Life Coaching with soul!
What is the soul?
I use the word soul metaphorically. It’s a place that I imagine to be at the heart of who I am; it carries my life energy and creativity.
So is it a religious thing?
For me, no; although for some people it is connected to their belief in a deity and that’s fine. For me, it’s simply an imaginative way of locating the centre of my authentic being.
Why does the soul matter?
Whatever you call it, we have been handed something incredible by our evolutionary past. We are the only species (as far as we know) that is aware of itself and can ask deep questions about the meaning of life and how to live well. I find the metaphor of the soul to be really helpful in answering those questions for myself and many others have gained similar help in sharing that journey with me over the years.
What is soul coaching?
All coaching is essentially about drawing out what’s already there. Soulful coaching is about encouraging the client to meet and connect with their deepest and most authentic self and tap into that reservoir of creativity, resilience and confidence.
How does it work?
Typically, the soul coaching process is based around regular meetings (usually weekly or fortnightly). The client then undertakes a ‘Retreat in Life’ and commits to certain practices, such as mindfulness meditation and exercises that focus on themes such as gratitude or kindness. I then reflect with them at each meeting on how this has gone and what work is still needed.
How much does it cost?
The first meeting (1 hour) is free of charge. From there a package can be tailored to suit individual needs. Some clients may be looking for guidance to get them started or to help them through a particular event, others will be looking for a longer coaching relationship.
Here’s what ‘TH’ had to say:
”Sometimes life throws you a massive curve ball. So unexpected it knocks you off balance. It is easy to just stay knocked down but with expert guidance you can and you will pick yourself up and become a stronger you. David was the expert who gave me that hand, give him your time and the reward is enormous... a restored and improved you.”
