Techniques and tools
I prefer to tailor therapeutic coaching for each individual, one size doesn’t fit all. Some people need more goal focused coaching and some prefer more therapeutic approaches.
I can use a variety of techniques, methods and tools to suit my client (and only if they wish to), including GROW coaching model, Humanistic / Cognitive Behavioural approaches, counselling , transactional analysis, existentialism, Cognitive Behavioural therapy techniques, Hypnotherapy, Neuro linguistic programming, Relaxation, visualisation techniques, Personality/temperament testing, dream analysis, Inspirational tools, meditation and mindfulness, and journals where necessary.
