In case you hadn’t noticed the life coaching industry is very female centric. I don’t think there would be many people that would say otherwise – because it is in fact – the truth.
This does not mean that it is a bad thing. Far from it. Women are amazing – and I think in particular they make pretty amazing life coaches. And may I say also that they make amazing life coaching clients too.
However I also don’t think that you would find many people in our industry (and even outside it) who would say that more male life coaches who work within the realms of life, career, relationships, sexuality, creativity, purpose, spirituality and so much more, are absolutely needed. And in more plentiful amounts.
More than ever as the individual and collective consciousness of the world is rising, more male life coaches and life coaches who work with men are needed.
It can be easy to forget at times that men have emotional, spiritual, creative, and personal needs that are just as strong and in need of the cheerleading, guidance and powerful communication that happens between a life coach and client, as a woman does. And sometimes, just as a woman can only feel that she can really open her heart and true being to a female life coach, just as it is for a man to a male life coach.
Coaching men I believe is an expert area within our industry and it is an area I will gladly raise my hand to say that I am not an expert in. However the amazing Nic Tovey is, and I’m thrilled to share with you today a very special interview I recently did with Nic that was especially recorded for trainees in the Beautiful You Life Coaching Course. I believe it is so powerful and rich in learning that I wanted to share it with all of you.
This is an interview that discusses Nic’s pathway into life coaching and working exclusively as a male coach with men from his former life in the navy and as an engineer. We discuss the particular needs and experiences of men in life around topics such as violence, emotions, consciousness, healing, relationships and much more. Nic also shares his tips on how, (whether you are a female life coach or male life coach), to best approach life coaching work with men.
This is 80 minutes of raw, powerful, honest and illuminating conversation that every life coach – no matter who you work with – should listen to. Click the image below to listen in.
I would love for you to share your thoughts with me below about how you found the interview with Nic and what thoughts and new insights it may have inspired for you.
Are you a male life coach or know of a great one and want to give yourself or them a shout out below? Please do!
I would also love to hear from you if you have any thoughts and ideas on how we can collectively raise the need for there to be more amazing male life coaches in our field and of course please share this with anyone at all that you think can learn and benefit from it!
