Life coaching focuses on an individual’s entire life as it relates to goal setting, outcome creation and change.
The true emphasis in coaching is on action, accountability, and follow–through. Since coaching is forward moving and future-focused, it supports personal and professional growth and development, based on individually-initiated change, while the coach provides a supportive, discovery-based framework. While positive emotions are typically the natural outcome of great coaching, the primary focus is on creating strategies for changing your work or personal life.
Coaching is for people who want to add that extra edge in order to move forward to make the changes they want in life… it is the right choice if:
- You are ready to focus on yourself and nurture your personal development
- You are prepared to work toward your goals
- You feel collaboration and accountability will help you become unstuck
- Your commitments to yourself and others out of balance
- You are willing to let go of limiting beliefs and negative self-talk
- You would like to increase self-confidence and resilience
- You want a clearer vision… Or your vision is so big you’re overwhelmed
- You are clear about where you want to be, but you continue to make self-destructive decisions that keep you tied to your bad habits
- You’re in transition in your life
- You’re craving more purpose in your life
The Inside-Out and Outside-In Coaching Model
Integrative Life Coaching Toolbox
Using over 20 different healing modalities, the integrative approach to life coaching uses many powerful tools and techniques to help clients move their lives from where they are to where they want to be.
What It Is
The Inside-Out and Outside-In Coaching Model is a proprietary integrative coaching model that leads to lasting positive change. This involves coaching from the outside moving inward (physical body system moving inward toward and through the mental, emotional, and spiritual systems) to create behavior modification and effective strategies. At the same time providing treatment from the inside (mental, emotional, spiritual body systems) moving outward (toward the physical) to help clients overcome core issues, limiting beliefs, negative psychological patterns, and habits.
Why It’s So Effective
Most coaching models, whether Outside-in or Inside-out, risk the potential recurrence of the problem in another area, because not all four areas of the body system have been addressed in regards to the presenting issue. For instance, from the Outside-in perspective, which is what most physical modalities use, i.e., doctors, personal trainers, etc., the ailment or physical challenge gets treated, without necessarily identifying and clearing the underlying roots of the problem, i.e., common thought patterns, negative emotions, etc., which led to the problem to begin with. This can cause the problem to potentially recur or just morph into another problem in a different area. An excellent example of this is losing weight, only to regain the weight, and then some, or to go to the opposite extreme.
Using the Outside-In and Inside-Out model, the presenting issue is addressed in all four areas simultaneously, thereby creating lasting and permanent change, and preventing recurrence or relapse.
