  4. 4. Coaching approach • I work philosophically and practically, experientially, and based on real ‘in the now’ issues. • Client – led – based on the needs of the client (but not pandering to clients comfort zones!) • Facilitative through gentle questioning, providing a ‘mirror’ (a point of reflection) for the client • Enabling clients to realise the patterns and behaviours that can take them out of ‘balance’ • Enabling clients to take a deeper responsibility for themselves in discerning their daily work and living choices. • Capacity building to enable the client to ‘self coach’ to avoid any dependency upon needing a continuous coach – but so that they can become self observant, self aware, insightful, and reflective for themselves – thus enabling the skill of self coaching that they can trust and build confidence in all they do. • Works to connect up seemingly disparate issues that clients are facing to enable congruence, consistency, clarity and focus. • Working on life, work, career, and personal/health/emotional issues. • Works using the physical body as a ‘marker’ for clients to gain an awareness and understanding of how they are feeling/reacting or dealing with any given situation or challenge they are facing. • Occasionally giving guidance on where to network, source further information or support for issues outside of the coaching intervention. • Ongoing process reviews (during and after any coaching intervention) to ensure the client is tackling the issues they need, in a way that works for them. • Ensuring my own personal quality of well being and integrity so as to allow the client a clear, steady and confidential ‘space’ to work through their issues. - 4-
