Generally, our coaches use a number of important psychological principles and applications in their coaching dialogue and engagement with the coachee.  Many of our coaches therefore have an eclectic approach and draw from a large pool of knowledge.  Here are some of the psychological principles that they would draw from, however while not being limited to them only:

  • How our past intrudes into our present
  • Transactional analysis (TA)
  • Our divided selves
  • Reframing:  Altering our perception of reality
  • Freud’s concept of defence mechanisms
  • Jung’s concept of our shadow side
  • Reward and punishment theory
  • Self-fulfilling prophecy
  • The Yerkes-Dodson Law:  Their implications for the Way we Live our Lives
  • Steven Covey’s “The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People”
  • Being more Emotionally Intelligent
  • Dealing with Conflict:  Getting out of the critical-controlling parent/rebellious child trap
  • Coping with Failure
  • Dealing with Guilt
  • Using our Time to the Full
  • Seeking Joy and having Fun
  • Etc.
