What is Life Coaching?

Life Coaching is a designed alliance between coach and client where the coaching relationship continually gives all the power back to you, the client. We coaches believe that you know the answers to every question or challenge you may have in your life, even if those answers appear to be obscured, concealed or hidden inside.

You, the client, are the only expert in your entire life who truly knows who you are and what you need. You are the only expert who can recognise what is absolutely best for you. I am simply an expert in the coaching process. As your coach, I help you discover what your own personal “best” might be.

Every day we make choices to do or not do many things. These choices may range from profound to trivial and each one has an effect that makes our lives more fulfilling or less fulfilling, more balanced or less balanced, that make our process of living more effective or less effective. Life coaching helps you learn how to make choices that create an effective, balanced and fulfilling life.

I am highly trained as generalists and can coach superbly on any aspect of life. However, I choose to specialise, for me, I specialise in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and Hypnotherapy which can hep with:

  • Confidence, Self Worth & Self Esteem
  •  Loving Relationships That Work
  •  Anxiety, depression and Stress
  •  Career Change – Creating Workplaces That Work
  •  The Mastery of Balance – Juggling a Life
  •  Self Care – Getting Your Own Needs Met
  •  Living Your Purpose
  •  Hot Buttons – Managing Anger, Upsets, Frustration….
  •  Managing Grief, Loss, Sadness and Change
  •  Connection Parenting
  •  Self & Identity – Surviving the Oppressive Over-Culture
  •  Food, Nutrition, & Optimal Health
  •  Working through phobias and fears
  •  Smoking Cessation

I also work with children and help them make sense of the world and where they belong.  The world can appear very confusing at times, especially with what they see on the TV and social media.  I help and guide them to make the right choices and make sense of that anger, fear, anxiety.

How does it all work:

A telephone consultation, getting an idea of the area you would like me to help you with, allowing me time to research and find the best course of therapy I can offer you, whether that be a life coaching session using CBT or a Hypnotherapy, based on the information you can provide me.

An appointment made with a view to attending at least 5 sessions if required. The session will last approximately 45mins – 1 hour.

Homework maybe giving, this will be for you to record when things happen so we can build up patterns, we can then discuss at the next session, for example I may ask you to record:

  • Your sleep
  • Your diet
  • When you get angry and why
  • Your negative thoughts and why they happened
  • Why you didn’t act upon a goal, and impact

To name but a few, you will record these findings on the relevant paperwork I provide you.

You can then contact me if your require help with any coping strategies given, if needed before the next session.

Most people still require coaching throughout their lives, but less regularly, just a reminder of the techniques and coping strategies taught.
