What is a Coach?

Coaching is defined as a partnership with clients in a thought-provoking and creative process that inspires them to maximize their personal and professional potential.

A Coach will work with clients to set SMART goals that ensure they are significant, remove any obstacles or barriers to reaching them and are aligned with your values and passion.
