If you’re sober curious, considering changing your relationship with alcohol, or in the early stages of quitting alcohol, working with a sober coach can be a transformative experience.

If you’ve listened to the Alcohol Free Life podcast, you will know that my ONLY regret is not quitting sooner, and I so wish I’d come across someone who could support me and cheer me on through those early stages.  I did at one point hire a life coach, and it was helpful, but that coach had no personal experience in quitting alcohol, and just couldn’t quite grasp that I was not at rock bottom, yet I was caught in the alcohol trap.  As you will have heard me say, I also tentatively asked for help from therapists, GP’s and even energy healers, but the only response seemed to be:.. ‘You seem fine…try having an alcohol free day’!

A Sober Club Accredited Sober Coach can make all the difference! – Here’s why you might want to work with a Sober Club accredited sober coach and how it can help you on your journey.

Why Work with Janey or with a Sober Coach trained by Janey Lee Grace?

The Sober Club Accredited coach training is for those who have had their own experience of drinking more than they want to.  Everyone who has completed the programme has found themselves in some way caught in the alcohol trap.  Many have identified as a ‘Grey area drinker#, a term coined by Jolene Park to refer to those – not at rock bottom, but wanting to change their relationship with alcohol.  The fact that your coach has been through a similar journey and got free, means you are working with someone who ‘gets it’.  They have been there, done it and got the T Shirt!  

  1. Personalized Support and Guidance

A sober coach provides tailored support to help you navigate your sober journey. Unlike general advice from friends or family, a sober coach offers professional, individualized guidance. They partner with you to create a plan that fits your unique needs and lifestyle, ensuring you has the tools and strategies to succeed.  Sober coaches trained with Janey Lee Grace work with the ‘Wellbeing through sobriety’ approach, and help you focus on the holistic picture.

  1. Accountability

One of the biggest challenges in changing your relationship with alcohol is staying committed to your goals. A sober coach holds you accountable, helping you stay on track and encouraging you during difficult times. This accountability is crucial for maintaining long-term sobriety.

  1. Emotional and Mental Well-being

Changing your relationship with alcohol isn’t just about not drinking; it’s about improving your overall well-being. A  Sober Club accredited sober coach helps you address underlying issues, manage stress, ensure that your nutrition will support your recovery, inspire you to develop a healthier mindset. This holistic approach ensures that you’re not just sober but thriving. Its a totally non judgemental approach and we focus on positive sobriety.

  1. Building a Life You Love

How Sober Coaching Can Help You

  1. Breaking Free from Fear and Shame

Many people who struggle with alcohol experience fear and shame. A sober coach provides a non-judgmental space where you can explore these emotions, understand their root causes, and develop healthier coping mechanisms.

  1. Enhancing Self-Awareness

Self-awareness is key to personal growth. A sober coach helps you become more self-aware, recognizing patterns in your behaviour and thoughts that may have led to unhealthy drinking habits. This insight is crucial for making lasting changes.

  1. Creating Sustainable Habits

Sober coaching is about so more than just quitting alcohol; it’s about creating sustainable habits that support your overall well-being. Your coach will guide you in developing new routines that enhance your physical, mental, and emotional health.

Tips for a Sober Self-Care Toolkit

As you embark on your journey to sobriety, having a sober self-care toolkit can make a significant difference. Here are some tips to get you started:

  1. Prioritize Nutrition and Hydration

  1. Practice Mindfulness and Meditation

Mindfulness and meditation can help you manage stress, reduce anxiety, and stay present. Set aside time each day for meditation or mindfulness practices to enhance your mental clarity and emotional resilience.

  1. Engage in Physical Activity

Regular physical activity is a powerful tool for maintaining sobriety. Find an exercise routine you enjoy, whether it’s yoga, running, swimming, or walking (getting out into nature always helps!). Physical activity can boost your mood, increase energy levels, and improve overall health.

  1. Establish a Support Network
