What is Coaching?
Everyone has the skills and answers to achieve a thriving, passionate life. But, sometimes, we are stuck and need additional support and guidance to tap into our innate abilities and wisdom. My coaching is proactive, future-focused, and goal-oriented. We improve your strategies and skills to help you live a healthier and more joyous life.
How does it work?
We meet one-on-one in a safe space to have a confidential conversation in which we work together to clarify your goals, to understand what you have tried that has been helpful and not helpful, to learn new skills and tools, and to determine a plan to achieve better well-being. We work in a collaborative relationship to help you maximize your personal and professional potential. We meet as often and as frequently as you need. The goal of coaching is to not need further coaching but to provide you with the life skills to move forward with more well-being and contentment in your life.
Who is it for?
Coaching is not therapy. Coaching is for those who are "doing well enough" but would like to feel more fulfilled and more joy in their life. Wellness coaching can be a good fit if you are considering changes to optimize personal health and wellness, looking to positively shift certain aspects of your life, or simply feeling stuck. Coaching is forward-focused and helps you go from "well enough" to a thriving and rich life. In contrast, therapy tends to work to understand the past and apply this knowledge to the present, help heal pain and trauma, and to improve mental health conditions, such as anxiety and depression.
The relationship with your coach is fundamental to your success. You need to feel that your coach hears you and can help you move forward. If you want to know more about coaching and to see if there is a good fit with me, please contact me so that we can talk and you can learn more about my style.
Thrive can provide group coaching to a small group of individuals (e.g., 2-4 friends, colleagues, or relatives) that have shared well-being goals, such as incorporating more mindfulness or exercise in their lives.
