What's the difference between a Therapist and a Co-Active Coach?
A Therapist and Co-Active Coach compliment each other. A Therapist focuses primarily on issues of the past andare trained to diagnose emotional problems. Whereas, a Co-Active Coach focuses on the present-moment and working with the client to design his or her future.
How do you coach?
I coach over the phone and Skype. It gives me the opportunity to work with you regardless of your country, city or state.
What is your educational background?
I graduated from California State University in 2006 with a Bachelors Degree in Marketing with a minor in Psychology. I then got trained as a Certified Professional Co-Active Coach (CPCC) at The Coaches Training Institute in the San Francisco Bay area.
What occurs during each coaching session?
It is up to you. You set the stage and we will dance in the moment, meaning that you bring whatever is going on in your life at that time and I'll bring my Co-Active strategies for us to create solutions regarding you being "stuck". We can look at things that are blocking you from moving forward, or how to transform negative situations into positive ones, or how to enjoy the present-moment - it's up to you to set the stage. Ultimately, with each coaching session, we will make sure we are taking steps to get you closer to your where you want to be in life. Lastly, we will set upaccountability so that you keep moving forward.
How long do sessions last?
Coaching Sessions usually last anywhere between 30 minutes and 1-hour, depending on your schedule and what you want to be coached on.
