So what is Life Coaching anyway?

 

Coaching is all about providing a safe and non-judgemental space where you can be guided to your own truth through active listening, powerful questions and through seeing your situation reflected objectively.

It emerged in the 1980s as a means for personal development and has since become a booming industry with more and more people recognizing it’s value in creating transformation.

I combine mindset coaching, teaching and the principles of spiritual psychology to help you to recognise and shift limiting patterns and access your own inner truth.

Each session is highly individual but is always a collaboration in which I guide you to uncover your values as well as the blocks and limitations that are standing in your way. I will help you to process your emotions and provide practical tools to work through your blocks, so you can make the changes that feel alligned for you.

And now a little something about me.

I’m Lisa Redmond and I help sensitive women to improve their self-esteem and relationships.

I’ve always been a highly sensitive, intuitive person, but for years I struggled without the tools to manage my emotions. I didn’t know how to maintain a sense of self while staying connected to others, so I gave up parts of myself instead. For years I tried to be the ‘good girl’, to do all the right things that I was supposed to do so other people would see my value. At work I would go above and beyond for employers who treated me badly, I would make excuses for the hurtful behaviour of my boyfriends because I was terrified of losing them, my friendships were exhausting because I didn’t know how to speak up for myself and was always afraid that people would find out all the ‘bad’ things about me. Feeling like I was too sensitive for this world caused me to ‘armour up’ just to make it through; cue people-pleasing, performing and chronic over-achieving. Worst of all, none of it got me any closer to the happiness that society promised me.
Instead, I ended up burned out, resentful and disconnected from who I was.

My journey of awakening was a rocky one.

Once I realized that all this was happening for a reason, I took the opportunity to dig deep and unlearn the beliefs that weren’t working, so I could live a life that actually felt true to me.

Over the space of three years I saw different therapists and coaches and developed a deep understanding of my trauma and how to heal it.

I threw myself into researching all things psychology, spirituality and mental health. Beyond that, I started to actually apply it and through lots of trial and error, I found what works.

I knew I had to share what I was learning with others and so I became certified as a Life Coach, Teacher and Practitioner of Neuro Linguistic Programming.

I found work that was more fulfilling and went from toxic relationships to a long term healthy partnership. In fact all of my relationships improved.

I found my way out of the disease to please and started to step into my power – Turns out it was there all along.

I believe that we all have a unique essence and I’m obsessed with helping people break free from their social conditioning so they can get back to theirs. I do this work because I know it’s possible. I know there’s life outside of the hustling, perfecting, pleasing, numbing and isolating. Those patterns are not who you are. They are just what kept you safe.

I want you to feel brave enough to speak your truth

I want you to have the kind of unshakable confidence you thought was reserved for ‘tougher’ people.

I want you to feel completely seen, heard and valued in your relationships.

I want you to believe that your thoughts, opinions, feelings and dreams are just as important as everyone else's, because they are!

Above all I want you to know that it’s possible. If I could do it, so can you.

A few random tidbits about me:

I’m from Ireland but never stay in the same place for too long – as a result I’ve lived in New York, Portugal and Germany. Still trying to decide where’s next.

I’m a complete feather brain and have a terrible memory – except when it comes to song lyrics. I know the words of any song within a few minutes of hearing it.

I've always loved connecting with and helping people. I used to work as an ESL teacher in a language school and I still offer individual tutoring. It's my favourite way to connect with people from all around the world.

I’m constantly singing and dancing, much to the embarrassment of my friends when they take me anywhere.

I’m a complete introvert but can masquerade as an extravert when the mood takes me. I can be the life and soul of the party – as long as the party only lasts 2 hours and I can retreat into my shell afterwards.

ENOUGH ABOUT ME. I WANT TO LEARN MORE ABOUT YOU.

What’s going on in your mind? Are you falling into patterns of people pleasing, overthinking and perfectionism? Do you feel like your relationships could be more fulfilling? Do you know you have a lot to offer but hold yourself back?
