We are all doing our best to get through life, to find what ‘success’ means to us, to feel that we have a purpose or contribution to make.
To spend time with a Coach is to be given the gift of time and space with yourself – a good coach will never tell you what you should do, but will work with you to help you understand what your reality is, and where you are limiting yourself or being unrealistic.
We have all had those moments when spending time with someone else – where we can see things they are somehow blind to, where they seem to be unconsciously limiting themselves, or trapped by fears about what the future might hold.
A Coach creates and moderates the space where you can be fully honest with yourself – about any hopes, fears or uncertainties you may have (sometimes hidden beneath the surface). We help you see where you are limiting yourself and where you are defined by stories that others have told you about yourself. We observe, question and offer feedback – always without judgement – and help you arrive at a new place where you have greater insight about yourself, others, and who or what you want to be.
The client is always the one who initiates any change, resolves any issues or sets any goals – the coaches may offer some insight as to how such progress can be made, point to any external tools that could be helpful, or co-form a specific challenge with the client.

- Improved performance or focus
