Coaching is a way to work with a person or a group who is at a turning point or a crossroads and wants to reflect and understand how to move forward in an optimal way.  At this crossroads, what is at stake differs from one person to another. Whereas some people have a clear idea why they want to start coaching and which benefits they are hoping to get out of being coached, for instance they might know that they need to work on their collaborative skills; others might be less clear and even though they have a feeling that coaching could help them move forward, they need guidance in identifying where and how they can initiate change. There are many different factors that can block us from moving forwards; it can be the way we think, or interact with others or it might be because we don’t have a clear sense of purpose or haven’t decided the direction we want to move in. When the coaching objectives are less clearly-defined, the intitial work will be to identify where and in what way someone can move forward fluidly.

My approach draws from systemic coaching, Jungian psychology and diverse coaching tools, including the MBTI or art therapy to work with people in the way that best suits their needs and is the most conducive to achieving their objectives, that can range from precise ones like learning how to motivate others, active listening and giving feedback to broader ones such as finding meaning, building confidence or learning to look at things with a new perspective.

  • Systemic Coaching entails working with an individual or group to consider their actions and ideas from the perspective of the whole system they are in. It is when the thinking about the “ecology” of the overall system is considered.
  • Jungian analysis is a process of examining and understanding the personality and one self. It is based on undestanding the inner world of the person and how someone can become more whole.

I base my work on the following values:

  • 1. Taking the time to understand the objectives of the individual or group and being tuned into how these objectives may evolve
  • 2. Being accountable to the person, being responsive and giving continuous feedback on the process
  • 3. Confidentiality.
  • 4. Commitment to the International Coach Federation’s (ICF) Code of deontology and ethics and the CMAP’s  Code of deontology for Euroepan mediators

Through group coaching, I work with groups to develop a deeper awareness of the impact that diversity has on collaboration and performance and to learn to leverage this diversity.
