A Pink Doc Martin – a story of self esteem.

What a beautiful pink Doc.  But what’s its significance?  It’s actually symbolic.!


This is the story of a coaching journey that started with a request for help with weight loss and ended happily ever after with a pink Doc Martin boot.

” I want to look Zoesque in the new dress I’ve bought”   Zoesque was the term used to describe looking great and slim.  My client “J” quickly settled on an improved eating regime of her choice and we worked together on motivational issues surrounding it.

By session 3, J was beginning to work out that this wasn’t about weight loss at all, however it was more about feeling better about herself and the emphasis in future sessions switched to focus on confidence techniques.  Whilst J lost a couple of pounds, what was much more important was that she’d grown as a person, found who she really was and decided that getting into the skimpy little dress didn’t matter.  It didn’t matter because J didn’t need to fit into the skimpy dress to look and feel good and skimpy little dresses weren’t really her.  Those pink Doc Martins are about 20 years old, but represent the real J.  A  J that  feels very comfortable with herself and knows that she looks damn good!

It just goes to show that you can’t plan a coaching journey, its a road that can lead anywhere.

What destination will your coaching train take you to?
