If you are feeling exhausted in a way that you can’t recover through your normal rest and recreation, you feel distant from your patients, colleagues and work, and you wonder about your accomplishments and impact, individual or small group coaching can benefit you.
Working one on one you’ll get to identify what you’re experiencing in a more specific way, your stressors, triggers and thinking traps. You’ll learn where to focus your attention, how to connect to your strengths and meaning, ways to relate more positively and when to take a breather. You’ll develop strategies to be more
- Courageous and
- Live with greater ease
You’ll have an opportunity to develop self-compassion, clarity about what’s important to you, a vision for a better future and the courage and a plan to pursue that vision.
And believe it or not, all of these can be learned.
Group Coaching is an option when there are enough individuals who will fit well together. The current size of groups is up to 6 people. Your entry into a group is preceded by two to four individual coaching sessions to clarify what you want to work on, so that you can become familiar with my style and confident that I will be your courageous ally to achieve your life of well-being. Special care is taken to design how we will all work together so that respect for one another is always present, you feel safe and comfortable with one another and that each member’s needs will be addressed.
Coaching packages to achieve your revitalized life are available upon request. Coaching sessions are over the phone or via the internet.
Professional Men and Women
Life is full of normal challenges that can lead to normal anxiety and exhaustion. If you want your life to be more positive, calm and fulfilling, one on one coaching or small group coaching may serve you best. You’ll have an opportunity to explore various domains of your life, all of which impact each other.
With me at your side, you’ll have an opportunity to visualize what your ideal for that area of life is and develop a plan to achieve that ideal. I’ll be with you along the way to encourage you, help you anticipate obstacles, review what is working and tweak your plan so you can live with greater ease while achieving a life you love.
Coaching sessions are over the phone or via the internet.
To get started becoming aware of what matters to you, use the Wheel of Life diagram. It identifies various aspects of your life; each domain impacts the others in the pie. You can change, split or rename any category so that it’s meaningful and represents what makes up a satisfying life for you.
Next, mark your level of satisfaction within each area, 0 being not satisfied at all and 10 representing the most satisfied you could imagine being in that aspect of your life. Then connect your marks with lines so that each is connected to the one next to it.
The new perimeter of the circle represents your ‘Wheel of Life’. Is it a bumpy ride?
What area calls to you as one that you would like to improve? What would a 10 look like for you?
