Life Coaching

Holistic Life Coaching is an integrated approach to whole-person health and wellness. Whether you are seeking greater success in your work/career life, or wanting to see more meaning in your personal world; life coaching can assist you. When you set a goal for yourself, you begin to see more of what you could be. Why not bring a whole, healthy self along into that vision! The ICF (International Coach Federation) defines Professional Coaching as:

"Coaching supports personal and professional growth and development based on individual-initiated change in pursuit of specific actionable outcomes. These outcomes are linked to personal or professional success. Coaching is forward moving and future focused. Partnering with clients in a thought-provoking and creative process that inspires them to maximize their personal and professional potential. Coaching honors the client as the expert in his/her life and work and believes that every client is creative, resourceful, and whole. Standing on this foundation, the coach's responsibility is to:
  • Discover, clarify, and align with what the client wants to achieve;
  • Encourage client self-discovery;
  • Elicit client-generated solutions and strategies; and
  • Hold the client responsible and accountable.

Coaches are trained to listen, to observe and to customize their approach to individual client needs. They seek to elicit solutions and strategies from the client; they believe the client is naturally creative and resourceful. The coach's job is to provide support to enhance the skills, resources, and creativity that the client already has. 

Coaching is a life-enhancing service, much like hiring a personal trainer for your whole self. It is not usually covered under insurance plans, as it is about improving and enhancing your life versus healing pain.
