“And then the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.”
My approach to coaching – whether you are seeking it for your professional or your personal life – is essentially to help you to explore what really matters to you and then support you to take the actions towards creating a satisfying, meaningful life. I bring a perspective that is forward-focused and brings hope to the areas of life where you may feel stuck. Our work together helps you to reach into your greater potential, to stretch yourself and to exercise greater choice in how and where you place your precious energy and attention.
In a professional context, coaching can be closely aligned with organisational goals and your career development. It is rare that professional development exists in isolation from the rest of a client’s life so I take a holistic approach to executive coaching, looking at the whole person.
I specialise in leadership development, bringing an extensive understanding of various coaching models and tools, and experience in a multitude of global organisations including Apple, Ebay, Paypal, Nissan.
Sessions tend to be in blocks of six, lasting between 90 and 150 minutes (depending on regularity, capacity and resources), usually at fortnightly to monthly intervals. Skype can be used once we have established a sound working partnership.
Psychosynthesis as a coaching approach: this approach is emphasised towards helping people to live on-purpose, actualising their vision and realising their innate and unique potential. It is a profoundly positive approach, yet one that engages with the process of struggle that individuals often experience as they develop beyond their limitations.
At Equilibrium we consider that the mental, physical, emotional, social and spiritual aspects of a client are all vital parts of the whole, and we see that individual – YOU – as a unique and important part in the complex web of life.
Together we will seek to harness your values and purpose with your skills, experience, intuition and creativity so that you can really align yourself with what matters to you and are rewarded by the external, life-changing effects of that.
"Harriet has great warmth, excellent listening skills, and a toolbox of suggestions that helped me to work through my complex work/personal issues. I have an increased level of confidence, an improved ability to say “no”, and a fuller understanding of my situation with clear steps to take positive actions. Harriet helped me to find my own answers and to trust myself."'Belinda' - NHS senior manager

I hope I will remember as the beginning of a long journey. The horses are like highly sensitive mirrors that produce copies of your internal feeling landscape. and do it with a sense of play and extraordinary generousity and gentleness.
