What is coaching?
‘A professional partnership between a qualified coach and an individual or team that support the achievement of extra-ordinary results, based on goals set by the individual or team’ (ICF 2005)
In other words I will support you to get where you want to go. We will work together to set goals and establish systems, habits and practices to get you there.
Ok But what is a Relationship Coach?
A relationship coach (like me!) specialises in supporting the development, growth and flourishing of healthy, beautiful relationships. I teach clients about the foundations that underpin healthy relationships and we work together to set goals for their relationship in their unique circumstances. We then systematically develop tools and strategies to strengthen, nourish and nurture their relationship so that it can survive and thrive no matter what life throws at it!
Relationship and communication coaching for Individuals and Couples
Why is relationship coaching important?
Human beings are programmed, hardwired, built for connection. Feeling safe and loved is a core need of all human beings. We know that children thrive best in secure and loving homes. So for us as individuals, and for us as parents, the health of our intimate relationships needs to be an absolute priority. This is even more important for Expat Mamas. Often our partners are our only family in our new countries, so not only is the pressure bigger on the relationship but the importance of strengthening the relationship is that much more pronounced.
Is there any type of relationship that you don’t work with?
All coaching programs are fully LGBTQIA inclusive. I believe that everyone deserves to have healthy, loving and supportive relationships.
I don’t work with clients in relationships where there is family violence. If you are currently experiencing domestic or family violence please contact 1800 RESPECT (1800 737 732 or visit https://1800respect.org.au/ ) and visit https://www.dvrcv.org.au/support-services/national-services to find the right support fo you.
What are the BRAVO sessions I have seen you talk about?
Great question! BRAVO refers to the Five Foundation Principals I believe underpin every healthy and happy relationship. BRAVO stands for Boundaries, Respect, Attention, Vulnerability and Openness. In coaching sessions, we work together on what each of these means to you, how they show up (or not) in your relationships and how to get them to show up and work for you so that your relationships can be strong, healthy and happy for the long term- even when there are huge life changes (like having children, or moving country!)
