1. Clarifying Goals

Your Life Coach will employ a range of questions and exercises to help you identify and clarify your own personal goals. From getting a new job to changing career, planning an adventure to finding a new relationship, the first step is to decide what it is you want to focus on.

2. Taking Steps Forward

The next coaching phase helps you break down your goals into achievable steps. You will be given tasks and exercises to enable you to complete the steps needed to reach your goals. This format helps you establish a track record of success to stand on, as you progress forward.

3. Overcoming Roadblocks

Your Coach will use a number of questions and techniques to help you identify blocks and adopt different strategies to remove them. At Empowering Coaching & Counselling, our Life Coaches are also fully trained psychotherapists, which allows us to offer an integrated coaching approach with counselling and psychotherapy to help you fully understand and address the root causes of any problematic blocks.

And because we know that some people can find it difficult to maintain motivation, change and achievement, especially at the end of a course of Life Coaching alone, at Empowering Coaching & Counselling we combine coaching with additional therapies which can enable you to achieve changes you can maintain, for life.
