Coaching approach

Helen takes a scientific approach to coaching, ensuring that the content and structure of her coaching is evidence based. Rather than subscribing to a ‘one-size-fits-all’ methodology, Helen blends a variety of approaches to ensure that she provides a unique coaching service suitable at an individual level, based on the specific context. Helen is influenced by the fields of psychiatry, psychology, neuroscience, behavioural economics, biology and anthropology. Throughout the coaching process, Helen will seek to create and maintain an open, honest dialogue to examine the effectiveness of the coaching approach and change direction when required.

Most importantly, compassion, non-judgement, empathy and sensitivity form the foundation of all coaching sessions.
