I know as an advocate for health consumers, the very fact of your presence at a consultation, even if you said nothing, radically altered and usually improved whatever may have been going on between patient and health care provider.
Like many people I felt that coaching was just not for me. I couldn’t afford it, what was the point, I knew what I needed to do so why would I pay anyone for that?
The sad reality is that most of us just do not follow through on what we say we will do. For a thousand reasons, it just doesn’t happen. I couldn’t believe the difference it made to me to have someone I had to speak to each week or fortnight, to let them know how I had gone with my self-imposed goals. The many areas I was just not showing up in appeared in stark relief.
We humans are very strange, and making the decision to work with a coach was one of the best things I have ever done. Apart from becoming a mum that is 🙂
