AND HOW CAN IT HELP YOU?
Life coaching is a process whereby
I, as your coach, helps you to learn, develop and progress in
your life in ways chosen and directed by you. Coaching normally
takes place through a series of conversations between coach and
coachee, either face to face, on the telephone, by email, or a
combination of all three.
You might choose to have coaching
because you want to change situations in your life, achieve
certain goals, or because you are unclear about your life
direction and want to find the best way forward. To enable this
process I will use listening, questioning, focused attention and
giving feedback. There is something about having someone else?s
undivided attention that can help you to deeply reflect on the
issue(s) you want to deal with and come up with answers and
solutions that suit you and your circumstances.
Having coaching can result in you becoming:
Able to handle change easily
Clear on your life direction and
Able to relate to others in more
Able to follow through on your
Coaching does not involve being
taught by your coach, receiving therapy or having someone else
solve all your problems for you. It is my job to empower you to
achieve what you want to achieve so that you receive the reward
and satisfaction of having made progress through your own
If you want to improve some area(s)
of your life and/or achieve certain personal or health goals
then coaching could really help you. It will enable you to
introduce new ways of thinking and approaching your life
situations so as to achieve better results. The goals you might
set yourself can be many and varied. Some possibilities are:
creating better relationships at home and/or at work
gaining more confidence in different situations
becoming more organised
improving your financial situation
achieving your ideal weight
regaining your health
achieving a healthier lifestyle
- overcoming or coming to terms with serious illness

How can you know if coaching would
be of benefit to you?
It can be useful to spend some time
considering the following areas of your life:
Work and career
What you would like to learn
Involvement in your community
And ask yourself the following
questions for each area:
What would you change right now if
What would you like to do more of?
What would you like less of?
How could you build on what is
happening right now and make it better?
Also ask yourself:
In what areas would you like to
increase your learning and knowledge?
What dreams and ambitions do you
have yet to fulfil?
What current challenges do you have
that you are not dealing with?
I hope that the above information
has helped you to gain a clearer understanding of coaching and
the opportunities it can provide for you.
