What is Coaching?
It’s a thoughtful, energizing, and creative process led by you to discover who you are, what you truly want and how to create it. Coaching is about building a life you love, and quite possibly, a life you’ve only dreamed is possible, by asking different questions, accessing new information, considering fresh solutions, and taking new actions.
For some, coaching is about building out a framework for a new career or a fresh approach to self-care while others use life coaching to design dramatic lifestyle transformations that leave no stone unturned. Wherever you are and whatever you want, life coaching can help you.
How will we work together?
We’ll start with a deep dive into all things YOU, exploring what really brings you alive and what you want to create in your life. As your coach, I’ll invite you into several longer conversations up front – in person, by video and/or over the phone - to create a clear sense of your vision. From there, we’ll develop a structure for our alliance that will fully support your coaching work including regular conversations along with email, text, and spot coaching as needed to serve your learning.
Along with a 360 degree, holistic view of your life and a host of learning tools and practices, our work will include these six core elements personalized to you…
Body Mindset – we’ll work with the body using breathwork, centering and other body-mind tools to deepen awareness of and access to the vast knowledge and resources available in our bodies, helping you to build your inner capacity for calm strength and creative energy.
Mindful Presence – we’ll cultivate the quality of “presence” which is a state of deep awareness accessible to us at every moment but often overlooked and undeveloped. I’ll help you cultivate presence in your life to support your capacity to be with what’s happening in the here and now as you create your future.
Being and Doing - we’ll enhance your body, heart and mind skills – your inner capacities – as the foundation for the life you’ll build. Together, we’ll design actions for inner/“being” work and outer/“doing” work to deepen your awareness and forward your learning.
Self Compassion - we'll integrate loving-kindness for yourself and others to soothe and comfort you in your growth.
Relationships - we'll design and build your team of collaborators, supporters, mentors, and all around favorite people to ensure you have all the help you need to live the life you want.
Innovative Thinking - we'll tap into deep curiosity about everything, asking powerful questions and exploring new ways of looking at your life to ensure you're not just solving problems but that you're solving the right problems for you.
