Coronavirus: what I can do to help my community, my family, and YOU






In the week since my last blog post, the world has changed beyond all recognition.


Understandably, there is a lot of fear and anxiety:


  • for our physical health, with the virus;

  • for our wellbeing, with social distancing and self-isolation resulting in a challenges to our mental health

  • and for our financial stability, with people being asked to go on unpaid leave, the threat of businesses going bust, and the world economy in free fall.


So I have been asking myself, what can I do to help?


I am only one person, but there are still things I can do.


In this blog post, I set out what I am doing to help my community, my family, and what I can do to help YOU.



🌟 For YOU


So, what can I do for YOU?


I have a particular skillset which can be of use right now, to help you get through this in the best way possible:


  • I can help with feelings of anxiety and negativity, helping you find your calm and stay positive inside this storm

  • I can help you learn about stress, your particular triggers, and what you can do to improve the way you handle stress

  • I can help you boost your immune system, through the power of the mind-body connection

  • I can help you prioritise, so that in this time of immense change you can work out what's best to do when

  • And once you are ready to start thinking about your future dream career in this changed world, I can help you work out where you want to get to, and how to get there.


Free Resources


In the last few days, I have pulled together FREE RESOURCES on nearly all of these, and will continue to add to them over the coming weeks.


On the "Resources" page on my website, you will find guided visualisations, coaching audios, and links to blog posts or articles that will help.


For example:


  • a free "Find Your Calm" guided visualisation audio

  • a "How to keep calm and positive in a coronavirus world" blog article

  • a free "Stress Diary" to download.


If there are any particular resources that you would find helpful, email me on kirsten@kirstengoodwin.co.uk and I will do my best to help.


And keep checking back, as I will add more over the coming weeks (eg I am planning a "boost your immune system" guided visualisation shortly).





Paid resources


I am offering current and former clients free group coaching to support them through this time.


But I still need to keep my business going, so I also have some paid resources that might help.



  • I am now offering my Power Hours for £97 (down from £250). This is a one hour 1:1 Zoom or Skype call that you can use to get my support for anything: from dealing with the anxiety of this uncertain world, to staying positive, to thinking through your career options. (Email me to arrange a time: kirsten@kirstengoodwin.co.uk.)


  • Finally, there is my Transformational Coaching Programme, which is bespoke 1:1 online coaching. For more information about this, please click here.


If you have any questions, or want to discuss how I can help you, you can arrange a free introductory chat at any time - email me on kirsten@kirstengoodwin.co.uk or book into my calendar here.



🌟 For my family


We are very lucky: with all the travelling we've done, we've spent a lot of time together as a family, just the three of us.


And as my husband is retired, our weekdays are all of us at home together anyway (around school and clubs).


So being in self-isolation is not as hugely different to normal life for us as it would be for some.


But with my daughter being home-schooled by my husband and me for the last week now, it's getting clear to me how life IS different these days.


I've learned a lot about what my daughter needs from me right now.
