You drown by not falling into the river but by staying submerged in it.” Paulo Coelho

I see life as a flowing river and very often when challenges come or fear kicks in, we can stay frozen to the river bank, watching life unfold from the sidelines. When we find our flow, through receiving support in attending to how we feel and understanding what our needs are and how we can meet them, we can start to feel brave enough to trust life to take us in its current. Here everything starts to feel a bit easier, conflict dies down and we become more able to stay calm, centred and at ease.

Good decisions always come from being in the flow of  your own life.

Through Life Development Coaching, you will develop new perspectives and make contact with your power in order to identify your own solutions and make more nurturing choices.  You will live your life with less judgement and more courage and ultimately find your own flow.

I don’t ‘do’ anything to you, we do it together -we are a team and I am on your side. I am warm and compassionate, yet I will hold you to account, which makes the difference between staying stuck and moving into newness. I shall actively support you to turn on your own light of leadership. Your beam is bright.

You will naturally find yourself becoming more assertive and clear with your wants and wishes. Whatever the issue, problems in relationships, feeling stuck at work, being put down and shut down by others, we shall find a solution together.
