What is Coaching?

The International Coach Federation (ICF) refers to coaching as

“partnering with clients in a thought-provoking and creative process that inspires them to maximize their personal and professional potential.”

Coaching recognises the client as the expert in their own world (life and work) and knows every person is creative, resourceful, and whole.

Basically the coaching process is about helping the client in identifying where they are now, where they would like to be and then support them in closing that gap. The coach does this through –

  • discovering, clarifying, and aligning with where the client wants to be,
  • encouraging self-discovery and trust within themselves,
  • eliciting client-generated solutions and strategies,
  • keeping the client accountable and ensuring they are taking responsibility for themselves, and
  • providing support to the client.


Are you –

  • feeling out of balance in your life and work?
  • going through a transition in life? (e.g. changing jobs)
  • ready to simplify your life?
  • facing a stressful issue at work?
  • wanting to uncover your strengths and gifts?
  • needing some support to deal with fear or self-doubt?
  • experiencing challenges in your relationships?
  • wanting to increase your self-reliance or self-compassion?
  • procrastinating?
  • feeling overwhelmed or confused with everything you have to do?
  • ready to take better care of yourself and look after your health and wellbeing?
  • wanting to live a more meaningful and fulfilling life?
  • a teacher wanting some individual support that links to the Australian Professional Standards for Teachers?

If any of these sound like you, then coaching could be for you.


What is Coaching at Habits for Wellbeing?

Coaching at Habits for Wellbeing is delivered during regular sessions by telephone or Zoom, whichever is more convenient. We will do an initial 15-minute session to see if coaching is for you.

The client decides what to focus on for each coaching session (i.e. the content). As your coach, I support you to develop awareness, explore options and make conscious choices so you can make the most of the opportunities that are presented to you (i.e. the process).

Every person is unique, so there is not a one-size-fits-all approach to coaching. We cater specifically for individual needs. There are options to suit everyone from one-hour sessions to regular monthly coaching. We also cater for groups and organisations.
