Is Transformational Coaching different to other types of coaching?

Coaching is an approach to human development which has enormous potential, wherever you are on your life’s journey. As we grow in awareness and consciousness, we are called to live more purposefully, to set goals and aspirations, to realize our potential and to take responsibility for creating meaningful and fulfilling lives.

Most coaching approaches support people to move beyond current limitations and ‘stuckness’ to move into a space of clarity and expanded possibilities. The focus of coaching is often solution focused; goal-oriented and explores the realm of ‘doing’ something different, changing behavioural patterns with respect to the goal to be achieved. This type of coaching can sometimes be called ‘transactional or developmental coaching’. This type of coaching is hugely valuable and beneficial for people who want to make positive changes in their life and work.

Transformational coaching is an approach that is more about ‘Being’ than ‘doing’. Deep Transformational coaching supports people to dive below the surface and explore the inner world of ‘who I am’ and ‘who I choose to be’. The intent of Transformational Coaching is to get to the essence, to the heart of the matter, to explore new ways of being and discover what it takes to embody them.
