WHAT IS LIFE COACHING?
According to many sources life coaching is now the one of fastest growth industries on the planet and still rising, which is funny because when I started coaching in 2009 I remember telling people I was a life coach and they would look at me puzzled and say “a life what?”
People are even getting their head around neuro-linguistic programming (NLP) and just in case you’re not one of them don’t worry there’s a section later on. We are more and more open to looking at our mindset, feelings and thought processes and taking charge of our outcomes. We know that when we take responsibility and make great choices that we get better outcomes and we want more of it.
That’s where a great life coach comes in. My role is to keep you accountable to reach your life goals and ambitions so you stay on track. We have all experienced trying to achieve something when we buddy up with someone else who is invested in us and has shared ambitions and goals. I want to be more successful in every way in my life and want to see the same for you. I want to inspire you and be inspired by you. When you have someone expecting you to show up and work with them, you are more likely to show up and do what it takes to show up and participate fully in achieving your goals.
There are particular times when a life coach can be really invaluable:
More and more smart women are using a life coach to increase success in relationships, health, wealth, business and many other areas where they want to achieve faster and higher levels of growth and excellence.
Life coaching is a process of transformation facilitated by a qualified life coach who understands how to guide and facilitate personal change in others. Skilled and experienced life coaches have studied life coaching, personality profiling, NLP to name a few areas. They may be qualified trainers or not. They are fascinated by the human psyche and what motivates behaviour and they are expert at recognising and helping others recognise behaviours, habits, skills and strategies to produce excellent results.
WHAT can i expect from a life coaching session?
Sessions run for an hour and are conducted inside ZOOM, which means that you can relax in the comfort of your own home or work space and focus solely on your session and your desired outcomes. It is a conversation guided by the coach who asks questions to get you to dive deep to find answers to questions that will give you a different and varied perspective on issues that have been causing you concern. All you need is a pen, paper, glass of water and an open mind and willingness to explore new options and possibilities.
Coaching is 100% confidential and judgement free and provides a safe environment to work through issues in a setting where you will be guided to explore your options.
As coaches we are not interested so much in how the problem was created as to how the problem may be solved. The history provides clues but is not the solution. The sooner we can move from the problem to solution the better. You will not spend endless hours going back over what happened. This is not productive. Coaching is moving forward towards a future where the problem no longer exists and finding the best, fastest path to that point that brings lasting results.
It is a guided exploration of the opportunities and possibilities available to you. We are creatures of habit and get stuck in our ways and sometimes cannot see the wood for the trees and believe that our options are very limited whereas there are many options that we may not have conceived or considered prior to coaching. It opens up windows and allows us to see through. It is the “aha” lightbulb moment that you experience when you finally solve a puzzle that has had you haven’t been able to solve on your own for a long time. Suddenly there are far more options open to you and you feel more empowered and upbeat about the future.
At the beginning of the session you will set a goal to achieve by the end of the session, so this could be clarity around a particular issue, breaking a habit, creating a more empowering mindset for example. I will help you to set a goal that you can work towards within the timeframe. By the end of the session you will have some clarity and an action plan to continue to work on with this issue and at the next session we will be brief. You will be able to email me between sessions to get support and keep on track.
Coaching programs work really well, rather than a one-off session as you can work on and build on something bigger over time to ensure that you get some really great results. Programs can be between 3 – 6 sessions or you may decide to invest in yourself each month to keep yourself on track and work on all areas of your life and business. The most successful people in the world use coaches to keep themselves at the top of their game. It is far easier to reach the top with the assistance of another person than on your own. With a coach you always have someone who has your back, that you can check in with, someone who will always support you and who cares about your long-term success.
