Life coaching helps you focus on what is important to you. The process helps you find your 'true north'. It is about setting priorities, goals and actions and reflecting on what works and what doesn't..
It is also provides accountability to keep you in track. As your coach I provide a safe, non-judgemental sounding board and ask questions to help you clarify your thinking and see all your choices. Think about learning anything new - maybe a sport, a language, driving. Initially it felt really difficult, something you would never master. After lots of practice it started to get easier...and in many cases, having someone there to give feedback and support made it so much easier! That is what I offer as a coach.
We do a type of review - or audit. This is an opportunity for you to get to know yourself - your values, beliefs and motivations. Is your life balanced? Where are the gaps? What do you ideally want? Why do you want it? What is getting in the way? This process starts to tease out your values and beliefs.
Armed with a clear direction, your 'true north', and solid foundations of self awareness, you can then start setting some goals for each area of life. Things you want to achieve, to experience, to learn and to start doing/stop doing, to improve!
Now that you have clarity on your 'true north' and a plan, you can start putting the plan into action. It is about trying out new ways of behaving and slowly bedding in new habits. With clarity on the direction you are going, you start to become aware of alternative choices and opportunities.
