Coaching Methodology

The aim of Coaching is to achieve future focussed goals. For the client this means that coaching is an enabling and motivational process whilst also being open to new strategies for change. The coaching process should be realistic and is often challenging. A coach will act as a sound board, helping and guiding the client towards his/her desired goal(s).

The important point is in realistic goal setting and achievable tasks towards reaching desired goals so that over time, there is an increase in motivation levels, as step by step a client gets closer to his/her achievement and confidence grows.
