Below are definitions for the most common types of coaching you will encounter when seeking a coach to suit your needs. In reality, an effective coach should be able to help any client.


A collaborative solution-focused, results-orientated and systematic process in which the coach facilitates the enhancement of work performance, life experience, existing relationships, self-directed learning and personal growth of the coachee.


The coach is working with a number or individuals either to achieve a common goal within the group, or create an environment where individuals can co-coach each other.


The specific remit of a corporate coach is to focus on supporting an employee, either as an individual, as part of a team and/or organization to achieve improved business performance and operational effectiveness


Specifically focused at senior management level where there is an expectation for the coach to feel as comfortable exploring business related topics, as personal development topics with the client in order to improve their personal performance.


Understanding and improving relationship dynamics and communication and implementing workable strategies should be the goal of every relationship coach.


In the case of specialised coaching, the coach is expert in addressing one particular aspect of a person’s life e.g. stress, career, or the coach is focused on enhancing a particular section of the population e.g. doctors, youths.

The Right & Ethical Approach To Helping Others

I take a plain and straightforward approach to positively helping individuals and couples.

In my opinion, the coaching and therapy industries have put far too much emphasis on categorising, formalising and over complicating what should be relative simple and efficient services being offered to clients. Whether it's life coaching, relationship coaching, executive, group or any other form of coaching - many parallels can be drawn with regards to what the clients are trying to achieve. Far too many people find themselves stuck in ongoing coaching (therapeutic and counselling) relationships when in reality the resolution of issues and the setting of goals should be a relatively fast and often practical process.
