What is Life Coaching?
I believe that life coaching is reminding people of things they already know but have temporarily forgotten. It isn’t counselling or therapy, I’m not going to fix your life but what I will do is motivate you. I will sift through your blocks with you and help you find the way forward. There are tools and exercises that can be used, but most of all I coach from ‘presence’ – I hold the space as you find your way to the answers that lie within. I follow what emerges in the moment and trust my intuition. It has been said that suffering is the great awakener, we do not necessarily change voluntarily as habits are stubborn, even if they keep us feeling trapped in a life that feels too small, a life we’ve outgrown. In the words of the spiritual teacher Michael Beckwith ‘pain pushes us until a larger vision pulls us’. The message from the pain we experience is that we are ready to take the next step in our evolution. We are ready to change and ready to grow.
