Besides qualifications, I have experience and passion. When someone asks for my CV, I confidently refer them to my two sons. Both leaders and making an impact wherever they are involved.
For years I have been grinding the mill to create an income. The saying: “Do whatever your hand finds to do” became part of my life. I have tried many forms of business but could never settle.
One thing stood out, I am passionate about people and their wellbeing, and for that reason, I embarked on a tough journey. At age 45, I enrolled to study ministry. I completed post-graduate studies and started out doing a master’s degree in ministry. Still, something was missing; I contacted pastors who were already in ministry for guidance; sad to say, I never received the mentoring I hoped for. Spending thousands of Rands and a great deal of study hours turned out to be a life lesson. I did not like ministry, but I love people. If only I had the guidance and clarity before following this route. Living an unfulfilled life bursting with frustration is unbearable. But I learned a lot of valuable things worth sharing. I embarked on a fulfilling journey to equip myself to be a Life Coach. Out of experience combined with the coaching know-how, I learned how to improve life and save time for your destiny.
My Life motto became “You must like to go to work and like going home”
Adding value to people’s lives through a thorough life-authoring process is the centre of my activity. As a Life Coach, I serve as the blind spot mirror, soundboard, and route marker to bring you safely to your life destination.
Find meaning, fulfilment, success, well-being, and happiness.
If these words resonate you should consider Life Coaching. A life coach helps you to move forward.
Life coaching provides clarity, intending to help clients determine and achieve personal goals. Reachable goals is a noble thought but to go ONE better, institute growth. Helping you to achieve progress, life coaches use multiple methods that will help clients with the process of setting and reaching goals.
”We can call this The 1 Percent Rule. The 1 Percent Rule states that over time the majority of the rewards in a given field will accumulate to the people, teams, and organizations that maintain a 1 percent advantage over the alternatives. You don’t need to be twice as good to get twice the results. You just need to be slightly better.”
"The whole principle came from the idea that if you broke down everything you could think of that goes into riding a bike, and then improved it by 1%, you will get a significant increase when you put them all together,"
British Cycling's performance director Dave Brailsford
Participants improve their lives by doing challenging and worthwhile things. Your Life Coach is a knowledgeable “Gym partner” to keep you going and more importantly, in the right direction.
It is beyond barriers of comfort where you meet yourself. Life coaching embarks on an intentional conversation that empowers a person or group to fully live out their calling.
If reaching your destination is the purpose, your Life Coach, through ongoing conversations, facilitates personal growth and goal attainment quicker, easier, and more comfortably than doing it alone.
not a psychiatrist
Think of your coach as an action-oriented mentor that can help you reach your goals.
When you want to look at your face you go to a mirror. It is not different when you want to look at your life, but only there are no images. You will need an honest reflection from a ‘n person who is authentic and passionate about life who will point out your blind spots.
Fulfilment is found in sharing my life, my desires, my ideas, and my love amongst many other sharable features of our existence. And then sometimes it is tough to figure out how to start out, make progress and sometimes how to end, which is usually a tough one to consider. The aim would be to get unstuck, to be liberated.
The help of someone who can identify my strengths and weakness helps to overcome obstacles that are holding me back. Life coaches are people like that. Some need to see a therapist to obtain the desired outcome for their life but in more frequently you will benefit from an experienced Life Coach.
So, what is the difference?
Life Coaching is therapeutic in nature but there are some major differences between Coaching and Psychiatry. A coach looks at the present and work toward the future, while a therapist looks at the past and help you manage the present. Coaching provides structure and accountability the other are more open ended. In Coaching you will work at determining goals and how to achieve them, while in therapy direction is determined by how the client is feeling and what would make them feel better in the moment and what was different since previous visits and what people and events have triggered feelings.
I just love the saying “Nothing can beat experience”. The saying used to be you cannot buy experience, but that became obsolete with the availability of positive people who is just passionate about people, to see them develop, grow, and liberated from what ever held them back.
Any coach desires to develop his team members individually. This will benefit the collective attempt with the aim to win, overcome or profit. This is achieved by determining the goal and working on a strategy to be victorious. I just love the term Eco-Metrics, deriving from the idea of an ecosystem. You as an individual respond in your own unique manner to your direct environment. Two people placed in the exact same scenario will not behave or react in an identical manner. The Neuro-Coach Method™ is developed to address just that. Through this coaching method I not only identify the obstacles and talk about them to make you feel better, but I also help you to remove obstacles by changing the way you see them and the way you feel about them. Multi-Level Neuro Processing™ is an effective method to facilitate behaviour change. Make sure your Coach is registered and qualified!
This is what I do, I observe life and facilitate behaviour change.
