Coaching to optimise transitions

I have found all coaching very rewarding but have particularly enjoyed working with people who are considering or undergoing bold transformational steps in their life or career. Change can be enforced or chosen prompting internal transitions which range from soul-destroying to life-enhancing. Change is very often accompanied by a lost sense of identity which is a topic of particular personal interest and expertise.

Coaching aims to optimise your experience across all stages of transition...

  • the contemplation phase when transition is explored
  • understanding and removing blockers to change
  • managing the shock of a sudden change in circumstances
  • coping with a lost sense of identity
  • understanding your old, current and future identity
  • holistic planning for the transition and the new future
  • letting go of the old situation
  • navigating the neutral zone between old and new lives
  • exploring new perspectives on the future
  • re-shaping, re-inventing or re-establishing a post-transition identity
  • step by step guidance through transition
  • establish and sustain new situation post-transition
