Coaching approach

Lis's approach to coaching is to use a variety of models and frameworks in her coaching practice. She believes that relying on a strict approach to techniques can be reductionist and lead to a formulaic approach to practice, which can inhibit empathy and the sense of being present for the client. Her preferred style is to utilise a range of approaches, frameworks and techniques/tools, which she feels are appropriate to the client and develop an authentic coaching presence.
