What exactly is life coaching? How does life coaching work?

The coaching relationship is an ongoing relationship of mutual respect and trust that brings clarity, commitment, and action. Mostly I work on the telephone with my clients, unless they are local and prefer face-to-face coaching.

As your personal life coach, I promise to:

  • facilitate your discovery of values and vision for what you want in your life
  • support, encourage, and acknowledge you in your process of living your values
  • help you set goals and hold you accountable to your commitments
  • support you in being all that you can be
  • help you connect to your own inner “knowingness”

Life coaching with me starts with a foundation session that helps me get to know you and what you want to achieve. After that we set up a schedule for regular sessions, normally three or four times a month. You call me at the appointed time and you set the agenda for what you want to work on during the session. I ask you questions to facilitate a process of self-discovery that will help you become clear on what direction to take and decide on necessary steps. I listen carefully to your responses and may take you deeper, challenge you, or encourage you further. Also based on your responses, I suggest “requests,” or actions for you to take before our next session together, which you can agree on, or not, or you can negotiate. During our next session I will ask you about your requests, thus keeping you accountable to commitments you make to yourself.

As human beings we have a critical, judgmental side which looks for problems, and finds obstacles to being all that we can be. We frequently focus on what isn’t working, rather than what is.

My life coaching will help you focus on what is working, what you can do, and what you want to create. Your focus expands and sharpens. When you learn how to focus on what you want rather than what you don’t want, you begin to create what you do want in your life.

It’s also very natural for us to resist change–but isn’t change the thing you can most count on? Change is inevitable and is constant. That is how the universe works: a constant movement of energy and evolution.

As your life coach, I will support you in the process of self-realization, accepting and embracing change, and appreciating the simple abundance that the universe provides when you live your fullest life. By moving from resistance to acceptance you will free up an incredible amount of energy to be creative, productive, and happy in your life!
