I’m not the easiest person to coach. Being a life coach myself I often feel very aware of others coaches’ choices in how they lead the conversation, and my own daily practice of reflection and self-questioning meant I had done a lot of pre-work.
I wanted someone who would take me to new places I hadn’t yet looked up, help me discover my own paradigm of the world, challenge it and help me connect the dots of my thinking and behaviour. And find and uncover the depth of my blind spots.
Our sessions were long and we covered a lot of ground each time, but I never got the sense that Yannick wasn’t with me. I need a lot of space to think, and Yannick gave me this safe space whilst showing a deep presence and lots of curiosity. I felt truly heard. He provided me the right balance of showing empathy and challenge.
I felt I came to him with a lot on my plate. Completing my coach training, running another business that I loved but involved so many spinning plates, and working through a lot of fatigue and stress that was affecting my health. I needed clarity, and more balance so I could make the best decisions.
Coaching is something I feel that is often under appreciated. More than anything, Yannick helped me tap into my intuition which had the answers about what I needed to do. The fact he did this with what felt like natural ease, highlights his expertise in this area. It felt like chatting to a friend – we felt on the same wavelength – and he brought all of himself to the session, which then also allowed me to express all my quirks too.
The result of our coaching? More clarity about who I am, what I want and what I can do to achieve this. We worked through a lot of limiting beliefs, he helped me realise what I really craved and needed in my life such that by the 6th session I had finally made a decision to change something in my life that I had been wanting to do for 3-4 years. And I can’t wait to implement it! Thanks, Yannick.
I would absolutely work with Yannick again in the future.
