Frequently Asked Questions
Transformational coaching is life coaching, but with the emphasis on deep personal growth. It is soul work rather than simply goal oriented or task centered work. Goals and tasks are included in transformational coaching, as is emotional exploration and spiritual development.
I spent 20 years in traditional talk therapy, both individual and group sessions. I’m not knocking it…I learned a lot. I wonder now if I had been coached with gestalt methods, or put into a wilderness program for troubled teens, or into an equine program, or worked with a breathworker if I would have been saved from years of turmoil, not to mention cost?
What if I had a coach…someone to champion me, work with my physical and spiritual self, and not just the intellectual mind. What If I had been guided to find my true self and calling at an early age? What if I had been understood instead of shamed for not fitting the mold of working life? I had spiritual teachers for some of this..and it wasn’t until I experienced being coached that the key fit the lock.
Here are some questions to consider:
- Have you become aware of any reoccurring limiting or negative patterns in your life but don’t know what to do?
- Are you at a crossroads in your life and aren’t which direction to go?
- Are you struggling with intimacy, or long lasting relationships?
- Do you have a strong desire to have a deeper connection with your higher self but don’t know?
- Would you like to create more financial abundance and don’t know how to?
- Have you lost your enthusiasm for life and feel uninspired most of the time?
- Are you ready to make a major change but feel afraid of failing so you stay stuck?
- Do you want to discover what your life purpose is and begin living it?
- Ae you suffering from past trauma that you’ve never gotten beyond?
If you answered yes to any of the above questions, then Transformational Coaching is definitely right for you.
Transformational coaching uncovers inner beliefs, especially limiting beliefs, which might be in conflict with your goals.
If you’ve ever experienced extreme procrastination, self-sabotage, feeling completely lost or stuck, then you know what I’m talking about!
Coaching is not Mentoring: I don’t take the stance as one who is more knowledgeable, rather, I assist you in finding your own inner knowing.
Coaching is not Therapy: Coaching takes a pro-active approach to uncovering and moving through issues that may be holding you back or keeping you from your excellence. Patterns are revealed, strategies are created. Coaching supports and guides you as you implement the steps needed to create new patterns which fulfill your heart and create your best self.
Therapy is more for people needing emotional or mental help but who may not be seeking an action plan or ongoing hands on support in between sessions.
Therapy diagnoses and then treats mental illness and emotional problems.
Coaching does not diagnose or medically treat any illness or diagnosis.
To be coachable means you are committed to the process and are willing to show up especially when you hit your resistance. This means you are close to a break through. Most people stop when it gets hard, or uncomfortable or a thousand other reasons to back away. This is the brains way of keeping you stuck or in the status quo patterns and beliefs.
You are ready if you
- Truly want to grow your self esteem
- Are eager to take actions that will move you forward
- Want to rid yourself of old stories and create new the new one
- Will take responsibility for your life and stop blaming
- Are willing to be honest with self and grow in awareness of what has held you back.
- Sees fear and other obstacles as an opportunity to overcome

I bring all of my self plus the horses or hawks to our sessions, and don’t hold back. Literally nobody else in the world offers coaching in this way, or at this depth. My life experience, training and commitment to helping humanity awaken and create the life their soul came here to live is worthy of your investment in your Self. Ultimately, that is what it comes down to…your own willingness to invest in yourself. It’s not about finding another coach for less money.
As someone who struggled financially, knows poverty and deep debt, I am sympathetic to the struggle. Addressing your own struggle with Lack is a perfect thing to bring to coaching. The roots run deep.
