What is coaching?

Coaching is about helping you achieve whatever you want in your life and at your work. It’s a relationship that involves development of skills and awareness and improvement of performance. Coaching is about getting the very best out of someone and enabling them to make decisions that will improve their life.

Coaching is about RESULTS!

Coaching is different to psychology, counseling or therapy. The big difference between coaching and these professions is that coaching doesn’t claim to have the answers. A therapist or councillor will look at the past to find solutions, a coach is not concerned with the past, but will use resources from the past when working exclusively with the present and the future. Coaching increases motivation and helps you discover your full potential. The skills and the tools that coaching uses are to help you find the answers and bring them to the surface to get the energy to make that a positive action.
