MY STORY - THE ACCOUNTANT WHO TRANSFORMED INTO A COACH ……
Following a 30 year accounting career I was made redundant. This event while incredibly stressful at the time proved to be a gift because; it provided me with the time and space to take a good look at my life. I realised that I wanted to do something different. Something creative. And no, I wasn’t contemplating becoming a creative accountant!
It took me a couple of years to rekindle my latent creativity and to transform myself, and my life. Along the way I wrote fiction, learnt to play an instrument, began learning improvisation for the stage. And most importantly I studied hard and developed the skills and the experience necessary to help people transform their lives too.
Helping people to change for the better gets me bouncing out of bed every morning because, like George Eliot, I know, “It is never too late to be what you might have been.”
I’ve found this to be particularly true when you have someone to help you create, and live, the life you really want.
If you’ve visited my Homepage you’ll notice a couple of photos of lighthouses. During my transformation I would often stand on the deck outside my house and stare out across the water watching ships pass safely beneath the lighthouse across the bay. I realised that like any ship on the ocean, we all face challenges, problems and adversity in our lives. And at those times, we could all do with some help and guidance just like that provided to ships by a lighthouse.
Now as a professional life coach I help and guide people to develop the skills they need to navigate safely and comfortably through the rough seas and storms of life and take control of their lives and futures.
If you want to read more about my story here is an article that appeared in one of the two national newspapers here in New Zealand, in October 2015, under the banner "Life coach draws on own story". Download here.
A more recent article about me appeared in the October 2016 edition of Acuity - the magazine published by the Chartered Accountants Australia and NZ. You can read the article entitled "Life Audit" here.
I believe that we all have unlimited potential.
The secret is in finding the right key to unlock it. I help people find the key, and to overcome the roadblocks and obstacles that stand in the way of success, well-being and happiness.
Many people remain stuck or unsure of how to change for the better. Others are held back by fear.
• failure or success
• not being good enough
• being judged.
• change or doing things differently.
Fear keeps us from realising our full potential. As a result many people endure dissatisfying lives.
I enjoy delivering brief, solution focused coaching, that empowers and equips people with the life skills they need to create permanent and lasting change for the better. I’m 100% committed to ensuring that everyone I work with receives the very best service, tailored to their specific needs, I can offer and, derives real value from the experience.
So is it time to begin to explore, dream and discover what's possible?
Once you decide what you truly want and commit 100% to achieving your objectives, you can successfully create and live the life you really want – both personally and professionally.
Remember - “It is never too late to be what you might have been.”
