My framework and approach
We will work as a team in a relaxed yet structured process and with a sense of curiosity at identifying what it is you truly want to achieve. I approach every coaching session as a unique and fresh invitation for both you and I to learn and grow and to come away changed from the experience. As a member of Queensland Counsellors Association (QCA) I adhere to an important Ethical code of practice.
You will be supported and challenged in many of the same ways that you would by a traditional coach. A clear guiding framework will help us refine and clarify your goal. We will identify and agree to concrete steps that you are held accountable to with the aim of seeing measurable improvements on your way to achieving your final coaching goal.
As an integral coach
As an integral coach, I am committed to all of the above as best practices. In addition I hold myself, my coachee, and the coaching relationship to the following standards that are aligned with my values; Integrity, Presence, Connection, and Playfulness. These are what I strive to embody, and to call forth in our work together. I stand firm in the certainty that while you may not always feel it, you have within you an unshakable foundation of being and presence and the full capacity and creativity to realise your goals and inevitably become what your deepest self hungers for.
Beyond naming what you think 'should' be your goal, I will attune to how you and I are showing up in our head, heart, and gut during our sessions. We will explore from what vantage point does your goal 'reach out from'? From your mind? (often recognisable as "shoulds"), from your heart? or from your gut?
From what shape of mind do you make meaning of your circumstances, of your self, of your goal? What stands in your way of achieving it, and why does it matter so deeply that you realise it?
You will be supported and challenged to identify not just what you need to do, but who you need to become to realise your goal.
