As an occupational therapist I enjoy using a coaching approach to support people to ‘inspire themselves’ to identify personal aspirations, and then to find the motivation to make changes to move closer to achieving their own vision of what they want out of life.
Vision by Design Coaching from Janet McClean
Utilising core skills from the Model of Human Occupation, plus training in health education, mindfulness and motivational interviewing, I have developed an occupational & motivational coaching approach to support you generate your own ideas and develop your self belief to make creative choices towards healthy self management.
Do you have a vision of how you want your life to be, but can’t quite get there? Or you feel swept along in a fog, sound familiar? “So many things I would have done but clouds got in my way”. (Joni Mitchell)
A coaching conversation can help you identify and deal with any troublesome ‘clouds’ in order to both clarify your own unique vision and then design a positive way forward. “Far a way in the sunshine are my highest aspirations….. I can look up and see their beauty, believe in them, and try to follow where they lead”. (Louisa May Alcott)
According to research finding meaning and fulfilment in our lives has the potential to make us live longer, have a look at my articles for more information. A coaching conversation is a good place to find the support to inspire yourself and find your own direction.
“I offer one to one coaching in person and by telephone” Email: Janet to arrange a free initial consultation.
“Both Janet & Frank strongly believe that the creative processes, singing, playing, writing, sculpture or painting etc., can help a great deal with mental health and quality of life. The smallest amount can help. Listening to music, bird song or the wind in the trees. Looking at landscape, viewing a painting or noticing the sky. Feeling the cold, the heat, softness or textures etc.
The main thing is our intention when doing it and the process of ‘taking’ it in. We don’t have to be great or even a good ‘artist’, just do it sincerely for our own well being. The funny thing is that, the process of doing it, can be one of the best ways to help others.”
