This could be your moment, the whisper that leads you to your date with destiny.... or it could be a great course which will give you the skills, knowledge and tools to become a mentor, coach, presenter and faciliator. Whichever it may be for you - welcome - it's great to see you here.

It is only when we have the courage to face the ocean and sail out of the harbour that we discover there is a whole new world waiting for us to explore it.

Here are some tips and hints for happiness I’ve learned:

  1. Take some time every day to sit and connect with yourself. How are you? I mean REALLY. Stop for a moment and take a breath. How ARE you? Still the whirling thoughts of how you think you are or how you think you should be and just relax for a moment. Be still and be here.

Studying with Global Coaching Academy involves a ten month journey where you will learn the art and science of coaching, mentoring, presenting, creating workshops, faciliation skills, effective reflection practices and much more, set on a foundation of the ancient wisdom of "Know Thyself".

Who we 'are' is how we show up in our lives - whether that be professionally, personally or with ourselves.

The energy that we ARE in truth is like an ice-berg - only 10% of it is above the watery line of our consciousness. Jung was one of the early proponents of bringing the unconscious to consciousness in order to be more aware, more awake and more conscious.

We know we are Souls journeying through eternity. We are so much more than the flesh and bones we walk around in. During our course, we support you and walk alongside you as you reflect on your inner landscape and how that affects your outer landscape. You are the co-creator of your destiny. By bringing more of yourself to consciousness, you unfold into more of who you truly are and become less limited by your unconscious patterning and programming.

If this sounds like something you enjoy doing - or would like to know more about how to do this - have a ponder on whether studying our Diploma of Mentoring, Coaching and Interpersonal Facilitation with us may be something for you.

Some people watch what happens, some people wonder what happened, and other people simply step up and make things happen.

This is your moment to step onto the bridge from where you've been towards where you're headed. You're ready... are you willing?

a lovely sharing from an amazing mentor in my life. ?

Mentoring and coaching is a relationship which helps you traverse from where you currently are to where you want to be.

It's a co-creation where your mentor or coach walks alongside you in a supportive role, acting as a sounding board, a space-holder, a mirror, a respectful challenger, a patient obsersver, a curious seeker and many more roles to help you find your way, your path and how YOU want to achieve your results.

A mentor has wisdom and life experience in the things you want to achieve, yet won't impose his or her way on you, rather will gently guide you to find your way and share any insights around potential pitfalls they have encountered.

A coach doesn't necessarily need to know or be an expert in the field of endeavour you're seeking to work within, but a good coach has a way of seeing things from a different perspective that you hadn't asked yourself about before, and so offers questions to get your creativity flowing without imposing opinions or judgements.

Taking a longer term approach creates longer-lasting results and supports you to keep going and remain committed when the initial enthusiasm has waned.

However, spontaneous coaching or mentoring sessions when you need them are a way to give you a short term boost when required.

However YOU want to work is up to you. It's your life - make the most of it!

Feeling comfortable enough in your own skin, in company or alone, is an art that isn’t taught well enough in our society.

Humans are hard-wired for change. It’s in our nature to ask questions, to seek, to wonder. We dream and imagine. In a world that is constantly changing, the old question, “Are we ‘there’ yet?” can never be definitively answered because ‘there’ keeps shifting. We must constantly shift and adapt, learn, unlearn and relearn if we want to keep up. We must constantly re-invent ourselves. To do this successfully, we must first know ourselves well. We must be self aware.

One of the toughest things you’ll face is letting go of one of your heroes.

Tis the season to be jolly and all that. For many this time of year is an exciting one, filled with hope and anticipation of gathering with family and friends, feasting and celebrating with loved ones and both giving and getting loads of presents that will delight and amuse everyone. For others it can be a time of great anxiety. Will there be enough to go around? Will there be fights and feuds on the big day? Will they like their presents? How will I pay the bills after this?

whitetopHamster wheels – we all have them on the inside. Something happened to us one day in some barely remembered past moment, and BAM! In that moment we made it mean something and set it in stone.  And since then, every time something that even remotely reminds us of that original incident we hop on our hamster wheel of expectation and recreate the same thing with the same outcome.

Now, this may be ok if it’s a useful thing, but often it’s not.  It becomes one of those “You always…” or “He/she never…” or “Why does this always happen to me?” out of control scenarios that we watch unfolding around us like helpless bystanders… ALL our buttons being madly pushed as we desperately try to find the “STOP” button.
But the good news is that it DOESN’T have to be like this!  We are amazingly creative creatures – we create our reality through our beliefs combining with the Universe’s desire to help us grow and evolve.

So… if you really WANT to go around recreating the old stuff that you’ve outgrown, that’s fine.  But I want to grow and get to the next level in this game of life.  And if you do, too, which I suspect you might, here are some things I’ve learned along the way.

My secret super-hero identity is the Harbinger of Change. I am the phoenix rising from the ashes of my secret pain and past. That which once paralysed me now fuels my Spirit as I rise and rise again.
