The term Spirited is an energetic and uplifting word which conveys enthusiasm, determination, courage and vibrancy - and the enduring spirit within all of us.
Spirited coaching inspires and supports people to find their purpose, so they can live an authentic and fulfilling life, doing what they love.
“Passion is energy. Feel the power that comes from focusing on what excites you.”
– Oprah Winfrey
Spirited coaching is a dynamic process that takes into consideration the unique energy that each person brings to coaching. It’s that feeling or vibe you get when you meet someone new and think to yourself “gosh, they have a gentle spirit”, or a very powerful presence, or are warm and friendly. This energy serves as a clue to your wider purpose because it reflects your unique qualities and personality.
Is this style of coaching a bit woo woo?
I don’t think so (but I like a bit of woo woo). As a Spirited coach I’m very down-to-earth and grounded in a whole lot of life experience and professional achievements. I’m also trying to live as authentically as I can – Spirited is part of me and who I am in the world.
Why does purpose matter?
Research shows that having a sense of purpose makes you more resilient, supports you in reaching your life goals and contributes to a longer, happier, and healthier life!
Purpose matters – particularly if you sense it like a magnet. You might feel compelled to seek it out and understand what it is. This doesn’t happen to everyone, so if it’s calling you, listen up!
Purpose also matters when we notice a lack of interest and excitement in our life (work, play, health) or even relationships. We can often feel lost, frustrated and directionless, or hopeless instead of hopeful. It’s not a satisfying or fulfilling way to live your life.
In a Spirited Coaching session, I guide people to remember and explore the things that light them up. You will know when you’re passionate about something because your energy expands dramatically – you can spend hours absorbed in something without noticing time passing by (also known as ‘flow’). But for some people that experience is still missing (so far). Spirited coaching encourages you to explore parts of yourself, or those hidden dreams that you haven’t yet lived.
When we look back over patterns in our life, we can start to see the common themes that reflect what we most enjoy, what matters to us and who we essentially are as a unique human being. We see where our strengths and skills lie, what others say we’re good at, and to what areas of life we are drawn to (e.g., health, community, environment, politics etc.). The next stage is mustering the courage and self-belief to step outside our comfort zone and try something new. A coach is a great motivator and champion to help you take those steps.
Who is Spirited Coaching for?
Spirited coaching is for the seekers, the dreamers, the ones with a song in their heart that’s waiting to be sung. It’s also for people who feel a dimming of their spirit and long to have passion, clarity and more energy in their lives, and a new and exciting focus.
It takes courage to try something new – it takes determination and perseverance to make a difference.
It takes a spark to light a wildfire to set you on your way.
Trust in yourself – get Spirited!
“I believe purpose is our spirits call for expression – the full expression of our
true self”. -- Spirited Coach
