Coaching approach

Supporting my clients to rebuild and renew their lives after a serious health issue includes dealing effectively with the emotional impact, navigating the many changes, creating a ‘new normality’, and reclaiming meaning and purpose. My style of coaching is relational, insightful, and supportive with gentle challenge. Throughout our work, there is a focus on your goals and moving towards them so every conversation has a purpose. I believe in enabling you to learn for yourself and your ability to do that, and partner with you in that process. Clients have realised they can figure out what works for them, and how empowering that realisation and ability is. I listen to your story and reflect what I hear, notice and what’s missing. Clients have said they were able to be open, felt heard, and that my insights, observations and questions led to powerful learning and the changes they wanted.
