A Coaching Model created by Charles Kingsley
(Transformational Coaching, UNITED KINGDOM)
My coaching model is based on the belief that the coach and being true to the moment with the client is the model. So, this is not a linear or even circular model but one that embodies the mysteries and wonders that are inherent in the lives of ourselves and our clients. And that by supporting whatever is part of the client’s experiences, we can help clients organically evolve and liberate themselves to fulfill more of their natural instincts. First, here are two simple definitions:
Organic process – A sustained phenomenon or one marked by gradual changes through a series of states; events now in process, evolving
Liberation – To set free, as from oppression, confinement, or foreign control.
This approach suggests that true liberation and meaning is an inherent instinct in all of us. And this sort of development is a life long process of discovery, creation and experimentation. And that when we can free clients up internally, they are more liberated to imagine, to wonder, and to engage more soulfully in the mysteries of life.
A couple qualities help make this approach sing:
The facets of this approach are organic, we focus on wherever the client is at. This model is based on focusing on what has the most energy in the moment for the client as the most important and rich experiences to be exploring. This means a reflective learning stance where the client will evolve as we create the space for them to reflect on their experience and learn as they go.
Key aspects of this process approach are:
Essentially, this model is based in a vision of nurturing the soul in our clients. This means that the coach is grounded in helping the client learn about their own soulfulness and how to cultivate this to fulfil their own deeper instincts in life. We move beyond the clients presenting problems to deeper levels of enchantment in the client and their lives.
