The purpose of this paper is to outline how a Gestalt approach to coaching which makes use of the paradoxical theory of change can lead to personal growth and development.
Provides an overview of the key concepts of paradoxical coaching and a case study to illustrate the method.
The application of the paradoxical theory of change accesses the personal change process of the coachee and leads to improved performance.
The article provides an alternative perspective to the more widespread behaviorally‐based coaching approaches.
