COACHING

explore | unpick | deep dive | clarity | reflect | develop | action

Professional coaching supports someone to bridge the gap between where they are now, to where they would like to be, far more effectively than if they worked alone.

Coaching offers skills for personal development and to enable a resilience for lifes challenges.

Working with Wendy helped me become aware of certain beliefs that had been getting in the way of success. Her calm persona makes it easy to be open about personal thoughts and feelings. I have seen great results already!

‘Life is certain to be uncertain…how we decide to journey through it is what makes the difference to this very precious life, don’t waste a moment of it!’
Why use a coach instead of a friend or colleague to support you to reach a goal?
  • A coach is trained to really listen to you without interpretation, interruption or judgement allowing you to be your true self and unravel your thoughts in a safe space.
  • A coach will have professional techniques to unpick and unfold what inhibits you or has stopped you getting from A-B so far ,creating opportunity for new solutions.
  • They will be a professional sound board that is confidential and non judgemental. A coach works with YOU…not you as mom or a job title or anything else that maybe has become a label…authentic you!
  • Your goal may have had some longevity in your head. This will have  created emotions and frustrations. Coaching offers the funnel to sift through to the reality and bring back the mojo for your goal.
  • A Coach will make you accountable and challenge you along the journey,  key elements to your coaching relationship.
We understand that people and their aspirations are unique. As your coach, we will work alongside you to offer a supportive and motivated journey to get you to your chosen destination.
  • We use skilled and powerful questioning techniques so you will be clear on what you truly desire and who you are at the core
  • We will assist you  to create practical, realistic and motivational step-by-step action plans to reach your goals
  • We will provide support through any changes or obstacles that may be encountered during our coaching relationship
  • We create tools, techniques and strategies for you to make lasting change and success…lifelong skills!

MINDFULNESS

Mindfulness is paying attention in a particular way: on purpose, in the present moment, and non judgmentally. Jon KabatZinn

Our minds are our HUB, our steer for all that we do and feel , and yet it is often the last part of our body that we take care of…always assuming it will ride out any storm that hits!  Taking steps to develop skills to support mental wellbeing against life’s unpredictability is a wise choice indeed.
Mindfulness isn’t fluffy or mysterious, but it does take practice. It has been developed through research, using centuries old practice blended with modern day techniques including Mindfulness based Stress Reduction and Cognitive Therapies, approved by The British Psychological Society and recommended by NICE.
Rigorous medical studies on the practice of Mindfulness including MBSR and MBCT, have now proven to assist in stress reduction, depression and anxiety as well as many other areas of mental wellbeing. It has also been noted to assist with clarity and focus, enhanced creativity, improved quality of sleep, pain reduction, memory enhancement.
In mindfulness we create personal awareness for ‘what’s going on with me right now. This barometer lets us know when our body or mind is NOT OK, preventing burnout and other issues escalating or relapsing. Slowing down and taking notice of how we feel physically and mentally, allows us to tune in honestly with ourselves.
Learning to switch down a gear and ‘take a moment’ means we are not focused on past or future events, just the here and now which allows us to experience a richer, more vibrant and peaceful living.
Wendy is a qualified Mindfulness Teacher and offers the Mindfulness Now eight week programme. She also offers workshops, walks and retreats.
