What Is Personal Coaching?
Coaching is different to counselling. It’s a goal-orientated process which helps you move from where you are now to where you want to be. Turning ideas into action, it’s a transformative process which empowers you to identify and implement your goals through a series of strategic questions. If we touch on your past, it’s as a springboard to further your future goal.
Does A Personal Coach Tell You What To Do?
While I’m happy to give input as part of the session, if requested, my role as a coach is not to tell you what to do. I’m more of a sounding board, providing a structure through which you identify what you really want. And while this may sound counterintuitive, it makes a lot of sense because when you ask others for advice, they often tell you what you should do, failing to identify what you really want to do, whether a well-meaning parent, best friend, colleague or partner.
Why Is The Coaching Method Effective?
How can a coach who doesn’t know you, help you? Because even identical twins are incredibly different, with different instincts and drivers. When these are effectively and objectively extracted, you start moving beyond what you think you should be doing towards what makes you truly happy. This is when you start making powerful decisions which will open your life in ways you couldn’t imagine.
What Can I Help You With?
I specialise in a variety of areas including:
- Confidence coaching;
- Relationship coaching; and
- Career coaching.
Within these areas, I’ve helped clients to achieve goals ranging from choosing a new career and homeland, how to better manage stress, how to increase confidence, how to move on from relationship breakdown and divorce and how to get a new business off the ground. You can find some testimonials further down the page if you’d like a little more insight.
I also assist with values elicitation which involves identifying a shortlist of principles which drive you. These could range from family, meeting new people and learning to creativity, travel or financial security. It sounds simple but so many of us find ourselves feeling conflicted at certain points in our lives without really understanding why, whether in respect of careers, partnerships which don’t feel quite right or environments which make us feel uneasy.
Why bother with the values stuff, you might ask.
Once you’ve identified your values, you can see exactly why you’ve made the decisions you have in life, why some have been extremely fulfilling and others frustrating or upsetting. Not only does this bring peace of mind, clarifying past chapters in your life but once you have clarity on what makes you tick, you can make future decisions with real confidence, whether choosing a new career, making better romantic choices or deciding where to live. It really can be life-changing and is an incredible toolkit for life.
Where Did I Train?
I qualified as a Life Coach with The Coaching Academy, the world’s largest training organisation for coaches. Prior to that I worked as a family lawyer in London which I found incredibly rewarding but for the lack of work life balance.
I’m passionate about harnessing my own experiences – personal, professional and spiritual – to help you design your life in a way which brings you true happiness - your version of it, your way.
Because while we’re all beautifully unique, no matter how different we may seem, we all operate within a similar framework of happiness. We are frustrated when we live our lives at odds with our values and we are set free when we learn what makes us tick. Once we identify what makes us happy and reshape our lives in accordance with these values, life becomes a whole lot less stressful and a whole lot more fulfilling.
How Much Does My Coaching Cost?
