Why I Coach

How I came to Coaching

I think I've always been a coach--even in kindergarten, I was the kid who listened to the teacher's instructions, and led the other children through the exercise.  I can see myself sitting cross legged in a circle leading the group. 

 

I love sharing resources with my clients. I lend books, suggest articles and classes, and host workshops. I have learned that reading a book, taking a class, or visiting a website--for most of us--doesn't create behavior change. 

In 2011 I found myself saying repeatedly, "If I had known I was going to be this passionate about food l'd have become a Naturopath." In 2016, one of my CranioSacral clients told me that she thought of me as her Life Coach.

 

I chose to pursue certification in coaching so that I would understand the psychological, and physiological aspects of behavior change.  My training is based in neuro-linguistic programing (NLP) which helps people identify limiting beliefs and move past them.  It's like updating old software on your computer. Coaching has been the missing link in my manual therapy practice--helping people create transformation in their health and their lives. 

There is something alchemical in the coaching relationship. With the right system, the right support, and the right accountability my clients move mountains--and the changes they make LASTS--FOR GOOD.

On Having A Coach

IF you want something in your life... you need to develop skills and exert effort.

No one knows now to roll a sea kayak without consistent practice!

 

Why I have a Coach

  • I feel deeply heard, and valued (even when I fall off track).

  • With a coach, it feels like my goals are easily in reach.

  • I appreciate that I have someone who doesn't buy my Big Story (BS).

  • I love having a support person that encourages me to dig deeper when I am up against it, triggered, or in an ineffective spin

  • I value having a coach to be accountable to, as I develop goals and take empowered action steps.

  • My coach is the safe place for me to give voice to, and grow my BIG dreams and plans.

  • My coach helps me clarify the direction I want to go, and the best next step to get there.

  • My coach keeps me on track when I want to squirrel out--they remind me of what I say I want.

  • I get amazing results, that I don't get on my own.
