Coaching Approach
“I believe in giving people a safe space to explore where they are and where they want to be. Only by taking time to step back and consider what it is you really want from your life can you determine what actions you need to take to effect change. I’ll help you do that and to set realistic, achievable goals and action plans to support you getting there. I won’t give you an easy time and will be challenging but ultimately I will be there to support you all the way.”
