    What is Coaching

    Here at Raw Horizons Academy we specialise in Wellbeing Coaching. How is this different from What is wellbeing coaching?regular Life Coaching?

    Firstly, what is wellbeing? Wellbeing can be defined as health, happiness and success. However these terms are very subjective in their meaning and have a different truth for every person.

    A more objective definition is that overall wellbeing is a state in which every individual realises his or her own potential, can cope with the normal stresses of life, can work productively and fruitfully, and is able to make a contribution to her or his community.

    Over the last 50 years, we in Britain have become richer. Despite this, evidence from population surveys – in which people were asked to rate their own happiness or mental wellbeing – shows that overall wellbeing has not improved.

    As more and more people deal with stress, low energy, overwhelm, frustration and self-doubt they are now turning to positive ways to overcome such pressures. Enter the role of the wellbeing coach: to re-motivate, re-inspire, re-energise and help people get back on track and more out of life.

    Using methods and techniques that Dr Claire Maguire herself used to regain her own self-confidence, re-set her goals and recreate a positive body image after her trauma with breast cancer, she developed her own proprietary program for wellbeing coaching.

    Together with working with hundreds of people through her successful private food relationship and wellbeing coaching practice plus her flourishing residential retreat programs, she has refined her coaching techniques and skills into her unique Wellbeing Coach Training Course.

    Based on the same underlying foundations as Life Coaching, a wellbeing coach is there to guide his or her client to bring about a clearer understanding of their issues or concerns, help to reframe and re-interpret, look forward to their aspirations and the goals they wish to achieve, and inspire the necessary changes in their behaviour to ensure the realisation of those objectives and desires.

    By skilfully listening, questioning, reflecting, encouraging, challenging and supporting, a wellbeing coach guides their client to look to the future by helping them design and execute their own solutions to their problems and challenges..

    Who is a Coach

    Anyone can become a life coach.Who is a wellbeing coach?

    You do not need a degree in psychology, counselling or any other qualification for that matter and, currently, you do not need to be registered with any professional body.

    You do not need to be of any specific age. People from their 20’s through to their 60’s have made careers as life coaches. You just need the right attitude, qualities and skills to be a great coach.

    Life coaching is all about delivering great results for your clients. The passion of coaches to empower people to live the life they desire is of utmost importance.

    Students include those working in the corporate arena who wish to add to their current qualifications, holistic practitioners who wish to complement their existing skills and individuals looking for a new rewarding career.

    The following is a good indication of the traits required to be a great life coach:

    • Positive - the client needs to be inspired by your belief in them and your own passion for what you do
    • Empathy & passion to help others - the ability to feel and share your client’s emotions plus have a desire to help them
    • Great active listener - coaching is about listening to all the subtle signs and messages in order to understand what is going on for the client.
    • Non-opinionated - not needing to give advice, as coaching is all about facilitating the client to their own answer.
    • Non-judgmental - being open-minded enough to understand that other people have different points of view, and that in their worldview, they may correct.
    • Curious - coaching is all about asking questions so it helps to have an inquisitive mind
    • Challenging - great coaches challenge the client in many ways to create clarity, honesty and to focus on the reality
    • Observant - a great coach can spot the subtle signs of uncertainty, anxiety or apprehension but equally see the spark of excitement, the “aha” moment or the catalyst that triggers a client’s motivation
    • Good communicator - the ability to communicate effectively and clearly on many levels is vital to being a good coach
    • Honesty and integrity - a successful coaching relationship is based on trust and must be free of hidden agendas

    These traits coupled together with the skill sets and coaching techniques that Raw Horizons teaches through their accredited training course, will enable you to become a great coach.
