WHAT IS COACHING?

A coach is someone you connect with and learn to trust in order to understand why your life is the way it is, to define what a life you love looks like and to take guided steps to create that life. You may be feeling stuck, out of alignment with the life you have instead of the one you want or you may not even know what it is you truly want. Coaching will create clarity.

A coach meets you at the place you are in your life and helps you define where you are going and expertly guides you to keep moving forward. Being seen and heard by someone with no judgement, no limiting beliefs about you and complete acceptance, is very powerful and profound.

A coach leads the way to the greatest life success in the least amount of time. It requires regular sessions, self exploration between sessions and a commitment between coach and client to do what it takes for you to move forward. You will celebrate your victories (there will be many) and reframe your setbacks.

Change can be be exciting and uplifting but can also be scary and unfamiliar. All is fine while you do not venture outside your comfort zone. Once you do, the discomfort starts. That’s when most people back down from change. The ego loves that. A coach will soothe this discomfort with encouragement, understanding and the truth of who you really are. You will feel safe to continue where you would normally stop. You will begin to view your world and personal power totally differently as your desired results start showing up.

I used coaching extensively in my journey back to health without chemo. Most importantly, it changed my way of thinking and my ability to create the life I really wanted regardless of circumstances. There is nothing more powerful than being the master of your own life.

Coaching vs Therapy

  • Coaching focuses more on your future than your past life and is more strategic (you have a goal you want to work towards).
  • Coaching requires taking action between sessions to reinforce new ideas, challenge beliefs and to rewire habits.
  • Coaching increases your accountability to your goals with regular check-ins.
  • Therapists work more from a healthcare perspective and are trained to deal with more severe trauma and mental health issues.
  • Coaching has more freedom in choosing the training and techniques that best suit a client since it is not so regulated.
  • Contact with therapists is often during appointments only. Coaching tends to be more collaborative and ongoing.
  • Therapists are often assigned through regulated health plans whereas a coach is more personal choice and a felt connection.
  • Coaching can be more intensive and focused on getting results quickly and requires more of a commitment for both coach and client.
