Life Coaching Service
What is Life Coaching?
The ICF defines coaching as “partnering with clients in a thought-provoking and creative process that inspires them to maximize their personal and professional potential.”
I think my definition will evolve over time but as of now it would be as follows:
“A Life Coach works with a coachee whereby deep, engaging conversations bring to light hidden passions and personal blockages with a sincere view to guide them deeper into conscious awareness of their vast potential. To push back the curtain of unattainability and dare to look.”
It’s maybe a tad wordy but i really want to capture the essence of what we’re doing here, which is to actually try to be happy and not lie down and take it. Modern life has us running around like the rabbit from Alice in Wonderland, chasing ghosts in the form of abstract deadlines, always late for something, trying to cram more garbage into our already overflowing waste bin. I’ve seen so many people with great potential just lay down and take it. Give up and ‘make do’ with their lot in life. And so many people have their back turned to the door that will set them free because it’s ‘safer’ where they are. This is true of Personal Training clients (or at least people who need a PT but are in denial), not just Life Coaching clients. It’s quite sad. So here I am with the task of helping people dig a tunnel out of their prison! That’s what this service is about.
How will we work together?
Life Coaching with me, as taught by Results Coaching Systems, is generally set over ten or twelve sessions of one hour each week for 3 months. Why? because this is a proven time frame that is long enough to make significant change but not too long that one could get demotivated from not quite seeing results. Some people do need a longer time frame and in those cases it’s fine to spread it out but usually we’ll tend to stick to the three month program.
Single sessions are also available for a quick way forward in a sticking issue in life. This may be a few sessions long and can be treated as perhaps one isolated issue or dilemma that I can coach you through.
Note: block booking a whole 10-12 session program is not mandatory by any means.
We will probably be working over Skype with video, Skype with just audio or phone. If you live in the North Wales area and we need to meet in person, you will decide where is most comfortable for us to meet although I can suggest various places. We might meet in a cafe or even conduct the session in a park. Wherever works best for your process.
What will the sessions consist of?
In terms of the twelve session program, we’ll start out by looking at your life as a whole and get a solid idea what it all looks like. Then we’ll look at setting one to three inspiring goals, one of which will be directly related to fat loss/muscle building.
This is all in session one. Then we’ll break down those goals into workable elements and attempt to work through each part of a goal until it’s complete, hopefully before or on the final session.
As we move through goals, setting homework actions and seeing growth, we’ll uncover deep insights and sometimes notice the goals shift and evolve and become redefined. We’ll also conduct exercises designed to get you thinking deeper about your life, your issues and perhaps most importantly, your self.
By the final session we should be at a point where we’re at the top of a mountain, looking back at the journey and really absorbing how far you have come. This is possibly the most significant aspect of the whole program. Truly transforming.
What other kinds of things could Life Coaching help with?
Here is a quick list of issues we might tackle. Obviously not a complete list but it should give you some idea:
- Fat Loss, Health & Fitness
- Career Aspirations
- Organisation Skills
- Dating & Attraction
- Social Skills
- Relationship Issues
- Financial Goals
- General Happiness
- … Just About Anything!
Sounds great! What do I do next?
Just send me an email or phone me and we can have an initial, brief discussion before we decide where to take things. You can decide what kind of arrangement you want in terms of session numbers and then I can direct you to Threecoaching to arrange payment. Please feel free to make contact even just to speculate and ask some questions, i’m happy to help!
Note: If you’re not satisfied with the service or think that Life Coaching isn’t for you, payment can be refunded in part depending on the circumstances. I like to be flexible and make sure my clients feel comfortable and at ease.
