Coaching approach

I work at psychological depth with clients approaching my work with an integrative’ attitude, underpinned with training in Gestalt, Existential, Cognitive-Behavioural, NLP and Solution-Focused approaches. My organisational assignments are with people in transition and often in ‘crisis’ or at an impasse. This might be personal or relational, I am there to facilitate the development of their ‘EQ.’ I supervise experienced HR/L&D professionals as coaches and trainee supervisees who are building their practice. My focus is to help sharpen their ‘use of self’ as instrument, to integrate mind and body and ‘go off piste’ that is, move beyond techniques. In private practice I work with clients who are searching for a sense of meaning and purpose and do this through a philosophical exploration and psychological inquiry.
