Full Spectrum Coaching

Personal Coaching

A coach will help you discover your patterns that are in the way of living the life you want. A coach will help you identify what kind of life that actually is. Having someone who can listen, who can ask provocative questions, who can be compassionate and honest with you gives you the skills for life, to find the peace and clarity you long for.

As a certified facilitator of The Work of Byron Katie, I support you to find your own wisdom path. With powerful questions, and more than 20 years experience and practice of The Work, I guide my clients to end their suffering, and time and time again I am amazed by this simple too that never fails. The Work will enable you to release the blocks and restrictions you carry. Whether those challenges are around relationship, grief, loss, addictions, money, work or any other area of life, I have worked with hundreds of people over the years to facilitate them to live a life beyond all of that.

These days, more and more people are turning to professional and life coaches. I invite you to join me for a free session to discuss how I might help you. In the meantime, you may wish to do the following "Life Purpose Flower" exercise to get an idea of where you life is blooming and where it is not. (scroll down the page to the exercise)

Professional/Leadership Coaching

In these changing times, the leader who is stuck in doing things a certain way is at risk of being left behind.

Are you worried about your business?

Concerned about your role as a leader when faced with all the indications of "The future of work"?

Are the disruptions in your industry putting pressure on you to lead differently?

How do you respond to climate change and the environment at work?

How do you cope with the changing demands of a millenial workforce?

And what about the innovations in technology?

Can you know how all these things will affect your business?

It's a lot. It's overwhelming trying to figure it all out. And it's time to question your thinking.

Because it is in your mind, I coach you to discover any suffering or stress you have. Then inquire with you into those beliefs. Everything can be questioned. You are then left with creative thinking and the ability to adapt to change. Change your mindset and your ability to lead will change. Change your thinking and you can change the impact you make. The Work enables you to stay grounded in the realities of what is going on around you in the workplace, and yet gives you the skill of agility and focus. I coach you to discover what is underneath the challenges or uncertainties of your industry.

You need courage and clarity to do your job well today. The Work is perfect for you if you are a leader who dares to be vulnerable, make mistakes, and know how to recover quickly when the boat tips over.

I'm a dinghy sailor, and as much as I love sailing on bigger yachts, there is still nothing more thrilling than being on a small boat and understanding that I need to able to respond with every new gust or wave that comes my way. I invite you to sail with me. No matter how large the vessel you command, you can always apply the basic rules of agility, responsiveness and awareness to your ship.

The Work helps you tap into your own creativity, intelligence and wisdom. Beyond the waves of rights and wrongs, beyond the winds of ups and downs, beyond the tides of challenges and obstacles I offer you a tool that will help you stand true and tall to yourself. A captain of your own mind.

If you are a leader, manager, entrepreneur and /or team and want to transform the beliefs, concepts and thinking that is holding you back in your work, I can work with you personally, or I can bring in a team of fellow certified facilitators of The Work to join me as we shine the lights of clarity, efficiency and focus on your organization and bring you to your next level of work.

The Life Purpose Wheels for Personal Coaching.

When you think about your life there's a wonderful exercise I like to do with my new clients that involves drawing circles or wheels. In the centre circle you put your life purpose. And if you don't know what your life purpose is, you can place your dream for your life. And if you don't want to think about future, it could actually be what you are doing now. You could write "Me Now" or "Reality". You decide what is in the centre.

Get a big sheet of paper and write that in a circle in the centre. (scroll down to the bottom of the page to see an example)

Then around that central point, around that dream, purpose or reality I ask you to draw more wheels on the following topics: Career, Health, Wealth, Creativity, Charity, Spiritual, Relationships, Family. And if any of those categories don't resonate with you at all, then you create your own circles. Instead of Charity you may call it generosity, giving, service or paying it forward. Rather than have a circle called spiritual, you might decide to label it Awareness. Religion, God, Nature or even Transcendence. They are your wheels, it's your life. You name the areas as best fits you.

On your paper, make a list of the categories you are going to draw.

Then go through the list, and as you contemplate each category, draw the circles around the centre circle and decide on the size, will it be large or small? Or somewhere inbetween? Large circles indicate that you feel fulfilled, happy, and successful in that particular area according to what you have placed in the centre.

Some of these circles will show you where your life is blooming. Those are the area you draw (and colour if you wish) as large, healthy, and vibrant.

Then some of the other circles might show you where you are needing to grow. What areas do you think are small, dull, unattended to, dormant, neglected or ignored? What circles are you ashamed of drawing because they are so small.

As you draw and contemplate your life purpose wheels, be aware of any negative, self-attacking or shameful or embarrasing thoughts that you have while you do the exercise. Write those thoughts down.

Once you have your life purpose wheels drawn, you have a better idea of the areas of your life that you can work on. The areas that are lacking your time, attention or love and care. You also have an idea of what thoughts are pressing down on you in those areas you might have found more difficult to thrive (for whatever reason).

Your life is precious. You only get one chance at it. You will never be here at this time, in this body, with this environment, people, colleagues, family and friends again.

Look at your life purpose wheels as a drawing of a flower. What needs watering, nourishing, light? Become the gardener of your own life - and create time to let your life bloom.
