Why does coaching work?

You already have your own built-in wisdom and job is to help you rediscover it and unleash it. Life coaching is not like therapy - it does not spend time looking at your past, but rather at your present and your future and helps you find the steps you need to guide you forward toward achieving greater balance, fulfillment, happiness, and personal growth. It is less about where you've been, and more about where you want to go. 
Life coaching does not give you all the answers…what it does do is ask the right questions to help you find your own answers. Then it helps you take action.  It works with you to create the life you want to live.

How do I work with my coach?

You generally meet with your coach either two or three times per month by phone.  Each session is about 45 minutes and focuses on the topics of your choosing. You and your coach decide on some action steps to take in between calls to move you along toward your goals. Coaching fees are paid on a per month basis, and appointments are scheduled in advance.

What will my coach do?

Listen - Your coach provides a safe, non-judgmental space for you to express yourself. Your coach has no agenda other than to support the exploration and expansion of your potential.

Share - After you have fully communicated your thoughts and issues, your coach will share advice, ideas, comments, and views on your situation.

Endorse - Everyone needs an outside voice of endorsement, compassion, motivation, and acknowledgment. Your coach provides reinforcement when you're on the right track, and suggestions for improvement when you're stuck. This is very effective when it comes from an objective “outsider” who only has your progress and personal success as the goal.

Suggest - Your coach wants only the best for you, enabling you to reach your full potential as a human being. A coach wants you to live a life that excites and fulfills you. With that objective, your coach may make suggestions and requests that support your goals and your growth.

Strategize - Your coach has been professionally trained to help you create a plan that incorporates strategies and actions that will help you reach your goals. Together, the two of you will create a strategy to help you make significant, permanent improvements in your life.

The opportunity to be coached by Dee has changed the quality of my life.  As a mother of four children ranging in age from 3 to 15,  I chose to put my family first not realizing that by doing this I was putting myself last. 

Through coaching, I have learned that when I pay attention to my needs and values, I can create a life that fulfills me and therefore blesses my family.  It is the best gift I have given my family.  I make choices to fill myself with what truly makes me feel like I am living and not just existing...a difference I could never live without now! 

Thank you Dee!
