Joyful Genius Coaching

Surrey

Hi, I'm Andrew Horder. I believe we all have not just a right to find joy in our work, but even a duty! That makes my entire life a quest to bring my value to the world from a place of ease and grace and joyfulness - and to help others to do the same ... What gets me out of bed in the morning ... ... ready and raring to go, is my mission to change the way we think about work. It really doesn't have to be that thing we are forced to go and do to earn the money that allows us to follow our passion in our 'real life'. We've been led to believe that in this reality it's only pop stars and footballers that get to do what they are naturally brilliant at, that they absolutely love doing, and they get handsomely paid for - but that's RUBBISH! We can all have it all - and I'm on a mission to show you how! Like so many people, I reached my late thirties feeling "there has to be more to life than this!" - I was earning good money in a good job, driving around the country in my posh car, meeting generally nice people and selling them stuff, but I knew that wasn’t going to be enough for me for very much longer. So I decided that moving up the management ladder was the answer. I signed up for a degree to learn all about how business works, and I worked my socks off for a few years – while studying 10-20hrs a week I also changed jobs three times, each time getting more responsibility. And more pressure. In 2002 I graduated in an amazing experience at Ely Cathedral in front of my very proud family – I had my Masters in Business Administration, my MBA - Yaaay! But inside I was still struggling - in 2003 I was stuck in a job I hated, that was making me physically and mentally ill, where I had no alignment with what my bosses wanted me to do for them – and to clients! I felt that I had no purpose in life – I was just drifting along, dead inside, hoping that somehow it would all come right. Eventually it got so bad that I could hardly eat properly, I was dreading every day in the office, I felt like thumping my boss most of the time. I had to get out of there. So I took redundancy, to get back to a life with a purpose. And I soon found myself back in a similar position – in 2006 the job was better, the boss was a bit less of a bully, I was even driving a nicer car. But I was still floundering, still asking myself “Is this is all there is?” Then, through a friend, I got onto the self-development path – I spent literally tens of thousands of pounds on courses to help me find my place in life – courses about finding my destiny, overcoming the blocks I put in my way, NLP & coaching skills, and even how to put it all together in a sound business structure. And I tried several businesses – working for myself, with partners, and for other people. But somehow it was still not quite coming together – and I found myself losing a couple of big clients, my main business was failing, and I was rapidly running out of money! What Changed? I took a step back, and looked at what I had learned. I re-visited something I had done years before, something that told me the one thing I had been doing all my life, whenever it’s all been going amazingly well. I learned my Core Process – “Encouraging Potential”. And I took it a step further, to understand not only What I do when I’m at my best, but also Why and just as importantly, How I do it best. Afterwards, I remember saying to my mentor something like “Wow! If we could get everybody doing what they are brilliant at, and that they love to do, wouldn’t the world be such better place! Yes, that’s exactly what someone needs to do to get the world out of this mess we’re all in.” And he looked at me and very gently asked: “Why not you?” Gulp!! That’s when I started to truly apply the fundamental principles that I include in all my coaching programmes (or 'adventures' as I prefer to call them!) - and now I’ve never been happier … I get to get up in the morning ready to do what I do best – Encouraging Potential all over the place! In all honesty, it’s not been an easy ride. I’ve made plenty of mistakes along the way, spent silly amounts of money (just ask the financial controller!) on stuff that just didn’t work, or maybe I just didn’t put it into practice. And I lost my way a few times too – lost my focus on the real purpose of my life - using my Joyful Genius. But now I get to spend my time working with exciting and committed individuals, who know they can make a real difference in the world. All they need is a bit of the pragmatic approach to business I picked up on my MBA, and someone to re-ignite their passion for what they do, so they no longer feel they have to hold back from stepping into their own magnificence! They get to discover their Core Process, the What of their brilliance, the work they love to do and can make a great living at. Plus their Core Purpose, the big Why, the thing that gets them out of bed every morning, raring to go, ready to make their difference. And finally their Core Practice – the How, the simple, pragmatic, day-to-day things they can do to make truly living their Joyful Genius just so much easier and more fun!

What do you love most about your job?

I love those moments where a client suddenly sees and steps up to the genius that other people see in them, really steps into their genius, and so gains the courage to step out into the world with it with clarity, congruency and confidence. Helping people go from miserable, frustrated or poor to joyful, fulfilled AND properly rewarded is such a buzz!

What inspired you to start your own business?

After a successful corporate career I wanted to take charge of my own destiny, and to open up possibilities for people who were also unfulfilled in their work. When one of my mentors challenged me to use my Core Process, En-couraging Potential, to change how we think about the world of work, I realised it was time to put my coaching skills and experience to use, and Step Up to being a coach.

Why should our clients choose you?

I use a variety of coaching styles, depending on the client's needs. With some, it's a highly practical approach, and with others it can be much more intuitive - some might even say a bit woo-woo (I do use some energetic and healing modalities, with the clients for whom that will be of service). With some it's "pure coaching", asking questions and allowing you to discover your own answers, with others I draw more on the more 'directive' style from my business coaching and offer specific suggestions. We agree upfront what style will most be of service to you - and I find that often changes as the coaching relationship progresses, always guided by how best you can achieve your objectives. My long-term clients love me - although my aim is always to help you make a positive shift within the first six sessions.

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.
