Christine acted as a critical friend, focusing on some of the language I used and playing back terms to help a deeper exploration of what sat behind barriers and blockages to my thinking. Christine was sensitive, supportive and able to focus on the crux of issues, both encouraging and challenging, and who reframed thoughts and feelings to help me explore things in a different way that I would not have considered without support. The most important outcome was that my personal needs and values became part of my thinking around career development.
At the beginning of my coaching journey with Christine, I was lost. I had a general idea of what I wanted in life, but I couldn’t quite define my destination nor could I find the correct path to reach it.
The first coaching sessions allowed me to properly define my exact goals and to get on the right track. Those goals were to move to Dubai, continue my teaching job that currently pays the bills and, finally, get involved in the car industry in order to start an independent activity that will allow me to experience cars and travel.
It’s safe to say that thanks to Christine’s coaching, I am consistently completing tasks that bring me towards my end goal. The coaching sessions also motivated me to work harder and smarter to achieve my objectives.
I started my journey with Christine when I was not happy in my professional life and was looking for a big change. Christine has helped me through this process...as a result today I have accomplished my goal....I changed my attitude and my priority in life: family, love, friends have all gained a bigger place, I think Christine has an innate sense for coaching
Thank you so much for this, I am SO grateful. This is so helpful in guiding me in considering how to approach going forwards from here. What really blew me away was your neat analysis drawn from such a rambling narrative.
Oh how I wish you had been my mentor back in the day. I used to feel such a failure at times, trying so hard to make things work when I was simply unsuited to the challenge. Now I feel more able to say "sorry, this isn't for me".
Christine is very professional, she explained the ethics of coaching and what coaching entails. In the sessions we managed to set goals for quite a complicated situation and I really appreciate the help... on how I can move forward
The coaching sessions have helped me to focus and create SMART goals for me to pursue, both for the short term and long term future. I have been able to then take my goals and work out what I need to work on and develop in order to achieve them. I have found the structures and methods that Christine provided for doing this to be immensely helpful and it has allowed me to approach new goals with confidence.
