About Barbara Bassa
My approach to coaching
As a coach I help people develop mental and emotional resilience to navigate through change and to achieve transformational results.
My practice is underpinned by current leadership and management theory and practice, psychology and neuroscience.
I use communication enhancing models such as Fierce Conversations®, Non-Violent Communication® and Neurolinguistic programming.
I am an accredited mindfulness practitioner.
My style is facilitative and supportive.
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 leadership 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 achievement and excitement.
What I can help with?
My coaching will help you:
· Increase your confidence and personal impact
· Gain balance in all aspects of your life
· Progress or change your career
· Build effective teams at work
· Excel as a leader and manager
· Align your professional success with your life purpose
· Communicate and influence more effectively
· Increase your motivation and creativity
What do my clients say 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
“Barbara is a profound, intuitive and able to cut to the heart of the matter coach and a wonderful person. I really appreciate her ability to challenge me in a way that asks just the right questions to stimulate new thinking”
Auriel Majumdar, owner of I am Auriel consultancy
“I have had the privilege of working with Barbara as my coach. At a time when I felt vulnerable, I was struck by her ability to engage me and develop a person centred compassionate relationship which felt both safe and containing. As time and trust progressed we have engaged in a number of both “fierce” and reflective conversations which whilst been challenging have enabled me to remain engaged with my own clinical training and continue to meet my academic demands.
Barbara clearly demonstrates extensive knowledge and experience and is able to apply these to a vast array of situations as needed. Personally and professionally I have grown as a result of my work with Barbara and am sometimes surprised by how often I draw on our conversations in my day to day life. I am not sure I would be in the position of almost completing training if not for our work together.”
