Coaching Psychology

I provide coaching either as part of organisational development or on a free-standing basis. The agenda is negotiated to suit individual needs and timescales. Ways of working include telephone meetings and email

I have coached thousands of men and women about career, executive and business development. They have come from very diverse walks in life and benefited in a variety of ways.

Doing new things, or familiar things differently

The heart of coaching lies in stimulating the person to view and examine their behaviour in relation to their own intentions. And in enabling them to make fine grain distinctions with sufficient understanding that they find ways to direct themselves courageously in the face of challenges and setbacks.

I act as a partner for clients to change their behaviour. They achieve this through

1. commitment to personal excellence,

2. competency profiling,

3. guided self-assessment, and

4. self-observation.

Quality, reliable feedback

My approach to coaching emphasises self-observation. But psychometrics also offer a powerful form of feedback and can operate as a catalyst for development through benchmarking. Feedback concentrates on meaningful observations, through the CRIMSON method: Constructive, Relevant, Informative, Manageable, Specific, Open and Non-judgmental.

I offer carefully-chosen, well-validated tools to help clients to appreciate their strengths, current boundaries and, where appropriate, and areas of potential fulfilment.

I am licensed to use a host of instruments including the MBTI, FIRO, OPQ , HBDI, TMI and Relationship Q As I am independent of the publishers, I select those that best fit the needs or particular individuals and their organisations.
