Mildura Weekly : Friday December 5 2014 Vol 9 No 5
26 FEATURE MILDURA WEEKLY FRIDAY, DECEMBER 5, 2014 Principal and life coach Di Povey has clients across our region, around the country and abroad too, including America, Canada and the United Kingdom. So what is she doing, and how is she doing it? “Life coaching,” Di explains, “is a dynamic and effective approach to traditional forms of counselling. “It meets the client exactly where they ‘are,’ and endeavours to build on their own strengths to create and implement personally- tailored strategies to manage and improve whatever life situations they are confronted with.” Di says changes can be fast and inspiring. “Clients grow in confidence as they realise that the smallest of changes can have the most dramatic results, breaking up the ‘log jam’ of obstacles in life,” Di says. Lighthouse Life Coaching specialises in relationship dynamics, confidence-building, and living with depression. It also teaches useful techniques for handling all major changes in, and the stresses of, everyday life. “I believe that life coaching provides another option in the spectrum of health and lifestyle services, especially to those living in rural and remote communities such as Mildura and environs.” So how does Di work with her growing client list? Obviously face-to-face, but also by using modern technology – by telephone, Skype and email. “Skype, telephone and email counselling overcome the tyranny of distance, and also add a welcome dimension of privacy... especially for clients who don’t relish running into their next door neighbours in the waiting room for example!” Di spent many years of teaching, and working in crafts and textiles, in Mildura before opting for “a total change of pace in July 2013” to establish her online coaching business. “I had trained and worked as a volunteer Crisis Counsellor in the 1980s, and refreshed my coaching skills with an Australian Life Coaching Academy in 2004,” Di explained. “Inspired by the effectiveness of the technique of an American coach trainer, I completed another training course with her last year, and as a Certified Coach, I am now able to offer this technique here in my own country, and in my home town.” Di says one of the advantages of working as a sole practitioner is that she is able to guarantee a confidential, and highly personalised service.
