Welcome to Radiant You Coaching
Have you noticed? The world seems to be changing at warp speed and as a result becoming increasingly complex. There are endless demands on our time, energy, and money. Technology is penetrating every aspect of our daily lives. We are constantly bombarded with information and choices. There are greater opportunities for creative self-expression, which can feel exciting and overwhelming. We crave more balance, better health, greater fulfillment, more meaningful relationships, and yet find ourselves mired in the gritty details of day-to-day living. Our world has changed dramatically in the last 50 years, and it’s not likely to slow down anytime soon. Radiant You Coaching is designed to help you gain the clarity, focus, confidence, and energy you need to live a meaningful, satisfying, and purposeful life in a complex and rapidly changing world.
What Makes You Come Alive?
An essential component of my work is helping you identify your core values. This is the You part of Radiant You Coaching. What’s most important in your life? What are your dreams and passions? What energizes you? What depletes you? More than ever before, each of us has the freedom to choose who we want to be and how we arrange and organize the details of our lives – what we want to do for work, how we want our families and relationships to be, how we want to express ourselves creatively, what our spiritual or religious preferences are, what type of community we live in. Trying to navigate life today without a conscious set of flexible values can leave you feeling scattered, exhausted, disconnected, overwhelmed, anxious, or even depressed. It’s like trying to take a long road trip to an unfamiliar destination without maps or GPS, or trying to build a house without a set of blueprints. When you consciously name your core values, it’s much easier to align your thoughts, actions, and habits so that you feel a sense of congruence, purpose, and enjoyment in your everyday life. I help you cut through the clutter and get to the core of what you want your life to look and feel like, then help you cultivate the skills and identify the resources you need to go out and do it. It’s my belief, as well as my experience, that the answers we seek lie within rather than without. I help you become more attuned to your own inner knowing and learn how to trust that often still small voice that’s waiting, patiently, to be heard. And if you’re already tuned into that voice, I help you find ways to give it fuller expression. This is the Radiant part of Radiant You Coaching. I help you become deeply acquainted with who you are, what you’re up to in this life you’ve been given, and how to let it all shine forth so that others may benefit and you feel fulfilled.
From Why to Why Not
Another key component of my coaching is to help clients move from old limiting patterns of thinking to open up fields of fresh new possibility. Often people approach challenges from the perspective of Why? “Why can’t I lose weight? Why do I always choose the wrong relationships? Why am I not successful at work?” This approach leads to an endless treadmill of guilt, shame, frustration, and dis-empowerment. I focus on helping clients ask more empowering questions such as “How can I . . . ? What if I . . . ? What do I need in order to . . . ?” These questions create a field of possibility, curiosity, and receptivity that magnetizes new opportunities and generates greater confidence, energy and momentum from your core.
Is Radiant You Coaching a Good Fit for You?
If you feel wary (or weary) of coaches / programs who promise you quick fixes, infinite abundance, endless joy and fulfillment, perfect health, I think you’ll find a more comfortable language with my coaching. If you recognize that life is a never-ending journey, are intrigued by the idea of learning how to fall in love with the process of living your life from the inside out, and are interested in exploring how you can make your life more meaningful, my coaching will probably feel like a good fit. My coaching is primarily inspirational (helping you to connect to your own creative energies and capacities) rather than motivational (providing you with external incentives / reasons to change). If you need someone to crack the whip, kick your butt, provide you with answers, motivate you to do something you feel like ‘should’ do, or learn how to change others, my coaching is definitely not for you. Nor is my coaching intended to help you live a ‘happy’ life. I help my clients learn how to live a dynamic, engaged, inspired and fulfilling life. Challenges, problems, frustrations are a natural part of life – they help us learn, grow and evolve, both individually and collectively. The goal is not to eradicate difficulties from our lives, but rather learn how to more confidently and skillfully navigate them while giving ourselves more fully to what we love. I help clients become more competent with the details of everyday living so that each moment feels more fulfilling, which adds up to a life well lived.
If any of the statements below resonate, I invite you to contact me to set up a free 30-minute consultation to answer your questions and give you an opportunity to talk about what you need. Call me at 435-259-0302 or email me at email@example.com
- You’re tired of feeling life is passing you by and you’re ready to do something about it
- You feel greater potential for yourself and your life, but aren’t clear what it is and how to bring it forth in the world
- You think of yourself as creative / artistic, but doubt the value of what you have to offer, don’t know how to make your creativity work for you, or know how to make a living doing it
- You don’t think you are creative, but are curious to learn how you can bring more creativity into your life
- You think of yourself as an introvert, and yet desire to feel more comfortable and confident in the world at large
- You know – or are at least open to the idea – that you are the creator of your reality, rather than life being a series of random circumstances and events over which you have little or no control, and you’d like to get a taste of what’s possible when you put yourself more consciously in the driver’s seat
- You are willing to invest some time and money in yourself in order to create a life that feels more like you
- You’d like to make friends with technology and find creative ways to make it work for you, rather than feeling overwhelmed by it
How Radiant You Coaching works
As a coach, I create a confidential, safe and welcoming place for you to slow down and drop below the surface of your everyday life to explore greater possibilities. We can meet in person in my downtown studio if you live in town or are here visiting, or via phone or Skype if you live elsewhere. In any case, our time together is a chance for you to explore deeper layers of you, flesh out creative impulses, uncover hidden resources, cultivate new skills and capacities, and grow into new possibilities.
Depending on your schedule and what you want to create for yourself, we can meet once a week or every other week. The 90-minute Introductory Session alone can help shed light on what you want to create for yourself and how you might be getting stuck, but honestly – it takes time to unwind old patterns of thinking and acting. Invest in yourself by committing to three or more sessions, and you’ll develop essential tools that will serve you well the rest of your life. Prices are listed below. Notice that all sessions are 90 minutes, so that there is ample time to explore and neither of us feels rushed.
I offer several options for how you can experience my coaching
First, I always offer a free 30-minute consultation to allow you to ask questions about me and my work, how it might benefit you, and to give you a chance to talk a bit about what you’d like help with. Just email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or call me at 435-259-0302 to set up a free session. You can also read some of my blogs to get a sense of my coaching style and the types of topics I explore with my clients.
If you’d like to move forward after this session, we’ll set up a 90-minute Introductory session where we identify more specifically what it is you’d like to explore / create / achieve in our work together. This session gives me a chance to get to know you better – who you are, what your background is, what makes you tick, what makes you come alive, where you tend to get hung up – and us to jointly create an intention for moving forward. In subsequent sessions we will focus on identifying your values, creating action steps to help you actualize your intentions, and work with any challenges that come up as you move forward.
