Is Coaching For You?
The number one benefit you will
get from this work is greater trust
in your ability to respond calmly
and confidently with anything that
shows up - to feel what you need to
feel and to act on your valued goals,
commitments, and relationships.
I have coached leaders, parents, educators, professional athletes, entertainers, & health care professionals. I have worked with:
People who are struggling with stress, anxiety, and overwhelm.
Couples and teams who seek more trust and clarity in their relationships.
Individuals who are seeking a change in career or a greater sense of purpose or calm in daily life.
The most important thing I have found is the tremendous value of looking at our lives with rigorous honesty and kindness. From this stance, we find the wisdom and discipline to put more energy into what is working and less into what is not.
Working with a coach (or at least with me ) might be a bit different than some people are used to. Because the bottom line is always your growth and wellbeing,
sometimes it can be challenging and uncomfortable, and at other times it
can be fun, funny, and genuinely invigorating.
Here's what you can expect:During our time together, I listen as carefully as I can and ask a lot of questions so that I can understand your situation and unique experience.
I may share some information and perspectives from neuroscience, psychology, enduring wisdom, or my own experience.
You will always leave the session with homework in the form of practices designed to build the internal resources and skills you need to work peacefully and powerfully with any set of circumstances. The practice is where the power is. What you do between coaching sessions is where the most insight and growth will come from.
The strength of a coach/client relationship
comes in the support and accountability. I
will be 100% in your corner. This means that
I will challenge you (as compassionately and
directly as possible) to address blindspots,
ineffective behavior, and limiting perspectives.
I will also challenge you to see the strengths
and genius you already possess. And finally,
I will hold your feet to the fire (again, with kindness) when it comes to keeping your commitment to this process and to your personal practice.
I have found that while "one off" sessions can be helpful, they don't really change lives. Therefore, I work with people in a series of 12 sessions. The cost for this series is $3000. I know that this is a lot of money, and I am ALWAYS willing to discuss financial aid. By charging a full rate to those who can afford it, I can extend my services to more people who cannot.
The opposite of anxiety is not calm, the opposite of anxiety is trust in your ability to face whatever shows up.
