COACHING or Counselling?

Coaching is Solution-focused. Life coaches emphasize practical strategies and action plans.

We work towards the OUTCOME you want, progressively and with ease. If it is needed we sift through any blockers and limiting beliefs.

The coach doesn’t need to know the content or even the details of your experiences - you don’t have to explain to someone who can’t relate.

HOW TO CHOOSE the right life coach for YOU?

To find the best coach for your needs:

Work out what you expect and what you want to achieve - do you prefer a coach who is friendly and supportive? Do you want someone to challenge you and hold you accountable? (I do both! - lots of experience with that balancing act)

Do you want to be given a different perspective or want someone with a similar background?

You want to feel you can trust this person and be confident that a session is starting the journey you will go on as you work together.

Ask: do I resonate with this coach? do I feel motivated and comfortable?

WHAT IS a Life Coach?

Definition provided via Google Gemini:

“A life coach is a professional who helps people identify and achieve their goals in various aspects of life. They are not therapists or counsellors, but rather trusted companions and guides who work with you to unlock your true potential and navigate personal challenges.

Your life coach will:

  • Partner with you: They actively listen, ask thought-provoking questions, and provide personalized support to clarify your goals, identify obstacles, and create actionable strategies.
  • Focus on the present and future: Their approach is forward-oriented, helping you move beyond past issues and embrace new possibilities.
  • Empower you: They aim to equip you with the tools and resources needed to self-motivate, overcome obstacles, and achieve lasting change.
  • Support various areas: While some coaches specialize in specific areas like career or relationships, many work across various facets of life, including personal development, finances, health, and spirituality.

Benefits of working with a life coach:

  • Greater clarity and focus: Gaining a better understanding of your values, desires, and challenges.
  • Improved goal setting and achievement: Developing actionable plans and staying motivated to reach your goals.
  • Enhanced self-confidence and self-awareness: Recognizing your strengths, overcoming limiting beliefs, and building resilience.
  • Better decision-making and problem-solving: Developing effective strategies to navigate challenges and create positive change.”
