A coach usually facilitates the journey of self-discovery and empowerment by asking questions that draw out your own latent potential and understanding. A coaching paradigm presupposes that you - the client - is not a blank slate waiting passively for expert input, but an active and intentional partner in your own learning journey.
A consultant brings expertise knowledge in certain areas and imparts that knowledge to help you gain greater understanding of yourself and the journey you are on. A consultant-coach teaches, advises and facilitates to bring you clarity and understanding.
At Parrhesia | Integrō Formation, Ann uses her expertise in psychological instruments such as the MBTI® (The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator), MCODE™ (The Motivation Code), her knowledge of philosophy, spirituality, pedagogy and more than 12 years of pastoral experience in accompanying people on the spiritual journey to help you gain greater understanding about how you can grow personally and spiritually.
Ann's unique style to accompaniment is her ability to integrate and move between teaching, philosophy, spiritual accompaniment, coaching and consulting according to what is required by each client.
A crucial part of the journey to living a more authentic life is self-knowledge. We need to learn about our gifts and our limitations and how we can grow into the best versions of ourselves. We need to understand how to work with our design rather than against it.
Many of us labour under the notion that certain personality traits or gifts are inherently more desirable than others and we attempt to change who we are in the name of growth. Doing so is not only painful and unconstructive, it is also wounding to ourselves and others.
What empowers us is learning about our innate strengths and weaknesses and knowing how to leverage them in our personal growth, work, and relationships. There is no one-size fits all.
Developing an understanding of how we can accompany ourselves on a life-long journey of learning and growth to become our best selves is well worth the time, effort, and cost it takes. If you are interested in this journey, you can consider the following ways in which consultative-coaching can help you.
INTEGRATIVE LIFE CONSULTATION (ILC)
Are you feeling stuck in your spiritual and/or life journey? It does not matter if you are at the beginning of your faith journey or if you have been actively nurturing your spiritual life for years - we all enter seasons in which what had worked in the past no longer help us to grow.
An Exploratory Integrative Life Consultation helps you take a big picture overview of your life and/or spiritual journey thus far and helps you to identify what may be the high leverage points in this season of your life for growth and leaves you with a clearer sense of what a good 'next step' for you could be.
Integrative Life Consultation is not meant to take the place of spiritual direction, counseling/therapy or life coaching, but it can help you learn how to integrate the insights you learn from these other methods. It can also help you recognise if you could benefit from one or more of these valuable resources to get "unstuck" in your journey.
I offer a one-off Explorative Integrative Life Consultation session for new inquirers who wish to find out what their best 'next step' in the interior journey towards greater integration and authenticity might be, and which resources they could turn to.
The Clarity Consultative-Coaching Package is a 8-session foundational private coaching curriculum that is designed to empower you in listening to your life. I will teach you a simple framework of listening more deeply and becoming more self-aware of your interior landscape and bring you through the Motivation Code (MCODE)™ and in-depth MBTI® Step II assessments to clarify your unique motivational design, personality & temperament, and identify areas of misalignment in your life.
The last two sessions of this coaching package will be focused on helping you integrate what you have learned about yourself and identify effective 'next steps' to take in your quest for living an integrated and authentic life.
Interested in this package? Please book an Exploratory Integrative Life Consultation with me first so we can see if this is a good fit for you.
The whole world is poorer when we define giftedness and achievement too narrowly. The truth is that when we tap into our innate motivational drives, we are energised and perform at a much higher level than we could otherwise. Understanding our motivation can also help us identify why we might be feeling "stuck" in our careers, life-direction or spiritual journey.
Learn about the Motivation Code (MCODE)™, a unique assessment that combines the power of personal story and over 50 years of scientific research to help you learn more about your unique personal motivation theme. Visit www.motivationcode.com to read more about this instrument.
MCODE™ personal coaching is part of my foundational Clarity Consultative-Coaching Package.
MBTI STEP II®

Discover more about your cognitive preferences, what your blind-spots and stress-triggers are, and how you can turn the very inter-personal differences that drive you insane into assets for personal growth and relationship development.
