Coaching Style

Mandy has a pragmatic, holistic approach to coaching. Her focus is
firmly on the client’s agenda assisting others to achieve their goals;
cutting through limiting beliefs and assumptions and helping them to
enhance their self-belief and awareness.
Sessions are relaxed and supportive, led by the client and their
agenda, but guided by a coaching model. Building rapport and
contracting is the first stage of the process, and face-to-face meetings  are followed up with email support.
