People with autoimmune conditions face unique challenges. A diagnosis can explain what is happening but for many people, it does little to resolve the psychological grind of living with pain and discomfort and the often huge changes of circumstances that occur when people become ill.
Many of the people I work with who live with these conditions, come to coaching expressing feelings of grief, anger, shame, isolation, uncertainty and helplessness. These big feelings can get in the way and make people feel that they are stuck and unable to live their lives in a meaningful way.
You might feel that although you are receiving treatment for your condition, there is so much more to your experience of living with a change in health and the prospect of long term illness that has not been addressed.
You may be struggling to find a way to live with your condition and feel that you have had to give up on many of the things that you previously enjoyed.
Perhaps you feel anxious about returning to work after a period of absence or about visits to the doctors? Or do you spend a lot of time lost in your thoughts, wishing that things were different?
I work with people just like you to help you to understand those feelings and move you into a place of greater peace, where we can explore your potential and get to know who you are today – someone who lives with a condition but whose life is about much more than that.
Through coaching, I can support you to cultivate a greater feeling of acceptance towards your health and help you to set goals and actions that will move you towards the things that matter to you in your life.
We can also work on equipping you with some psychological tools to help you manage when the going gets tough.
Taking a proactive approach to your psychological wellbeing means that you will feel more empowered.
Working together to help you to achieve your goals will help you to feel more fulfilled and give you a renewed sense of purpose.
Successful coaching relies on commitment. We will explore this together to ensure that you are ready to make the changes you seek and that your goals are manageable, realistic and meaningful.
