My Ideal Client

Do you feel stuck or overwhelmed with an important decision, such as a career choice? Or do you struggle with your daily decisions, such as time management, personal productivity, or creating and maintaining healthy habits?

My Approach to Helping

I offer decision coaching to help you solve problems and achieve your goals. Issues I can help you with include: improving your time management, setting priorities, getting more work done, and establishing healthier habits. For your big decisions, we will use a structured process to clarify your core values and evaluate your options. This process will give you the necessary confidence in your decision and peace of mind, so that you can commit to taking action. Throughout our work together, I use decision-aiding tools that were developed on a scientific background and designed to enhance our ability to think systematically as well as creatively. I employ coaching methods that are evidence-based and have been proven effective for supporting decisions, improving performance and achieving goals. (Examples: mindfulness-based, cognitive behavioral, value focused, paradoxical, creative thinking and problem-solving techniques.)
