Personal coaching supports and guides you in your desire to explore where you are now, determine where you want to be within a given timeframe, and then create a pathway to get there with the understanding that you are being supported in a nonjudgmental manner.
My approach to coaching is not traditional. My method offers you a blend of Eastern philosophy and energetic healing that is anchored in a conventional coaching structure. As a student and practitioner of the Shambhala lineage of Buddhist thought I believe that every human being has a fundamental nature of goodness, warmth and intelligence. This nature can be cultivated through meditation, following ancient principles, and it can be further developed in daily life, so that it radiates out to family, friends, community and society.
I will guide the sessions, which are typically 60 minutes every other week, by asking questions that are designed to assist you in gaining insight, clarity and raising awareness. My approach to coaching is to view you as whole, competent and capable. My goal, as your coach, is to empower you to access your own innate knowing or wisdom. You are free to accept or decline whatever is suggested.
The journey of becoming a fully actualized person means seeing through fear and ego, and waking up to our natural intelligence. It takes kindness to ourselves and others and courage, to wake up in this world. You must take responsibility and accountability for your life.
The benefits of coaching are all predicated on how willing you are to work hard to attain the life you envision. The rewards can include:
Please Note: Personal coaching is NOT therapy and it is not a substitute for psychotherapy. Coaching is not a clinical therapeutic process. It is process taken from the model of wellness not disease. Psychotherapy deals with emotional healing. Coaching is about goal achievement, not healing from recognized psychiatric diagnoses.
