Life can be filled with exciting opportunities, difficult challenges and constant change. Sometimes we need help finding ways to cope with and thrive after unexpected changes we didn’t seek. And sometimes we need help identifying and figuring out how to make positive changes that we do seek.
Life Coaching can help you to gain control over your circumstances, clarify how you want your life to progress, and take decisive action to move toward the positive changes you seek.
“The difference between misery and happiness depends on what we do with our attention.” ― Sharon Salzberg
How Life Coaching Can Help You
Life Coaching is beneficial for a variety of issues including (but by no means limited to):

- Finding purpose and meaning
- Committing to change
- Figuring out what to do next
The Life Coaching Process
So how does Life Coaching work?
As your life coach, I will begin by listening to your story with empathy and compassion. By asking clarifying questions and challenging your basic assumptions to encourage expansive thinking, I will help you to gain clarity about the future you want for yourself. Dreaming big and moving past limiting beliefs can be extremely informative and effective for making positive change.
Once we get a clear vision of what you want from your future, we will figure out a practical path to get there. We’ll explore your strengths and resources, as well as your practical needs and constraints. We’ll look at different options for moving forward and create a plan for getting started and making real, practical, rapid progress toward your goal.
Some of the progress will come in our life coaching sessions, and some will come in between them —as you’re living your life with renewed purpose, focus, and energy. I’ll be there to provide information, point out insights you may not have seen before, and help you find ways to use your strengths to find both the courage to begin and the persistence to continue on the path toward your goals for positive change.
