Personal Life Coaching in United Kingdom

With Penny Cortvriend

Coaching is about helping people to make positive changes in their lives, thus enabling individuals to understand themselves better, to sort out what is worrying them or holding them back and to find a way forward that works for them. In this way, people can work on meaningful solutions and move forward with clarity and confidence to make changes that are right for them.

My approach to life coaching is based on the following beliefs:

Everyone is able to make positive changes to their lives once they have made the right choices for themselves based on their values and beliefs.
The relationship between the coach and client (the coachee) is based on trust. A life coaching session is a confidential conversation between two equals and one where the coachee finds their own personal solutions to issues or problems that are of concern to them.
Life coaching is about change, not changing the coachee as a person but a process whereby the coach helps the coachee to move forward, working through any sticking points and journeying towards their aspirations. In this way, any changes made are meaningful for the coachee.

As a coach I have helped people to work through all of the following issues:

Career change and returning to employment after a period away from work
Relationship and family issues, including juggling caring responsibilities
De-cluttering or completing a home or work based project
Retirement planning or downsizing
Communication, e.g. becoming more assertive
Improving confidence, self-esteem and self-acceptance
Achieving clarity about choices
Making health and lifestyle changes
Work life balance
Stress management
