Holistic Life and Wellness Coaching

What is Life Coaching?

Coaching is a positive process which empowers the individual to realize their full potential and achieve their goals.

A life coach is a professional who helps clients achieve their personal and professional goals – achieving your ideal weight, finding a soul mate, landing a dream job, growing a business, working through personal and/or relationship issues. Sometimes people are not clear what exactly they want. The main thing about all of these is that the client wants to CHANGE something to improve the quality of their life. Life coaching provides them with guidance on how to make decisions at various crossroads in life.
The coaching process holds strong foundations in positive psychology with Sarah’s passion for mindfulness and approaching life with wonderfully simple, yet effective tools.
Sarah’s practice is based on the belief that her clients’ needs are of the utmost importance. She views every client as unique and is committed to meeting the needs of each client individually. As a result, a high percentage of her business is from repeat customers and referrals.

Life coaching offers no magic bullets or quick-fixes. It relies on principles of positive psychology and empowers clients to generate lasting transformation. It takes time to build physical muscles and, similarly, a life coach helps to build clients’ mental muscles so they can think differently and approach life more effectively. Clients will gradually develop the strength to face any challenges in life with ease and grace.

How does life coaching differ from traditional therapies?­

Coaching and therapies work with different paradigms. Of course, each practitioner works differently but therapy tends to treat past emotional issues while coaching considers that clients are healthy, and focuses on where they are now, where they want to be, and how to get there. In general, coaching is more action-oriented.

­How do you help your clients?

My coaching is all about following your own unique path. I help you discover what excites you, what is meaningful to you and what has been holding you back. Together we design a personalized action plan to help you move forward and stay on track.

I provide guidance, support, tools, and feedback. Accountability is a key element here. Research shows that people are much more likely to complete a task when they are held accountable for the results.

To me, coaching is an intimate, synergetic partnership. By combining intuitive perceptivity with cutting-edge coaching techniques, I help you shift your awareness and connect with a deeper sense of purpose. This will inspire you to take actions leading to sustainable changes.

What happens during a life coaching session?

We start by taking stock of your current situation and clarify your vision. I ask questions designed to challenge your assumptions, encourage your own insights and explore your options. I incorporate various exercises and meditation to facilitate the state of mindfulness. Once your goals and anticipated milestones have been defined, you will make a commitment to taking specific action steps before we meet next. We will then review the progress and make necessary adjustments until you reach your desired results.

New clients usually start with a 3-month commitment. Sessions last 60 minutes and are held biweekly. We will meet in person if you live in the area, otherwise, we can meet over the phone or video call (Skype, Whatsapp or Facebook Video) from anywhere in the world.

How does online coaching work?

We connect online with whichever platform you decide- Skype, Whatsapp or Facebook …and the coaching begins.

Benefits of telephone and online coaching :

It provides a focused conversation. Without visual distractions.
Because you’re being heard and not seen, you may feel more comfortable discussing your problems. People are usually more open
coaches and their clients are able to “hear” the conversation in a deeper way. certain things over the phone versus in person.
You don’t spend time traveling if you choose telephone or video coaching. Neither you nor your coach will have to overcome the frustrations or the delays and hassles of traveling.
The chances that you and your ideal coach will be within reasonable travel distance are extremely low. With telephone or video coaching, you will be able to select from coaches located almost anywhere in the world. Restricting your search geographically will greatly reduce the odds of finding just the right fit for you. By eliminating geographic restrictions, you can be matched with a coach that best meets your needs – not the closest coach but the best coach.
You can be more flexible in the times you receive coaching. Some clients have very busy schedules and they are only available late evenings and early mornings. If you don’t have time for a session during the working day, telephone coaching or video coaching is ideal for you.
Telephone coaching is very convenient. You will be able to receive coaching in any location you wish as long as you have a phone (or a laptop and internet connection for Skype).
Telephone or online coaching is less costly as you will not have to pay for the travel expenses and the fee is also cheaper than that of a face-to-face meeting.
If you still prefer to see your coach (and your coach to see you), you can connect via  webcam. Most new laptops have built in web cameras and microphones.
