Why should I engage Matthew to help me achieve my goals or overcome my existing challenges when he is not providing or prescribing me any solutions?
Because you can
Coaches believe that all clients have the innate capacity and ability to be resourceful in finding solutions that work best for them - What works for me may not work for you!
Making sense of what's exactly going on
When clients share about issues that they faced, the coach can facilitate in exploring the links between different situations that the clients shared.
A Coach asks you POWERFUL & difficult questions
Humans avoid asking themselves questions that they are not ready to face! Through powerful questioning, effective coaches can bring awareness to the clients on how they have inconsistencies in what they say or feel since there are times when the human mind is in conflict with self.
KNOWING YOURSELF BETTER
Coaches are trained in active listening and pays close attention to the clients' choice of words, description of issues and display of emotions. Good coaches are able to use these evidences to make the unconscious conscious, which increases the self-awareness of the clients.
YOUR CHANGE CATALYST
There is accountability and ongoing encouragement by the coach to ensure that clients progressively move towards their goals. Can you recall the last time you set a goal and left it untouched due to procrastination? A good coach will not allow that to happen! So... it is time you engage a good coach.
Hear what our participants have to say
Matthew is a very engaging and insightful coach. He made me realised that the answers were with me all this time even though I was oblivious to them initially. I am sure that like-minded individuals who aren't clear about what they want to do in life can engage his coaching services to gain clarity. I am glad I took the first step to approach him and everything fell in place from there!
Matthew is a patient coach with good listening skills. From my sharing, he facilitated the process in making sense of the issues I am facing. I discovered a recurring theme that is related to the issues I am facing. From there, I was able to design my action plan. Now I feel more motivated to stop procrastinating and progressively tackle the issues that I am presently facing. I am glad that I approached Matthew for coaching.
Matthew is a very natural coach who made the session very pleasant and comfortable for me to share my problems. He listened to me attentively and asked the right questions that led me to find the solutions to my problems. Also, he guided me to see my problem from a different perspective. It was a very fruitful session for me to be able to figure out what is the next step I should be taking.
I am amazed that in such a short amount of time coaching, Matthew was able to help me navigate and show a clearer path to my lifelong dream. With his guidance, I was able to fragmentise actionable and achievable steps. His supportive and non-judgmental approach makes me believe in myself that I can achieve things. He has helped me look at failures in a whole new light. Thanks Matthew, I am eternally grateful!
