Coaching is nothing new


Coaching has been around in formal and informal ways, perhaps for as long as people have inhabited the earth.

I work with people who want professional coaching to make changes to their personal and/or professional lives.

Lives and circumstances change

What you’re doing today may not be appropriate or desirable tomorrow — it’s important to check in with yourself and make sure you’re making the most of your life.

To do this most people have goals of one sort or another

Traditionally these are set at the very end of one year or at the start of the next. We all start out with the best of intentions. But then life seems to get in the way. There’s not enough time, there are other pressures, there’s work, family, social life, blah, blah, blah. By about the end of February many of us have given up and are just going through the motions; going to work, coming home, getting dinner, watching TV and blah, blah, blah.

Failure affects your confidence

When you don’t reach your goals your level of self confidence and motivation may plummet. Achieving goals is rarely straightforward and goals can be sidelined through lack of motivation, indecision, limiting beliefs, overwhelm, procrastination, lack of skill or many other obstacles.

Coaching can help you stay on track, as well as having a trusted guide to help you navigate those obstacles. The articles in this section will help you coach yourself, support your goals and hopefully assist you to navigate around, over or through some of the obstacles.

If you’re a coach yourself, I hope the articles will be useful to you in your practice.
