What is Life Coaching?
Many people have heard of sports and business coaching, but do you know that you can also have a coach for your life?
That may sound odd.
Surely life is the way it is.
You either get lucky or you don’t.
You are an achiever, or you aren’t.
You are a happy person, or you are not.
I believe that anyone can improve their life (with a coach or without). A coach helps you get to your dreams, targets, desires, whatever you want to call it, in a much quicker space of time than on your own.
A coach challenges your belief system and supports you to create new, more beneficial beliefs to help you move forward.
A coach is a non-judgmental partner on your journey.
Someone to champion you and ask questions you wouldn’t think of yourself. Someone to have belief that you can do anything you decide.
We don’t always get this from friends and family members. They have their own ideas of what you can and can’t do and will try to do what they think is best for you (whether it is or not).
A coach gives you the time and space to be 100% you and if you don’t know who "Y is yet, we will find that out too.
A coach is NOT there to do it for you; to take over your life and your dreams in the way they want it done.
A coach is NOT there to judge you; to make you feel as if there is something wrong with you or to beat you up if you don’t do the things you are saying.
A coach is NOT in the parenting role; we walk side by side on the journey you have chosen for yourself.
Life coaching has changed everything about how I live my life and I want others to experience the same joys I have.
I lived my life intentionally, but the thing that was missing for me was the end game. What was I striving for and why? As a teenager I just went with the flow (as I think most teens do), I didn't know what I wanted to do in life so I just did what was in front of me. I was riddled with anxiety because I had no path.
When I married, it was with intent.
When I had children, it was with intent.
When we moved around the country for my husband's career, it was with intent.
When we decided to end our marriage after 16 years together, it was with intent.
All this intention, but I was still not happy. Everything felt so difficult. I had constant anxiety about making the right choices and not really knowing where we would end up.
Even though I was living with intent, there was still a missing piece.
That missing piece was my own self-worth and self-belief.
I think when we live with goals and plans, we feel we don't need outside support. I now know that with the help of a coach, I could have saved myself 10 years!
This may sound like an over-exaggeration but I truly believe if I had started coaching 15 years ago, I would be where I am now 10 years earlier.
I have no regrets, I have learned a lot from my mistakes and I believe everything is as it should be, but I certainly don't want to waste any more time now.
So to answer the question, what is life coaching? It is a way of living the life you want, getting to your desired dreams quicker than you would on your own (although each time we do, new dreams often surface) and having the support of someone there just for us along the way.
If you are ready to start taking part in your own life, book a free introductory call.
How can an Introductory Call benefit me?
I know (as someone with introvert tendencies), having a call may feel like the last thing in the world you would want to do. I know that feeling of staring at the phone thinking, I really want to do something but this feels very scary. In all honesty, I still feel the same for a second when the phone starts to ring!
The reason it is important is that we need to know if we want to work with each other. This works 2 ways.
Building a relationship where you feel confident enough to tackle some deep issues with me starts here. Before you part with any money, before you commit to 3, 6 or 12 months deep work, we both need to know it's the right thing for you.
Because I understand how hard it is, booking the introductory call via the website creates the whole initial link. You get the meeting time you want, you receive the zoom link and reminders and then, when the time comes, we have an informal chat about what you want out of all of this. I will guide you the whole way and during this first call, we will already begin to design the life you want.
