Life coaching is not therapy.

Life coaching involves overcoming the obstacles that get in your way to personal and career success. But it is not “therapy.”

So…. what is it then?

It is working together with clients to help them identify what is and is not working in their lives — using inquiry and tools.

It is teaching clients to enhance what is uniquely right for them so they can live happier lives and/or have more successful careers.

And just as important, it is giving clients the tools to minimize the things that are not working well in their lives.

It’s sharing with clients the life tools that can help them identify and overcome limiting beliefs that hinder their growth and personal achievement.

It includes helping them define their goals and come up with actionable plans to achieve them.

It is guiding them into healthier, more successful practices and witnessing their growth.

It’s guiding them as they re-establish their passions and strengths & it’s helping them learn how to better celebrate them! fly away birdie tumblr It is not “fixing” a client’s life for them. It is giving them the tools and the confidence to problem-solve on their own, so that eventually, clients do not need a coach. (Yes, that’s right….a good coach will coach herself right out of a job!) Thus, it is giving clients the tools to thrive, and fly….

Dream analysis — Studies have shown that the subconscious mind controls more than 90 percent of our behaviors. Dream analysis can tap into and bring awareness to some of the wisdom and messages that our subconscious mind has for us.

Our dreams are filled with symbols. This dream analysis process helps unlock the meanings behind them on a very personal level. For instance, if a client comes to me with a snake in their dream, I do not tell them the Freudian version of what that snake might represent (phallic symbol/sexual drive, etc.) A snake will have varying meanings to different people. To a zookeeper or a herpetologist, a snake might represent work. To my daughter it might represent that animal that I will not let her have, and to another family-member of mine, it might be the symbol of sheer terror. But, to a client of mine whose dream we analyzed it actually represented danger and her father’s protection from it because her dad used to kill rattlesnakes on his ranch and hang them on their barbed wire fence. He also wore snakeskin boots.

As you can imagine, the meaning is indeed very unique to the specific dreamer. This work involves helping the client de-code the meanings as it pertains specifically to themselves. It is a fascinating and revealing process. I’m very efficient with this, but it can still be a time-consuming process as most dreams have several symbols at once. Please book at least two sessions to allow time for this process.
