Life Coaching

Life coaching is helpful if:

  • You are wanting to make a change in your life but you are putting it off
  • You have lots of ideas of what you want to do next but are not sure where to start
  • Are wanting to start a business or progress your current one but feel in need of some help
  • You are feeling unhappy, stuck, fearful and are not sure how to get out of this rut
  • Your self confidence and esteem is low and you need some help to feel like you again

These are just a few ways in which life coaching can help. It’s like having a manager but for your personal life, someone to support you, care about your goals and hold you to account for what you say you are going to do.

It’s future focused, it is not counselling where you might talk a lot about the past. In the sessions we will be focused on what you need and want to create. We will look at what you need to do to make that happen and explore what might be getting in your way. These might be things like:

  • Fears
  • Other peoples opinions
  • Self doubt and confidence
  • Behaviour patterns and beliefs
  • A feeling of lack, from money to not feeling good enough

Being a Yoga teacher as well Louise will weave in holistic practices that will support you as well as practical exercises.

Louise also loves to help new teachers in setting up their new Yoga business. She got to where she has from coaching, it was the first healing modality she ever came across before Yoga!

Life coaching is most effective over a series of sessions, Louise offers packages of 6 or 12 which can be spread out every 2-4 weeks. If you have any questions or are ready to commit to making a changes please contact Louise at louise@createyourself.co.uk

Trust Yourself

peacefulmind10 years ago when I was entering the personal development world I explored what the concept of self confidence really meant. It was something I felt passionate about helping others grow within themselves, and still do. I came up with the conclusion it was the trust that you could deal with anything life throws you what ever the outcome.

This is something I have developed in my self through the ups and downs in my life and I’ve helped others strengthen within themselves through life coaching. Yoga helps with this too.

When we practice yoga it’s vital to listen to your body and trust what you hear. Trust yourself enough to slow down when your body feels tired. To do an alternative variation to a pose in a class when your body is in pain. To trust that one day you will be able to do a headstand/ arm balance (if you want to!) even if it feels like a long way off, patience and practice will prevail. Trust you have the strength within you. To trust that right now you are perfect whole and complete anyway.

Life can pull us in all directions, deep down we want one thing but our fearful mind or people close to us may try to put us off. Yoga helps us to centre, to go within, to connect with our inner stillness, our heart and to listen to what is really true for us. Even if it is a bit scary. Life doesn’t change if we stay in our comfort zone, we don’t grow if we stay put.

Trust yourself enough to put one baby step forward towards your dream. Trust yourself enough to know that it’s all part of the process of life and how ever it turns out it’s exactly as it’s meant to be. No matter how difficult, there’s always lessons to be learned.

Trust yourself enough to listen (and act on) to that nagging small voice when a situation or person doesn’t feel right. Trust yourself enough when something lights you up to just go for it.

Yoga has helped me to deepen and trust my intuition. Connecting to my body, paying attention to the different sensations it feels helps me to tell when something feels right or not. There’s been times in the past where for example in relationships I have had a flash insight that it’s not right, something’s wrong but I’ve gone ahead anyway not wanting to believe that to be true. Turns out it always was! Now when I feel a twinge in my body or a inner knowing about something, or someone, I trust it.

Close your eyes, breathe slowly and deeply and repeat an affirmation to yourself a few times. Something along the lines of….

“What ever happens I will be OK”

“What ever happens I can deal with it”

“I trust the process of life all I need is always taken care of”

“I listen to my inner voice and follow my heart”

“I trust myself”

If you feel drawn to having a yoga 1-1 with me I have an offer on at the moment for new clients. 2 sessions for £65, instead of £80. If you’d like to explore life coaching I am very happy to have a complimentary session with you to find out if it’s something you’d like to pursue.

Namaste
