If you are an executive, manager, business owner or director, there will be times when you need to talk to an expert about an issue or decision but no-one in your network seems appropriate. You want an objective view, expertise and confidentiality. That’s where I come in.
The right coaching conversations can create insights and skill development that lead to significant improvement in a person’s career and business. As we explore your working life, we discover and remove the factors that are sabotaging your success, and introduce skills that will boost your achievement and satisfaction. My coaching process helps you become more capable, more decisive, more courageous and passionate and better at spotting and creating opportunities.
Coaching Psychology can help solve your current workplace and personal dilemmas and help you reach your longer term business, career and life goals. The coaching industry is unregulated, and as such corporate coaches may have a variety of academic qualifications and experience. Around five percent of coaches are psychologists. The advantages of psychologist as coach are:
1. Tertiary level training in theoretically-grounded approaches and comprehensive training in understanding human behaviour
2. Training in issues that require significant cognitive or emotional development
3. A solid grounding in recognising and referring clinical issues
4. We practice according to a strict ethical code and are required to regularly attend professional development sessions to update our knowledge.
Coaching Psychology is an applied positive psychology, which draws on established psychological approaches. It is the most effective and in-depth way an individual can learn new skills, knowledge and awareness, and change perspective through expert guidance and feedback.
Are you feeling overwhelmed by the demands of your job?
Do you have some bad habits at work that need changing?
Are you new to leadership and need some guidance?
Or cant decide on an important career move?
Do you feel like an imposter in your role?
Do you need help brainstorming a decision?
Or are you successful but just not satisfied?
Or maybe you are just not motivated and dont know how to get out of the rut?
There are a lot of people who are highly successful yet unhappy and unsatisfied. These are the perfectionists, the obsessive-compulsives, those who don’t feel good enough, those who sabotage their own happiness. These habits are learnt, and change and improvement is possible.
