What Is Life Coaching?
The International Coach Federation’s (ICF) definition of a coach is…
A professional who supports, empowers and challenges individuals to help them realize their personal and professional goals. Coaching is partnering with clients in a thought-provoking and creative process that inspires them to maximize their personal and professional potential.
What Coaching is NOT…
Staring at your past
Dissecting all the things that are fucked up about you.
Your Coach rattling off opinions and advising you on all that you "should" be doing with your life
What Coaching IS…
Helping you understand what's keeping you stuck
Empowering you to advocate for you and transforming your life look the way YOU want it to
Bridging the gap from dreaming about the thing you really want to actually making it a reality.
Reconnecting you to who you are and who you want to be.
I don’t expect you to know how to make these things possible, because if you did, you wouldn’t be calling me. But I know. And I got you!
You dig a metaphor?
Coaching is like being in a car.
The rearview mirror is smaller than the windshield because you do need to GLANCE and understand what lies behind you
What lies before you is where you focus.
You shift your energy on where you are going.
Your GPS needs to know where you ARE to navigate where you are going.
Instead of fear being in the driver’s seat, you understand the fear give it some love, and then put love back in the driver’s seat of your life.
Sometimes you get lost, thrown off course or have things happen outside of our control.
You gain the tools to handle it all and get back on the road and keep driving!
