Coaching is about wellness. It offers possibilities over pathology. It promotes insight and integration and creates a safe environment where you can see yourself more clearly. Coaching is distinguished from therapy, consulting, and teaching by three interconnecting principals:
You are the expert in your life.
You are responsible for your choices.
The focus is on desired outcomes.
When you are not moving in the direction of your dreams or your purpose, you feel tight, constricted, or dis-eased. When you are in alignment with your true nature, that dis-ease dissipates and over time goes away. You feel more energetic and alive.
Where is the focus in your life? Look around you and you will know.
Where would you like the focus of your life to be?
How can Coaching help you?
Coaching is for anyone who wants to live better life and be successful in their own terms. Coaching helps many develop insight and reach their goals. Read on to see how coaching can help you.
Coaching will help you identify what’s important in your life. Together we will identify your values and goals and help you develop direction. Having direction will accelerate your success.
Coaching will help you reach your potential. As coaches, we help you get serious about your goals, motivating you to “step it up”.
Coaching helps keep you focused. Defining specific goals and creating a plan with little steps and mini goals will decrease the sense of overwhelm, making it easier to stay focused and achieve that end goal.
A coach makes you accountable. Gently sitting on your shoulder whispering in your ear, “You can do it. Take the next step,” your coach will help overcome your obstacles so you can stay on track.
Coaching saves you time and unnecessary stress. Having someone to help you figure out all the steps saves you valuable time and stress. A coach will help you move from point A to point B, so you get there faster.
Coaching increases your confidence. A coach can help you see what you have already accomplished and what is working for you. A coach helps you maintain focus on positivity, gratitude, potential, values, and the DREAM! This keeps you motivated.
Coaching helps you train your brain. Athletes do it, and so can you. Your brain is full of neural pathways that are really just learned patterns. If bad habits are learned, they can be unlearned. There is research to show it can be done! Mind-Body Medicine, with the help of a coach, is a great way to retrain your brain, helping you create habits you want and eliminate the ones you don’t want.
Coaching helps you understand yourself better and identify blind spots. A coach offers an outsider’s perspective and can help you see blocks or blind spots that keep you stuck. A coach will help you analyze your strengths, weaknesses, and areas for improvement while helping you see what is working in your life. As you understand yourself better, you can work on becoming who you want to be and achieve the success you deserve and desire.
Coaching can help you improve your leadership skills. Working with a coach you will become a better listener and learn to ask more powerful questions. You can apply your new skills to all areas of your life.
Coaching will boost your overall well-being. As you understand yourself better, learn skills to sustain change, focus on what’s really important, see progress toward your goals, learn listening skills and improve your time management, you turn down the stress response, decreasing blood pressure, blood sugar, cortisol, cholesterol, and inflammation. You turn up the relaxation response, allowing for rest. You work smarter, your relationships improve, you sleep better, your immune system works better, and you feel supported and happier. When you feel happier and less stressed, so does everyone around you. Your life will change for the better!
