|How would you describe Shirley 's coaching style? Warm, agile, very present, supportive.|
|What did Shirley do which worked particularly well for you? I'd say being respectful of where I am in my own life, my world view, and how difficulties arise in my life. Sometimes not going the traditional ICF way (ie "what would you like to get from this session?" - sometimes this question is hard to answer) was particularly useful. I also enjoyed her work around metaphors, very powerful.|
