Louisa’s Coaching Beliefs
My clients are resourceful and have the capacity to uncover their own challenges, solve those challenges and create a journey that makes sense to them. My clients are the sole decider of their focus each and every time you coach. The coaching process will be empowering and guide my clients to make informed and long-term changes in their lives that honor and benefit their life path.
Coaching is a partnership relationship between the coach and the client. The coach works continuously with the client to raise awareness of how they are responding to the world around them. We are all resourceful and whole and have the capacity to solve your own challenges. Coaching isn’t therapy, rather it’s focused on being emotionally aware, and developing an understanding of who you are, your values and where you’d like to be in your world and in relationship with those around you.
- Sourcing the answers from you
- Partnering and honoring your process, values and beliefs
- Accepting what is in the moment and inventing a future from that place
- Directed by your agenda
- Meeting you where you are at and having consensus about your reality

Coaching is not
- Giving advice
- Leading, directing or manipulating
