Coaching, what is it? That’s certainly the question I was asking almost a decade ago whilst searching for my purpose in life. I always knew that I wanted to help others, but didn’t know what that would look like, so I happily bumbled along in life until the point of questioning myself and life. At the time my answer was to run away and go travelling. Running away never answers questions – as I discovered later!
I stumbled upon a book by Tony Robbins called Awaken The Giant Within, this was a turning point in my life, I started to connect with myself & a deeper level not quite understanding what was happening and took courage to seek out help in the form of counselling, it was within the first 30 minutes of my first and only counselling session that the councilor suggested I seek coaching rather than counselling, at the time I found myself asking ‘what’s the difference?”
