Coaching is an iterative, targeted, interactive process designed to facilitate concrete changes in performance—and bottom-line results. We help clients achieve their goals through powerful conversations that are intended to inspire new thinking, perceptions and behavior that actualize your potential, improve your performance, create focus and directional clarity, support the achievement of your personal and professional goals, and enhance the quality of your life.
The objective is to focus on your potential (your unrealized ability, capacity or possibility) by leveraging your strengths, uncovering what’s in your way, and targeting the areas you are most interested in addressing to help you reach your goals more effectively.
Yes, you can. We’ve seen many clients change in powerful ways. And they’ve likely had ambitions, goals, concerns and challenges that are similar to yours. Coaching can be the catalyst to profoundly shift the trajectory of your life, enabling you to change the quality of your life and the direction of your career in ways you never dreamed of.
The time frame can vary greatly and depends on a wide range of factors: your goal(s), your commitment and openness to change, your capacity for introspection, your circumstances, how quickly and thoughtfully you complete homework assignments, and other unique factors.We have individuals who come in for a very brief engagement (e.g., one mock interview coaching session). We have others who come in focused on one goal, achieve that goal, and begin work on another goal and then another. Those individuals who partner with us in multiple capacities and for multiple goals work with us for a year or more.
Marriage counselling is a past-focused discipline. The marriage counselor identifies the reasons for the client’s feelings and behaviours. Often, clients come away from marriage counselling with a label for themselves, which they then use to justify their actions and their inability to change.In relationship coaching, we don’t dwell on the reasons, because we want to avoid this negative outcome. Instead, we focus on the future, because no matter what happened in the past, you can make it better and learn to love, respect, appreciate each other and be happy.

Some are taught to suppress their feelings, which make them reject the idea of talking about their relationships with a coach. If your partner is like that, he or she is normal!Having said that, we can’t coach people who don’t want to be coached. In our program, client commitment is essential to change and success. The aim is for you and your partner to take control over your life and that starts by showing up and taking action.If your partner is not interested in relationship coaching, we recommend you get some coaching first. Your partner will soon notice the positive changes in you and want to get the same. Also, you will learn some techniques, which you can present in the safety of your home and get your partner comfortable with the process before he or she joins.It is sometimes essential for a husband and a wife to quarrel – they get to know each other be.
