I can help you with all of these challenges through a unique solution focused approach which is an empirically based, scientific approach, that has proven to be successful in coaching.
How will I coach you?
I will educate you on how to manage and take control of your challenges. I will ask you questions to assist you so that you discover your own answers because you are unique. I will also support you by providing encouragement, feedback and practical suggestions to address specific challenges and hold you accountable for following through on your goals. I will offer you periodic reminders and suggest options if you feel stuck. Regular meetings and check-ins are an essential part of the my coaching process. These sessions are online, or by phone, depending on your preference.
The first coaching session is typically a one hour meeting so that I can get to know your strengths and specific challenges. Thereafter, we develop clear goals to guide future coaching sessions. Regular coaching sessions will last sixty minutes and are used to report progress on the previous week’s goals, reflect on factors enhancing and inhibiting progress and develop a step-by-step plan for identifying and achieving the next week’s goals.
Why Addchieve coaching?

Both models puts you in charge because I believe that the answers you seek already reside within you. I focus on your desired future so that you can reach your full potential. The solutions that you seek can be discovered through our open, confidential and objective coaching sessions.
What is the role of the client in coaching?
Coaching is a client-driven process. For coaching to be successful, the client must possess a strong desire for personal growth and improvement.
What is the difference between a therapist and a coach?
A therapist is problem focused, spends time dealing with the past, identifies and resolves negative beliefs, maladaptive behaviors, relationship issues, and feelings. The goal in therapy is to focus on past traumas and issues to change self-destructive habits, repair and improve relationships and work through painful feelings.
A coach is solution-focused, does not give advice, develops goals and objectives, believes that the client has the answers within them and educates the client on how to achieve their goals through defined processes. Coaches look to maximize the client’s personal and professional potential. They believe that the client is the expert within their own life. In addition, coaches align with what the client wants to achieve, encourages self-discovery, asks questions to identify the solutions and strategies that work for the client and they hold the client accountable in a way that works for them.
