Life Coaching

Life Coaching with Wendy Smith

Life coaching can help you in all aspects of your life. It can support your personal-development and self-improvement. Are you struggling with something? It could be dealing with a difficult relationship. Do you have problems standing up for yourself at work? Do you need a confidence boost to move out of your comfort zone and try something new? Or perhaps you need to find new direction and purpose in your life. Life coaching can help you manage grief and change. It can even help you deal with spiritual issues to find peace of mind.

As a life coach, I will approach things practically but sympathetically. Through our discussion, I will try to get a good idea of how you look at the world.  From this, I will be able to help you find the most effective route to your goal.

Some people feel intimidated by the idea of change and so need to take things slowly. So I might help you divide final goals into smaller bite-sized pieces. Others may get impatient and lose interest. So, I might suggest introducing stronger reminders and incentives to keep you on track. However you approach life, as your life coach, I will be able to tailor your sessions to fit your needs.

What happens during a life coaching session?

Life coaching sessions usually last about an hour over the phone. You might have about six to eight sessions. During sessions I will ask you a number of questions, such as what you want to get out of life, what areas you’re unhappy with and where you’d like to see yourself ending up. Although a life coach will work with you, it’s often up to you to challenge or reflect upon certain ideas to help you move forward with your life. You will never be forced to make any decisions you don’t feel comfortable with and all sessions will be confidential. This allows you to explore your thoughts and feelings privately.

Life coaching is often seen as a partnership between you and your life coach. I will gently encourage you to explore how to make positive changes in your life. I will offer support and feedback to help you to stay focused on your goals.

Wendy Smith is qualified and experienced life coach. She is well recommended having supported many other clients over a period of nearly ten years. Wendy is very easy to talk too and has a warm open approach. She really cares about you and your happiness.

Business Coaching

Business coaching with Wendy Smith

Business coaching with me will give you an external, objective and constructive perspective on your plans from an experienced business woman. Setting up a new business  or becoming a manager for the first time can be daunting. It helps to work with someone who has done it themselves as well advising clients.

For start-up businesses, I offer much needed support, guidance andexperience. Start-ups are notoriously risky – about half fail within the  first three years due to misjudged markets, overestimated forecasts, underestimated liabilities and so on – all easy mistakes to make for a first-timer. With an experienced business coach on-board, you can produce a business plan that is credible and has a very good chance of success. I can support you carrying your plans through.

If you are an established business, dealing with suppliers or managing a team of people can be incredibly difficult. How do you get everyone to work as well as they possibly can and together? You need to be confident – there’s no use worrying that no one likes you. If you appear to lack confidence and seem uncertain then you’re unlikely to gain the trust and respect of your team, your suppliers or your customers. I can help you meet the challenges of leadership.

Whether you are a business owner or a manager, working with a business coach will help to develop and hone your skills. It will greatly improve your chances of success.

Business Coaching with us includes

  • executive coaching (for senior managers)
  • start-up business coaching (for prospective entrepreneurs)
  • management coaching (team leaders and for business leaders wishing to expand their business.) 

Remember working with a coach really does increase your chances of success. Get in touch at the email address below – I offer a free half hour trial session by phone or Skype.
