To make progress you need both a coach and a cheer squad - I promise to be both

How does life coaching work?

  • Life coaching allows you to focus on what is important to YOU. If your life is spent in pursuit of other people's goals - whether they be those of your boss, your husband or your parents - life is not going to give you the challenge and meaning that you need in order to be happy.
  • As your life coach I will help you get to the bottom of your stress or your unhappiness and let you see that you DO have choices - it doesn't have to be this way!
  • In coaching there is a lot of talk about ‘goals’ and ‘outcomes’, which really means that without a destination in mind, you’re simply going for a drive and may be tempted by any 'side road' that you pass. But without a clear idea of where you are going, how will you know when you have got there?
  • Remember as a child when your parents would suggest ‘going for a drive’? I know it always seemed utterly pointless to me and my heart used to sink at the prospect.  The only way I could be persuaded to go along without having a tantrum was the promise of an ice cream at some point. Most of us still allow ourselves to be bribed with metaphorical ice-creams like new clothes and holidays, but how much more satisfying might it be to have really thought hard about where you want to go, worked out the best way to get there, set ourselves a challenge and actually pulled it off?
  • As your Life Coach, I will work alongside you to clarify your ‘destination’, to plan the best possible way to get there – and to help you change a wheel if need be!  Too often we allow past failures and self-limiting beliefs to get in our way and to stop us from reaching our goal. We stretch ourselves to breaking point across all areas of our lives; juggling our careers, relationships and domestic routines, but still somehow not ever feeling satisfied that we have finally ‘made it’.
  • My aim is to help you enjoy the destination AND the journey. My promise is to make you feel good about yourself again, to be happier, less stressed and fully aware of what resources you already have.
  • How long does it take to see results? I ask my clients to commit to at least four sessions of coaching, delivered over a six week period.  For many clients this is enough, but others may choose to come for longer.
  • How much does it cost? Coaching costs $165 per session and additional contact between sessions is free. 

You may be surprised to know that you already have all the resources you need to turn things around, it’s just that you might not be looking in the right place.  I happily share with you all of my ‘resources’, including twenty years experience in business and a multitude of ‘life’ experiences including marriage, motherhood and learning how to juggle the work/life balance continuum - and you’ll be amazed at what we can achieve.
