I’m a coach and I always have a coach for my own personal and professional development. I could be here a long time explaining the benefits I’ve reaped in all aspects of my life and work as a result of this support.
And there’s been times when I needed something else.
I’m deeply biased towards the benefits of coaching but I’ve got no interest in selling you the myth that coaching is THE thing that will change your life. It might be…but that’s your decision, not mine or anyone else’s.
The irony in the coaching world is that some coaches shout so loudly about their services and how AMAZING they are that it doesn’t serve to help their potential customers actually pause and listen to what they really need.

We all need support yet we don’t all need a coach. We’d likely benefit from one yes but need? No.
So here’s the thing, there are 3 types of support:
🦊 Informational – we want to understand how things work
🦊 Emotional – we want to feel heard, fulfilled and connected and able to navigate our lives effectively in a way that feels good
🦊 Practical – we need help to DO something. Lifting a sofa is a lot easier with someone else to help, right?
So I wonder, what help would you benefit most from right now?
Do you really want to work with a coach to help you become more productive?
Or would you rather spend that money on paying someone to implement and action your ideas?
Do you really want to invest in another course that teaches you something new?
Or do you want to hire a coach to help you leverage all the amazing resources you already have?
Coaching is powerful and has the potential to unleash the power within you BUT it’s not all things to all people. Sometimes it’s not the most effective investment for you depending on what you need at a particular time.
So my invitation to you is to curious about what you REALLY need and make sure you get that xx
