  1. The power of decision making

    The power of decision making
    I recently made a decision that had been long coming but took a while to make. Once I made this and then acted on this, the feeling afterwards I cannot underestimate. The power of making the choice I made created a shift in my outlook. The fascinating thing is once this was made the avenues and roads just seemed to...
  2. Reflection and self-exploration

    Reflection and self-exploration
    The power of reflection cannot be underestimated. Reflective thinking helps us plan and gives us an insight that we may miss. It is an integral part of the learning process; it allows us to learn more about ourselves. Reflecting enables us to learn and grow by stepping back and thinking. It is a valuable skill that can help you in...
  3. How do you deal with the elephant in the room?

    How do you deal with the elephant in the room?
    How often do you think about what is not being said in a conversation? I think this is such a huge area that people miss in a conversation let alone how to deal with it. In coaching, when you are trained well, you learn to pay attention to your instinct. Just for a second think about how many times you...
  4. Just do it!

    Just do it!
    There is absolutely no doubt that we all have fantastic power, yes we can change our lives in an instant. What a tremendous feeling that is, to know that you can change your life in a split second and that no one can stop you, once you recognise this fact then you are on the road to truly sorting yourself out...
  5. Positive, Mental Attitude

    Positive, Mental Attitude
    What is a positive mental attitude? There is a recurring theme in life that if you have a more positive mental attitude that you will be more successful, healthy, happier, and have more energy to deal with the adversity that life throws at you. From my performance coaching background, this is a mindset I have helped and guided others to...
  6. Confidence

    Confidence
    Confidence is such a vast area in all of us, have you ever reflected on how confident you are already, flipping it to a positive from a negative, thinking about it differently. In my coaching practice, confidence appears so often. I think sometimes people don't realise how confident they are already. The word confidence is interpreted in so many ways...
  7. What is shame?

    What is shame?
    Have you ever thought about what your shame is? We all carry shame in some way, for example, feeling embarrassed and guilty about something. Your belief system of not feeling good enough or others are better than you is not a nice feeling. As a coach, you need to be aware when your client sat in front of you the...
  8. Reflection on self-coaching a gratitude attitude

    Reflection on self-coaching a gratitude attitude
    In my coaching and supervision sessions, I hear so much negativity. I do like to shift the paradigm sometimes and ask for the positives if the situation allows this to happen. It seems strange to my clients when I ask a simple question like “What have you got to be grateful for”? In life, we have plenty to be positive...
  9. Effective question technique in coaching

    Effective question technique in coaching
    How important is questioning in coaching? Extremely important is the answer. How does it differ from questioning in training? It is very different. In training when you question, you question to get to an answer. You drive for the answers you want using open questions or good trainers do. You always know where you are going with your questioning. Coaching...
  10. Reflecting on your use of coping strategies

    Reflecting on your use of coping strategies
    What does coping mean? I often hear in my coaching sessions from my clients that they are coping. I always think about what the word coping means to them. I think some people may not even know or realise they are using coping strategies/mechanisms, the word coping is very subjective. Believe it or not, there are between 400- 600 strategies...
