Do I need a life coach?
I think everyone can benefit from coaching IF they are open and willing to consider making changes to their thoughts, attitudes, or actions to achieve their goals. I get coached by some of my trusted colleagues whenever I’m stuck on a particular challenge, suffering from the critical voice in my head, or when I need a third party to help me see past binary thinking. In the training I received to become a life coach, the individual’s own guidance is paramount. In today’s world, where we are bombarded with messages from experts, advertisers, and well-meaning friends and family about the best or only way to do anything — diet, exercise, dating, relationships, career, health decisions, life — I find it refreshing and empowering to help my clients connect to their own inner strength, wisdom, and peace.
How are you qualified to be a life coach?
I took Martha Beck’s Life Coach Training in 2011 and received my certification in the beginning of 2012. The certification process included a number of hours coaching individuals, a written exam, and a practical coaching exam. In 2014, I took Martha Beck’s Master Life Coach Training and received my certification as a Master Coach that fall. Through this training, my coaching skills were evaluated, as well as my teaching and writing skills. In addition, I have taking training courses on teaching, positive psychology, developing my intuitive gifts, and accessing the Akashic Records. I continue to do continuing education to further my skills and knowledge.
How long do sessions last?
Each coaching session is generally 60 minutes in length. Most of my clients have gotten the most benefit from having a series of sessions, either weekly or every other week, to help create new patterns of thought, action, and ways of being.
Where are sessions held?
I work by phone or Skype, so location is not an issue. I recommend that you find a quiet space where you can have privacy and no distractions.
Do you have any success stories?
Yes! Several of my clients have graciously written testimonials speaking to their experience with my coaching. You can read them here.
