What Is Coaching?

What My Wonderful Clients Say

  • Reaching out to Linda was one of the best decisions I have made. She was there for me when I desperately needed someone to make sense of all of the thoughts going through my head. After every time I finished talking to her, it felt like a big weight was lifted off my chest. She gets it! I went back and forth so much. Do I stay in an unhappy marriage or leave? Linda never pushed me in one direction or the other and stressed that staying or leaving would be equally difficult. I had to look at what the future would hold for me if I continued on the path I was on. I was always worried about my children. Would they have a bad childhood if I left? Linda was always so patient with me! I had so many questions for her and she helped me clear my cluttered mind and guided me through the process. Once I made my decision, she strongly encouraged me to always put forth 100% effort, whether I stayed in my marriage or left. Linda was very supportive and compassionate and helped me focus on what was really important in my life. She would tell me that the only thing I have control over, is myself. My own actions! I had a fear of change. I blamed myself for a long time for the change in all of our lives. She assured me that everybody will be okay! My kids would not have a bad childhood simply because I left an unhappy marriage. I was always so comfortable talking to Linda and felt like she could relate to what I was going through. Linda is a natural coach and incredibly talented! She certainly found her calling and now she can share her amazing gift of helping other with the rest of the world!

  • Honestly, I’m surprised that it works! I always thought coaching would only be effective if labor intensive. Or, if not, that maybe it was all fluff and didn’t really work at all – just offering a momentary good feeling. I’m surprised that my brain responds to the rationale of just talking it out. … I am glad that I have gotten the to share problems in my life in a warm and trusted situation. I have friends and family that I could never tell these things to. [When I first started the process], I felt stuck. I was not unsure about what I wanted in my life at all, but just felt that I was being encumbered with circumstances that were hindering me from getting there. With wise listening and gentle steering, Linda can help you to see past the roadblocks in your journey. She doesn’t tell you what to do or think, but she helps you clarify your own vision. Afterwards, you realize that she was giving you the keys to unlock the doors and move forward. She comes across as a trusted friend who understands and cares. That makes all the difference, because it helps you become more vulnerable so you can be honest with yourself. … I’ve been on a journey of realizing I’m stronger than I thought I was.

Break Out Of Your Comfort Trap!

You know what a comfort trap is, right?  It’s that familiar job you go to each day.  It’s not a bad job and you do it well, but it doesn’t satisfy you any more.  It’s the relationship that you have been hanging on to, even though you know it was over a long time ago.  Comfort traps come in many forms.  It can be a relationship with a family member whose behavior feels toxic to you, but you can’t bring yourself to put distance between yourself and that person.  A comfort trap is any situation that you dream of escaping, but you are too afraid to leave.  It feels safer to stay where you are, because change is scary.  

I felt this way too, until I realized that being in the same situation five, ten or fifteen years in the future, was a thought that was even more terrifying. 

So, how does one get out of a comfort trap?  By taking small incremental steps toward the outcome you want to see. The first steps are generally speaking, fairly easy.  Each step you complete, leads you to the next step in the process.  It’s a simple process, but it has to be acted upon to work. As your Coach, I will guide you each step of the way until you have made the change you want to make.

The same process applies to any comfort trap you want to break out of.  Take the first step and the momentum will build. One day, you will look back and wonder what you were so afraid of.  

Let’s Have A Conversation!

What bothers you about your current situation?  If you don’t do anything different than what you are doing now, you will still be in your comfort trap next year and maybe the next five years. Ugh!

Let’s set up a call to talk about your comfort trap and what you would rather have happening in that area. Together, we will design a way for you to get unstuck and moving toward the life you really want to be living.
