Thank you for visiting our website and congratulations on taking the time to explore what life coaching is all about.
Life coaching has become very popular recently and it’s in response to people wanting to take charge and create a life that fulfills them on every level. Emotionally, physically, personally, professionally, spiritually, romantically – you name it. It’s a way to systematically apply tools that help you figure out what it is that makes you happy, what it is that you really want, how to leave behind what is getting in the way of those things, and how to create a life that you are excited about. We call this kind of coaching lifestyle design and at the Essential Mind and Body coaching program, we have scoured the field for the most effective, productive and enriching personal development tools that will help your achieve your ideal lifestyle design.
Let me give you an example of what lifestyle design coaching can do for you.
Gabrielle* was in her late 30′s, financially successful, gainfully employed as an executive at a successful corporation and from the outside looking in, it seemed like she had everything. A beautiful home, a handsome partner, a good car, a robust social life. But inside, Gabrielle felt empty. Her job stopped being fulfilling years ago and the people she worked with drained her of energy. There was no time for intimacy in her relationship with her partner and after a short while, they both lost all inclination to be connected. She even found that when coming back from a business trip, she no longer wanted to go home. She was uncomfortable with herself and, as a result, she was uncomfortable wherever she went. This was not at all the life she imagined for herself and was quite certain that she couldn’t go on much longer this way.
That’s when Gabrielle identified and started to work with a life coach. Through the coaching process, she was able to identify the parts of her profession that she loved and the parts that wore her out. Working together with her coach and the right tools, she developed an ideal job description that led her to her next job at a new company, working with people she respects and feels that she can learn from. In her new role she gets to apply her skills in a way that makes a positive impact in her company and in her community, and it makes her excited to go to work every day. Her newly rediscovered energy inspired her to revitalize her romantic relationship by learning and appreciating the way each of them had grown and changed, and making time to prioritize each other and keep things fresh. They have since found new common interests and have started traveling together, seeing life as an adventure they want to experience as a team. As balance was identified as one of the things most important to Gabrielle, she and her coach worked out a way to incorporate good eating habits, exercise and meditation into her weekly routine so that she is always at her best – both emotionally and physically. And, equally as important, Gabrielle now dreams big. Through the coaching process, Gabrielle has become fearless when it comes to thinking about what it is that drives her, makes her happy and pushes her personal development. She knows if she can dream it – we can work together to make it happen.
Gabrelle’s story is, unfortunately, more common than any of us would like. The good news is there is a better way and lifestyle design coaching can help you get there.
