What is Coaching?

What Is Coaching?

Coaching is quickly becoming one of the leading tools that successful people use to live extraordinary lives. Through weekly, biweekly or monthly coaching sessions, my clients identify what is most important to them and align their thoughts, words and actions accordingly.  As your coach, I work with you to identify what you want personally and professionally and support you in achieving a life that you really want and love. 

Having a life you love starts with gaining clarity on what’s most important to you, what you love, what you’re passionate about.  Having this clarity enables more meaningful choices and consistent action moving you closer to your ideal life and days filled with joy, energy and focus.

What makes me unique from other coaches is that I start all of my coaching relationships taking my clients through The Passion Test.  The Passion Test is a simple and profound process which helps you to gain clarity about your own personal passions and purpose (read more). Discovering what makes your heart beat is the beginning of living a passionate purpose-filled life. Your commitment to your life through coaching offers a means for more balance, joy, intimacy, energy, financial abundance, focus and action in every area of your life.

What professional athlete hasn’t used a coach to win?  Tiger Woods is already one of the best, and yet he understands the value that comes from having someone work directly with him, someone to point out things he can’t see, someone to keep encouraging and challenging him to achieve his greatest potential.  That’s who I am for you.  Coaching is like having personal trainer for your life!

What Should You Expect?

As your coach I will:

• Encourage you to set goals that you truly want.

• Ask you to do more than you may have done on your own.

• Help you focus better in order to produce results more quickly.

• Provide you with the tools, support and structure to accomplish more.

 How Is Coaching Different from Therapy or Consulting?

Coaching is not therapy, and approaches the client as whole and complete.  Therapy and counselling go into depth about various issues, usually dealing with the past, and generally results in giving the client answers.  Coaching is more action-oriented and focuses primarily on the present and future.  However, I do use tools such as The Work of Byron Katie, should you choose to use them, which may tap into past events to understand beliefs which may be standing in your way of reaching your goals .  As your coach I enable you to determine your own “answers” through the work done in our coaching partnership.

 Who Works with a Coach?

Entrepreneurs, business owners, professionals and people in transition are some of the people who typically work with a coach.  People who are stuck in jobs they don’t love, or are in jobs they love but aren’t seeing the results, often seek the services of a life coach.  Regardless of their professional endeavor or place in life, all of my clients have one thing in common:  they are all whole and complete and are ready to take the steps necessary to go for the things they really want in their lives!
