It occurred to me last night, that many of the people on face book that have liked my business may not know or understand what Life Coaching is. So I thought it’s probably time to rectify that.
Life Coaching is a relatively new field of personal development which is very forward focused. It’s largely based on the principles of Positive Psychology and assists people to achieve their goals and become happier within themselves. Esssentially my role as a Coach is to help people see what’s possible for them, often breaking down their self limitations on the way. Coaching is simply a one on one conversation where I assist clients to explore options, see things from a different perspective and help them take action. It’s a safe, supportive, encouraging environment where there is no advice give, just great questions asked to help the client find the best answer for themselves.
A client may come to me feeling like they are just not on track with their lives, they may not be unhappy specifically, but are just feeling like they aren’t living up to their own expectations or achieving their potential. We start off mapping out their life now, what they like, what’s working for them, and of course what’s not working and what needs to change. Then we set about planning how they’d like it to be and bridge the gap between where they are , and the life they want to create. It’s such a privilege to see clients grow, learn and achieve their goals, and become more self confident and happy along the way.
Life Coaching is a wonderful profession and if you’re interested in trying out coaching for yourself, I offer the first hour free so we can meet and you can get a feel for how it works and what’s possible for you. No cost, no obligation, just a new experience.
