What it all means

Growth begins when we challenge ourselves to take on the obstacles that block and stand in our way of being the person we want to be. While many times we can figure out these steps on our own, sometimes we need a neutral and compassionate person to figure things out with.

This is where I can support you!

My Coaching practice allows you to learn new ways to personally show up in the world.

In addition to coaching, once we have built up a relationship and understand how each other works, different action steps and activities maybe introduced to further the behaviour shifts between sessions.

What this does is allows you to live more on purpose while becoming the expert of yourself.

Stones of Meaning

An example of a Coaching session using the GROW model: 


G: Goal or focus of session.

The client introduces what they would like to be different, need help with, or what they would like to talk about. 


R: Reality or the client's reality with achieving this focus?

The Coach will ask questions to help the client discover new truths about themselves.


O: Obstacles that are standing in the client's way of being the person they want to be.

Through conversation the coach and client will come to understand what needs to be shifted so that progress can be achieved. 


W: Ways forward and willingness to take action.

Steps are created in how the client can move from their current state of awareness, understanding or behaviour to be more inline with where they want to be. 

An additional session may then be booked if it is agreed upon by the client and coach. ​

Mentoring programs

In mentoring sessions the answers do not come from just the conversation between coach and client, but are shared from the coaches experience and training. These sessions are very different than coaching in that the client can access any information that the coach is able to provide and help guide them to a new way of thinking.


A typical Mentoring session looks something like this:

  1. Client introduces what they would like to learn more about, need help with, or what they would like to achieve. 

  2. The Coach then helps guide the client with the knowledge that they have acquired allowing the client to increase more self-awareness on or understanding of the desired topic.

  3. These sessions can sometimes look like a question and answer dialogue. With most run with a specific agenda to increase the client's knowledge quickly.  

  4. An additional session may then be booked if it is agreed upon by the client and coach. ​
