Coaching is a process between the coach and client where the coach helps the client to explore and discover more about themselves, their vision for their life and/or work and how to achieve it. Coaching helps you to see more clearly:
What is Coaching?
The coach's role is to create and hold a safe and yet open space to allow the client to speak freely, to truly be themselves and to feel ok to take risks if they wish to. The coaching I practice is person-centred, which means that I believe that you, the client, already have the wisdom and resources you need - my job is to help you to connect with that inner wisdom and to develop and channel your resources to move towards your vision.
Is Coaching the same as therapy?
Although there are some overlaps, coaching is not the same as therapy. Whereas therapy/counselling focuses on healing past events that continue to impact on the present, coaching is more present and future-focused.
What is Mindful Coaching?
Mindfulness brings you awareness of how you are in this moment. Coaching helps you to identify how and where you'd like to be in the future. Mindful Coaching is a powerful combination that allows you to fulfill your true potential and live a more meaningful and satisfying life.
As an experienced mindfulness teacher and practitioner, I bring the qualities of presence, kindness and awareness to how I coach. Both coaching and mindfulness have huge potential for developing your inner resources and resilience, and helping to see with greater clarity. I may introduce mindfulness techniques and practices into the coaching sessions, but only if you, the client, feel that they would be helpful to you.
Who is Coaching for?
Coaching is beneficial for anybody who wants to grow and develop. It is, however, particularly helpful if you:
How long are the sessions?
Sessions are typically about an hour long and take place once a fortnight or once a week, with the client often doing some exercises or explorations or tasks between sessions. The number of sessions varies, often being agreed in advance, although the client always has the option of ending the process whenever they like.
How do I book a session?
If you'd like to talk to me first, or are unsure if coaching is for you, then call 087 683 4717 for a free consultation, or you can book directly by phone or e-mail.
Sessions take place at the Novara Centre in Bray, Wednesday mornings and Thursday evenings, and at Oscailt Health Centre, Dublin 4, by arrangement.
