Ginny McKenna Life Coaching

As a life coach I truly believe that wherever you are seeking success in your life the place to start is within you. Gaining laser sharp insight on who you are and why you do what you do is paramount to creating a life that you not only want but deserve. I love to work with clients from across the world who are passionate, committed and ready to take action to become the person, parent, partner or leader they have always vowed they would be. If you have lost your way its never too late to invest in your own growth; by doing the work and taking committed action, you can start creating the life you have, until now, only dreamed of. Its YOUR life, live it on YOUR terms! My website (www.ginny-life.com) is currently under construction but please feel free to visit my LinkedIn profile for further information: www.linkedin.com/in/ginnymckenna Want to know more about me check out the following link to my podcast appearance as a guest speaker on Things Police See: https://podcasts.google.com/feed/aHR0cHM6Ly90aGluZ3Nwb2xpY2VzZWUubGlic3luLmNvbS9yc3M/episode/NDg5YTUxOTEtNjYwOS00MTA1LTk5YzktYTQwMWQ1YmNhMTg4?ep=14

What do you love most about your job?

That moment when my client makes that breakthrough that has been alluding them, often for years; that realisation that anything is now possible for them.

What inspired you to start your own business?

For more than 23 years I was a police officer a role I loved because I was able to help people at some of the most critical times in their life. But, in recent years due to budget constraints and resourcing issues I realised that there was no longer enough time to be able to spend to make those true human connections and that my role no longer resonated with who I am deep down. So, I took an ICF accredited Diploma in Life Coaching, qualified and found my purpose again. Now, every single day I smile inside and am loving living the life I have created.

Why should our clients choose you?

If you are looking for someone who will stand for you, create a safe, supportive non-judgmental space and hold you accountable then I am the right coach for you. I am a typical no-nonsense northerner whose only purpose is to see you succeed. If that means on occasion I have to challenge you, make no mistake I will. You don't need an admirer telling you what you want to hear; you want the person who pushes you to break free from the challenges, obstacles and constraints that have held you down.

Can you provide your services online or remotely? If so, please add details.

I can provide my services via Zoom, MS Teams or Whatsapp.
I prefer to have the opportunity for us to see each other as I really believe that enhances the client experience.

What changes have you made to keep your customers safe from Covid-19?

I am now running all of my services online until such time as we are no longer restricted.

Life Coaching FAQs

Your professional life coach will be able to advise you on the full range of coaching available and will be able to help you select the best one to suit your needs. They will also be able to answer any questions you may have. Use Bark to get free quotes and find a trusted life coach today.

You can have as many or as few life coaching sessions as you like. Many life coaches operate over the phone or via the internet so the sessions can easily fit around your schedule. Some people hire a life coach once every few months, some people have a session once a week.

Life coaching sessions will typically last up to an hour. Often after an initial assessment, sessions can be conducted over the phone, face to face, over email, via Skype/Zoom and occasionally through instant messaging.

During the session, your life coach will ask you a number of questions, such as what you want to achieve in life, what areas you're unhappy with and where you'd like to see yourself in the future. Although a life coach will work with you, it’s often up to you to challenge or reflect upon certain ideas you have to help you move forward with your life. You will never be forced to make any decisions you don't feel comfortable with and all sessions will be confidential.

Life coaching is focused on your present and your future. Coaching accepts your current reality and looks to improve your outcome moving forward. Life coaches are not health professionals and they do not diagnose you. By contrast, therapy focuses on your past and looks to delve into past actions and patterns. It is analytical but not action-oriented.

Most mainstream health insurance providers do not cover the costs of life coaching because it is not considered a mental health profession in the same way therapists and counsellors are.

Life coaches do not need to have any formal or academic qualifications but you may want to look for life coaches who possess an industry-specific qualification, such as the Life Coaching Diploma or Personal Performance Diploma (PPD).

You may also want to ask for testimonials of their recent work. You could also look at their profile page on Bark, which shows you reviews from past customers who have used their life coaching services.

A life coach is a trained professional who aims to help and guide individuals to make, meet and exceed personal and professional goals. They support clients on a journey to rediscover their own strength and abilities. This can include excelling in the workplace, becoming happy and fulfilled at home, exploring your potential, managing health conditions and achieving life ambitions.

By harnessing techniques based on core psychological principles and intuition, life coaches empower clients and provide a toolkit of teachings to confidently face difficult challenges and overcome emotional barriers.

Life coaches can specialise in one of these particular areas of coaching: career coaching, executive business, group coaching, health and wellbeing, performance management, personal development, relationships, retirement, spiritual and youth coaching.

Rapport is one of the most important parts of life coaching. If you feel uncomfortable with your professional, you are unlikely to gain much from the session. It is advisable to get in contact before you book a session to meet your life coach so you can gauge how comfortable you are in their presence. It is worth talking to a few potential life coaches and ask questions.

Yes! As long as you have a strong internet connection, then your life coach can deliver sessions via an online video chat platform. Alternatively, it can be done over the phone.
