Spiritual coaching is a direct and holistic approach to helping people to solve issues in their lives by healing and rebalancing the whole person. Spiritual coaching is like counseling but it is more directive and short-term. My spiritual coaching practice is based on several holistic and spiritual "principals" which you can find below. You do not have to agree with all of the principals to benefit from spiritual coaching but an openness to them will greatly assist the process.
Spiritual coaching is beneficial for most emotional issues such as depression, anxiety, grief, ongoing irritability, anger, sadness, etc. as well as life challenges or transitions (changes in job/career, divorce, parenting, moving. loss of a loved one), and relationship/family struggles for example. I find it can also be very helpful for many physical or somatic issues such as headaches, stomach problems, Chronic Fatigue, sleep problems, eczema, fertility issues and the list goes on and on. While spiritual coaching is not a medical treatment and any physical concerns should be addressed with your doctor first, many times I find that the physical problems people are experiencing have an underlying emotional cause as well that has been ignored. For this reason, coaching is really helpful for all areas of your life. But if you're still unsure if it can help you, feel free to contact me for a free 20 minute consultation to discuss what options are best for you.
Beliefs of my spiritual coaching...
We all hold the keys to our own healing and happiness and are active participants in our own healing and the life we create.
All physical illness is connected in some way to an emotional cause.
Each person has a unique gift and purpose in this world that they are meant to express.
Change comes from within not from others.
Life is not about suffering but about joy, passion, love and living our purpose.
We each hold the power to have the life we want.
What we focus our attention on is what we will attract in our lives.
Lastly, spiritual coaching is ultimately about you being open and honest with yourself and making a committment to your SELF. My spiritual coaching will only be as effective as you want it to be and will progress as quickly as you decide. In my experience, the two greatest keys to your healing and progress are committment and trust. This means, a committment to yourself and the therapy process as well as feeling a deep sense of trust with me. When these two ingredients are in place, all things are possible.
How long will I need to be in spiritual coaching?
Coaching is different from therapy in that it is typically short-term and is focused on specific tasks and issues. Each person and situation is different so it varies, but my goal with each client is for the process to be as efficient and effective as possible. The timeline of the coaching is ultimately up to you however, but the more active and invested you are in the process, the faster you will find resolution. Generally speaking though, coaching can be a few sessions up to several months depending on how complex the problem is and how actively you participate in the process.
Is spiritual coaching connected to a religion or religious belief?
No. Spiritual coaching has nothing to do with religion and I, myself, do not belong to any religion. I am however, open to all belief systems that you may have.
How do I know if spiritual coaching is right for me?
If you are facing any challenges or difficulties in your life whether they are emotional, physical, relational or you're at a point where you just don't know how to move forward, spiritual coaching could be right for you. Spiritual coaching is also excellent for those in search of more purpose in their lives and a feeling that "there must be something more to life." You may be contemplating a career change because you want to do something that makes a difference in the world today or you have an intuitive gift but don't know what to do with it or you want to incorporate more spirituality and a spiritual connection in your life but don't know how. You may also be struggling with a feeling of emptiness or as if you are missing something in your life even though everything is going well on the surface. All of these are just some examples of who spiritual counseling is right for, but if you're not sure, please contact me for a free 20 minute consultation.
