Personal Coaching

Working with one´s coach.

There are many reasons for working one-on-one with a coach :

  • To get out more easily of a difficult moment, such as a career transition, a creative block or difficulties at work,
  • To help manage time and organisation in order to gain personal efficiencies,
  • To overcome fears or undermining beliefs which spoil the enjoyment of daily life,
  • To better balance work and family life,
  • To help redirect one’s life towards a more rewarding activity or position,
  • For objective support in difficult moments when preparing an exam,
  • For people returning to the work force after some time out,

Which challenge will you address ?

Whatever be your goal you can be sure to move faster towards that goal with a good professional coach. You will enjoy the unconditional support of your own personal Coach.

A good coach is:

  • Better than a friend because the coach works along you for what YOU want
    • On sensitive or key issues, a friend may hesitate to ask you to face-up to the matter at hand… or that friend may be influenced by his/her own judgement of your situation.


  • An objective observer who will support or challenge you when required.
    • All clients agree that they accomplish more when working with a demanding coach like me.


  • A professional in the art of listening and asking questions.
    • Good coaches have received specialised and supervised professional training.


  • A safe person to share plans and secrets with.
    • A good coach is bound by a written confidentiality agreement.


  • Someone who knows how to recognize and acknowledge your qualities and your achievements.
    • We all are our worst enemy when it comes to evaluating how we perform.


  • Someone who will demand action and progress from you.
    • Sympathy and empathy are OK, but generally, it is action that generates progress.
    • The regular sessions help you stay on top of your plans, clear about your challenges and active in your development.
