For around £12,
from your own home, in a fun group. What's not to like?
These online seminars
are a great way to receive many of the benefits of personal life
coaching, as well as some other benefits - and it's much cheaper.
It's also a fantastic way to lift yourself instantly
into a new world of people like you, committed to their dreams and
Each week, a few people meet for an hour or so. We each work
on a personal project - which might be virtually anything you want
in your life. I'll group people with compatible projects where possible.
We share our goals and what we're doing towards reaching them.
We're better together
We use the Life Coaching process in the group setting
to focus and refine goals, to maintain focus, build energy and self-esteem,
and to encourage progress.
Sessions give an opportunity for each member to
update us on progress; to tell us what's good, what needs work,
and how they feel about it. Other members offer practical and emotional
support and guidance.
I may present on an insight, or a life skill, or
lead discussions - it depends on where we are, and where
we want to go. We learn from each other, and we grow with each other.
We also have a great time! It's a relaxed and friendly atmosphere.
It's a different experience, and there are pros and cons.
Some coaching topics may not be things you want to share with others,
and you won't get as much personal focus from me. But you do get the benefits
of being in a team, and you gain a valuable new perspective as you look
into the lives of others and see their struggles and how they respond
to, and overcome them. This outside/inside perspective alone is fantastically
valuable in un-seating pessimism and negativity. Additional, personal
coaching may be a supporting option you'd like to pursue outside the club
Circles will run for four weeks. The overall thrust of
the program is to progress all circle members along this path:
Assessing your life as you live it today
Choosing primary improvement opportunities
Defining goals for those opportunities
Finding strategies to accomplish those goals
Implementing those strategies
Dealing with the inevitable pitfalls and emotional issues arising
Maintaining focus and drive
Before each circle meeting, I'll send you some study
notes, and you'll complete the homework you chose last time. During the
circle, we'll share experiences and resolve issues. You'll also decide
what you're going to aim for next time. The sessions will be friendly,
fun and relaxed. this is NOT a back to school exercise; if you
mess up massively, no-one is going to tell you off. You'll be among positive
friends who are there with sympathy and creative options for you to consider.
Circle sessions run for about an hour, will include up to
ten circle members. Price depends on the number in the group, but will be in the region of £12 a session.
Frequently Asked Questions
What kinds of issues can I work on? Almost anything
you'd feel comfortable talking about in the group. From low self esteem,

that's to do with making your life happier. The exceptions are if you

first name. If we video conference, and you choose to show your face,
they'll also know what you look like. Anything else is up to you.

No penalties. You pay for each session before it happens, and that is

little support to bring you back into line, or you might want to buy

I'll always be there to step in and help if I'm needed.
