Personal Coaching

WHAT DO I DO?

I work with people from all backgrounds to help them change a specifically chosen aspect of their lives, work, relationships or communication. Some clients want to bring a shift to a professional or personal relationship, others want to reach a particular goal. I work with you as person and the meaning you make of your life, instead of working with the details of your life/challenge (which is often where you and we together, might get stuck).

The changes that people want to see happen in life can only come after a shift in how they approach the task, situation, other person or themselves. This shift is what we create together in the coaching work, and what will lead to the tangible change you want to see and experience in your life.

HOW DOES IT WORK?

By approaching your lived experience with curiosity, we create new insights and the possibility of change. You will learn to recognise and stop old ways of problem solving which do not serve you, and create new ones which are helpful and highly productive. You will be able to use your existing and new strengths with awareness, intention and potency to solve not only your immediate challenges, but unforeseen ones as well.

As a coach it is my passion to provide a safe and potent environment in which you can explore your approach to problem solving. You will gain deeper insight into yourself and your challenges, opening up positive potential to personal and professional change.

HOW OFTEN DO WE WORK TOGETHER?

One coaching session every two to four weeks works well for many people. Each situation is different and the details of our coaching arrangement will be mutually designed based on your own circumstances. For clients connecting to me through Temenos Retreat, I do single sessions, with the option to continue online if desired.

Consider that between coaching sessions, 

  • you find an opportunity to take action based on your insights and strategies planned in the previous coaching session
  • you will set aside some time to reflect on how these actions have helped you reach your outcomes, or why they did not
  • you will think about the specific focus for the next coaching session

As you will have a different context and outcome compared to the next person, the timing of your sessions depends on your own needs and circumstances.

HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?

I approach my service fees with the philosophy of “co-creating the coaching agreement”. Because of this the coaching fees I charge may differ from country to country and person to person based on their circumstances.

Thank you for the manner in which you have facilitated our sessions. It was both professional and productive. Although my initial expectations of the coaching were somewhat obscured you remained committed and respectful. I have learnt many lessons about myself and feel I have gained the ability to navigate my way through challenging situations or circumstances. The models you shared will be of great value to me for many years to come. I would highly recommend your coaching service to anyone willing to make positive and rewarding life changes.

Coach/Consultant

Alex came highly recommended as an empathetic coach, which he was! I contracted a few sessions to sort through some growing concerns that needed to be addressed. His ability to actively listen, understand the underpinning issues of both my personal and professional life were exemplary. He heard what was unspoken and brought it to my awareness through powerful questions and direct communication. This opened up the space for me to explore options to resolve my concerns. I benefited from his gentle nudges that helped me commit to new approaches to overcome old and tried methods that were ineffective. He clearly demonstrated a professional code of ethics and conduct. I find him generous in sharing his knowledge to create a lasting change.
