BECOME A COACH
I often get asked why I decided to become a coach. While coaching is a rapidly growing industry, there are still a lot of people who have heard of coaching, but don't know what it is, making it unknown territory.
To be honest, I’m not sure that I fully understood what coaching was, and its little intricacies, when I decided it’s what I wanted to do. BUT let me tell you… it is the best thing I have ever done, because I get to help and support people in a way that is so fulfilling and rewarding, and because I studied with The Beautiful You Coaching Academy (BYCA).
WHY DID I DECIDE TO BECOME A COACH?
If you’ve read my ABOUT page, you will know a lot of my story, and if you haven’t, I’d recommend you check it out because it’s where all the juicy bits are.
I’ve always felt called to help and serve other people, and I thought that was by being a police officer. I was wrong. When I left the police force I went through a process to try and figure out what I was going to do with my life. I’ll be honest, I didn’t think I would ever find anything that I was completely satisfied with again, that challenged me mentally, that was exciting and that really made me happy.
While I was working with my psychologist (who also uses coaching strategies) we were brainstorming what I wanted to do. We talked about becoming a psychologist, which definitely appealed me, but I’m a bit impatient, so going back to University for 6 years wasn’t ideal, and I didn’t want to spend every day discussing peoples’ past experiences. Then coaching came up and we talked about how it’s a way of helping people achieve their goals, and my psych told me that her best friend is a coach and makes more money than she does… “SIGN ME UP” I said! Jokingly of course (but also little bit serious).
That’s when I started doing my research and discovered coaching is so much more than money, it's a way of being,it's a lifestyle, an opportunity to truly help other people, a way of contributing and a way I could help make the world a better place.
WHY DID I CHOOSE BEAUTIFUL YOU?
I looked into every life coaching course I could find. I wanted to know everything about coaching, the ins and outs, the positives, the negatives and most importantly, “HOW” do I become a coach.
I don’t know how many coaching courses I looked at, but it was A LOT!!! But to be honest, I felt a bit disappointed with most of them. They felt very sterile, very corporate (which we all know isn’t for me), very ‘back to schooly’… Then I remember (and this is where fate / destiny / meant to be – whatever you want to call it) comes into play. I remember seeing a friend of mine post something on Instagram about studying to be a life coach. So I jumped on over to her page and stalked her insta like crazy, until “Voila” I found it!
The Beautiful You Coaching Academy. I checked out their website (about 50 times) and OMG was it different. It was pink for starters, but there were beautiful pictures of people smiling, it was informative so I knew exactly what would be involved, there was heart and soul, and most of all, it really spoke to me. I knew that this course would be one of love and inspiration, but also one that gave me everything I needed to be an incredible coach.
I spoke to my friend on the phone to ask more questions, despite deep down already knowing I was going to sign up. She told me it was the best thing she had ever done, because not only was she able to create her own incredible business, she also had 6 months of personal development and she met the most amazing people, all part of the BYCA family.
This was when I said Yes! Yes to me. Yes to the life I want. Yes to amazing new opportunities.
WHAT DID I LEARN FROM TRAINING WITH BEAUTIFUL YOU?
How to be an incredible life coach and serve my clients in my own unique way.
Tools and strategies that helped me on my own personal development journey. I learnt the questions I needed to ask myself in order to achieve my desired outcome, which also helps me show up for my clients in a deeper way than I thought was possible. (Even if I didn’t start my own business, the personal development alone would be worth the investment to study with BYCA!!)
How to support and guide my clients through their own coaching journey as they experience massive shifts in their life and discover things about themselves they hadn’t realised or thought about.
How to set up and create a business that I absolutely love. I went from having no business and no idea where to start, to creating my website, creating my services and ultimately my business and future. Beautiful You gave me everything I needed to do this, and I got to learn more about some of the most inspiring coaches, how they set up their business and about their coaching journey.
How to use my own experiences as a tool to support my clients.
I’ve met the most amazing people throughout this journey. While you’re studying, you can choose to work with a buddy (I highly recommend this), which means you get to support each other throughout the journey and you have someone who understands what you are going through. You will also meet so many other wonderful people at inspiration days, throughout your coaching series and at events hosted by other BYCA coaches.
You really do get more than you pay for. Truth be told, I don’t see it as ‘paying’ for something, it truly is an investment into yourself. This course over delivers in every way, in addition to learning everything you need to create your soulful business, you get to listen to amazing guest interviews and learn from the best in the business.
The coaches at BYCA are…. I actually don’t have the words to explain how wonderful, brilliant, talented, supportive, caring and awesome they are.
You get to work with and learn from the incredible Julie Parker. The amount of love and brilliance she exudes is next to none, she's a straight shooter (in the most loving way) and truly is a remarkable person.
In case you haven’t figured it out, training through Beautiful You really has changed my life in so many ways, and it is something I will be forever grateful for.
