The Art of Coaching
Being able to recognise what works best for each individual and switching my style to suit YOU, finding the right approach, questions, words, tools and the right key to unlock your potential, makes coaching a magical art.
What is Integral Coaching?
I am an Integral Coach.
“Integral” means inclusive of everything (mind, heart, body, spirit), entire, complete, whole.
So, at its deepest root, integral coaching refers to a way of coaching that is whole, complete, and integrated.
I approach every client with an empty mind, loving heart, genuine kindness, compassion and curiosity.
What does my coaching style look like?
My coaching style is specific, tailored, and crafted for each person.
Every human being is unique and has a special way of being and interpreting life and this is what we are trying to unpack and build awareness on during our coaching journey together.
I make my clients feel seen, heard, respected, and comfortable enough to be themselves and share the unique qualities that only they embody.
When this occurs, they start to flourish and collaborate with life, and transformation happens.
My approach is transformation and outcomes oriented.
Who can contact me?
The integral coaching approach allows me to be able to coach any human being regardless of the problem or difficulty that brought them to coaching and enables me to get underneath the coaching topic.
I am coaching the person, not the problem.
And that’s the beauty and power of integral coaching.
My areas of expertise?

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
I am here to support you.
WHAT IS COACHING? WHAT IS IT NOT?
Coaching is a partnership between a coach and a coachee which builds the coachee’s ability to observe and select appropriate actions in ways that maximize their personal and professional potential. Coaching is a symbiotic relationship and mutually beneficial interaction.
Coaching is not consulting, therapy, mentoring.
A therapist can help you with mental health difficulties, diagnosis and assessment. A therapist deals mostly with the past, major trauma and how you can overcome mental health difficulties. Coaching focuses on the future. Therapists focus on the past.
A mentor is like a trusted advisor on how to make progress and become more successful in the same area as the mentor’s.
A consultant is a subject matter expert in charge of managing projects and performing activities on behalf of clients.
The coaching profession lacks regulation and as such it’s very important to work with a coach who is qualified and accredited by the International Coaching Federation (ICF).
WHAT ABOUT CONFIDENTIALITY?
As part of our coaching engagement, we will sign a coaching agreement bound by the principles of confidentiality set forth in the ICF.
As instructed by the ICF Code of Ethics, all information acquired by the coach, be it through assessments, interviews or coaching conversations, will be kept strictly confidential.
This information belongs to the client.
Confidentiality is your right as a client.
WHAT ARE THE KEY COMPONENTS FOR A SUCCESSFUL COACHING ENGAGEMENT?
Our chemistry and your commitment.
Our chemistry contributes significantly to the success of our coach-client engagement. The goal of the free discovery session is for both of us to evaluate our chemistry.
I would explain the chemistry between a coach and client as having trust and comfort. Trust allows for powerful questions, vulnerable topics and difficult conversations. Trust, depth and accountability lead to behavior change.
Your commitment in terms of time, energy and investment is key to have a successful coaching journey together. Commitment to showing up in the sessions and being present and focused. Commitment to invest time and energy in the exercises assigned in between the sessions.
