It is my goal to assist you in creating and implementing a plan that moves you along the roads of your life with less encumbering interference and gets you where you want to go--be it in the area of career, health, relationships or in any other part of your life that feels stalled. I have chosen a program name that carries GPS as it's acronym for much the same reason you put one in your car--it's helpful to have directions when you don't quite know how to get somewhere.
I want to help you ‘feel better’-- and I mean those words quite literally. A felt and dealt with emotion leaves your highway (your nervous system) much freer of traffic. If you ignore your dashboard settings, eventually you're stuck at roadside, often for hours, waiting for Triple A to rescue you. Had you heeded the low gas gauge, Check Engine light or reckless driver in the next lane, you would have spent some time, attention and anxiety tending to it but in the end gotten back on the road with much less trouble and stress.
My coaching style blends aspects of 'talk therapy', Energy Psychology and EFT (a form of meridian tapping) to assess a person's strengths and weaknesses, clarify goals and loosen resistances which can consciously (or more often unconsciously) get in the way. It should be noted that psychotherapy and coaching are decidedly different models and if you have had years of the former with limited or incomplete results, the latter approach might bring you some new angles on some old problems. If you have not had prior therapy but have a defined emotional obstacle that you keep bumping in to, this may also be an approach for you to consider.
As far as EFT goes, it is one of the most effective and exciting techniques I have encountered in years. It combines aspects of Western psychology with its narratives, cognitions, emotions and beliefs, with Eastern medicine which sees blockages or disruption in the energy system as being the the root cause of disease or dis-ease. Tapping on certain points on the body while talking or thinking about a problem at the same time helps the nervous system 'open up' and flow more freely, optimizing the possibility of bringing entrenched problematicalpatterns to a new place of resolution. When a memory or maladaptive belief born of painful experience can reach this point it may forever remain unpleasant, but no longer serves as an impediment in terms of moving forward with your life. There is far more to say about EFT and its applications as well as the rest of this work, which will be more fully discovered as you begin to engage in the process. I like to say : 'Growth is a contact sport.'
That’s the overview of my approach. As you can see, I believe getting to and clearing conflicts trapped in your system is imperative in terms of clarifying and reaching your goals; and while as I've already stated, coaching is not psychotherapy, my extensive professional background has helped me develop expert listening skills, great empathy, and a keen eye for life themes. These abilities are invaluable in the delivery of effective coaching.
I am currently accepting new coaching clients into my practice. Sessions may be held in person (at my NYC office) or long distance via phone or Skype and may be purchased as an individual session or in one, two or three month packages (consistency is optimal in the coaching model). I offer a complimentary 30 minute clarity session (by phone or Skype)to better determine what your needs and goals are, and to learn more how my services can help you open up and re-boot your life.
There are a number of coaching styles out there and I encourage you to research the options and pick one that fits your needs and personality.
Whatever your route, take it! And I wish you all best with your continued growth.
