"REFLECTIONS" Life Coaching
What is Coaching?
Coaching is a supportive, action-oriented relationship.
As your coach, I view you as resourceful, creative and whole. Together, we identify your strengths and opportunities, and then develop a plan of action to help you achieve your goals. Clients engage a coach because they are seeking:
to reveal and honor the whole self
experience the power and possibility that comes from focusing on intentions
to increase efficiency/effectiveness at work
to take action to develop and fulfill their dreams
improved communication and self confidence using empowering language
to fully embrace and celebrate themselves and their achievements
to gain clarity on life purpose and direction
Coaching is not therapy.
Coaching accepts where you are now and focuses on looking forward to where you want to be in the future. Therapy and counseling focus on your history and analysis of how you got to your present state. Coaching and therapy often occur concurrently; or coaching picks up where therapy ends, supporting clients to integrate their therapeutic insights into everyday living. Coaches do not treat clinical disorders such as anxiety, depression, addiction and phobias. Download this PDF from Coachville.com for additional information.
The benefits of coaching are numerous, but dependent on you.
A willingness to invest in yourself and your future, to take responsibility for the direction of your life, and to make time to focus on yourself, are the only prerequisites for entering a coaching agreement. Being fully committed to your own process can lead to:
closer alignment between values and choices
living with more intention and greater consciousness
increased self-confidence and self-esteem
greater clarity about goals and how to move forward
moving towards greater life balance
greater sense of wholeness and purpose
supportive and positive relationships
increased ability to trust and take risks
more passion for life!
According to the International Coach Federation, the professional association for coaches worldwide:
"Coaching is partnering with clients in a thought-provoking and creative process that
inspires them to maximize their personal and professional potential."
