Still want some more?
A favourite song of mine (if you're Australian you'll probably know it) goes, "this life, well it's slipping right through my hands, these days turned out nothing like I had planned". I've felt this way so many times. Sometimes we stop and take stock of our lives and think, "how did I get here?" or "this isn't exactly what I had in mind". Sometimes we can be so busy in life that we don't even notice, until we are so far from where we had planned to be, that we really need to question the path we are on. The song then goes on, "control, well it's slipping right through my hands". Yep, sometimes it feels like you don't have much say in it. But here's where it get's exciting! Whilst the song itself might be a bit sad indeed, it doesn't actually have to be that way. Sure there'll always be situations, curve balls, and other people that are out of your control, but they don't have to control your life or who you are. Learning to take control and live life on your terms is not only rewarding, it is the path to success. It begins with you!

Why I choose to work specifically with Men...
I have a deep interest in authentic living and relationships, and too often I've witnessed the men around me struggling with these things. Similar topics always surface in conversations around partners, sex, identity, expectations, communication, core values and life purpose. Women face these issues as well but we seem to have a more natural support network around us for the most part, and we tend to open up more easily and talk about what's going on for us. Many men have confided in me that they don't really have anyone they can talk to about their most intimate problems. They don't feel safe to talk about these things because they might be judged or shamed, by their partners, other men or even just societal expectations of what it means to be a man. Sometimes, they are also their own harshest critic.
So as I've developed my work into coaching, I'm focusing on the guys, offering a safe and non-judgmental space to learn about themselves, what their needs and wants are and how to translate those things into direction and goals. The role of 'a man' in todays society and in relationships has become somewhat unclear for many, and it continues to change rapidly. More than ever it's important to know who you are and how you want to be in the world. Success in life and relationships comes with a deep sense of fulfilment, which is impossible to attain if you are off your track. So Melissa Kay Life Coaching for Men is there for those who are ready to get back on track and be, do and live a more fulfilling life.
