What is Life Coaching?

Through a series of coaching conversations, your coach guides you in your journey of personal and professional discovery. You bring your willingness and commitment to change, take risks, learn, and stretch your potential to the coaching relationship. As your life coach, Denise Paech provides a confidential environment, supportive input, and accountability. This powerful combination inspires the achievement of strong, vibrant and sustainable life changes.

 A Life Coach is:

  • Your partner in achieving professional goals
  • Your champion during a turnaround
  • Your trainer in communication and life skills
  • Your sounding board when making choices
  • Your motivator when strong actions are called for
  • Your unconditional support when you take a hit
  • Your mentor in personal development
  • Your co-designer when developing an extraordinary project
  • Your beacon during stormy times
  • Your wake-up call if you don't hear your own; and most importantly
  • Your coach is your partner in living the life you know you're ready for, personally and professionally.

(Thomas Leonard, the recognised founder of the coaching profession)

How does coaching work?

When was the last time someone:

  • gave you their full attention?
  • asked you what you wanted to talk about?
  • listened to what you had to say?
  • acknowledged you for being you?
  • cheered you on to find the right answers for you?
  • provided supportive ideas rather than their solutions?
  • was there for you, no matter what?
  • celebrated your successes with you?

People in coaching relationships enjoy all this and more in every coaching session.

Sessions are scheduled on a regular basis generally for 45 minutes, two or three times a month. Telephone, Skype or face-to-face options are available. You will have homework to do, and Denise will be available to support you between sessions.

To find out more, call to arrange a complimentary exploratory session with Denise to see how coaching could be right for you.
