Individual Happiness Coaching

No matter how hard the past, you can always begin again

Why individual happiness  coaching?

Individual Happiness Coaching is a tailored happiness program which teaches you simple techniques and practical tools to improve the way you think and feel.

We’ve worked with people from many walks of life and what we’ve seen over and over again is people searching for happiness and contentment outside of themselves, rather than within. When you’re constantly looking for happiness elsewhere, it can make life very difficult.

You may not realise it but you already have everything you need, inside you, to feel happy and peaceful. During this individually tailored program, we can show you how to find it and use it.

Is Individual Happiness Coaching for you?

Would you like to feel:

  • less stressed and overwhelmed by the ups and downs of life?
  • more content, optimistic and joyful?
  • calmer, more balanced and able to live in the present moment?
  • more emotionally resilient?
  • more forgiving and compassionate, towards yourself and others?
  • more creative, focused and effective at work or home?
  • like you have a clearer direction in life?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, then our coaching could be for you.

How it works

The Individual Happiness Coaching works as follows:

Step 1: Free 30 minute discovery session
Prior to starting your program, we offer a free 30 minute discovery session. Here we can get to know you, your challenges, hopes and aspirations. This session also includes a pre-coaching preparation questionnaire, where we can clarify the specific goals of your program.

Step 2: Core happiness modules (1.5 hours)
Together, we then work through a series of core modules. These involve:

  1. Understanding what happiness is
  2. Understanding the mind and the heart as key tools for happiness
  3. Meditation
  4. Discovering what’s good in our life

Step 3: Tailored happiness modules (1 hour each)
Following these core modules the next sessions will be tailored to suit your needs. For example a topic structure may include:

  • Improving our thinking
  • Finding a clear direction in life/work
  • Improving relationships
  • Addressing lifestyle issues (such as alcohol dependence, exercise or poor sleep)

I’m not sure if I want to get straight into a program. Can I do a single session?

As part of the program we offer the free 30-minute discovery session (Step 1) during which, you can decide whether this is for you. You can then simply undertake one paid session (Step 2), and decide from there if you want to continue with the tailored happiness modules (Step 3). If this sounds good to you, then get in touch and we can arrange a time for your first session.

I’m not sure if I should do individual happiness coaching or meditation. What would you recommend?

Both of these programs involve meditation. The benefit of doing our free 30-minute discovery session is that we can begin to understand your needs and the tools that will work best for you. If you then decide that you want to use meditation without the support of our other happiness tools, we can guide you through the meditation program. However, if you decide that the additional happiness tools would be of benefit, we can develop a more extensive happiness program that suits you.

I’m not that interested in meditation. Does that mean you’re wrong for me?

Not at all. Not everyone we see is interested in meditation or mindfulness. However, the practice of mindfulness is really just another way of saying being present, curious, self-aware and non-judgmental. The practice of meditation involves relaxing the body, calming the mind, and strengthening the heart. Our programs are designed to fulfil your needs.

I have come to realise through this program that people can change and it starts with me and how I accept them. For me, my biggest problem was around my inability to forgive some key people in my life. Now that I have learnt to do this, my stress levels have been reduced significantly and I can enjoy my life more. Since the program I am now getting on much better and am feeling a lot more positive about things as well. I have gone on to achieve some things that I had dreamt of for many years but was unable to do because of the way I was feeling.

Through the individual happiness coaching I have learnt a lot about how to become happier and I definitely feel better. I have become more grateful, more forgiving, and more present, which has enhanced my happiness. I have also learnt that trying to control others at work can sometimes harm my happiness, so I have learnt to let go more. Ivan also did really well as a coach.
