A Coaching Model Created by Gaëlle Bovy
(Career and Well Being Coach, THAILAND)
As a coach, consultant and human being, I strongly believe our mind, body and spirit are connected. They all have an impact on each other and in order to have a fulfilling and balanced life, we should take into consideration these 3 dimensions.
Path to the new you” is designed to help people who want to work on their body, mind and spirit. Separately (put capital) or on 2 or 3 dimensions together. The aim is to be able to support you, depending on your specific needs and help with a holistic approach.
This process is a support for a client’s life transformation. It helps to discover more about who you are on a deeper level, and invites you to reinvent yourselves before moving into action.
It is created for people who want to make changes in their life. When I refer to change, I’m talking about long lasting transformational changes. It is designed for busy people who are so overwhelmed with their day-to-day life, with their responsibilities at work and home that they reach a high level of stress, burn-out, illness, fatigue that they lose the connection with themselves, their bodies and their spirit.
Maybe you are in a certain routine, you know it’s not optimal but you don’t have time to think, to complain or the energy to change. You continue until one day when you feel inside you that something NEEDS to happen differently NOW.
You know it’s not the way you want to live for the next 5 years.
The first step is to Identify your need, your desire. It will determine on which level you are seeking support. Is the need coming from the mind, body and/or the spirit? To determine that, I have created an assessment tool that is to be taken at the beginning of the coaching process.
The second part is called Dreaming and is about connecting to your aspirations, dreams and ideal life, without any limitation. Exercises like visualization is proposed as such techniques help you to connect back to ideal aspects of your life.
Step three, Understand resistance is about discovering who you are without the influence of your education, without your fears and limiting beliefs. It’s about learning your core values to reach fulfillment and determine the talents that make you special.
This phase is crucial to challenge your thoughts, to get rid of what’s holding you back and free to be the human being you are deep inside.
The fourth step Reinventing myself is about choosing to live your life according to the person you actually are and determine your (new) beliefs and (new) thoughts. It’s about choosing to honor your values, honor yourself rather than living a life because of other people’s projection, education, fears or limited beliefs.
The fifth step Planning is about defining the goal you want to achieve, the structure to support you and set-up key actions to achieve it. The sixth step, Support is the phase where the coach supports you, in case of ups and downs or difficulties along the way, to reach the objective.
The last step is the Celebration, is the moment of joy where you realize your learning, your accomplishments and celebrate your achievements.
