"Follow Your Bliss" welcomes clients for career coaching and/or
life coaching to be coached in person or by distance.
Consultations are held in Bendigo or other towns in Central Victoria.
Fees are paid at the completion of each session.
Consultations are held
by phone or e-mail and fees are paid by cheque or direct credit.
At the outset, let’s determine the
difference between coaching and counselling. Counselling assumes a problem;
coaching assumes an outcome. In discovering our perfect work, it is sometimes
necessary to come from both angles. People want career counselling and
coaching because they feel 'stuck'. Perhaps they’re unhappy in their work
or perhaps they’re wanting to make a difference. With work being such a
huge part of your life, it is now recognised how important it is to love what you do. Through a four hour process
– either four 1 hour sessions, or two 2 hour sessions, we work individually
with clients to discover the work where the client’s skills, knowledge, values,
interests and personality come together. This process is achieved through
discussions, exercises at the coaching sessions and between
consultations, through a personality profile and referrals to
people who are in the field of the chosen work.
By changing people’s perceptions and approach to the way
work should be, to what we want it to be, whole new horizons open up. Changing
careers is an exciting time, but it can also be stressful, depending on the
reason for the change. Sometimes change has been forced upon the individual, through health issues or redundancy. Sometimes they’ve recognised that they’ll
never be happy in the work that they’re doing. “Follow Your Bliss” has a client
base ranging in ages from 16 to 66. Some people know where they want to go,
but don’t know how to get there. Others don’t know where they want to go,
and know that it's not where they are and, of course, anything in-between.
This inspiring process results in (1) enhanced self
awareness, (2) clarity about life purpose (3) setting clear career goals and (4)
increased ability to manage their own career.
Career self management is a survival tool in today’s
workplace. It is not an optional extra. Overall betterment of the
client’s quality of life is a by-product of addressing those other four issues.
Enjoying your work has a positive impact on health, relationships, confidence -
your overall happiness.
In working with "Follow Your Bliss", you have the
opportunity to explore career options and directions in a beautiful,
creative, relaxed environment with plentiful natural light and gentle music
whilst enjoying a cup of freshly brewed tea or coffee.

Personal, professional coaching results
in increased self confidence, increased self awareness and increased ability to reach
goals. Larrie Winzar, Principal Coach & Consultant has been coaching individuals for
many years and
has the 'runs on the board' in relation to personal and professional coaching
The client is always in charge. We facilitate the client setting
goals and outcomes that reflect their dreams and which will reflect the ongoing purpose for
their lives. Life coaching can be either in person, e-mail or by
phone. After each session, clients set tasks or projects to complete by the
next session. By taking one small step at a
time, larger goals are reached; dreams fulfilled.
Personal and professional coaching can be
for a particular area of life or on a range of areas. In a
workplace, the issue could be:
time & energy management
On a personal basis, examples are
health & vitality
“Now that I am “unstuck”, it is amazing
how I was able to operate in “stuck” mode. The shift through coaching
has opened the freedom to allow me to achieve my bliss which is a
balanced life style." - 41 year old mum & student
years, I have lived a life I thought was nothing special. Two
years in Year 9 – teachers who gave up and pushed me aside. So
called friends who told me what I could not do when they did not even
know if I could or not. Success has never been
strong with me even though it has been staring me in the face for
years. Since meeting you I have opened myself up to more
opportunities than I ever would have. Meeting you has been a
breath of fresh air. I am now a go getter – not a wait and see person.
I CAN; I WILL” -
42 year old male in manufacturing
