I offer one-to-one coaching via the privacy and convenience of a Zoom call. But coaching is still an unfamiliar path to many people. Below you’ll find answers to many of the questions people have about coaching.
I'm ready to be coached
The most basic reason people want to coach is because they are motivated to see positive, permanent change in their lives.
A coach is someone who helps you move toward transformation, growth, and personal progress faster and more consistently than you can on your own.
I will celebrate with you, and cheer and stir you up when the journey is long and the burden heavy, reminding you of all the steps you have taken along the way.
I will ask questions, speak truth, and point to wisdom so that you can find the clearest path forward.
I will listen with care, compassion, and attention.
You have your own path to walk in life, but a faithful companion can turn a walk in the woods into a hero’s quest.
I will help you hold the pieces that you uncover and discern the right timing and way to put them together.
I will bring different frameworks: a coaching method, an understanding of the human heart, and a paradigm of transformation, all of which will help you find the right places to dig.
I will bring helpful tools like powerful questions, observation, and discernment to help you make your discoveries.
You have your own discoveries to make but the right tools can make the process of digging easier.
I will speak boldly with a prophetic voice – out of a heart of compassion and a sensitivity to the Spirit – and remind you that you are the beloved of God and as such you are someone whose heart is worth listening to.
I will create a space where you can be honest with yourself, embracing the deepest desires of your heart and facing your patterns of brokenness (including limiting beliefs).
I will make sure that your ultimate goals of growth stand over every series goal, every action step, and every new bit of awareness that is pursued.
You have your own destination to reach but having goalposts in sight can make moving towards transformation, growth, and maturity more productive.
You are the expert on being you. I can help you cut through the muddle and help you find clarity, but you must discover your own answers.
If “Five Easy Steps to a Better…” is what you are looking for, something that will paper over a few of the cracks in your life, then I am not the coach for you.
If we uncover something that is actively damaging to yourself or others and you are not willing to address it in some fashion, then we cannot work together.
Some issues need specialist attention. If we uncover something that I am not qualified to help you with, I will refer you to someone who is able to give you the help you need.
We have bodies that perceive and need to be attended to in order to grow and mature, emotionally and spiritually.
And we are intended to bringing order, flourishing, and newness to the world.
We have brains with a slow-track and a fast-track, both of which need to be engaged to experience transformation.
Humans are beings that are emotional, physical, and spiritual.
Be open to the possibility of things changing (yourself, your perspective, your circumstances) and becoming unstuck.
Be open to surrendering both control and apathy; and be open to stepping into agency, into taking responsible action.
Be open to learning new things about yourself.
Be open to the challenge of being honest and asking yourself honest (and maybe hard) questions.
And be curious about what God might say.
Be curious about your purpose and about new opportunities for growth.
Be curious about what new patterns of response and new actions might arise.
Be curious about your emotions and desires, and how they are embodied – what they even are, their roots, and how they are manifesting in your actions and being.
Be curious about what you are going to discover about yourself.
