HERE’S WHAT TO EXPECT
Notice at minute 3:22 Oprah mentions the contribution of a Life Coach that totally changed her life.
What is Life Coaching?
You are the only expert who can recognize what is absolutely best for you. We are simply experts in the coaching process. As your coach, we help you discover what your own personal “best” is. Every day we make choices to do or not do many things. These choices may be profound or trivial and each one makes our lives more fulfilling or less fulfilling, more balanced or less balanced. Life coaching helps you learn how to make choices that create an effective, balanced and fulfilling life. We are highly trained as generalists and can coach superbly on any aspect of life. However, we may choose to specialize in one or more of the following areas:
- Confidence, Self Worth & Self Esteem
- Loving Relationships That Work
- Career Change – Creating Workplaces That Work
- The Mastery of Balance – Juggling a Life
- Self Care – Getting Your Own Needs Met
- Living Your Purpose
- Hot Buttons – Managing Anger, Upsets, Frustration and Stress
- Managing Grief, Loss, Sadness and Change
- Connection Parenting
- Self & Identity – Surviving the Oppressive Over-Culture
- Homesteading, Environmental Activism & Permaculture
- Artists – Creativity & Art
- Food, Nutrition, & Optimal Health
Initially, we recommend that you honor yourself with committing to six sessions of coaching. This will be more evident when you are feeling frustrated and like nothing is happening. This is perfectly normal and most often is an indication that you are on the verge of a breakthrough. After that, we can continue on a session to session basis. When you decide it is time to end our coaching relationship, please give one session’s notice. This will give us time to capture your learning and strategize for what is next in your life.
Our coaching relationship is completely confidential. You are free to share whatever you choose from our sessions with anyone. We on the other hand will not be telling anyone that you are a client, unless you wish us to, and we will not reveal the content of our coaching sessions to anyone.
It is a very powerful tool to simply share what you are learning with others in your life. That alone can help reinforce new insights and skills for you.
Communication, homework, accountability, sharing successes and roadblocks can all be handled through e-mail. This can be a great tool to keep working your new “muscles”. If you need to call me, please do so at regular business hours. You might consider purchasing a notebook to record any notes and thoughts after our sessions to help “lock in” what you are learning.
