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. 

Performance

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.

“Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don’t matter and those who matter don’t mind“.

What is trauma?

‍What if I said we have all experienced Trauma? This is a bold statement but there are misconceptions around the use of the word ‘trauma’- what it means and what society deems to be a ‘trauma.’ When we consider the Greek origins of the word ‘trauma’ meaning ‘wound,’ we may find we can reflect less upon what may or may not be considered to be a trauma and more about what has created wounding in our heart and soul?This blog looks at The 3 Es of Trauma – The Event, TheExperience and The Effects. My intention is to offer a perspective which is person-centred and focused on the uniqueness of trauma for each individual.

Couples Therapy and why it helps

How can I help? When was the last time someone asked you this question? And when was the last time you asked someone this question? If I were to ask you this question in the context of a relationship: how can I help you in your relationship? I’m curious what your response would be. I may not know your response but what I do know is that it is a valid response and there is a place you can receive that help.

Open to possibility.....The power of coaching

This July I will be 57 years old, 57! No idea where the time has gone (..oh apart from a pretty full-on career in financial services, bringing up a family, all the usual helping out at clubs, helping my husband run his own business, various qualifications etc. etc.) By a somewhat happen chance my boss decided to give four of us in the opportunity to go on a coaching course. I causally said “why not?”, thinking it was a couple of days in a classroom with a bit of light essay writing. It turned out to be a fairly academic, self-led Level 7 Certificate for Senior Executive Coaching and Mentoring which took over a year to complete, including practical coaching hours. At the same time, I was taking part in quite a challenging senior development program as part of which I was provided with an executive coach.
