Personal development, education and growth shouldn’t stop after college.
Just over one year ago today, I signed up for a coaching certification — and in the process, started working with my own coach and personal development program for the first time in my life.
The program and the coach were integral and holistic, meaning we worked on body and somatic practices, doing self-observation, journaling, guided meditations; we considered my relationship with nature, sleep, my body, my breath, and more.
A year later, everything had changed. By moving out of my intellectual head and considering my whole body and being, I have been able to step into the person I always wanted to be.
As we head into 2020, a lot of people I know are considering working with a coach on their own self-development — thinking about ways they might grow personally, professionally, or better understand their purpose, what lights them up, and how they can get there.
In case you’re thinking about, here are some reasons I see people decide to work with coaches:
— You need an outside, perceptive perspective on where you might be blocking yourself or putting yourself in the wrong direction
— You suck at setting boundaries, know you need to do it to thrive in career and life, but need help figuring out to do it in a way that feels authentic to who you are
— You’re interested in personal growth but feel overwhelmed as to where to start, and need help with resources, guidance, and internal work
— You’ve been promoted to a management position at work but… nobody seems to be teaching you how to manage
— You’re going through a major transitional time (divorce, parenthood, empty-nesting, a layoff, new career, or more) and need an unbiased and solid presence to hold your hand and guide you through this period in your life
— Some or all of the above!
I can help. I’m a personal development and emotional intelligence coach, which means I work with you on goals to help you live a rich, fulfilling personal and professional life, that is created with intention and full access to your spectrum of emotions and relations to others.
It’s with all of this in mind that I’m launching my 2020 coaching spots and programs, and I wanted to let you know about them. I’m developing several different ways of working with me and am so excited to tell you more.
(If you are interested in listening to me to speak about these programs, you can click here to hear me talk about them on my podcast.)
(Oh, and PS: I work with men, women, all ages and stages of career & life, and I work virtually — so you can work with me from anywhere!)
One-on-one coaching with Catherine: This is a powerful six-month coaching engagement with me with the goal of getting you unstuck from any narratives, beliefs or experiences that are holding you back, and have you step forward into a whole, beautiful version of yourself that is capable of anything. The program is structured so that we have 3 months of weekly one-on-one hourly calls, with homework and assignments between each, customized for you. After the first 3 months, we move to bi-weekly hour-long calls, and a set of practices to help bring you forward into the new narrative we are creating for you. Good for: People who struggle with self-confidence, self-sabotage, anxiety, boundaries, people-pleasing. Apply for a free consultation and call. There are limited spots for this program.
Clarity calls with Catherine: Sometimes you just need a kick in the butt and somebody with great intuition and perspective to point out what you need to do next. Sign up for a one-hour clarity call to use me as a sounding board, wise mentor, intuitive guide, and whatever you need in the moment. This gets you a series of my assessment tests, a one-hour call with me, and a follow up with my recommendations for reading, practices, and journaling prompts to help you move forward through whatever you are facing at the time. Good for: Anybody who just needs an insightful outside perspective to get them unstuck from a thorny issue or way of being. Schedule the call here.
Group coaching: Moving from Inner Critic to Inner Coach: This is a small, supportive group coaching program for people who struggle with negative self-talk and low self-worth. We’ll start in February 2020 and go for 10 weeks, once a week, with homework and reading in between. Good for: folks who are tired of always beating themselves up. More details and how to sign up here.
New Managers: New to management? Being promoted to overseeing other people for the first time? You’ll want either my one-on-one 5-week New Managers Kickstart Program, our my New Managers Support Group coaching program (starts in February). Good for: folks who are interested in being conscious, empathetic, visionary leadership & management.
