Coaching is a collaborative specific style of conversation, assisting you to transform and align your habits, beliefs, and perspective so you experience fulfilling your dream and goals while you lead a satisfying life.
During the process you will go through a journey of phases to reach your aim. As your coach I am your co-pilot, ally, sounding board, brainstorm-pal and confidante, helping you to reach your goal sooner then if you where to go it alone.
Together YOU determine the direction, phase and outcome. As your coach I am the catalyst getting you there faster.
Professional coaches are trained to listen, observe, and to evoke solutions and strategies from the client. The coach’s job is to enhance and empower the latent skills, resources, and creativity inherent in the client.
Teaming up with a skilled professional coach you achieve more of the results you want. A coach engages with a client in a thought-provoking and creative process that inspires and supports them to maximize their potential while holding them to their well being.

Can you provide me references?
What experience, skills or abilities do you have that match my needs?
What are your specialties?
What kinds of clients are you passionate about working with?
What makes you a fabulous coach?
Questions to ask yourself:
Do I have rapport, trust and confidence with this coach?
Do I feel I have this coach’s full undivided attention?
Do feel I understood, respected and held to my best self by this coach?
Do I sense we have a matching communication style and connection?
Would I feel safe bringing ANY topic to coach on with this person?

What the coaching looks like.
Coaching builds momentum over time. Generally you would sign on to coach for a minimum of 6 months to work on a project or a series of goals. Your initial session would be a 2 hour in person, conference or phone call. This Foundation Session sets a solid start line and measure for all future coaching.
Following our coaching takes place by telephone 2 or 3 times per month for a 45-60 minute focused and intensive session. You choose the frequency and length of session depending on your needs. Our coaching relationship is maintained for the entire month by email and voicemail follow up.
I will coach you through the process in your search and quest to overcome the hurdles that prevent you from your goals.
It’s so worth it!
While the sessions themselves are incredibly powerful, the time in between is even more so. In the time in between you implement the coaching results in your everyday life and begin to see the desired results!
My ultimate job as your coach is to move you to higher levels of performance and not burn out. You learnt to step continually into a more successful and fulfilling life that is successful and sustainable.
It’s so exciting to experience your life shift towards more of what you want its the best sensation you can imagine.
