George Swingler is a Life and Transition Coach who offers a safe and non-judgmental place for you to find your own answers

How I work: Summary

I provide a safe place for you to think and feel, and find your own answers

My coaching approach overlaps that of counselling, and is based on empathic, authentic and non-judgemental acceptance, drawing on methods from the Thinking Environment. Within that environment I tailor a range of techniques and tools to your needs.

But, primarily, I listen. When I do talk, I mostly ask questions to help you think and find your own answers. You decide what success will look like and you take primary responsibility for getting there. I'll offer my own insights and perspectives only after you have had time to come up with your own ideas. For me a session is successful if your thoughts and decisions are better than my own would have been.

If there is no easy or immediate answer, I’m ready to sit with you in the discomfort while you search, and perhaps wait, for a way.

I'm most able to help people who are;
  • looking for direction, purpose or vocation;
  • facing difficult circumstances, and want to come through the experience in a way that brings renewal;
  • wanting to grow into the people they were meant to be;
  • medical practitioners and/or academics who need a safe space to talk with someone who’s ‘been there’, to;
    • check where they are in life or career, and adjust as needed;
    • talk through the demands and challenges of their circumstances;
    • maintain professional development;
    • avoid stagnation and burnout;
    • consider career changes within or outside their profession.
