What is coaching?
Coaching is a conversation with purpose which results in practical actions to help achieve your goals. It is dedicated time and space to openly discuss your life matters, set goals, clarify values and plan next steps with a trusted coach. During a one hour session we loosely follow a process to clarify what matters to you most and prioritise actions going forward. Accountability acts as a powerful motivator to keep you on track.

All this leaves bigger challenges than most for self-care, sleep, exercise and nutrition.
