Ontological Coaching

Ontological coaching is about discovering the context of a client’s experience to understand who they are being-in-the-world and the ways in which it limits what is possible for the client. The client’s default context or automatic way of being defines their perceptions and actions in each moment and these determine the structure and outcomes that the client experiences. Context is defined in the language of culture, upbringing, experiences, and emotional patterns of our lives. It is the lens through which we see the world and defines how we react to and interact with the world around us.

Ontological Coaching helps clients become aware of their current way of being and identifies the limitations this creates in the client’s life. Ontological Coaching aims to shift this context through new actions toward a vision; generating a new way of being where anything envisioned becomes possible. Ontological coaching is about shifting clients to a new way of being by generating insights and putting them into action.
