Life Coaching

 

Life Coaching

I offer you a quiet space and dedicated time in which we examine what is going on in your life right now. Together we discover what the obstacles or challenges might be and I help you to come to a decision on a course of action to build your life how you want it.

It is easy to lose sight of what is really important to you when life is running away with you and you are just trying to keep up with all the responsibilities and challenges that are right in front of you. Life Coaching helps you to stand still, observe and discover; what is going on, is this what I want, what do I need to do to feel happy and fulfilled?

My life coaching focuses on, but is not limited to:

“The house is empty.
My husband won’t come home until 20:30,
my children not for a few weeks. My full time caring role has come to an end and I want to do something with my life.”

Sam, 54 years old

Midlife Challenges

A lot happens when we are in our midlife which I define as age 40 – 60. Our career progression starts to diminish and maybe is coming to an end. Our children start to spend more time out of the house on their own or are even moving out. We are not as fit as we used to be and women go through the dreaded (peri)menopause with all the physical and emotional symptoms that come with it.

At this stage in life you may feel that you have lost sight of your dreams and aspirations, that you are lacking in purpose and are getting little fulfilment out of daily life. You may feel frustrated or even angry about the lack of attention for you and what you want out of life. It’s not always clear what holds you back but it could be that you feel anxious and have lost confidence in doing something for yourself. With Life Coaching I can help you find yourself again and help you build a fulfilling next stage of life.

but my relationship is challenging. It has made me a little inactive but I want to get back to a full life.

Living with an AS partner

Living with a partner who is affected by Asperger’s Syndrome is challenging, to say the least. The emotional connection with your partner may not be what you expected it to be when you first met and you may feel lonely in the relationship. It is difficult to talk to family and friends about it because they don’t see and understand what goes on behind closed doors. If there are children involved you probably take on the bulk of the parenting responsibility. Your challenge is to look after your own emotional well-being and make sure that you can live a fulfilling life. Life coaching can help you find ways to look after yourself so that you can better face the challenges and feel that you can move forward.

How it works

Time for yourself

Coaching provides dedicated time and a safe space for you to talk about what is on your mind, whether your focus is on a business career, on your personal life or both. What we strive for is a sense of self-actualisation. According to Maslow’s pyramid theory self-actualisation is when you feel that ‘you accomplish everything that you can, that you become the most that you can be’ at this stage of your life.

My coaching

In a coaching session we sit down together and identify the things in life that inspire you, give you energy and provide motivation. These are the things that we want more of and we will explore how we can achieve that. We will also record the things that hold you back and think of strategies for how to avoid such situations. We could introduce mindfulness into the sessions if that is something that works for you. It is important to me that you feel completely in charge of the coaching relationship and that you are comfortable in asking for guidance where you need it most. Everything discussed during our sessions remains strictly confidential.

Number of sessions

The number of coaching sessions needed is different for each person and you decide what you need. It could be from just a couple of sessions up to several months of coaching. Again, you lead the way.

Homework

At the end of each session we agree on homework to complete before the next session. This homework will support you in moving the action forward. It is very important to me that you commit to doing your homework.

The result

When are you ready to end your coaching sessions?

– when you are happy and clear about your goals, and;

– when you are confident about the path to achieving your goals, and;

– when you feel you can manage the challenges on the way, and;

– when you feel you are in charge of your life.
