Hello, I'm Rebecca. Firstly I'd just like to say well done on taking action to improve your life. This may be the first step or maybe you are well on your way but it shows you are taking control of your situation.
Benefits of Life Coaching
Coaching is an empowering process that helps you to live your life more fully and with purpose. It can help identify what’s important to you and give you more choices as to how you engage with the world. As your coach I work alongside you to create an action plan to implement lasting positive changes. When you improve things in one area of your life you often find that other areas improve too. Working together we seek out and challenge limiting beliefs so you achieve more than you thought possible. You will learn tools that will help in all areas of your life. Clients comment that they appreciate the time and space to think and be fully listened to by someone non-judgemental.
Here are some of the areas that work with people on:
Dealing with change
- Deciding on career options and what to study at Further or Higher Education
- What to do next following redundancy
- How to move forwards after a break up or divorce
- Increasing confidence after a bereavement or other life changing circumstance
- How to improve communication with family, friends or work colleagues
- How to develop more fulfilling relationships in your work or personal life
Living the life you want
- Making the most of your time so you can do everything you want to do
- Creating and developing positive habits and breaking negative patterns
- Finding or rediscovering your purpose and sense of direction in life
- Reducing stress and incorporating healthy habits that support holistic well-being
- Understanding yourself better so you can lead a life more in alignment with what you want
- Identifying your values and what's important to you so you can make decisions with confidence
- Identifying limiting beliefs and obstacles that prevent you from being your best self
- Overcoming procrastination and increasing motivation
- Recognising and utilising your current skills and strengths to build confidence
Why I got into coaching
I have always had a wide range range of interests and tried to pursue many of them in my work. This has provided stimulation, variety and helped me to develop numerous skills. I used to berate myself for not being able to just focus on one thing and simply choose a career to follow. However, I now see that my varied skills and experience provide me with many benefits. I get to try new things, I'm always learning and developing, I'm adaptable and not afraid of challenge.
In a world where being a specialist is highly celebrated (and rightly so) I want to encourage those people who are multi-skilled and multi-talented to embrace their strengths and live a life they love however that takes shape. My aim is to help and support people to enjoy the many facets of life, not just focus on work. I've come to realise that how I lead my life is far more important than my job title.
It's important that a client feels comfortable and confident with me as their coach so I offer a free initial session of 30 minutes to find out more about each other and answer questions.
I work with people on a 1 to 1 basis - face to face, Skype and telephone. Walking is a great way to improve clarity and can be a great way of getting results fast.
Training, qualifications & experience
As a coach I have worked with clients from business, the NHS, retail, education and post graduate students.
I completed my Personal Performance Diploma (Life Coaching) and NLP (Neuro Linguistic Programming) Practitioner training with The Coaching Academy, which is the leading coach training provider. In 2018 I was shortlisted for The Coaching Academy's Best Newcomer Award.
*Personal Performance Diploma
Other Qualifications and Experience
*PGCE in LifeLong Learning
*BSc (Hons) Sport & Exercise Science
*NVQ3 Outdoor Education
My work experience includes community development, training / teaching, project work and outdoor education. I love working with people; passing on skills and seeing them develop. I also have experience of mindfulness which I try to practise on a regular basis.
Areas of coaching I deal with
- Personal development
- Redundancy coaching
Other areas of coaching I deal with
I also deliver workshops on topics including holistic well-being and time management.
Change is a process not an event! Everyone is different so the number of sessions required can vary, however I find that working together over several sessions is best for developing a good working relationship and creating a powerful impact. Generally I find 6 - 12 sessions work well. The cost is £60 for a 1 hour session with a discount for block booking.
Get in touch to organise your free 30 minute consultation so we can discuss your requirements.
It's important to recognise that successful people have coaches - working with a coach isn't a sign of weakness. Coaching is an empowering process and will have a massive impact on improving all areas of life, not just the area being coached on.
