Lead a Fulfilling Life with Holistic Coaching

Many of us don’t think twice about spending several hundred pounds on our homes but are reluctant to invest any money in ourselves believing we don’t need it or that we should be able to sort ourselves out. Maybe we think that whatever is troubling us is not a big deal and that it will ‘get better’ in time. We tend to neglect ourselves.

You may have read lots of self-help books and although interesting and promising a lot, they haven’t really helped to change you. Perhaps you’ve talked to your friends, family and partner who all give you advice, sometimes conflicting, yet you still don’t know what to do. It could be that all your usual ways of approaching things don’t seem to work any longer and you can’t see how to proceed.

Holistic coaching is an approach to coaching where everything about you and your world is included. It draws on wisdom from the East and West while staying current and incorporating recent findings relating to neuroscience, genetics and other disciplines.

With Holistic Coaching, we explore your individuality and the social context within which you are embedded. The former will include your thoughts, beliefs, emotions and intentions as well as everything that is happening to you physiologically. Your social context involves the language you speak (the words you choose and the way you express yourself), the culturally specific practices you engage in and the relationships and groups you are part of.
