Consultation Agreement, Informed Consent and Terms and Conditions
Below you will find all the details about the positivity personal development coaching and business mentoring sessions. Please feel free to ask questions and clarify about any aspects of these before making your purchase. Thank you for your interest in coaching with me! I look forward to connecting with you.
Nature of Personal Development Coaching and Business Mentoring Consultations
These personal development coaching and business mentoring sessions are dynamic, upbeat and engaging. They will encourage you to dive right into personal development by exploring yourself and different aspects of your life. We will work together to clarify issues, passions, goals, sabotaging thoughts and beliefs, hindering behaviours and what you truly want in life. We will then consider ways in which you can expand and enhance your life with positivity. These sessions will benefit people who have the ability to make improvements in their life.
The consultations are based on research that has been successful in helping people improve their lives. I use an Integrative Module with aspects of Positive Psychology, Cognitive Therapy, the Life Coaching GROW Model, Solution-Focused Therapy, Identity Matrix, Strengths Based, Goal setting Strategies and Person Centered Therapy. My focus in each session is to activate positivity in your daily routine to reach your ultimate potential and experience the exhilaration of flourishing. Positivity has been proven in nearly 300 scientific studies on over 275,000 people to enhance success in life and business.
The overall premise of these personal development sessions is that people are in a habitual pattern of thinking and doing. It’s assumed that when you are seeking coaching you are a state of floundering where your negativity ratio is higher than your positivity ratio. When this habitual pattern makes us feel stuck or frustrated we seek to change it. As a personal development coach I help you explore different aspects of your thinking and doing to bring on a deeper and more expansive understanding of self. You are the creator of your life and have the ability to inject positivity in areas needed to improve your life. It’s your choice what you want to change or create in your life.
Together we explore your values and what makes you passionate in life. Throughout this exploration different insights and opportunities will arise, we will follow them to see what needs to be changed or tossed. Together we agree upon an action plan that aligns with what you want in life – injecting positivity in ways that flows for you – so you are guaranteed to live a life you love! In these sessions we also focus on enhancing positivity because it has been proven to broaden minds, build resources, improve family relationships, increase positive social interactions, improve health and well-being and overall enrich lives.
Although the sessions may be very emotionally and psychologically intimate it is important for you to realise that the consultation relationship is strictly professional in nature.
