Parakeet Coaching & Consulting

Parakeet Coaching & Consulting

Working together, we can co-create meaning and purpose by taking an intentional approach to identifying, pursuing and achieving your goals.

As an internationally credentialled coach, I have had the privilege to work with people from all walks of life who seek better relationships; more satisfying work; greater balance between family, community and work responsibilities; and the support to make courageous changes.

Coaching approaches include: cognitive behavioural coaching, solution-focussed coaching, ontological coaching, conversational intelligence, positive psychology, and narrative coaching.

How will coaching help me?

Frequently we arrive at a place in our lives and find ourselves wondering exactly how we got there. We may no longer have a genuine connection between our key values and the roles that we are playing or the positions that we hold inside and outside of work. We may be unable to articulate our goals, let alone how we intend to achieve them. A sense that something is ‘missing’ may be present.

As your coach, I will engage you in conversations and activities that are designed to be thought-provoking and creative, allowing you to get in touch with that part of yourself that yearns for life to be different. Once you have clarified what it is that you truly desire at work, at home and/or as a member of your community, I will work with you to develop the skills, knowledge, behaviours and courage to achieve what you desire.

What can I expect in coaching?

In your first session we will discuss the key concern/s that brought you to coaching. We explore these in some detail in order to arrive at some goals for the coaching relationship. We will discuss how we will work together, including which modalities (types) of coaching are most likely to meet your needs, the frequency and number of sessions and any other details.

Each session we will focus on your goals. We may have conversations that are designed to help you clarify your values, your goals or key aspects of the situation you find yourself in. We may analyse problems in detail, breaking them down in order to understand them. We may do activities that help you to think creatively about what a desirable future might look like and how dreams might be turned into reality. We may explore how your moods and emotions impact on what you believe you can achieve. We may explore how you can use your body more effectively to open up possibilities.

By the end of each session, you will have new insights into how you can find greater fulfilment through taking positive actions towards your goals.

What does coaching cost?

The fee for a standard 60 minute session is $295. Sessions are nominally 60 or 90 minutes, though session length may vary slightly. Other session lengths are available on request.

Special prices are available for NGOs and full-time students. Discounted packages are also available.
