Though I am trained as a therapist, I call myself a coach.
As a coach, I consider it my job to...
1. Explore your gifts.
What are you best at? What could you be best in the world at? What do you love love love to do with your time? How do you want to feel?
2.. Support my clients in discovering what it is that they care most about.
What do you value? What do you love to share? What do you love to learn about?
3. Habituate a lifestyle around allowing those values to express.
It is my job to help you express who you are and what you care about through the gifts that are unique to you in this life. Do you value health? Relationship? Leisure? Business? Once we define what you care about we can start to play with defining how you believe you would feel if you had what you wanted. If you know how you would feel you can determine which activities already make you feel that way. I.e. If my business was supporting me financially I would feel proud and accomplished. I now feel proud and accomplished when I complete my workout routine. Therefore, I want to habituate my workout routine into my daily life (6 days a week). Thus, I begin to feel the sensations of pride and accomplishment more often.
4. Define what the difficult points are. We all have unconscious patterning and we will all hits bumps in the road.
In my mind, emotion is easily translated to “energy in motion.” Whether it is anxiety, self doubt, hopelessness, despair or anger, as humans, we contain the full spectrum within us. I teach that if we can love all our parts then we can use them as the very fuel that makes life so beautiful.
5. It is my job to help you continue to find the channels for moving emotion, rough patches, and chaos in a way that supports your thriving (rather than destroys you or throws you).
Since you have been alive a little while I know you have strategies - some that are super effective - and some that have more difficult consequences - that you use to self soothe and care for yourself. If you can master the art of creating an alliance with your emotions you can use them to support you in creating a life that you love.
