Some years ago, when I was a member of the ICF, and Ambassador for the Gothenburg Chapter of ICF, I wrote about what coaching might look and sound like from an educator's point of view; and published my thoughts in an interactive website mostly for fun, but also with the hope that some educators would find the website and get in touch with coaching (and me?).
More recently, I was 'clearing out' my websites and realised that there was potentially a book contained in that website.
Re-reading the material I felt that it needed another person's perspective for the book to be more complete. So, I sent a request to the Universe (some call that prayer), asking for support from an experienced teacher or head teacher who is ICF certified and has their own company and wants to focus on coaching in education. It's always best to be clear when speaking to the Universe.
Three days after I sent out the request, Andrea Robson contacted me.
My name is Andrea Robson. I have been in primary education for 20 years, including Headship, and have recently taken part in Dr Clare Beckett’s CoachME programme. I am very close to being certified and hope to have completed the ICF accreditation by September of this year.
I have recently become self-employed here on the Costa del Sol in Spain. My dream is to work with children, families and teachers to use coaching to enable children and families to achieve goals, solve problems and reach their aspirations.
Thank you Universe.
