Life Coaching

“I need a change….”

  • Understanding your purpose, your WHY
  • Moving forward towards a solution, not delving in the past
  • Challenging yourself and taking you out of your comfort zone
  • Developing new thinking habits
  • Setting measurable goals (personal, financial, physical, work etc.)

If you are ready to try something new, outside of your comfort zone, to have a different result in your life, you could benefit from life coaching.

What is life coaching all about?

  •  Understanding your purpose, your WHY
  • Setting measurable goals (personal, financial, physical, work etc.)
  • Moving forward towards a solution, not analysing the past
  • Challenging yourself and taking you out of your comfort zone
  • Developing new thinking methods

What is Coaching?

  • The process of coaching holds you accountable on the goals you set yourself. It is the equivalent of having a manager, sports coach and personal trainer all in one.
  • Having a life coach is an independent and objective view of a dilemma or issue from an outsider’s perspective. This means your coach can facilitate your thinking process and help bring you to see a new perspective on the issue at hand.
  • During the coaching process you will have insights or “aha” moments – the feeling of “why didn’t I think of that before?” By making these new coaching methods part of your life, you will experience many “aha” moments, not only at home but also at work. The coaching process explains why these moments occur and what to do to experience them more often.
  • Coaching is not therapy, consulting, training or giving advice.

Who do I typically work with?

I work with people who want to see change in their lives. I choose to work with clients who have a growth mindset, ready and willing to change. Clients who are currently successful, wanting to move to another level. People who are financially successful.

What clients do I not work with?

I choose not to work with clients with a fixed mindset. Clients who do not believe that change is possible, and who can’t accept to be challenged. Clients who are struggling financially.

How do you ensure a compatible partnership?

Overall, be prepared to design the coaching partnership with the coach. For example, think of a strong partnership that you currently have in your work or life. Look at how you built that relationship and what is important to you about partnership. You will want to build those same things into a coaching relationship. Here are a few other tips:

  • Interview more than one coach to determine “what feels right” in terms of the chemistry. Coaches are accustomed to being interviewed, and an introductory conversation of this type is usually free of charge.
  • Look for stylistic similarities and differences between the coach and you and how these might support your growth as an individual or the growth of your team.
  • Discuss your goals for coaching within the context of the coach’s specialty or the coach’s preferred way of working with an individual or team
  • Talk with the coach about what to do if you ever feel things are not going well; make some agreements up front on how to handle questions or problems.
  • Remember that coaching is a partnership, so be assertive about talking with the coach about any concerns.

Testimonials / What Our Clients Say

  • “The idea of coaching appealed to me as I think that it is just as important to develop one’s management and leadership skills , as it is to keep updated and up-skilled in the practice of audiology, if one wants to strive for excellence in professionalism. I would like to thank my coach for giving me an opportunity to change my life. As a young woman I have always known that something was missing in my life. I didn’t know what, how and where to start until I met her. The process helped me to discover who I really am and what my purpose is. Within weeks of coaching I could feel that my life was changing. My husband who never knew that I was busy with life coaching, said to me one day “Something about you has changed. You are a lot calmer, you no longer throw tantrums and you are very peaceful”. The process included identifying areas where I needed change to setting up my own goals and plans on how to achieve each one of them. The activities were fun and enjoyable. For the first time in my life I experienced peace within; that inner turmoil that I had was gone. I knew that I was on a path to a whole new life and five months later my life keeps getting better. The process even led to the birthing of a beautiful poetic gift. I can never thank my coach enough for a second chance at life”

  • "To date the exercise has been constructive, engaging, and educational. Annemarie draws extensively from the neuroscience model of understanding brain function and how it shapes human behaviour, and how one can use these principles in relating to others. I find her skillful in bringing clarity and focus, in analysing a situation, and then ensuring autonomy and independence in seeking solutions, thereby leaving you empowered to apply those skills and principles in future scenarios. So whether the issues today revolve around time management and staffing, or whether there would be other issues in the future, I'm more confident that I am better equipped to address the challenges that would confront me in the future. Having started to personally enjoy the benefits of the process, I can recommend that anyone who strives for personal growth and efficiency, try it.”
