Who is this coaching package for?
The problem with stress is that you can often feel like stress is in control of you rather than the other way around.
This stress coaching package will be suitable for you if:
- You are experiencing a high level of stress and need to make changes but are not quite sure how to do so
- Are experiencing negative effects from stress such as fatigue, burnout, anxiety, digestive issues or sleep problems but don’t feel you have enough to manage stress by yourself
- Have a lot going on in your life and are feeling overwhelmed from trying to manage everything but you don’t know where to start to regain a more balanced life
- You already know you need to tackle stress in your life but want an expert and an ally to guide and support you through strategic changes to get back on top of your stress
- You need to master stress and build resilience so you can continue to grow and push yourself but in a sustainable way
What to expect from your stress coach:
When you work with a DYLC coach your specific needs and situation will always be at the forefront of the coaching. The coach’s job is to work hard to find out what is best for your current situation and to help you integrate individualised action steps and strategies that will work for you.
The coach does not try and impose a plan onto you and instead works with you to create a plan that is appropriate for your needs at this time.
We see you as being the expert in your life and therefore we do not feel qualified to tell you what to do. Our aim is to combine our expertise in stress and behavioural change and to work with you to create the most effective plan that can be integrated into your lifestyle with the most ease
What not to expect from your stress coach:
You will not be simply told what to do!
You will not be given generic advice that is not appropriate to you
You will not be given a generic stress management protocol that may or may not suit your individual needs or requirements.
