Progressive Coaching is a therapy which aims to empower a person to make
those choices and decisions that are right for them at a given time. It
differs from some other forms of counselling and coaching in that it works
holistically. This means, when looking at our lives, it takes into account
not only the rational/reasonable aspect of the mind but also the intuitive,
spiritual element which inwardly feels and knows the right way for ourselves.
The person is helped to strengthen their connection with this inner knowing
and come to understand themselves and others better, so enabling them
to find their own answers in a positive and empowered way.
can it help us?
This form of coaching can help anyone in any area of their life, from
relationships, family, bereavement or loss, to health, business and any
other life situation. It is also of great benefit for personal development
generally. It helps us to identify, and let go of, tension and pressures
in life, looking at habits, conditioning and expectations of ourselves
and others. It enables a person to see more clearly where they are now

appointment can last anything up to 1¼-1½ hours. If follow-up
appointments are advised then these generally take less time but it is
always the individual and unique needs of the person that dictate the
length and nature of the session each time. The person is able to work
through things in a supportive and non-judgemental environment at the
time and pace that is right for them - it is the client who chooses when
to look at certain issues. The therapist is there to help the person towards
a deeper understanding of situations and, when appropriate, to suggest
practical strategies which can help in daily life. However, as a professional
therapist, they will never make decisions for the person nor push further
than is necessary at the time. The progress of the individual depends
greatly on how they apply their deeper understanding in their daily life.
