For sure the question I am asked most, has to be, what exactly is a coach ? Do I need a coach? What will I achieve by having a coach in my life ? There is still great confusion regarding the work of a Coach and what it can bring into your life, straight away I have to tell you it is not therapy, not that there is anything wrong with therapy, absolutely not, I am a qualified psychologist so know all sides of each profession , Coaching is different .A psychologist likes to look back to find the issue responsable and work on that to resolve, A Coach works on the future from where you are to where you want to go.
I feel in my role of a Coach, that I am a silent partner in your venture, it allows me to work with you while your learn or acquire new abilities you achieve your goals, resolve your problems, all of this time is a learning curve and helps people to develop further, Coaching is about creating that plan, that you will need,to start to move in the right direction, forward to where you are to where you want to be.
I love working with clients, to hear their excitement about what they want and who they are and who they wish to be, the partnership I form is built on trust and confidence, as we start to form the plan needed to start the positive path of action.
When I work with committed people who are truly looking for improving their lives, connecting with others and creating circumstances, I love to be direct with warmth compassion and humour to obtain the results we are looking for. Life Coaching is simply helping another person to move forward, A Coach will help a client to see clearly where and what they want and where to go, Many people who work with a Coach are happy successful people, but, at times they can get stuck and want some extra support, you do not have to be down in the dumps and totally lost. A life Coach helps you accomplish your goals, life changes and reach your dreams.
So why, do they need a Coach, they need insight, feedback and guidance, they achieve more than working on their own, they obtain consistency, it allows them to take more effective and focused action, they become more balanced and fulfilled, they may wish to make a career transition or a change in their life, they may want to go from A to B but are not sure how.
As a Coach what do I do for you, I set boundaries, I let you choose your agenda(where possible) I listen to you continually,I ask questions,I support you always, I appreciate you, I help you plan forward and obtain your goals.You can have your sessions in the privacy of your home, no need to move, via skype or email.
You also have a very important role in this, so your attitude and energy for your own success is vital, A coach will help you to gain confidence new skills and awareness.
A Coach is a professional, Life coaches unleash the power of partnership !
Coaching is unlocking a person’s potential to maximize their growth
Coaching refuses to let you be anything but the best you can be.
