Coaching In Glasgow

The term 'coaching' itself comes from the Anglo-Saxon word for 'carriage', which is a means of transporting something from one place to another. 

What is a Coach?

A coach guides you from where you are in life, to where you want to be in life and is someone who aims to help and empower you to make, meet and exceed personal and professional goals - including excelling in the workplace, becoming happy and fulfilled in the home, exploring the self and the world, and achieving ambitions. 

A coach provides clients with the tools to confidently face difficult situations, push past emotional barriers and eventually view life with fresh, hopeful and enlightened eyes. 


How is coaching different from counselling?

The fundamental difference between counselling and life coaching is that counselling usually investigates the roots and causes of problems, whereas coaching focuses mainly on the future to encourage personal-development and self-improvement. 

What can a coach help me with?

By utilising effective techniques to help you with all aspects of life. If you've ever struggled with anything - whether it be sticking to a diet, learning a language, moving out of your comfort zone, standing up for yourself at work, keeping a stable love life, or achieving those things you always wanted to do (see a whale, go to Asia, climb a mountain and other so called 'bucket-list' activities), then consulting a coach could help you.

We will approach things pragmatically.  Through questions and exercises, we will try to get a good idea of how you look at the world.  From this we will be able to identify the most effective route to your goal/goals. 

Some people may feel intimidated by the idea of change and so need to take things very slowly to fulfill their goals. However you approach life, we will be able to tailor your sessions to fit. 

Other Areas Where Coaching Can Help

Love Life

Do you ever wonder why the opposite sex never seems to be interested in you? Do you wish you had the confidence to approach someone you have your eye on?  Do you have commitment problems?  Are you struggling to deal with a divorce or relationship breakup?  Whatever the problem, we can help you to understand your love-life problems and then work towards rectifying them.

Business Life

Starting and running a business is tough work.  Sometimes we get so absorbed in hard work we neglect ourselves.  Coaching can help with confidence, leadership, decision-making and work/life balance. 

Personal Life

Perhaps you feel like you're not making the most of life.  There's so much to see, do and learn in this world, but often a lack of confidence, time and will-power can cause us to stay inside not doing anything. Coaching can motivate you to do the things you want to do, so you can finally fight the urge to procrastinate. 


Improvement is at the heart of life coaching.  Whatever your skill, coaching could help improve it.  Whether you're an athlete, an artist, a writer, a performer, or a musician - adopting specialist techniques will help you to push your limitations and exceed expectations.
