How can you help individuals and businesses define and focus more clearly on what is important to them? There is a coach training institute that can help. The International Coaching Federation (www.icf.org) defines coaching as an “on going professional relationship between the client and coach that helps people produce fulfilling results in both their personal and professional lives. Clients report that they deepen their learning, improve their performance and enhance the quality of their lives. Coaching concentrates on where you are now, your visions and goals and supporting you to achieve them.” There are many different types of coaching including: Mentor Coaching, Spiritual Coaching, Financial Coaching, Personal Trainer (health or sports) or global Executive Coaching.
High impact coaching is a proven effective vehicle allowing you to explore and direct your life in a way that supports who you really are. It can use your connections with your guides, higher self and intuition to illuminate a life path and natural next steps that allows your deepest desires, leadership training, yearnings and beingness to be expressed in the world. This coach training institute's program, www.coachforlife.com, emphasizes coaches focus on the spiritual truth and magnificence of each person as the foundation of their coaching.
Webster’s Dictionary defines a catalyst as “A person whose talk, enthusiasm, or energy causes others to be more friendly, enthusiastic or energetic.” Clients have described their coaching experience with me as “honest, enthusiastic, spiritual, direct, soft (tough but gentle), intuitive, someone who understands the energetic dimensions, present and on purpose.” My coaching vision for have each client is for them to “Awaken, Achieve and Fulfill Yourself.”
This professional relationship is different than therapy, friendships and consultants because the client is uniquely responsible for setting the agenda and creating the outcome. The coach’s mission is to empower their clients to access their own inner knowing, wisdom and power. It does not deal with historical emotional issues or blocks, nor focus on past wounds as in therapy, it does not rely on a consultant to produce a work product or to give advice and direction or as a friend to talk things through. Its focus is in the present to support the client in living their vision and manifesting it in the world. Coaching can also be done in groups – either of friends or business associates with great success.
The areas most commonly explored in coaching are: Personal Growth and Development, Profession and Finances, Physical Environments (work and home), Physical Well Being, Rest, Regeneration and Relationships. The coach’s job is to take direction from the client about what area they want to focus on and support them in creating whatever balance and fulfillment serves the client for their life. A fun and insightful way for a client to view their life is with the Life Fulfillment and Balance Wheels. You can try this brief eight question survey – The Quality of Your Life located on my website at www.yourcatalystcoach.com. Feel free to email me your survey so that we can use it to schedule a session to enhance one of the areas for yourself during a complimentary 30 minute session.
The goal of spiritual coaching is for clients to have a balanced and fulfilled life through a process of aligning and integrating your outer world with your inner being. The process begins with an Inner Discovery Process which helps people to clarify their core values, desires and yearnings of their soul. Coaching helps the client or business use their core values and desires to create a Personal Life Plan and Direction that supports the expression and alignment with their essential nature.
The on going relationship of coaching typically takes the form of weekly contact either by phone or in person between the coach and client to support them in implementing their desired goals. Each week the client will set the agenda for their session, usually 30-45 minutes in length, connect with the clients inner knowing, to support them in getting clear guidance and next steps for their journey into the upcoming week. Coaching relationships can last as short or long as it benefits the client and traditional coaching relationships start with a three month commitment. There are several different techniques used by coaches to facilitate the client’s progress including: Inquiries, Requests, Presencing the Gremlin, creating Sacred Space, holding the focus and acknowledgements among others.
Coaching gives me the opportunity to share these gifts with people interested in expanding themselves. I am uniquely qualified as a coach because of my diverse background during the past 30+ years: being a professional Intuitive Reader at the Claremont Hotel in Berkeley, an author creating and publishing a unique new age rune oracle, The Runes of the Four Realms, a certified Clinical Hypnotherapist doing deep spiritual insight and healing work with people, a social worker with foster children and families and residential counselor to severely emotionally disturbed teenagers and as a corporate interior designer and project manager specializing in healthcare facilities. I have also taught numerous classes including Spiritual Awareness and Practice in Everyday Life, The Inner Journey and Creating our Personal Rune Oracle to audiences nationally.

The coaching sessions can either be done over the phone or in person at my Chico office. Please call me at 530-589-5552 or visit me online at www.yourcatalystcoach.com to set up an appointment.
