To move the world we must first move ourselves
Life coaching prioritizes the present and focuses on helping clients get to where they want to go. Coaching is not like therapy or counselling that focuses on past issues or problems.
I help students and young adults find out what they are passionate about and how they can take action to live a life that is purposeful. Coaching helps students realize how their thoughts impact their actions and how they can change their actions by changing their thoughts.
As a coach, I do not tell students what to do or give advice. I use powerful questions, tools and techniques that help students think more deeply about who they are, where they want to go and how their personalities and motivational styles affect their choices. Increased self-awareness leads to emotional maturity and life skill development. Taking ownership is very powerful as this motivates students to make changes as they design action steps. A coach also holds students accountable to follow through on actions so that goals are achieved. Students decide the agenda and action, not the coach, and this is where the magic begins!
Coaches use their extensive training in life coaching as well as using techniques from the fields of sociology, psychology, neuroscience and career development.
