Well, you know what a coach does for a team -- helps the members of the team to be their best and reach their goals. Life coaching is similar. As your coach, I work with you to be your best and reach your goals. The coaching relationship is based on creating solutions for the challenges in your life.
Wouldn't it be great to be coached to reach your highest potential?

Is Coaching the Same as Counseling or Therapy?
No, coaching is different. With counseling or therapy, the focus is on dealing with past "issues" and psychological conditions. With life coaching, the focus is on deciding what you want to change now and in the future, and getting some support to help you accomplish that.

I'm Not Sure What I Want, Can Coaching Help?
Frequently, this is the reason a client contacts me. You may know you want a change in your life, but don't know exactly what you want. As an Inner Confidence Coach, I can help you figure that out and get you moving in a powerful new direction.

What Are Other Reasons People Hire a Coach?
Besides helping you figure out what you want out of life, there are a variety of reasons clients hire me as their coach, but here are some of the most common:
  • Have someone really listen to you
  • Get an objective perspective from someone other than family and friends
  • Explore reasons why you hold yourself back
  • Have someone support and encourage you
  • Help keep you accountable and moving forward

What Kind of Topics are Covered in Coaching Sessions?
Building Inner Confidence is the theme that carries through all our sessions. Other areas I can support you in include learning how to:
  • Deal with feelings of stress and overwhelm.
  • Move past limiting behaviors of perfectionism and procrastination.
  • Take care of yourself and put yourself back on your priority list.
  • Stop making excuses, complaining, or putting yourself down.
  • Stop worrying about what others think and value what you think.
  • Communicate more effectively to build better relationships.
  • Live intentionally instead of by default to respond instead of react.
  • Understand & master emotional fears so you can live in freedom.
  • Trust and believe in yourself.
  • Get clear, focused, and unstuck.

How are Coaching Sessions Done?
Coaching sessions typically consist of 50-60 minute appointments by telephone.

Phone sessions save you time since you don't have to commute. They also make life coaching available almost anywhere, so you and I don't have to live in the same city. Also, many people feel a more comfortable speaking over the phone rather than in person, to more freely communicate ideas and express their needs.

At the end of each coaching session, you are given agreed upon assignments as homework, to practice and integrate what was discussed in our session. Some of these are written assignments, yet many are skills to practice within your daily life.

How Would I Know if Coaching is Right for Me?
Coaching is a mutual relationship, meaning that in order for you to make changes in your life you need to be an active participant. As your coach, I am there to support and encourage you -- but it's your life and ultimately your actions that will create lasting changes. Ask yourself these questions:
  • Am I ready to invest time for myself?
  • Can I make and keep appointments to work on the process?
  • Am I open to hearing ideas I may not have thought of before?
  • Do I have the desire to consistently practice new skills?
  • Do I feel that coaching would be the right avenue for me, rather than counseling or therapy?
  • Am I willing to invest financially in my personal growth?
  • Am I willing to commit to making changes in my life?
  • Am I ready to have what I want?
If you can answer "yes" to these questions, coaching would be the very best step you could take for yourself.

What Makes You Different Than Other Coaches?
There are many coaches out there, so choosing one can be a challenge. As you see in my bio, I have over 20 years experience coaching others to develop the Inner Confidence to be their best.
My style is warm and encouraging. I believe in treating people with kindness, caring and respect, and will never shame or embarrass you. I'll be your cheerleader, while still holding you accountable. Making changes in your life can be scary, and I'll be there to ease you through it and celebrate each step along the way. My strengths lie in explaining things in a simple, understandable way and gently encouraging you forward.

Read through the testimonials. These are examples of what I can do as your coach.
