Are you ready to grow a new path forward?

With Positive Health Coaching from GrowingANew, you can explore and experiment with new ways of moving forward in your life.

This can involve a specific goal. You don’t need to have a goal. The process of learning may lead you to a chosen goal.

Life presents challenges, these can be called transitions.
I personally have experienced transitions in my career and in my personal life. I have learned scientific resilience skills. These are tools that I share as a coach. 

I will support you with:

  • Clarity Of Direction
  • Discover What Matters To You At This Time In Your Life
  • Consider What Serves You Moving Forward
  • Realign With Your Core Values And Be Engaged With Work, Home and Nature
  • Make An Action Plan/Health Plan

     

Why the Tree? You Might ask.

"Mary is a gifted coach. In the 6 sessions that we worked together, she helped me to gain clarity into my goals and aspirations from the roots. We delved into core concepts such as courage, authenticity and purpose, with a clear intention of demystifying what these meant for my life. I consistently came away with innumerable insights which paved the way forward in my personal and professional journeys. The tools and methods Mary deployed over the 6 weeks demonstrated her expertise as a life coach and accountability partner, as we routinely took theoretical mental structures, uncovered the biases and self-imposed limitations, and attached tangible goals associated with my vision of a successful life. I can confidently say that Mary has a gift for seeing people, understanding intuitively who they are, and providing an organized structure and process for helping them go from point A to point B, particularly if they are unsure of where they are even looking to get to. I feel more rooted, confident, courageous, and certain of my path ahead for my business and my life and I truly cannot thank Mary enough for it."

"While navigating big changes in my life (location/ career/ relationship), Mary's sessions have been invaluable to me. She has helped me to prioritise what is important in terms of my values and this has provided much needed clarity around how to create a life that is meaningful for me. Mary's wealth of knowledge is evident in every session and her warmth and sense of fun make the whole process very enjoyable. Her approach is positive and uplifting and she seems to have an innate intuition about what will best serve your needs.

All I can say is - it works! And the effects of my time spent with Mary has had such positive results in many areas of my life. I can honestly say I am more present, tend to regress less into negative thinking and am really looking forward to what the future holds. I also now have a large set of tools that I will continue to draw on to achieve my goals and to navigate life's ups and downs."

A Transition is a period of change when it often feels uncomfortable and unfamiliar. It is a time when support can make all the difference. It can be a time leading to behavioural change. It can be transformational. 

Transition can seem like a healing fractured limb. If the splinting is absent, the healing that occurs may reduce future functioning.

A Transition can also be a time when we experience imbalance. Having a focus on what you need supports you to move better through times of transition and build your resilience.

Sometimes we don’t know what we need… I, as your coach, can support you to discover what it is that you need to move through the transition, to a more balanced way of living your life.

FAQ

Most Frequently Asked Questions

Positive Health Coaching can support and enable you in actions that serve you well, in living your life, through a positive lens. 

Positive Psychology uses a strengths-based approach.  Everyone has the potential to succeed, and I work with clients to identify their character strengths and develop a plan for their Positive Health Goals and embrace being your best self.

Research provides evidence that living in line with your values, using your strengths daily and acting on what is most important to you at this time, is the source of a happy life. 

That is choosing to live with Quality Of Life. 

I invite you to identify your own strengths through this

What is Coaching?

Coaching is a professional, safe space for you to explore with support, and options, to move forward enabled in living your life. The British Psychological Society formally recognises Coaching as facilitating a scientifically informed profession.

The service is contracted and agreed upon between the Coach and Coachee, (being coached)

What is  Mentoring?

Mentoring supplements coaching. It is when I share tailored knowledge and expertise with you that is a good fit in your context. Mentoring provides you with the science and the lived experiences, through, data, stories and metaphors. 

What is Positive Health Coaching, through transitions?

A facilitated, evidenced-based relational approach with a positive lens.  Positive Health Coaching creates  a whole person design that opens doors  for you to grow and to thrive in your life. It draws on the evidence from Positive Health Science, founded in the  Royal College of Surgeons In Ireland, (RCSI),  Dublin. It combines Positive Psychology, Lifestyle Medicine and Behavioural Change.

I meet you where you are :

Where?  In-Person/ Online/ Outdoors.

As:  An Individual, a Team or as a Group. 

What is the style or approach delivered?

 1. I deliver coaching with a Positive Health Science approach. 

 2. I deliver a Climate Focused Coaching, with a Think Global, Act Local approach. 

In both areas, designing for behavioural change and habits that serve you in your circle of life. 

With a goal or without a goal, that is the question. 

The minimum period is 6 sessions over 6  weeks. Coaching for you requires commitment, preparation, planning and responses, but most of all willingness to move forward. 

It can be difficult to set a time from the outset. There is so much unknown that will be uncovered and obstacles even to chosen goals may appear. 

Each individual’s need / Team our Group needs, require a personalised Positive Health Coaching approach and an evolving coaching plan. 

The fee is value-based. It is specific to the needs of the person/persons being coached. 

The value placed is relative to the identified and agreed needs of the coaching. Positive Health Coaching places Value on Quality of Life and is placed in the context of where you, your team/ group are starting. Coaching meets you where you are at. 

The fees are costed, agreed upon and are requested to be prepaid.

My coaching process is personalised to each client.

 However, there are some general steps that we follow:

    1. Chemistry Call: a free call of a minimum of 15 minutes, to see if / how we can work together. 
    2. Contracted Agreement: is outlined and weekly sessions are planned. The contract is emailed, signed and returned before the first coaching session. 
    3.  First session: Getting to know you and your specific context and hopes. I call this setting the Agenda. Stories may be shared. 
    4.  Following Sessions: Building Self Awareness, discovering your 24 Character Strengths.
    5. Goal setting: Once we know your goals, I  work with you SMART to set specific, measurable, achievable, relevant, and time-bound goals.
    6. Planning: in the direction of your chosen goal We will co-create a plan to help you achieve your goals. This plan will include specific steps that you agree to act on. This is called Experimenting. 
    7. The Learning that comes from weekly feedback is explored. I  will provide you with personalised options to move you in the direction of your chosen goals. This coaching relationship will include support, guidance, (sometimes, agreed mentoring) and accountability. I call this the Process.
    8. Reflection:  l encourage you to reflect on your progress and make adjustments to your plan as needed. This can be uncomfortable at times and I ask questions respecting your willingness to dig deeper. Tools and models of coaching are applied explaining the rationale for using each. A notebook is encouraged and is part of the ongoing learning process. 
  • The Newly Growing Path: This evolves over sessions and may not become clear until exploring and experimenting is complete.
  1. Building Confidence. I call Practice. Tools and approaches are offered to support you to be enabled with your personalised new ways of doing. Coaching supports an efficient approach to Behaviour Change. 
  2. Celebration: This is your opportunity to recognise what you have grown. I call this GrowingANew. This is perhaps where we say farewell. Celebration is welcomed throughout our coaching sessions. 

 Behaviour Change that is meaningful and long-lasting evolves through steps and practice. During the stages of the coaching, a mid-assessment of the value of the learning is made. Feedback is requested within each session.

 As clarity develops, a goal can be identified. A goal may even change. Steps to where you want to go may need to be refined after experimenting. 

I propose that if you are new to coaching, you will gain valuable insight, through a  6 week commitment.  

When working with teams or groups over a longer period, through transitions, I advise having specified check-in points to review learning and application, as a review to plan forward efficiently and effectively.
