When ‘life happens’ we can resort to retail therapy, giving up, or a 10am martini. But shoving it down, sideways or to someone else doesn’t help!
Setting Yourself Up for Coaching
Step #1 - Work Out If Coaching Can Help YOU
Step #2 - Learn What Coaching is Really
Step #3 - Decide If I'm the Right Coach for You
Step #4 - Pick up the Phone or Email
Step #5 - Decide on the Coaching Programme
If any of the above is familiar...
...breathe, and be kind to yourself. You're not alone.
Plus, you've done the hard bit, by taking the first step towards transformation. You've got this!
Coaching may be a game-changing - life changing - option for you!
Time to learn more about what coaching really is...
STEP # 2 - What is Coaching? Really?
Coaching helps you gain
A - Awareness of why you think and feel the way you do
B - Belief in yourself that you can do something about it
C - Clarity about what needs your attention and energy
D - Direction and purpose for making changes and impact
You will have the answers inside you (trust me!). Perhaps they cannot be revealed at the moment, blocked by self limiting beliefs, thoughts and a habit of running on autopilot.
We use a coach approach to help you unravel the mystery of you, to help you discover your own unique-ness. We unpack, reveal and illuminate beliefs, patterns, thoughts and habitual behaviours not serving you. We'll help guide you to draw an extraordinary map of where you want to go, learn a new way to travel, bridge the gap between your real life and your ideal life and help you discover who your 'best possible self' really is.
You'll gain awareness of what a 'mindfully extraordinary life' looks and feels like for you. It starts with an inside out approach: a new appreciation of how much choice you really do have about your experiences in the world PLUS a vision of what life would look and feel like if you were deliberate about living it. We'll guide you as you create a toolbox of strategies, and practice using those strategies so you start living life on purpose!
As a coach I'm also fiercely passionate about holding you accountable - coaching is a 'done with you' not 'done for you' approach! Between sessions you'll have full email support, weekly check-ins to keep you on track and, where necessary, you'll be provided with a handbook, workbook and a journal so you'll always have resources to refer back to.
Plus, naturally, we make this transformational journey fun! In a comfortable, safe and confidential environment.
Sessions can be face to face in Tamahere Hamilton or online (zoom). Sessions are normally 60mins each and to gain momentum and lasting change, preferably a fortnight apart. Any shorter and you may lose the opportunity to 'practice and embed'; any longer and you may lose momentum, or life busy-ness may just get in the way!
Eight sessions for example may just be four very quick months of your life to invest in YOU!
Step #3 - What Others Say About Me
"For the past 6 months I have had the privilege of being coached by Rhonda. As a transformational coach Rhonda does not make decisions for me but instead she enables me to look at my life through a different lens.
Rhonda allows me to tell my story and then by weaving in curious and challenging questions we get to the real issue. What I really like is that at times she challenges me, and this encourages me to alter my mindset and to approach situations from a deeper place. Sometimes the shift in my mindset is subtle and others it is quite monumental.
Rhonda's coaching has enabled me to change my attitude about myself and my business. I now have the courage to make and even embrace change and to move forward by making choices that serve me well.
I truly look forward to our sessions, her natural humour, authenticity and real connection allows me to be vulnerable. Thank you Rhonda" - Hazel, coach and business owner, Wellington
"I completed eight mindfulness / communication coaching and mentoring sessions with Rhonda. I found it incredibly beneficial from a personal and professional perspective. It helped me understand my own and other’s feelings / emotions, while developing a toolbox to manage the same. Rhonda was very personable and flexible to adjust the content to meet my needs. I highly recommend" - Mark, banker, Waikato
STEP #4 - Having a FREE Chat with Me
Regardless of the coaching package you choose, our first meet-up is no obligation and FREE. In this 30 minutes we discuss your needs, your intentions, your definition of success. You may be looking for a goal-mastering option. Or for some delicious, gentle pathways and strategies to enhance your perception and response to your life. Or wanting to crush the blockages, challenges and beliefs that have stood in your way in the past, transform and liberate yourself to be your best possible self, living the live you'd never want to trade! So exciting! We can totally cater for this.
In this first connection we work together to identify how far we're going to go with the 'unravelling' of layers and mystery of you to bridge the gap between your intentions and your reality. AND it's important you feel comfortable with your coach and the investment you are making. Before you make it. That's why the first consultation is FREE.
If, after your first free meeting, you wish to continue with Our Minds Matter, you'll choose one of the coaching options, see below. What you choose will depend very much on what you are wanting to achieve, and that's what we can work out together in our freebie chat!
