Is Life Coaching for You?
I do not give advice
I am trained in the art of asking questions and offer experiential exercises designed to help you connect with your inner wisdom. Only you know what is right for you.
I expect you to be 100% committed to the process
I meet with my clients once a week for at least the first three months to establish momentum and set a solid foundation for effective life coaching. I only allow for missed weeks due to illness, vacation, or extenuating circumstances.
If you are looking to be coached on a bi-weekly basis or as needed, I am not the life coach for you. Clients prepay for coaching sessions the first week of every month. I have this policy to ensure that my clients stay with the process so that when the “going gets tough” they hang in there until they get to the other side. I am 100% committed to my client’s growth and aligning with their life purpose and I expect all of my clients to share this same mission.
You will have weekly homework assignments
At the end of each life coaching session, we co-create an assignment/experiment that takes the learning from the session out into the real world. It is not always a concrete action-oriented assignment. Sometimes you simply contemplate the session, contemplate a phrase or a metaphor. If homework isn’t completed, we get curious about the resistance and use it as an opportunity to deepen your learning. I do not shame or chastise clients for incomplete assignments.
I emphasize body awareness as an essential tool for living a life of fulfillment
I believe that the body is the most sophisticated instrument out there. And we have access to it 24 hours a day! We are taught in our culture to ignore our body and medicate it. As a coach, I put great emphasis on heightening your awareness of your body and learning the art of listening to your body and using it as a tool to move into a life of consciousness.
I believe that we can’t heal it until we feel it
Like the body, I support the belief that our emotions are our portals into living a full life. We heighten awareness around your emotional self throughout coaching using it as another vital tool to align with a life of fulfillment.
The Wheel of Life
The eight sections in the Wheel of Life represent Balance. Seeing the center of the wheel as 0 and the outer edges as 10, rank your level of satisfaction with each life area by drawing a straight or curved line to create a new outer edge. The new perimeter represents the wheel of your life.
