I had been working
for large companies in the public and private sector for the last ten years and
felt the need for a career change. With three very different options in mind,
but not knowing which one to choose, I was confused and needed someone independent
to talk them through with, to give me clarity of thought.
I found Carol
through the Life Coach directory online and had an initial chat with her over
the phone to find out more about what was involved. It sounded exactly what I
was looking for.
At our meetings
Carol listened to me and challenged me by asking lots of questions, often they
were difficult questions I hadn’t considered before. She supported me to come
to my own decisions, never putting words into my mouth or trying to influence
my choices. We always agreed on a manageable list of actions at the end of each
session. I enjoyed this approach because it made me feel like I was taking
small steps towards my end goal and it kept me motivated. I always felt at ease
with Carol and able to trust that whatever we spoke about was confidential.
By the end of my
sessions I felt clear, confident and happy in my decision to leave my 9-5 job
and set up my own business. Meeting Carol really has been the catalyst to me
taking this step. I don’t think I would have had the courage to do it without
the benefit of the coaching sessions. I needed someone to give me a gentle push
in the right direction and occasionally some tough love too!
