Hello and thank you for reading my profile.
I offer a coaching model that supports you to explore your purpose and values, so you can make choices in your life that align with them. Coaching can help answer such questions as;
How do I truly express who I am? What values and qualities are important to me?
We each of us hold this knowing but may have got distracted with the busyness of life, and not had space to allow this to unfold. Coaching allows this. In a compassionate and supportive space you can explore your authentic self and look together at actions which support you.
Perhaps you would like a new job where your skills and talents are recognised, or you want to develop more loving empowering relationships with others. You may feel that you want to take a new direction in your life and explore what that may be, or you may simply asking be the question, what do I want from life?
When we connect and align our actions with our values and trust our inner guidance, then we can move to a place where we can embrace change. We can learn to see the mindsets and beliefs that keep us static, doing what we have always done and the limiting effect this has.
Sometimes we really want to make changes in our lives but find it hard to. We may have had certain roles in life, and developed ways of managing life’s stresses and it can be tough when we want to do things differently. We can question if what we want is really possible. In coaching, it is about taking small steps to change, and building on these - the changes we want really are possible!
My experience includes working with many different issues;
building healthy self-esteem and confidence
moving towards positive loving relationships
managing work issues and relationships
managing family and cultural pressures
developing good decision making
I am a LGBTQ (lesbian,gay, bi-sexual, transgender, questioning) affirmative coach.
I also offer coaching outdoors, walking in the Peak District, or the green spaces of Manchester. It can be liberating connect with nature, noticing the beauty of what is around us as we talk about those matters of importance to you. Please contact me for details if you would like to know more.
Coaching sessions are set at a frequency that meet your needs. Often people start with more frequent times, such as weekly or fortnightly, then may move to monthly. This can be agreed at the first introductory session.
