Coach S.T.A.R. (Support Towards Amazing Results) was formed in 2013 with a specific focus on empowering women and teen girls, especially as it relates to self-esteem and relationship issues as a result of past sexual abuse, teen pregnancy, and young motherhood. I help my clients assume control over their own lives by challenging limiting beliefs, inspiring change, and developing creative problem-solving skills. Coaching sessions are provided via telephone and video call.
There are 5 steps to my coaching process:
I help clients recognize false beliefs by questioning their relevance and challenging their validity. Some examples are: Is this the client’s own belief or is it an adopted belief? Is it logical? Is there anything in the client’s life or personality that refutes it? Identifying which beliefs are not true for an individual is the first step toward freedom and success!
I help clients replace false beliefs with personal truths. You can’t just “get rid” of a belief. The human brain doesn’t work that way. Much like bad habits, discarded limiting beliefs must be replaced with new ones!
I teach and help develop clients’ problem-solving skills. I show clients how to break problems down into small pieces and view them from a solution-based perspective. My personal mantra is: “There’s always a way.” Thinking with less limits and more truth automatically opens up creativity and allows clients to “see” options they never could before.
I help clients identify goals and create an action plan. Clients and I work together to figure out what they want and how to get it. This step includes assignments, due dates and reminders. This step fosters mutual commitment and accountability between clients and me. Also, together we celebrate the achievement of mini-goals along the way!
I provide clients consistent motivation, feedback, and support. Truly, this is the foundation of the coaching experience. From start to finish, it is my job (and I consider it my absolute privilege) to push and cheer clients on the path to success!
