is life coaching for you?Do you:
  • have hopes and dreams that you’d like to fulfil?
  • want to move forward – with your career and personal life?
  • find that the daily demands of life and work get in the way?
  • feel your motivation dip at times?
  • want support towards achieving your goals?

What is coaching?

Many people have good ideas, but not everyone makes them happen. Coaching offers a dynamic to enable you to identify what you want in life and work, clearly define your goals an translate your goals and dreams into action and become.  After all, 
"You cannot plough a field by turning it over in your mind" (Anon)
Perhaps you have a vague idea that you want more of a work-life balance, would like a different job or to feel more organised? These are broad topics not goals.
"In the absence of clearly defined goals, we become strangely loyal to performing daily acts of trivia" (Author Unknown)

Life coaching will enable to you to bridge the gap between the ideas and where you want to be & support you to take bite-sized steps to reach great goals. You will feel encouraged not only to make resolutions but to bring about positive change both personally & professionally.

Lucy Seifert’s unique blend of coaching and training

Coaching is also the art of improving performance and, as a communication trainer with 27 years’ experience, I also offer clients 1-2-1 personalised training & the opportunity to develop skills that relate to their goals, such as assertiveness trainingconfidence coachingCV & interview skillspublic speaking and presenting, and time and stress management

achieving goals togetherWorking together to identify and achieve what you wish for
We work together in partnership in a climate of confidentiality, honesty, trust and support. You may bring one pressing issue, such as a relationship difficulty at home or at work, or a presentation you’ve been asked to make, or you may want to look more broadly and longer term at your personal and professional goals and well-being. 

achieving your goalI believe the client is the expert in their life & work, and is creative and resourceful.

Coaching will enable you to identify & define their goals, embark on a journey of self-discovery, generate ideas and solutions, access the skills that you wish for, make decisions and take action.

Life Coaching using the GROW Model

A life coach may work intuitively or with a structured approach or combine the two. I like to combine the two and my preferred model of Coaching is GROW or TGROW and I think it helpful for the client to understand the process of the model which in turn gives them greater ownership in the coaching session.

What does TGROW stand for?

  • T is for topic, the broad issue the client brings, 
  • G is for goal, the specific matter the client wants to work on today; 
  • R is for Reality Check such as where is the client now, what have they done so far, what are their resources, what is stopping them?; 
  • O is for Options, an explosion of ideas & at this stage quantity rather than quality is important; finally 
  • W is for Ways Forward, and the creation of an Action Plan that feels both encouraging and manageable for the client.

Life Coaching Tools

Life Coaches use many coaching tools to enable the client to talk, discuss, see their situations from different perspectives, learn & develop, problem solve, make decisions and attain their goals and dreams. I like to use a mix of popular tools such as the Wheel of Life, the GAP Analysis and SMART goals with my own practical & creative exercises to encourage self-discovery, reflection and creativity, using discussion, questioning, feedback and continual encouragement to move the client forward towards their goals.

Do you want to be a Life Coach?

Many people ask me about becoming a Life Coach. I've written several books which offer guidelines and activities for coaches and trainers. Subjects include assertiveness, confidence and communication.

I offer single coaching sessions face to face or on the phone dedicated to helping people decide whether coaching could be for them. As a client, you receive bespoke preparation and coaching with full confidentiality. To arrange this, please contact me to arrange your appointment.
