Sonia Duggan, CPCC ACC
I work with people who are ready to change - but don't know how.
My clients are creative, but not creating, busy, but not fulfilled. They may have the trappings of a successful life, but not the essence. They may need more confidence, more clarity, or more courage to reach for their dreams.
If you would like more meaning or more joy in your life, if you want to make a difference in the world, but you’re not sure what you have to offer that’s unique and compelling – let’s talk.
5% of profits go to MCKS Charitable foundation, where it supports the homeless and the hungry.
Life coaching: whether you want more of something: career prospects, challenge, confidence, fun, fulfilment, health and fitness, passion, purpose, self-belief, spontaneity, success, work/life balance – or less of something: boredom, depression, lack of direction, loneliness, pressure, procrastination, stress, stuckness – I can help you to design the life you want to lead. Together we will identify what is really important for you in life – your core values – and we’ll create a future that inspires you. I will support you as you decide on goals you want to achieve and create accountability for the actions that will get you there.
Parents: would you like the job of bringing up children to be easier? I can help you to raise your children’s self-esteem, improve your children’s behaviour, deepen your relationships and make family life more enjoyable. My parenting classes can help you and provide a support group with other parents at the same time. Alternatively, individual coaching can help you to identify who you want to be as a parent and how you’re going to get there.
Some of the things my coaching sessions include:
- Belief in you – we are all naturally creative, resourceful and whole, capable of finding our own answers and achieving the goals we agree on
- Challenge (what would be a stretch for you so that you gradually expand your comfort zone and become the person you’re longing to be?)
- Commitment (I will be working side by side with you to achieve your dreams)
- Compassion (we are all doing the best we can, we all have difficult times in our lives, and we all make mistakes.
- Courage (yours to go into the hard-to-be-with areas of your life, mine to say what I believe in your interests, even if I think you will fire me)
- Curiosity (yours and mine)
- Discovery (who are you really? Who could you become if only you believed in yourself?)
- Laughter (even depressed clients laugh with me)
- Passion (I’m passionate about helping my clients to live life to the full and be all they can be)
- and Inspiration!
Complimentary, no-obligation 60-minute consultation
To discover if coaching is right for you, and if we are a good fit for each other, I offer a one hour confidential, complimentary telephone or Skype taster session during which we can identify your challenges and goals, and actually experience some coaching that can help you move closer to them.
Training, qualifications & experience
I trained as a parenting group facilitator with the Parent Network in 1996 and continued my interest in personal development over the years. I trained as a coach with the Coaches Training Institute (CTI), one of the most prestigious coach training organisations, and I have the following accreditations: CPCC from CTI and ACC from the International Coach Federation (ICF). I have also trained as a Writer’s Coach with RD1st on a course sponsored by NAWE and Arvon and accredited by Performance Coach Training Ltd.
In the past, I have worked as a secondary school maths teacher and a supply teacher in infant and junior schools. I have also spent over ten years as a marketing manager.
