About Co-Active Coaching

"The Co-Active Model balances self-awareness [...] and courageous action to create an environment where individuals can be deeply fulfilled, connected to others and successful in what matters most." - coactive.com

Coaching is an emerging and evolving field so there are often questions about what coaching is or is not. Answers may vary somewhat from coach to coach, so I've outlined the following to clarify how I view my role as a coach. I'm also happy to answer further questions during a free 30 minute sample session (see Sessions tab for details.)

What coaching with Phoebe is:

  • It is for people willing and ready to take bold action to get what they are longing for in life
  • It is a supportive environment where clients can expect to be truly heard, acknowledged, and championed
  • It is a safe space to share the private details of life with the assurance of confidentiality
  • It is a place where strong and complex emotions may show up (which will be handled with care)
  • It is intended to challenge the status quo and will require a beginner's mind and an experimental spirit
  • It is designed around the client's goals, values, and agenda

What coaching with Phoebe is not:

  • It does not hold the education and expertise of the coach above the innate wisdom of the client
  • It is not about the coach telling the client what to do
  • It is not about the coach explaining why clients think or behave in a certain way
  • It is not an analysis of the past
  • It is not about staying in your comfort zone
  • It is not just about the sessions themselves ... it's the brave action clients take *outside* of the sessions that is most transformative

As a Certified Professional Co-Active Coach, I acknowledge and agree to honor my ethical and legal obligations to my coaching clients and sponsors, colleagues, and to the public at large. I pledge to comply with the ICF Code of Ethics, and to practice these standards with those whom I coach.
