I am well suited to assist and support you in adopting a healthy lifestyle that is sustainable. It is not about dieting but rather about mindset. I do not take a cookie cutter approach to coaching.

3 sessions, 0h 55 each

I provide a safe place for my clients to explore who they really are. The basis of my practice is to actively listen to my clients, providing the ideal environment to get to the heart of the matter. Coaching is an effective approach to uncover belief systems, then focus on the transformation of your thoughts into action and measurable results. I am not an expert on your life. I don't know what is best for you nor do I think I do. My expertise is in listening. I listen for your greatness, your blocks, your beliefs, your wants, needs, unmet needs, goals and aspirations. I am listening to your "mental construct" or “personal operating system”. These are the tools I use to support you in achieving a higher level of self-awareness.

If you would like an accountability partner, we can co-create action steps that will bring you closer to your stated goal(s). We then can create success metrics so you will be able to measure your progress. The partnership will be stimulating and fun.

We capitalize on your strengths and expand upon them. My clients decide if they want to hear external suggestions or not. If you decide you would like my suggestions in a particular situation, I am happy to provide them. Or we will collaborate in brainstorming options and problem solving. We then will take the co-creative relationship to the next level where we collaborate in determining the next best step to take to solve the situation.

If, on the other hand, you prefer to take it one step at a time and have me use more traditional coaching skills to guide you towards your own ideas and solutions, I will let you have the space you need and will be your guide with powerful and direct questions. The choice is yours. Either way, I will be on your side, on your team, and you can decide to change our approach at anytime.

My coaching method & approach

When delivering "life coaching" the wisdom comes from my client. When delivering "mentor coaching", the wisdom comes from me.
