The process of being coached and the relationship that is built through it, are both highly beneficial for anyone wanting help with life circumstances they find too challenging or when they don't know what to do next to bring about change.
A life coach helps guide you as the client towards reaching certain personal goals, whilst enabling you to develop healthy self-awareness and good decision-making practices. Through strong relational mentoring and support from the coach, you can gain insight about yourself, your needs and your personal circumstances. This empowers you as the client to affect the positive change you want for yourself. As your Coach, I work with your present to help guide you into your future.
We decide together which service will best meet your needs through a free introductory call.
Coaching is highly effective in focusing on the goals you want to achieve now and the changes you want to make for your future. The process is directed and driven primarily by you the client and I support and monitor your progress closely. Counselling provides you with a more in-depth assessment of your needs based on your current circumstances and an agreed plan to help meet those needs. The counselling process is therapeutic and often requires you to examine aspects of your past in order to help you see how it might be affecting your present. This is how personal healing and restoration are guided.
Yes absolutely. I abide by the ICF and BACP codes of ethics, which require that all client information and disclosure of personal details shared within the coaching and counselling sessions be kept strictly private and confidential.
There are multiple benefits to both when you commit to the process and doing the work for yourself. Coaching and Counselling change lives.
When done professionally, ethically and sensitively, both processes have incredible potential to impact you powerfully in a tangible and life changing way. You want change that you can feel and others can see. The positive care, confidence and restoration that comes from sound, therapeutic support can be the difference between feeling stuck in your difficulty and making it through into feeling and living better.
Coaching and Counselling can move at the pace you are comfortable with. Each service is individually tailored to suit your needs, preferences and goals so these generally direct the length of time you will commit to the process.
I recommend at least 12 to 24 weeks of life coaching as a minimum in order for you to experience the benefits. I do act as a consultant coach through one-off coaching sessions if there is a specific requirement for this type of service. With trauma and crisis coaching, separation and divorce care or restorative marriage support, services are usually on-going until the crisis reaches resolution point and you as the client feel sufficiently helped and ready to move on.
Caring for yourself throughout crisis and whilst going through trauma is paramount to good recovery. If you have been diagnosed with or suspect you have PTSD, looking after your mental and physical health needs to become a genuine priority.
Good Nutrional supplementation will help you to manage high cortisol and adrenalin levels which are activated by the the very real negative impact trauma has on your body, brain and nervous system. As part of my Life Coaching services, I offer health and self-care coaching to help teach you how to build practices that support your long-term recovery. The AIM Companies nutritional supplementation products are the best I have found, they are potent and very clean and I have used them for more than 6 years.
