“a person employed to help people attain their goals in life.”
A life and mental coach, like a sports coach, is there to help you attain your goals in the most effective way, to cheer you on and also to tell you when you’re off track. To help you make a plan to achieve your ambition and find a path through the chaos that is real life. To help you figure out your next steps.
If you see a gap between your current life and where you want to be.
That gap might be in your personal life, your professional life or, especially for entrepreneurs and business leaders, it might be a combination of the two.
A life and mental coach adds insight, objective perspective and enthusiastic support to help you take your life, career or business to the next level. To help you live your biggest goals and dreams.
Coaches have the ability to view things from afar — in what some call ‘helicopter vision’ — and to shed new light on difficult situations. Often they can act as a sounding board through tough decisions, help sharpen skills, and motivate.

Yes, but it’s harder and slower and you might not know where to start.
A life and mental coach’s role is to help you get where you want to be more quickly and more efficiently.
They hold you accountable so you follow through, give a fresh perspective to find a route around current blocks or obstacles, cheer you on when you are doing well and keep you going when it’s tough.
A life and mental coach focuses on helping you achieve your goals and supporting you in the creation of proactive steps to live the life you want rather than working through past issues, trauma or addiction

If you are leading a business you might find the support of a business coach will help you:
The process starts with a 1 hour appointment where we get to know each other and lay out the foundations of your goals and the plan to achieve them.
Then we can decide on an appropriate time frame, this usually starts at 3 months but can continue as long as you want or require it.
Usually we see you in person once every 2 weeks with email and telephone support in between if you need it.
There’s no “one size fits all” answer – it depends on where you are going and how much you want to put in to get there. This is all about you, your goals and your next steps.
