Individual Life coaching
Life coaching focuses on you and how you are being in life--family, relationship, spirituality, personal growth and work. When a person has balance and connectedness within and between these spheres generally there is a sense of contentment and positive progression through life. The ideal balance between these spheres and the content within them is different for everyone.
The work in coaching is in determining your current situation in these different spheres and exploring which areas are not feeling right to you and why. Then together we create a vision of what you would like your life to look like, in these different spheres. By knowing where you are and where you want to go, you can then create a path between the two. I am here all along the way to help you identify issues and blocks and to strategize how to move through challenges to achieve your goals. As you begin to make life changes, we will re-evaluate your progress and your challenges and re-formulate, as needed, your plan of change.
We all seek balance and the ability to feel joy and contentment in being alive as well as an experience of achievement in our life. We may or may not have this every moment, but striving to experience this daily is very reasonable.
Couples Life coaching
We begin our intimate relationships with great hope, devotion and belief. It is not unusual for the realities of life, children, work and personal change to challenge our connection to the person we love. Coaching can shed light on the specific areas of concern and help in bringing greater understanding and love between the parties.
By clarifying the issues one can gain understanding for both parties and that creates the possibility of greater appreciation of the other. For example, separating your feeling about your partner’s actions from your partner’s feeling about her/his action and looking at each of these elements separately, creates the possibility for each party to really understand the other.
Relationship is about relating, understanding, sharing and loving kindness. In my work I help couples remember this and help them create whatever changes they need to make to help them move forward in their relationship.
What Life Coaching Is Not
Claudia is not a trained mental health therapist. Given this, she is not an appropriate choice for anyone with serious mental health challenges. If that is you, see local references for a practitioner who would suit you better. Individuals who come to Claudia whom she believes are in need of a higher level of mental healthcare will be referred to an appropriate provider. Claudia does not prescribe any medications for persons being seen for coaching and she does not bill insurance for any coaching sessions.
Cost for coaching is $60 for a 50 min. session. Generally I contract for a group of 4 sessions at a time with payment for all due at the end of the first session. Currently I do not take credit cards, and payment plans are possible, if needed.
