What is coaching?
Coaching is a process that helps you see clearly where you are today and find ways to move forward towards your goals by focusing on the ‘here and now’. It is driven by the belief that people always have the answer to their own problems but that they need a facilitator to help them find their own answer.
Counselling and coaching often overlap, especially with the development of shorter-term and more focused therapies such as Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT). Both will help you create a personal and professional life and relationships you feel better about; however, a coach will neither help you deal with your mental health or issues which are too emotional nor explore your past experience.
Like in therapy, we would meet for an initial consultation where we review your reasons, concerns and hopes to see what is relevant for you at this time. Then I would send you a programme setting goals, milestones and a number of sessions, which would constitute our contract if you choose to work with me. Coaching is active, solution-focused and pragmatic, which means we allocate you enough time in-between sessions to practice and reflect by doing some homework. At each session we review what has been experienced and learnt before moving forward. After the ending session, I send you a report of the whole process highlighting your achievements as well as your possible areas of improvement.
