“As soon as you trust yourself, you will know how to live”
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

The enemy...

It holds us in place, stops us progressing and makes us cling to images of safety in our present position. It creates a "them" and "us", those that can and those that feel they can't. To what powerful force am I referring?... Confidence, or lack thereof. Confidence is a real passion of mine as I feel it underpins all human behaviour. The way we hold ourselves, the way we deal with adversity and within all of our human interactions, confidence plays a leading role. Lack of confidence is the anathema to taking positive action and accepting full responsibility in your life.

The Solution...

I believe with all my heart that if we have the confidence to allow ourselves to be vulnerable, to try something new, to put ourselves out there, then truly there is nothing that we are not capable of. The external rewards will be epic but the internal rewards will be life changing.

One simple but effective way of building confidence is by working on specific challenging goals that have been broken down to more manageable, bite size pieces. As you take positive action in a specific direction, one that has been completely chosen by you, you are firmly taking control of your life. It is a liberating and confidence building experience.

Will you join me on a journey, the results could last a lifetime?

Coaching

Coaching for me is all about empowerment and self accountability. By accepting full responsibility you are taking back your power and putting yourself firmly in the driving seat. You decide where you want to go, when you want to arrive and how you want to get there. I My role as a Coach is purely as a facilitator. To ask you questions to illuminate your goals, highlight skills you were not aware you had, obstacles you had not foreseen and help you focus on the way forward.

In each coaching session we will explore your goal in depth, what is motivating you, what it holding you back and how you might like to get there. If you are fully committed to working on your goal and have the time to commit to it, working with a coach can pay dividends. If you haven't reached your goal yet and it is one that you have been dreaming of for some time, there may be an underlying reason that is preventing you. It may be that what you are aiming for is incongruent with your beliefs and values. Through coaching all of these aspects can be explored and a way forward can be explored.

About Me

I worked in the Insurance Industry for over 18 years, mostly in the capacity of trainer/mentor and coach. Seeing someone go from unsure, slow and slightly bewildered to assured, productive and confident in the role was the most fulfilling part of my job. Being part of that transition gave me a real natural high and is a real driver for me. Therefore, I decided to focus on this aspect for my future career and began my personal coaching diploma with The Coaching Academy accordingly.

I have always been a life-long learner and have never been far away from formal education. I completed my psychology degree with the Open University whilst working full time, just before my daughters were born. I then changed to a part time role so that I could play a large role in raising my daughters and have since gone on to get my coaching diploma, a diploma in NLP Applied Leadership and a Mentoring certificate. I fully understand the need to have a really good work-life balance, a strong support network and the importance of taking time out for myself when I can, in order to work on my own goals and priorities.

I can always remember finishing school when I was sixteen and having the long 6 weeks holidays before I started my Youth Trainee position with Maidstone Borough Council in the September. The first two weeks I cherished after spending all that time studying for my exams, I was in desperate need of a break. However, as the weeks dragged on I began to feel a little bit lost. I have nothing to work on and no sense of purpose. My friend invited my raspberry picking at a local farm to earn some extra money and I gladly signed up. Every morning, when I awoke, I was so excited that I had somewhere to go and had a real purpose to getting up. I will never forget it. Since then I have always strived to find the purpose in my life and feel with coaching, that I have finally found it. I hope that if you choose to work with me, you gain a similar clarity.
