What is a personal coach?

A personal coach is a trusted partner who can help you identify and uncover what keeps you from reaching your fullest potential. It is a one-on-one relationship that provides a supportive and non-judgmental space to help you create what you want for yourself. The Core Energy Coaching process helps you tap into your inner purpose and passion and connect that with outer goals and tasks to bring about extraordinary and sustainable results.

What types of people have personal coaches?

People from all walks of life work with professional coaches to help attain their goals. Personal coaches work with people in all areas of their life including relationships, career, finance, health and more. Working with a personal coach is not limited to any type of person, but is best for those who want to take initiative in their own life. People who hire a personal coach are committed to a more fulfilled life and are willing to do the work needed to get there.

How will personal coaching help?

The results will vary depending on what brings you to a personal coach. If you hire a coach to help you out professionally, personal coaching can help you make your current job more gratifying, gain better focus on managing your work, and market yourself more effectively. If your reasons are personal, you can find a coach to help you improve your relationships, resolve ongoing negative behaviors, improve your overall health, and grow spiritually. With personal coaching you can live a more balanced and enhanced life, and make your dreams come true!

What happens in a personal coaching session?

Each session is tailored to your needs. In the beginning, we will discuss what you are committed to accomplishing through our work together and we will begin to create a plan to achieve your goals. Periodically, I will give you assignments to help direct your progress. We will work together to acknowledge obstacles, explore alternate perspectives and celebrate successes. With the conclusion of each session, we will revisit your goals and evaluate the next steps that are needed to achieve these results.

Do I really need a personal coach, can't I just do it by myself?

Coaching can take you above and beyond your own personal limitations. More often than not, people try to achieve their greatest potential, but don’t even realize what stands in their way. A personal coach can offer an unbiased and objective perspective, and can help you realize your patterns and habits. Most people experience that they are more efficient when working with a professional coach and that this provides the opportunity for them to better realize their potential. Personal coaching can make your dreams attainable and will give you support and encouragement along the way.

How is coaching different from therapy?

While the personal coaching I provide can be therapeutic, it is not therapy. Coaching is distinct from traditional therapy because it is not designed to address psychological issues. While emotional issues may arise, the primary focus of coaching is to help you identify your goals, achieve them, and develop constructive habits and skills. There is little emphasis placed on the past with coaching, but instead the focus is on creating what you want now and in the future.

How long do people generally work with a personal coach?

To experience the effectiveness of a personal coaching program, I suggest you make an initial three-month commitment. At the end of the three months, we will evaluate progress and discuss options for continued coaching.

Is personal coaching confidential?

What we discuss will be held in confidence and not shared with others. However, our discussions are not privileged for legal purposes. The privilege of confidentiality that exists for the clergy, therapists and attorneys is not granted to coaching professionals. That said, personal coaching is a confidential process, and your personal information will always be protected.

Linda's demeanor and spiritual presence is very unique. She allows her intuition to lead her in a compassionate and sensitive manner. Her calm, non-judgmental approach makes one very comfortable to be open and candid. Linda guides ever so smoothly and effortlessly to help her clients find the answers they want and need. She has worked with me to see things from a new perspective and I recommend Linda without hesitation.

Linda entered my life a few months after the tragic passing of my 4 year old son, Aidan. I believe certain people are introduced to our life for a purpose. It has been apparent that Linda is such a divine presence in helping me to trust my own intuition that Aidan is with me and the love and emotional ties with Aidan will never go away. On several occasions, Linda amazed me with her ability to know my son had a message for me and it was always EXACTLY what I needed to hear at that moment. These messages have also opened the door for my own healing - that my son is at peace and will always be with me. I look forward to continuing my work with Linda during my journey of healing and transition to a renewed purpose in life.

My life coaching experience with Linda has helped me to discover my true self, be more specific about my goals and why they are important to me. Her understanding and encouragement have helped me enormously. It is really nice to have someone so intuitive in my corner. She has helped me to become a better me, and to continuously be more aware of how my thoughts influence my emotions. Her impact has been substantial in my personal growth.
