When do we allow ourselves to share how we fully feel or what is going on…? With who? If we turn to our loved ones – partner, husband or wife, family or friends – they will listen and do their best to help us in any way: giving us some supportive comments or even advice on how to deal with our feelings or the situation.
In some instances, we might not want to tell them everything: we don’t want them to worry… to judge us… or to show to them our vulnerabilities… We might not feel comfortable to open so much.
Imagine a space where you could be yourself, where you could say and share anything and everything. You could speak about your deepest fears, doubts, questions, uncertainties, thoughts, feelings, passions and dreams… Imagine this safe space where you would be fully listened to and heard without any judgement… Imagine this space as being fully safe, confidential and comfortable where you could be really you.
The person in front of you will not give you any solutions or advice. They will help you to see the situation from a higher perspective and from different angles… to unravel your own responses… to become aware of some eventual blockages, payoffs, limiting beliefs or thoughts…
It’s like being so open and so YOU that you might feel « fully naked »! The person will ask questions and at times, be challenging. You might find yourself stretched… the purpose is to help you by maybe understanding what is at stake, who you are, what you are yearning for, what is preventing you to feel differently and move forward.
That person who could help is called a life coach.
I genuinely believe that we have all our responses and resources within ourselves. We might not be aware of them but we are already whole.
If you are in your midlife, juggling the different areas of your life, feeling overwhelmed, stuck or lost, you might want to hire a life coach.
How effective can life coaching be? Thanks to a study from the International Coaching Federation (ICF), commissioned in 2015 and undertaken by PricewaterhouseCoopers, the effectiveness of coaching has been proven.
For example, here are 4 benefits identified by clients from this survey:
1. 80% of clients improved their self-confidence
2. 73% of clients improved their relationships
3. 72% of clients improved their communication skills
4. 67% of clients improved their work-life balance
I hope this will help you to understand the work I do.
If you have any questions, please don’t be shy!
