WORK WITH ME
In my coaching work with individuals and groups, I focus on connection to and expression of soul essence, drawing on a range of wisdom and techniques to help people answer the questions, ‘Who am I? Why am I here? & Where am I going?’ in a way that is dynamic and creative.
My primary training is in Psychosynthesis Leadership Coaching
PSYCHOSYNTHESIS is an integrative, holistic and depth psychology that offers frameworks for working with the whole human being, including their spiritual and soulful dimensions.
LEADERSHIP COACHING is about expanding your capacity to lead your life consciously. That means taking full responsibility for your actions and the impact you are having on the world, whether or not you hold any formal leadership position.
PSYCHOSYNTHESIS LEADERSHIP COACHING is leadership coaching with a psycho-spiritual context. That means it's about helping you to lead your life from a place that is connected to your spiritual essence or soul.
This differs significantly from the type of leadership coaching that is geared towards satisfying the ego’s demands for status and recognition. Instead, coaching with me is about responding to what I call the four fundamental appetites of the soul - Truth, Beauty, Freedom and Love. These are the key ingredients in the cultivation of joy and meaning and are therefore the source of true prosperity.
So how do we go about cultivating them? By developing our capacity for Self Awareness, Self Acceptance, Self Love and Self Expression - the four ‘movements’ needed to create lasting change...
SELF AWARENESS is the cornerstone. It is usually where we begin, and it lays the foundation for the work. However awareness itself is not enough to create change - we can see our patterns and still collude in them - in fact, this is bound to happen unless we change the underlying emotional reality that creates them...
SELF ACCEPTANCE is crucial in acknowledging our wounding and defence and moving past it. It’s about making peace with the fact that we are wounded and imperfect and being willing to let our suffering in. Acceptance is about becoming receptive to our own pain. Being willing to feel where it hurts.
SELF LOVE is a step further. It’s about tending to our wounds, opening our hearts to ourselves and treating ourselves with compassion. So long as we participate in cycles of judgement and condemnation, we remain stuck in patterns of sabotage and avoidance. Self Love helps to soothe this tension and release us from these internal binds.
SELF EXPRESSION is what really gets things moving... When we give voice or movement to unexpressed thoughts, feelings or sensations, they stop unconsciously blocking us.
