The majority of us don't get what we want out of life because we get in our own way

I work with professionals of varying backgrounds, from small business owners to chief executives.

The common theme that runs through all my clients is a deep yearning for their life to hold more meaning, purpose and fulfilment and what I have come to realise over my years of coaching is that the cause of this yearning is people frequently getting in the way of themselves.

What does it mean 'to get in the way of yourself'?

We all have our own baggage that we carry around with us and that often forms part of who we are. We allow how anxieties, concerns, past mistakes, opinions of others, weaknesses and fears get in the way of who we really are and strive to be. 

How many times have you found yourself wondering about the 'What if's' in life?

How many long held dreams do you have that never come to fruition?

It's so easy to come up with all sorts of excuses as to why one can't follow through with what one wants to do. These can take the form of all sorts of reasons.

I might get it wrong.

What if I fail?

Complacency

Self doubt

What will others think of me?

Comparison

Self sabotage

Self-limiting beliefs

Others expectations of you

The list could go on.......

What would life look like if you got rid of the excuses, stop listening to the lies you're forever telling yourself, took control of your self-limiting beliefs and took that first step to creating the life you really want to live.

My coaching practice allows you to recognise and open up about what is holding you back.

Looking at what the truth is behind a story you've been telling yourself for years.

How your way of thinking and behaving is restricting you from your fullest potential.

The self-limiting beliefs that have led you to play small,

Fear of disappointing others and seeking others approval

What I do really well is journey with you from a place of deep longing, confusion and frustration to a new landscape.

A place of clarity, confidence, direction. Equipping you with tools along the way that will set you up for success and achieving your desired goals.

Who is coaching for?

Coaching is for those who are motivated to achieve their goals, whatever that might look like. 

People come to coaching in order to have a more effective life, to get more from life - more peace, greater impact, balance, contentment, freedom, confidence.

But it all begins with some kind of stirring from within and the willingness to be honest, vulnerable and brave.

What exactly is coaching?

Coaching is a conversation, like no other!

The process of coaching is about bridging where you are now to where you want be.

Focussed around powerful questions.

Creating step by step actions to move you towards your goal.

Supporting you through obstacles and self limiting beliefs.

Providing tools and techniques to ensure changes are an on going process. 

This isn't a quick fix job

I'm afraid I don't have a magic wand that I wave and suddenly make everything tickety-boo. 

You have got to want to change.

You have got to do the work.

You need to be prepared to take action.

You need to be committed to the process.

And believe it or not - You have all the answers.

You are the expert on You.

Each coaching session is unique. It is tailored around your needs, your personality and your desired outcomes and goals.

What to expect

  • Explore areas of your personal and professional life that you want to work on.

  • Identify self limiting beliefs.

  • Develop tools and techniques to calm the inner saboteur.

  • Feel more content and in control.

  • Delve into your thoughts, fears and beliefs to understand yourself better.

  • Learn that you are enough.

  • Discover your values and how to live them out.

  • Build confidence and develop self-awareness.

  • Unlock your potential.

  • Maximise your performance.

So, you know something needs to change and you've made it this far.

 

Why not get in touch and book a taster session with me to find out if coaching really is for you?

There's no obligation and it may well change your life. This could be the first of many bold steps you take.

The Anchor

The anchor symbolises stability, security and being grounded.

Imagine being on a boat, lost at sea. It's bobbing about, allowing the wind and tides to dictate where it sails and it has no direction, no route plotted out.

The boat needs to drop anchor.

To stop.

To take stock.

Once a destination has been chosen, a route can be plotted. The anchor can be lifted. And the ship can set sail.

This is exactly how life can be sometimes. and the impact coaching can have.

 

Isn't it time for you to drop anchor?
