Cancer Partnering

If you have been diagnosed with cancer or another ‘dread’ disease, you will know how time slows in that moment as you stand on the precipice between what came before, and this terrible new reality. Your understanding of who you are is forever changed, and an unknown, and very frightening new version of you emerges. It is as if the mist lifts during a routine walk, and you find yourself standing on a cliff edge, scrambling not to teeter and fall.

And, even if you are surrounded by loved ones, you may feel very much alone. This is a journey that only you can take.

I have combined my personal experiences and the lessons learned during my cancer journey, together with solid research from international experts into a 10-week Cancer Partner Programme. I must state that this is not a medical intervention, nor will we make decisions about your treatment protocol. However, we will create a safe space for you to examine the root causes of your illness, to explore what you really need in order to heal, and to create all the right conditions to support you on your journey towards healing.

You will not be alone on this journey. I will be your Cancer Partner.

Individual Coaching

Are you ready to be coached? Have you tried other strategies, but with few resulting changes to your life? Coaching is a transformational methodology which focuses on new actions, underpinned by a deepening understanding of who you are and your hidden motivations. Because the reality is, actions which are not underpinned by self-awareness, and assisted through accountability are not sustainable.

I have worked with clients struggling with a range of dilemmas: from divorce and death to post-retirement and lack of direction. Whatever you are facing in your life, having a thinking partner on your side will help you to move from confusion and anxiety to clarity and action.

Team Coaching

Team coaching focuses on the team as a system, with input from the individuals within the team. The goal of team coaching is to allow the inherent intelligence within the system to emerge. Often, in teams unpopular voices are ignored or even shamed. This potentially important information is therefore submerged and lost to the system, but may bubble up in toxic forms. 
 
These are symptoms of a team requiring coaching: 
  • A negative atmosphere and culture
  • Gossip
  • Scapegoating a team member
  • Several levels of dialogue happening concurrently
  • Unofficial sub-groups within the team
  • Productivity failures and inadequate performance
  • Absenteeism and resignations
We create real-time, experiential opportunities for the team to try out consciousness-creating skills. The tools we offer are practical and easy to use – both during coaching sessions and in the workplace. Sessions are co-created with the team and team leader. Post-session application is encouraged.
