Personal Life Coaching

Even when your life is already quite successful, and you are not held back by any serious “problems”, you may still have ambitions to reach further in certain areas of life. This is where Personal Life Coaching has a role to play!

  • You may want to improve your performance in your career, in your business, or in your sport.
  • You may want to grow and develop on a personal level, to become more confident, and to be more at ease in social situations.
  • You may even want to completely transform your life, to reach toward goals that you never before dared to dream of, personally, professionally, and spiritually.

With personal life coaching you can…

  • break dysfunctional life patterns that hold you back from living the life you desire
  • develop high self-esteem and confidence in all your endeavours
  • unlock your full potential to be all you can be
  • feel good about yourself and the life that you live
  • live a life with purpose and meaning, and enjoy being alive!

Using the “Wheel of Life” in Personal Life Coaching

Personal life coaching is a process which is designed to help you clarify your ambitions and formulate your goals – be they professional, social, behavioural, spiritual, or otherwise. To identify which aspects of your life you may want to enhance, you can use the Wheel of Life;

Personal Life Coaching; Wheel of Life

The Wheel of Life is a visual representation of the various components that life can be seen as consisting of. You can download a pdf of the Wheel of Life by clicking on the image above. Then, by rating your level of satisfaction for each component, you get a snapshot of which areas of your life need the most improvement. Those are then the areas that we would start with addressing in your personal life coaching.

Personal life coaching helps you identify what you need to do to reach maximum satisfaction in each aspect of life. It also helps you see what personal difficulties may have been blocking your efforts to achieve this level of satisfaction already. However, the real value of personal life coaching lies in its capacity to help you overcome your difficulties, so that you can be free to achieve what you want in life.

My approach to personal life coaching

As in counselling and psychotherapy the working relationship between the client and the therapist/coach is the single most important factor impacting the outcome of therapy/coaching. Basically, you need to feel that I really “get you”, that I understand where you are at in life and where you would like to get to, for your personal coaching to be optimally useful. You can read more about the similarities and differences between life coaching and counselling in the article “Life Coaching and Counselling.”

Meaningful Life Coaching

I use the term Meaningful Life Coaching to indicate what my approach to personal life coaching is like. Meaningful Life Coaching recognises the importance of having a sense of meaning and purpose in your life. It keeps in clear perspective the “big questions” of life, the existential ground that forms the often overlooked backdrop to all that we fill our lives with. Only by taking an existential perspective on all your decisions, big and small, can you reach the happiness and joy that you truly wish for.

REAL Life Coaching

The exact process of your personal coaching sessions is of course based on who you are as a person, what your situation is like, and what you want to achieve. Your sessions will be tailored around you, to suit your particular situation the best. Nevertheless, there are a few recurring principles that tend to come into focus for most of my coaching clients. E.g. the four components of REAL Life Coaching – Responsibility, Empathy, Authenticity, and Limitlessness – which is a perspective to understand Meaningful Life Coaching from.

Mindfulness-based Life Coaching

My approach to personal life coaching also incorporates mindfulness practice. With mindfulness-based life coaching you will enhance your awareness of all aspects of your lived experience, rather than through “second-hand”, intellectual speculation. This helps you increase your understanding of yourself, and helps you see how you can achieve what you want.

 

Most of my life coaching sessions are done at my clinic in Sherwood, Brisbane (inner South-West), face-to-face. If this is not suitable for your situation, there is another option; to do Life Coaching online or phone.
