I've done it! I've actually finally done it.
After years of dabbling and studying in the self-help world, I finally went out and got my Life Coach Certification. It almost feels surreal to accomplish something that's been on the "to-do" list for a number of years. It's as if some sort of weight has been lifted off my shoulders. Now when someone asks me if I'm Certified I can respond with an enthusiastic "YES!"
I've always known I wanted to help people and make a positive impact in the world. How I was going to do that wasn't always so clear to me. When I was in my early twenties I became aware of Life Coaches and what it was they did to help people upgrade their lives in a positive way. Instantly I felt drawn to this field of self-help work like there was a switch in my mind that finally clicked on when I discovered it. I knew I had to find out more so I dove headfirst into every self-help book that was out there. From hugely famous names like Tony Robbins and Oprah all the way down to Gabrielle Bernstein, Danielle LaPorte and Lewis Howes, I was submerged in it. I watched every YouTube video, read every book, spoke to every person I knew who was even close to being in that world about how I could become certified for myself. Along with my journey of self-discovery I got to a point where others started to approach me for help, of course, I agreed, these were my friends after all but I always felt awkward and less than confident doing so. Sure I had years of study and experience under my belt but without a real "certification" in my hand, I always just felt like I was being a fraud.
It's now been almost 10 years since I started this journey and only now have I finally felt the calling to become fully certified and offer my services to the general public. It's with this Independent Life Coaching Certification from The Strategic Life Coaching Academy in the U.K. that I now have the confidence to stand up and say "yes, I AM certified and yes, I CAN help you!" Armed with the tools, knowledge and confidence I gained from my extensive training course I now have a fantastic program to offer my clients. I'm both exhilarated and terrified of this new journey I'm embarking on but I have confidence that as long as I keep taking one step after the other that eventually everything will fall into place and work itself out. I've worked very hard to release the attachment I had to perfectionism and instead I've embraced the flow of the unknown. I know deep down in my soul that part of my path in this life is to help others create a more enjoyable life experience for themselves.
As you're reading this you can see that I've already fully launched my website and business for those who are interested and feel called to take that next step. If you're feeling that call yourself I suggest you take a wander over to my Coaching page and see what it's all about, maybe you'll feel the click and reach out for a Discovery Session or maybe you know someone who it might be perfect for. Or maybe you just enjoy coming here to read my exciting blog posts about Travel, Spirituality and living a healthy Lifestyle. Whatever it may be I want to take this moment to thank you for your support. It really means a lot to me and I hope to see a lot more of you in the future!
