Life Purpose and Career Coaching
You’re caught in a swirl of indecision about what’s next for you. Other people see you as highly capable and think you have it all together. On your good days you also know just how capable and talented you are, but sometimes you forget that.
You realise that you really want to take the time to consider what you want in life and to feel into what could be possible for you. You have a sense that you have important work to do and you want some help with claiming that and taking action on it.
You’re not sure about what you really do want, but you know it involves more fulfilment and more fun. You want to have a sense that the work that you do is meaningful and that you are also living in alignment with your true purpose. You think and then overthink and don’t seem to be getting anywhere and you think of lots and lots of reasons why the things that you really want are not possible for you. You look for answers from other people and from the internet and that becomes part of the swirl of not knowing what’s next for you.
Maybe you’re caught in a swirl of change happening around you and you want to make sense of how you fit into your new life. Things are not the way they were before and you want some help stepping into your new identity.
You’re intelligent, kind, creative, organised and dedicated with a huge need to be doing your right work in the world.
You are calm and practical and other people rely on you. You’re a fun person to be around and in your heart you know you’re a brave soul.
Your current success is impressing others, but doesn’t feel meaningful to you and you want to head your life in a new direction right now. Great appraisals are not enough anymore.
You want work that lights you up, makes a big beautiful difference in the world and that makes you happy to get out of bed in the morning, even when it’s Monday.
You’ve had enough of jumping every hurdle that work presents, like a racehorse. You’re completely over putting your job first all the time and yourself last. You feel utterly ready to claim your right future and do the work to make it happen. You’ve never been more ready than you are now to begin to make the changes that you know in your heart need to be made.
I get it.
When I was working in finance I felt disconnected from what I really wanted. I felt overwhelmed with all there was to do. I felt out of place and that I was wearing a mask to fit in.
I had no idea how to unhook myself from the expectations of others. I found it hard to relax. I had no idea how co-workers seemed content in their jobs. I attached all of my value to my job and couldn’t really see a path forward to work I would love, as I was so focused on other’s needs.
I felt bitter that I could work so hard and feel unfulfilled. I hated that I didn’t feel free in my work and didn’t feel I was being truly me. I went to the gym after work to dull my feelings and ate a lot of pasta with pesto, as it was an easy after work choice. I made flapjack with lunch choices. I wasn’t caring for my body.
Now I feel so fulfilled and free in my work and that I am truly using my passions and gifts in the world in my work as a coach, writer and teacher. I am deeply rewarded by my work as I see my clients grow and change. I am constantly learning and growing and I am excited about my life and the future of my business.
In my work as a coach, I love to help people on this journey towards work they love and to truly know their purpose in life.
You CAN have work where you are not always wishing for the weekend. You can have work that uses your talents and brings your gifts to the world. You can learn to tap into your own needs, wishes and dreams and to use them as the compass to go forward in your life.
