About Hands On Life Coaching
Hands On Life Coaching has been a lifetime in the making, and I’m sure it will change and grow as we do.
According to my Mother, it all began when I was three. According to her I was always ‘helping people’. Nearly, forty years later not much has changed. I can see a thread throughout my life that has been leading me to become a Life Coach.
I believe that my own life totally turned around when I went for my first coaching session. Before then I was always trying to wear the crown of ‘people pleaser’, and although my professional career was working with people, I always felt that I could do more or that I had another path to follow.
This led me on a journey of my own self-exploration. I am by no means done yet but what I have learned so far, and what has brought me to starting HOLC is the belief that we are – without any doubt – capable, worthy, whole, brave and complete.
We do face life adversity.
Things are thrown in our path at the unexpected times asking us to cope with the most unimaginable things.
Life is messy, it’s not neat, but it’s not also meant to be a constant uphill struggle.
I am building HOLC on the three foundations, and the work will follow suit and will be how I serve you:
And nothing less.
About Me (Kim)
I’m passionate about many things in life. I could box them into professional and personal, however I do believe that the line between the two is very thin. I believe that people are whole when all areas of their life are meaningfully rich and rewarding to them. I don’t think we can separate out our life into neat little boxes anymore. To be healthy, whole and happy we need to follow our hearts and do the little things that make us feel happy and fulfilled.
When it comes to working with people, I am passionate about helping you be the most authentic, unapologetic, truthful and fulfilled person you know. This may sound selfish, but I also believe that when you are well, those around you are uplifted too.
I believe that we can choose again. No matter what has gone before, we can, if we want it for ourselves to choose a life that is happier. My role is to help you through providing the space, tools, compassion and support to help you see that for yourself.
Hello, for the purpose of Hands On Life Coaching I need you to know that I am qualified Life Coach and I have been working with people in a supporting role for the past 20 years.
I was born and raised in South Africa, after finishing school I trained as and obtained a degree as a Social Worker. After qualifying I relocated to the UK for 10 years. Where I worked with a variety of people. I first began working with young people in Children’s Services and then adults with a wide range of physical and learning needs.
On returning to South Africa in 2009 I was employed as a Social Worker in a physical rehabilitation hospital, supporting the individual and their families to cope with a different way of life than they had previously known.
Now, as well as Life Coaching I work in employee wellness, supporting people through traumatic experiences.
With the range of experience working with many different people, in different settings and with a vast range of needs, I bring to coaching compassion, understanding, empathy, insight and a desire to meet you where you are currently at .
