My Ontological Approach
Briliantly described by Alan Sieler, “Ontological coaching focuses on the way of being of clients. Way of being is regarded as central to how people learn, function and change and is considered to be the underlying driver of behaviour and communication, for it is where an individual’s perceptual patterns and attitudes exist, many of which can be deep-seated and out-of-awareness.
Ontological coaching seeks to respectfully facilitate the transformation of being, which can include deep change, resulting in the client: (i) becoming a very different observer of themself and the world, (ii) significant behavioural change, including relating more constructively with others and (iii) expanding what is possible in how they create their future. “
