As a coach I work with my client from within. The journey with him is in the discovery of his gifts, to notice the beauty of his inner being, and to have a full awareness of his completeness. My client may have aspirations to scale Mount Everest or to complete an Ironman Triathlon. He may wish to be an effective leader in his organization or to make a positive impact in the business world. He may be seeking a closer relationship with his spouse or a better understanding with his children. Or, he may just want to live life simply and to live it to the fullest. It is a holistic approach that engages the mind, body and soul of the person. It is a discovery journey, not in just seeking something outside of our being, but waking up to who we are and our purpose in this life. As a Life & Sports Coach, I am my client’s confidante, his counselor, his sounding board, his adviser, his cheerleader, his friend, his partner. I am also a messenger for the many enlightened beings, coaches and teachers of life, to share with my client lessons that are invaluable for his growth and development. Everything that I am in my capacity as a Life & Sports Coach, I serve as a guide & a catalyst for my client to bring out the best in him and to know his true worth.
