Coaching approach

As a chartered psychologist Darren uses a holistic approach to coaching which integrates methods from the various strands of psychology. This would typically begin with some form of assessment, gained through either 360 degree feedback or from a range of psychometric instruments which include personality assessment and profiling using Myers Briggs (Steps 1 and 2), the Hogan series (Motives and Values/Personality and Development) as well as other personality measures. A key aspect of the coaching is to clearly specify the goal for the coaching, which is business relevant and integrated into discussion and sponsorship with line management. Darren has worked with clients across sectors, enabling clients to increase confidence and performance using different methods and approaches. He specialises in delivering bespoke client centred coaching.
