It is my pleasure to introduce Inspiration Activated’s newest team member – Jackie Lenihan.
Jackie is an amazing life coach. She is particularly skilful at creatively providing insights that allow clients to see different perspectives and create breakthroughs in their lives. Anyone who has the privilege of being coached by Jackie will experience her beautiful bubbly personality and sparkling laugh. Jackie is skilful at identifying where clients could improve or consider alternative viewpoints. Clients will appreciate Jackie’s ability to carefully craft a story or example that provides the client with insights to enhance their learning in a kind and gentle manner. One important part of coaching is being genuinely excited for your clients and seeing their amazing potential especially when they don’t. When Jackie coaches she genuinely wants her clients to achieve the life they love. She recently worked with a client facing multiple options, her question “What if you could have it all?” This opened the client’s mind to the amazing possibility that there wasn’t a decision to make after all. Instead the client could choose to do everything they wanted in life. Jackie creates a supportive, enthusiastic and encouraging coaching environment. She makes coaching a lot of fun as well as providing the insights that clients require in order create the changes in their lives. So get ready to open yourself up to the possibilities of having it all when Jackie is your coach!
So read on about Jackie's story to get to know her a bit more. Jackie and I look forward to working together to support our communities with their life's journeys to support people to achieve greater self-awareness, self-acceptance, improved health and increased joy in their lives.
Remember to be compassionate and courageous and you'll hear from me soon
Hi, I'm JACKIE and this is little about my life and how I got to where I am at today.
I am a woman with a strong faith in God. I have spent most of my life caring for and supporting people. As a young person I would find people coming up to me and just wanting to download how they were feeling or just share their troubles. I used to think this wasn’t good thing and so spent a lot of time trying to change this aspect of my personality. But I have found over the years that it doesn’t matter what job I do people are always the priority for me. The best job I ever had was being a Life Guard at the local pool, I was privileged to be able to teach people to swim, children and adults. Teaching adults to swim was really rewarding as generally they had suffered trauma in their childhood and were afraid of the water. Seeing them take steps to get in the water and face their fears was very humbling. They were so brave!
The life guarding job worked well as it would fit in with the school and caring for my children. I have four and I was a solo mother, so this was definitely a gift for me. I have definitely been through a few hurdles in my life and have found that with every situation it has eventually given me strength that I didn’t know I had. I know how hard life can be at times and now want to use these experiences to help others.
I remember after being made redundant from one of my jobs that I was given the opportunity to start a counselling degree, I did manage to do the first year but after that with four school age children and working full time it became logistically impossible to fit everything in. I have now waited another 6 years wondering how this could even be possible, still the dream lives. In 2017 I lived through probably one of the hardest years of my life but through it all everything turned around. I got the opportunity to do Life Coaching training with Robbins Madanas training. This not only helped me work through all the fallout from the year but has given me a compelling future doing the thing I love to do more than anything, working with and helping people.
I’m now looking forward to working for the rest of my life with purpose and passion working alongside Rachael Kingstone the founder of Inspiration Activated helping people to transform their lives.
In health & happiness,
