My work has been particularly rewarding when it has been with marginalised people.

Having overcome a major low point 16 years ago and going from strength to strength since, the opportunity to now be a catalyst for people with tough experiences in believing in themselves and their capabilities is the best possible reward.

In their simplest form, coaching sessions are one to one conversations. However, quite a lot can transpire over these conversations. Some people approach them thinking that they will get advice from an ‘expert’, not realising that they themselves are the experts in what’s right for them. This is the essence of coaching and it’s such a powerful thing.

Coaching Style
Coaching is certainly a two way relationship and because it’s truly ‘person centred’ I have been delighted to watch people get to ‘light bulb’ moments or realise that they have so much more going for them than they thought. Over the years I have also been surprised by the amount I have learnt from my coachees.

This, together with what several have reported as a major shift of thought and behaviour after a relatively short time, has made it the most rewarding of any job that I have ever had.

Coaching allows people to consider the following:
- Examining self-awareness and mindset
- Recognising their strengths, resilience and confidence
- Realising what their limiting self-beliefs are, where these come from and what it means to start shedding these received beliefs
- Gaining clarity of what is right for them and not what others’ expectations are of them The list can go further as people sometimes look at very specific aspects in their lives.
