Are You Ready To Live A Life Of Meaning, Purpose And Joy?
Do you have a clear goal in mind, but can’t gather the motivation or confidence to take the steps to achieve it? Do you often feel like you’re stuck in mud, spinning your wheels and getting nowhere? Maybe you feel trapped in a relationship, career or responsibilities that are no longer fulfilling. Perhaps you long to make a significant change, but feel uncomfortable breaking free from the role you’ve played and rules you’ve followed for more years than you can remember. It may be that you feel certain that there must be a more meaningful and purposeful way to live. Does it feel like years of playing it safe have whittled away your self-confidence and ability to take risks? Do you worry that you’ve lost your efficacy in the world? Are you longing to figure out what is keeping you stuck and foster the confidence, motivation and inspiration needed to step into your full potential?
Feeling stuck and unhappy in a relationship, career or in life in general can be frustrating, saddening and discouraging experience. It may be that how you’re spending your time is out of alignment with your core values, beliefs and life goals. You may be blaming external forces and feeling trapped. Or, you may be pointing the finger inward, desperately wanting to make significant changes in your life, and beating yourself up for not knowing where or how to start. You might wonder how you got to where you are now and if living a spontaneous, authentic life is even possible. Even if your life is going okay and you feel generally content, perhaps you can’t shake the feeling that there must be a bigger, brighter and better way of living.
Making An Empowered Change Is Possible
If you’re feeling stuck or trapped in one or many aspects of your life, you are not alone. We all hit periods of time when we’re either forced or inspired to revisit and/or reassess our values, wants, needs, desires and goals. It’s not uncommon to suddenly feel stuck or realize that you’ve been feeling trapped in an unfulfilling life situation for years. Like so many others, you might realize the need for change in your life. The problem, however, is that even with a solid idea of who you are and where you want to go, you might be unsure of where to start and how to effectively get there.
This is where life coaching can help. A life coach can help people who are looking for something different than traditional talk therapy. This type of coaching is generally geared toward those who have a higher level of personal insight and want to identify and address blocks so they can take their lives to the next level. And, this highly introspective and active work is present and future oriented and specifically tailored to meet your specific needs. With the guidance and support of a skilled life coach, you can affect positive change in your life and in the lives of those around you; reach your personal, professional and creative potential; and be an active participant in the trajectory of your future.
Getting Unstuck Coaching Can Help You Become An Active Agent Of Change
Rather than continue to focus on what is keeping you stuck and unfulfilled in your life, getting unstuck coaching helps you take an empowered and active path to becoming the agent of change in your own life. It can help you repurpose your time and energy so you can connect to your true purpose, create new patterns of living, move toward actualizing your goals and realize your potential.
In life coaching sessions, I can help you clarify what and who is important to you. As we explore what resonates with you, we can collaboratively create a game plan that helps you actively affect change in your life and realize your goals. We can look at present and potential barriers and develop strategies you can use to best navigate challenges and set your future self up for success. Clearly defining your values is an important part of the self-growth and self-actualization process. Our core values are what intrinsically motivate us, and it can be helpful to come back to them when you’re in need of an inspiration boost and/or frustrated by life’s inevitable roadblocks.
In coaching sessions, we’ll also identify the strengths and resources you can build upon and draw from. We’ll work on awareness training, engage in ongoing value clarification exercises and develop active strategies you can apply to put your goals into action. I can help you break down big goals into small, actionable steps and experiment with behavior changes that lead to notable results. You can also develop important skills and tools that can help you achieve the success that you define as important to you now and in the future.
With the support and guidance of a skilled personal coach and a willingness to self-explore and take suitable risks, you can become the agent of change in your own life. You can develop a greater sense of competency, efficacy and capability, which will naturally lead to increased confidence and personal fulfillment. Through the coaching process, getting unstuck truly is possible. You can foster a new perspective on yourself and the life you create and live with vitality and meaning.
You still may have questions or concerns about reaching goals through life coaching…
I’m not sure if I could be best helped through therapy or coaching. What’s the difference?
In therapy, we tend to dig into the past, whereas coaching sessions focus on defining goals and actionable steps you can take as you move into the future. Rather than spending energy healing old wounds, in coaching sessions, I help you create new experiences, opportunities, insights and perspective, which inevitably leads to increased resiliency and empowerment as you travel forward on your life path.
I’m not sure how I’d work coaching sessions into my busy schedule.
How often we meet is totally up to you, and we can work together to custom-create a meeting schedule and coaching plan that accommodates your busy life. Also, coaching sessions are typically done remotely, so you can save on travel time and meet from the comfort of your home or office.
How are you qualified to act as my coach?
Before entering the coaching and counseling field, I worked at a Fortune 500 company as a Human Resources representative for 17 years. During that time, I worked with people from the day they were hired until the day they retired. I received top-notch training and invaluable experience as I helped support people in reaching their full potential. Along the way, I earned a Masters degree in Counseling and became a Board Certified Coach (BCC). I bring to the table a diversity of skills and experience as well as advanced formal training and education.
