Solution-Focused Coaching & Life Skills Counselling
In my practice as a coach, I provide 3 holistic and unique styles of coaching, each suited more to an individual based on the type of support they're seeking and what they want to address in their life. I provide Solution-Focused Life Coaching, Life-Skills Counselling and a 'hybrid' of the two when I, and the client, mutually believe it will benefit them and our relationship the most! In taking this approach, I am able provide my clients with the necessary skills and tools needed to effectively navigate life's obstacles, discover and realize their 'life's purpose,' manage difficult life transitions, make difficult, but positive life changes, manage stress and time, increase their Emotional Intelligence and address the fears that often accompany one's journey in improving and feeling more fulfilled in their life.
The Solution-Focused Approach in coaching/counselling focuses on three core areas in a client’s life (Winbolt, 2011, p. 20):
1) Their abilities and strengths
2) The present and future
3) Their achievements and successes
Considering and examining the outcomes we wish to achieve as opposed to trying to understand the cause(s) of a problem are what a Solution-Focused approach aims to do. As stated by O’Hanlon & Weiner-Davis (1989, p. xx) a Solution-Focused approach is a “method that focuses on people’s competence, rather than their deficits, their strengths, rather than their weaknesses, their possibilities, rather than their limitations.”
As your coach, I'm always a supportive partner, working in collaboration with you throughout your journey of achieving your goal(s) and making life changes, throughout the ups and downs, keeping you accountable, on track, committed and most importantly, feeling supported and inspired.
