Coaching approach

My coaching style is based on psychological approaches to meet client needs. The basis of my approach is really listening and hearing the client and their needs, and using of helpful, simple questions that assist the client to move forward. I may draw on a range of approaches including cognitive behavioural, gestalt, psychodynamic, humanistic, clean language and a range of other tools and approaches if these are helpful to where the client is and what is important to them. I use my intuitive approach to work in an engaging yet challenging way. I have a direct ‘non-nonsense approach’ combined with a relaxed and informal style which focuses on positive outcomes for the client.
