‘I felt like I could not breathe before I learned the benefits of Life coaching’

What is Life Coaching?
Life coaching guides improves and empowers a person from the adversity and often lack of clarity they have in the moment towards the awareness and freedom towards what they do want now.
Life Coaching is a profession that is profoundly different from consulting, mentoring, advice, therapy, or counseling.
The life Coaching process addresses your specific personal projects, business successes, general conditions and transitions in your personal life, relationships or profession by examining what is going on right now, discovering what your obstacles or challenges might be, and choosing a course of action to make your life be what you want it to be.
You might have an obstacle in your communication with your children, where you feel you are not being heard and are worried for their welfare. Life coaching will enable you to get to the source of what this obstacle is and make changes in your communication style to enable you to have the results you want in your Parenting role.
I will always approach your current situation from the place of the Here and Now. The present moment is all we have. In order to find a way to be unstuck we must learn to be in the Here and Now. The past has already happened - we can’t change that, and the future has not yet arrived. Anxiety and fear cycles occur when we oscillate between the past and present, ignoring the power we can have by being in the Here and Now.
My coaching relationship with you is one of enablement, where I will continually give all the power back to you, the client. I believe that you know the answers to every question or challenge you may have in your life, even if those answers appear to be obscured, concealed or hidden inside.
My skills are about knowing the right questions to ask and having the right tools and techniques to empower you to find those answers within yourself.

Self Care - Getting Your Own Needs Met
Avoiding overwhelm - Managing Anger, Upsets, Frustration and Stress

What Will You Experience?
Life Coaching sessions can be conducted face to face, however, it is becoming increasingly popular to conduct them over the phone / video chat services like skype, FaceTime or Whatsapp. I also have two lovely Labradors who we can take for a walk while chatting through your intentions. Sometimes people prefer this natural format of strolling in the countryside. Biscuits for dogs will be provided!
The Sessions are 1 hour long and the subject content is initiated by you. You start the conversation with sharing a little bit about what is going on in your life and how you feel about that. From there I will ask questions to entice the creativity out of you, at a pace that is right for you in the moment.
The success of life coaching is highly dependent on the individual and their desire to change. But rather than dwelling on the past and probing what has gone before, a life coach has a more positive outlook and will concentrate on the future and encourage personal development.
What Will I Get From Life Coaching?
- Michelle provides the tools and support for you to broaden your perspective and open your mind, hence enabling you to reach your goals / intentions.
- to a large extent this is down to the individual to realise your own self worth and self belief that has, for one reason or another diminished. Michelle will look to empower you by helping you to make, meet and exceed your ambitions, in both your personal and professional life.
- in the sense that you will go from where you are to where you want to be, in effect reaching your goal and creating deeper meaning to your life and to the quality of your relationships.
