THIS IS WHAT NAFISA DOES
WHAT IS COACHING?
Coaching assists a client to bridge the gap between where they are now, to where they would like to be far more effectively than if they worked alone.
A coach achieves this by:
- Helping to raise the awareness of a client with powerful questioning techniques so they can get clear on what they truly desire and who they are at their core
- Assisting them to create practical, step-by-step action plans to reach their goals
- Providing on-going support through any changes or obstacles a client may encounter
- Providing a client with tools, techniques and strategies to create lasting change and success (Ref – The coaching Academy)
Coaching by no means takes the place of therapy or counselling (These are different professions). Nafisa will not coach anyone with a confirmed diagnosis of any mental health issues or those currently undergoing treatments. Nafisa’s coaching service is for those experiencing mild imbalances managing their mental health and wellbeing.
