A Personal Life Coach is someone who is qualified to support, encourage, challenge and motivate you to achieve your goals. A coach is a good active listener that can pick
up from your voice what you are really thinking and will facilitate you to take actions to move yourself towards your goals. They will celebrate your successes, help you discover how to overcome obstacles, identify your strengths and weaknesses, and enable you to move forward at a far greater pace than you could achieve on your own, with the ultimate aim of you achieving your goals and maximizing your potential.
Life and Career Coaching works because it focuses you on exactly what you want to achieve and gets you there faster. We go through life constantly busy ‘doing things’, but very rarely do we stop and consider our future, and where we want to be. By using a Life Coach you are able to do just that, with the aid of a coach who is 100% dedicated to you and your future. They will listen, encourage, support and motivate you. The Life Coach is able to keep you focussed and, through their experience and expertise, you will be able to identify options available to you, that you may not have ever considered.
From my experience every type of individual will come to me for coaching. The only traits these people have in common is the desire to change part of their life so they are happier, and the realization that they will stay focused and get there quicker with the support of a coach.
During each session we will recap on the actions set and achieved from the last session and look at general progress and successes. We will then set a ‘session goals’ to clearly set out what you want to achieve by the end of the program. We then explore where you are at the moment with that particular goal; what you have tried; what has worked and any obstacles you have come across along the way. We then explore all the possible options in achieving that goal, using lots of techniques to really extract options that you have never thought of before. Lastly and most importantly we look at what actions you want to set yourself from the list of options to achieve that session’s goal.
GNT SLYR Coaching sessions vary in length based on the package you purchased. These sessions can be weekly or monthly, whatever suits your life and the speed at which you can take actions to achieve your goals.
This depends on what you want to achieve with your coaching. Most people come to a Personal Coach with a life changing goal in mind. In order to achieve this we look at smaller goals, that need to be achieved each session, to move you closer to your overall goal. For some people this may take as little as 6 sessions and for others it will be more. It is a very personal decision based on your individual goal.
In the majority of cases the coaching will take place virtually, through a third-party application. This has proven to be the most convenient way for individuals to fit coaching into their busy lives. Face to face coaching is available, to those in the South Florida area, if they prefer this option.
Coaching costs about the same amount of money as seeing any health professional. Sessions prices are as low as $50 for a 30 minute session and increase based on the type and length of the session you choose.
To get the best from Life Coaching, you need have a positive attitude towards the achievement of your goal. You need to be totally open, trusting and honest within the coaching relationship. You need to have the time and commitment to complete the actions that you will set yourself at the end of each session. These actions are what will move you closer to your overall goal. Ultimately your level of commitment will directly influence the speed and extent to which your goals will be realised. To help you with all of this, the coach provides boundless motivation, support and encouragement within a confidential and non-judgemental environment.
Yes. A life coaching agreement is a good way to help our clients feel that they will get a quality service, but also to get commitment from them, which is essential.

GNT SLRY uses a simple but comprehensive agreement as a good foundation for your life coaching adventure.
The Giant Slayer Coaching Methodology is broken into three phases which are focused on identifying and facing the giants within. Phases four and five are taking all the tools learned in the earlier phases and to develop SMART goals and an Action plans, as described in summary below.
Phase 1 Identify the root cause of the limiting thoughts, actions and beliefs that have caused unproductivity, procrastination and failure to launch. Melia believes that we are very rarely dealing with what’s obvious and apparent. Rather, the situations, experiences and environments we encounter over the course of our lives, teaches us how to respond (positively or negatively) in present situations.
Phase 2 Acknowledge and Uproot the negative anchors that keep us from ascending to the places of promise and purpose we were created to attain.
Phase 3 Discharge the pain, shame, frustration, anger, anxiety and fear associated with the person and/or experience. Once we realize how we’ve carried these emotions and beliefs forward into our present, we can choose to send them back from where they came.
After completing the first three phases of the program, the client will be ready to Phase 4 fully explore their goals and partner with their coach to Phase 5 develop a personalized action plan.
