Coaching approach

My approach is very person centred. I strongly believe in coaching the person, not the problem and use evidence based psychological tools and models to inform my coaching practice, keeping a positive psychology perspective on everything I do. This means that while my client may be focused on the task, I step back , allowing my client to gain the space and perspective to see the bigger picture. I am flexible in my approach, adapting and responding to the client's needs overall and at any specific moment. My coaching style has been described as calm, yet challenging.
