I qualified as a Personal Performance Coach (Life) and decided to specialise in Parent coaching because I believe that parents are the most important and the most influential people in a child's life and I work to encourage parents to be confident and positive parents and to be the parents they want to be.
I also offer Stress/Anxiety management coaching. I feel we live in a society of increasing pressure. Stress and anxiety has become a huge issue for many people, young people in particular. Anxiety, if it becomes chronic, can have a profound effect on our physical and mental health. Coaching can help you identify ways of reducing and managing your anxiety and stress levels to promote physical and emotional well being.
Coaching is about identifying goals, taking action, achieving and solving problems. Coaches believe you, the client, has the answers you need and the skill of the Coach is to bring out those answers for you. Coaching is confidential and non judgemental.
Coaching is not therapy, counselling or mentoring and coaches do not give advice.
If you are motivated for change and want to live the life you choose, please contact me.
