A life coach listens for and supports you in creating what you want for yourself and your life. We listen for what might be stopping your or getting in your way. We support you in dismantling limiting beliefs.
Family and friends give advice. They know you based on your past.
A coach is neutral and future-focused. The past is irrelevant. A coach listens and supports you and sees you as greater than you see yourself.
No. I like to think of coaching as more "future focused." Therapy and counseling is often more past-focused. It's about moving beyond something that has happened in the past.
No. As your coach, I may ask you to consider new ways of thinking about things. I may challenge you to try on new thoughts about your situation. But you are in control. You are ALWAYS the creator of your experiences and your life.
There are many different kinds of coaches. A lot of people have seen the Tony Robbins documentary on Netflix. I love Tony Robbins, but I don't coach like him. He's a bit confrontational for my style.
I have certifications in life coaching, transformation coaching, and health and habit change coaching. I also have a background in functional nutrition, and I offer a "Create a Walking Habit One Step at a Time Program." However, I am not a nutritionist, a yoga instructor, or a fitness instructor. I work with people on mindset, dismantling limiting beliefs, and releasing things that may be holding them back from creating something different in their lives. I sometimes collaborate with yoga instructors and nutritionists to provide additional support to my clients, but we are very different kinds of professionals and businesses.
I offer several packages , including my two-month program (Creating the Future); to 12-week Creating a Walking Habit One Step at a Time half-marathon training program ; as well as six-month and year-long programs for clients who need more individualized support. I also offer one-time coaching sessions .
The best way to get started is to schedule a complimentary Discovery Session. I get to hear about your goals, and we both determine if working together is the next best step. There is no pressure, and no creepy salesy stuff. To schedule a call, click the button below.
