Feel free to nod along if any of these resonate (maybe a little too much?):
You’re ready to work on some things that feel stuck and need a hand figuring out how to do that
You’re listening to ALL the podcasts and reading ALL the books but want something more so you can actually DO the things you’re learning about
You’re looking for a bit of accountability to prioritise yourself and your mental wellbeing – but without it feeling like a chore or one more thing on your to-do list
You’re keen as beans to learn some tools and techniques you can use across life and work and everything in-between so you’re a bit less of a dick to yourself when life gets lifey
If any of these did make you nod – you might want to keep reading!
I wanted to gain the tools to not feel overwhelmed by the way I operated. I knew I was capable of so much but the way I processed things was unhealthy and left me paralysed by my thoughts or made me give up all together and procrastinate. This program gave me tools that taught me how to progress gently and gave me the control i needed to take action by looking at my life through a better lens.
Before you keep reading, I want to make something crystal clear – when you work with me, you don’t get a 10 step plan or any kind of template and you certainly won’t hear me tell you what to do.
That’s all on you to figure out. Yes really!
As much as you may not want to hear this right now, you know yourself best.
Maybe you just need someone looking in from the outside, highlighting things you can’t see because you’re IN it right now (that trees and forest saying comes to mind here…) and guiding you towards YOU figuring out what’s next.
There’s no fancy framework or super snazzy methodology here – just nudging (and sometimes poking) you into the direction YOU want to take things along with helping you managing your mind a bit differently.
Speaking of, mind management is a skill you can practise` and get better at, just like playing the piano or skateboarding (2 things I’ve always wanted to learn).
My mission is to help YOU challenge YOUR thinking – from a place of kindness and curiosity, not self-judgement.
I think being challenged a bit around some of my thoughts / statements – ‘is this really true… what evidence is there etc’ has actually been quite helpful – it really makes me dig deep and reflect on things and often helps me reframe my thoughts.
I also just love how you celebrate my wins and my progress – it’s really uplifting – like having a personal cheerleader (who still challenges me when I need it)
You can be a badass business owner, caring parent and all-round awesome human who gets shit done without being a dick to yourself.
Contrary to what we’ve been taught, you can learn to challenge your thinking in a kinder way, you can learn to put yourself first and you can do the hard thing while being less of a dick to yourself.
You can work on recognising the fuck-its faster (also known as all-or-nothing thinking) and tell perfectionism to fuck off when it pops up – because let’s be honest, it’s not going to get you anywhere.
You don’t need another book, podcast or self-help guru to tell you what to do.
YOU ALREADY KNOW!
You might just need a sounding board and someone who can offer a different perspective when you can’t see anything but what your brain is trying to have you believe.
I’m really enjoying your approach
Giving me practical advice that I can apply to all areas of my life. I feel like you really understand the areas I need help with and give such relevant thoughtful advice.
I ask that you commit to 3 months of coaching initially. That’s because you won’t notice a huge difference after 2 weeks – this work isn’t about quick fixes. You didn’t become a dick to yourself overnight and you need time (and support) to practice and implement what you’re learning in coaching.
Note that sliding scale options are available upon request – please email me and I’ll share more information. If you’re based outside of Aotearoa New Zealand, the cost of the packages is US$149/month (Base), US$179/month (Shift) and US$239/month (Level Up) respectively.
I’m sure you already know that coaching is all about helping you build self-awareness, asking questions to prompt your thinking, giving you perspective and guidance BUT it’s NOT therapy. I’m not a licensed medical professional or therapist and it’s outside my scope of practice to diagnose and treat illnesses and diseases. That said – therapy is awesome (huge fan!) and we will discuss if seeking professional help is needed/appropriate for your situation (and possibly the more appropriate choice).
You’re more than welcome to book in a quick chat if you’d like to (virtually) meet me first before making any decisions. I strongly believe in choice and having options so this is available to you if you need. This is a completely squirm-free chat about what’s going on for you – we’ll only talk about coaching if YOU want to 🙂
How it works: the button will take you to my scheduling page – simply pick a day and available time that works for you (note it displays New Zealand Time and you may need to use this converter to check your local time) and you’ll get a Google Meet link emailed to you automatically.
