Coaching approach

Coaching to Roy is a partnership based on mutual trust and respect that ultimately leads to greater awareness and responsibility for your objectives. His approach is to use open questions and active listening to facilitate a dialogue that stimulates self-awareness leading to new insights and personal responsibility. The tools and techniques that he uses are based on behavioural, person-centred and systemic approaches. Roy makes time to explore your goals and context; long and short term. He is keen to understand your values and strengths in order to best inform the work you’ll do together.

Coachees are expected to be engaged, open and committed. Roy’s role is to facilitate the coaching process, provide support and challenge to the coachee. Thinking and reflection will be required throughout, and between sessions.
