A Coaching Model created by Catarina Brandao
(Transition Coaching, CHINA)
The U represents the possibility you have to make a “U turn” in your life.
My coaching practice is all about you.
You are at the beginning, centre and at the end of the whole process.
My role, as your coach, is to support you to make the changes you want to in your life, by focusing on your strengths and qualities.
I will help you to reach the goals you aspire to, whilst working through the challenges you are presented with in life.
Throughout our sessions you will be gaining self-awareness and learning how to link your new insights together. This will give you a better understanding of who you are, what motivates and drives you, and what makes you unique.
At the end of each session, you will feel more energized than when we started.
It is important that you know that we will work in a safe and trusting environment.
Every coaching conversation will be totally confidential.
You are the one that decides what you want to share with me.
My purpose during the time we spend together is to support you to be your true and authentic self.
The beginning of your session is your opportunity to share with me what is happening in your life. My aim is to begin to understand the values, beliefs and strengths that make you the unique individual that you are.
We will then navigate areas you make progress in or change. We will set your goals, ensuring you have a clear idea of what direction your coaching is heading in.
We will begin to illuminate what may be holding you back and what would enable you to move forward to achieve your goals.
As we progress I will ask you lots of questions. These are intended to help you reflect, increase your self-awareness and generate insight.
Throughout the coaching process, you will learn and understand more about yourself.
You will also question what you want to let go of and what you want to keep, to bring your goals to reality.
As you start to see the potential of what you can achieve and how to get there, the possibilities will unveil.
This is the point in the coaching process where you will start connecting the dots and getting the bigger picture of how things are intertwined in your life. It is also a time to acknowledge your unique potential.
Finally it is time for you to define your action steps – how you are going to make things happen.
Without action, you will never experience the changes you want to make. You will only need to take one step at a time, but it will make you realize that you are one step nearer to where you want to be, which is ultimately the purpose of us working together.
