Training, qualifications & experience
I trained with the Coaching Academy in Personal Performance Coaching and also SFEDI Awards Level 5 diploma in Personal Performance Coaching.I became fully qualified as a Personal Performance Coach in September 2018.
The skills below I am now putting into use as a Life Coach with my individual clients.
My main job of 20 years has been working closing with families individually with parents to make changes within themselves, as a couple, family to make the children's and the family life better. This was the reason I decided to train as a Life Coach as I feel this to be my vocation.
I have experience in the following:
Relationship issues (Adults, children).
Parenting difficulties (I am also a qualified nursery nurse, Family support worker, Family resilience worker, 0-19 Practitioner) for have 20 years of experience.
Working with professionals in the Teaching profession, Counselling, Health, Social Care.
I am also a qualified and experience Holistic therapist for over 28 years in Aromatherapy, massage, Reiki and Crystal Healing. I use this knowledge and approach in my coaching to ensure all your values and views are respected and to ensure you are treated so you feel able to explore and open up knowing you will be fully supported in your journey.
Low self-Esteem-I approach this in a holistic way
Bereavement, trauma, loss- sensitively supported to make your life changes to move forward. If you are still in counselling please continue and when this is right for you please contact me. I am trained in Brief therapy so have a very good understanding of the difficulties you are coming to terms with.
Victim of Domestic Abuse ( I have good understanding as I run Domestic Abuse groups in my other job) Non-judgemental, sensitively supported for you to move forward to a happier life. For Life Coaching you must be ready to move forward and accept you are a survivor and no longer a victim. If not ready get the counselling support first and then when you feel this is right for you please get in touch.
Health -wrong diet, poor sleep, exercise but no routine, tired, lack motivation. Let me support you to improve this.
Spirituality-lost, not practicing and regret it-need a better life balance. Get in touch to see what you feel are the reasons that have got you stuck. Let's explore what you can do to get back on track.
General well-being-need to change, lack confidence, low self esteem, lack energy- Life coaching can support you to make these changes.
Work-Not reaching your potential- unhappy with work, thinking of changing, Lets discuss this and look at your options, strengths, support so you can make a decision, take action to improve your situation.
Relationships- Feel you are not going anywhere, not the person you should be-lost, bad habits which are affecting interaction, relationships with others. Need to make personal changes for a better you. Need a better life balance-please go to my website and get in touch.
Aspirations-Make dreams a reality, develop your potential, find your life balance, better lifestyle. Please get in touch.
I am also an Holistic coach trained in Aromatherapy and other massage as well as other treatments.
I am a Reiki 2 practitioner
I believe having these skills helps towards what I bring to my Life Coach sessions for my clients.
I live my life in a holistic way, believe in having a positive lifestyle which includes positive actions, thoughts, friendships,Negativity is not welcome in my world as this is destructive and can only bring you pain and unhappiness.
I truly believe although life always brings challenges to us we can use this to make us stronger. We always have a choice to let what has happened to us or that person control us or get back in the driving seat (no matter how difficult).
All of us have been somewhere we wish we had not wanted to be (many times) you might still be there.
Find the spark to ignite the strength that will help you move forward one step at a time. If you are at rock bottom there is only one way to go-upwards where a better life is waiting for you. You are not alone, your strength will grow, you will find you again. There are positive people, services waiting to help you all you have to do is approach them.
When you are ready after this support please get in touch with me to help you achieve your goal.
