Louise Gross - Best You (Life & Career) Coaching
As a Certified & Accredited Life and Career Coach with NLP I can help you overcome obstacles, build confidence and become more motivated to take action and create massive personal and professional change. The bottom line is there’s no change without action and coaching is a great way to facilitate this. 'Your' goal will become 'Our' goal and I will be championing you the whole way. We'll build an honest and trusting relationship where we can explore, question and challenge to create the best outcome possible with you at the helm.
Life and Career Coaching doesn’t involve reflecting on the past or telling you what to do, quite the contrary, there is only one expert on your life and that's you! We work together focussing on the present and the future. Through specific questioning, coaching techniques and NLP – Neuro Linguistic Programming, which helps you think in a more positive and productive way - you will feel empowered to make the changes you want in your life or career.

But in the meantime here are a few testimonials of what clients say...
"The main focus for me was the idea of starting up a little business. At our first session, Louise quickly put me at ease with her warm and friendly demeanour, as we worked through the exercises Louise was very patient and understanding. We worked out all the elements that are needed to create and maintain the business, what the priorities are and how and when these will be achievable. Louise made me realise just how far I’ve come already and has empowered me to keep going.
She re-ignited the passion in me to get started and has helped me figure out the ways to achieve my goals. I now have a clear path in front of me with the practical next steps for creating success"
"My marriage had recently ended after many years which was an enormous shock. Louise listened without judgement , this allowed me to think. Her questions helped me to prioritise what I needed to do. I need to go back to working full time but my confidence had taken a real beating and I felt pretty low .Understanding this Louise worked with me to realise my qualities and skills. I now feel more focused, positive and empowered. I wasn't sure what to expect from coaching maybe answers or opinions but instead the open questioning enabled me to find my own answers and come to my own conclusions. I left the sessions fuelled with enthusiasm and optimisation for the future. I certainly have my old self confidence back. I found Louise very approachable and understanding and I would confidently recommend her."
"I found the session very useful in that it helped me to take stock of where I was in relation to my aspirations, and helped me to focus on what areas needed reviewing and actioning in order to achieve this. It was very relaxed and Louise really helped me to look at the big picture. After a couple of sessions I had a much clearer picture of what areas needed focusing on. Even though I am quite a confident person I still feel that after speaking with Louise she had helped in providing more clarity in how to achieve my goals and would definitely recommend her."

"Not really knowing what to expect at first I found the sessions very helpful in dealing with general issues I have in my life and helped me put things in to perspective.
As a self confessed control freak I wanted the ability to deal with situations that were uncontrollable to me and how to deal with my emotions surrounding this. Louise helped with the exercises and also gave me some material to take home. Speaking with my husband after the sessions helped too and has made me more accepting of the way in which him and other people behave.”
