If you were going to have surgery, would you choose a doctor who has lots of education but no surgical experience or one who has operated many times? Life experience is a coach's most valuable asset. Having hours and hours of training, role playing, learning skills and theory are useless if you don't have the life experience to go with it. Walking in a client's shoes is the only way you can fully understand their feelings and situation. If I don't have life experience with a potential client's situation, I won't coach them.
I'm a certified coach practitioner through Certified Coaches Federation (CCF) and a member of the International Association for Professional Life Coaches (IAPLC); I have an honors certificate through the Canadian Institute of Management. When I was working as an Office Manager I was a leader and coach for my staff; I managed over $I million in budgets, grants, and drug studies. As a volunteer, I was a facilitator for new members groups, a weekly chat group and a course on rebuilding when your relationship ends. I am not limited to my specialties but they are my passion.
1) Caregiver for chronically ill child and/or aging parents/relatives as well as death and grief. I cared for and lost a son to cancer. I was caregiver for aging parents and relatives. I've comforted the dying and the grieving. I've been divorced and hurt in relationships.
2) Personal finance - I help people set and achieve financial goals through budgets, understanding debt, savings, and future planning. I've survived bad times and appreciated the good ones.
3) Health and wellness - Suffering from chronic pain and/or disability can lead to obesity. It happened to me. I felt sorry for myself and used my pain as a crutch and an excuse to withdraw from life. I still fight the scale, but I now live an active and happy life.
I will support, encourage, and guide you towards creating your best life. I look forward to being your coach and seeing your success as you change your life.
