Ethics and Confidentiality
I work with everyone and believe, fully and sincerely in their worth, brilliance and potential. I embrace the joy of difference and welcome it fully: be that race, colour, ancestry, religion, gender, national origin, sexual orientation, age, citizenship, lifestyle, marital status, disability, intelligence, skill, talent, criminal history, profession, opinion, education. I am committed to building and developing a diverse, equitable and inclusive coaching and training practice. To support me I draw on coaching supervision as a ‘mirror’ to regularly push myself out of my comfort zone and challenge my perspectives. I try my very best to always put the client, and their needs front and centre of the coaching partnership and in the training ‘classroom’. I am totally committed to the welfare of the client and come to every session fully prepared and deeply committed to the client’s needs. Should I not be the right coach or trainer/facilitator for the client I am fully committed to supporting them to find another coach/trainer or other solution, to meet their needs better at this time. The client, in all their diversity, comes first.
To help ensure the coaching and training partnership stays on track and aligned to this guarantee, all clients may be asked to sign a Coaching Agreement which adheres to the EMCC Global Code of Ethics. I am a Member of EMCC and accredited as a Coach at Senior Practitioner Level while participating in coaching supervision, continuous professional development and adhering to the Council’s Code of Ethics.
Finally, from 12th January, 2021, I am proud to be the holder of the UDL Digital Badge for Universal Design in Teaching and Learning. This means that when I design and deliver my workshops, coaching and learning initiatives I apply international UDL guidelines to maximise learning for all participants: promoting diversity, inclusivity and equity.
“To be kind is more important than to be right. Many times what people need is not a brilliant mind that speaks but a special heart that listens”
