Mental Health

Studies conducted by the International Coaching Federation on the effectiveness of life coaching showed that 99% of the people they interviewed saw their experience working with a life coach as rewarding, while 96% said working with a life coach helped them improve their performance at work and 80% said that it helped improved their self esteem.

It appears that we are more comfortable telling our friends that we are seeing a life coach over a therapist. Our culture shuns talk of mental health issues. We feel uncomfortable talking about things like depression, anxiety and self care. But without the right tools to manage these treatable issues, they show up in our personal lives, in our work output and add strain on our relationships. 

3 reasons to consider mental health coaching:

One in four people are currently live with un-managed stress, trauma and mental health issues. This shows up as anger, resentment, fear and low productivity.

Many companies do use the services of an employee wellness programme, yet how many people managers are equipped to understand the benefit of developing emotional intelligence and positive mind-sets and behaviour within their direct reports and or teams on the job?

One of the reasons that people hire a mental health coach is to improve productivity, creativity and customer service. Working with a coach, they learn how to be far more effective, efficient and productive in everything that they do, including their jobs, business dealings, personal relationships and projects.

An experienced coach acts as a motivator and partner. They see through the excuses that individuals make and hold them accountable for their personal development. Mental health coaching supports ‘getting your head’ right, a positive mind-set and a healthy self esteem. 

Sometimes the worst place is to be is in your own head… in the same breath sometimes the best place to be is in your own head. #getyourheadright.
