“My Shift coaching sessions have enabled me to think more independently, not only in financial areas but other areas of my personal life. I feel more empowered to take time out and process things in a way that reduces stress.”


Shift Client

“I recently took up a brand new post, Coaching has helped me better manage and control my calendar for maximum impact and develop strategic priorities; given me greater confidence around when to say “yes” and when to say “no.”

What is transformational coaching?

Coaching is a form of talking therapy that enables a person, group, or team to move from where they are to where they want to be, through a process of exploration and action. 

Self-discovery, results-driven, action-oriented, non-judgmental, confidentiality, non-advisory, empowering, equality, these guiding principals contribute to making coaching such a useful personal and organisational development tool. 

How does transformational coaching work? 

Firstly coaching enables people to identify where they are now, recognise what the real challenges are, what practical changes need to be faced, and what mental and emotional hurdles need to be overcome. 

Finally, coaching seeks to create clear-sighted decisions, specific plans, and committed actions and ultimately seeks to support the client or business by fostering a sense of accountability around the agreed action. 

All of this is achieved through a process of focused questioning, objective feedback, and other powerful techniques. 

What difference can it make? 

Shift coaching clients are nine times more likely to make and stick to plans that deliver impact, over time, resulting in healthier, wealthier and happier individuals and businesses.
