You can ask friends, family, colleagues for advice – but they will give you advice and views from their perspective, with their experiences, their beliefs and their values – it might not be right for you. How many different views will you get? How do you know what is the right path for you? Coaching helps you to understand what’s right for YOU. As a coach provide a confidential, non-judgmental, unbiased safe space for YOU to find the right solution for you – no teaching, no advice.
As a working parent, we go through different challenges at different stages of our family lifecycle.
From being a parent for the first time, children’s first days at nursery, then onto primary, secondary schools, thorough various exams, then higher education, university, leaving home. At each stage, our role as a parent changes, as does our relationship with our children. As they become independent, develop their own values, beliefs and understanding of the world, having an independent unbiased adult to help them navigate their feelings, their thoughts and their dreams, can create a clarity for the future which, we as their parents, can not provide.
Our parenting doesn’t stop when they leave home. When they raise their own families, we still play a part in their lives. At the same time, as the family changes, new challenges and opportunities arise for you, your career, your ambitions and the life choices as a parent will change. Whether it’s due to circumstances beyond your control (e.g. separation, divorce, death, illness, etc.) or not, how you deal with the challenges (and possible opportunities) will ultimately impact your life. This can be quite daunting and exciting. Coaching can help you navigate your path to that brighter future.
How we balance those ever changing needs can raise questions on the choices we make of ourselves.
Coaching gives you the space, time and clarity to help you make the choices that’s right for you. You control the path you take.
Understand & Learn
Coaching helps you understand and learn from your successes, your failures, your true values, your beliefs and how they all contribute towards what you want, why you want them and how you can achieve them. It helps tell you the strengths and resources you have to take on any challenge.
Prioritise & Decide
Coaching helps you identify the true reasons behind your decisions, your priorities at a point in time, the implications, the impact it has on your life and those around you.
You make decisions that are thought through.
Action & Motivation
Coaching helps you define the actions which will create the wins in life.
Action isn’t just the effect of motivation, but also the cause of it. The moment you start moving and taking action, you’ll start to feel motivated. You feel a sense of purpose and control.
