Coaching for the Overwhelmed
My goal as a coach is to help you cultivate the richness in your life to help you begin and sustain the transformation from the state of overwhelm to fulfillment. Together we will work to help you practice self-care, and the gain courage and a deep sense of purpose to open up to the experience of fulfillment. Fulfillment, practically understood, is a nourishing and consistent state of being that has room for all of life's emotions and experiences.
Here are some ways to know if you could benefit from my support:
- You long for change.
- You are chronically overworked.
- You are bored.
- You are overwhelmed from the stress of parenting.
- You feel out of place where you work.
We are likely a good fit for each other if one or more on the list below sounds like you!
- You are committed to creating change in your life, willing to do the hard work and take risks, and willing to be held accountable.
- You believe that sustainable change comes from the inside.
- You are inspired by nature.
- You enjoy playfulness and creativity.
- You love to bring seemingly disparate ideas together.
- You are simultaneously driven and very thoughtful.
- You are turned off by busyness as a status symbol.
There are boundless potential outcomes of our work together. Past clients have discovered a new calling, tapped into the resources at work as a way to create efficiency and have more family time, created ways of working that provides a regular income and time with their family, realized they don't have to go back to school to get what they want, deeply owned their sense of purpose that serves as a guiding north star -- just to name a few. Transforming overwhelm to fulfillment is a unique experience for everyone!
*My program is designed for moms, but works for anyone who wants to cultivate more fulfillment in their lives.
Here's how it works: I offer a complimentary 45 minute informational interview for every prospective client by phone. I will give you a taste of what it is like to be coached, and you can ask me any questions you have about what I offer: a transformative program that is designed to identify, experiment with, and integrate the fulfilling change you seek.
If we decide we are a fit for one another, I will send you an agreement for you to sign along with the information for our foundational session. I will ask that you return the agreement and make an initial payment before we begin.
COACHING, PSYCHOTHERAPY, AND CONSULTING: WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE?
Typically the difference between a coach and a therapist is that coaches focus on moving forward toward a desired change, and psychotherapists focus on healing the wounds of the past, with both practices utilizing knowledge of human behavior, motivation, behavioral change, and interactive counseling techniques. People who seek coaching are generally in good health and want to accelerate their personal growth, gain clarity, and deepen their relationship with their inner guidance. In contrast, psychotherapy is a health care service people seek out to restore their emotional selves back to health, and frequently reimbursable by insurance. Consultants are experts in a particular field who you hire to help you solve specific problems. A coach will never presume to be an expert on your life.
Coaches are not subject to government oversight. As a commitment to my clients and my integrity I adhere to the International Coaching Federation's Code of Ethics.
