My Coaching Approach

The coaching approach that I take with each client is customized to his/her particular needs. The main model that I use is called Co-Active Coaching. The underlying principle of Co-Active Coaching is that the coachee does not need to be fixed. He/she is complete and perfect as is.

Rather, Coaching of this sort is used to help those who want to achieve certain goals. The process takes you from where you are now to where you want to go.

It is not about the “why” of your situation. It’s about the “what” and the “how”. This is the situation. This is it what you want. How are you going to get what you want? The goal is to help you to help yourself to get anything you want out of life.

Is it time to transition to a new career? Do you want to find your life partner or better the relationship with the one you have? Do you want to get into shape? Do you want to finally get rid of the clutter that’s been filling up your home? Maybe your life feels overwhelming or out of balance. Maybe you don’t know what you want. Are you sick of certain habits you have or you just don’t like certain parts of your life? Maybe you want to incorporate more pleasurable things into your everyday life. These are all examples of real issues that I have encountered and helped many people with. As your coach, I can help you with any area of your life. This is all about your personal development.

I combine Co-Active coaching with a communications tool called Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP). I also use personality and behavioral assessment tools (Meyers Briggs Type Indicator MBTI, Keirsey Temperament Sorter KTS-II) to help you gain insight into your motivation for doing certain things and wanting certain things. These tools assess your hard-wired preferences.

We all behave a certain way but our natural preferences are inborn. These tools will allow you to find out and understand your natural personality type and your natural inclinations. They’ll help you to understand what makes other people tick, what enables you to get along with certain people and not others, and what you can do to better relationships with those who are a different “type”.
