Work with Me
Work with Me
Perhaps based on most of my experience coming from real life as opposed to a classroom, I view and practice "coaching" differently than most. It's also based on what I know I needed when I was struggling to make changes. I can now look back with a clear mind and understand what would have helped me most. And I've spent hundreds of hours as a client of various therapists, counsellors, and coaches.
I approach it in a much more simple and direct way; I believe a life coach to be far closer to a traditional athletic coach as opposed to the jargon filled, confusing “models” that the industry is seemingly embracing. I have no time for bullshit, and neither should you.
To me, a coach is someone who has been through the battles, has a passion for helping others, and keeps you accountable and on track. No “wellness wheels”, quasi neurolinguistic programming, or rigid and confusing “models” of coaching. No easy advice from people who have never really struggled in life.
As much as I would love to be able to use a "program" or some mysterious, secret method to help everyone, it's not reality. And as someone who's been on both sides of the coin, I'll pull the curtain back on the industry a bit- no one has one. Period. Despite the slick language and marketing, amazing testimonials, and fancy degrees, almost all therapists, counsellors, coaches and self help gurus are doing one of two things- using the same tool to "help" thousands of highly unique and complicated individuals, or using a buffet of techniques, not necessarily in any cohesive fashion.
Coaching is art. Not science. And in my experience, those who seek out "coaching", often just need someone they trust who they can TALK to confidentially. Especially men. Perspective, accountability, and a relentless belief that you can do anything are the most valuable things I can provide you with- and they can't be taught in coaching school.
Either way, I will be there with you until the end. It took me five years to go from zero to hero. My life changed in ways I never thought possible; I want to help you do the same, but a lot quicker. I take the victories and defeats of clients personally. And I promise you nothing other than trust, constant support, and an absolute refusal to let you sell yourself short. Nothing else matters.
Let’s get to work.
