What is Life Coaching?
Life coaching is a combination of conversation and action. It is a relationship designed to assist you in personal growth. Coaching can be used for just about any area of your life that needs attention. It can help solve a current problem, find healing, or improve your overall wellness. Coaching often uses a ‘strengths based approach’ by discovering the client’s strengths and then creating strategies to use these strengths to achieve growth.
Coaching offers approaches for physical, mental/emotional, and spiritual wellness. While life coaching is not counseling or psychotherapy because it does not diagnose or treat, it does incorporate conversation to gain awareness of the underlying issues in order to create action steps toward healing. Life coaching is different from mentorship in that it is guided by the client’s goals and desires for their life, rather than the coach’s.
A life coach offers fresh perspectives, motivation, and accountability to help you determine your goals and stay on track towards achieving them. Life coaching can offer a more efficient and effective way to fulfill your life purpose and become your best “you”.
What is different about your coaching approach?
I often call my coaching “Physical Therapy” because I like to incorporate movement into the appointment as able. I have found that many of us process better when we are moving (particularly walking or jogging) and often use cardio equipment or walks outside in our sessions to help move our minds and bodies at the same time.
As a certified life coach, personal trainer, and nutrition consultant, I am able to help address emotional and physical health. This can be done through any combination of traditional conversation, ‘movement therapy’, nutrition assistance, and wellness routines.
My goal for each woman is to find healing, health, and wholeness in all areas of her life.
How would I benefit from Coaching?
Life and wellness coaching is results driven based on the client’s goals. It provides that extra support that can make all the difference when working towards success. Just as an athlete finds greater success with the help of a coach, a life coach can offer that same type of support to help you reach your full potential. So, whether you just need a little help overcoming a small hurdle or looking for someone to partner with you for long-term success, a life coach is a great asset.
How does it work?
If you are near the York, Pennsylvania area and prefer to meet in person, I travel to my local client’s home or office. Otherwise, our sessions will be over the phone or via skype. Each coaching session is 50 minutes and is typically offered 3-4 times per month and includes emails and brief “celebration” or “crisis aversion” calls/texts in between. Each client will have a customized program designed according to their needs. Though not required, it is recommended that a client commit to at least three months at the beginning for optimum success.
Currently, I am offering personal training sessions at my client’s preferred location (home, gym, outdoors) and as many times per week as you prefer. Each client can modify their package according to individual needs (see specific services for more information).
