Welcome to my redesigned website and new blog! I’m excited to be able to share my insights and offer suggestions for staying– or finally getting on track. There are many available resources to help you along in your journey, and I will be reviewing some of them and making recommendations. I’ll be sharing some client success stories and profiling individuals and businesses who benefit from coaching.
I thought a logical place to begin is for me to explore and explain a bit about personal coaching— and how it differs from therapy. I’m often asked about these two disciplines; how they are similar and how they differ.
In coaching, we will form a co-active partnership designed to create a vision for your future that better balances the many aspects of your life; that promotes achievement from possibilities; that inspires and motivates you to take the next step; that enhances your performance; that helps you really live the life you want to live. Such a partnership will help you stay focused and on track so you develop more rapidly and produce more satisfying results in your life than you would normally accomplish on your own.
You can choose to focus on your business, career, finances, life purpose, vocation, relationships, health, time management, spirituality, etc. If there’s an area of your life that feels out-of-sync, we can address it together and make a plan to get you back on track!
Therapy focuses on healing and correcting past problematic behavior, while Life Coaching is more positive and motivational; focusing on helping the client maximize and get the most quality out of living their life. In both, the client enters into a professional, confidential relationship to make some life changes. Communication is an essential part of this change process. Over time, with regular on-going sessions, change is expected to occur. Let me begin this journey with you!
