Coaching is about change, from where we are to where we want to be. As a coach trained in ontological coaching, Idot is particularly interested in helping people observe, and finally shift, their way of being, as manifested in the domains of language, emotions and body. It is a holistic approach to help the human self adapt for competence in dealing with the environment.
In her coaching and facilitation, Idot uses many tools to enhance clients’ self observation and awareness. Conversation being a major one. Bodywork is another. Creative expression is however Idot’s favourite tool. Creative expression taps quickly into one’s intuitive wisdom and the unconscious. When inner voices are externalised, one can connect seemingly unrelated signs and information, and see possibilities for new perspectives and solutions.
Before becoming a coach and facilitator, Idot has spent over 20 years in marketing with global companies. This experience provides a good foundation for trust and empathy with corporate clients. On the other hand, her biggest personal breakthrough was, with no formal art training, realizing her passion for expressive art painting. Her personal transformation has inspired her confidence in the untapped wealth of human potential.
Idot follows Alan Sieler of Newfield Institute, Australia, on Ontological Coaching, and Lisa Wynn & Zoran Todorovic on Evolutionary Coaching. She coaches individual clients on professional and life topics. Idot is a Level 3 Accredited Facilitator of the Association of Facilitators, and an Advanced Practitioner of Artgym. She conducts experiential workshops for corporate clients to enhance team collaboration, leadership and creativity. Her clients include Cisco, Leapstack, Geberit, dormakaba and Kohler. She also hosts colour workshops for individuals seeking to develop intuitive power using colours to connect with their authentic self.
Born and raised in Hong Kong, Idot currently lives in Shanghai. She speaks fluent English, Mandarin, Cantonese and some basic French.
