Why I'm a better listener than your partner (and how that makes me a damn good coach!)

By Charlotte Pointeaux, Certified Womxn's Life Coach, Sacred Circle Holder and author of Simply Sacred Self-Care

Why do I believe in coaching? What's involved? And why would you pick me as your coach out of all the bazillions of coaches out there?

If you’ve never worked with a coach before – or even if you have – you might have questions about what *exactly* coaching is and what’s involved.

- Because every coach is different.

- Because every coach’s life experience and training is different.

- Because every coach is incredibly knowledgeable and passionate about different things.

- Because my energy and personality is different,

- And because the way I like to show up for you is different to anyone else out there.

I bring all of my training, my professional experience, and my personal gifts of holding space, listening, and hearing beneath what you’re saying (or not saying!) to guide you with loving patience, nurturing and accountability straight to what you most desire in your life, and find ways to create this for yourself even when you think its out of reach.

Because I’m trained to listen to you.

And I don’t mean listen to you like your husband does, or even your friends do – I mean really HEAR you.

Without judgement, without interrupting, without competing or expecting anything from you in return.

Without imagining your life through my own lens. Without deciding if I agree, or thinking I know better. And without trying to save or fix you.

Our partners, families and friends are usually really uncomfortable with you not having all the answers, and hearing you express your fears, doubts, and concerns. So much so that they become unable to just sit with your feelings and challenges, and instead rush in to comfort you, downplay your experience or make the problem go away for you. This can leave you feeling unheard, unsupported, dismissed, and unable to be really honest with them or yourself.

This is where I as a coach come in.

I give you the time and sacred space to be fully, unapologetically you, and to express what’s on your mind, your dreams, your fears, what you feel is blocking you. And I help you find clarity in the overwhelm to overcome any stuckness you’re feeling in your daily life as a mother.

I wholeheartedly know you have all the wisdom and answers you actually need within you right now. It's just that we've been so conditioned into doubting ourselves - our female emotions, bodies, intuition - that we've turned to validation to other people and 'experts' to guide us. We womxn forget how to listen and trust ourselves. We fear getting it wrong and being scolded for it, lectured with an "I told you so". And we often are the ones scolding ourselves, because the shame response inside us is strong.

So when I listen to you, witness you, encourage you and help you build confidence in your own voice, power, resilience and capacity to decide and live for yourself, you re-learn how to be an embodied, sovereign womxn. All for yourself, by yourself.

This is how I work as a coach.

And I think this is what all coaches should do- but many, many of them don't.

Instead there are coaches out there whose priority focus is glory, and pushing you at any cost to get themselves a boast-worthy result.

I don't go for the quick fixes. I won't rush past the challenging, often uncomfortable work of exploring the shadowy limiting beliefs and fears. And I won't talk all over you acting like I'm some kind of expert, either.

“Coaching with Charlotte has been an empowering, life-changing and transformative experience. Before I felt so stuck in old patterns of self-sabotage and perfectionism, I wasn’t living to my full potential and I really felt like I needed some help to move forward. Having completed my coaching I feel better than I have in a long time. I feel elated, powerful, and have a sense of mastery over my life. Personally, the biggest change for me is that I’m committed, focused, happy, and living in authentic alignment with my values - I feel on fire! I can't thank Charlotte enough for her support, guidance, warmth, nurturing and wisdom.” - Nicole ”

In our sessions we'll also play with rituals, oracle cards, and we might explore gentle meditation or embodiment in our sessions to help you make sense of what’s going on.

I'll give you actual tools to support and guide you through not just our coaching time together, but the long term, so you can continue to nurture yourself and your kids in practical, meaningful and real ways.

Our time together is magickal. It’s healing. It’s empowering. It’s downright powerful and delicious all at once. And I freaking LOVE showing up for my coaching clients.

If this sounds like just what you need right now – please read over all the details on my site at www.charlottepointeaux.com/magickmama and if it speaks straight to your soul, fill out the enquiry form to get the ball gently rolling. I can’t wait to get to know you better, and help you ignite your inner magick.

So much love
