What is coaching?

Exploring your own hidden potential by providing a creative, safe place for it to unfold.
 
It is NOT a therapy session, NOT a teaching session and NOT a consultancy session. 
 
YOU are in the driving seat and we will be having a conversation.  My role mainly is asking questions and supporting you to work your own body wisdom to unlock your own hidden potential yourself – you are the expert in you, no one else is. 

The coaching portion of my qualifications were undertaken with the Human Potential Institute, working towards accreditation with the International Coaching Federation, who say that coaching is:
  
"...partnering with clients in a thought-provoking and creative process that inspires them to maximize their personal and professional potential. The process of coaching often unlocks previously untapped sources of imagination, productivity and leadership.  We all have goals we want to reach, challenges we’re striving to overcome and times when we feel stuck. Partnering with a coach can change your life, setting you on a path to greater personal and professional fulfilment."

What do people get coached on?

Anything!  

If you have a goal you want to work towards and are interested in:

  • unlocking your true, boundless potential

    and

  • becoming the best version of yourself

      and

  • you just wanna feel good within the process

 BUT, you feel you need some:

  • self-motivation,

  • or you might feel stuck,

  • or you might need more organisation or time to achieve your goals,

  • or you want some focused self-inquiry into to how to achieve your goals,

 

then perhaps we could both benefit from a conversation. 

What kind of goals?  Sky’s the limit!

 

Common goals I work with include:

  • ​Establishing mindfulness​​ and / or meditation practices

  • Getting into a healthy sleep cycle

  • Establishing and maintaining a work-life balance

  • Establishing a spiritual practice

  • Healthy eating

  • Life purpose 

  • Life transformations, such as career changes, moving around the world and relationships

Others include:

  • education,

  • spiritual,

  • organisation,

  • time management skills,

  • health,

  • fitness,

  • career,

  • relationships,

  • business,

  • work,

  • adventure, or

  • you may even just want to figure out what your goal is in the first place. 

Presence could be described as a state of high level, meta-awareness and being in the present moment. You are aware in the moment, aware of yourself, others and your environment in a state of non-evaluation, non-judgement and non-grasping being. You are connected to all inner and outer experiences and have maximum access to creativity, intuition and intelligence. It’s a combination of emotional intelligence and self-awareness.

Benefits include access to creativity, intuition and intelligence. It allows for honour, trust and respect within and of relationships, it allows for recognising and understanding emotions and behavioral tendencies, for noticing body language and body wisdom, it deepens our sense of curiosity, empathy, it increase levels of gratitude and it nurtures powerful conversations.

It is crucial for successful coaching and goal achievement. It is necessary for the coach to listen intently, stay resourceful, stay creative, stay neutral, stay compassionate and stay available to support clients fully. ‘Presence’ is also crucial as a coaching outcome for you, the client. This is so you can access all of the wonderful benefits of presencing in your life outside of the coaching container.

It is a MASTERY of our internal state, which extends into mastery of our reactions to our external environment.
How can it be achieved? By being in the present moment. You can use various things to anchor you here in this moment such as your breath, the inner felt sense of your body, sounds, touch, smell, narrow visual focus or soft visual focus, in stillness or in focused movement of the body, eyes open or eyes closed.

As a happy human being and a successful coach, I have a number of different daily, weekly and intermittent practices I call upon personally to naturally support my presencing skills, so they can be brought to our sessions together. This helps form the safe container we will be working in together.
