What is coaching

Coaching is a “collaborative solution-focused, results-orientated and systematic process in which the coach facilitates the enhancement of work performance, life experience,  self-directed learning and personal growth of the coachee”.

 The Association for Coaching  

 

Coaches are common-place in the field of sport, work and weight loss so why not make use of them for the most important thing in your life – you….your life

 

 You don't have to go it alone on your midlife journey through menopause

 

How effective is coaching?

Studies have shown that you have a 65% chance of completing a goal if you simply commit to someone else.

Unlike just an accountability partner, I have been well drilled in human psychology and behavioural neuroscience so I know how you can align your intentions with your behaviour consistently.  

With that in mind, you can increase your chances of success to 95% by choosing me as your coach.

 

Why work with me?

To become a certified coach, I had to pass rigorous training and commit to continuing professional development (CPD) to ensure I'm on top of my game of facilitating lasting transformation for my clients. Not all coaches are qualified.  Would you trust someone to fix your car who had not been trained?  I think not.

I trained through the Jay Shetty certification school which is accredited by the association for coaching (AC), is a member of the European mentoring and coaching council (EMCC), and abides by the global codes of ethics.  

This means you can trust me as a coach, I have been assessed and demonstrated that I know what I'm doing.  It means that I will act with honesty and integrity.  It also means that I will adhere to confidentiality, best practice, codes of conduct, legal considerations and ethical guidelines.

 

Through deep empathy and listening skills, I'm able to merge my technical understanding of human behavior with my compassion to achieve a deep understanding of what’s blocking you and preventing you from your success!

This rare balance creates trust, connection, and most importantly lasting results to ensure a smooth pathway towards making Midlife Your Best Life.

 

What results to expect

Increased Self-Awareness

This represents how clearly we see our own values, passions, aspirations, alignment with our environment, reactions (including thoughts, feelings, behaviours, strengths, and weaknesses), and impact on others. Self-awareness is associated with higher job and relationship satisfaction, personal and social control, and happiness; it is known to lower anxiety, stress, and depression. As you embark on your coaching journey, the benefits will prove to be invaluable to you.

 

A Whole New Level of Personal Growth

Growing in any capacity requires the ability to change. While on one level we seek to change, on another level, we’re terrified of it! Our minds want what’s familiar and predictable so that it feels safe. To our minds, anything new is associated with uncertainty meaning it's an unknown risk. This is why we resist change and growth despite our best intentions. I will guide you through the steps necessary to overcome these mind tendencies so that you can exponentially grow to reach new levels of personal growth.  I'll help you to let go of what was and to embrace and see the opportunity that midlife (YOUR time) brings.

 

Uncovering your true Potential

Working with me will help you deepen your understanding of self, which goes hand in hand with understanding your potential. The more you understand your potential, the more of it you will tap into. 

Practical tools for your ongoing growth and further transformation.

Theory is great but only so far as it helps you to practically improve. I focus on, guiding you through powerful tools, actions, behaviours, understandings, and perspectives that facilitates real and lasting transformation

 

Transformed Mindset

here's a reason why almost all successful people attribute their success to their mindset. What is mindset? It’s how you see yourself and the world. Do you see challenges as overwhelming or exciting? Do you see change as an opportunity or disaster? Do you think your skills or behaviours are fixed or changeable? Your answers to these will literally determine your experience, therefore your reality. I will show you how to create a powerful mindset that is resilient in the face of challenges and is capable of propelling you forward no matter what.  

Let's not see the menopause as the end of periods.  Let's see it in it's widest context and view midlife, peri-menopause and menopause as a time of freedom, positive change for the better.

 

How is coaching different from other support such as counselling and therapy?

 

Can coaching really help during midlife & menopause?

Did you know, that by managing your mindset, and by learning how to deal with stress better, your menopause symptoms can be greatly reduced

This can lead to:

  • A more positive mindset around this phase of transition
  • The confidence to speak to your GP, partner & work manager (if needed)
  • Becoming better informed about what to expect from midlife and the menopause

Which can then lead to you feeling more confident and in control of your life:

  • Improved sleep
  • Improved energy
  • Improved self-esteem
  • Improved relationships
  • Less overwhelm
  • Less stress
  • Less anxiety
  • Less self-doubt
