Transformational Coaching is the process where a person recognises their values and, consciously, honours them by taking action to apply them in their lives.
Any desired changes are defined by the vision and goals the client wants to achieve in the short or the long term. It differs from counselling and psychotherapy as it is a shorter and more goal oriented process.
The process can last from 6 to 12 sessions and the outcomes are jointly defined and measured. The client is often given some exercises in the form of ‘homework’ to complete in order to continue the process of the desired transformation.
The transformational coach is a non judgemental supporter of the person’s vision and goals. They use appropriate tools, provide feedback and encourage the client to understand their strengths, their goals and their areas of development. Together they design the route and the steps forward and reflect on the process as it progresses.
Transformational Coaching at ICUC draws upon various theories and practices including traditional life coaching and creative methods, such as visualisations, adjusting them to suit each client’s unique nature and needs. The client is encouraged to safely come up with their own realisations and solutions that they want to implement.
The road to success and fulfilment often include the steps of goal clarification, addressing beliefs and obstacles that hold back, productive and supportive reflection, integration of lessons and conscious risk taking and commitment.
