Conscious Coaching

HEART-CENTRED BUSINESS COACHINGIMG_3290
If you’re a heart-centred freelancer, therapist or small business trying to build a life and business around your values and you’re looking for support in how to do it, you may have just landed in the right place!

Conscious Coaching is a one-to-one process honed from over a decade of working with social activists and business owners who are looking to do good in the world. This is a process that gets you really clear on who you are, what you do (and don’t do!) and how to best bring your work to the world in a way that reflects your values… and, crucially, pays the rent too!

Some areas we delve into are…
~ inhabiting your soul’s purpose in the world at this time
~ clarifying who you are what you do
~ what your offering is and how to ensure you get paid for it
~ who your best clients are and connecting with them gracefully + authentically
~ befriending and busting your money and business blocks (and probably some personal ones too)
~ getting systems in place so you are running your business and your business isn’t running you
~ claiming your fully authentic and unapologetic identity
~ developing your website and online presence
~ connecting with your clients through sharing yourself and your stories
~ making social media enjoyable
~ building sales funnels and client support
~ making and communicating decisions that are fully aligned with you
~ managing yourself and others for optimal productivity (Hint: it’s not about working harder/longer/fiercer)
~ filling your own glass first: the gifts of self care and personal mastery

This process is for you if you’ve been looking for support in building your life and work around your values, and not in spite of them. This process is for you if you’ve been trying to bring your work to the next level but keep hitting confusion or roadblocks. This is for if you want to turn your passion project into a business but aren’t sure where to start. Start here!

Drop me an email at lydia@consciousconsulting.ie and let’s set up a free introductory call.

COACHING for WOMEN
I coach women who are in transition or are preparing for change but can’t quite hear their inner wisdom yet and are wondering which way to go and how to go about it.

If you’re struggling with your life purpose, career, an intimate relationship or wider family dynamics… if you’re unsure if you have the clarity or strength to take some bold next steps… it’s ok. I’ve been there sister. And I’m still there  at times but now I have an arsenal of kick ass strategies and coping skills to ease the way. I’ve lived and learnt and I’ve developed some beautiful tools and insights that I’d love to share with you.

FYI: Your internal compass and your personal roadmap is totally in there even if sometimes you’re convinced that it isn’t!

So if you need support finding your answers, lining up your next steps and moving through the discomfort that inevitably comes with change, maybe I can help. Send me an email and let’s chat.

WHAT COACHING IS (and what it isn’t!)
Coaching with Lydia taps into your inner wisdom and brings it to the surface, to the place where you can hear it and crucially, where you can act on it. As coach and client, we work together from the point that you are completely whole to start with, it’s just that sometimes your magnificence gets a little dusty and your internal compass a little lost.

Coaching is a catalyst for change and while we may bounce around ideas, I will not advise you to take any particular course of action nor influence any of your decisions; and though it can be therapeutic in effect, it is not therapy or counselling.

HOW IT WORKS AND WHAT HAPPENS NEXT
Drop me a line to set up a free introductory call. On this introductory call, you can fill me on on where you’re at and what your needs are, I’ll share a bit about me and we can see if we’d like to work together. If so, we’ll set up our first session and I can give you some pieces to start looking at between then and when we start.

Our sessions are usually over Skype and sometimes we might meet in person, particularly if you’re local and we have something clinic or office related to focus on where I need to see your physical space.

Sessions are 75 minutes but I find it’s best if we both carve out 90 minutes in the diary, for technology set up and to allow transition into and out of our call. Sessions cost €120 and after our first full session, if you’re happy to proceed I ask that you commit to a minimum of 6 sessions.

If this feels like a fit, drop me a line at lydia@consciousconsulting.ie and I’ll get back to you right away.

“I’ve been fortunate enough to do some life and career coaching with this woman. If you’re into the holistic approach to following your life’s path and could do with someone to mirror and offer wisdom, she’s great!”

 

Mindfulness

Mindfulness is noticing what is going on within you and around you, moment by moment.

Don’t worry, it’s not about peacefulness and it’s certainly not about making your mind calm.

It’s just this great tool that helps build your resilience against stress and combat the challenges of everyday life in our busy, digitally loaded lifestyles.  Sure, being at ease with our dis-ease can bring a feeling of freedom but it’s useful to simply start with being less mindless!

MINDFULNESS IN SCHOOLS
We run talks and workshops teachers students in personal and leadership development, giving them skills to navigate the challenges of working with children and young people today. The topics we can cover include

~ Mindfulness
~ Public Speaking with presence and authenticity

~ Skilling up for the Future of the Working World

MINDFULNESS IN BUSINESS

Facilitation

“Our greatness lies not so much in being able to remake the world… as in being able to remake ourselves” Gandhi

As a facilitator, it’s my job to create a safe, engaging, fertile environment for your group so that the wisdom in the room can be unlocked. So what needs to be unlocked in your organisation and let’s unlock it!

Is it Leadership Development : Management Upleveling : Coaches Training : Communication Skills : Purpose : Conflict Resolution : Intention & Attention : The Power of Awareness : Emotional Intelligence ?

I rarely use power-point and can often be found with a flipchart on the floor and the group around in a circle, with markers in one hand co-creating the output and mugs of tea in the other.

If you would like to chat about facilitation for a meeting or group, send me an email at  lydia@consciousconsulting.ie And if you’d like to see some of my recent training, facilitation and creative consulting, you can do so here.
