My other blog discovers -
What is coaching? The question now is...
Who is coaching for? Is coaching for me?
If you already know - skip to the bottom and find out how to book yourself a free session with me.
If you are ready to take responsibility for you and your life - Coaching is for you.
Coaching is for people who have a dream and are ready and committed to take steps and action toward it. Coaching is an investment to improve your place in the world - whether that be your career or an element of your life.
Many great coaches have a specific type of person they work with, or industry. Some are career or business coaches. These serve specific times in our lives. Coaching is for everyone. But it is not really advertised to everyone in this way.
Show/Girl is a non judgemental coaching practice focused on increasing confidence in women and enhancing a positive mindset. Empowering women, and providing the space to choose their own future.
Show/Girl uses a holistic approach of coaching and life tools that guide ‘Future You’ to the world you are capable of achieving.
My most current client has been made redundant and is exploring content creation on OnlyFans. We are working together to build her confidence and create a business plan - with significant increases already made in her earnings.
Coaches for other women exist , but again focussed on corporate ladder climbers. More women than ever have started their own businesses and need support, are experts in their field but struggle with the thought of being on a Facebook live, or creating social media.
The confidence to ask for business escapes them and this is when their business can fail. A small investment can make a hell of a difference.
Some coaches work with NHS workers, including Doctors and Nurses. Our NHS staff have had a hell of a year which seems to be getting worse. The professional development, mindset, and general well being of these people will have been put on hold. So they are finding their own support including coaching.
Children, Teenagers and Young Adults are also a group where coaching can benefit. Children who have had a tough upbringing or lack confidence. Children of celebrities who need to find who they are. Teenagers who suffer with confidence because of acne, or a physical difference, or just being a teenager. Young adults with no clue about what they want to do next and are struggling with the idea of further education.
Coaching for Men has been available in a corporate setting. Some companies champion mentorship and coaching programmes, but they seem to be a luxury afforded to a select few.
Coaching is not advertised to men running their own businesses or targeted at millennials (male or female) launching their own twitch channel for example. But it can and should be used if you have a dream and want to take action - no matter how big or small your dream is.
Coaching for the Workplace - should not be just for executives. It is critical that people (especially now) who are working from home get good support.
Managers are now being asked to not only be the expert, but also check in on mental health, with no real training, some are not built that way and need support on how to be empathetic while also recognising unusual patterns of behaviour.
