I know it sounds hyperbolic and a little clichéd but I’m putting it out there because I want everyone to know about this wonderful catalyst for growth and change.
I linked up with Jess through a very inspiring friend, Anna, who has recently become a life coach herself. As part of the course, students are required to source pro-bono clients (ie guinea pigs) to practise their new found skills on. Anna asked me if I would put my name in the pro-bono pool and I thought, ‘why not? Can’t hurt can it?’
To be honest though, I was pretty sceptical. Sure I was stuck in a rut and feeling totally disempowered at work but I’d managed to overcome depression in the past so I figured I didn’t really need a ‘life coach’, and besides… What exactly is a life coach!? It sounded a little bit too self-helpy. Nevertheless, I’m very open-minded and keen to try new things so I dutifully filled out the form and sent it in.
What happened next was amazing. I set up regular phone dates with Jess and over the course of six sessions she proceeded to completely change my perspective on life. Her gift for listening and interpreting is peerless. Jess helped me to take a series of actions that lifted me out of my rut and energised me in a way I’ve not felt for years. Her power lies in her ability to help you see your true, inner self and form new positive beliefs about your ability to be who you really want to be.
To be honest, Jess was the catalyst I’d been needing for years. It wasn’t so much Jess that changed my life but me. I took all the action. I shifted my perspective. I formed new beliefs. Jess just helped me to see that I could do it.
