Rediscovering the Authentic Self Through Life Coaching

Posted by Ravynn Rohner on 1/30/17 10:00 AM

Niki Meadows was at a point in her life that she knew she no longer wanted to climb the corporate ladder. She wanted to step into work that fulfilled her so she could use her talents and gifts. “I felt drawn to life coaching even though I didn't know exactly what it was. I did some online research and the more I discovered the more my heart raced. After being disappointed with the program at another facility, I decided to pursue another option. I knew SWIHA was a match for me after a phone conversation with an admissions advisor. I enrolled for the upcoming session and have been coaching ever since I completed the course this past summer.” Niki-Meadows-Life-coach-Swiha.jpg

Niki values her intuition the most, as a tool within her coaching sessions, however she also feels that the power of holding space is just as important. As far as worksheets go, she loves working with Less Is More, which she describes as the ‘drawing out and drilling down’ tool. “There is such magic that comes from utilizing the principle of this tool. Its purpose is to ask questions that don't steer the client in any specific direction and ensure the coach follows where the answers lead. This is what taught me the strength of holding space.”

Niki considers herself a worthy ambassador who helps women find the power of ‘I am more than enough’ within themselves. “I'm currently attracting clients who have lost their sense of self-identity and are looking to discover who they are so they can live a life of purpose and fulfillment.”   

She finds that many of her clients struggle with a sense of guilt of taking care of themselves and their needs. This puts it into perspective-

It’s self-full to be first, to be as good as possible to you. To take care of you, keep you whole and healthy. That doesn’t mean you disregard everything and everyone. But you want to come with your cup full. You know:

‘My cup runneth over.’ What comes out of the cup is for y’all. What’s in the cup is mine. But I’ve got to keep my cup full." –Iyanla Vanzant

Witnessing the impact sessions have on clients is what Niki finds most rewarding, and each session is a confirmation that she is fulfilling her life's purpose. “It's amazing to be fulfilled by the work you do, and I'm grateful to know what that feels like! I am also grateful for SWIHA and the provisions the school made my giving me the foundation I needed to pursue a heart-centered business with confidence.”
