I was sitting here the other day going over a very familiar problem in my mind. This is a problem I have tried to solve for a while and each time I try I really don't think I get any closer. In fact sometimes I confuse myself even more.
What should I call myself?
What title could I use that would tweak peoples interest and get them wondering more?
What title would sum up what I do?
Life Coach - it makes me cringe. I don't know why, perhaps because it is overused, I'm not sure. I know I can be a Life Coach, a really good one, I am qualified as one but I don't feel like a Life Coach.
Intuitive Life Coach - maybe. It more accurately depicts what I do but it still screams Life Coach.
Personal Life Coach - aren't all Life Coaches personal??
Personal, Intuitive Life Coach - it is a bit of a mouth full isn't it!!
Intuitive Mentor - I rather mentor but does it mean anything to anyone.
On and on it goes, each option is possible but they just don't 'feel' right. They are like a really lovely dress you see in a shop window, you love it on the hanger then you try it on and it just doesn't quite fit right and it doesn't hang how you hoped. You could get away with it but the feeling of it once on is a disappointment and you know it doesn't show how good you can look. It doesn't really flatter you!!
So I shifted my focus. I forgot about what I could or should be called and started thinking about what I can and have helped people with. Why would someone come and work with me? What can I help people with?
Why would you join my group or work with me one on one??
You would benefit from working with me if:
You feel alone or unsupported
You constantly talk about or focus on your problems
You define yourself by your past mistakes
You feel stuck
Your passion for life has fizzled
You are struggling to make decisions or take action
You know limiting beliefs are holding you back
Your past continues to effect you negatively
You are looking backwards more than forwards
You just know you are capable of more
You are ready for change but have no idea what to do or how
You feel lost
You doubt yourself
You know you procrastinate
Your self confidence is low
You don't prioritise you
You are unhappy
You are far too comfortable and you know it is boring
You listen to fear
You have had or still attend therapy but just aren't moving forward
You have no idea how to move forward
You really don't know yourself
You feel disconnected
You know you want someone to support you - just you
You miss the old you but you are ready to find the new you
You are plagued by lack of confidence
You know you could benefit from support with a transition in life
You are ready for positive change
You need accountability
You give, give, give and are often left depleted
You are unsure of your purpose or passion
You are lost in the how
Your own story stops you moving forward
You just don't know where to start
You know you want to change or to achieve something but you struggle with the clarity
You have forgotten who you are
You are starting out again
You are hiding from change
You feel like you are treading water in life
You feel you 'should' be happier
You are stuck in 'over analysing'
You seem to attract relationship drama
You seem together on the outside yet inside you feel like a mess
You need to acknowledge and order your ideas
Lots of reason aren't there!!!
I could probably even come up with more but I am sure you get the idea. I work with people who are feeling or experiencing all of these things. As long as you are ready to change and willing to put in the work I can help you move through and from these places.
I help people uncover their own unique information and knowledge, knowledge that you already have, have always had but have just forgotten. I support you while you reconnect to your inner knowing.
I partner with you to support you to be the best possible version of you. I empower you to do the work, I can't do it for you but I step you through it and cheer you on.
Is all of that a Life Coach?
I don't know, it feels like so much more, I just know this is what I love to do, this is what I wake up in the morning to do and this is what I am good at. If you are ready to change, to move forward, to stand tall, to rediscover who you are, to feel the power of authenticity and finally step into all you are capable of being maybe it is time you got in touch and reached out.
Is it time?
Live Life Fulfilled
Lots of Love
