“He who knows others is learned, he who knows himself is wise” – Lao Tzu tao te Ching
Coaching facilitates change. At some point in our lives, we all inevitably experience a ‘stuckness’. From a developmental perspective, we can understand human development as levels of consciousness (awareness) that we move through.
We become stuck when we get caught in unconscious repeated patterns of behaviour that prevent us from moving forward. These patterns may be emotional, thinking habits, or impulsive behaviours. We can get stuck personally and/or in our relationships. Every single person has their own struggle that causes pain and suffering: it’s known as the human condition.
As a Certified Stages Coach, a Deep Coach Practitioner, a Co-Active Coach and a Certified Enneagram Institute Teacher, I have various models to draw on to increase your self-awareness. With these models, we can together explore your unique patterns and how you are currently approaching your unique challenge. By increasing your self-awareness of your habitual patterns, we can identify new “muscles” that you need to develop to move beyond your current constricted situation.
Under my guidance, we would jointly establish tailored practices to fit your personal profile. I will support you to develop new capacities that will enable you to “get out of your box” and to become more aligned with your true potential.
Coaching has a future orientation and is outcomes-based. Often, our behavioural patterns are a result of a situation that we experienced at an earlier developmental stage of our life. The Stages Model is so effective here as it allows me to identify the spot in your developmental trajectory when this occurred thereby making my interventions more efficient. There is no need to spend hours delving into your past.
My clients are all 30+ years old and appreciate a holistic and compassionate approach to understanding themselves. They recognize that their own patterns may be a factor in their difficulty in moving forward and they are curious to uncover more of their potential.
I am personally passionate about empowerment through self-knowledge. Once you know yourself at a deeper level you can continue to build on this foundation throughout your life.
