What Is Longing To Emerge in Your Life?

Life coaching attends to the deeper conversations you are having with yourself and offers you the space to discover where it is your really want to be in your life. Whether you are a young adult just setting out into the world, or a mature person in a state of profound transition, whole-hearted discussions are aimed at surfacing your deepest aspirations with respect to purpose, living your values, relationships, health, work, family, finances, learning, etc.

The coaching process is both creative and proactive encouraging you to think less about what you don’t want and more about what you do want: What really matters? What wants to emerge? What has to change in order for vision to become reality?

Beliefs, while comforting, might be acting as barriers to progress. So a significant effort is made to illuminate limiting beliefs and build joyful stamina and tolerance for the creative tension that exists when you become aware of the gap between your current reality and desired future.

With Life Coaching the OptimizeD approach takes a more creative pathway to greater levels of fulfillment. Not only will I encourage you to think about your body as a system but the changes you make will be considered in the context of the communities in which you love, live and belong. We will use exercises, directed reading, art, journaling, body-centred experiences and assessments as the inputs into what will become your strategic life plan and then through discipline and commitment you will take the necessary steps to realize the life changes you have set for yourself.

The INtwoIT Promise
I will consistently do my part to confirm that our work together is meeting or exceeding your expectations. As the client, it is your responsibility to fulfill your commitments and speak up when you believe adjustments need to be made. It is within this spirit of mutual trust and accountability that I promise to give you my very best and expect the best from you.

The more we care for the happiness of others, the greater our own sense of well-being becomes. Cultivating a close, warm-hearted feeling for others automatically puts the mind at ease. This helps remove whatever fears or insecurities we may have and gives us the strength to cope with any obstacles we encounter. It is the ultimate source of success in life.
