Why work with a coach?

Who wouldn’t want time, investing in making their life better, where the other person is completely focused on them?

Are you overwhelmed by life, want to change things but don’t even know where to begin? Do you dread parts of your life but can’t see a way out of things being that way? Have you got a vague idea of some goals you would like to achieve in life but can’t see how you will ever have the time or motivation to get them done?¬†Coaching can get the ball rolling and make awesome stuff happen.

If you want to maximise your preparedness for weight loss surgery and hit the ground running after your procedure (not literally, you’ve just had major surgery!) then we can make this happen through coaching.

Have you had weight loss surgery and your head can’t keep up with the changes to your body? Do you not feel quite right or know that things are different for you now but can’t put your finger on it? Have you uncovered some long buried hopes and dreams for yourself but don’t know where to start or have the confidence to even try? We can collaborate, get creative and figure out your new direction in life and how to get there through coaching.

Why work with a fellow bariatric buddy as your coach? I understand the limitations and restrictions you have to live by after weight loss surgery. I get what you are going through, you don’t need to explain your thoughts in great detail to me, I just get it. I’m that accountability partner who will increase your motivation simply by following up with you and acknowledging your progress. My greatest joy as a coach is seeing people fully inhabit themselves, start living life as their true self and reach goals they never fully believed they would accomplish.

How do I get started working with you?

The first step is to check out the coaching packages and sessions I offer further down the page and get in touch through the Enquire Now button! I have limited spaces available because I want to give each person I am working with the absolute best I can.

The second step is to have a 15 minute meet and greet chat with you before we embark on a coaching package to make sure the fit is right. One coach is not necessarily the right coach for every person who wants to be coached so let’s have a chat to make sure we both feel comfortable with each other before proceeding.

The third step is to get all the admin sorted. I will forward you our coaching agreement so the expectations of and from both sides are clear at the outset. Once that has been returned and payment is received we can get started!

Where do we meet?

The vast majority of my coaching is delivered online. This means we can work together wherever either of us are in the world! I find online coaching just as connected and intimate as coaching in person and the ease of meeting where we don’t have to be in a certain place at a certain time can’t be beaten. I can use whatever video calling platform is easiest for you and I’m already set up and ready to go on Skype, FaceTime and Zoom.

I am based in Auckland, New Zealand and will consider enquiries for in person, face-to-face coaching. Please note, depending on location and the travel involved the quoted prices for the packages will not apply for this coaching arrangement and are price on application.

The Bariatric Gold Pre-Surgery Preparation coaching package

This coaching package has been created with the pre-surgery bariatric in mind. Over six weeks in the lead up to your surgery we will look at what we can do now to optimise your results before surgery and help you get some post surgery habits established to smooth the initial post surgery transition. Each session will be followed up with an email outlining the goals and action points we set during the session. Unlimited email support is included in this package (replies within one business day) so if you need to bounce ideas around, update me on your progress or need a little bit of extra encouragement then I’m all ears! You will get access to the Bariatric Gold Facebook group where you will meet like minded bariatric buddies and the support of a fantastic group.

The Bariatric Gold Craft Your Dream Life coaching package

This coaching package has been created with the post-surgery bariatric who is at least three to six months out from surgery in mind. We will start with an in depth, two-hour coaching session to figure out exactly what you want out of life now that things are so different and the world is opening up to you. We will articulate and define the goals, big and small, that you want to start working towards. From there we will create action points to work on between sessions so you can start working your way there.

In the subsequent coaching sessions we will track and create more action points. We will celebrate milestones and acknowledge the progress you are making. We will both be open to your goals shifting or changing throughout the process as your confidence to live your life exactly as you want to grows. In our final session we will reflect on your coaching and bariatric journeys and see just how far you have come!

Each session will be followed up with an email outlining the goals and action points we set during the session. Unlimited email support is included in this package (replies within one business day) so if you need to bounce ideas around, update me on your progress or need a little bit of extra encouragement then I’m all ears! You will get access to the Bariatric Gold Facebook group where you will meet like minded bariatric buddies and the support of a fantastic group.

The Bariatric Gold Getting Back on Track coaching package

This coaching package has been created with the post-surgery bariatric who is at least three to six months out from surgery in mind. We will start by identifying what the biggest pain points in your life are and what needs to change. We will craft the vision of where you want to be and articulate that into specific goals. Over the eight weeks we will create the change you need in your life, work through action points and get you well set up for when things don’t quite go to plan in the future.

Each session will be followed up with an email outlining the goals and action points we set during the session. Unlimited email support is included in this package (replies within one business day) so if you need to bounce ideas around, update me on your progress or need a little bit of extra encouragement then I’m all ears! You will get access to the Bariatric Gold Facebook group where you will meet like minded bariatric buddies and the support of a fantastic group.

The Bariatric Gold One-off Session

To get the best results and full benefits of coaching a package with multiple sessions is recommended. The one-off session is a great option to help you define your goals and create an action plan to achieve them. There is very limited email follow up after the single coaching session. A one-off coaching session can be a great option if you want to see what coaching is all about and if you enjoy the process. It can also be a great refresher if we have worked together before, you’re implementing the strategies and tools we used in a previous coaching journey and you want a session to help you drill down on a new set of goals.
