What is Coaching and how can it help you in becoming healthy and confident?
If you are here, it is probably because you are feeling frustrated about your weight.
Maybe you are beginning to wonder if you will ever be able to change your size and shape, and feel like yourself again?
Perhaps you are wondering if there is a method that will help you have the vitality and confidence that you so desire and enable you to do the activities you used to do again.
You may have thought about prioritising yourself more, though when you try to, it feels odd and you end up feeling guilty.
So what do you do?
If this is something you are struggling with, you are not alone as this is very common amongst my clients.
When I started Coaching with Silvia I was confused unable to separate what I thought I had to do for others as to what I wanted to do for me. Throughout our time together Silvia supported me to think about what I wanted to change and how to break the change down into achievable steps. By helping me to understand that I had choices and that I was in control of those choices I was able to start making the changes to make me feel happier. It was easy to talk to her and the techniques Silvia shared with me on how to STOP the self-doubt thoughts were really useful and I continue to use them every day.
From the work I do with my clients, I have observed time and time again that there is more to an unhealthy lifestyle than having no time or motivation. Very often there is an emotional issue behind why you are not focussing on your health the way you’d want to: maybe you’ve stopped believing in yourself, maybe something is holding you back or maybe you are not important enough?
Coaching helps you to understand your thoughts, your actions and the relationship between them. It encourages you to see the issue from a different angle. It helps you to start to get to know yourself and see why you make certain choices. You will start to see how change is possible, and if you are ready to make the commitment, your actions will lead to desired results.
Maybe you have tried to make changes on your own on multiple occasions, but you don’t seem to get anywhere?
“Discovering why I used to eat the way I did and why it seemed so impossible for me to stick to right decisions have certainly put me on a very positive path which has started, and I believe will continue to lead me to the healthy me I have always dreamt of. If you are thinking of trying the 10th time to do it by yourself, stop setting yourself up to fail, and ask for help, like I did.”
Another common reason people struggle to get results is that their exercise and eating habits are out of balance. They may exercise regularly, however they are eating too much or eating the wrong type of food. They may even find that they are addicted to some types of food.
You are probably guessing that the mind needs to be challenged, not just the body.
My clients find that having time and space to discuss and explore what is causing such habits, and how to change and manage them, can have the most positive effect on their health and confidence.
They often find they can apply the same principles to other areas of their life.
I’ve applied the principles of Personal Coaching to other aspects of my life too.
