WHY YOU NEED A LIFE COACH –
At times we all encounter personal change at various stages in life. It may be career, change of lifestyle, personal circumstances, retirement etc. At times like that we need a one to one relationship with someone we can trust to be confidential and qualified to help us find the way forward to happiness and fulfilment. I can provide that coaching relationship.
What can I do as your Life Coach?
My unique blend of Life and Work Experience together with my qualifications and experience in Life Coaching, Mindfulness and Positive Psychology, CBT ( Cognitive Behavioural Theory) and Counselling skills are a unique and powerful combination to empower my clients. I am constantly learning, updating and upgrading my skills to give the best service to my clients.
I will help you reach your goals and make changes in your life. Perhaps you’re feeling stuck or lost and confused in your life. Maybe you had dreams but you lost your way somehow. Maybe you want to get inspired, feel motivated, and take on the world.
As your Life Coach I will fill that role as your supporter, your motivator, your accountability partner, and life strategist. Once you see the value in getting clear on what you want in your life, it’s easier to pursue those desires. Or perhaps you already know exactly what you want in your life, but you seem to be stuck in pursuing it and making it real.
How can I help you reach your goals as your Life Coach?
I will help you to uncover and release any mental or emotional blocks. These limiting beliefs can keep us stuck, and we’re not even aware of them!
I will challenge you, push you, and question your outlook on life. Ask you “power questions” — What are your values? What do you really want in life? What feeling are you after? What is keeping you stuck and blocked?
When you’re feeling deeply stuck in your life or lost, as your coach I am someone you can trust and lean on to move your life forward again.
Some reasons why people come to me for Life Coaching :

2 – Limiting Beliefs Have Been Holding them Back
3 – They Simply Don’t Know Where to begin – can’t get started or have started but are finding it difficult to move to the next level
4 – They are unhappy
5 – They are unable to define a clear vision
6 – Not satisfied with their personal or professional life and want to change
7 – They are at a critical stage of life and want to evaluate your future goals

Some of the above reason may resonate with you in some way.

What is mindfulness?
Mindfulness is returning your awareness from your wandering mind to what’s happening in the present moment, and doing so with acceptance. You have to return your awareness again and again because the mind wanders endlessly.
Mindfulness means being aware of what you are doing, while you are doing it. This means being aware that you are breathing, walking, driving, running making a phone call, cooking a meal and so on. When you have thoughts, notice that you have thoughts and come back to awareness of what you are actually doing. When you are emotional just notice the emotion – not trying to deepen it and not trying to push it away – and come back to awareness of what you are doing.
Mindfulness lowers stress, helps you to relate in a different way to the challenges of life and enhances your sense of well-being. You can be mindful anywhere and you don’t need any kind of equipment – so mindfulness is completely mobile.
How can I practice mindfulness?
Mindfulness can be practiced in a variety of ways as part of your daily life. The simplest method is to practice returning your awareness to your breathing because your breathing is always happening in the present moment.
I don’t have the time for mindfulness.
Yes you do. You can make mindfulness part of your day and you can decide that you will do some of your routine activities (drinking tea, brushing your teeth etc) mindfully, for instance. If you can put some time aside to just be mindful. Mindfulness exercises and mindfulness techniques are aimed at people who are very busy – and nowadays that means almost everybody.
Is mindfulness the same as living in the now?
Yes. When you practice mindfulness, you gently bring yourself back into the present moment every time you notice that you have drifted in your mind back to the past or into the future. Also, you gently bring yourself back to the present moment whenever you realise that you have drifted off into your imagination. The word “gently” is important. Never, ever scold yourself for drifting away from awareness. Drifting is what minds do. Accept this fact and take your awareness back to the present moment.
