What is Transformational Coaching?
Transformational Coaching is a hugely inspiring process, focusing on the client fully embracing the challenges they face, that may possibly be causing them to be unhappy, unfulfilled or filled with discontent. It makes way for what is desired by the client and creates a ‘shift’ in their thinking, moving towards expansive thought and an ability to strengthen and expand their capacity to truly manifest the desired results.
Clients are able to realise and understand their own qualities in a guided self- actualisation, enabling them to get to know themselves more deeply to become their true, authentic self and maximise their full potential.
I have found that the difference between Transformational Coaching and other models of coaching is that it really facilitates growth and change on a more profound level for the individual, as it draws on the best of all coaching models and is suitable for a wide variety of purposes.
The coaching process itself is framed around a ‘conversation‘ with your coach and is centred around what is happening now and in the future, bridging the gap between where you are now and where you would like to be. It proactively helps people to make positive transformations in their personal lives, careers, relationships, businesses or in organisations.
It raises the awareness of the client with powerful questioning techniques, assists in creating practical action plans, tools, techniques and strategies for ongoing support. It is far more effective than if you worked alone. It is about maximising your performance and achievement and as your coach I look to encourage your success.
I will help you gain a greater awareness of yourself, identifying your key values and explore any limiting beliefs you may hold, helping you to move beyond them in order for you to be successful.
I do not tell my clients what to do or give advice. I respect my clients as the expert on his or her life and believe every client has the resources within them to succeed.
Coaching does not seek to resolve any underlying psychological problems and is profoundly different from consulting, mentoring, advice, therapy or counselling. Transformational Coaching is client led, positive, encouraging, non-judgemental and outcome focused. The partnership between coach and client is based on honesty, trust, confidentiality and authenticity.
I will challenge you, encourage and support you throughout, with the aim of empowering you to succeed in whatever it is you want to do with your life.

What is NLP
NLP or Neuro-Linguistic Programming encompasses the three most influential components involved in producing human experience:
1. Neurology – the way in which we think & process our thoughts,
2. Language – the language patterns we use,
3. Programming – our behaviours & whether these are affecting us positively or negatively as individuals,
The neurological system regulates how our bodies function, language determines how we interface and communicate with other people and our programming determines the kinds of models of the world we create.
Neuro-Linguistic Programming describes the dynamics between mind (neuro), language (linguistic) and how their interplay affects our body and behaviour (programming).
We can use the methods and models in NLP to re-define how we think, speak and ultimately behave for more authentic, positive outcomes.
What are the benefits of NLP
NLP is used widely used to facilitate powerful, quick and long-lasting change in both individuals and organisations.
It enables you to positively manage your reactions/responses to people and events around you. It gives you more conscious choice over what you do and the way you act, increasing your ability to reach your goals and objectives.
see life differently = experience life differently
NLP techniques are based on the concept that you already have all the internal resources and capabilities you need to effect change in your life and the lives of those around you. These techniques give you the ability to choose an emotional or mental state and hold it – for as long as you want, whenever you want.
Typically, many people have difficulty maintaining a focused state of concentration, confidence, enthusiasm, inspiration, motivation, influence, or learning. NLP techniques allow you to automatically access any state you choose, and to be flexible enough to achieve the desired result.
Benefits of NLP enable you to:
• Set your outcome (define precisely what you want).
• Take action to achieve your outcome.
• Evaluate the changes produced by your actions.
• Change your action plan if necessary to achieve better results.
It can be used to assist with a variety of issues including, anxiety & stress, self-esteem, illness, pain, confidence, fears and phobias, personal change, business, parenting, presentation skills, relationships and sport.
NLP is not psychotherapy, psychology, psychoanalysis, counselling, hypnotherapy or therapy and should not be confused with these alternative methods.
