Life coaching – what is it?

What exactly is life coaching?

I totally have huge passion for this part of my job.  I’ve loved helping so many people.   Often they have felt confused about a situation.

Sometimes not motivated.

Very often simply need to thrash out a few ideas.

Business people have needed to be held accountable.

“Louise really helped me when I needed help with a big job decision.  I’m in a high profile position with work and didn’t feel I could air my worries to colleagues. Speaking it all through with Louise helped me make the right decision for my future and I’m really glad she was able to make it clear for me.” Rosie

“I was always so worried to go certain places at certain times.  I knew I was being silly.  But Lou made me realise this is my fear and it’s real to me and I suppose not silly after all.” Barbara

If you find you lie awake at night worrying about things you don’t need to worry about really or the answers keep arguing with themselves inside your head as you drive around each day, maybe Life Coaching if for you.

Showing you how to get motivated is a big step forward. 

Clearing the ‘spaghetti head’ as I call it is another.

Realising that everything doesn’t have to be perfectly in place.  Including you.  You can still make progress.

Answering your lifes purpose.  Your passions.  Making them your dream come true.

There are so many ways in which coaching can help you.  Once you feel clear on your direction there will be no stopping you.  What is stopping you right now?  You may even be able to answer your own issues just by reading this post.

Posts like this have been known to ignite a spark into your decision to make a change.  Why not!

Hair condition – Professional hair products?

Are professional hair products really worth the investment?


To be honest,  YES!



Having a long career in the hairdressing industry I do feel qualified to let you know that the best thing you can do for your hair is invest wisely in the best products you can.


You will find a video below to give you more information but to be honest,  you most likely know what suits your hair all by yourself!  Honestly,  just pay it some attention when you shampoo,  condition and use styling products.  How does it feel?


“Louise please tell me,  does changing your shampoo help?”


I think so!  Not because your hair simply ‘gets used to it’ as people say – although you could call it that if you like.  Rather it’s a case of some shampoo and conditioner contains different ingredients to the next one.  At times this can cause a ‘build up’ which coats the hair shaft.  This is not good.  Imagine trying to put self tan lotion over the top of your moisturizer…..


It won’t work!


Why?  Obvious really – it needs to soak into the skin.  Exactly what conditioner needs to do on your hair.  If there is a build up then ‘no way’ will the conditioner get into the hair shaft to create moisturising  activities!


I’ll make another video for you to show how to create salon beautiful hair at home simply by changing your shampoo techniques – watch this space. 


So professional products not only come with the advice from your salon expert but also the ingredients will be richer, needing less of it which is better in the long run for your pocket,  the environment and of course for your hair.


Lots of us are LOVING long hair right now – along with long dresses which pleases me…….these locks will not get longer if you don’t look after them.  The ends will break off resulting in you saying: “My hair never grows!”

Gaining control of your business – gaining self esteem


You made it!!!!

Fantastic!! Your dreams came true and that inner confidence you gained has given you enough adrenalin to get your business off the ground. Those sleepless nights of crazy ideas and jotting things down
* Asking friends for help
* Finding creative ways of getting help with minimal cost
* Driving round half asleep
* Getting some press coverage
* Painting and decorating (you thought you were a hairdresser?)

And your business is open!!

Woo hoo – congratulations!

Now what?  You have hired the best staff in the business and you have found they know LOTS about thier craft or skill.  Exactly what you wanted! Brilliant.

Problem is, some of the staff may be more skilled than you, some may be older than you, some may sell more products than you.

This, little by little, wears away at your self esteem.  You feel like you lost control. Oh no, how did that happen? What happened to the drive, passion and ambition?  Let me tell you, it’s still there and you still have it in you to be the LEADER you dreamed of being.  You can do this but how?

Decide exactly what it is that makes you feel you have a low self esteem.  Do your staff listen to you?  Do they respect you?  Are you behaving like a leader?
Maybe the problem just lies within you.  Maybe you are questioning yourself.  Are you good enough?

Of course you are good enough.  How you turn it around is a question you can answer within yourself but you need some help sometimes to realise this.  If you walk around like a victim about to be picked over by the vultures who are your staff then guess what? …. they are going to do exactly what you think they will.  The BEST way forward is to physically begin by walking tall,  by COMMANDING respect from the staff,  by being a LEADER.

Find the answer within yourself and decide what is keeping you low, then go ahead and turn it around.

If you feel you would like some further direction on this or need to talk things over with someone who can listen knowingly (I’ve seen it all from previous clients) then go ahead and ask me for some help. louise@stranddesigns.co.uk
