What do I mean by life coaching? And how would I work with you?
Life coaching for me means working with you to support and achieve personal success and fulfilment in life. It’s defined by what is important to you and what you might be grappling with.
Some examples of some things I have coached people with are:
- Confidence and self esteem
- Career transitions
- Dreams and aspirations
- Getting your life in shape
- Health and physical well-being
The key of my coaching is the quality relationship we develop together. This allows us to set the agenda as equals, which fosters a holistic approach and provides that impetus to tackle change and set your actions in motion.
What to expect in a coaching session?
The first session starts with discovery. This helps work out whether we will be comfortable working together. It’s about getting to know each other and getting a sense of whether we can work together, and what type of approach would work best for you.
One of the approaches I like to use is known as ToGROW. It is a short mnemonic meaning Topic, Goal, Reality, Options and Will do.
The approach relies on taking you through a series of steps focused on the matters you have been grappling with, and supporting you in identifying possible solutions and actions.
- T = Defining, describing your context and your topic
- G = Establish the Goal you want to achieve.
- R = Examine the Reality (use the obstructions graphic)
- O = Consider all Options (use the road ahead graphic)
- W = Confirm the Will do.
