Life coaching is a relatively new service which is experiencing extraordinary growth. It is for individuals and businesses who want to make positive changes. Instead of reacting to change as it comes upon you, coaching is about being intentional in choosing and navigating your direction. I believe that the process of change is the same, regardless of the issue. Whether it be weight loss, communication skills, stress management, fitness, or learning to play the harmonica, there are defined steps that help move us forward. As partners in the life coaching relationship, we will work through those steps together. It provides a structured way for you to examine your life more regularly, systematically and objectively than you would on your own...and then for you to reach the goals that you want!
Who needs a life coach?
Anyone who wants help in defining their direction and then bridging the gap between where they are and where they want to go. Just as an athlete may hire a coach to help with skill, strength, performance, or mental training, many individuals and businesses in Austin, TX are seeking life coaching for similar reasons.
Coaching is for people who are basically mentally and emotionally well-functioning.
How does life coaching work?
I conduct life coaching through face to face sessions (50 minutes), supplemented by texts and e mail. The general process often goes like this: First, we come to a clear understanding of what you want to accomplish. Often, I use assessments that will provide insight and help you be specific about the changes you want to make. Coaching provides accountability for clients, empowering them to follow through. I will be a thought partner, joining you in pursuing the growth that you want. I will listen, question, probe, gently nudge, assign homework – all in the process of helping to provide clarity, focus and support for achieving your life and work goals. The length of the coaching process varies depending on the issues, but three months is a typical time period.
How much does it cost?
My fee is $100 per 50 minute session.
