(This is part of my 20 minute writing practice. I write for 20 minutes, check for typos, choose a pic if I’ve time – and press send! you can find out more here)
Ok, back to writing practice first time since November…breath…and timer on….
“It seems to me that working through hard transitions in life is exhausting. And there is no moving away from the tiringness of it all. The endless considerings and thinkings. The decisions to be made, both small and immediate, as well as seemingly huge and long term. And the impact of them all.
The transition I have been navigating seems to have become a full time job in itself. Being a mother is central, and learning to also take care of myself well enough to do that, with all the love and careful care needed – for everyone. Then I also have 3 roles in my working life, and steering through these can feel overwhelming. What to prioritise, when, who, how…..
There has been tremendous fear at play. Constant evaluation of what is true, how to trust myself, – even if to trust myself at all. (Hence writing this is just a bit scary! – but keeping going…. doing it anyway…)
And, through it all, coaching has been a constant source of accessing an assuredness.
something within me to draw on.
Continuing my own coaching support has been an essential way of making space to really listen to an inner knowing. A steadiness within me that I can find and sit with for a while.
Opening a space for listening can bring such wonder.
And when I am coach, sitting with a client, I never cease to be in awe of the amount of learning we do together, in partnership. Together we journey through the experiences of being human in what can seem a very complex and turbulent world is quite something.
I was intrigued that what was most important to those who contacted me after writing about accessible coaching was exactly that – to make coaching an accessible service for everyone wherever possible.
My coaching currently covers a number of continents, working with teachers in Nepal, and across to a mother of 6 in Canada and those in between. The work that my clients do in coaching, positively impacts their families, friends and communities as a whole. By me, holding a space for that small amount of people, they go on and support others.
And that is what every good coach does.
All my Spring Forward offer places are now full. Due to the response and in the spirit of making coaching fair and accessible for everyone (and making the world a better place of course!) I am keeping the fee the same as the Spring offer, for anyone who wants to coach with me this year. I am full right now but will have space after Easter.
And please remember my offer at the end of my blog posts is always there – if you know anyone who can’t pay at this point for coaching but would benefit enormously from it at this time – please get in touch.
My own coaches are Katie Harvey and Robbie Swale. I don’t seem to have the vocabulary to express the difference their coaching presence has made in my life to write here. But I couldn’t be more grateful.
There are many good coaches out there, and many more people who would hugely benefit from their practice. I know some wonderful coaches who are changing lives for the better. If we are not a good fit, there will be a coach out there who is, and I can always point you to them!”
It’s scary for me posting these again! ….aaaand I must admit I went over time on this one ….but I am getting back to a regular writing practice, something consistent….
We become what we practice – and we are always practicing something
(Help me Robbie Swale – who said that?! It is full of truth….)
With all the difficulties that are happening right now in the world, if you know of anyone who could benefit from coaching, anywhere, I offer pro-bono coaching engagements with charities, or with those who need it as part of my practice. Please get in touch to talk it through.
If you’d like to read a few more of these, then please sign up at the very bottom of this webpage. And if you would like to experience coaching with me I always offer a free 1 hour coaching session, with no sales, just coaching. You can book it here.
