The relationship between you and your coach is very important. A good relationship is based on trust, honesty, respect and openness. You need to be able to trust your coach fully, to feel safe to talk about issues you may have and that whatever is said is said in confidence. You need to trust that your thoughts, beliefs and ideas will be respected and not judged or criticized and that your coach will provide a safe and judgment-free space.

You need to trust that your coach genuinely wants to help you. And the coach must also be able to trust in you, the coachee – that you are fully committed to working towards your goals and will take any necessary action.

Coaching is a partnership between you and your coach and this way of working together creates synergy. Your coach acts as your thinking partner and enables you to find your own answers. They will extract your best from you and have an expectation that you will succeed. Working with a coach gives you accountability to take the necessary action to achieve your goals.

Your coach will inevitably bring their own personality and life experience to the coaching process, which can be very useful as they may be able to relate more easily to issues you are exploring and have real life examples of how to make changes and improvements.

“Courage doesn’t always roar.  Sometimes courage is the quiet voice at the end of the day saying, “I’ll try again tomorrow.”   (Maryanne Radmacher)

 

My role as your coach

As your Life Coach I will work with you to create your ideal life and to design a powerful, effective plan of action for achieving your goals. I will help you uncover and remove any blocks that are holding you back from living the life you passionately want to live. I will motivate, encourage and support you every step of the way and keep you on track towards your goals. I will delight in all your achievements and will be entirely focused on and committed to your success.

As your coach I will not tell you what to do but will work in partnership with you and be a 'catalyst' to help you find the answers and solutions you need to make the necessary changes and improvements in your life.

As your coach, I will
•  Acknowledge and praise your successes and achievements

you want
•  Believe in your capability to accomplish anything you wish to
•  Expect you to give your best
•  Ask powerful, stimulating questions
•  Monitor your progress and keep you on track
•  Provide a safe place for self-exploration
•  Help you clarify your goals
•  Identify self-limiting beliefs
•  Hold you to your committments

•  Encourage you

  
Give you unconditional support
•  Motivate you
•  Be a sounding board
•  Help you set goals and achieve them
• 
Be available in between sessions for email coaching to keep you

 Love the moment and the energy of that moment will spread beyond all boundaries.”   (Corita Kent)

 

My coaching beliefs are: 

•  Absolutely anything is possible and achievable
•  It is never too late to change or to work on your dreams
•  Any goal, ambition or dream can be dusted off and worked on – whatever
excuses you’ve been using! - job, mortgage, kids, age, …
•  You can start to work towards your goal from wherever you are right now
•  There is always a path between where you are now and where you would
  like to be

"It's never too late to be who you might have been."  (George Elliot)

 

I like to work with women who:

•  Have big dreams
•  Want to jump off the cliff and fly
•  Want to do something completely different with their lives
•  Want to contribute to a healthier, happier, more peaceful planet
•  Want to stop talking about what they would like to do and are ready to do it
•  Are looking for new experiences and possibilities
•  Are looking for adventure
•  Are willing to stretch and grow personally and professionally
•  Want to make the lives of those around them better
•  Want to take their wealth to the next level
•  Want to be more authentic, honest and present
•  Have unique gifts they want to share
•  Want to live their life purpose
•  Are ready to take action NOW
•  Mums struggling with balancing the needs of their children with their needs for themselves
•  Artists who want to get their work out there

 

 

"Come to the edge" he said
They said: "we are afraid"
"Come to the edge" he said
They came
He pushed them
And they flew
