What is Coaching?

Coaching is an evidence-based process that helps you get from where you are to where you want to be.

Coaching is very individualized and is different from consulting, mentoring or therapy. It holds to the premise that you are the expert in your own life and have the answers within you. An ICF credentialed coach knows how to help you access that inner expert. If a coach wears more than one hat, such as coaching and mentoring, the coach and client agree on expectations for the relationship and how to use each session, and when a coaching session is in progress, it is coaching. A coach certified by the ICF (International Coach Federation) is an expert in assisting you to find your answers while adhering to the core coaching competencies and a professional code of ethics. The best way to understand what coaching is is to experience it first hand in a complimentary session. 

The International Coach Federation Explains Coaching

Certified ICF coaches have gone through rigorous training, as well as extensive supervision, mentoring and examinations before being awarded with an ICF credential.

International Coach Federation certified, I'm comfortable conducting sessions via Skype or phone and have served clients in the United Kingdom, Scotland, Canada and the United Arab Emirates, as well as clients all over the United States.

Experience a Complimentary "Shift Forward" Session!

Let's find a time that works for us both!

My complementary Shift Forward sessions last two hours, giving us time to talk about coaching and have an actual coaching session. You have nothing to lose and so much to gain! If it ends up not being the right time for you, or we don't fit, I only ask that you tell others about my coaching who you feel may benefit or be a good match. Win-win! We talk about what coaching is and is not, have an actual coaching session and answer your questions.
