Life Coaching

What is Life Coaching?

Life coaching aims to help people remove the blocks that are preventing them from living their most authentic lives. Ultimately, individuals need to be in a state of congruence where what they think, do and say are in alignment. When life feels “off-centre” it is often because we are not in integrity with one or more aspects of our lives. Life coaching is about facilitating a process of growth so that the individual can learn the tools to live their best life.

What does a life coach do?

A life coach facilitates a process of growth by enabling the individual to make decisions which will empower them and help them to achieve the goals they have set for themselves. A coach also acts as a sounding board and holding space whereby the individual is able to reach their own conclusions about how to change.

What will life coaching accomplish?

Live coaching brings an individual into integrity so that they are able to live a life which is aligned to their highest values. Life coaching can be directive or non-directive depending on the specific needs of the individual. It’s about formulating a strategy that will set the person on a path towards fulfilment.

What makes Anya O’Hagan’s approach to life coaching so unique?

Anya believes that each individual is born with a specific purpose. When they realise this purpose, they are able to catapult into a life which is exponentially greater than the one they are currently living.

We are all born with innate gifts, which, once discovered can propel us into a destiny we have always dreamed of.

 ‘And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.’ – Anais Nin

Introduction to Anyas life coaching journey.

Fanning the spirit of my dreams was an unquenchable desire to find out more, and, at the age of 12, I would sit reading and writing for hours, spellbound by the wisdom, philosophical insights and literary brilliance of the great minds of history. In particular, such writers as Emerson, Jung, Tennyson, Blake and the Dalai Lama reeled me irresistibly into their intellectual domains.

Ultimately, my fascination with other people’s stories and voices threw me deep into the heart of English literature and philosophy, which was part of the reason I chose English as my second major for my undergraduate degree. My first love, Psychology is where it all began as it reaffirmed my fascination with the stories of others and made me ask questions about how we can take the time we have been given to live our best lives.

In 2012, I graduated as a Registered Psychologist and so began my journey into facilitating the growthful experiences of others.

This above all: to thine own self be true – Hamlet
