Welcome to Instar Coaching C.I.C
It has been a while since our last newsletter :) six months to be precise. How has your six months been? I have reflected on the last six months and the first thing I realise is that there were certain things I needed to let go of to maintain my work, life balance. Unfortunately, this newsletter was one of them. It is a pleasure to come back to. There are two people that I am celebrating in this edition. My first ever coaching client, Clair, and my Granddaughter, Freya. Read their wonderful stories of grit, perserverance and achieving their goals. A massive well done to both of you.
As I let go of my paid employment as a dental receptionist I am reflecting on the lessons I have learnt there. The most obvious lesson is 'not taking things personally', I have had a lot of practice, which has enabled me to be authentic and to not be affected by others situations. Our podcast covers both 'not taking things personally' and practice if you would like to find out more. The theme of this newsletter appears to be celebration and letting go which seems quite timely as we come to the end of the year.

Kim's Perspective....
Clair is one of my original coaching clients. In 2015, when I needed clients to practice Life Coaching with, Clair was introduced to me by a mutual friend. Clair had just started her PhD and was interested to find out how life coaching could help her. Clair has experienced various life coaching techniques with me, walking coaching, Wingwave, and positive psychology, online and face to face. I soon became one of Claire’s Phd team. Clair passed her Viva, and finished her PhD. Huge congratulations to you Clair.
Clair's perspective...
I came to meet Kim as I was preparing to start my part-time PhD alongside a full-time job while awaiting the arrival of my first grandchild. My main goals were to manage a healthy balance in life and to build resilience against academic criticism. My PhD journey has been long and problematic with life throwing some brutal curveballs along the way. Kim employed techniques from throughout her career to help guide me through. Kim’s calming influence and breadth of knowledge has made her a vital member of my PhD team. I will be eternally grateful for her role in this phase of my life.

Freya Skye - Representing the UK at Junior Eurovision

Freya Skye has worked so hard to fulfil her dreams. It would be easy to think that someone so young had not been working towards her dreams for that long. The reality is that she has been singing for as long as I can remember, she has attended many classes to learn her craft, and so many auditions before this BIG opportunity. Freya is an inspiration, an example of grit, perserverance, passion and gratitude. And of course her family are filled with pride. Celebrate with us on Friday November 18th 7.30pm Children In Need and Sunday December 11th Junior Eurovision BBC One. Click the button to watch her music video.

Let Go: Awareness and Acceptance

What does the phrase letting go mean to you? Often, when I reflect on my own behaviour patterns alone or with others the issue of letting go will reveal itself. Over many years of personal development simply acknowledging that this was the underlying issue would help me to take a step back, take a different perspective* and release my tight …
