Our lives are not comprised of only one journey, but, in fact, many voyages that together, lead to our ultimate destiny and fulfillment. Our challenge in life is to set the right course at each life stage, and know when and how to correct the course if an unexpected event happens.
If you want meaningful changes in your life but don’t know where to begin, coaching could be your answer. Coaching is a powerful discipline that guides you through the process of discovery, goal setting and action to help you realize and capitalize on your hidden potential. Together, we will disempower your self-limiting thoughts and behaviors and develop an action plan to get you on achieving your longstanding goals.

Frequently Asked Questions
How is coaching different from therapy?
Coaching is not therapy, although therapy is extremely helpful and valuable for some individuals. Coaching is for those that are 40 Pillarsted to change their situation and are future-focused. Therapy concentrates on unraveling past events and wounds that are impacting your current state-of-mind. Coaching is more action-oriented and focuses on where you are today and how to reach your goals. With a coach, you will develop tactics to break down current unproductive, self-sabotaging behaviors and perceptions, (of yourself and others). You will then be free to courageously start taking steps towards your desired future. Coaching proceeds further with the coach and client collaborating on an action plan to achieve the stated goals. The coach will then hold the client accountable to that mutually agreed upon plan. The plan can be adjusted, if necessary, to ensure that it continues to direct the client towards the desired goal.

Who is a candidate for coaching?
Coaching is for those individuals who are at a crossroads in life; whether it is professionally or personally. They know a change is needed to move forward to be happier and more fulfilled, but they haven’t been able to act upon it. To make coaching effective, the individual must be open to considering new perspectives and strategies and must be ready to take bold action (not just talk about it) in order to achieve the desired outcomes.
How long does coaching take?
Coaching does not accomplish everything immediately, although significant progress can be made in one session. Depending on the topic, coaching can take a couple of sessions to tackle a short-term goal, or it can take longer if the goal is major and/or you are less clear about your desires. In that case, it can take a few sessions to determine what you want and why you have yet to achieve it. We will explore what historically have been your obstacles, both external and self-inflicted, and how they can be approached differently to finally overcome them. The pace at which progress is made is entirely up to you.
