Coaching for business success has developed as a set of solution-oriented strategies that focuses on opportunities to
enhance the professional effectiveness of a person, team and/or organisation. There are many similarities between counselling
and the way coaching is applied, and the techniques of coaching borrow extensively from positive psychology and sport
psychology.  Therefore, Geoffs experience as a counsellor and sports psychologist enhances his ability to explore all the issues
for a client in their chosen vocation as well aspects of their personal life that are essential for sustained performance.

There are perhaps three themes to the issues Geoff is consulted on:
