There are currently many life coaches in the UK, offering many different approaches to intervention. To me, life coaching is about supporting you to find a way to live your best possible life, on your terms.
We are all born pure and unlimited; unfortunately, modern life can lead us down paths of fear and exclusion. Society, the media, family and friends are just a few influences that can act negatively, and affect the way we think about ourselves and our place in the world.
Change is not always an easy process – as humans we are programmed to be habitual and to conform to ideals and values that we may not truly believe within ourselves. We are trained to limit ourselves to behaviours that we believe others will find acceptable, staying within our comfort zone and suppressing our TRUE selves.
However, it is also important to remember that change is possible, and magic can happen in a moment.
As your life coach, I will support you to:
*Discover your true self and your place in the Universe
*Challenge, and live beyond, fear and limitation
*Develop achievable, realistic goals
*Develop new behaviours and habits
*Discover and enhance your sense of self-value
*Find happiness, calmness, emotional resilience and strength
The work we undertake will not be easy – it will require commitment and honesty. At times, it may be difficult to navigate, but I will guide you at every step, and results can be achieved in a surprisingly short space of time. It can also be fun! I will try to ensure that every session, and every piece of work, is a positive experience.
It is no secret that domestic abuse has escalated over recent months, particularly in the wake of the COVID-19 lock down. I have noticed a significant increase in reported incidents and issues, and for this reason I have decided to focus my practice more in this area. Some questions that I am being asked more frequently are:
*What is abusive behaviour?
*Why is it happening to me?
*Why do I seem to attract abusive partners?
*Is my behaviour abusive?
*What can I do if I don’t want to leave my partner, but I want to stop the abuse?
*What is a healthy, equal relationship?
*As a man, it’s difficult to admit that my partner is abusive – I’m not taken seriously – what can I do about it?
*Is my child’s behaviour abusive, or just naughty, and what can I do about it?
I can help you to gain clarity on these questions and any others you may have. If any of these questions mean anything to you, contact me, I can help. I have 13 years experience of supporting victims and perpetrators – see ‘About Me’ at the top of the page. I have experienced domestic abuse first-hand – I get it. I have learnt how to ensure that I never suffer it again – you can do the same.
Live beyond fear – live your TRUE LIFE.
— Carl Jung

the door, and I threw away the key.”

Child On Parent Abuse
Many parents find it difficult to identify abusive behaviour (when does difficult behaviour become abusive?)
In the year ending March 2019, 1.6 million women reported being the victim of domestic abuse, and this is set to increase.
Far fewer men than women report domestic abuse – around half in comparison, according to national statistics.
Same Sex Relationships
Domestic abuse is equally as likely to occur in same-sex and heterosexual relationships. Around 25% of people in same-sex relationships will experience some form of abuse.
