“Mindfulness is not about becoming a different person, new person, or a better person. It is about training in awareness and understanding of how and why you think and feel the way you do and getting a healthy sense of perspective in the process. It just so happens that when you do, any changes you want to make in life become that much more feasible.”
— Jon Kabat-Zinn
The true teacher is within us. A good teacher is someone who can help you to go back and touch the true teacher within, because you already have the insight within you. - Thich Nhat Hanh
My goal is to help people discover their inner strength and power through mindfulness coaching.
I believe that each person has the ability to create positive changes in their life and that mindfulness coaching is an important tool to help them reach their goals. Using a variety of coaching tools and techniques my coaching empowers clients to discover the answers within, creating clarity and thus taking action to achieve their goals as they evolve and enhance their lives. I strive to bring peace, balance and clarity to my clients, helping them to find their true potential and live life to the fullest.
My method of coaching is called "co-active coaching" which means that you and I are equal, active collaborators. As your coach/mentor I will help you move beyond self-limiting thoughts and behaviors by asking the hard questions and empowering you to find those answers within yourself. My job to support you to make the changes needed to achieve the outcomes you desire
Together, we'll determine where you are today, uncover the obstacles or challenges that are standing between you and your vision and develop steps and actions to overcome those challenges. You'll learn how to better focus on the here and now and be encouraged to celebrate all of your values, skills, strengths and talents. You'll also learn how to use the process of inquiry to reconnect to your most authentic self.
Our relationship is built on a foundation of trust and confidentiality and it's that foundation, along with the commitment you make to coaching, that can promote the lasting change and growth you seek.
I will serve as a guide, teacher, mentor and partner supporting you to live your life on purpose, helping you identify and work through the barriers that prevent you from living a mindful life of personal integrity.
How does it work?
Each coaching relationship is unique in that it is designed to fit each person’s particular needs, objectives, preferences and learning style. I will meet you where you are on your path and help you develop the skills to live your life mindfully and on purpose.
Our first meeting is a Discovery Session. Once you decide that coaching is for you, we will schedule a Discovery Session. During this two-hour session we clarify values, beliefs and intentions. We will also design our partnership and co-create foundational understandings and guiding principles to support you in reaching your goals.
For our next session, we explore your core values and look at the obstacles that have been holding you back from feeling at peace. These can be inner obstacles, like unhelpful core beliefs or ineffective strategies. Sometimes there are obstacles outside yourself that need to be dealt with before you can move forward.
In sessions going forward we continue to uncover and work through obstacles and learn new strategies to deal with obstacles– both inner and outer. When you learn how to do things differently, you get better results.
One of the benefits of having a coach is to act as your accountability partner, keeping you motivated, until you are able to keep yourself motivated. After each session we'll decide on an action or an inquiry with accountability.
This is your invitation to find clarity in yourself and in your relationships. I offer private and group classes, as well as one-on-one sessions.
I welcome an opportunity to help you identify and refine your goals, develop effective strategies for reaching them, and to inspire you to create your life with passion and excitement.
