Coaching Philosophy

Bella’s coaching philosophy is integrated: if a theory or a tool works, it is used, and is always tailored to the individual she is working with. Her success comes from years of rigorous training in psychology, client-centred/psychodynamic counselling, and specialised career theory knowledge (with application to practice). She ascribes to the ideas of Patton and McMahon’s System Theory Framework (1995, 1999, 2006, 2014) which looks at how we learn about careers from the variety of complex systems (perspectives) around us, and how this can influence and increase our understanding of the career choices we make.
