Welcome to my first blog. I thought it best to start my blogging with an explanation about what I actually do. For me the following statement really encapsulates what a life coach does.
“You guide (not advise), encourage (not force), support (not interfere) and empower (not take over) your clients to success”.
A Life Coach empowers another person to explore their values, beliefs, dreams and purpose.
We help them to be accountable, to focus on the present, accept the past and move on to the future. We support the client to improve their relationships, careers and day-to-day lives and enable clients to clarify their goals, identify the obstacles and then help them to find answers to their questions or challenges from within.
Sometimes the answers may be obscured, concealed or hidden so we continually try to give the power and confidence back to the client and help them to discover their personal best. This enables the client to create a happier, more meaningful life and achieve long-lasting changes/results by using their own skills and strengths.
The coaching process itself can be a subtle but powerful journey. What most people don’t realise is that it is the client who does the learning as they work their way through each step and the life coach is only there to ensure that the client successfully achieves their goal.
I hope this has helped explain what I do and now I want to tell you why I am a Life Coach.
The catalyst I believe for getting me to where I am now was my Mum dying 3 years ago. Her death made me do some soul searching and think about who I really was, what I wanted to do long term, and what my purpose was?
Most of my career I have had roles in training or leadership. My belief is that everyone deserves an opportunity to learn, to develop themselves and strive to be the best that they can. My strongest attribute is my ability to coach people and change people’s mindset whilst creating an empowering environment.
Two years ago, I met up with a friend I hadn’t seen in a long time who is now a life coach. While talking with her everything fell into place and the excitement was real between both of us when we realised that life coaching was what I wanted to do. I haven’t looked back since.
Life coaching enables me to help empower people and support them through their journey. I love seeing people gain confidence and knowledge. I want to help people achieve their dreams and goals and live their best life!!!
That to me means I can live my best life.
