Since I'm working my way to becoming a credentialed life coach, it's time to start practising my coaching skills. Hence me offering coaching sessions at a really good rate. It's the testing and skill honing phase of my training while I launch this new dynamic to what I do and I'm really keen to get my hands dirty in the work... This is where you come in.

Become a Beta Client:

Be sure to send me an e-mail or even better, give me a phone call and lets have a chat about the process & any other points of interest & to set up a complementary meet up time and place. I always get to meet my potential clients first to see if I would be a good fit. We'll exchange contact info so that I can send you more on the coaching process to learn a little more.

About Coaching:

In the coaching relationship... it's all about you! It's a synergistic process where, you're the expert and I'm your sounding board. It's all about you taking responsibility for the life you have (look at where you currently are) and want (Where you'd like your life to be) and everything in it. In the process, we discover the miss-match (if there is any) , find your core values and dreams and through deliberate collaboration, we design (you design) the steps to move you in the direction to making whatever part you want into a reality. The coaching process includes thought provoking questions (curiosity gets you into solution seeking prospective = more empowering), feedback, re-framing and accountability.

Through the process, you start learning these awareness skills and develop more emotional intelligence and capacity to expand into your full potential.
This is a totally open, non-judgemental and confidential space.
I'm not going to sugar coat it for you (even though the above sounds pretty sweet); it takes guts to own your s*%t and to see that happiness isn't all positive thoughts and roses. Instead, through the process you find the coherence, congruence and presence to see everything (both the negative and positive forces of life) as perfectly balanced and exactly what you need to step into your value (what you've here to do/your potential). It's about; not being ruled by emotional overwhelm or circumstances. Rather, it's about taking your life and creating more of what you want ON PURPOSE. Life no longer happens to you.. it starts happening for you.
It requires: courage, letting go to attached stories of your past (shifting perspective), experimentation (stepping out your comfort zone), finding the skills you need to adopt to make change (adaptability), accountability (setting yourself up to be held accountable DELIBERATELY - useful for those days of doubt), planning, self awareness, measurement, re-assessment.

What is coaching and how does it work?

Coaching is an action orientated support service that helps one draw in awareness around current ways of being (checking in), thinking and how to create change through thought provoking questioning. Coaching moves you forward by identifying you values/priorities for change, creates a manageable action plan towards that focus and uses accountability to ensure there is progress.
Coaching focuses on the client as the expert in the sense of empowerment from within rather than looking to outside sources for "fixing" or fulfilment. One learns how to perpetuate that for oneself; here you are in the drivers seat on your journey... I'm your coach companion, here to help you challenge, possibly redefine your potential.

Through the power of a safe and honest conversation, the process can help you see things with new eyes to momentum forward.

I apply the coaching skills to regular sessions and for clients who want a total lifestyle shift. Check out the package options I offer here.
