When was the last time you paused for breath?
I can help you put two feet firmly on the ground and reconnect with yourself.
This strong foundation will allow you to grow in confidence so you feel completely in control of your now, and make some awesome plans for what’s next.
Your life is whipping past at 100mph and you’re being carried along with it.
As a result you’ve lost touch with who you are and what you really want, you’re stuck in a tangle of whirling thoughts, “maybes” and “what if’s?”
You know you want to make a change but you’re not sure what, how or just where to begin. So you just keep on whirling (You make it look pretty good from the outside, but you’re most definitely not feeling so amazing on the inside).
To help you make proper, long lasting changes, Coaching with me means 3 things:
1: Taking a pause from your life
2: Reconnecting with yourself
3: Growing from a place of authenticity
And we will use the outdoors to help us along the way.
How does it work?
Coaching works best over time, so I'll always recommend you invest in a programme of sessions. Sessions are 1 hour and spaced 2-3 weeks apart. But a lot of the work happens in between sessions, so I'll supply you with a workbook where we can keep track, make notes and share development ideas.
We’ll look backwards, as well as forwards, understanding ALL of you. This will help you to build the confidence to take control of where you are now, and make some awesome plans for what’s next.
As part of the Coaching process you will be encouraged to get outside and reconnect with the great outdoors (even just your local park). Because Nature has a way of getting us out of our heads and back into the world around us - the ultimate way of feeling Grounded.
I won’t demand that you go and hug a tree or lie in a field (although I would highly recommend it if you like that sort of thing!). But I will encourage you to take yourself out for a walk, to use nature to help you think more deeply, more creatively, to really get in touch with yourself.
Frequently Asked Questions
“I’d love to do this but I don’t have the time”We make time for what’s important to us. Sessions are 1 hour and take place every 2-3 weeks, usually with some ‘homework’ or walking inbetween. We can always find a time that suits you, I guarantee
“I’ve never done anything like this before”Most people haven’t! The majority of my clients are in this position and find it invigorating to have the opportunity to think about their lives in a different way. If you just carry on doing what you’re doing, then things are unlikely to change.
“I’m worried that this could resurface old anxieties and worries”I’ll be honest, stuff might come up that makes you feel uncomfortable. But it’s important to talk about this because it’s what makes you who you are. My training in Psychodynamic Coaching can help you put this into context and work with it. I am also a Mental Health First Aider, so if anything gets too much, we can work to find further help and intervention.
“It feels indulgent spending this money on myself”This is both a short term and a long term investment. Think about where you could be in 6 months / 12 months / 2 years! If it helps, think of it like Personal Training, for your whole self.
"How does Coaching actually work?""Coaching gives you the opportunity to see things perhaps through a different lens, and reframe aspects of yourself and your life. A Coach will ask questions to help you bring attention to things that might be residing in your subconscious, help organise your thoughts and make a plan for change. Generally speaking, sessions are spaced 2-3 weeks apart, so as to give you time to develop inbetween sessions, whilst not losing momentum.
"Why work with Nature?""When we're in nature, we give our brains and our bodies the opportunity to be calmer. The busy ‘command centre’ of our brain quietens down and the parts of our brain responsible for creative and strategic thinking can be more easily accessed. Put simply, we just think differently outdoors. So being in nature offers the perfect opportunity to help us work things out, tackle some of the stuff that’s whirling round in our heads, get a different perspective and think more creatively.
"Coaching really helped me define my next steps in life and career wise. It has also helped me to make powerful decisions for myself, which I wasn’t very clear about before. Overall, I feel a sense of calm but also new energy for my life. Over the last few weeks, I realised that I am making much more conscious decisions about the experiences I want to have in my life. Overall, I feel empowered."
