Meet Our Team
Hi there. I am Christine Walter, founder of the Australia and New Zealand Coaching Alliance. You will probably have already read about the reason the Alliance was started, and no doubt, be curious about the people behind it. Well, if you are a member or considering to be a member then you are one of those people!
I started coaching a number of years ago. I joined a well known not for profit organisation and found, throughout my 20-year journey with them, that I could actually coach people. I also discovered that I am absolutely passionate about coaching! My whole purpose then, as it is now, is to help people to discover their sense of purpose, their passion and most of all, their own innate resources that they already have.
I am driven by a mixture of Chaos Theory and ripple effect – neither are poles apart and in fact, I succinctly operate within them both. To my way of thinking the ripple effect may sound more organised than chaos. Having said that they also say that in chaos regular patterns of order occur, so I stand by my statement – I operate between the two. What I do know about both, is that the knock-on effect continues long after the movement has been started and that, to me, is coaching!
What I have learnt through my journey of life is that life happens. Events or people naturally create an impact on our own life (if it isn’t creating an impact, then potentially the person isn’t ‘living’). And it isn’t the event or the person that makes the difference, it is what we permit it to do to us that creates the difference.
Aldus Huxley once said, “experience is not what happens to you, it is what you do with what happens to you.” I like this perspective, it gives us back the control; it gives us that all important choice.
I have my own practice in Auckland. I also hold my own training courses as well as contract to train.
We are all different and thank goodness for that. Some people will resonate with what I have just said, others will want to know my credentials. So, for the latter group, here are the main ones:
- Master Practitioner in Neuro Linguistic Programming
- Train the trainer certification in NLP
- Diploma in Clinical and Advanced Hypnotherapy
- Breakthrough Life Coaching
- Abundance Coaching
- MBIT – Multiple Brain Integration Techniques
I mentioned at the top that you may well be one of the people behind Australia and New Zealand Coaching Alliance. That is because I consider myself to be part of a team. Our tag line, ‘realising our potential together’ is exactly the position I am operating from. Your feedback is important and I have a small team of people that I consult as well.
Through the Alliance, ANZCAL, my aim is to support anyone who coaches people for transformation and breakthroughs. I want all of you out there assisting others to find their passion, purpose and internal resources to know there is an organisation here who understands.
I look forward to you joining us. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions or would like to know more. Please spread the word so we can really get out there and do great things together.
Cheers for now.
