• Coaching was where I had been able to safely, without consequence, explore and understand my reality and eventually take steps to fundamentally change my life for the better. As part of this change I had identified career aspirations and the need to find a new work role that fitted with my values. As a result, my professional career took an interesting turn, which resulted in me gaining a leadership post with the responsibility of developing the use of coaching in the clinical field of adult mental health care.
  • As social beings, we communicate at any moment of our existence with both verbal and non-verbal cues. Each piece of communication (coming in and going out) passes through our internal “software”, our mind. The simplest communication process is illustrated as linear and goes through 4 key stages: coding – sending – receiving – decoding. However, it’s not at all that simple.

Parents face a lot of challenges in trying to train children into becoming successful and well-bred individuals. The need to balance this achievement with acceptable conduct always seems to be the “toughest bite of the cake.’’
  • The Socratic Method is still used to this day in multiple arenas including education and therapy. Meanwhile offering a non-directive ‘listening ear’ and drawing out a relative stranger with open questions has always been an established part of the human experience: just consider a hairdresser. We quickly realise they use gentle questioning to build rapport and help you work out what you want: ‘How do you want it to look?’ ‘What's the plan?’ ‘How does it feel?’ ‘What are you doing this summer?’
