There are times in your life when the path beneath your feet seems too unsteady to move forward. You may want help to deal with significant setbacks in life. I can help you.
Sometimes, we get stuck in a "problem loop". Understanding how thoughts, feelings and actions interact, you can change negative beliefs that are stressing you out and make lasting changes that improve your life. While I don't ignore the past, much of our conversation focuses on the present and the future. This reflects a basic belief that problems are best solved by focusing on how you would like your life to be, and moving toward that, rather than focusing too much on what might have been had you been able to rewrite the past. Read more here about the effectiveness of this approach.

Group coaching is a popular, affordable and interactive alternative to individual coaching and follows a similar plan as described above, but on a focused topic shared by the group.
Coaching is great for solving complex problems because it guides and supports group members to closely clarify the problems, identify powerful strategies to solve them, and specify relevant and realistic actions to implement those strategies.
Support and accountabilities can be used to ensure that group members actually apply the content that they got from education provided in person, through book studies, etc.
Team building and Networking
Members' strong focus on helping each other can quickly form a close and confidential bond in which members come to rely on each other to achieve individual goals. Because members count on each other, they share their needs, open and honest feedback, and useful and practical resources among each other.
Coaching has been proven to be a powerful means to cultivate change in people. Organizational change, including cultural change, requires change in people as well. In some formats of group coaching, the members not only get coached, but they practice coaching.
The groups can be lower cost than individual coaching because the members do much of the work in the groups.
There are many skills that group members will develop, regardless of the purpose of the group. For example, they will build skills in presenting to a group, asking for and accepting help, listening, asking good questions, action planning and learning from reflection.
Group coaching is interactive and filled with the creative force of many minds coming together to encourage change in each other. There is often as much laughter as there is learning.
Group coaching involves weekly sessions for a period of 2-3 months (depending on topic). Each session is approximately 60-90 minutes. Work within the sessions is a combination of individual and group activities. Read below for some examples of questions/topics for group coaching.
