in a nutshell

“As a lotus flower is born in water, grows in water and rises out of water to stand above it unsoiled, so I, born in the world, raised in the world having overcome the world, live unsoiled by the world”

– Buddha

What is Coaching?

The ICF says ‘Coaching is partnering with a client in a thought-provoking and creative process that inspires them to maximize their potential.’

We are all leaders. For one, we lead our life. We are actors in every moment, we either consciously or unconsciously choose to lead, co-lead, follow a flow or bob about aimlessly. And any decision we take is the right one, once we take ownership of it.
So it is useful and helpful to know which values and visions we hold dear to help us in our decision-making.

I work with the co-active model designed by the Coaches Training Institute, whom I trained with and am certified by. We hold the belief that we already have all the resources to guide and grow us within, and in coaching we uncover them, see what is available, how to activate what is useful and quieten what does not serve.

In my practice, I focus on the whole person, mind, heart, body and soul; using ‘WHO I AM at my unique and strong core’ to move into transformative ACTION.

They say that ‘our biggest limitations are the ones we set ourselves’; and, yes, we have the ways to pinpoint them and the power to break free from them…
To get there in coaching we use a diversity of tools and techniques. Mostly you will be invited to identify your thoughts, feelings and values through powerful and provocative questions that have the very aim to upset your routined way of thinking and open up new paths and perspectives for you to grow into. We also use quite funky and creative visualizations and even quiet meditations to go deep into your core self. The grander the range, the vaster our horizon.

I work with people who are eager to activate personal transformation, and I will hold you accountable to that. I will challenge you to fly high.
