The Finding Fabulous Coaching Model
Face the present
For many mums the first step will be to acknowledge where you are right now and just how hard being a mum can be. I will encourage you to really feel the emotions that are coming up and not let them fester. This is particularly important when it comes to feeling judged, guilty or ashamed. Physical appearance and motherhood are the two most common shame triggers for women, working through these feelings and addressing the underlying beliefs is critical. We will celebrate what is working for you and explore those areas that you would like to work a little (or a lot) better.
Focus on your future
As a mum it can be easy to get caught up in the busyness of life and not focus on the future beyond which school your child will go to or even what the next meal will be. The Finding Fabulous coaching model gives you the time and space to really explore your values, life purpose and goals outside of your role as mum. You may find this hard – to separate yourself from your family – and so, as your coach, I allow you a lot of time and space to just explore all the possibilities and create some new awareness. What does “fabulous” mean for you?
Foster self compassion
Mums are caretakers, nurturers and protectors for their families. Unfortunately, this does not always translate to great self-care. We are bombarded with imagery of self-sacrificing mothers and it can be hard to break through these societal pressures to take time for ourselves. This stage addresses the underlying beliefs that are holding you back from doing what you love and what re-energizes you. We will explore what makes your heart sing, your “fabulous”, and then address the logistics of creating time to do it – every day!
Formation of structure
Once you have a clearer picture of what “fabulous” looks like for you, we will co-create a structure to achieve your goals. We will work on creating SMART goals (specific, measurable, attainable, relevant and time-bound) and address any potential barriers. If you wish, I can act as a weekly accountability partner to help move you into action (and keep you there!).
Flex and flaunt it
By far my favorite part of the process! I love to hear about your successes and the changes in how you are living your life now that you are embracing your “fabulous”. I will encourage you to celebrate every success, always remembering that progress is success. I acknowledge the growth I see in you and I will challenge you to unleash your fabulousness on the world!
