“I cannot teach anybody anything, I can only make them think … by asking a series of skilful questions to stimulate learning for themselves” Socrates, 5th Century BC

Coaching is a non-therapeutic partnership that engages people, in a thought-provoking and creative process, using evidence-based principles and tools including active listening, clean questioning, challenge and feedback.

It does not prevent, cure, or treat any mental disorder or medical condition but will explore and identify an individual’s or group’s different influences, dynamics, obstacles and drivers including work / professional life, health, behaviours, experiences, relationships, education, personal and social life. The aim is to recognise strengths and assets that provide robust foundations, identify the barriers and solutions to remove obstacles and move forward.

All interventions are completely client led and ‘owned’, the answer lies within the client(s) and realisation is reached through incisive and probing questions. People report many benefits to engaging in coaching sessions or developing a coaching culture, within the workplace.
