Have you ever felt you were stuck in life? In your job, relationship, whatever situation – just incredibly stuck? Trust me, everyone feels like this at some point in their lives. Some seek help, other struggle on. Often just burying their feelings and ‘getting on with it’, because that’s what is expected, or at least that is what you think. Not dealing with issues in your life can have very negative effects on both your mental and physical health however, and why would you want to ignore them? After all, you’d be going to see a doctor if you had a sore leg or a persisting cough, wouldn’t you? Mental health is just as important as looking after your body.
Going to a life coach is not something people want to shout from the roof tops. You may think you get judged by friends, colleagues, family. Depression, anxiety, emotional struggles are often seen as a sign of weakness, even more so when you are a man. A shame really, because life would be so much easier for everyone if we would look after ourselves mentally and emotionally too and not run ourselves into the ground at work or at home without talking to anybody about it.
I am a coach and holistic counsellor who aims to create a space for people to explore whatever they are dealing with in life. Some people come to me with marriage problems, others with questions about their career and where they want to take it next. Then there are people with other issues, such as ill health, confidence issues, financial struggles, redundancy, anything. I offer a listening ear, and help with releasing what is holding people back from feeling happy and fulfilled. Through deep inquiry I support people to find their own answers, because they have them! All too often this internal wisdom has been ignored for years and is just waiting to come to the surface and be acknowledged. I listen, observe and reflect back, shining light on and releasing limiting patterns and beliefs, to help people find a sure and whole connection with themselves.
It is wonderful to see people realise they knew the truth all along. All it needs sometimes is someone to help them see it.
