Hi, I'm Janice Bowles and for over 20 years I have helped many people overcome their stresses and anxieties and regain life balance.
Everyone has their ups and downs and usually, we get through these phases but at other times we may find ourselves stuck and find it difficult to change. It's then that we need some help to get back on track.
Perhaps your circumstances have changed or you're fed up with your current situation and have that antsy feeling that there must be more to life than this.
Life Coach & Hypnotherapist
It's too easy to just keep going accepting what life throws at you and hoping and wishing for something different but if you do, then one day you might be looking back and thinking, if only...
There are reasons why we don't make changes:
1. It's the unknown and your brain doesn't like the unknown. It prefers the security of 'what is' even if that's boring and unfulfilling.
2. It seems like hard work. Actually, most people don't like the thought of doing anything that might be hard or difficult and that part of your brain that tries to protect you, convinces you that you really don't want to go there!
3. You don't believe that you can. Beliefs operate at a level below our conscious awareness and they tell us stories about how this and that isn't possible for us. Maybe for someone else but not for us! If you allow your beliefs and self-talk to run your life you'll miss out on reaching your true potential and living a full and happy life.
If you're stuck, feeling unfulfilled or disillusioned by life and you're ready to make steps towards creating your future on your terms then coaching might just be what you need to get you there.
I love helping people gain clarity, create meaningful goals and the steps to get them there. I don't do it for you because that isn't the role of a coach but I will show you how to set goals and have them work for you.
Some people don't like the term 'goal' that's fine, we find another term such as dream or intention. If your goals or desires aren't coming to fruition then it's because you lack the right kind of support, someone who has your total interest at heart and someone who is there with you on the journey.
Your friends and family mean well but they don't really understand and why should they? Coaching is a specialized skill and besides it's difficult for those close to you to be completely unbiased and non judgemental.
Another challenge for many people is changing habitual negative thinking, overcoming self-doubt and the anxiety that keeps them from moving forward. I know how crippling it can be and I know why it happens and what to do about it. As a qualified hypnotherapist I have a range of 'techniques in my toolkit' to help anyone overcome these annoying and frustrating traits we humans suffer from!
The good new is that there are solutions to every situation, even when we cannot see the solutions ourselves. That's where I can help.
My role as a coach is to listen, ask meaningful questions, find out what your challenges are and help you discover the outcomes you desire.
I will encourage you to make decisions and take responsibility for those decisions. I will also gently, mostly gently ;) probe and help you discover what is keeping you stuck!
I will not judge you and I therefore encourage complete openness (it's a two-way thing) if we are to get the best from our relationship and time together.
Ultimately, you decide upon the right course of action for you and what you need according to your specific circumstances. This naturally makes for a far better outcome for you and your situation.
If you want to gain clarity and create a meaningful direction for your life we should talk. Take the next step and tell me more about your situation here:
