All of us have times in our lives when we make a choice to get
from where we are now to someplace else. Life Planning is about
closing that gap. To achieve this, we use Coaching as the method
to help you reshape your thinking and take action..
What is coaching?
Coaching is a process of conversation that helps you define a gap
between where you are and where you want to be. Then a discovery
process takes place where you take actions to bridge that gap. Your
Coach is a partner in helping you define your action items and help
you stay on track.
What coaching isn't?
Coaching is not therapy- it does not try to eliminate but rather
works with your current situation. For example: you have a fear
of dogs and will be in a situation soon where you will be in close
contact with a dog. You would go to a therapist to work on you why
you have this fear and how to eliminate it. You could work with
a coach to help you define and implement ways to deal with the situation
coming up. I refer clients to licensed therapists when appropriate.
Why do I need coaching?
Throughout the years we build habitual patterns that I call the
“cocoon”. These cocoons have helped us remain safe and secure in
the world. They can also hinder us from moving forward in our lives.
I will help you step out of your cocoon and into a fresh experience
by gentle questioning that will empower you to take action. By doing
so, you will have more energy, and more awareness to improve your
personal and financial life.
How do I know if someone is qualified to
Your Coach should be certified by the International Federation
of Coaches, or be enrolled in a program to obtain certification.
