What is Coaching?
Coaching is future and action focused.
It works at your pace and to your agenda, at all times. It can take place face to face, on the telephone or over Skype, depending on your preference and location.
Coaching helps you move from where you are now to where you want to be.
Coaching ... isn’t:
Therapy, which looks to the client’s past in order to uncover what is stopping them from moving forward.
Counselling, which primarily listens to the concerns and anxieties of the client around what has happened to them.
Mentoring, which involves sharing experience and knowledge with the client on a particular subject.
Consulting, which involves looking to diagnose the problem a client is facing and recommending solutions and providing advice.
Coaching ... is:
A partnership between a client and a coach, where the client is the expert in their life and the coach is the expert in the coaching process.
A process that raises a client’s awareness of themselves and the situation they are in and identifies the most effective way for them to achieve their goals.
Often achieving something is simply about recognising what we want, planning how we are going to get there and getting on with it.
However, sometimes, as much as we might want something there’s ‘stuff’ going on underneath holding us back, sabotaging us.
