“Happiness is not something you postpone for the future; it is something you design for the present” – Jim Rohn
Do you want a focused, structured way to change your life into the life you want?
Do you know what you want but feel held back by family responsibilities or other restrictions?
Maybe you haven’t got a clue what to do – but know things have to change.
As a life coach I know things CAN change. And if you follow the right plan for you, things WILL change! Whether it’s your career, your relationships or your self-esteem, coaching can increase confidence, motivation and enthusiasm, and inspire the clear thinking needed to achieve your goals.
How Life Coaching Works
Life coaching is an efficient, future-focused and positive way to achieve what you want. It begins by identifying exactly what your ideal goal is. Then we look at making this as realistic and possible as we can – more things are possible than you think! You may not realise how many resources you already have, nor how much you are already doing that’s positive. Finally you decide what you can change to start moving towards your goal – and make a commitment to doing it.
You can come for as many or as few sessions as you like. An enormous amount can be done in only one session. More sessions widens out what you can achieve. You may achieve even more than you set out to.
In coaching sessions I will not look into the past, other than where it’s essential to plan the future, nor will I focus on emotions. My background in counselling is useful, however, because if coaching triggers unexpected emotions, I am qualified to deal with them, rather than having to refer you to a counsellor. We can then get back to the original coaching plan as quickly as possible.
Coaching for parents
I have a particular interest in helping parents achieve goals that many people might write off as not being possible with children, whether that’s starting businesses, travelling the world or any kind of life change that goes against the conventional expectations for parents. Often we are told we need to be careful, “settle down” and feel we must restrict our ambitions “for the sake of the children”. I firmly believe that following your dreams and achieving ambitions is the best example to set your children, and that this doesn’t have to have a negative impact on them. I am happy to accommodate under 5s in initial coaching sessions (toys/pens/paper supplied!) and often in ongoing sessions, depending on the content.
