Is Coaching suitable for everyone?

Coaching is NOT suitable for people who do not want REAL change, who have been forced by a third party to commence with coaching, or has some psychological problem. In this case, for best results, I would suggest a Psychologist who is also a Coach to deal with the inherent situation first and then with the coaching.

Why does Coaching Work?

Coaching brings out the best in people. People are at their best when they get acknowledged for who and what they are. When they get the opportunity and freedom to express themselves fully, when their greater potential is revealed, when they can claim their power, and build their new realities as a result of positive change.

The Coaching Position is critical to good coaching. It is a position that is neutral, non-judgmental, with professional detachment, free of emotional entanglement, ego or personal bias.

  1. Support you to clearly identify and define your goals and coach you till your goals are realistic, specific, defined, measurale and achievable.

Note: Coaches use their skills (objective listening, skillful questioning, rapport building, creative thinking, etc.) and a toolbox of exercises and processes to help you help themselves.
