What is Coaching?

Coaching is a simple yet powerful form of personal development.

It takes you from where you are now, to where you want to be, breaking down those challenges, fears and barriers of what could be holding you back and leaving you feeling stuck. It's also a supportive yet challenging process that gets you taking actions that you may have never thought of taking without the aid of coaching. Ultimately moving towards the desired life you want.

 

Stepping Stones Model

One of the key tools that we use at Hassled to Happy Coaching is the Stepping Stones model. A highly visual tool, this model helps you to visualise and map out, where you are, where you want to be and just how you are going to get there. Of course, the coaching process helps you pin those general ideas down into more specific issues, challenges, desires and goals that you can work on to move towards that final vision.

Coaching FAQs

Of course there are many tools and techniques that we use with our clients, to find out more about what coaching is have a look at the FAQs we have put together below.

How long will I work with Hassled to Happy Coaching?

We encourage a minimum of 3 months commitment, which includes 6 x 1-hour sessions on a fortnightly basis (actions depending).  Clients have shared with me they get instant break through, and change becomes embedded over the 3 months. Some clients integrate coaching as part of their life, and have top-up sessions as and when required.

However, every client is different and their challenges and circumstances vary. You may wish to work on a specific short term goal only, or you may wish to choose one of my 2 hours session targeting a specific issue. (See our Services & Packages page).

How will I get started?

Call Lisa at Hassled to Happy Coaching to design the package that is right for you, based on your challenges and results you want to achieve. Upon agreement, you will be sent by e-mail a welcome pack, containing a contract, code of ethics and a client kick start questionnaire. The questionnaire you will work on and return back to us by e-mail before your first session.  The contract will be sent back via post. Clients find these questions thought provoking, en-lighting and challenging, as they get you to look at your life in a way you may never have thought about before. You will start learning about yourself and your life situation instantly. The answers allow us to understand where you are now and where you want to be.

What happens during a Coaching session?

Coaching takes place either on the phone, my home, your home, or a quiet mutual place. Small group sessions take place in a designated location which may change depending on area. During the sessions you will explore how far you have come, decide what your challenge or goal is for this session; and through powerful questioning and coaching tools you will identify what's working well, what's not, what you want instead and how you're going to get it.

With your coach's help you will:

  • Understand your own negative mind chatter of whats holding you back.
  • Set realistic actions knowing what they will give you once achieved.
  • Agree to time frames of what, when and who may need to help you.
  • Your commitment will be encourage, through continued support and motivation.
  • Be empowered knowing you are the expert in your own life, you will not be told what to do

Why is coaching cost-effective?

As individuals we invest money every day on items such as:

  • Eating out / coffee / lunch
  • Hairdresser
  • Nails
  • Massage
  • Night out (sorry I forgot this one really is a luxury with kids!)
  • We even have those holidays abroad

These items all well deserved and I highly recommend them, however, the feelings are short lived and need to be repeated to achieve that 'feel-good-factor', yet the challenges of everyday life stay the same, and the things that annoy and cause us stress are still around. Coaching tackles the problem head on so that you manage your business and family life stress-free.  It is a life changing experience, one that you just can't afford to miss. Your investment is from as little as £55 per hour.

Whats my role as a client? How long before I see results?

All you need is a desire to change, an open mind and commitment to take action. Results are backed up by your actions which enable you to see instant results.

if you have any other questions, then feel free to give Lisa a call. It's really important that you are happy with your choice of coaching as well as your choice of coach!
