What is Coaching?
My coaching philosophy holds that people are naturally creative, resourceful and whole — completely capable of finding their own answers to whatever challenges they face. The job of a coach is to ask powerful questions, listen and empower to elicit the skills and creativity a client already possesses, rather than instruct or advise. Coaching supports you to deal with the goals and issues facing you at that moment. It is about helping you define and take action to get what you really want in your entire life.
How do I know if Coaching is for me?
Life coaching applies to any human that has a life involving career, family, friends, leisure, spirituality, finances, personal growth, etc. Coaching is about where you are in your life today and where you want to go. Coaching helps set goals, keep commitments and offers accountability.
What can I expect out of Coaching?
Coaching will allow you to develop valuable goals through your passions and desires. I will support you in setting and achieving goals you may find daunting or self-defeating. Coaching provides you with a safe environment to work through your day to day topics while remaining your focus on the big picture. My ears are open to listen and I will help you find your answers. I will be there for encouragement, acknowledgment and to hold you accountable to the commitments and choices you have made. I will always be honest, truthful and keep your words confidential.
What's the difference between Coaching and Therapy?
Psychotherapy generally deals with people who have emotional/behavioral problems and disruptive situations — and seeks to bring the client to normal function by focusing on dysfunction. The primary focus is on healing. Coaching on the other hand deals with functional people who want to move toward higher function — and achieve excellence while creating an extraordinary life. The primary focus is on evolving a manifestation of potential. And, healing is often a side effect. Additionally, the expectations and focus the client brings to the professional relationship sets the context as coaching or as therapy.
