Penny Norman, New Insights Certified ELITE Life Coach

My Background:

I began my career as a medical technologist specialising in the field of biochemistry.  From there I moved into sales and was employed as a medical representative.  I was blessed with two beautiful daughters in the mid-80’s, and worked part time for my husband’s company while they were growing up.  My passion has always been to help those who are hurting.

I applied to SADAG (the SA Depression and Anxiety Group) to work voluntarily as a telephone counsellor and did so for three years.  I then did a counselling course and worked as a Christian lay counsellor for 4 years.  I made the decision to study life coaching as it sounded like it was exactly what my clients needed to move forward, having begun their journey of recovery.  I was delighted with the course content and experienced incredible personal growth as I journeyed through it.  Now, as a New Insights certified ELITE life coach (with advanced coach training), I can’t wait to pass on all that I have learnt to prospective clients like you!

I have been through some really dark and challenging times in my life during which I have sought the assistance of professionals.   They helped me immeasurably and gave me great ideas as to how I could deal with certain situations.  Nevertheless, somehow, though I could see the sense in what they were saying, I was simply incapable of doing as they had suggested. I was desperate for some tools that would help me bring about the change I so eagerly desired.

Happily I discovered that Life coaching does just that!  It provides one with scientifically tested tools and techniques that really work to bring about lasting change.

Gift of Life Coaching philosophy:

Life is a gift, and we should live every day as a thank you note.  Gratitude is key.  I believe that we can: “Be transformed by the renewing of our minds”.  If you can change your thinking, you can change your experience of life.  Through the techniques that coaching offers, you can begin to live the abundant life we were all intended to live.

If you are a victim of abuse, narcissistic or otherwise, continually being subjected to soul-destroying behaviour, you made need to ask yourself the most important question “Am I happy in this relationship?  Am I safe in this relationship?  Is it building me up or breaking me down? Is it making me physically sick?” The longer one endures abuse, the more it affects your health and one can become dreadfully ill and experience anxiety and depression, unless you are able to put a stop to it, or remove yourself. If you are being physically abused, I would encourage you to take the bold step of ending the relationship and leaving the toxic environment.  If your partner (or whomever it is who is abusing you) is in fact a narcissist, they rarely, if ever, change their behaviour.  Leaving would be your first step toward healing from the trauma you’ve been subjected to.

Next, we would work out an action plan to assist you to move forward – which is where coaching is so beneficial.  It is a very challenging journey, but the benefits of being free from abuse far outweigh the difficulties you have to contend with.

There is HOPE and LIFE after abuse.  If you have already taken the incredibly courageous step of leaving a narcissist, we can work together towards bringing about your healing and wholeness (it’s very difficult to make sense of any of it, and to maintain No Contact which is the recommended way to go).  Whether you decide to stay in the relationship – sometimes you simply have no choice – or to leave, coaching will help you immeasurably.

You are the only one responsible for your happiness.  Now is the time to practice self-care, to love and take care of yourself instead of others.  You are worthy, good enough and loveable.  Believe it! You needn’t live life feeling trapped, miserable and isolated.  Remember, you have freedom of CHOICE! You are capable of making good decisions.  Become empowered through the coaching process.  Learn techniques to cope if you choose to stay, or make the decision to leave and embrace the possibility of freedom and real joy.

I would consider it an absolute privilege to walk alongside you whichever choice you make!
