Don’t get me wrong, but I do find therapy exceptionally helpful for dealing with many life events. Trust me, I am speaking from experiences. And ask anyone who knows me, I would suggest therapy in a heartbeat.
About five years ago, during a conversation with a friend, while discussing my dislikes with my high paying tech job, she asked me to explore “life coaching”. I went home and jumped on the Internet and found so much information to absorb.
Eventually, I found my passion and calling in life. My inner core came screaming alive with each word I read, describing the profession of coaching. Something else became obvious while i was reading countless pages of materials. I noticed a pattern of a particular word kept appearing. The word was “Action”.
To me, when i tell people what I do for a living, I tell them that Life Coaching is a “Action” oriented process. It can transform your “feelings” and “thoughts” into “results”. The "results" people are wanting ranges from improving self confidence, stop worrying too much, listen less to others opinions or even finding one's purpose in life and so much more.
In my humble and humorous opinion (based on hundred of hours of personal experiences), therapy is very much “feeling” oriented. Don’t misunderstand me, experiencing and understanding your “feelings” is vital to human survival.
But the reality is that most people come to me for “results”. They are exhausted from “thinking” and “feeling” too much. Up all night, tossing and turning wondering how to quiet the mind or calm their nerves. These folks want relief and in some cases, are pretty desperate to make their issue(s) go away or quiet down.
Life coaching offers relief and sense of control in one’s life. During the process, you will be reminded of things you knew and learn some new tools you did not know.
So, if you are tired of “feeling” and “thinking” too much and seriously want some “results”, contact me for a free session. Think less, Act more.

This a great way to differentiate - action and the goal of seeing a life coach are one in the same - I really am so happy for you - I can't image a more perfect job for you -

Who doesn't want results? I agree that discussing feelings can only go so far; it takes the application and acceptance of new ways of doing to create lasting peace. I'm looking forward to speaking with you further.
