What is Professional Coaching?

The International Coach Federation (ICF) defines coaching as a partnership with clients in a thought-provoking and creative process that inspires them to maximize their personal and professional potential.

As your coach, I will facilitate client-driven sessions where you determine the topic and direct the change you want to occur.

Professional coaching is not to be confused with other helping professions such as therapy, mentoring, consulting, or training.
