Naturally curious, honouring and non-judgemental, I craft my coaching style according to my clients and my client’s situation. Sometimes, when appropriate, I coach by just asking questions. At other times, I’m an equal conversation contributor with ideas, philosophies and input.To facilitate deeper, more articulate cognitive and experiential self-knowledge, I draw on tools from astrology (character and predictive analysis), yoga (exploring the mind-body-emotion relationship) and adult learning (KOLB, Hudson’s and CCL Leadership Competencies)
At all times, I see my role as being here to facilitate your thinking and learning – encouraging and creating space to allow the emergence of those insights that provide clarity around issues that are important to you – and help you to move forward in the direction of your choice.
