What is business coaching?
In today’s hectic business environment, it’s hardly a surprise that many people don’t understand exactly what business coaching is.
Put simply, through expert coaching and mentoring, business coaching takes your business from where it is now to where you want it to be.
As an experienced business coach I will help you grow your business, by ensuring your overall vision coincides with your goals.
After clarifying the direction you’d like your business to take, I’ll help you identify and prioritise the strategies necessary to achieve your goals.
Successful business coaching is rooted in accountability.
So, rather than doing your work for you, I’ll keep you focused on the end result and remind you how important it is.
Together, we can empower you to solve your problems and take ownership of your success.
By challenging the way you think and act, you can identify your professional blind spots and move forward a more well rounded, dynamic and success driven business owner.
Located in Wollongong for in-person sessions, with digital sessions available to assist you anywhere in the world, I work with clients both locally and internationally, with additional accreditation to deliver online coaching and counselling.

Counselling falls under the umbrella term of ‘talking therapies’.
Counselling gives people the opportunity to talk openly about their challenges and feelings, while being heard and understood.

What will business and executive coaching do for you?
With the assistance of an executive coach, you will:
- ✓ See yourself and others more clearly
- ✓ Learn more constructive ways to respond to criticism
- ✓ Take full advantage of your strengths and use them to enhance your business
- ✓ Build more productive relationships with clients, colleagues and everyone in your life, and;
- ✓ Define your goals and how you will achieve them
Business coaches form a facilitative, one-on-one relationship with the executives of a company.
This mentoring relationship is a powerful way to enhance your ability to add value to the organisation (i.e. improving profits, processes, sales, etc.).
To achieve value from this relationship, you must establish concrete business objectives, tie the coaching directly to these objectives, communicate these objectives clearly, and establish a partnership between the business leader, the coach and the clients.
