Coaching for Wellbeing
How can coaching support you?
When we are dealing with personal or professional challenges, or are juggling ongoing pressures, it is all too easy to become stressed out, worn down and stuck in our situation – feeling as if we are just surviving day-to-day, rather than living our lives to the full.
This not only affects our immediate happiness and well-being, but over time – if left unchecked – can also take its toll on our close relationships, our effectiveness at work or home, and can even lead to longer-term mental health issues – something that should be avoided wherever possible.
Therefore, in demanding times, coaching offers a supportive, tailored-to-you and evidence-backed approach that will help you get back on track again - enabling you to find calm, reclaim control, and move forward on your terms.
It also helps you find effective tools and strategies to boost your well-being and resilience - enabling you to cope more effectively when the going gets tough and leaving you better equipped to deal with whatever life throws at you, both now and in the future.
What will you gain from coaching?
Amongst many other things, coaching can help you:
Regain calm and clarity – giving you an often much-needed breathing space when things feel overwhelming.
Navigate personal or professional challenges or pressures effectively – boosting your coping skills and helping you reclaim control.
Build your psychological resilience – safeguarding your mental health and helping you discover what you’re made of in challenging times.
Enhance your well-being – recharging your batteries and helping you thrive, regardless of what’s going on.
Harness your own strengths and capabilities - increasing your belief in yourself and your ability to cope in any situation.
See yourself in new, more helpful ways – tackling negative, self-critical or ‘Imposter Syndrome’ thinking head-on and increasing your self-confidence.
Identify what’s important to you – so you know your values and priorities, and can use these to guide the way when you feel stuck or uncertain about where to go next.
Reconnect to who you are – something that can be easily misplaced when stressors or setbacks are wearing you down.
What can you expect from coaching?
Although it may seem daunting, coaching is simply a series of tailored-to-you, one-to-one conversations in which we work together on your level to help you successfully move through testing times.
To do this, we first start by untangling what’s currently going on in your life – so we can see your challenges more clearly and understand the best ways to approach them.
We then develop and implement a plan of action – using proven, evidence-based tools and strategies to help you negotiate demanding circumstances effectively and move forward on your terms.
Not sure whether coaching is right for you?
Forward-facing - instead of focussing on the past, coaching looks at where you are now, as well as where you'd like to be. This does not mean that past events won’t be considered – but only if they are affecting your well-being and resilience, and stopping you from achieving outcomes that are important to you.
Directed by you – you know yourself and your circumstances better than anyone. Therefore, coaching does not tell you what to do, prescribe advice or push you in any particular direction. Instead, it offers a safe, open and non-judgemental space for you to work through your challenges on your terms, and find powerful and practical strategies for tackling them that are right for you.
Not about 'fixing' you or your situation – instead coaching helps you to develop your own resilience and coping resources, and build the skills you need to ‘self-coach’ yourself effectively through both current and future setbacks, difficulties or pressures.
Not the same as counselling or therapy - whilst it can support your psychological wellbeing and help you to manage stressors in ways that serve you, it does not offer treatment for mental health or emotional disorders. Therefore, if you are experiencing severe or ongoing depression or anxiety or have recently experienced traumatic events, it is important that you initially seek support from your G.P. or one of the counselling professionals here at the Beacon Clinic.
