Personal Life Coaching
I am so glad you’re here reading this! It means you’re exploring your readiness for coaching and it’s the first step to designing the life you want to live.
No two coaches are the same. Just like you, we each have a set of experiences and skills that shape who we are today. Finding the right coach that aligns with you creates a space and relationship for understanding, insight, trust, boldness, and growth.
Creating awareness is the backbone of my coaching. Who knows you best? You! You have the answers that you seek, but you may need a coach to ask you exploratory questions to create awareness and hold you accountable for change. I am not here to fix you because nothing is broken, you simply may have blind spots that need to be explored.
There’s also a level of commitment that comes with coaching. Your coach needs to be committed to your agenda, but ultimately, so do you. In my experience, those that fully engage in the process with a growth mindset, put in the time and effort and embrace change, even incremental, are the ones I see with the most success. Awareness paired with action items and behavior changes foster transformation.
Seven Great Reasons You’re Ready To Be Coached:
You don’t have a clear coaching outcome, but you like the idea of self-improvement.
You have clear goals, but don’t know how to achieve them.
You want to enhance your leadership skills.
You have a big decision to make or are going through something and want support.
You’re unclear about your gift in the world and your life purpose.
You want to be held accountable for a life change, decision, goal(s) or a project.
You want to have deeper awareness with your well-being and want to explore subjects like stress management, emotional regulation, cognitive agility, resilience, connection or spirituality.
Coaching is a partnership between coach and client where each holds space for a thought-provoking and creative process, inspiring you to maximize both personal and professional potential.

Give you advice: A good coach will not tell you what to do or force an assignment on you. You may be asked or even self-assign a challenge to take a closer look at something in your life, try an experiment, change a behavior, be more mindful or push your edge, but you can always choose to do it or not.
Be a consultant: There are other professions that handle the unique expertise of diagnosing and implementing a process that you may be looking for in your business or family. If a coach is working with you or your team, they generally will hold the same philosophy as they do when working with an individual and ask you or your team to be creative, resourceful and whole. Otherwise, you may want to hire an expert in their field.
Be your therapist: Coaching can be a powerful, life-changing experience, but it’s not therapy nor should it replace any psychological or medical advice. An ethical coach won’t diagnose or prognose any mental or physical condition or dispense any medication. While your past may come up in coaching from time to time, coaches are here to help you be present and manifest your future.
