What have you gained from coaching?
Emotional support, practical advice, confidence and focus.
How can you imagine your life improving from having done these sessions?
Confidence in facing the future with a deeper sense of my own self-worth, which will translate into choices motivated by positive feelings and inner strength, choices that will foster happiness, value and satisfaction in work to come.
What have the challenges been for you in being coached? 
Fear of exposure, fear of facing difficult thoughts and feelings about who I am and what I am worth ‘out there’ in the world. Fear of facing the reality of low energy and how that may continue to impact upon my ability to live, work and play.
How do you see your coach’s strengths? 
Intelligent compassion, enthusiasm and excitement while investigating my strengths, celebrating my achievements and mirroring my fears with a practical eye on how I might view them in a different way. Humour and honesty, a willingness to share her own vulnerabilities and elements of her own journey thru life. A fierce but fun-loving perspective that is infectious and inspiring.
What is the single most important thing that made this journey worthwhile for you?
The message that I am good enough, and that the future will be alright.
Any other comments you want to make?

Just to communicate gratitude to Libby for the energetic support and intelligent, incisive, courageous help she has given me. Looking forward to more coaching in 6-12 months.

About Simon’s journey, boundaries, sensitivity and energy

Simon is likely to be awarded his PhD in Literature from Cambridge University early 2018.  A snap shot or his remarkable journey here. We are all so proud of him. ME / Chronic Fatigue is estimated to affect 250,000 in Britain alone and millions worldwide. There is far more research, understanding and support needed. I coach an increasing number of clients with ME / Chronic Fatigue and am confident working with this condition, among others.

Often some of the most high potential people are the most sensitive. We have more data coming in to be processed and need to reduce input and maximise processing time in order not to become overwhelmed or exhausted. We also need to learn to filter. Restoring personal boundaries is essential, and realising that just because full-time, mainstream “job jobs” may or may not suit us, doesn’t mean we are not valuable and able to create a full life that works and contributes to society in our own unique ways, often in more interesting ways than we might feel forced to pursue.

The work of Dabrowski is very helpful in this space. Some clients value this book, It’s been a total lifesaver for me in understanding how to harness my own energy and value myself, differences and all.
