Change is a right bastard, isn’t it?

Because chances are, you know you need to change something-—even if it’s just the pair of yoga pants you’ve been wearing for six days straight. But where the heck are you supposed to start? Should you prioritise the changes you want to make? How do you do that? Can you do it? Will it stick this time? Can you fit it into your already crammed schedule? Is it worth it? Are you worth it? IS ANYTHING WORTH IT?!

And that’s how you end up huddled in the corner of your kitchen, shoving dry fistfuls of Coco Pops into your mouth, and having a nice cry.

Overwhelm is a real thing. (Actually, it’s the very thing that makes you start something new and quit after two weeks.) But there are ways to work around the stress, implement a surefire way to take charge of that change, and finally step away from the gin.

Because you have that aching feeling in your gut that you want to do something with your life—and that dang clock is ticking and ticking and ticking—but you go around and around, not sure what the hell to do.

Because you’ve wanted to change, but haven’t known how to do it. So instead you do nothing, marathoning 17 episodes of Breaking Bad on Netflix and eating 3/4 of a pepperoni pizza, because fuck it. Fuck it all. You’ll start it on Monday in the month of Nevuary.

And because you’re tired of feeling busy with stuff that doesn’t actually matter to you. The fogginess is taking over. You feel flakey, and farty and flat.

But you’re done getting in your own way.

(After all, if they gave out awards for cockblocking yourself, you’re pretty sure there’d be a 1st place trophy on your shelf.)

You have all the potential in the world. To make an impact. To feel electrifyingly alive. To be the very curiosity that killed the cat. Picture it: Bold! Calm! Energised! Excited!*

*Disclaimer: I’m not just blowing pleasant puffs of potpourri-scented air up your bum, here.

And I’m going to help you realise it, no matter where in the world you are.

Your life is about to change.

GET OUT OF YOUR OWN WAY

Here’s what others are shouting from the rooftops:

Liz gave me not only the confidence to take charge and make decisions, but also the understanding of why I had been avoiding those decisions. She is brilliant at asking questions that make you sit up and take a good long hard look at yourself.

What will I now do differently? Stop making excuses and wasting time waiting! To quote Axl Rose, “Get in the ring mutha f***er!” Thank you Liz! I’ll recommend the course to everyone!

Taking part in the course has definitely resulted in a change in my life. I have learned that it is possible to control and influence my thoughts and feelings, rather than them controlling and influencing me, which is the very thing that I had hoped to achieve. This has been something of a revelation because for a long time I have simply accepted unhelpful beliefs about myself.

Your calls have given me a firm kick up the arse to realise that life is short and I want more. I want to be happy, and I want to have fulfilment and meaning in my life. Going through a process to realise not only what that is, but what it may look like a year on, is both revolutionary to me and hugely powerful. I’m already taking steps towards what I now know I want more of in my life, and I feel lighter and more in power and exhilarated by that.

How does it all work?

You’ll dial into a free Skype group call and listen in. There’ll be theory. And questions. And writing prompts. You don’t have to say a word—unless you want to. At the end of each call, there’ll be time to ask questions. I’ll bring years of experience of working with people who want to bumble less and do more. I know what it’s like to feel stuck and frustrated and apathetic. Because I’ve been there. There’s no judging. No woo-woo talk or weird and questionable hippy stuff. It’s all about looking into your brain, exploring what holds you back most, and figure out why the heck you don’t do the things that matter most to you.

When does it start?

Saturday 25th February at 10am GMT. Each session will be 70 minutes long, so plan to get comfy. (Tea and biscuits highly encouraged.)

How much does it cost?

2 monthly payments of £130.00 or £215.00 in full.

What’s included in the price?

6x weekly 70-minute group calls via Skype.

After session 3, you’ll also receive a 60-minute one-to-one coaching session with me. We’ll work with what you’ve got and make changes that’ll put you back in charge of your life.

What does the course cover?

Each session will march to the beat of what the group needs, but we’ll most definitely cover the following:

What do you need? More time. A night of interrupted sleep. To ask for help. In this session, we’ll look at what you need to best function in your life, starting with the bare-assed basics. (This does not involve actual nakedness, by the way).

Shift! The end of your rope is a really shitty place to be. We’ll break our way through whatever mental block is keeping you from being the own damn boss of your life. As a bonus, we’ll also make that constant, nagging negative voice in your head pipe the hell down.

Who are you, really? By introducing you to yourself again (totally feel free to bust out a secret handshake), you’ll learn why you think the things that you do and uncover exactly how your thoughts, feelings and ideas about the world are getting in your way and holding you back. Also: Feel calmer: Learn how to be more accepting about people and situations, instead of over-analysing and getting caught up in drama-rama all the time.

Looking ahead: What decision will you be glad you made a year from now—besides asking for extra whipped cream on your latte (obviously)? What’s holding you back from making that decision? What is your future self begging you to do?

What do you actually want from your life? A new job. More meaning. To feel less frazzled. A side business. To be really good at juggling. (No judgement here.). We’ll  dig up to our elbows into what will make your life feel a hundred times better—so that you feel less ARGHHHH and more AHHHHHHH.

Get going: You may as well have sprouted roots for how long you’ve been stuck in the same stupid place. When the distance between where you’re standing standing now and where want to go is roughly eleventy billion miles, make time for change. We’ll work on some go-fucking-get-’em habit fixes that’ll shift you closer to your end game.

Each week, you’ll also be sent an audio recording of the past session, as well as in-between session work, such as an audio to listen to or some extra questions to think about.

I can’t make every call, is this ok?

Yes! The audio recording of each call can be downloaded. That way, you can listen to it when you can.

I’m a total technophobe! How does Skype work?

Fear not, my technophobe friend. Most people have the same worry, and luckily, Skype is very simple to use, and best of all, it’s FREE! If you already have a Skype account, this article here is really useful and easy to follow, especially if you’re a bit rusty. If you don’t have a Skype account, or you’re wondering what the bugger Skype even is, have a read through this article. You can also email me (hello@lizgoodchld.co.uk) and I can walk you through everything.

About your coach

life coach liz goodchild

I’ve been a certified coach since 2012, running a full-time coaching practice via Skype from my lovely home office in Germany. I’ve worked with hundreds of people over this time, from all walks of life, helping them to make changes in their lives and understand themselves more. I believe wholeheartedly in coaching, and I feel very lucky to work with people who want to feel calmer, excited, confident and fulfilled in life, and are ready to make it happen. I get frustrated that we live in a world where asking for help and reaching out for support, or admitting we haven’t got it all figured out, is seen as weak or self-indulgent or ‘a bit weird’, when in fact, I know the exact opposite to be true, and it’s this belief that informs the foundation of my writing and coaching approach. I’m honest and say it as it is. With kindness and a dash of kick-up-the-ass.

When I’m not coaching, I find myself signing up for physical challenges such as 5-mile lake swims despite having an all-out fear of open water, meditating for 10 minutes a day, learning German, making my son laugh and researching how to look after goats (because I want a pet goat). I love poetry by Mary Oliver and lip-sync rapping to Eminem. I am a complete introvert. Small talk and parties make my head hurt and yet I love public speaking and hosting workshops. I’m scared of birds. Especially big, dead ones. I’m scared of a lot of things, in fact. And yet, I’ve taught myself, and continue to teach myself, that the only way through is to act in spite of my fears. To move forward when I’m the most uncertain and scared. To challenge myself to do the things the voice in my head tells me I can’t. This is why I am a good coach. I am really familiar with the hurdles that my clients come up against—because I’ve been there myself—and so I teach what I know from a place of deep personal experience and understanding.
