Life and Performance Coaching
If you’ve ever felt the following:
You hate your job or profession and want/need a career change
Your confidence is not where you want it to be and you sense of self-worth has plummeted
There is always so much to do and you’re constantly feeling overwhelmed and making little progress
You feel you don’t have clear vision
You have set goals but are not making progess toward them or hitting them
You feel lost or confused
You have a vision, but it feels overwhelming and you don’t have clarity about where you’re heading (or think you’re heading…)
Feeling a lack of purpose, scared, generally irritable and unhappy
Then perhaps it’s time to consider working with a coach….
Coaching can help you look at any situation from a different perspective, to grow strength to be able to ‘lean into’ the fear and move through/past/around the obstacle/s that are holding you back.
It’s important to remember that life coaching does not operate like a magic bullet, or wand… the solution always resides inside of you, but many times we are so fearful, we can’t hear or see it.
Life coaching begins with getting a strong sense of:
Your current bearings
Your current values, insights and philosophies…looking closely at what is important to you; somewhere inside of you might be a value around freedom…or purpose driven work…or creativity. If you’re feeling starved of that, your soul and spirit will suffer.
Your patterns, tendencies and normal behaviours and responses
The Benefits of Working with a Coach…
We start with identifying more clearly what’s missing or not working for you. There is likely to be some areas of discomfort that arise as we turn toward and look at some of the things which make us vulnerable and fearful. That’s a normal and expected part of the process in working with a coach, however, being supported and encouraged along the way is also part of the process.
1. You become more accountable
We often know what we must do, but we don’t do it. No one knows what we’re trying to achieve (sometimes that includes ourselves!) We all place limits on ourselves, with limiting beliefs and patterns that hold us back, preventing us from fulfilling our true potential. With a coach to push and and keep you on track, you can start to move past what you thought was impossible. Your entire belief system changes, and you take your life to another level.
2. You’re not alone
When you’re doing things on your own, you’re struggling your way through, getting lost, and frustrated. In business and in senior leadership roles particularly, it can often feel ‘lonely at the top’. With a coach, you can develop a faster route map to your destination and not feel so isolated in the process.
3. Working with a coach helps you gain stronger insights of yourself, the strengths and the limitations
We have patterns or behaviours that we are often are not aware of… a story or limiting belief we repeat that serves as a roadblock that holds us back. Other times, small nuances such as the way we carry ourselves, our body language or a subtle way we communicate can prevent us from building quality relationships that help us develop and grow our business or experience happier, fulfilling friendships. Working with a coach can help to shed on ingrained patterns and build new ones to replace them.
4. Build self-confidence and self-esteem
The benefit of working with a coach/psychologist is that you can delve into the depths you may be most fearful of, in safe space, to learn the what/where/why you feel the low levels of self-confidence you feel and how to recover and rebuild it through mindfulness and acceptance and commitment therapy and motivational interviewing frameworks. Experiencing the application of these tools and techniques empowers you to develop a long-standing foundation of confidence, self-belief and resilience.
Life coaching can help you examine all domains of your life, and go beyond the daily muddle of errands and thoughts to pursue your dreams with all of your might.
