What is life coaching?


The International Coach Federation defines coaching as partnering with clients in a thought-provoking and creative process that inspires them to maximize their personal potential.

Another way to say it... coaching is an on-going intentional conversation that empowers a person to fully live out God's calling. 


Benefits that coaching brings to a wife in healing:


Companionship

Feeling alone in unsettling times can be paralyzing. Having on-going conversations with a coach who has faced similar struggles provides a safe heaven for gaining new insights and action steps for your unique situation. It is encouraging to share your grief and victories with someone who cares and relates. We take time to celebrate each win


Empowerment

As a Christian coach I offer to my clients the opportunity to pray asking the Holy Spirit to lead our time and grant us wisdom. As an answer to these tender moments, I have seen surprising clarity of thought, courage and motivation come up. God knows each one's deepest needs and meets them there.  You and Him are the best experts in your life.

We tap into this powerful combination! 


Balance

 Living with someone battling sexual brokenness has a tendency to drain one’s energy and passions. It is not uncommon for a wife to get so enmeshed in this significant relationship that her distinct qualities and desires get pushed aside. The coaching process gives due consideration to the individual’s body, mind and soul. 

This leads to balance as one reconnects to the person they were created to be.

Frequently Asked Questions

WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN COACHING AND COUNSELING/THERAPY?

Coaches do not diagnose or treat mental health conditions. Although many of the communication techniques are the same such as active listening, reflecting, use of questions, etc., therapy focuses on the past to bring healing and unblock a person to move ahead. Coaching clarifies where you stand today, considers where you want to go, then strategizes your best path to get there. Coaching keeps you on the driver’s seat while facilitating personal reflection for the best next best moves available to you. It is action oriented.


WHERE DO COACHING SESSIONS TAKE PLACE?

Sessions may be face to face if you live in San Antonio -TX, but most coaching sessions take place from the comfort of your private space by phone or video conference. 


WHAT’S THE RECOMMENDED FREQUENCY FOR COACHING?

This is something for coach and client to decide together.

My personal recommendation - After working with many coaching clients over the past few years, I have seen that it’s best to meet every two - three - four weeks max. I have designed a package that safeguards on-going progress for the coaching season.

I am always open to hearing from my clients on how to best meet their coaching needs. We’ll come up with a plan that works well for the one being coached.


WHY DOES LIFE COACHING WORK?

Coaching works because it brings out your best – what God put in! Coaches believe you can create your own best answers and are trained to support you in that process.

Specifically, this is what your coach will do during coaching sessions:

Listen. Your story is central. You're the expert in your own life. Coaches fully engage in what you are saying. They also listen to the Holy Spirit and encourage you to do the same.

Ask questions. Coaches use questions to stimulate your thinking and creativity. Questions are about possibilities, reflection and where you long to be in your journey. 

Encourage. Everyone needs encouragement, and usually we don’t get enough. Your coach will hold up your vision, your progress, and your efforts. Your victories will not be overlooked. Each one is worth celebrating. 

Facilitate while letting you lead. Coaches facilitate your learning and problem solving skills. Yet, they are never fully leading – you are, with your agenda, insight and approach.  


WHY USE A COACH?

The reasons people pursue coaching are as unique as each person. Here are a few reasons a wife in healing may choose to use a coach:

...to make significant changes and get unstuck - to take ownership of one’s healing journey - to better deal with uncertainty - to better relate to a spouse in recovery - to improve focus - to reach balance faster - to practice healthy detachment - to rediscover identity - to design personal and relational boundaries - to deal better with triggers - to develop better coping mechanisms - to improve relationships - to reconnect with one’s passions - to address transitions...


HOW DO I MAKE THE MOST OF THE COACHING TREATMENT?

Keep an open heart - be willing to be vulnerable and honest in this judgement free zone. It’s often hearing yourself where you get major insights. So, keep a spirit of adventure and possibilities as you are being coached.

A little prep time - Spending a brief time reflecting on the progresses and new learning made since the last session and what you would like to address on the new session will help you get more out of the experience.

Continuity - Coaching brings self-awareness in life’s ups and downs. Sharing your wins, new insights and areas for improvement since the last session brings traction to your progress. This ongoing gentle accountability is key to successful life coaching. 


HOW IS CHRISTIAN COACHING UNIQUE?

“I pray that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened…” Ephesians 1:18

Christian coaching is an ongoing conversation that empowers a person to fully live out God’s calling. Christian coaches will encourage you to listen to the Holy Spirit and take action to reshape your life around that learning.

Together you will look at how God has called and equipped you in life and achievement. You will feel comfortable sharing your spiritual needs, doubts, and desires. Christian coaches will support you where you are and encourage you in the direction you want to grow.
