Life Coaching & Mentoring
Life coaching helps you clarify your goals, identify the obstacles holding you back, and come up with strategies for overcoming each obstacle. I empower you to set goals and establish accountability for personal and professional success. You set the agenda, and I serve as an objective sounding board to help keep you focused and on track. I help you break through old barriers and develop new practices so you can reach your desired goals.
Life Coaching will improve your
Both your personal and professional relationships will benefit from life coaching.
Whether you are just starting out or are already the CEO, coaching can help you advance.
The personal skills you will acquire or improve on translate to your everyday life.
In order to really maximize the coaching experience, the format is a series of one‐on‐one conversations, where we meet for an hour every fortnight (or more regularly). I work together in partnership with you.
I provide you with the opportunity to explore your options and help you to see things from different perspectives by asking questions, making observations and, where necessary, challenging you to shift your thinking and behaviour.
I create a safe, non‐judgemental space in which you feel comfortable discussing any aspect of your life, business / career. The process is always forward‐looking, celebrates your abilities and aligns them with goals you set for yourself.
I offer a 6‐session package as a solution. It is recommended that you complete the whole programme. This covers the following structure, although this we would adapt to your own circumstances:
We discuss your current situation. What’s working and not working in your life, business / career. What needs to change?
We examine the forces that are pushing you to make changes in your life, and those that are creating uncertainty or holding you back. This allows us to address your drivers and barriers to change, to strengthen the former and reduce the latter.
We explore a vision for your life. We will start to define a direction towards a role which will align your interests, goals, talents and experience.
We brainstorm your professional skills and natural talents. You discover a sense of who you are, what is it you do and what your place in the world is. I will assist you in developing a clear purpose for your life which will give you greater clarity going forward.
We examine your ‘saboteurs’. What are the little voices that tell you not to take risks, or that you are not capable of succeeding? Everyone has this, we just need to uncover what yours are saying, and then challenge it.
The Action Plan. We assemble all the learnings into a list of next steps and make sure you have the right tools to succeed.
BEYOND THE PROGRAMME
Once you have completed the programme, we can discuss whether you would want to remain with me on a mentorship basis.
