About Me & Why I might be the coach for You
My experience has shown me that the kind of coach-client relationship which leads to the most satisfying and powerful results are ones where there are a strong alignment in intention, energy and orientation. By this I mean the client is intending to realize is also what the coach is most excited to offer. They share a similar level of energy, where the intensity of their enthusiasm meet and create an unstoppable drive to move things forward. There is a complementarity in how the pair “do the dance” with each other: yin and yang, love and will, feminine and masculine.
Life coaching work requires methodology and expertise, but it requires intuition and heart, too. A coach who cares and has reliable intuition can be much more impactful than a coach with good technique and years of experience.
The above should give you a sense of where I come from and how I approach the important work of life coaching. In addition, I have provided an overview of my qualifications and experiences in such a way that will hopefully give you insight into how I have chosen to shape my life and how life has shaped me.
