You're a life coach? What's one of those???
Besides being a SAHM and the owner of Parents and Teens, I am also a Life Coach and I thought you might like to know a little more about what I do and what it involves.
I think, looking back, lifecoaching has always been there in the background as if it is and was something I felt drawn to. Take me into any large bookstore and I can quite easily while away an hour or so in the self help book section!
For anyone who has never heard of lifecoaching it can best be likened to a coach or trainer that a top sportsperson or athlete would work with. No such person at the top of their profession or even on their way up would even contemplate NOT having a coach. It's the person they hire to work alongside them to get the very best results possible. Would the Olympic athlete win the gold medal without his or her coach? Maybe , but more than likely not. It's having that person on your side and wanting the best for you that makes all the difference.
And so it is with lifecoaching, as coaches we work with our clients to help them achieve their goals and make the very best of their lives so a bit like an artist working with a blank canvas except in this case the client gets to design their own life. Imagine that! Whether you want to start a new business, stop smoking, sail a yacht across the ocean….or just get organised and learn some time management skills, whatever it is a lifecoach can help and is certainly the person to do it!
Most life coaches work with specific niche markets according to their skills and passions. I myself have chosen to work with Parents, Teens and pre-teens. The kick and shove to finally become a life coach came when my son went through a period of being bullied at school. That is a story in itself and will keep for another time except to say that at the time I felt very much indeed that there was way too much emphasis on re-educating the bully but not so much support available for the child being bullied, in this case my son. From that moment on I knew I had to do something to help other families cope with the trauma that we had just been through, to help them know that there IS light at the end of the tunnel and that they WILL come out intact the other side! This has become my personal mission and the whole reason why I trained to be a life coach although I don't only work with issues surrounding bullying. I work with parents and their teenagers on the whole range of parent/teen issues be it communication, stepfamilies, motivation, peer pressure……absolutely anything and everything that life is throwing at you right now I would invite you to in turn throw my way and see if I can't help.
I am passionate about helping parents and teenagers as I am sure you are too, otherwise you would not subscribe to this newsletter. This afternoon I am being interviewed by a journalist from a Canadian teen magazine which is fantastic and only helps to spread my message to teenagers of the world, that there is help out there and that daily life between parent and teen doesn't HAVE to be a battleground!
If you feel, having read some of what I have written, that you may be interested in working with me and finding out more, I offer all my clients a complimentary telephone session. My time is complimentary, the only cost to you is the cost of the call. There is no obligation at all to buy coaching from me, no sales pressure, EVER and that is because coaching is not something that can be ‘sold'. My clients come to me because they want and need the coaching that I can offer them, it's as simple as that. The no obligation session is really for you to ask any questions you may have and for us both to see if we feel that we are a good ‘fit' and could work together.
One of my clients said to me in our second week of working together ‘Lyn, I can't believe it, this stuff really works, I can't believe that after only one week the whole house is a much calmer place'. How much would it be mean to you to consider that whatever difficulties you are currently facing with your teenager could be starting to turn around and one week from now could be going in the right direction? Think about it! If you are at all intrigued, please contact me on the e-mail address below.
Until the next time!
