This is a question I get asked often; “What can coaching do for me?”
Curiosity is a great attribute to have. Asking questions about something you’re not familiar with can expand your wealth of knowledge, and often offer surprises you may not have considered.
I first heard about life coaching back in 2007 when a couple of young women at networking events gave me their business cards and told me I should engage a life coach.
Frankly, I was quite put off by their approach, and put off the idea as just another passing fad. And, really, who wants to ever be ‘should’ on? Turns out I could not have been more incorrect.
Later that year I met a lovely professional woman who engaged me in conversation by asking what sort of work I was doing at that time. After a couple of minutes I asked her the same question. She said “I’m a life coach.”

She had a calm and gentle nature which made me feel safe immediately. That is a key component for clients.

No one on this planet can escape needing a helping hand somewhere along the way.
Coaching is the helping hand that got me moving forward by learning to clarify my thinking and alight with what I wanted to achieve, and expand my choices in daily life.

What is especially meaningful is to witness as clients discover the beauty and endless possibilities within themselves. Their growing awareness and commitment to moving forward is powerful and exciting.
Coaching is a thought-provoking and creative dialogue that expands and inspires people. It brings about permanent and life-enhancing transformation.
