- Coaching is a collaborative partnership where the client is the expert in their life and the Coach is the expert in the coaching process.
- In the coaching session the client will feel empowered, challenged, motivated, encouraged and supported.

Where does Coaching originate?
- In 1980s it was realised by therapists that there were many life situations that embraced more than one issue and needed a wider view and the coaching profession was born.
- Its growth has come almost totally from very satisfied customers who have achieved success and personal fulfilment.
- Many say that coaching has helped them to be more successful and to be their best. In other words, the results have created the phenomenal worldwide demand that now exists.
What Personal Coaching is not?
Personal Coaching does not explore the past. It looks at what is happening right now in the client’s life and how the client can move forward.
Is Personal Coaching for me?
Anyone can have a personal coach (managers, entrepreneurs, individuals, athletes) supporting and challenging the client through their progress towards a defined goal / outcome. The goal / outcome may relate to career, confidence, stress, relationships, health, finances, etc.
The Coach will raise awareness if she/he feels that personal coaching is not the right intervention at that point in time for the client.

The best investment you will ever make is the one in your personal growth. It is a positive and empowering experience, therefore it has a long lasting positive effect on your Life, as oppose to materialistic things (i.e. a new gadget) that are short-lived as we adapt to them and soon we want something new.
