What is a Life Coach?
A life coach is a type of wellness professional who helps people make progress in their lives in order to attain greater fulfillment. Life coaches aid their clients in improving their relationships, careers, and day-to-day lives.
What makes Zen Monkey Life Coaching different than other Life coaches in the Durban area?
A few things really…
Coffee shop Coaching
Instead of meeting up in a stuffy office, let's show some social responsibility by supporting local and head on over to a locally owned coffee shop in Durban North. All the benefits of Life Coaching in a more relaxed atmosphere. And let's be fair, why should you pay for my office space? So have a cup on me... For more about Coffee Shop Coaching, click here.
Teens and Tweens Life Coaching
Many parents wish to help there Teenagers and Tweens but don’t really know what options they have available (other than therapy, which can in some cases be detrimental to self-confidence). The teenage years can be a frustrating time for both parents and teens. You want to give them happiness and confidence, but you just don’t seem to understand each other. Getting this phase right or wrong heavily influences your child’s future chances of happiness and success. This is where coaching comes in. It can help your teenager in many ways.
Coaching can help with stress, motivation, self-confidence, schoolwork, problem-solving abilities, body issues, relationships, listening and social skills, creativity, and many other adolescent issues that can potentially extend into adulthood.
During the coaching process, my complete attention and focus will be on you. The coaching process is designed to help you achieve your personal and professional goals with support and guidance. I will provide a forum for you to establish your goals. I will ask powerful and probing questions, offer different perspectives, while helping you achieve what you want most in your career and/or in life. Everything we discuss will be confidential. Remember, I will always be in your corner with your best interests and your agenda at heart.
What will I expect from you?
Make your coaching sessions a priority in your life. Whether only one session or several planned out sessions. We are a team accomplishing more together than either of us could do alone. For this to happen, you need to be prepared for every session. Our sessions are designed to get you from where you are today to where you want to be. Feedback is encouraged. Let me know how the process is working for you (I encourage email communication between sessions).
