I’m a nurse and thinking of becoming a coach, will you talk to me about what it's like to be a coach?
I get a number of enquiries from nurses interested in coaching. I know you are thinking ahead into the future about what it might look like to be a self-employed coach. You either are considering starting a coaching course or you have completed one and want to explore a career as a coach.
The place I started was doing this course in UCC however this is one of many courses that you could explore doing in Ireland. My own experience was that I would never have regretted doing this course even if I didn’t end up working in this area.
The life lessons and personal development was well worth it, it was more than a qualification for me. If you didn’t want to go the self employed route then I feel you could absolutely apply the tools from this course to your current work and life.
Then before I took the jump from being a nurse in permanent employment to a self employed coach I went to my own coach to help me navigate making this decision. I would love to support you in gaining clarity on whether you should make this jump and if so what direction to take. I recommend starting with a 3 week package.
