How Coaching Works

I tailor my approach to your individual needs and goals. Sessions are based on a continual process of assessment, goal setting, action steps and back to assessment. 

Individual coaching may be done by phone, skype or you may choose to do it in person. I do offer group coaching in the form of a small group setting (see next section). Individual sessions are optimal when they are held two times a month. I’ve found that these frequencies allow us to properly track and support the realization of your hopes and dreams.


Individuals seek coaching to address their personal goals.  Goals are defined with the help of the coach and then specific changes are tracked, adjusted and celebrated. The process or journey may uncover some belief's that need to be adjusted or left behind while new beliefs take hold and establish a new way of approaching the goal. 


Coaching is available in different settings:


One-on One


Coaching often begins when a person realizes they can talk to someone who will help them get from A to B with support and accountability for specific actions that move them closer to the life they imagined.  Coaching calls can be hosted by phone or skype or in person at a time that is mutually beneficial. 


Group Coaching

Group coaching is done by telephone conference or as a follow through from a Seminar I conduct. The groups are coached on a weekly basis for 50 minutes. Each group consists of people of all ages but with the same goal. The commitment is open-ended in the same manner as individual coaching. Some advantages of group coaching are the creation of a support system, deep self-awareness, a safe environment for experiments, multiple perspectives and passive learning.  Participants focus on openess and athenticity.

How Long Is the Process?

Coaching deals with an intentional change of your beliefs. The change then is noticable to others when you function out of your new understanding. This does not happen from one day to the next, but over time. Some clients make coaching an integral part of their life. But perhaps right now you are only seeking help for a specific situation. That’s fine. We recommend 9-18 months in order to see lasting change.


Example of belief change: Sam grew up in a religious home and was constantly reminded of how inadequate he was.  He believed he was useless and had nothing to offer others. As he re-discovered his heart and realized he was not only very valuable but had delightful abilities and dreams, he began ministering to the poor and needy in his neighborhood.  His friends saw his confidence and joy as he embraced his heart and found a way to express it in meaningful ways no longer limited by his negative and hurtful vison of himself.
