THE POWER OF COACHING
"Thank you for your kind and brilliant work. You have handed me the tools along with the strength and vision to move forward. Thank you for taking the time to help me and for letting me feel comfortable enough to call you. You are a gift. Your kindness will always stay with me and be passed on to those around me. It is people like you who hold humanity together, you’re an essential link." - J
The brain is dynamic and can be radically rewired in response to experiences. When we are going through difficult times, our brain adapts to the demands of our current situation. It does this in an attempt to protect us.
But all too often, these protective mechanisms end up trapping us.
When we exist in a world that tells us our purpose is to serve others, and that our worth is based on how much we can sacrifice and self-efface, we adapt. We get better and better at giving of ourselves to others and lose the knowledge and skills to take good care of ourselves.
No matter what we do to improve our external world, without doing the inner work - understanding what feelings, beliefs and relational elements have led us to this point - and taking informed and effective steps to rewire, we will be stuck with a brain that is wired to just survive, not thrive. We will find ourselves frustrated.
Fortunately, our brains are pliable throughout life, and we can decide to rewire ourselves to live differently. By deciding to participate in my coaching programme, you will be taking the first step in loving, supporting, and prioritising yourself.
