As your Lifestyle Guru I can help you find that balance to help you cope with your busy schedule.
As a mum and business owner, I know what it is like to juggle all the balls in the air and hope none come crashing down. I was stuck in a job that I did not like, stuck in relationships that did not nourish me and felt life lacked meaning and purpose.
I changed all that when I was shown another way, when I learnt to believe in myself, walk my own path and do what served me. It was scary, it was demanding but I got there and I can honesty say it is the best thing I have ever done.
With the tools, techniques and processes I have learnt, I can help you discover what drives you and map out the best way to get you there.
In Sanskrit, guru means literally dispeller of darkness. Lifestyle gurus are a profession popularised by several celebrities, including Cherie Blair and Madonna in the 1990s and 2000s.
How Does this type of Lifestyle Coaching Work?
Life coaching is essentially asking meaningful questions that help unfold deeper layers in one’s life. Spiritual coaching takes it a step further, by asking questions that reveal the most important things to and for you.
A spiritual coach will help guide you, as you search out the beliefs that you hold most dear and the things that bring meaning into your life. The things that we enjoy the most and that define who we are frequently stay hidden beneath layers of survival techniques we learn going through life and automatically implement in our daily lives.
A lifestyle guru brings all these aspects together. They will not give you unsolicited advice. They will not diagnose or analyse problems or offer solutions as that is beyond the scope of coaching. Those dynamics are better suited for a trained therapist or counsellor.
The lifestyle guru will ask questions that help you find the answers within yourself. You are looking for your answers and your lifestyle guru is merely a guide and companion walking along that path of discovery with you. The guru’s purpose is to be a mirror, allowing you to see yourself.
The process of forming your life from the foundation of your dreams may feel uncomfortable as it requires you to take ownership of your life. The goal, and your reward for struggling through, is you get to create your life your way.
When you own your life, you give yourself the most significant gift you can give. It means you are creating the meaning of your life having gone through a process of unlearning all that others and your environmental conditions may have imposed on you.
One of the main reasons for the rising popularity of life coaching is the increasing amount of stress that people experience, as a result of work pressure, difficult bosses, lack of work-life balance and loss of motivation.
