Leveraging Your Potential
Here at Going Coastal I have a deliberately informal approach – don’t let that fool you though – I am a fully credentialed PCC Coach and member of the International Coaching Federation, abiding by the ICF code of ethics, so a trusted professional. My role is to offer supportive-challenge and new perspectives in a “curious not critical” manner to aid your thinking processes.
Check out the About link before reading further – it will give you a clue as to whether I am the right coach for you.
As your coach, every question asked and every action taken has purpose – since creating meaningful experience facilitates action.
Your initial consultation aims to identify the level of support you may benefit from. Some areas of coaching support can be addressed within just one coaching session in general clients book a course of three or six coaching sessions.
Applied Environmental Psychology is a foundation of all my work – incorporating a range of modalities.
My coaching provision is broadly separated into two areas (Personal Coaching and Business Coaching), both incorporate and target coherence, performance and change. A systemic approach helps you identify and achieve ecologically sound trajectories (and goals), ensuring that progress in one area of your life is not detrimental in another. Whilst the lines between business and personal coaching of course blur… If you are interested in predominantly Business Performance Coaching please visit the leadership link HERE
Cognitively, physically and emotionally accessing “awe” has been identified as a key lever for motivation, resilience, pro-social behaviour and general well-being – all essential qualities for a healthy and successful life.
Beach Coaching (Blue Health Coaching)
90 minute Beach Coaching sessions provide a change in environment for you to explore your coaching goals free from distraction in a location that promotes atypical thinking, using techniques designed to make the most of the coastal “blue space”. The beach provides a great backdrop for targeted performance coaching and aligned lifestyle coaching. Facilitated by myself or Blue Health Coach™ within my trusted team of associates, your experience incorporates the latest neuro-conservation insights.
Coastal Coaching Adventure
Using the outdoor environment creates greater personal fluidity and develops an ability to access “Littoral Wisdom” and embody a “BlueMind attitude”. Even more immersive than the 90 minute Beach Coaching sessions a half or full day investment in your personal alignment will assist you in navigating significant personal and professional life change… These sessions have been described as “extreme coastal coaching” and “life changing”. We focus upon creating inner balance, developing ability to navigate ambiguity and discovering ways to “show up fully in the world”, to enable you to express yourself with Compassion, Creativity and Courage. Perfect for pivotal moments in your life / career… or to address the big question… How can I live a purposeful and meaningful life!? A blog post HERE provides deeper insight into these days.
Introducing you to your nervous system can in itself be mind-blowing. Getting acquainted with your breath and heart rhythm is the first step towards thinking in a balanced way, so developing “interoception” is essential. Whether your sense of transition has been actively instigated by you or it has arrived as if from nowhere, coherence coaching helps create perspective.
Developing comfort with ambiguity enables you to remain empowered and flexible – we are all in transition all the time!
Navigating your intuition, instinct and rational insights helps ensure the life changes you make come from a place of wisdom. Personal effectiveness is always a consideration… and NLP Change Work can support you in changing less helpful habits. Maintaining a positive trajectory and living a meaningful life requires inner alignment… this is the domain of mBIT/mBraining, Yoga and Blue Health / Littoral Wisdom Practices.
Change Navigation Coaching
Whilst we are continually in a state of flux – and many of the approaches above will be relevant… Examples where this coaching is relevant include – divorce, conflict, new family, house move / relocation, new job role, redundancy, retirement. This is not “counselling” and whilst NLP can resolve previous historical patterns, this modality of coaching is primarily “future and outcome focused” and “proactive”.
Together we will explore your support network – accessing collective and social wisdom – who to engage and how… Emotional Intelligence playing a role here.
Together we will establish progressive momentum – through defining tangible steps, the tools associated with Performance Coaching coming into play enabling you to move forwards.
Together we will foster a non-judgemental response towards self and others, increasing self confidence, minimising conflict and enabling collaborative lifestyle, psychometric personality profiling can be useful here.
This form of coaching is a guided short term support package – with various coaching session durations and formats designed and tailored to your needs – blending Skype or Zoom virtual coaching, email and face to face approaches.
Personal Development Coaching – NLP Change Work
As a Coaching Professional, I work one to one with you to create healthy personal strategies. Beach Coaching allows space to reflect and question and define action. Deep change work might lend itself to an (Extreme) Coastal Coaching Adventure or Beach Coaching sessions, since often the topics of change are underpinned by well developed patterns of thought and behaviour.
- Habits and Patterns – I can assist you with resolving: fears/phobia, unhealthy eating strategies, smoking, anger, social anxiety, PTSD, sedentary lifestyles, limiting beliefs and inner conflict, motivation imbalance
- Habits and Patterns – I can assist you developing: healthy lifestyle strategies, self confidence and self esteem, empowerment patterns, resilience, mindfulness, positivity and personal drive.
- NLP also supports: goal setting / defining well-formed outcomes, putting you in touch with the wealth of personal resources you already possess, helping you prioritise your activities enabling you to achieve the positive results you deserve. NLP facilitates self-discovery, increasing your self-awareness, overcoming potential barriers to progress.
