My Service Commitment

As a Spiritual Life Coach, I believe our spiritual health is at the heart of whatever we want to create in our life. When we can trust our inner spirit or what some call our intuition, we can create our lives in miraculous ways.

I’m committed to providing a coaching service that allows you to create a life you love using a model of living judgment-free that’s profoundly transformed my life, and the lives of my clients.

 

Common challenges my clients face:

  • A desire for more intimacy, authenticity or connection in their relationships
  • A seeking of fulfillment or purpose in their work life or career
  • A perfectionist approach that creates unnecessary stress
  • A high level of productivity, but accompanied with anxiety, and insufficient sleep
  • A desire to achieve more balance in all the areas of life especially health and relationships or family and career
  • Navigating difficult conflicts
  • Making love work spontaneously, but with a solid foundation for any relationship: with a parent, teen, colleague, spouse, friend

What is coaching?

A coach’s role is to focus, question, push, cheer, support, and ask more of you than you ask of yourself. I will challenge, inspire, share, and find out what’s holding you back so you can push forward to your next level. Through the process of coaching, clients deepen their understanding, raise their level of consciousness, improve their desired results, and enhance their quality of life.

In each session, the client chooses the focus of conversation, while the coach listens and contributes observations and powerful questions. This interaction creates clarity, action, and shifts the client forward. Coaching moves the client from where they are to where they want to be by focusing on what matters, revealing blind spots and creating awareness of choices not previously available.

One of my coaches once told me something I’ll never forget: “you don’t help anyone as a coach. That’s not your job” Instead what we do as powerful coaches is get clients to help themselves through higher self-awareness, and self-reliance so their dreams can be realized.

What Coaching is Not

There is often confusion between coaching, counselling, consulting and mentoring. It’s important to understand the distinctions between these four unique approaches.
Each approach is highly valuable and worthwhile. While they all may have some common threads each one addresses a different need.

How is coaching different than counselling or therapy?

Counselling, or therapy, often looks to the past in order to discover, heal and understand. Coaching, on the other hand, looks to the future in order to make a good life even better. In coaching, the starting point is the client’s desire for personal and professional success. Coaching focuses on forwarding the areas of the client’s life they want to enhance or transform. Coaching is less about how you came to be who you are, but rather who you are now, and getting you from today to a future you desire.

How is coaching different than consulting?

A consultant is an expert who provides advice and solutions. The consultant imparts knowledge and offers suggestions to improve effectiveness and increase success. With a background as a finance professional who grew up in a dominant medical family (grandfather, parents, aunts & uncles), I am a problem solver, analytical-minded, and results-oriented. Over the past decade I’ve spent countless hours learning, researching, and immersing myself in programs, and some of my insights, and teachings have proven valuable to clients. Whatever material is relevant to a client’s agenda, I will share as a complement to my coaching service.

How is coaching different than mentoring?

A mentor often has many more years of experience than the person being supported. Mentoring is akin to role-modeling – the client sees attributes, qualities or abilities in the mentor that he or she wishes to learn or emulate.
Coaching is a partnering of two equals, which focuses on the unique and intrinsic qualities already within the client that may not be recognized or appreciated. The coach helps the client affirm and embrace their own true self.

What is Co-Active Coaching?

Co-active Coaching works on the premise that no other person can ever know enough about you to decide for you better than you can decide for yourself. The primary need of most people is not for the advice or direction of others. Rather, the primary need of most people is for clarification of their own feelings, and thoughts. Co-active coaching is a way to stretch out of your comfort zone to self-discover, and grow in the direction you want to go.

The second assumption of co-active coaching is that you are intrinsically creative, resourceful and whole. Coaches act on the premise that the definitive expert regarding your life and work is you, but through the co-creative process of the coach-client relationship – the whole becomes greater than the sum of the parts.

Why Coach at all?

Coaching is a way to for you to discover, with the aid of a trained coach, what you deeply value, need and truly desire out of your one precious life.

Spiritual life coaching is an approach that includes aspects of consulting, mentoring, and counselling, but with one primary goal: to discover, and live in alignment with your soul’s wisdom.

“Knowing thyself is the beginning of wisdom”. ~Socrates

The spiritual journey is about honouring who you are.
