My Purpose in Coaching
My journey as a coach has opened my eyes to the unbelievable complexity that we human beings are. What we normally see of others as we interact with them is generally not at all what is happening behind the scenes, making up hidden complexity mostly causing a lot of stress, unhappiness and “stuck”-ness. Hence, my purpose in coaching is for you to find the uncomplicated, joyful simplicity of the unique, special you.
The unique, special me is a person that loves nature, reading and learning. I am interested in health and the factors that impact our health positively and negatively. I like to keep fit and make (almost) every effort to eat healthily. I do not however, enjoy cooking and am fortunate that both my children do! I love playing scrabble and master mind. My favourite books and movies are about crime investigations. I have to confess that I am (slightly) OCD and do insist that everything has a place and it should be on its place. I absolutely love efficiency. Waste in any form is always a place for improvement. I truly believe that there is always a way for things to work out – sometimes is just takes a bit longer to figure it out or to understand the situation.
I am the proud mom of a unique and special daughter and equally unique and special son. As they now become adults themselves, I find that I am also learning so much about me and them, as they venture into the world. The evolution from a mom of younger kids into a mom of adults is a journey in itself which has led me to want to focus my coaching on young people that find themselves stuck and want to learn more about themselves and how to move forward in life.
I studied BSc: Computer Science after leaving school and spent time in the usual IT roles of Developer, Business Analyst and Test Analyst until I found my niche in Project Management. I love designing a project with the project team: creating the work break down structure, figuring out what must be done and in which sequence until there is a perfect plan on paper, ready for execution. On paper, of course, is the only place where a plan is perfect and quite quickly the realities of day to day must be considered and dealt with. The plan doesn’t always work out perfectly but, it always serves it purpose as the north star of the project, the ‘what’ reaching towards ‘why’, the simplicity in the chaos.
About My Practice
I find great alignment between my job and coaching. My greatest joy is to experience with you the a-ha’s of discovery, as you figure out your ‘why’ as well as the ‘what’ that will lead you to realize your true potential. Simply, step-by-step dealing with obstructions such as disempowering rules and beliefs that don’t serve you. Always challenging yourself to become more as you experience success.
I call my coaching business URprofitable – you are profit-able – because I believe that anyone has the ability to be more than they are at any moment in time. It is as simple (and as difficult) to be open to learning about yourself and to believe in yourself.
Besides individual transformational and transactional coaching, I offer couples a package deal whereby the couple may sign up for coaching. The intention is that each partner attends 13 modules of transformation coaching separately whilst discussing the modules with each other with the view to improving their relationship through getting to know each other better.
As a Coach, I provide motivation, support and caring to help you effect the necessary changes to become your best self. One of my greatest gems comes from one of my coachees who said that she felt like she was my only coachee because she felt I was truly invested in her.
