What is a Professional Life Coach?
A Professional Life Coach is a trusted mentor and partner in your process who can help you identify and uncover what keeps you from reaching your fullest potential. It is a one-on-one relationship that provides a supportive and non-judgmental space to help you create what you want for yourself. Sessions with a Life Coach help you come up with strategies and tools you need to achieve your goals. They consist of steps to help you identify, re-pattern and re-frame your thoughts and attitudes. Life Coaching can also help you break negative habits, acquire greater momentum and life purpose, and take action to achieve your maximum potential!

Do I really need a personal Coach, can’t I just do it by myself?
Life coaching can take you above and beyond your own personal limitations. More often than not, people try to achieve their greatest potential, but don’t even realize what stands in their way. A personal Coach can offer an unbiased and objective perspective, and can help you realize your patterns, habits and stumbling blocks. Most people experience that they are more efficient and energized when working with a Professional Life Coach as a partner in the process, and that this provides the opportunity for them to better realize their potential. Life coaching can make your dreams attainable and will give you the support and encouragement you need along the way as you are integrating change.
How is Coaching different from Therapy? How does Resonance Repatterning help in Life Coaching?
While the life coaching I provide can be therapeutic, it is not therapy. Coaching is distinct from traditional therapy because it is not designed to just focus on psychological issues. While emotional issues may arise, the primary focus of life coaching is to help you identify your goals, identify the steps to build the bridge, and develop constructive, life-enhancing habits and skills to achieve them. The focus is on creating positive change at the core level for greatest success. Resonance Repatterning is a process that helps identify limitations, and helps you to become more present to your life free of stumbling blocks from the past. This process is a wonderful tool that helps you achieve your positive intentions when you need it most!

How long do people generally work with a Life Coach?
To experience the effectiveness of a life coaching program, I suggest clients make an initial three-month commitment. It takes three months to integrate the changes necessary for new thinking and action. At the end of the three months, we will evaluate progress and discuss options for continued coaching.
Is personal life coaching confidential?
What we discuss will be held in confidence and not shared with others. However, our discussions are not privileged for legal purposes. The privilege of confidentiality that exists for the clergy, therapists and attorneys is not granted to coaching professionals. That said, life coaching is a confidential process, and your personal information will always be protected.
