What is Life Coaching?

Life coaching is a partnership; you and I create a process together through which you can focus on what is actually happening for you, and what you want to create.

Most of our time in life is spent doing, or thinking about doing; we seldom give ourselves room to examine what is happening for us at a deeper level.  We often resist looking deeper, keep our selves busy, filling up any stillness or silence with whatever we can find to push back uncertainty and the feelings that arise when we do not.  Together we will create access to the still, open space inside you where you can stop doing and focus on discovering what’s here right now.  From that space, you can make new choices: Who do you want to be from that place of stillness and wisdom?

Life coaching creates a structure that allows you to focus on the work you want to be doing.

The Details: Commitment and Cost

Life coaching processes range in length from three months to a year or more.  The process generally begins with meeting 2-3 times per month for three months.  Long-term processes usually become less intensive over time.  Many of my clients work with me for a while, get what they need around a particular question, struggle or transition, take a break of months or years, and circle back when new things are up and they want more coaching.

Life coaching is often done by phone, but if you live in or near Portland, Oregon and would prefer to meet in person, we can meet in my home studio in outer SE.

Life coaching is a relationship. In order to establish the relationship, and to get enough momentum to make significant shifts happen, the initial process requires a three-month commitment.  This includes a two-hour discovery session, and two hours of live (in person or by phone) coaching per month for three months, plus some email support in between sessions.  The cost is $525.  If you want to continue coaching after that, the cost is $145/month or $75/hour for individual sessions.

Curious?  Try it out.

The way to know if what I bring is a good match for where you are and what you want is to try it, so I offer a free half hour consultation in which we talk about what you are wanting and what I bring, and do 15-20 minutes of coaching so we can see if it feels like a good match.  If you are interested, please contact me.
