My Approach

In the coaching process, I communicate and  provide an empathetic, non-judgmental, and confidential environment as you work towards your goals. We will work together to create a vision of where you want to be and a road map for behavior change to get there. 

I honor you as the expert of yourself before my expertise and will use my knowledge and experience where appropriate or when asked rather assuming I know what's right for you or telling you what I think you should do.    

 

Why is 1:1 Coaching not designed to target a specific plan or goal? 

Clients often come to coaching expecting to purchase a one size fits all package, for example, a nutrition plan, and the coach gives them one.  Sometimes they succeed and sometimes they don't.   

 

The majority of my clients have  tried something that worked for others but it didn't work for them.  The reasons vary, but to alleviate the frustration, they need a new approach.

Others, have been told by a health care professional to make one or more changes to achieve a specific outcome, for example, blood sugar control, and are confused where to start or how to  stick to a plan.  

 

What's DIFFERENT with my approach, is I will take the time to listen to what has worked, what hasn't, and if you are ready for the change you want or have been prescribed.   

 

We will take the time to identify potential  root causes of your health concerns and develop the best solution for your needs, do the work to get you ready to make a change, and when you are, get you into action

 

This is the secret to sustainable results vs. focusing on just the outcome!

The ideal person for coaching is someone:

  • Who knows what works but needs goals, accountability and support

  • Who hasn't found what works & is ready to stop wasting time & money on what hasn't worked

  • Who has been prescribed a nutrition or lifestyle change and needs an ally to support them

  • Has been told "nothing" is wrong with them, but your symptoms and intuition tell you otherwise

  • Willing to take an active role in the discovery and implementation of what can work for them
