In Coaching, I support clients to move forward and achieve changes that they have not been able to achieve alone. As an NLP Coach, I work with people in an extremely outcome-focused style, identifying the outcome you wish to achieve in the first session, and often achieving this within 5 Coaching Sessions.
I have a background in both corporate, as a HR & Organisational Development Consultant, and Personal Development, as a leader of personal development events and group coaching. This enables me to work with Clients who are seeking to create a change internally that will enable the change in behaviour they are seeking, in either the personal or leadership context.
Many clients who enter Coaching are surprised at the changes that occur via a methodology that involves tapping into the existing resources and wisdom that they already possess. My Clients are fully involved in the process of understanding HOW they are doing 'stuck' or the current 'problem state' and are fully empowered in the process of change. The change processes do not require that people spend time re-living or rethinking their 'emotional past'. In order to participate in Coaching, people need to be able to reflect on their own thinking patterns and behaviour and be able to process feedback.
Coaching methodologies that I am trained in include Neurolinguistics/Cognitive Coaching, Creative Coaching (such as sandplay and art), Multiple Brain Integration methods, and Integral Eye Movement Therapy.
"Grace guided many staff members to become leaders in their particular areas. Her individual sessions were sought after and recommended by each of our staff members and her creative Leadership sessions are still implemented by many of our staff. A professional with integrity and expert knowledge shared in a creative, memorable way. Many of her tricks will still be implemented for years to come by those she brushed shoulders with."

Below is a list of coaching outcomes that I have worked with past clients to achieve, as an example of what is possible to change. This list is from 'personal coaching', where people are seeking a change within themselves to create the outcome they want in their life or work.
Below is a list of real outcomes I have worked with clients to achieve in the area of leadership and work based coaching. These people may be self-funded, or supported by their organisation to receive coaching and this also involves changes in thinking and behaviours that allow them to take their leadership to the next level:

My approach to Relationship Coaching combines my Coaching and Mediation skills. It is an extremely pragmatic approach to re-establishing communication and working through issues that are causing dissatisfaction, as well as creating agreements for new 'rules of engagement' going into the future. It can also involve the use of a 'pair report' in a profiling instrument to help understand differences in personality, motivations and communication styles.
For Relationship Coaching to work, I need to be engaged by both parties from the very beginning, and not after a period of time of individual coaching for one person in the relationship. This is in order to remain truly unbiased. If you are interested in this specialised form of Coaching, please contact me and I can provide more detail regarding my approach.
I have worked relationships as varied as married couples, to business partners.
