Life Coaching aims to help clients gain insight into their difficulties or distress, establish a greater understanding of their motivation, and enable them to find more appropriate ways of coping or bring about changes in their thinking and behavior.
Life Coaching involves exploring feelings, beliefs, thoughts and relevant events, sometimes from childhood and personal history, in a structured way with someone trained to help you do it safely.
Depending on the nature of your problem, therapy can be short or long term. Sessions can be provided for adults, on a one-to-one basis, or for couples, families and within groups whose members share similar problems.

Coaching vs. Therapy
Coaching works best for people who have already resolved past issues and are ready for the next level in their career or life. Therapy focuses on processing “PAST issues” and is less action oriented. Coaching is about living in the “present” and taking action to create magical futures. A coach will hold you accountable. On occasion, I utilize the skill of “process coaching” to allow a client to work through a place of “stuckness” or emotional overwhelm. However, the emphasis is on forwarding the action and deepening the client’s learning. And, while attentive listening are central to both, coaching and therapy are quite different.
Coaching vs. Consulting
Coaching is client directed. Consulting is consultant directed. My agenda in coaching is to support your agenda, not a specific cookie-cutter program. In coaching you design the Primary Focus of the relationship. I believe that my clients are whole, resourceful and creative. Through powerful questions, our designed alliance and YOU, we’ll tap your internal wisdom. I will sometimes advise a client, and make programs available to my clients, but the focus is on challenging you to discover the answers you seek, embrace your innate wisdom and to empower you to choose and create what you most desire.
