Transformational coaching is for people who do not need a therapist, but someone they can trust to lead them to significant progress in achieving more in their lives. In psychotherapy, people learn to change their dysfunctional behaviors so their lives can be more functional. Coaching is designed to help people who are already functional begin to live richer and more successful lives. Most of my coaching takes place over the phone. I offer Group as well as Individual Coaching.
You are probably thinking, “What in the world is a Transformational Coach?”
The best way that I can describe it is by telling you the following three stories:
I remember clearly standing at my kitchen sink washing dishes with tears running down my cheeks. I was twenty-five, was married and had two beautiful children. I could not figure out why I was so unhappy. I loved my husband and children, so I felt guilty about being so unhappy. The rest of the women in my family seemed happy taking care of home and family, so what in the world was wrong with me? It was like my soul was aching and I had no medicine for it. I knew deep, deep down that there was something else I was supposed to do but had no clue as to what, or how to find out what that something might be. After years of struggling, not feeling “good enough”, a divorce, going back to school, and meeting some extraordinary women, I finally figured it out. If I had had a coach to help me sort it all out, it would not have taken me so many years, but that was not an option at the time. In 1995, I heard about coaching and hired one, and that is when the transformation really began. I found what my soul had been searching for and developed the mental attitude that allowed me to succeed.
I had been coaching for a while when a woman called and asked me to be her coach. She had recently retired and was living on a small amount of money that she got each month from Social Security. Her dream was to start a DUI school. She had signed a lease for an office space and was currently sleeping there because she couldn’t afford an apartment and an office. She had no idea where the money was going to come from to pay me, but she had the first month covered and faith that it would come each month. We worked together for 10 years. When she decided to end our coaching relationship, she owned three DUI schools, a beautifully decorated home, and a very nice car. This is truly a transformational story.
I got a call from a man who was a Chief Financial Officer for a small company that had recently been sold. He didn’t want to continue on in his present position but had no idea what he wanted to do next, but he was very competent in many areas. After we worked together for about 4 weeks, I became a little concerned regarding how to help him with his decision. Actually, I was at a loss as to how to help him and as I listened to him on the 5th call struggling with his decision, out of the blue came these words into my head and I said, “If you could do anything in the world, and money was not an issue, what would it be?”. His response was “I would homeschool my children and travel around the world”. He did not call or cancel his next appointment or the next three appointments. I was convinced that I had been of no help to him, and he decided to terminate. Two months later he called and said, “Diane, I have been meaning to call you, but I have really been busy, and you are not going to believe what is going on. We have sold our house, bought a business at the beach and a large sailboat. We are going to homeschool our children, run the business in the summer months, and travel during the winter months.” I was dumbstruck, but extremely pleased. This story, too, is a transformational one.
Let me be a part of your transformation! Life is too short to stay stuck, unhappy, not live up to your potential, not have inner peace, or suffer from lack of faith in yourself.
