I love the response I get when I tell people I’m a Life Coach. They are so positive and supportive, but often respond by saying, “Oh that sounds amazing!,- What is a Life Coach?”
It’s a great question, so I thought I’d just share a little about what exactly it is that I do! I practice what is called “causal” coaching. Meaning I help people find the cause of a problem they are experiencing and we treat the cause, and not the symptoms. My goal is to help you learn to coach yourself through difficulties rather than relying on a therapist or coach long term.
Even though I have a degree in Psychology, I am not a therapist. So perhaps you are wondering, “What is the difference between therapy and coaching?” My answer is that therapy is past focused, seeking to discover and treat past trauma. It is for those who may have received a medical diagnosis that requires Psychotherapy.
Coaching, on the other hand, is forward focused. I help you recognize that the past is over and can no longer hurt you. It’s for those who are tired of rehashing the same old story, beating themselves up, and are ready to move onward and upward! I work mainly with women who are struggling with relationships, who are working towards new goals, or are having a hard time processing negative emotions such as anxiety and fear. I often hear from my clients that they just feel stuck. This is where I can step in and really help you move forward.
Coaching is for those who are already functioning at a high level, but are ready to step up and create awesome results that bring fulfillment, joy and lasting change. I meet with my clients online with an app called Zoom. It’s super easy to download to your phone or computer, and then I send you a link to meet up with me so it’s very convenient and doesn’t require any travel!
I hope this helps to clarify. If you have questions or would like to schedule a free consult, message me!
Have a gorgeous day my friends!
