“Strategically working and partnering with the transitioning YOU; to transform YOU to where your dreams, desires and highest human potential are.

Guiding YOU towards the place where you can confidentially unleash and reveal the True, Authentic YOU!”
~ Patricia Foster

WHY CHOOSE TRANSITIONAL AND TRANSFORMATIONAL COACHING?

For many, life can be one, long path of huge transitions, such as:

Child birth or child rearing,

Finding a new school for your child/children

Studying or exams

Transition from graduate to successfully employed

A change in job or career

Relocating yourself or family to another country or city

The journey you took after redundancy

From single, to engaged to being married

Relationship changes, separation or divorce

Major illness, injury or surgery – yourself or a loved

Changes in your financial circumstances and all that entails

Dealing with life after bereavement

A journey of the mind; moving from limiting beliefs, to positive self talk and higher self-esteem

There may be many obstacles – mental and emotional – which also land along this path. The transitioning process can be arduous and draining, time consuming, eroding your self esteem at the same time.

Coaching helps you explore the inner tools, actions and solutions needed to journey through your transition.
Consequently, you will unlock the ability to transform your thinking and self belief.

The Transformation process will include helping you to identify and establish your ultimate dreams, goals and desires, then Transform you towards your personal success and highest potential through your behaviours, actions and belief systems.

MY SUPPORT FOR YOU

My aim is to guide, amongst many, Women, Girls, Sensitive Children and Creative Practitioners to ease your transitioning, helping you receive clarity of thought about what your goals are, to create positive, highly effective habits and facilitate your transformation.

Happy National Poetry Day 2014 – From Sable Litmag Poet In Residence Patricia Foster

IMG_1020.JPG

“National Poetry Day is a great opportunity for appreciators – from the classical and traditional word, the melancholic and lyrical word, to the contemporary, rapped and spoken word – to celebrate and indulge in a magnificent and efficacious art form.”

National Poetry Day Quote – by Patricia Foster

What does poetry mean to you? National Poetry Day is a very important day in the UK poetry and literature calendar. Celebrated on the first Thursday in October, poets, poetry organisations, schools, community groups, poetry supporters and poetry lovers alike acknowledge the art form. A day in recognition of poetry’s prominence, as well as its relevance in our ever changing society.

The theme for National Poetry Day 2014 is ‘Remember’

How many ‘remember’ themed or inspired poems can you think of?
