  • Life, personal & business coaching is in both English, or French. NLP (neuro-linguistic programming) techniques are often used with coaching tools, counselling & personal development.
  • Orientation (OBCA) is a great process that taps into what is of value to you today. An NLP process benchmarks this, noting any ‘blind spots’ in your beliefs. It aims to reveal your current & life mission. Profiling (language & behavior) assesses where you will be happiest and most productive. A personalised benchmark analysis & report powerfully helps further define your direction & meet your goal.
  • Techniques are discussed to manage stress more effectively by: identifying and correcting stress triggers; stress counselling; guided meditation.
  • Workshops & coaching days are customised to include your choices e.g. creative visioning - active steps to your future; guided meditation; inner child work; time line work; stress management; coaching & NLP.
  • Monaco Coaching & Strategies is committed to giving you a valuable service. All enquiries and sessions are bound by strict code of ethics and confidentiality.

”I sought out Joanne's coaching advice during a difficult period in my life when I was faced with both professional and personal questions. I found Joanne to be very professional, yet also very approachable. Using various methods, she helped me to gain incite into my work habits, to organize my time and to create space in my life for the things that truly mattered. Above all, I appreciated Joanne's flexibility and willingness to approach my issues from several different angles. I highly recommend Joanne to anyone who is seeking a bit of guidance, be professional or personal.”
