Questions People Ask Me about Life Coaching
  • What is Life Coaching? [+]
    Life coaching helps you create the life you want. Whether you need help discovering more about yourself and what you want in your life or whether you need some steps toward creating positive change, life coaching can support and encourage you to reach your goals. It really is amazing what can happen when you take the time out to focus on yourself and what gives meaning to your life. You create your life, every day, with every choice you make. Sometimes we make decisions that work against us and we find ourselves stuck or even moving farther away from what we want. A coach will help you become aware of the beliefs that may be working against your greatest efforts. You deserve the best from your life! Make the decision to take your life back! Why wait?

From the Clients

I thought my life was pretty good, overall. But learning from Carol was the best thing I ever did, and I feel happier than I ever could've imagined..

I wake up every day to an overwhelmingly busy schedule: feeding the kids, making lunches, sitting in traffic, and spending nine hours in an office with a huge workload. I come home only to find more work waiting—dinner, cleaning, a family needing this from me, that from me—it never stops. I wanted to find a better way to give to my family, spend time with my husband, find some time for myself, and deal with the stress. Keeping up this pace was wearing me out. So I figured I'd try a few sessions with Carol. Well, I still have busy days but I'm calmer, and can get through them much easier now, without the overwhelm. And my family is all the better for it because now I'm in a better mood, and they are too.

I had started to wonder why I was not as able to keep up with the things in my life as I once had. After speaking with Carol, I gained insight and an inner peace that came over me for the first time in a long while.

I feel Carol is a natural-born counselor. She has a very soothing persona and ability to get right to the heart of the matter.

I resisted calling Carol for a very long time. I was having problems in dealing with my teenage kids and their attitudes. After several sessions, I was able to not only deal with them in a better way but also greatly reduce the stress I was feeling. Interestingly, my new attitude affected their attitude and it is like they have straightened out as well.

I highly recommend Carol for any serious problems as well as for clarity on those little nagging thoughts that we all have from time to time.

I was becoming frustrated with the massive inundation of things I had to handle every day, not only in my job but at home as well.The layoffs in my workplace resulted in more workload, and many days I have to stay later to compensate. This puts much more stress on me at home. I would like one night to just relax and maybe watch TV or read, but by the time I finish cooking and tidying up, spending time with the kids and my husband, it's already late. I really needed to find a way to handle this stress better, and be able to go to work without the dread I was feeling. I'm not a whiner by nature and I didn't like the way I was feeling. Finding out about Carol was the best thing that could have happened to me. She is such a delight! Because I'm not a complainer, I didn't want a session to be a complain-fest. She was proactive, which is what I like. She understood, but yet we worked through this in a very succinct manner. I am pleased to say I have gotten my balance back and some "me" time too. Highly reccommended!
