Real Life Coaching Blog

Welcome to my “Real Life Coaching” blog.

The reason I created this blog is because many people who want to become coaches have little or no idea about what being a coach entails.

This blog will give some insight into the day-to-day challenges and triumphs of a regular real life coach.  It will provide a window into the workings of my coaching practice.  It will NOT divulge any of the conversations I have with clients, nor will it refer to clients in any way that would compromise their anonymity or the confidentiality of our relationship and discussions.

Thirdly, coaching can be a lonely profession – the commitment to confidentiality makes sharing and support difficult to access.  I hope this blog will provide a sense of community to and for other coaches.

I look forward to hearing feedback from you, my readers!

Over and over I see coaches who are feeling exhausted...

And you’re terrified. What if no-one comes? What if I don’t get enough clients? What if I never get any clients? What...

Supervision – somewhere to put things down.

Coaching can sometimes be a very challenging profession for me. I hear all my clients’ secrets and hurts, fears and dreams. I share their joy and their sadness, their triumphs and their defeats. And then I go home and can’t share it with anyone. Part of my contract with my clients is absolute confidentiality...
