DO ANYTHING, with the right support. Whether you are going through a difficult time, recovering from a failed project, relationship breakup, chronic stress, burnout or anxiety or whether you are wishing to progress your career to the next level, develop harmonious partnerships with your colleagues or boss, wanting to become a better manager and leader or even start your own business … coaching can help unlock your resilience, resourcefulness, energy and creativity and provide the support that can last a very long way.

You may feel coaching is not for you. But sometimes, it is just what you need! Talking about it cannot give you a real taste of what it really is. It is like talking about Paris versus jumping on Euro Star and experiencing the city for yourself. To know if coaching is for you – you ‘have to go to Paris’ and see it for yourself!

My clients say: coaching is invaluable and life-changing!  Why did I wait so long?!

Don’t wait any longer. Drop me a message or call. And … to tell the truth … everyone can benefit from coaching!

Have a lovely day!
