Coaching & mentoring for Leaders & busy professionals

Are you a busy professional with lots of commitments and distractions?

Would you like some space and time to focus on you and your future?

Some people call me "The Intention Coach", due to my research and work on the subject of purpose and intention. At a time when many are questioning whats important in life, I coach individuals to be clear on their intentions in life, leading to greater life satisfaction, happiness and personal success. My book, Intention Matters is available in English and Portuguese in bookshops worldwide.

 

My specialist areas include: Leadership, Resilience, Career and life transitions, mindset, Mindful Resilience training and work focused mindfulness.

 

Having co-trained over 270 Workplace Mindfulness trainers worldwide, I also offer mentoring and supervision for mindfulness trainers, delivering mindfulness in a workplace context. 

When I coach you... 

  • You have my undivided attention.  I help you create the space to pause, think, reflect and plan.

  • I am focused on helping you to achieve tangible outcomes

  • I do my best to inspire and motivate you.  It wont be a walk in the park - I will challenge you and hold you accountable in a way that friends, and colleagues can’t.

  • I will help you to feel empowered and confident.  Using a range of tools I can help you to identify your inbuilt strengths and intentions so you can be your your best self and lead a more authentic life. ​

Is coaching right for me?
 

Coaching is one of the most effective ways to develop leadership and improve employee performance. The personal benefits of coaching are wide-ranging. Its especially valuable when you’re facing change or a new challenge, or when you know that something needs to change but you’re unsure what or how. Its also invaluable when you have a specific goal in mind, but don't know how to get there. 

What are the benefits of coaching? 

 

Clients report that coaching has positively impacted their careers as well as their lives by helping them to:

  • Establish and take action towards achieving goals and intentions

  • Become more self-reliant

  • Gain more job and life satisfaction

  • Take greater responsibility and accountability for actions and commitments

  • Work better with others - especially those they find challenging

  • Communicate more effectively 

80% of people who receive coaching report increased self-confidence, and over 70% benefit from improved work performance, relationships, and more effective communication skills. 86% of companies report that they recouped their investment on coaching and more.

What is the difference between coaching and mentoring? 

The words 'Coaching' and ‘Mentoring' are often used as if they’re one and the same. They’re not.

 

While mentoring and coaching share a common purpose – helping people to develop and grow – the approaches and their implementation are different....

Coaches ask questions and use a range of techniques that lead you to find your own answers.

 

Mentors share their experience role/ sector experience by advising and guiding, and can be directive when need be.

 

Having many years experience in leadership roles in a variety of sectors, I can offer you coaching or mentoring or a combination of the two depending on your learning preferences and needs. 
 

Purpose and Intention is at the heart of all our offerings, which include:

Manage your emotions at work

A five hour coaching programme which can be scheduled within a two to six month time frame.

 

We all experience periods of anger, sadness and happiness, this is part of being human. 

Emotions:

  • Can help us make decisions 

  • Allow other people to understand us 

  • Allow us to understand others
     

Emotions tell the body what to do.

  • Fear – example - you hear a strange noise in the night feelings.  

    • Your senses  become tuned for danger. 

    • Emotional memories are recalled (how you coped with similar situations in the past) - you use this information to help you deal with this one.

  • Sadness – example – suffering a loss

    • feelings of sadness help our minds turn inwards to release our mental resources

    • can help us establish new goals and forgetting the old ones we’ve lost.

 

 

Unfortunately we sometimes experience emotional responses that are inappropriate or unhelpful. 

 

Understanding how your emotions work is the first step to managing your emotions. I offer coaching and a wide range tools and techniques to help you to better understand and manage your emotions using a combination of mindfulness, neuroscience, and CBT tools.
