According to ThriveGlobal.com, these are the ‘10-most-stressful-life-events’:
1) Death of a loved one
2) Separation or divorce
3) Getting married
4) Starting a new job
5) Workplace stressors
6) Financial problems
7) Moving to a new home
8) Chronic illness or injury
10) Transitioning to adulthood
Reflecting upon these I find I have experienced nine of the ten. I have sat with close relatives and with strangers as they departed this life and I have lost a loved one and also a friend to suicide.
Although difficult at the time, the lessons those nine events taught me have stood me in good stead and strengthened me.
Further self-reflection reveals an obvious innate desire to be of service and to help others. My thirty years serving the NHS, twenty six as a Registered General Nurse, are testament to the fact I have always been a ‘people person’.
The public speaking I continue to conduct in charitable support of churches across the North East is further evidence of my passion for helping others.
In all my endeavours, I have established a reputation for being friendly, reliable and trustworthy.
These qualities are eminently transferrable to the latest incarnation of my efforts to help others, the transformational coaching of which I am now an exponent.
I am passionate about supporting people to be the best they can be. No matter what is troubling you, I can assure you of confidentiality in delivering the support you require.
Geographical distance is not a barrier to helping you transform your life. If necessary, the help and support I offer can be delivered via online facilities such as ‘Zoom’ or ‘Teams’.
