Description
Hey there,

My name is Natalia. I am here to offer pro bono coaching to whoever needs it. I believe that we are all doing the best that we can and that we all have the potential to do better. I would love to help you do that. The way I like to work is by trying to give people as much space as they need, to tap into their own potential to do better. I work with a couple of different approaches, always trying my best to be transparent about what I am doing in a session.

A little bit about my background. I have a bachelors and master's degree in psychology and I have finished my 1st year of a 2 year coaching program. In my job, I explore patterns of behaviours and thinking within organisations to understand their strengths and weaknesses, and help them meet their potential. I have also finished a Thinking Partnership course, where I was taught how to put the client at the center, by doing the best listening possible, enabling their thinking and helping them reframe deeply held, limiting beliefs.

You can reach out via email and/or phone. I would love to hear from you!

Cheers,
Natalia



 

My Coach Training and Experience
I am following a 2 year coaching program that takes place in The Hague (the Netherlands). The program is from The Coaching and Counselling Institute (The ICCI) and we are learning to use the Person Centered approach to coaching. At the moment, I have given 5 coaching sessions to 1 client and have practiced coaching many hours with my peers. I am offering offering my coaching services for free, at the moment, as part of my training.

The person-centred approach to coaching (also know as the humanistic approach) is based on the work of Carl Rogers. The approach is based on two foundational premises:

1) People are their own best experts and therefore best placed to understand their own perceptions and make their own decisions.
2) The natural human tendency is to strive towards self-actualisation, meaning that we are driven to be the best that we can be.

The role of the coach is to encourage the coachee to come up with their own suggestions and decisions, and to support them in removing any obstacles to their growth and development.

The coach helps the client reach growth by following the following 3 practices:
1) Congruence – the coach is genuine and authentic.
2) Empathy – the coach feels and demonstrates empathy.
3) Unconditional Positive Regard – the coach has a warm, positive acceptant attitude, without placing any judgment.
