Three Surprising Things I Learnt from Being a Coach

Three Surprising Things I Learnt from Being a Coach

Training as a coach in my 50s felt like coming home. Coaching aligned with my life purpose and continues to amaze and delight me daily.

Five Reasons to Become a Certified + Credentialed Coach

Following the launch of the Radiant Coaches: Live Sessions podcast where I interview a certified coach and receive a live coaching session, I have been reflecting on my own decision to become a certified coach. The coaching industry is not regulated in the way that many of us coaches would like. Anyone can launch a fancy website […]

Coaching with Self-Compassion


We are surrounded by (what feels like) interchangeable terminology relating to Self. Self-love, Self-care, Self-compassion. And what about self-esteem, self-confidence, self-worth.

Coaching Exercises

Coaching Exercises

Pure coaching involves questioning using your intuition, enabling your client to gain clarity on where they’re at, where they want to go, and how they can get there. Although running exercises with your clients arguably isn’t coaching, we are all “multipassionistas” with a range of wonderous skills under our belts. And you get to choose what to bring into your coaching business, so your clients can follow their true paths.
