Coaching in general:
Coaching is no different than any other relationship. You need to find a good match and work at it. Just because a coach was effective at coaching one person doesn't mean that coach is the best fit for you. If you are not willing to work a coach can't help you. It doesn't matter how good they are.
Find a life coach that deals with the topics you want to work on. There are many websites online where you can search for coaches based on your needs. Some coaches specialize and others are general. Most coaches get certified but even though I am also I believe its more important to find a match and get RESULTS! Thats why you should do some homework before deciding.
Find someone who you can afford. Most coaches offer free consultation and/or package deals. While I believe coaching is money well spent. I also believe, especially with today's economically tough times, that you shouldn't go broke getting a life coach. Your insurance probably will not cover coaching unless its with a mental health practitioner. Check with your provider to see if there are options that work for you.
I truly believe that the greatest gift I have to offer is to serve my fellow human beings. I have dedicated my entire life to service. As a Certified Professional Coach I am dedicated to honest and straightforward communication. I am willing to enter into an ongoing relationship with you committed to assisting you in (but not limited to) career development, relationship enhancement, spiritual growth, lifestyle management, life balance, decision making, and achieving short-term or long-term goals. This typically involves brainstorming, values clarification, the completion of written assignments, education, goal-setting, identifying plans of action, accountability, making requests, agreements to change behavior, examining lifestyles, and questioning.
I offer a completely free consultation and sliding fees scale depending on your coaching needs.
