Life Coaching Case Studies

Working at home

Rebecca's Experience

'Single mother looking to change career and build confidence and emotional resilience'. Rebecca contacted Nichola @mindfullifecoachuk initially seeking support in making a major career move after finding herself stuck in a job she had accidentally fallen into. She received a FREE CONSULTATION to explore her goals and priorities, and initially signed up to a single Life Coaching session to complete a comprehensive Life Evaluation & Plan. This exercise highlighted the various changes Rebecca wanted to make to increase her overall life satisfaction and clarify just how coaching would help her achieve it. For a total of 16 weeks we worked week by week to catapult Rebecca forwards in her priority life areas of: home, career, finances, relationships, confidence, and self-love. We used guided meditations, affirmations, NLP, Timeline Therapy and Emotional Freedom Techniques to fast-track her learning, healing and growth. Home practice was assigned to accelerate transformation and in 16 weeks Rebecca was able to achieve the following: •Decluttered her home (a major achievement for a self-confessed hoarder) and started redecorating to make her living environment more organised and tranquil. •Gained clarity on her change of career and started a new job while developing her new business. •Evaluated her finances, changed her spending habits, sold unwanted items, took on a lodger, started temping and reduced debts to provide more financial freedom. •Helped her son develop his independent living skills, secure his own employment and more confidently provided him emotional support in his typically turbulent journey towards adulthood. •Learned about healthy boundaries, effective communication, and conflict management which she was able to apply in her relationships with family and work colleagues. •Learned, healed and let go of emotional pain and limited beliefs created through past relationships •Developed a super positive self-image and confidence, and started prioritising self-care and happiness, having adopted new habits, coping mechanisms, boosting her resilience, reconnecting with herself and remembering how awesome she is and has always been. Rebecca’s commitment to the coaching process was unshakable, both during and between session when completing the home practice. At the end of 16 weeks Rebecca reported a significant improvement in all major life areas and overall Life Satisfaction in her final coaching session. In her feedback she reported that she had learnt to recognise and manage her emotions more effectively, she was now able to stand back and consciously choose how to respond to any given situation; she is connecting better with people, is far less self-critical and finally proud of herself, her achievements, and personal qualities. As with all Life Coaching clients, Rebecca will be offered a FREE 3/6/12 MONTH REVIEW to stay in touch and ensure progress continues.

John's Experience

'Business owner looking to heal wounds from the past and attract a healthy new relationship'. John contacted @mindfullifecoachuk following a difficult long-term relationship and break up 6 months prior. He described the relationship as toxic and traumatic. He was struggling with ruminating thoughts and feelings, replaying painful memories and imagining hurtful scenarios over and over. This was affecting his mental health and ability to appreciate the good things in life including his children. He had built emotional walls to protect himself, but this was also stopping him meeting someone new and moving on, which at his core he deeply wanted. John requested a FREE CONSULTATION once he had HAD ENOUGH of getting in his own way and was FINALLY READY TO LET GO of the hurt from the past and MOVE ON. He signed up to the 6 week Letting Go of Past Relationships & Attracting Your Soulmate coaching programme, delivered online on a one-to-one basis by Nichola. Week by week John was taken through a series of life coaching exercises, using transformational techniques including NLP and Timeline Therapy. Home practice was assigned between sessions to accelerate and cement learning and change. And in 6 weeks the programme was able to help John: •Develop his self-awareness, clarify what he really wanted, why he was attracting certain partners and repeating the same old patterns and how to break the cycle •Recognise learning from past relationship experiences and LET GO of the emotional hurt linked them to create emotional space for a different experience •Started to develop his confidence and self-worth by connecting with his inner child, forgiving himself for past mistakes and reframing qualities he thought were limitations as actual strengths. •Raise his energetic vibration to match the kind of partner and relationship he actually wanted to bring into his life. John committed himself fully to the life coaching process. He actively engaged and completed all 6 sessions and most of the home practice assigned, and later signed up for an additional 4 one to one coaching to focus on confidence-building. 3 months on, John is now dating regularly and mindfully, being open and honest in his communication, and maintaining his standards and boundaries. He reports feeling more content with single life as he recognises just how much he already has to be grateful for in terms of his children, his work; he continues to socialise, travel and fills his time with things and people he loves and enjoys. He has learnt to manage his thoughts and emotions and prevent them spiralling, and he is enjoying the fruits of his labour more fully and mindfully now that he is using the tools and techniques he has learnt through the programme. One of the comments John made at the end of the 6 weeks was that Nichola should have been more forthright from the start about committing to home practice; and being clear from the start that this programme has the power to transforms lives, because it has had such a positive impact on his. After a coaching break John is now accessing monthly life coaching sessions to help him stay on track with his longer term relationship goals.

Katies' Experience

‘Wife, mother and budding entrepreneur looking to develop mindfulness practice and promote healthy relationships’ Katie contacted @mindfullifecoachuk at a time when she was going through family difficulties and struggling to manage her emotions following post-natal depression. She was provided a FREE CONSULTATION to explore her goals and clarify how Transformational Life Coaching could help her, and she signed up for a 3 month programme to address the various issues she wanted support with. We completed a comprehensive Life Evaluation & Plan to identify what Katie specifically wanted to change and what steps would be needed to move her closer to achieving her longer-term goals. Using a range of techniques including Mindfulness and Meditation, NLP, EFT, Timeline Therapy and Parts Work we were able to work on her priority life areas: relationships, career and health habits. By the end of the 12 sessions C had achieved the following: •A significant reduction in disagreements at home and better communication with partner •Feeling more confident as a parent and managing ‘mum-guilt’ •Bringing closure to long-standing family issues which were causing distress •Significantly improved emotional containment and mindful behaviour •Developed healthy habits including regular exercise and taking vitamins resulting in losing weight and improved sleep •Taking steps to negotiate a pay rise and promotion whilst developing a side-business •Prioritizing happiness by arranging nights out with friends and trips away Despite juggling work, motherhood, relationships and her various responsibilities, Katie remained committed to the coaching process from start to finish, completing home practice as and when she could. In her feedback at the end of the 12 weeks Katie reported experiencing ‘calm in her mind even when there is a lot going on’, utilising meditation and journalling and time spent in nature as tools for managing her thoughts and emotions and incorporating more mindfulness into her life. She reported wanting to understand her thinking better and said coaching helped change her perspective about her own sanity for the better. Katie accessed her FREE 3 MONTH COACHING REVIEW, then one again at 6 months and one at 12 months, when she decided to resume monthly Transformational Life Coaching sessions to help stay on track with the various projects and priorities she was juggling. These 1hr sessions are more free-flowing, though structured sessions are available as and when needed to address specific issues like developing confidence.
