1. You are Carrying Unresolved Issues
There are a new breed of life coaches out there that are awesome at helping you safely release trauma and old past issues to get free. The reason why a coach is so effective for doing this rather than a therapist is that coaches also maintain at least a partial focus on going forwards and empowering you with new ways to do this.
I love guiding people through this process as the moment they realize they can finally be free of their past is often very joyful (although can be painful too). This is valuable to me as your coach, because I get to know you better and when we map out the highest vision for your future, it is vastly different once we have cleared the major issues of the past than what you can conceive still dragging them with you.
I always offer my clients the tools they would have needed in past difficult situations now, so that they can feel totally safe in the world and equipped to handle any eventuality. It’s an important part of allowing you to become more confident.
2. Some aspect of Life is tripping you up
You are ‘good to go’ in nearly all respects, but you have that one thing, picking the wrong partners, over eating, not sticking to your workout routine, sabotaging yourself at work, not standing up for yourself, being lousy with money…
The ramifications of that thing, the thought processes and frustration you have around, it is stopping you from going further forward in the areas that are working for you. It undermines your peace of mind and self-confidence.
We create these blocks and barriers to keep us safe, because we aren’t ready to let go of our unresolved issues (see above) or we don’t know a way forward that feels right for us.
When we are READY to let go of the past (which is always when we find our how) we can effectively change the behaviour in a way that LASTS and finally experience more ease in our own skin.
This enables us to be free to focus on our success.
3. You want to re-invent yourself
Much more than a transition, this is more of a throw away the rule book and start over.
Re-invention is so freeing and empowering. Often we wait until life throws us a major curve ball before taking this option, but once we are there, it’s amazing.
It takes courage, total commitment, willingness to go where you’ve never gone before and listening to your soul to forge a totally new path.
4. You are Transitioning into Something Different
I work with people wanting to change careers, get promoted, start a business, embark on a nutrition & exercise program or begin studying or traveling.
There are those who are looking to unleash their master piece, begin a social movement, begin or end a relationship or something else.
This is a prime time for consulting a coach. They know how to help you gain CLARITY and break down your DREAM into manageable ACTION STEPS in a way that give you ease.
They will give you feedback, inspire you to persist, show you how to overcome resistance, fears and doubts, leverage off your strengths, build momentum and SUCCEED.
5. All of your friends seem to be following their own path and you are just lost
A coach will help you tease out your strengths and look at where they intersect with your dreams and help you find a powerful direction to follow.
They will help you find your inspiration to go forwards, find your confidence and try new things.
Once you get in the groove of making your life work for you, there is no looking back.
6. You have no sounding board and you want more out of life
You could really do with some one to help you find your own wisdom and strategize with you, listen to your wins and challenges, offer the benefit of their experience and help you grow.
We may have a family that aren’t good role models or who don’t understand us. We may feel as though we are the round peg in the square hole.
Our friends are all busy with their lives and we don’t want to impose and we can end up going around in circles and feeling like there’s more, but not quite knowing how to access it.
We want that valuable person to support us, help us gain clarity and traction, connect us with resources and help us gain momentum
