" Life gives tough lessons for sure but I refuse to sit down and take notes. No I will learn walking and I will keep walking." This is my philosophy and I think until we breathe our last, we can’t stop living. Yes, we may take a pause or two, go on a vacation, a retreat or the other, but we must always believe in the adage that there is strength in what remains. It is thus a passion of mine to help my clients discover that inner strength of theirs which will enable them move on after each pause in life, sparked by any emotion, action or reaction.
Here therefore are my goals and objectives:
As a Well-Being Coach therefore, I would rely on my greatest strengths which come from my past experiences. Today, this past gives me credibility in as much as I can stand out to be that life coach who knows what she’s coaching about. I have been there, lived there, done that, and moved on. This is my core competency. Others include my ability to listen to the other for as long as necessary, to empathize and not scrutinize nor ‘judge’. I have been married for six years and went through a very challenging marriage, bitter divorce, and I left my kids behind. I know the pain of losing something as precious as a child, a sibling, a marriage and even your sanity. I have worked with the down trodden in society especially during the years I practised as a lawyer. These marginalized categories included street kids, prostitutes and prisoners.
Coaches are "resource multipliers." They nurture your ability to multiply the options and resources already at your disposal. In addition, they provide resourceful insights from their own vast experience. This is what I want to become and do as my legacy.
As a personal coach, I want to help my client "rise to the occasion," whether it's to pursue a cherished dream, to overcome a frustrating challenge, or to realign their life with their deepest values and passions. I look forward to double as confidant, mentor, and sounding board. But, l also want to prod my clients, stretch them, and "hold their feet to the fire if they let me." l want to take their aspirations as seriously as they do.
