What is Life Coaching?

Life coaching means different things to different people and it might conjure images of a wishy-washy, airy fairy, hippy, ineffective industry but that’s not me at all and these are some of the reasons why I wanted to get involved in coaching so I could dispel some myths.

I am not about auras, star signs, hypnosis or reprogramming your brain. I won’t look at your past lives, contact dead spirits or teach you secrets about how to wish for things. What I will do is help you take real and positive steps forward by making specific and calculated actions to improve your life, career, business and relationships.

I have learned from experience that you can have all the well-meaning people around you that you can find but good intentions do not equal action or improvement. I only made big leaps forward in my life when I had mentors that had experience plus the will to encourage me and push me in the right direction.

In today’s society it’s very easy to lose sight of who we are, what we really want out of life and what makes us happy. It’s also easy to get so wrapped up in the day-to-day grind that we find it difficult to move forward professionally and financially. I know all of this from experience. Sixteen years ago I was homeless, ten years ago I had a successful career at blue chip companies but I didn’t have any freedom, five years ago I had several successful businesses but I’d lost sight of what I wanted in the rest of my life. Today I share my time between my vineyard, family, two businesses and coaching, I have found my own perfect combination.

My varied background enables me to give straightforward practical advice and support to my clients. If You’d like to know exactly what kind of life coach I am and what I could do for you contact me for a free chat.

Building Confidence and Self Esteem

cnfdncIn the UK we tend to think people who are confident or ambitious are cocky or arrogant so often people hold back in the fear of being knocked back down again by those around them. Confidence and arrogance are not the same thing and it’s OK to have confidence in yourself.

Maybe you never had a lot of confidence or you did in the past but somebody took it from you by holding you back or events beyond your control made you doubt yourself. It can be hard to pick yourself up from these problems but it can be done.

Events in my past meant that I found myself homeless as a very young man and it was quite a fight to pick myself up and build a new life for myself. Situations that have arisen since then made me doubt myself too but simple strategies and techniques I developed helped me get through those times and succeed regardless of those events or what other people said.

This Life Coach Kent site is about helping people and one of the most important things I help people with is conquering fear and helping to build confidence. It’s hard to get motivated or make life changing decisions if you have low confidence or no self esteem so if you would like help with getting faith back in yourself and the courage to improve your life, drop me a line, I would be glad to help. Use the form on the Contact Page to get in touch and I will call you as soon as I can.

Getting Motivated

mtvtnGetting motivation and staying motivated is not always easy. Seeking inspiration to draw on when you are stuck in a rut is important for all of us. Even if you know you need to make changes in your life, it’s far easier and comfortable to stay where you are and stick with what you know.

Many people get a personal trainer at the gym because they know with someone waiting for them to show up and monitoring their performance they can’t make excuses to stay at home and they are encouraged to stay motivated. A life coach can do the same for keeping you motivated, monitor your performance and keep you on the right track when improving your life, career, business or relationships.

A life coach can also be similar to a personal trainer at the gym in the way you often know what you need to do but the small tips and tweaks to improve performance and encouragement is all you need to see things through.
