One-on-One Coaching

Many people hear the word coach and they think: oh, you give people advice

Nope, that’s not it at all. On the contrary, I spent countless hours learning NOT to give advice to my clients. 

If you’re confused, let me clarify. 

Coaching, as defined by the ICF (the International Coaching Federation), is about ‘partnering with a client in a thought-provoking and creative process that inspires them to maximise their personal and professional potential’. 

Coaches, ask questions; consultants and advisors offer advice, recommendations, and resources.

Think of it as getting someone who will hold you accountable: a sparring partner with a fresh perspective, who is there to help you get to where you want to be. The role of a certified expert coach is to be honest and transparent, to listen deeply,

Getting a coach means choosing a thinking partner.  

Coaching develops essential skills such as leadership, emotional intelligence, and effective communication, while also boosting self-esteem and confidence, particularly in public speaking and self-presentation.

It promotes stress reduction through better work-life balance and mindfulness techniques, and supports career advancement by mapping out career paths and increasing job satisfaction. Additionally, coaching enhances interpersonal skills and conflict resolution, improving relationships both professionally and personally. For organizations, one-on-one coaching leads to higher employee engagement, talent retention, and fosters a culture of continuous development. Ultimately, coaching creates sustainable, long-term changes that benefit individuals well beyond the coaching relationship.

One-on-one coaching offers a highly personalised approach that tailors sessions to the unique needs and goals of each individual, fostering increased self-awareness and self-reflection. 

Change management

Coaching is geared towards managing the one thing in life we will all experience.


Whether we think we are good at navigating the ups and downs, or we are more sensitive, either way, coaching can help you tap into the sense of inner calm that lies beneath the turbulent waves of life. 

What coaching entails

You come to a coach when you are ready to see results. 

Some say that coaching is to therapy what personal training is to Western medicine.

I love a metaphor, and this feels just right. You don’t go to your doctor to get sculpted abs; you go to the gym and find a personal trainer. 

A coach doesn’t replace a therapist, and while there are parallels and some shared modalities and tools, what I offer is not therapy. 

My clients come to me because they have had enough of the status quo. They are ready, now.

The good news is (and perhaps unlike personal training) a good coach can help a client in profound ways within a 15 or 20-minute session. Imagine what we can do in 50 minutes. 

Accountability, as I mentioned above, is also one of the key reasons people will come to coaching. As you may know from experience, despite wanting something to change in our lives, we often become complacent. We procrastinate and settle for whatever the current situation is.

If you want out of that cycle, I have plenty of tools and resources to share with you in order to make sure that you do move forward, and that you honour your commitment to yourself. 

I remember one of my teachers saying to me: ‘Never leave the sight of a coaching session without an action plan.’

Coaching is all about design, planning and action. 

Depending on where you are at, first, we will dream and scheme, design or imagine the ideal scenario. From that we will start to move towards concrete next steps, the planning phase.

Sometimes, the smallest steps forward are all we need, and with those tiny steps, we build momentum. 

And then we iterate. When we start to action change, we often meet obstacles, resistance, or simply failure: best-laid plans and all that. The point is not to give up but to pivot, even if it is by one degree, as my teacher Martha Beck likes to point out. Move the course of your life by a single degree and imagine where that will get you.


How you approach coaching isn’t dissimilar to how you start with a new sport or a new language. Depending on how fast you want things to move, you will need to be clear on how much time you are willing to invest. When selecting the right coach, ask yourself: am I at ease with this person? Listen to what your mind will answer, but above all, trust your intuition. 


This is my niche, as they say. I coach creative professionals in need of a thinking partner to help them expand their horizons. 

Whether you want to make some headway in your career, navigate the rough waters of change, get over burnout, set boundaries, these are things I can help you with.
