CHANG­ING

Kent Life - - Heritage Life - WORDS: Caro­line Read PHO­TOS: Manu Palomeque

Whether it’s in our pro­fes­sional or per­sonal lives, some­times we could all do with a lit­tle di­rec­tion and

clar­ity. Meet four in­spi­ra­tional life coaches

Other times clients come to coach­ing be­cause they feel stressed or un­der­val­ued at work or have reached a plateau in their ca­reer and don’t know how to move for­ward.

It’s so easy to com­pare your­self to oth­ers and mea­sure your own suc­cess in re­la­tion to theirs, es­pe­cially with the preva­lence of so­cial me­dia. The truth is, we are all at dif­fer­ent stages of our life jour­neys and have our own set of val­ues and mo­ti­va­tions. There’s no right or wrong.

The abil­ity to build rap­port with peo­ple so that they feel com­fort­able shar­ing this time and space with me is key. Coaches hold a space for clients to ex­plore ideas, op­tions and feel­ings they oth­er­wise may not talk to their friends or fam­ily about.

‘The best thing for me is when I see my clients get

the re­sults they want’

The best thing for me is when I see my clients get­ting the re­sults they want. When they have those light­bulb mo­ments of clar­ity and re­alise they can take the steps to make things hap­pen, that’s the best. Even the small­est of steps for­ward for a client is re­ally re­ward­ing and re­minds me of why I changed ca­reer to be­come a life coach. www.lucys­tany­er­life­coach.com
