Lifestyle coaching is an approach to corporate, life and sports performance and adopts a whole person philosophy
As a lifestyle coach, Rachael, draws on a variety of experience as a professional and international athlete to deliver a more integrated coaching approach to performance and stress management. She combines knowledge and experience of the body, mindfulness, leadership development and ontological coaching techniques*.
Simply put, this unique coaching approach to corporate, life and sports performance adopts a whole person philosophy encompassing four dimensions of energy management – physical (body), mental (mind), emotional (sensations) and spiritual (purpose).
The ontological coaching model works towards cultivating a deeper relationship you as an observer of your life. We often create a way of being, seeing and behaving based on our history and experiences. Her aim is to facilitate a deeper self-awareness and gently challenge the way you observe the world, in order to create subtle shifts in mindset and performance that create different results that are more aligned to that which you are hoping to achieve.
Rachael uses various methodologies when coaching her clients including training the body, conversations that challenge mindset and existing behaviours and health technology to create a physiological map of the client and their management of stress, recovery, energy expenditure, sleep quality vs quantity and physical activity.
*Ontology is known as the study of being. This method of coaching is a way of coaching that invites the individual to tap into a deeper awareness of their own lives and the way in which they observe the world around them. We use the body, emotions and language as domains of learning.
How does it work?
3 day Lifestyle Assessment + 60 minute coaching session (Interpretation of data, key recommendations and designing action plan for stress management)
This service involves combining cutting edge technology with the important human element and knowledge of our practitioner Rachael. We create a physiological map of your current lifestyle and state of health and wellbeing. This map helps provide key insights, direction and a foundation in which to create a plan of action. It also provides data that can act as a preventative health measure and base line awareness..
Our aim is to guide you through a journey from feeling to knowing and most importantly to understanding about how you experience the pressures and stress of daily life (perceived and real). Together we explore what is affecting your level of adaptability (resiliency), your energy levels and your level of productivity during work. We also look for moments for self-care and if you have carved out time for things that are meaningful and restorative to you.
We interpret data from the lifestyle assessment together with you. We provide expertise and support to co-create personal practices for the benefit of improving your health and lifestyle. We may sometimes challenge you and push your growth edge to reach a new and healthier way of living. The importance of these practices and challenges is to create a new behaviour or way of being in your life that you desire, a call to action to embody change.
