Why Hire a Life Coach?

The Short Answer: Talk to Someone Who Listens.

Now the long answer...

Coaching IS:

  • a co-creative dynamic talk about your personal and professional goals

  • a neutral place for conversations focused on you

  • discovering your own solutions

  • having an accountability partner

  • a motivation source

How many times have you felt stuck, and only after talking to someone, you were able to pinpoint solutions that lead to a positive change? Voicing our thoughts and feelings can have a significant impact on transformation. A professionally trained coach can help you be more aware and set action plans.​

Coaching IS NOT:

  • therapy or counseling

  • healing

  • consulting or advising

Coaching should NEVER be equated or replace mental health help. If you struggle with mental health issues such as anxiety, depression, PTSD, addictions, trauma, eating disorders, or any other mental illness, please do not look for a coach to address them, but seek a doctor, psychiatrist, psychologist, counselor, therapist - mental healthcare professionals. And please discuss with them if working with a coach would be beneficial to you. I am not a mental health care provider, nor will I present myself as such.

In moments of crisis or difficult times such as divorce and grief, some healing is commonly needed. In that case, Life Coaching is not adequate because it does not help heal the past and it is not a form of treatment. That should be done previously. Sometimes, it can be done simultaneously while seeing a therapist or counselor - if they believe Coaching can be a good complement for you. You must be really ready to focus on the present and plan for the future in Coaching.

In the same manner, if you are looking for someone to give you guidance and answers to your questions in an advising capacity, a consultant is the pro you most likely need. My job is to help empower YOU to find the answers within yourself.
