What is life coaching?

Life coaching is designed as a partnership that gives clients the space to explore what they want without judgement or limitations, and create a plan of action with accountability.  

Life coaching sessions create a space for you to choose the agenda, set the pace, and explore what is possible moving forward. Your role as the client is to drive the content of the session, while your coach is there to hold the process of working through the issue.  The coach is there to ask questions, share observations, and challenge assumptions.  

General life coaching session steps

^

Coaching Content

The content of the coaching session is always determined by the client.  At the beginning of the session, it is helpful to set an intention and desired outcomes for the session.

^

Exploration

The coach creates a safe space for the client to explore all angles and perspectives of the coaching content.  The coach may provide tools and resources to support this exploration with the permission of the client.

^

Solutions

The client generates possible solutions and analyses them with the coach’s support.  Together, they examine possible obstacles and hurdles that the client may experience in moving to a solution.

^

Action Plan

The client decides on their course of action and what they are commiting to action before the next session.  The coach holds the client accountable to the actions they’ve committed to.

I specialise in 3 areas of life coaching: 

transformation – leadership – career

Transformational Life Coaching

Transformational life coaching is a wholistic approach to life coaching.  Together, we explore various aspects of your life where you want to make a change.  By exploring a macro view of your life, we can understand how each life dimension impacts and connects to other areas.  Our lives are complex and interconnected with our environments and other people around us.

The sessions may entail some or all of the following exercises and strategies:

E

Creating a personal mission & vision

E

Writing short term & long term goals

E

E

E

Personal Leadership Coaching

Personal leadership life coaching is a subset of life coaching, focused specifically on growing the fundamentals of self leadership: self trust, self awareness, integrity, and accountability.  The focus is on the client’s way of being and how they show up in their own life.  Personal leadership coaching explores underlying core beliefs which drive behaviours.  Together we work to shift the client’s mind set, which opens up new possibilities and new ways of being.

The coach uses the self leadership fundamentals as a lens to discuss where the client is getting stuck and to help create a new outcome.  The sessions may entail some or all of the following exercises and strategies:

E

Exploring news ways of being

E

E

Practicing integrity to build self trust

E

Career Coaching

As adults, we spend a large amount of our time at work and our satisfaction with our work impacts other areas of our lives.  Clients who come to me for career coaching as looking for a change in circustance, roles, industries, or careers.  We explore their current work situation and where they want to be in one year, in three to five years and in ten years time.  Career coaching often involves taking stock of the clients current skills, experiences, knowledge and any gaps to address to prepare them for their next role. 

The sessions may entail some or all of the following exercises and strategies:

E

Designing a career path
