"I may not have all the answers but I have some really good questions."
What is Life Coaching?
The International Coach Federation (ICF) defines coaching as partnering with clients in a thought-provoking and creative process that inspires them to maximize their personal and professional potential.
What is a Life Coach?
A Life Coach – and specifically a Whole Person Coach – does not rely on a pre-defined definition of normalcy. The client informs the process and leads the way holistically. The coach uses powerful questioning to help the client recognize and leverage their strengths and resources then self-create their desired outcomes. Client-stated goals often address aspects of personal or professional development and improvement.
Unlike the therapist, upon whom patients often remain dependent for extended periods of time, a coach builds a client's capacity to be their own changemaker –exponentially, in every aspect of their life. A coach focuses on visioning and success in the present to move a client into the future.
Coaching relationships are shown to produce desired outcomes among well-functioning clients and do not involve the diagnosis or treatment of mental disorders as defined by the American Psychiatric Association. Nor is coaching a substitute for counseling, psychotherapy, psychoanalysis, mental health care, or substance abuse treatment.
What is Whole Person Coaching?
A holistic transformational learning process based on the premise that when a client comes to fully embody, embrace and express all aspects of their whole self (mental, emotional, physical, social, and spiritual) you are positioned to thrive in any aspect of life. You become rich in resources, grounded in your being, and at peace within.
