What is Life Coaching?

Life coaching is a practice aimed at helping you identify and achieve your personal and professional goals. A life coach serves as a supportive partner, guiding and motivating you to make positive changes in your life. As your coach, I work with you to clarify your aspirations, overcome obstacles, and create an action plan to reach your desired outcomes.

What is a Life Coach?

A life coach is a professional who helps you achieve your goals in various areas of life - relationships, career, health, time management, parenting, etc.  

 

It's important to note that life coaching is not therapy or counseling. While therapy focuses on healing emotional wounds and addressing mental health concerns, life coaching is primarily future-oriented, focusing on setting goals and taking action to create a more fulfilling life.

 

If you're seeking guidance, support, and motivation to achieve your goals, working with a life coach can be a valuable investment in your personal and professional development.

How can Life Coaching help?

Goal setting: A life coach assists you in defining clear and meaningful goals. They help you identify what you truly want to achieve and establish a roadmap to get there.

 

Clarity and self-discovery: Through thought-provoking questions and exercises, a life coach helps you gain a deeper understanding of yourself, your values, strengths, and weaknesses. This self-awareness can lead to clarity in decision-making and life direction.

 

Overcoming obstacles: Life coaches support you in identifying and overcoming obstacles that may be holding you back from reaching your goals. They help you develop strategies to navigate challenges and provide accountability to keep you on track.

Motivation and accountability: A life coach acts as a source of motivation and encouragement. They hold you accountable for the commitments you make to yourself and help you stay focused on your priorities.

 

Personal growth and development: Life coaching facilitates personal growth by helping you break through self-limiting beliefs, fostering confidence, and developing new skills. It can enhance your overall well-being and satisfaction with life.

 

Work-life balance: A life coach can assist you in achieving a healthy work-life balance by helping you prioritize and manage your time effectively. They can support you in setting boundaries and finding harmony between different aspects of your life.

 

Improved relationships: Life coaching can also benefit your relationships by enhancing your communication skills, emotional intelligence, and self-awareness. This can lead to more fulfilling and meaningful connections with others.

My life coaching philosophy. My thoughts and ideas about being a parent in the modern world.  Work Life Balance for working parents.

What is your coaching philosophy?

In recognizing the demands we encounter as individuals, parents, and families in today's world, I firmly believe in the power of crafting a fresh vision and framework to discover innovative solutions. The issues we face today are intricate and unprecedented. There is no one-size-fits-all formula that can be simply handed to us; rather, the complexities of today's issues demand a more tailored and adaptable approach.

 

My objective is to assist my clients to cultivate the necessary skills, abilities, habits, and systems to navigate the ever-evolving landscape for working parents and families. I am deeply committed to helping my clients thrive in this dynamic environment.

My passion is to help parents that feel stressed and overwhelmed to find calm and joy in the day to day challenges that come with being alive in the world today. Work Life Balance for Working Parents.

Why coaching is my passion

The modern family is in transition, and its not always a pretty sight! Parents are often stressed, overwhelmed, and exhausted and neglecting their own needs and self-care. I get it! I have a teenager and young adult at home, I own a business and run a coaching practice, and am active in my community with volunteering and service. I am perpetually searching for ways to integrate my various worlds and keep the joy of life alive.

 

I'm always on the lookout for new tools, strategies and systems to intentionally wake up with enthusiasm and focus.

All the tools and strategies I know and have found to be effective I use in my coaching.

 

The keys to the success of my coaching are the techniques and tools I use to help you develop the capacity to deal with the complexities of modern living with a career and family, while also equipping you for any difficulties or challenges you may face in the future. 

You will step forward with a robust plan in hand and a new resilience to face whatever life may throw in your way.

My greatest joy is to work with parents and help them with balancing all the aspects of a complex and busy life into an integrated whole that doesnt feel fragmented and divided. I love helping parents find ways to systematically integrate work and family life with tools and strageies that work.

Who do I work with?

I work with clients who feel stuck and stressed in their lives and careers. My clients want more out of life but they are unsure of the steps to take to align themselves more fully with their goals. My clients might be at a point of transition in their lives, in the process of changing directions in their careers or facing challenging relationships or circumstances.

My objective is to assist my clients to cultivate the necessary skills, abilities, habits, and systems to navigate the ever-evolving landscape for working parents and families. I am deeply committed to helping my clients thrive in this dynamic environment.

I work with a diverse clientele which includes adults in every stage of life and teens who are just beginning to map out their futures.

How are coaching sessions held?

Sessions are held via Zoom or in person and last anywhere between 50 and 90 minutes.

The term “coach” is often used broadly.  I have invested in and completed formalized training through The Lifecoach School with Master Coach Instructor Brooke Castillo and The Wholebeing Institute.  I have completed stringent education and practicum requirements and have demonstrated a commitment to the highest coaching standards.

Payment options

If you have any questions about payment options, please reach out to me personally.  We can discuss options and can customize a payment structure to meet your needs. I never want coaching to be inaccessible to someone who is looking for support and accountability.
