A Space to talk about… Self-Coaching

An introduction to how we can learn to be our own life coach by challenging our 'inner critic' and developing an encouraging and affirming 'inner coach'.

Coaches work in many different fields. Most of us have heard of sports coaches. Other examples include voice coaches who work with actors or singing coaches who help pop stars. Any successful celebrity can confirm that being coached makes all the difference. A coach is supportive and validating but also encourages self-discipline, motivation and trying one’s best.  Poor performance isn’t criticised by the coach, nor is it glossed over. Instead, it is talked through and learned from. To benefit from any kind of coaching, we must be prepared to accept our mistakes, face up to our failures and acknowledge misjudgments or times when our feelings got the better of us.
