“I did get what I was hoping from the [coaching] experience. I am not someone that likes to be told what steps to take and have someone’s plan forced on me. I needed someone to ask the right questions so that I could hear myself voice the answers. I am someone that needs to process things out loud. Your questions and guidance enabled me to hear it, understand it, and go for it.”

What is Life Coaching?

If you think of life as a journey, several things become apparent. Life journey suggests process, movement in a direction chosen by you, stops and starts, ever-changing landscape, times of great satisfaction and purpose, and times of frustration, doubt and fatigue. With the fast pace of life, few of us slow down long enough to take stock of where we are on this journey or to examine the direction in which we are headed. However, for many of us there is an ever-growing sense that while we a moving forward, our life is out of focus. With your own personal Life Coach, you can take a deep breath, look at your life, and intentionally move toward bridging the gap between where you are and where you want to be.

Life Coaching

Life coaching is a profession that helps people deal effectively with comprehensive life and career issues, life balance and direction, and purposeful living. Life Coaching is not counseling: it does not focus on the past. Life Coaching is about the present and the future, moving from what is to what could be. Life Coaching focuses on strengths, on clarifying vision, values, goals and determining ways to accomplish those goals. inFOCUS Life Coaching is for people who are ready, willing and able to begin making the changes they know are needed in order to bring clarity and purpose to their personal lives, work and/or ministry.
