How I Can Help You?
The Personal Coaching Experience
Whether a new personal coaching client comes with a focused issue or challenge they'd like to explore and develop plans for, or whether they come with a "something's just not right...I feel unsettled, adrift, without direction" Cathy has the ability to listen hard, to ask the questions that elicit new thoughts, and to help develop the paths and decisions that add clarity to a client's life.
For those who come with a specific focus or goal, Cathy explores possible next steps, hones in on personal roadblocks that may be getting in the way, offers suggestions for action steps and co-develops a timeline that makes sense and allows for milestones to be reached.
For those who come with an unsettled feeling and who are seeking clarity, Cathy begins with 12 Life Areas and asks questions to help the client become clear about which area to concentrate on.
Cathy has an innate ability to partner with her clients. She asks questions and gives plenty of time for the thought process to take place. She supports and also gives "tough love" on the way to seeing her clients achieve goals, achieve clarity, and move forward.
