We will help you realize your goals, dreams and visions for your life.
Life coaching is an emerging and rapidly growing field.  A life coach, coaches people to enable them to improve, change and develop aspects of their lives. Coaching is a partnership between the coach and the client. Normally at Gcfn Consult we usually have a coaching session once a week at a scheduled time. During the session we will focus on the relevant information and issues. We will create and implement strategies, consider different options and issues and then you’ll make decisions and commit to specific actions to move forward.
With this coaching structure in place, you will be continually focusing your attention on what you really want. Not only that – you’ll be doing something about it! This coupled with holding you accountable and providing the ongoing help and support will make it very difficult for you not to make progress.
Why should I use a Life Coach?
The urge for change often does not last long enough for you to follow through – the motivation seems to come and then go. On your own, in the short-term, its easier for your life to remain the same, rather than  do anything about it. But what about the long-term? How many times will you have had the urge to change, but not do anything about it? What will the cost be to you in 5, 10, 20 years if you’re still the same and nothing has changed? Will you wish you’d started now?
