Be like a bird for a moment perched on a frail branch, though he feels it bend, yet he sings his song knowing that he has wings.      

Victor Hugo

 

The tools of Co-Active coaching I use in my practice are unbeaten in life’s & businesses around the world. It’s a methodology, a skill set that balances self-awareness, allows to take courageous actions, creates an environment where you can be deeply motivated, fulfilled, connected and successful in what matters to you most. After the first couple of sessions, you will already feel more alive, more confident and start turning plans into action.

The outcome you will gain:

  • Positive perspectives on challenges

  • Enhance decision-making skills

  • Greater communications

  • Self-management tools

  • Improvement in productivity

  • Personal transformation

And, the list does not end there.

I recommend 2-3 sessions a month for 45 min. each. It’s required to commit to working together for at least 4 to 6 months to be able to see the results. Coaching is available: face to face in London or over the phone/skype what a lot of my clients found convenient. You don’t spend time traveling and have a conversation in your own comfortable environment. The first one (30 min) is complimentary and may be scheduled in advance.

The differences between coaching and therapy:

Coaching

Therapy

Views both parties as naturally creative, resourceful and whole. Does not diagnose or treat.

More apt to view clients from a medical model. Diagnoses and treats.

Emphasis on present and future.

Emphasis on past and present.

Trained to work with functioning clients.

Trained to work with major mental illness.

Co-Active model. Client and Coach are on the same level.

Therapist is the “expert.”

Focus on evolving and manifesting potential.

Focus on healing and understanding.

Action, solution and being oriented.

Insight and problem oriented.

Explore actions and behaviors that manifest high self-esteem.

Explore genesis of behaviors that create low self-esteem.

Coach ask: “What’s next/what now?”

Therapist ask: “Why and from where?”

Accountability and “homework” between sessions held as important.

Accountability less commonly expected.

Contact between sessions for accountability and “wins” expected.

Contact between sessions for crisis and difficulties only.
