This month I became an Associate Certified Coach (ACC), approved by the International Coach Federation (ICF). This career milestone signifies my commitment to professional standards in the coaching industry, and to my own continued growth and education. By choosing to pursue an ICF Credential, I have earned the credibility conferred by the only globally recognised professional coaching credential. This is how I demonstrate my dedication to excellence in the coaching industry and to you, my clients. Without you, I would not be an ACC! So, I sincerely appreciate your time, support and trust.

I am dedicated to the ICF principles and those of the Career Development Association of Australia (CDAA), where I attain a great deal of valuable knowledge and skills.In progressing my career as a Coach and furthering my education, I must attend professional development activities that focus on theory, practice and personal learning such as workshops, annual conferences and short courses held outside work hours. I also volunteer as a committee member and am currently a designated career development mentor.

In case you didn’t know, professional coaching brings many wonderful benefits including an independent and fresh perspective on personal challenges, enhanced decision-making skills, greater self-awareness and increased confidence. Those who undertake coaching also can expect improvement in productivity, life and work satisfaction  and the attainment of relevant goals. To determine whether you could benefit from coaching, start by summarising what you would expect to accomplish in coaching. When you have a clear idea of the desired outcome, a coaching partnership can be a useful tool for developing strategies that get you results.

Since coaching is a partnership, ask yourself whether collaboration, other viewpoints, and new perspectives are valued. Also, are ready to devote the time and the energy to making real changes? If the answer is yes, then coaching may be a beneficial way for you to grow and develop across many levels.

Coaching is an investment in your future. I am proud to be part of a client’s journey and am here to assist you unearth happiness!
