One of the favourite strands of my work is Life Coaching sessions. I love how present it makes me as I sit with my clients.
Life Coaching is a 1:1 talk therapy, which focuses on what’s going on for the client in the present moment and how they wish to move forwards in their lives. It is a completely non-judgmental process.
The Life Coach facilitates the client to gain fresh perspectives by listening empathically, reflecting back to the client and using powerful questions. This aids the client to gain clarity, release blocks and suffering, and set goals.
The Life Coach sees the client’s potential and helps them to gain insights and start living a life of more contentment, peace, self-love, and confidence.
I work with clients via Skype and Zoom.
Please contact me if you would like to work with me.
If you’ve been financially affected by COVID-19, I can work with you at a reduced rate or on a donation basis.
I look forward to hearing from you.
This morning, I rise at 5am. I do some breathing and get dressed in the half-light.
I shut the front door quietly and slip past blindfolded houses. I feel like I’m playing a trick on society, the only one awake.
Do you ever question why you feel bad? The majority of the time I feel bad is as a result of a thought I’ve just entertained.
Without the thought, I’d feel perfectly fine. I’d be in the moment.
I’m delighted to announce the return of my Positive Living classes, starting Thursday 5th May, 8-9pm, in the beautiful Abbins House Holistic Centre, Eyre Street, Newbridge.
For those of you who can’t make Thursday evenings, I’ll be running the course on Wednesday mornings from 10:00-11:00am starting 18th May.
Join me for a fun, inspiring, interactive class where you will meet like-minded people and receive tools and tips to live a happy, peaceful, fulfilling life.
Classes will include mindfulness, meditation, breathing techniques, and exercises which will challenge your thinking, unblock fears and get to know the real you.
The theme of Week 1 is Presence – being present, mindfulness, breathing, meditation, becoming aware of thoughts but not attaching to them.
The theme of week 2 is Thoughts & Feelings – becoming aware of our thoughts, observing but not attaching to them, questioning them, challenging our beliefs, allowing our feelings and uncovering what’s beneath them so we’re no longer ruled by them.
€40 for a 4-week course.
We’ll be running a class on Homeopathy and Health on Saturday 28th May from 10:00-13:00.
Come along to learn how to use your first aid homeopathic kits to treat yourself and your family for everyday ailments.
On the day, we’ll also be sharing helpful tips on diet, supplements and natural remedies to boost health, happiness and general well-being.
Bring your questions and we’ll be happy to share our knowledge.
The cost of the class is €30.
Please contact us via Facebook, email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or phone (087-3336709) to secure your place.
The past month has been weighed down with money worries, career anxiety, fear for the future and feelings of insecurity. This in turn has had an effect on my self-esteem; how I see myself and how I feel when I’m with others.
The main outcome of a much-needed business coaching session this week was that I need to love myself. And yesterday, I had another revelation.
Today I attend a Life Coach for a much-needed, sort of dreaded business coaching session. We speak about timelines and deadlines. The Life Coach draws a “To-Do” box on the whiteboard. We also discuss ideas, fears and things that are weighing me down.
I confess that I’ve really been beating up on myself lately. I’ve been comparing myself unfavourably to others, calling myself names and believing that I’m “less than”. My mean streak is at a peak.
A couple of friends recommended watching First Dates, a television series that films real first dates in a London restaurant. I’ve since watched the entire first season and it’s totally addictive.
As I binge on this hilarious reality TV show, I laugh a lot. But I also shed a few tears.
A dear friend sent me a link to an interesting TED talk on love and relationships given by Mandy Len Catron. The theme of love and relationships had already been playing on my mind.
After watching the clip, I confessed to my friend that I long to share intimacy and affection with someone of the male variety. I quickly added that I’m just feeling impatient and that I should simply be present.
I awake several times in pain. I might still be able to fit in a workout tomorrow morning before my flight, I try to convince myself.
The following morning, I can barely put weight on my foot. I had felt the twinges in a couple of fitness classes but had chosen to ignore them. I had pushed myself too hard and hadn’t listened to my body. Maybe I need to become more balanced in my approach, I muse philosophically while simultaneously huffing with resistance.
