Louise believes in the power of self-awareness. Insights, gained through self-reflection within the context of a coaching relationship, are key catalyses in creating effectiveness, confidence and contentment at work. She is passionate about helping others to achieve personal growth, accept themselves and appreciate the impact they have on their wider relationships both personally and professionally.
For Louise, self-appreciation and self-acceptance are key foundations for stimulating positive behavioural change. Through building close and supportive coaching relationships with her clients, Louise creates impetus for them to understand themselves better. She receives great joy in supporting her clients to embrace new perspectives and translate these into behavioural changes in such a way that they are empowered to become more effective in their lives in a dynamic and sustainable way.
