Full Name Sonal Solanki
Experience I have over 12 years of commercial experience from the insurance industry focusing in the areas of claims management, sales and marketing, underwriting, customer service and people management. I also have close to 3 years of end to end recruitment experience to a wide variety of roles within the insurance industry. In addition to this I have a through understanding of theoretical framework and practice of psychotherapy which facilitates an innate passion for coaching and mentoring within the corporate arena.

With exceptional interpersonal skills and an inherent aptitude for fostering strong relationships with client at all levels and I have received substantial positive feedback from my key recruitment clients, candidates as well as coaching clients.

Within my role as a Recruitment Consultant, I provided a comprehensive; results driven recruitment solution to my clients. This included ascertaining a clear understanding of the client’s organisational, cultural and technical needs and then sourcing the right candidate for the organisation and the role. Inclusive in this process, I offered interview coaching, job coaching and career counselling to my candidates.

I hold a Bachelor of Applied Social Science majoring in psychotherapy and possess broad experience in a clinical counselling environment with a strong focus in the area of mental illness, relationship and family issues and career management and change. Alongside this I am a capable Career Management Coach.

As a Psychotherapist I have provided the following:

•Evaluating and assessing the clients issues, needs and their desired outcomes

•Sound understanding of their psychological issues

•Working with the client in a collaborative manner to formulate the best therapeutic plan based on the client’s needs

•Providing a safe “person centered” environment where the client is given the respect and the space to see their issues in a different light, thus creating change

I believe that personal core values are the true essences that create the distinctiveness of each person and they build the foundation upon which each individual operates from. Having an in-depth understanding of one’s personal core values enables an individual to gain self-awareness that assists in change. My professional goal is to work closely with clients in a synergistic manner in understanding their core values and to establish equilibrium between their career goals and personal goals. My fundamental objective is to enable clients to better manage work place challenges, increase job satisfaction and ultimately improve productivity while staying true to their values.

Therefore my aim as a Coach is to support each client in acquiring a deeper understanding of their motivations, desires, goals and values at both a professional and personal level. This process is created through the fostering of a solid rapport, empathetic and transparent dialog developed over a series of bespoke goal oriented sessions. The sessions aim to cultivate a deep and holistic understanding of the individual’s personal and business environment, and will create an opportunity for professional success which has a flow on affect to personal areas of life as well.
