About Barbara Bassa

My approach to coaching

As a coach I help people develop mental, emotional, physical and spiritual resilience to navigate through change and transition and to achieve transformational results.

I use well-researched coaching theory and practice, psychology of achievement, positive psychology, solution-focused approaches, goal mapping and communication enhancing models such as Fierce Conversations® and Non-Violent Communication®.

I also tap into techniques from Neurolinguistic programming, Emotional Freedom Technique, family constellations, mindfulness, Sivananda Vedanta Yoga and training from Sweet Medicine Sundance Path.

My style is facilitative and supportive. I say how things are, which people find refreshing, empowering and inspirational.

My inspiration to become a counsellor/coach/mediator

I have always been fascinated by human psychology – what drives us, what makes us strive for more and overcome seemingly insurmountable challenges?

Working as a business consultant and staff developer, I have had many opportunities to talk to people, challenge their thinking, open their minds to new possibilities, transform their feelings and energise their vision. Seeing people reaching for more and achieving outstanding results gives me a real sense of thrill and satisfaction. Coaching is my passion.

Clients I work with

Both individual and corporate clients

This is what some of my clients said about my work:

“Barbara is a natural, intuitive coach who sees the bigger picture in what you are saying and instinctively knows when to question and challenge your beliefs and assumptions. She is excellent at working out the level of challenge that will move you forward in your thinking and she gives you plenty of space to reflect deeply on the issues you are considering. I got a lot out of my coaching sessions with Barbara and the results are still with me months later. I would definitely recommend her to others.”

Clare Manning, Coach, Mediator, Trainer & Facilitator

“Thank you so much for your support over the last year. You have completely transformed the way I approach work, learning, life! Surprisingly, even though this is the last year of my degree, it has been the least stressful one. And a lot of that is due to what you have taught me about managing my own expectations and approach. I am very grateful!”
