Coach the Coach
I often get enquiries from life coaches both new and established. I am now pleased to offer a coaching / mentoring service specifically for Life Coaches. A coach-the-coach service if you will. As a leading and experienced UK life coach, based in London, I offer a broad spectrum of support from business establishment through to coaching mastery.
I believe that true effective life coaching springs from deep inside when we embody conviction and alignment with our current unique Life purpose.
Self-belief is your secret ally. You've just got to be able to turn it on, boost it when you need it most. It’s part of the armoury of all people who achieve great things. To win at anything in life, your greatest battle is with yourself. Your most powerful enemy is within. Your greatest ally is there also. The person who has the weapon to make you win or lose is you. Your weapon is your mind. Your mental approach makes you strong or weak, tough or flabby. Conquering yourself is the ultimate challenge. Great self-believers have the edge. They carry within a formidable advantage over the average person. They know how to dig deep and muster additional resources and back-up when called to. They never lose. They always live to fight another day. They always come through. Even if you identify yourself as one of the great self-believers, you’ll still be eager to run a check on your current levels to ensure you’re in peak condition!
As a Life Coach and experienced self-believing leader, I can help you in the following ways:
- Should you be a coach?

I relish the opportunity to exert a powerful positive influence on your life coaching style that can potentially touch hundreds of others who are affected by your coaching.
A recent study in USA concluded the following: Take any hundred coaches at the start of their businesses, follow them for 2 years, and here's what you'll find:
Only 9 will be making six figures
11 will be making over £25,000 a year
53 will be making less than £10,000 a year
40 will have coached fewer than 20 clients
29 will have a job or another source of primary income
12 will have no clients or coaching income at all
In other words, almost 90% of coaches will not be able to support themselves and their families after two years in business. Amazingly, 9 out of 100 coaches will not only be able to support their families, but also reach a high level of coaching income in a relatively short period of time! How do they do it? I can help you answer that question.
Take up the challenge of confident ongoing coaching growth. Using a safe and supportive foundation of trust, freedom of expression and commitment, I always work to help you explore your inner being, to regain balance in your personal and working life and to align with your true values and fullest potential. Using a stimulating one-to-one, phone support and email program customised to fit your current personal development needs, my coaching focuses on your inner guidance, purpose, skills, beliefs, techniques and processes necessary to take you into a great future.
I partner with intelligent, successful coaches who want to excel at their passion, gifts and unique talents in a way that brings them success, happiness and balance. Do what you always did and you will get what you always got!
Life coaching is a profession that bridges the old and the new story, in that it represents the extreme of the old -- the monetization of friendship, the commercialisation of wisdom -- even as, through the breakdown of that model, it invites in the new. I believe the core of coaching is to bring people to truth. Charles Eisenstein
My journey as a life coach has been driven from a deep place. Quite simply I am here on earth to support and inspire people to find their truth and to be authentic. Buyer beware there are many coaches out there who have done a weekend diploma and are now ready to fix your life. People who are thinking of being coaches may find the following facebook post by Jesse Gros of interest...
My profession is broken… (Reposted. I pulled it down yesterday)
Less than 10% of people who go through life coach training as a coach will ever make coaching a legitimate career. That’s over 90% fail rate.
Guess who makes the most money in the business?
Take good guess… (I’ll put a couple spaces before the answer)
People who run coaching schools.
People who are selling the dream to newbies.
Dreams are an easy sell. Just ask anyone who as ever raised venture capital money.
Round one is usually easier, because you are just selling the dream.
Everyone I personally know who is a successful coach, started out coaching people to have fabulous lives and ended up coaching coaches, multilevel marketing sales people, or wannabe real estate mavens. (All an easy sell, with very low barriers to entry, big dreams and extremely low success rates)
Because that’s where the money is: Coaching schools, Master mind groups for coaches, Sales training, Conscious Sales Training, marketing training for coaches, branding classes for coaches and healers, and … well you get the point.
One study showed that a very high percentage of all money made in the business is made by coaches coaching coaches, who coach coaches, who coach coaches and all of the training in between. It’s basically a big cannibalistic, incestuous, pyramid scheme that feeds on itself to stay alive.
One of the more successful coaches I know; has been on Oprah, has New York Times best selling books, etc… Made most of her money through her coaching school, selling the dream. (This is verified in a New York Times article.) And yet, if you scroll through a list of certified coaches, you see a wasteland of abandoned websites and abandoned coaching careers.
Why am I writing this?
I have been observing this trend over the last couple years, and it’s been really bothering me. I have been watching an entire industry selling a dream and a lifestyle that most of the instructors can’t achieve themselves!
Today I hit the limit of my conscience.
While I was in a coaching program for coaches, a meek, hesitant young man stood up and shared that his dream was to make $100,000 a year as a coach. The room clapped. Then he shared again that he actually was holding back. The real number was $700,000. The charismatic, charming leader looked at him and said; “Say that again and own it.” Again more claps for an impossible dream… One that this seasoned, extremely well trained coach has never even come close to! I almost walked out of the room. *Except for the fact that I was there as a presenter myself. And so, there I sat, waiting for my turn, while my mind repeated over and over, “get me out of here.”
Another financially successful coach I know describes himself on the back of his book as “One of the most exclusive, top tier, best in business bla bla bla… coaches” That wasn’t true when he wrote the book and it’s still not true. He’s doing well, but nothing like the description.
In my first book, Your Wild & Precious Life, the back cover describes me as a “World-class life coach.” I didn’t write that line. It was added by one of my editors. BUT… I didn’t delete it either. Yes, I worked with some high level, well known people who are world-class in their fields, but does that make me a world-class coach?? The short answer is NO.
That one line has bothered me for years since the book has been out. (Alex is leaning over my shoulder as I write this… “Take this part out,” she’s saying. “World-class” is up for interpretation.”) It’s not up for interpretation. If I’m a world-class skier, I’m in a very tiny group of people, probably helicopter skiing in Alaska on super vertical runs. I know this, because, one of my clients is TRULY a world-class skier. I’m more like a coach who knows how to go down black diamonds.
I know a coach who talks about his 7-figure income often. I happen to know for a fact, he’s never had one. My friend lives four doors down from his modest home.
So… it appears that many people in the business are exaggerating or just flat out lying, all under the pretense of “fake it till you make it.” It also appears that most of the money is made not actually coaching people out in the world, but rather selling a dream and coaching coaches on chasing a dream that has a very low success rate.
BUT… when I think about leading a coaching program for coaches, part of my body goes numb. I imagine standing on a stage looking out at a room full of hopeful faces, doing my best to get them excited about their bright futures, when I know damn well only about 5-10% will actually be able to turn what I have taught them into a career. That feels really shitty. *I imagine this is how I would have felt if I was a mortgage broker in the early 2000’s selling people homes they couldn’t afford, watching their smiling faces as they left my office… and knowing all while, most of them would probably loose them when the ARM on their loan came up. Unless of course, I was so intoxicated with the easy money that I didn’t even care what happened to my customers.
Have a gorgeous day dancing in the miracle of life won't you x
