What is Personal Coaching?

Personal coaching is a tool that aims to help you achieve clarity and confidence to work through issues that are holding you back from enjoying a joyful and harmonious life.

Coaching is not about making simplistic judgments about someone’s life and telling that person how they ought to live it. Many coaches set out to fix what is wrong with people. My focus is rather on supporting you the individual in changing your relationship you have with yourself.

When we make small changed in our attitude, we automatically change our relationship from one of fear and constriction to one of more openness and flow. Doing this gives us the freedom and capacity to make internal shifts which often lead to personal change and the transformation of our lives

Effective and authentic coaching is based on the following five principles:

  • a shared feeling of trust and empathy between client and coach
  • a relationship of equality between client and coach.
  • a desire on the client’s part to focus on the future, while acknowledging the effects of the past.
  • a willingness by the client to work through challenging issues towards empowerment and self-confidence.
  • a belief in people’s ability to accept themselves and yet make changes that will improve their lives.

Coaching can help you:

  • regain and maintain self-confidence, self-acceptance and self-belief
  • encourage you to acknowledge your core strengths
  • examine your goals, interests and choices
  • explore real and perceived stumbling blocks to progress
  • help you achieve a sense of purpose
  • help you live a fulfilled and authentic life

The techniques we use to support you in overcoming barriers and reaching your goals depend very much on you, your wishes and your circumstances.

Following a detailed assessment we will reach a collaborative decision as to how best support you in moving  forward.

It’s not a matter of letting go – you would if you could. Instead of “Let it go,” we should probably say “Let it be.” ~Jon Kabat-Zinn
