What is Coaching?

…Partnering with clients in a thought-provoking and creative process that inspires them to maximize their personal and professional potential.

Coaching is not about me telling you what you need to do.

Coaching is about working together is a way that is co-creative and synergistic.  We become a team, working on figuring out what you want to do and how you can overcome the barriers and clear a path to doing it.

I am not the authority on your life.  I know some things – ok, I know a lot of things about trauma and how it touches us.  I know some ways to work through that.  Because I’ve done this work for a long time, I have some resources to suggest and some tools that might be helpful.  But I don’t know the path you need to take.

Whole Person coaching offers a number of tools we can explore.  We can look at the Web of Life or do a values clarification exercise.  We can talk about archetypes – who are you in the different parts of your life?  How do you show up and how do you want to show up?  We can do a Mind Map or help you describe your vision for yourself.  All of our efforts are dedicated to helping you build a life that supports the work you do, a life that lets you shine.
