Every Champion has a Coach!
Back in 1989, I was the first acupuncturist to work at the London Lighthouse and the Immune Development Trust, both charities set up to provide services for people affected by the emerging HIV/AIDS crisis. It was tough work! I ended up as a team supervisor at IDT, and this was the start of my role as a coach and guide. Over the years, I have continued to supervise other practitioners in many different situations and roles, including my team of practitioners in Malaysia.
My approach is client-centred, in the belief that with attention and guidance, you can be guided to find your own answers. I use a variety of counselling, coaching and reflective skills, including EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique). My coaching can be broken down into three main services:
- Mentoring and supervision
- Focused coaching
- Book coaching
Over the years, I’ve guided many people to more reflective, more fulfilling and more rewarding practice. To learn more about the kinds of coaching I offer, please read below. If you’d like to have a simple chat about your needs, you can book a thirty-minute chat. This thirty-minute chat is free..
REFLECTIVE PRACTICE – MENTORING
A mentor acts as an advisor, counsellor, or guide to a peer or junior practitioner, guiding you and helping you reflect on issues that affect the way you work, helping you navigate your professional life and long-term goals. The range of issues explored can be broad, relating not only to your practice but areas of emotional and personal development as well.
- How present are you in your own practice?
- Do you have time to reflect on what you are actually doing and where you want to go with it?
- Are you so busy treating that you lose sight of the bigger picture, your long-term goals and aspirations?
A mentoring relationship should be a kind relationship. It tends to be long-term, and meetings can be scheduled fortnightly, monthly or quarterly, depending on your needs.
