How can I benefit from a life coach?
Life coaching can benefit people who may need some help unlocking their personal intrinsic motivation or realising/restructuring their personal and professional goals.

Life coaching strategies
Working with our clients, we utilise a number of strategies to help our clients map and realise their personal and professional goals.
Using language to break down mental barriers, create more functional life habits and improve overall communication and empathy. Neuro-linguistic programming is a cornerstone of a good life coaching strategy, as it engenders the use of positive and constructive language to help us overcome personal and professional limits.
Neuro-linguistic programming also helps clients to understand how we identify patterns and habits in our own lives, in the hope of re-defining them and making progress with new skills and new behaviours.
Strengths and preferences profiling
This is a strategy which encourages clients to understand where their strengths and talents lie. Awareness of strengths and preferences can then be utilised to improve inter-personal skills, allowing clients to make more informed choices about how we want to operate within teams or communities.
Mindfulness and perception shifting
This is a strategy which aims to change negative thought patterns, with the hope of re-framing them in a more positive light. Mindfulness can help clients to learn to be aware of unhelpful ways of thinking, whilst allowing more positive habits and thought patterns to take root.
Drawing on experience of success
This involves exploring and processing past examples of personal and professional success, and asking clients to think about how these prior instances can be built into future success.
