People want coaching for lots of different reasons…
I help you to focus on where YOU want to go in your work, dance, relationships and/or life, and work with you to create it, busting through blockages to create happiness, fulfillment and love.
My role as a coach is to be your guide, to help you to navigate life’s up and downs. Lots of people know exactly what they don’t want, not so many what they do. I will help you to get comfortable with working out where you want to go so that we can make it a reality, together.
How does it all work?
Coaching is mostly done over the phone, or via Skype, so there is little down time for you. Session generally run for about an hour.
However, they are sometimes combined in to a two hour session.
Mostly fortnightly, but sometimes less frequently. Or more often
It depends on what YOU need, because my coaching is all about you.
Is it confidential?
YES – absolutely. I will never pass on information to another party about you. Part of the trust that I provide is that guarantee.
Why should I work with you?
I know that you are wondering, and it’s a good thing to wonder, because that means that you’ve already considered how important prioritising you is.
The learnings, insights and understandings that you will take from coaching are things that will stay with you forever. They are things that you can instill in your kids as well. Just imagine what having some really cool ‘life tools’ would mean to them?
Or even better, imagine how you being a true example of confidence, excellence and motivation, with freedom from stress and fear would change your communication and relationships with them and everyone, absolutely everyone around you?
So as you’re here, reading this, it really starts to sink in just how important looking after you actually is.Because you is more than just you, isn’t it?
Mostly we should work together because you’re worth it. Because it’s your time to shine. Because this one decision will change the course of your life. Make the decision.
What is coaching?
Ask any coach and they will tell you this:
Coaching is a conversation like no other.
A life coach’s job is to help you overcome fear and self-doubt.
As a coach I help you set meaningful goals so you can create a life on your terms. Our singular most important goal is to help you close the gap between where you are and where you want to be much faster than you can by yourself.
We do this in several ways:
- Through removing you from the stories we tell themselves;
- By helping you disassociate with the reasons we “can’t”;
- By helping you set and look forward to achieving new goals;
- By helping you to create empowering beliefs and attitudes.
A coach is open to change and is ready to listen to you – and even more than that, is also genuinely curious and cares about your well-being. A coach usually wants to constantly improve and use all the resources available to help you. A coach is always ready to take risks and stretch outside the comfort zone.
A little history about coaching
Until the late 80’s, there were some people who’d go to see either a psychotherapist or an analyst to help them overcome a specific problem such as giving up smoking or beating depression.
It was soon discovered that a lot of these “patients” didn’t have a “condition”– they just felt that their lives were a little off balance. Some therapists started to deal solely with these clients and this branched off into a new industry known as Life Coaching.
There are 30,000 coaches in the world, and that’s growing daily. As a coach, we help you seek in areas such as goal-setting, getting better results, understanding what you really want, aiming for a more fulfilled, richer life among other things.
But let’s address the elephant in the room.
*Does coaching really work?*
Let me put it this way, if it didn’t, there would be no coaches, and the industry would be shrinking instead of growing. Simple logic, yes?
Is coaching same as therapy, counselling and mentoring?
Most coaches get asked this a lot, “Isn’t coaching is really like therapy or counselling, or even mentoring?”
The short answer? Nope.
Let me explain why. Patients seeking therapy and/or counselling usually have a problem arising from a specific incident, condition or trauma.
A coaching client usually has no experience of these. Many clients are successful, fulfilled people already and they are now looking to raise the bar, experience even more success and become more effective at what they already do well.
A therapist or counsellor usually starts with the client’s past to find the solution to an existing condition. A coach, on the other hand, draws a line in the sand and starts with the present and the future.
Mentoring has similarities to coaching but there is a fundamental difference. A mentor is experienced in a particular area and knows the answers. Think of a mentor as a teacher; a coach as a guide.
A typical coaching session
There are no ‘typical’ coaching sessions, because it is up to you and your coach to create a positive and conducive atmosphere to growth; one that allows you to achieve what you need to so that you can move forward, and you can constantly learn and grow.
Within a session, a coach may take a number of roles in order to suit your needs. Some of these roles include being the Facilitator who helps you with your goals in a straightforward way allowing you to make your own decisions, or perhaps the Inspirer who helps you stay on course.
