“Without a doubt, the purpose in my life is to empower others to empower themselves.” Tom Ellis Tom Ellis, CPC

In the 30+ years of working with people, I have had the privilege of serving others, in multiple roles, such as a teacher, trainer, artist, counselor, case manager, IT support, advocate, hospice volunteer, mediator and now as a Life Coach.
Additionally, each of the roles mentioned above has offered me the chance to work in multiple industries, such as Education, Non-for-Profit, Legal(Mediation), Manufacturing, Technology and Human and Social Services.
My coaching style is unique, in comparison to others in the Coaching industry. For example, having diverse employment experiences affords me the opportunity to fully understand and appreciate the various needs, expectations, demands and experiences a client may be struggling with.
"We do not focus on problems from the past but rather on the possibilities for your future."
Also, I have the ability to switch between various roles, such as a counselor, life coach, educator, trainer, trauma survivor, advocate and a few more. Having these roles allows me to be exceptionally attentive to the unique needs of my clients.
"One of my primary goals in my practice is to only offer practical, reliable, simple tools that I have personally used, to help my clients achieve the results they want in their lives."
Additionally, my coaching style includes humor, honesty, soulfulness and being solution-focused. While working with my clients, I encourage them to focus on what is right with them, what has worked in the past and what lessons they learned from the past. This allows us to focus on the big picture and to tap into their strengths, life experiences, beliefs, values and skills, in achieving the results they desire.
Sometimes I meet with clients outside.
In closing, I take personal development very serious at the core of my being. In doing so, I am securing and obtaining a lifestyle that brings peace, meaning, purpose and a sense of fulfillment.
If you are like me, dedicated to your own personal development and have the desire for better results in your life, I invite you to consider coaching as an invaluable and supportive resource. You won't regret it.
So, I leave you with a quote from Robert Schuller, "What would you attempt to do if you knew you could not fail?" So, if you knew there were opportunities to improve your life in painless ways, would you take them?
