“ A life coach does for the rest of your life what personal trainer does for your health and fitness"
In recent years more and more people are realising the benefits of working with a life coach for the their personal growth and are turning to a coach for support in achieving their goals and aspirations. Life coaching can literally be life changing and will enable profound change in your life.
My Professional Life
I have been working with people for over 35 years, supporting people to make positive and powerful changes to their lives. In my experience within corporate human resources, I have worked across a range of sectors and specialised in coaching, wellbeing and employee relations. In my most recent role with The Suez Group, an energy and resource management company that employs over 5,000 people in the UK, I was an integral part of the senior management team for 12 years. I was at the forefront of the wellbeing strategy and became one of the top three personal and professional coaches in the company.
I have the Barefoot Post Graduate Certificate in Business and Personal Coaching which is approved by the University of Chester and accredited by the International Coaching Federation. Barefoot coaching is internationally recognised as a hallmark of quality and they are experts in coaching and coach training.
In 2019 I took a leap of faith to pursue my life goal and start a full-time career in coaching. I hope you take that same leap of faith in terms of making the decision to work with me. You will be in safe and capable hands.
How I could help you
My background gives me an invaluable insight into what challenges you could experience in your working environment, as well as allows me to understand and relate to you. Whatever your professional goals may be, I can help you to effectively and strategically work towards achieving them.
As well as having its place in the professional environment coaching is also hugely beneficial from a personal perspective. Investing in a life coach can literally be life changing. It will help you to build confidence, develop stronger relationships and take meaningful action which will naturally lead to more success and fulfilment in all areas of your life.
Benefits of Coaching
Support you in gaining greater clarity around your purpose and passions in your life
Some people know exactly what they want from life, why they want it and how they will go about getting it, however, most of us could do with some support to create that clarity and would benefit in investing in creating the time to give this some thought. Working with a life coach can be a great way to get a better sense of who you are, unearth your skills and talents and discover what it is that gives your life meaning and purpose. There can sometimes be blind spots that you struggle to uncover yourself. With the help of open and thought provoking questions and deep listening you can become clearer on what you really want and begin to focus on setting meaningful goals.
Equip you to work through solutions to problems
Every coaching session and relationship is unique. Some people will come to a coaching session with no specific goal in mind and others will have very specific problems that they would like to work through and find solutions to. It is often very difficult to see the situation exactly for what it is when you are knee-deep in it. A life coach can help to change your perspective and identify new solutions.
Help you to develop better self awareness
This is one of the most pivotal techniques to work on if you are committed to achieving your goals and growing as an individual. It is at the heart of a coaching relationship. Self awareness will improve the efficacy of all of the other tools that you acquire throughout your coaching journey. Coaching will uncover what you are thinking, what challenges you find difficult, what drives you forward, what drives you in life, how you behave, the beliefs and assumptions you have and your strengths and development areas. It is difficult to overstate the value in developing your self awareness as it will ensure that your goals are genuinely the right ones for you and it will make it so much easier to move forward in a way that is right for you.
Help you with goal setting and making a plan of action to achieve your goals
How often do we really take time out from our hectic schedules to think about our life goals and what makes us happy? An understanding of where you would like to be in the future and the steps to get there can be invaluable but this can be overwhelming. Life coaching gives you the time and space to be able to guide you through this process by completing a plan of action to achieve the outcomes that you would like. A life coach will help you to ensure that every part of your plan is achievable so that you have the level of clarity you need to sustain genuine change.
Enables you to re-evaluate your thinking and beliefs
We all have ever changing thoughts and beliefs. Its part of what makes you ‘you’. Some of these are, of course, a positive force and helpful in allowing you to be the best version of yourself, however, sometimes these can cause mental blocks and stop us from moving forward. Working with a life coach helps you to be aware of your limiting beliefs and by working with a coach you will begin to unpick these limiting thoughts that may be preventing you from making progress. Finding a coach that is right for you could be the start of a powerful journey of self-growth, personal development and greater happiness and fulfilment.
A lot of us do not reach our goals as often as we would like. This can be perfectly understandable as we become distracted with life’s interjections, struggle to prioritise our time effectively or simply just lose motivation. Working with a life coach can help address these issues. Accountability is an important element in your pursuit of your aspirations and goals. You will be much more likely to make progress with a life coach and more quickly too. Coaching sessions will help to keep you on the right path towards your desired outcome. Your coach will have an understanding of your plan, next steps and the journey ahead so you can take solace in the fact you have someone there to make sure you stick with it
