Life Coaching

Life Coaching

offers a quiet space and dedicated time to examine what is going on in your life right now, to discover what obstacles or challenges might be and to choose a course of action to build your life how you want it to be. My own life experiences as a working mother of three and expatriate wife will contribute to the understanding of your particular situation. Together we will work towards you taking leadership of your life and the directions you want to take. My life coaching focuses on, but is not limited to:

“I am the proud mum of a beautiful daughter.
But life has changed so much. When people ask what I do, I don’t know what to say.”

Janet, 32 years old

Young Parents

Starting a family is often a very positive but, at the same time, overwhelming experience. Especially when it involves a change in career or even giving up work altogether. This can lead to a feeling of loss of identity. I can help you work through this process to find your new identity as a parent with or without a career.

“Here I am, yet again in another country.  
How long for? Who knows. This is the fourth overseas move and I am tired. I don’t have the energy to build up a new life. I want to do something for myself. But what?”

Eva, 45 years old

Trailing (expat)-spouse

Moving from country to country may look like an extended holiday to some but the reality can be very different. With my experience as a trailing spouse I can help you to find your own identity, whether in a profession, voluntary work, a leisure activity or just being you. An identity that moves with you from country to country and eventually home.

“I am 55 years old 
and I have worked my whole life. I would like the 10 years before my retirement to be more meaningful. What can I do?”

Ian

Next stage of career

The idea of another X years until retirement can feel pointless and depressing. Coaching sessions with me give you the time and focus to unearth ideas and opportunities that can make your next stage of your career more meaningful and satisfying.

“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

“Empty nester”

Some parents cannot wait until their children fly the nest but many dread it. The daily care responsibilities will reduce dramatically which can leave you with an empty feeling. I can support you in finding a new purpose in life.

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.
