Life Coaching

What is Life Coaching?

Life coaching is a powerful relationship for people who wish to make changes in their lives. What essentially a coach does, is help you clarify what is really important to you and then helps you create a life around that. People usually come to coaching because they want a better quality of life, more fulfilment, better balance, or a different outlook to accomplish their life desires. The job of the coach is to support you, challenge you and motivate you towards achieving those goals.

How does Life Coaching work?

The coach assists in a powerful process of self-discovery. The coach’s job is to listen and ask questions, not to provide the answers. Clients are capable and resourceful and they already have the answers within. Many coaches will recommend four to six sessions to enable their client to move on fully in their chosen area. Some coaching relationships can be either much shorter or much longer. Some clients like to check in with their coach infrequently for further sessions to re-evaluate where they are at. Meetings between a coach and a client can be face to face, by telephone, by email, or as a combination of the above.

What can life coaching do?

People come to coaching for a number of different individual reasons. They may be motivated to achieve specific goals, for example, to start a business, to have a healthier body, to write a book, or to be more effective or more satisfied at work. In particular, life coaching is great for anyone who feels ‘stuck’. That stuck feeling usually comes from remaining within your comfort zone, telling yourself the same story over and over in your head about why you can’t possibly do something, or have something, or be something. The coach works to challenge that story and get you towards the truth. He or she will tell you that the only thing that limits you, is you.

My Approach to Coaching:

I work with people either on an individual basis, or within a group, and am an accredited member of the Life and Business Coaching Association of Ireland.

As a Louise Hay and Meditation teacher, my approach to coaching others is particularly holistic. I view the human being with the emphasis on the whole person - our mind, body, emotions and spirit. I consider it very important everyone connects with their inner self in order to gain inner wisdom during the coaching period so that they can gain even more clarity about their life. Therefore (after mutual agreement), I incorporate simple meditation into our coaching sessions and always recommend that the client practise in between our sessions. At our one to one sessions, the atmosphere of the room is gentle and relaxed so that we both feel comfortable and at ease.

While I coach in all areas of life, I find that many people who come to me for coaching, do so because they are unhappy in their work situations and wish to make a dramatic career change. It is unsurprising that I attract people with this issue, as I went through this experience myself.
