There are years that ask questions and years that answer.
—Zora Neale Hurston
A personal life coach is someone who is qualified to support, challenge, and motivate you to achieve your goals. A coach will help you discover how to overcome obstacles; identify your strengths and weaknesses, and help you to take actions to quickly move towards your goals.
Coaching is a thought-provoking and creative partnership that inspires clients to maximize their personal and professional potential, often unlocking previously untapped sources of imagination, productivity and leadership.
Life coaching is a collaborative process focused on what you want to achieve. With the aid of a coach who is committed to you and your goals, you’ll be able to enjoy a much happier and healthier life. The life coach will keep you focused and share their experience and expertise.
Life Coaching is not a replacement for mental health and psychological therapy or treatment, it is not designed to treat psychological or mental health conditions. While therapy works with the past to process healing, Life Coaching picks up where therapy leaves off and works towards future goals with forward focused actions and strategies.
We start with a recap of actions identified during the previous session. We review progress and success since our last visit. We then set a session goal to identify what you want to achieve during today’s session. We will explore what has worked and any obstacles you have come across along the way in achieving this goal. Using a variety of techniques we will determine effective ways to achieve your goal. We finish by identifying actions to take before our next visit.
An ICF Credential is a professional certification indicating that you have met specific standards and requirements designed to develop and refine your coaching skills. It is an indication that you are dedicated to upholding strong principles of ethical behavior in coaching.
During our initial discovery session, we will create a comprehensive plan based on your needs and goals. What the plan looks like will depend on what you want to achieve with your coaching and how quickly you want to get there. Most people come to a life coach with a life-changing goal in mind. In order to achieve this we break it down into smaller goals to be achieved at each session. For some people this may take as few as 6 sessions and for others it will be more. Each session lasts roughly 50 minutes.
In person or virtual meetings are available based on your preference.
Not currently, but if there is interest in group work amongst compatible clientele, I would be happy to facilitate such a format.
