juggling personal and work commitments. With family and societal expectations thrown in, it’s easy to lose sight of what you really want from life.
Transformational coaching has a wider remit than personal coaching, career coaching or business coaching as it recognises that all parts of your life are inextricably linked. If you are unhappy or unfulfilled in one area, it impacts on your whole life.
Coaching provides time and a confidential space to explore what’s important to you and what you want from your life.
This allows an openness and honesty that is often hard to have in conversations with family and friends, where you are worried about being judged, or are influenced by their opinions or vested interests. These are deep, thought-provoking conversations.
The way we think affects how we feel, which impacts our actions and therefore our outcomes.
Let me ask you a question. Who is the person you talk to most often in a day? Most people respond saying their partner, best friend or a work colleague but none of these are correct. The person you talk to most in a day is YOU, and yet often the way we talk to ourselves is destructive and demotivating. We get stuck in negative thought patterns.
Through the use of questioning, coaching allows you to probe how you see yourself and your life, to challenge beliefs that are holding you back and to explore new perspectives. Your future should not be constrained by your past, and the skill of asking the right questions, enables you to shift your thinking, to identify new opportunities and to take action to realise these.
The tools and techniques used vary depending on what you wish to achieve from coaching. Change takes commitment and hard work. It requires an investment both of time and money, but the key question to ask is what happens if nothing changes? What is the way you are feeling costing you emotionally, physically, mentally and financially? And how is it impacting the people you care about?
If so, get in touch and we can set up a free introductory call where we can discuss what you would like to achieve from coaching. This allows us both to understand whether us working together would be a good fit.
