I understand that you have a great deal of choice in who you choose as your coach. I'd like to help you understand who I am as a coach, to hopefully make your choice somewhat easier. If you have any questions, please just get in touch.
My purpose is to connect myself and others to their deepest level of self-honesty. A self-honesty that continuously seeks to find the deepest truth that is available to ourselves. This is about connecting to what’s real for you rather than relying on the internal and cultural narratives that have been shaping your life up until now. I coach to wake people up to life, to the whole of life, and to help them to access authenticity, happiness and success in their lives.
I am a certified life coach (CPCC), have a Masters degree in Psychology, and a PGDip in behaviour change and well-being. I was trained and certified by the Coach Training Institute (CTI), one of the most established and well respected coach training schools in the world. My training also includes NLP, communication skills, leadership development, positive psychology, team coaching, mindfulness and nature connection.
Some coaches focuses on 'doing', goals and what next. My coaching focuses primarily on who you are, you're way of 'being' and how you show up in the world. By addressing this aspect of 'being', your ability to find what you want to do, and to love doing it is greatly enhanced. By connecting with your values. who you really are and how you think, you can figure out deeply important aspects of your life.
Once you start to work with yourself at a greater depth, and begin to shift some of your perspectives, it can start to get challenging. As an experienced coach, I will support my clients to handle whatever difficulties they face on their journey. Being the best version of yourself, or living your dream, often comes with some hard work and a willingness to face your challenges. I have experienced climbing the corporate ladder, moving through huge life changes, making substantial career changes and learning to live my dream life.
Like most coaches, I offer a free initial 30 minute chat for us to get to know each other, discuss your objectives for coaching, and for you to find out more about about my coaching. I aim to be as flexible as possible and to fit my coaching around your needs where possible. I coach mainly by phone and skype, but I also offer face to face, walk & talk and nature based coaching where feasible.
Coaching often leads to a journey of self discovery and personal growth. We will work with different perspectives, values and present moment awareness. You will gain the opportunity to make meaningful change, embrace your strengths, let go of unhelpful thinking and live a happier, more fulfilling life. I help you to work out who you want to be in the world. From that emerges a clear sense of what you can do to achieve that, and be authentically happy.
My client's lives and goals are the most important thing in my coaching. If you are serious about working hard to make changes in your life, learning deeply from the experience, risking being truly honest, and challenging yourself, then you'll find my coaching will make powerful difference to your life.
