What is Coaching?
Coaching is a word that is used in many contexts. In my work, coaching is:
Partnering with clients in a thought-provoking and creative process that inspires them to maximize their personal and professional potential.International Coaching Federation, Definition of Coaching.
It means that you, the client, are in the driver seat of your own success, with me as coach facilitating the process of discovery, insight, and progress. It recognizes that each person has the innate abilities inside them:
We are all naturally creative, resourceful, and whole.Co-Active Coaching, What is Co-Active?
You may not feel like it, but it is true! And sometimes we all need help revealing what we all can do inside ourselves.
Improve Your Health and Life
Has life got you on the ropes? Work, relationships, family all feeling like you’re carrying a 100 lb sack of potatoes? Are you trying to reach a healthier state but finding it difficult? Do there seem to be barriers that you can’t seem to get past? Did you try some of the popular habit gurus’ suggestions and nothing seemed to stick?
Reaching the life and optimal health you desire is only one percent knowledge which is the easy part. The other ninety-nine percent is working through the various motivational, emotional, and behaviorial barriers that we all face as 21st century humans.
Working together, we will explore and unlock the resourcefulness in each and every one of us, empowering you to make lasting change in your lives towards healthier living.
What Does This Look Like?
A coaching relationship can involve many techniques:
- Traditional life coaching
- Personal training – prehab, swimming, kettlebells, calisthenics, etc.
- Nutrition coaching – lifestyle factors, eating patterns, etc.
- Somatic coaching – sound healing, yoga based techniques, meditation
We can work either independently or under the direction of a clinician, whose prescriptions you may be finding it hard to implement. Some of the common factors we will look to improve are sleep, stress, behaviors, diet, attitude, among others. We will work together to examine your current life and choose paths to optimize. Ultimately, this is a journey of self discovery and empowerment where you will discover that all of these things are possible and that you already have all the raw materials necessary to do it!
