Where and how is it done?

Life Coaching can be done face to face at the MindBody Therapy Centre in Forest Hill or over the phone from the comfort of your own surroundings at a time to suit you. Each session usually lasts about one hour, with the first session usually lasting one and a half hours. Most clients benefit from at least four to six sessions but some have less or more. They can be once a week; every other week or once a month according to your needs. All sessions should be paid in advance of session each time.

What do we talk about?

We can go through one area or all the areas of your life, such as social, spiritual, emotional, financial, career, relationships etc and see which areas need ‘topping up’ and re-adjusting. We will look at your goals,your values, your beliefs and discover what is really important to you and what you are currently spending your time on. Then you can decide where you want to go, what you want to change and how you want to go about it in order to bring out YOUR best. It will enhance you but also those around you if done from the heart and with well meaning for those you are responsible for.

Coaching Families / Mentoring Teens

Coaching is the method of guiding a person from where they are, to where they want to be. You’ve probably heard of coaching in sport, and you may have heard of coaching in business; family coaching follows the same basic concepts. During a session the coach will talk to members of a family to find out where the problems are and what changes can be made to reach a happy medium.

Family coaching sessions are designed to keep disputes as rational as possible. When we let our emotions get the better of us, arguments can easily turn into shouting matches. A coach will ensure any arguments that arise between family members during a family coaching session are kept as structured, fair and valid as possible – so that everybody has a chance to have their say.

The truth is: living with other people is difficult, even if those people happen to be the ones we care most about in the world. Managing a good family dynamic takes time, patience and practice. Keeping all family members happy is no easy task – especially when you all have to live under the same roof.

Happy, peaceful family-life can only really be achieved with the perfect combination of compromise, order, mutual respect and understanding.

Family coaching sessions are designed to provide families with the tools and techniques to resolve conflicts, reach compromises and hopefully transform a difficult living situation into a comfortable one.

So why would you want to try family coaching? Coaching offers a practical solution to often very personal problems. Conflict within the family home can be so much more damaging and distressing than conflict at work. When we choose to start a family, we usually do so out of love. Although those initial feelings can be stifled or forgotten over time by the trials and tribulations of life – they never truly go away, and work can be done to reclaim them.

 

Issues such as:

  • Relationship problems – whether marital or inlaws or parent/child
  • House rules issues
  • Teenage angst
  • Work/Play balance
