Life coaching is a co-creative relationship built upon the premise that we can all be more than what we are. It is about discovering and actualizing our full potential. During the process you discover what you want and what has held you back. We will work together to change any limiting beliefs and take the steps to get you where you want to be. Coaching is a holistic process which can cover any aspect of your life.
Another definition of coaching is that it is about helping successful people achieve their goals faster and easier than if they were working on their own. Talk to a successful person and chances are they have worked with or have a coach.
Coaching is not psychotherapy and as a professional coach I do not attempt to provide diagnosis or treatment. We will be talking about where you are NOW not rehashing the past.
A Soft Place to Land
Coaching provides a soft place for you to land while you establish new goals and work toward them with a totally objective partner.
An Investment in Yourself
Hiring a life coach is one of the best investments you will ever make. Coaching is an investment in yourself. While no one needs coaching, anyone can benefit from it if they choose it for themselves. When you enroll with a coach, it shows that you value yourself enough to invest in a process that will help you become who you are more quickly.
Why not just talk to a relative or friend?
Of course you can do that. BUT, coaches work with clients that need and want a non-biased and objective partner who also will hold the client accountable. I will genuinely appreciate, endorse and support you throughout the process.
