Turn it into sunshine...
The power of confidential coaching comes from the space you and I create together to give you room to rise.
Ready to kick all the ass at life and love?
How do we invite the light? Keep reading.
I'll facilitate our coaching conversations by:
Um, duh? Obvi. Okay, yeah, fair -- your dog can do that. But I listen beyond just your words. I listen to your body language, expression, tone, and energy (that's why I coach via video chat instead of phone). I listen for changes, or resistance, or excitement. I listen with curiosity and without judgement, knowing that you are whole and in command of your life. My listening informs the questions I'll ask you.
I ask questions that invite you to listen to what you have to say. I ask questions from a place of curiosity -- I will not try to edge you into a certain conclusion with my line of questioning. The truth about your needs/longings/desires, and the courage to stop playing small and live full-fire is already in you. So I ask questions to help create an openness you can fill with your own truth. I ask lots of questions. Pointed ones. Open-ended ones. Challenging ones. And then I give you time to sit with them, think about them, explore what comes up.
I'll remind you why you started when things feel hard. I'll call bullshit if you sell yourself -- or your dreams -- short. I'll celebrate tiny victories and huge breakthroughs with you with praise hand emojis and impromptu dance videos. I'll echo the new stories you write, so you can see from a different angle how much freaking beauty you're growing with your choices and actions. It's like you're a boxer, and I'm in your corner, ready to encourage you between rounds. Except, don't ever hand me your mouth guard. Like, ever, for any reason. Kthanks.
I support you throughout the week with personalized video messages, text messages, or emails. You decide what would be most helpful for you when it comes to encouragement and accountability.
I believe in the power of #empiricalevidence. Like, what do we want? Science. When do we want it? After it's been peer reviewed. I also believe in the potency of intuition, "gut feelings", and a few other concepts science hasn't yet proven or analyzed. In my practice as a coach there's room for both.
Studies conducted by experts in many fields (including neuroscience, psychology, education, and physiology) inform the exercises, visualizations, and activities that I create and use with clients. My personal academic study of human development, communication, educational psychology, and literature also influence the activities I design.
Many of these tools are inspired by situations that clients or friends have brought to me, or by experiences from my own life.
