My Approach

An effective thinking partnership means you gain personal insights and the agency to act on them

The difference between who you are and who you want to be is what you do.


A flexible approach

Coaching is a purposeful conversation between two people where one of them is doing a lot of thinking

Each client’s situation and motivation is unique. We start by ascertaining what you want to gain from coaching. The end you seek, what success will look like and how you will know when you’ve got there. This informs the process.   I am drawn to neuroscience with the emphasis on opening up people’s imagination as to the ideal state for themselves and their organisation. The neuroscience approach is championed by Richard Boyatzis in his definitive text ‘Helping People Change’. By activating people’s positive emotions and neural networks they gain belief, confidence and commitment to their vision.   I combine neuroscience with carefully chosen techniques timed in accordance with your progress. For example, Barrett Values is an excellent tool for anchoring personal values.   I also rate solution focussed coaching. This draws out your strengths based on previous success and achievement. This technique guides you to harness your signature strengths. We look for clues for the future in what’s worked before, what has brought you joy, satisfaction and a feeling you are living your true values – the ideal self not the ought self. Chairwork [aka gestalt technique] is invaluable to address the society of selves in all of us.  By that I mean the little voices that can sometimes help and sometimes hinder. We all feel like impostors at some point or another Whenever we tackle something new, we’re an impostor, so the syndrome is perfectly natural. Chairwork allows us to figure out the trigger, origin and purpose of the voices. Once we understand them, we have a better chance of controlling their volume and input. It may sound like mumbo-jumbo, but trust me, it drives self-awareness to beneficial new levels. In summary, my approach is a blend based on the rhythm and outcomes of our sessions.
