What is professional coaching?

According to the International Coaching Federation, coaching is defined as:

'Partnering with clients in a thought-provoking and creative process that inspires them to maximise their professional and personal potential.'


It is client driven, and focuses on setting goals, creating outcomes and managing personal change.

What is the Coach's Role?

  • Discover, clarify and align with what clients want to achieve

  • Encourage client self-discovery

  • Elicit client generated solutions and strategies

  • Hold the client responsible and accountable

Benefits & Outcomes of Coaching

  • Greater performance and sustained results in targeted areas

  • Strategic & personalised future planning

  • Higher productivity and efficiency

  • Enhanced work/life balance

  • Greater capacity to engage stakeholders at all levels

Coaching, Mentoring & Consulting


I provide my clients with the full suite of support through coaching, mentoring and consulting.

Mentoring is sharing knowledge, skills and life experience to guide another towards reaching their full potential; it’s a journey of shared discovery

Consulting provides, in a professional manner, expert advice that a client lacks or provides support that a client is unable to fulfil.

I prioritise coaching as this approach leads to greater self awareness and sustained results for my clients. Nevertheless, there are times I also draw upon different approaches, such as mentoring or consulting. Each has their place and it largely depends on my client and their personal needs.
