What is Coaching?

Coaching is not telling you what to do; it is partnering with you as a thinking-partner, provoking a creative process that inspires you to holistically maximize your potential. 

It’s about supporting you as you gain clarity and positioning you to evaluate your current realities in the light of your goals, dreams, values and intentions. Coaching helps you discover new choices, decisions, skillsets and actions that lead to sustainable transformation.

The process of coaching often unlocks previously untapped sources of imagination, productivity and leadership. We all have goals we want to reach, challenges we’re striving to overcome and times when we feel stuck. You are 95% more likely to achieve your goals with the help of a coach.

What are your Pledge of Ethics?

I am a member of the International Federation of Coaches (IFC) and as a professional coach, I acknowledge and honor my ethical obligations to my coaching clients and colleagues and to the public at large.

I pledge to comply with ICF Standards of Ethical Conduct, to treat people with dignity as free and equal human beings, and to model these standards with those whom I coach.

If I breach this Pledge of Ethics or any ICF Standards of Ethical Conduct, I agree that the ICF in its sole discretion may hold me accountable for so doing. I further agree that ICF’s holding me accountable for my breach may include loss of my ICF Membership or my ICF Certification.  View ICF full Code of Ethics Here

What are the benefits of coaching?

As you engage in a coaching relationship, you can expect to experience fresh perspectives on personal challenges and opportunities, enhanced thinking and decision making skills, enhanced interpersonal effectiveness, and increased confidence in carrying out your various roles.

In alignment with your level of commitment to grow, you can also expect to see noticeable transformation in the areas of productivity, personal satisfaction, and the achievement of personally relevant goals.

Do you guarantee the privacy of my information?

Absolutely! MDA guarantees to never use or share your information for any purposes beyond what we agree.  We will not share anything you say without getting your permission first.

While we look forward to receiving your testimonials and reviews, you can choose whether you want this information to stay confidential or not.

Do I need to sign a coaching contract?

Yes. On your side, a coaching agreement assures you feel that you will get quality service. On our side, it demonstrates your commitment, which is essential. The agreement sets out the terms and conditions for a successful delivery of the coaching service and for achieving results. MDA uses a simple but comprehensive agreement system as a good foundation for your coaching journey.

What are my payment options?

We make it easy for you.  You can pay by electronic funds transfer, PayPal Credit Card or Online Payment. Depending on the coaching service, you may be able to pay in installments.  Payment in full will at times be rewarded at a discount. 

A retainer of some kind is normally required.  For individual session booking, payment must be done before each session.  You will receive a payment receipt by email.

What is your refund policy?

I believe my clients are capable and I hold them accountable so that together we work for 100% satisfaction.  All payments are final. No refunds allowed.

Rev Abby Davidson, M.T.S

Pastor of Missional Discipleship Spring Garden Church

I have been a pastor for 7 years with the Canadian Baptists of Ontario and Quebec (CBOQ). Last year I was making a transition to a new church and thought it would be helpful tohave a coach as I entered a new setting. I heard Denise speak at an event put on by my denomination. I learned so much from her in that short time she was speaking that I followed up with her and asked her to do some coaching with me.

As a coach Denise is a good balance of loving and challenging. She is thorough and took a lot of time to get to know me and understand my ministry context. She challenged me personally as well as professionally.

She was able to provide me with many resources to help me as a leader but the most effective part of her coaching is the questions she asks. She has a gift of drawing out the important issues and creating space and dialogue for theological reflection.

I really enjoyed being coached by Denise and I know she made me a more effective leader as I started out in a new ministry role and context.

What I love most about my sessions with Rev Denise are that she listens and asks a lot of probing questions. I have lived a life in this world that can be a lot to hear and not once has Rev Denise joined me in my exhaustion.  She continues to encourage and challenge me.

I was completely lost and like “Amazing Grace”, she helped me be found. 

Sheryl-Lynn Codogan-Udeh

Sole-Support Parent

Rev Denise's insight, understanding, professionalism and ability to focus on the real issues in My Life Script, and her constant reminders for me to remain focused and “ interrogate my narrative” - has been central to my self-discovery and the path to healing and wholeness as a courageous, and competent African woman and leader.

Executive Director

“When I met Rev Denise, I knew right from the introductory session that she was the right coach for me.

We connected and bonded easily especially because not only was she so encouraging but she was equally vibrant and quickly dismantled the fears and apprehension that I had. She was also able to quickly identify the critical areas where she felt I needed clarity and support.”

Reverend Denise has a unique ability to use what she has learned from her decades of experience being at the forefront of successful ministry and community organization to accelerate her mentees and coaching clients past their limitations while encouraging them to make their vision a reality.
