Life as a coach or NLP practitioner or coach can be remarkably rewarding. The pleasure of helping people make huge leaps in their lives and overcoming major blocks is a joy and a privilege. But the path to finding yourself personally and establishing yourself as a professional can be a challenge.

Coach In The Spotlight – Launa Walker

Posted by: The Coaching Academy In: Coach Spotlight

I guess I must be the last person in the UK to have heard of coaching! I had been managing staff in various guises for 16 years when I lost my job last year. I froze in blind panic, I had never been out of work, did not have a CV and didn’t know where to start.

Sarah Mackay qualified through The Coaching Academy programme and has enthusiastically agreed to share her coaching experience, so we have put her in the Coaching Hot Seat.

I qualified as a coach with The Coaching Academy back in 2005 after a career in teaching and training. I have always been intrigued by how people learn and how it is that some find the process enjoyable and fulfilling while others (like my son, who is dyslexic) appear to struggle, so my niche area almost ‘chose itself’, and I now always describe myself as a ‘learning coach’.

I have been setting goals since the heady days of 1990 when I first became an NLP Practitioner. Master Practitioner and a year long hypnotherapy diploma followed and I continued to set goals. Looking back over my notes, I have pretty much failed to achieve any of them.
