What is Life Coaching

“Everyone has been made for some particular work, and the desire for that work has been put in every heart.” – Rumi

Inside all of us is a powerful spark of the divine – and yet, as life’s challenges grind and wear us down, many of us forget that inner spark. However, that spark never leaves us – and if we stray too far from it, we will be unhappy in our life.

As a life coach, my “particular work” is about helping my clients to rediscover their spark. I believe that you hold all the answers to all the questions in your life and that you are already equipped to claim everything that you dream of.

You are, in other words, the true expert in the room! My passion and professional calling is to help you by guiding you to the right questions and then equip you with the tools, knowledge, and techniques you need to best tackle issues in your life and enact true spiritual and personal growth

One thing that life coaching is not, is therapy. While therapy and life coaching complement each other very well, coaching is more focused on helping you to develop a strategic toolset to move forward in life.

We make choices every day – life coaching is a choice that helps you to make mindful choices, conscious of the effect they will have on your life as a whole. In turn, you start building the foundations for a balanced life that fulfills your deepest needs, giving you the happiness that you may feel is missing at the moment.

Extraordinary Goal Setting Coaching

You could say that the whole human endeavour is geared towards setting and achieving goals. Goals are part of every aspect of life: how you conduct your relationships, what you want to achieve at work, the way you use your spare time…

Everything comes down to priorities, and what you would like to accomplish in every aspect – whether you make a conscious choice or go with subconscious preferences.

Without setting goals or objectives, life becomes a series of chaotic happenings you don’t control. You become the plaything of coincidence.

Accomplishments like sending someone to the moon, inventing the iPod etcetera are the result of a goal that was set at some point. A vision that was charted and realized.

Time Management Coaching

Time management” is the process of organizing and planning how to divide your time between specific activities. Good time management enables you to work smarter – not harder – so that you get more done in less time, even when time is tight and pressures are high. Failing to manage your time damages your effectiveness and causes stress.

It seems that there is never enough time in the day. But, since we all get the same 24 hours, why is it that some people achieve so much more with their time than others? The answer lies in good time management.
The highest achievers manage their time exceptionally well. By using the time-management techniques in this series, you can improve your ability to function more effectively – even when time is tight and pressures are high

Self Discovery Coaching

Self discovery should be an important goal for everyone. Some people go through life playing a role to mask who they really are. Others simply become what others want them to be.

“Know thyself” is a classic platitude that continues to offer a valuable reminder today. It is only through the discovery of self that we can identify our purpose and actualize our potential.

On the other hand, failure to embark on a pilgrimage of self discovery will cheat us of the opportunity to understand who we are and what we want out of life, as well as how we can help others during our time on this earth.
The journey of self discovery is like no other trip you will ever take. It is immensely exciting and satisfying to learn something that you did not know about yourself before.

Balance and Self-care Coaching

Self care.  It gets preached a lot, but often just talked about with no real plan for doing it. As you ask yourself “How do I find my balance in life?  Consider the notion that self-care is an integral part of this.

Balancing work and career, family, a social life, physical needs, and mental health is no easy feat. It’s very easy to get out of balance in our lives! Still, when you look around, you’ll notice that those who are truly happy also usually live the most balanced lives. At the heart of this is self-care.

Think of it this way: How in the world can you be at your best to take care of other things and people if you don’t first take care of yourself? The people who count on you (your family, co-workers, friends, etc.) need you to do this! Stop for a minute. Please read this paragraph again. Think about it.

My Passion & My Approach

My passion is also my life purpose: to help people like you to get unstuck, rediscover their life purpose, and then create an actionable plan to effect real personal growth.

As spiritual beings living a material existence, our happiness is not dependent on what we have, but who we are.

Rather than advocate a specific religious approach, I present a holistic spiritual toolkit that draws upon eastern philosophy and our inner divine spirit to effect genuine progress and change.

My approach is derived from over a decade of extensive training covering many disciplines which integrate the holistic unity of mind, body, and spirit. In practice, this means combining Bhakti yoga philosophy and wisdom, Ayurvedic science, mindfulness, neuro-linguistic programming, time management, and goal settings.

I offer a safe, respectful, and comfortable environment for all my clients. We are on an incredible journey together, and I want all clients to feel supported. I am not here to push you to your limits or punish you but instead to celebrate and commiserate with you on your path to a happy and fulfilling life.

Most of all, I believe in the healing power of laughter, and its powerful restorative properties. It’s important to remember that life should be fun and playful at its heart and that we are on a joyful journey of personal growth and discovery.

So while the work we will do together is serious, that does not mean that we cannot have a little fun along the way!

Who is coaching for?

Coaching is for everyone – and it is becoming increasingly popular today as people realize the immense benefit they can get from getting professional guidance in their quest for self-improvement.

Just like sports coaches help athletes to better their game by improving their technical performance and physical abilities, trained life coaches can help you to quickly identify and start working on areas of your life where you desire improvement

In addition to experienced support and professional guidance, people who see life coaches also gain the benefit of a motivating cheerleader.

As coaches, we’re there to push you toward your best self, but also there to give you the support you need when things get tough.

You can go it alone – there is no right or wrong way – but a coach will help to accelerate the process and build on your personal growth and development faster.

If you are already reading this page, then coaching may just be exactly what your soul is gently pushing you toward.

Life Coaching: What can you expect?

As a life coach, the core of my job is based on helping you to look at your life objectively, pinpoint issues in key areas of your life and then create a plan that resolves those issues

My holistic approach means that you should expect a positive experience that is focused on helping you to make internal changes for constructive, life-long personal growth.  All sessions are confidential and non-judgmental: the purpose is to explore what is holding you back and develop a lasting strategy to combat them effectively.

What you will not experience is a pressure to take action before you are ready, motivated, and committed to making a difference in your life.  Instead, I aim to empower you by transforming your outlook, uplifting your energy levels, rediscovering your stability, and experiencing the joy of living a fulfilled life.

While the experience varies from person to person, my job is to help you to experience greater personal growth and work toward the life that you deserve – nothing more and nothing less.
