Coaching approach

My approach combines my knowledge as a leader, adviser, and learning and development professional, with a caring and ethical approach, a calm and focused presence, excellent listening and analytical skills, the ability to provide supportive and constructive challenge and feedback, and a willingness to probe beneath the surface. All my work is built on core values. My coaching is flexible and always tailored to the individual situation. I draw on broad expertise including the ICF accredited Advanced Practitioner Diploma of the AoEC, and techniques drawn from strengths-based coaching, Transactional Analysis, NLP, Cognitive Behavioural coaching, and Gestalt. I am happy to work on specific outcomes and business performance, but find a more open-ended approach can be very effective in deepening insight, bringing to view habits and patterns, shifting thinking and enabling lasting change.
