About coaching

What is Life Coaching?

Most people are familiar with sports and business coaches; in principle life coaching is no different except that it uses a more holistic approach looking at all aspects of your life and how they interact and effect each other. People will work with a life coach because they want to be more successful, more fulfilled and happier in one or more areas of their lives.

My role as a coach is to encourage, support and empower you, the client, to successfully move forwards to achieve your goals and create the life that you want. What is an essential part of the process is your commitment and desire for change. The coaching relationship is based on honesty, trust and transparency; it is non –directive, solutions and future focussed and confidential.

The Benefits that coaching offers:

How does coaching work?

In coaching we acknowledge the fact that our clients have all the answers within them and that they hold the key to unlocking their true potential. Through listening and the use of incisive and challenging questions I will create a safe non-judgemental space for you to think and reflect, enabling you to identify your needs, explore your options and come up with your own solutions. By raising your awareness and recognising your own skills, you will be encouraged and motivated to take decisive and effective action towards achieving your goals.

Coaching can be done in person face-to-face, over the telephone or via Skype so location is never an obstacle.

Working together I will empower you to discover your true potential so that you can take control of your own life path. I am 100% committed to your commitment!
