Coaching approach

I believe the client is the expert when it comes to themselves, their life, their business etc and they will know what is right for them. Therefore my role is to help them to look at themselves, their team, their business, or whatever they need to, from different angles and different perspectives which will help to find new ways of thinking and behaving that will suit them. This will sometimes involve challenging long held assumptions and beliefs that may have served them well in the past. I provide a relaxed and safe place for these to be explored. I am highly flexible and adaptable when working with groups or individuals. I believe everyone is individual and that one size does not fit all. I pay close attention to each individual and tailor how I work to ensure that they get the best from each session. It can be serious stuff but we'll have a laugh too sometimes!
