My Method

My approach at Whole Self Coach is about genuine connection and tailored transformation. Here’s how I work to empower you every step of the way:


Discovery: We start with an in-depth discovery session to uncover your goals, challenges, and aspirations. Understanding your unique journey is the foundation of our work together.


Connecting with Your ‘Why’: Identifying and connecting with your deeper motivations is crucial. We’ll explore the core reasons behind your goals to ensure you’re driven by purpose and passion.


Honest Conversation: Open, honest conversations are at the heart of my coaching. I provide a safe space to express yourself freely, ensuring you feel heard and understood.


Some Fun: While personal growth is a profound journey, it doesn’t have to be all work and no play. We’ll incorporate elements of fun to keep the process enjoyable and engaging.


Action Steps: Together, we’ll create clear, actionable steps that align with your goals. These steps will provide a roadmap for your journey and keep you on track.


Experiential Exercises: Practical, hands-on exercises help bring our work to life. These activities are designed to deepen your insights and facilitate the real-world application of our sessions.


Tailored Approach: No two clients are the same, so I tailor my coaching to meet your specific needs and circumstances. Your program is uniquely yours, designed to support your individual growth.


Empowerment: My ultimate goal is to empower you to take control of your life. You’ll gain the confidence and skills to overcome obstacles and achieve lasting transformation through our work.


Total Transformation: This is more than just coaching; it’s a journey to total transformation. Together, we’ll unlock your potential and help you become the best version of yourself.


No-BS Approach: I believe in a straightforward, no-BS approach. I’ll provide honest feedback and challenge you to push beyond your comfort zone, ensuring genuine progress. Transformation requires dedication and clarity. You must be ready to put in the work, as I only partner with those who are fully committed to their authentic development and serious about their journey.
