Our approach is called integral development coaching because it engages with the whole of a person's life.

Our inquiry spans everything from how they see and represent themselves, to their social world, habits, relationship with the body, quality of self-care, and the capacity they have to make change.

It draws on deep philosophical roots as well as biology, cognitive science, linguistics, psychology, spirituality and more, providing many avenues of insight and practice.

Our two-day Foundations of Coaching course, offered in partnership with New Ventures West, introduces the principles and methods of integral development coaching through structured exercises, demonstrations and practice.

Foundations of Coaching was a significant and gently transformative experience for me. Such a beautiful course. I got a taste of what it is to be held in a carefully designed and robust structure, delivered and supported with such sensitivity and skill.
— Amanda Maffett, Integral development coach
