Coaching

Or as I prefer to call it ‘Venturing’, is a process. It is your process.

Each session lasts an hour. It is your hour.  

My role is to hold the space and the process.

Your role is to arrive and to begin.

Where you begin is up to you. You may bring a specific issue. You may not know where to begin. You might feel a desire for things to be different and not see how they can be. Perhaps you want to clarify your current situation. 

Venturing is a journey that begins where you are. Sometimes the way will be clear, other times not. We will explore the terrain. We will plot a course and navigate by the stars when necessary. Chances are the sights we see will be sometimes familiar, sometimes shocking.  Travelling is sometimes enlivening and sometimes tiring. The terrain changes. We will cross wide, open spaces and we will arrive at particular, secluded, tender places.  

Venturing is future focused. It is a creative process of exploration, inquiry, centring, reaching, weaving, designing, connecting, re-aligning, arriving and departing.  It is moving towards a horizon of opportunity and possibility. 

ICF defines coaching as ‘partnering with clients in a thought-provoking and creative process that inspires them to maximize their personal and professional potential.’

On our journey, you will create your own definitions.

You will lead the way. I will be beside you, carrying the water.
