STRENGTHS-BASED COACHING & PSYCHOLOGY
Hi, I'm Kirsten Cottone and I help individuals and organisations build flourishing lives and workplaces.
But, for now, let's just pause to acknowledge you!
Why?......Because the science of positive psychology tells us that positive change begins when we identify what is already working well - our strengths.
To help us get started, I'm offering a super discounted strengths-analysis session, so that I can get to know you better. At $27, it won't break the bank, we'll get to meet (one-on-one), and it is a proven diagnostic tool to work out your next steps (without years of therapy).
If you've already worked with an evidence-based strengths test, feel free to scroll down to see other ways I can help you. Otherwise, I highly recommend going beyond your hunches and uncovering the best parts of yourself today. I look forward to meeting you soon.
AT A GLANCE
My passion is positive change, in all of its complexity, and over the years I've noticed that separating out the human experience rarely works.
Let's face it, if we gain wellbeing through pleasure-seeking, but we're not performing in the world, or if we work ourselves to the bone and our creative spirit dries up, something will ultimately break.
In response to this, I've developed The Optimum Mindset™ - a complete system that builds your wellbeing, creativity and performance, so that by the end of our time together, you will feel balanced and back in sync with yourself and the world.
The Optimum Mindset™ System
There has to be a better term than "life coach"!
I use it because it is part of the zeitgeist, but the work I do is so much more than setting goals and holding you accountable.
I'm a big believer in using scientifically proven processes, and I equally believe that people make the most rapid change when sessions are experiential, rather than just talking about the issue.........forever.
To achieve this, I use a blend of positive psychology, neuroscience and creative coaching, because it really is the fastest way to get you lasting results. Through these practices, I work with you as a whole person, so that you actually notice a shift within.
Here are just a few of the things you might experience from a session with me:
~ Being heard at the deepest level.
~ Full engagement with your whole being.
~ Insightful perceptions that you won't have noticed about yourself or your workplace before.
~ Uninhibited FUN! (If it's really hard work, it's not likely to stick).
~ Dissolving of blocks.
~ Speedy, yet lasting results.

20 YEARS EXPERIENCE
I come with 20 years experience facilitating change. With a background in stage performance, education and professional development, I have a reservoir of tried-and-tested tools to help you move forward.
I have a Master of Applied Positive Psychology from The University of Melbourne, graduating with First Class Honours and as Valedictorian of the cohort. When you engage me, you will always be getting the highest standard of excellence!
No part of us exists in isolation. I take a holistic approach to positive change, making your results faster and more sustainable than most other techniques.
The research is clear. We need creativity to live a vibrant, happy life (this goes for organisations too). The research also shows that we learn best when having FUN! The Optimum Mindset™ takes all of this and helps you access your own creative brain-zones. It's fun, completely non-threatening and will help you (or your organisation) come to life.
Theory and knowledge only work if they are translated through practical wisdom. Together, we will identify your specific requirements and achieve your desired goals.
