What is Coaching?

Coaching is the art and science of enhancing well-being and facilitating the performance, learning and development of clients with whom a Professional Coach has partnered in a thought-provoking and creative process that inspires them to maximize their personal and professional potential.  

A Professional Coach is certified and well skilled in enhancing subjective well-being and objective performance, in personal life and professional domains grounded in Positive Psychology and Coaching Psychology evidenced-based approaches, and proactive facilitation of human or organizational change.  Is trained to listen deeply, to observe thoroughly,  and to customize a unique approach to the clients needs. Seeks to elicit solutions and strategies from the client; believes the client is naturally creative, resilient and resourceful. The coach's job is to provide a supportive physical, mental and spiritual environment to enhance the skills, resources and creativity that the client already has.

Professional coaches provide an ongoing partnership designed to help clients produce fulfilling results in their personal and professional lives.  Coaches help people improve their performances and enhance the quality of their lives.

Dr. Aretoula Fullam, psychologist, with a strong background in human development, research and science, is a major force for the promotion of well-being, productivity and performance enhancement for the individual, for organizations and corporations and for the broader community as a whole. Her focus is in enhancing the well-being and goal attainment of normal, well-functioning adults who are motivated to move forward in their lives.

Individuals and business organizations can find in Dr. Fullam's coaching and mentoring expertise techniques that enhance life experience, and performance.  Human strengths and competencies, optimal functioning and aspects of the human condition that lead to happiness, fulfillment and flourishing are the bedrock of her approach.  Dr. Fullam, skillful and experienced professional coach and mentor knows when to move across the ask-tell dimension, knows when to promote self-discovery and when to give expert-based authoritative or specialized information, to facilitate self-directed learning and growth, the core of the coaching relationship.

Dr. Fullam does not use a "box of tricks" from the human potential movement. She is using well researched psychological principles and processes founded on the science of psychology, optimal human development and functioning, and Positive and Coaching Psychology, that lead and contribute to the flourishing,  or optimal functioning of individuals, groups and organizations (institutions), focusing on the "grand vision."

Are you ready to move beyond the zero point?


I could not have worked with a better coach over the last year or so.  I first met Dr. Fullam when I took the Silva Mind Control Class.  I was so excited about everything I had learned from the class, but felt like I needed a little extra help in applying what I had learned.  At the time I started the coaching, I was pretty miserable in just about every aspect of my life.  I think the worst part was that I felt like life was just hopeless and that’s a pretty dark place to be.  Dr. Fullam was there for me every step of the way, often going way above and beyond to help and support me.  I cannot say enough about her style of coaching and the level of commitment that I experienced.  As I worked with Dr. Fullam, things fell into place in a way that I would not have believed before my Silva class & her coaching.

What I’ve learned from Dr. Fullam has changed my life and I can’t speak highly enough about her abilities to teach, to coach, and to care.
