Individual and Small Group Coaching
Grateful Joy Coaching provides individual and small group coaching for persons who would like to make a change and are seeking support and tools to assist with that change.
Ready for Change
The changes you want to make may be large or small. You may even be facing changes you did not choose and do not want. You may feel anxiety or eagerness, or anything in between, as you anticipate the changes that lie ahead. What matters in this work is that you are choosing to take steps toward change.
Coaching is Not Therapy
Although you may see a coach while you are also seeing a therapist, Grateful Joy Coaching is not therapy or counseling. If you are currently in therapy, it is suggested that you discuss coaching with your therapist to determine if it will fit with your therapy goals.
Discover Your Own Answers
Grateful Joy Coaching practices holistic and integral coaching. Working with you is based on the understanding that you are whole and ready to discover your own answers. Your coach will assist in this work by listening deeply and asking powerful questions.
Holistic coaching sees you as a whole being – body, mind, soul, spirit.
Levels of Consciousness
Integral Coaching joins together our levels of consciousness, the various ways we experience our lives, to help us have a more complete awareness of how we feel and what we want. It recognizes and appreciates the variety of ways we know and understand ourselves, others, and the world around us.
Oneness, Values, and Sense of Purpose
We are invited to tap into our sense of oneness and connection with what is greater than ourselves. We are encouraged to reflect on our personal values and our sense of purpose.
Intuition and Imagination
We begin to recognize and use our intuition and imagination. There are imagination exercises we can use to better understand what really matters to us.
We Have Our Own Stories
We realize we each have our own stories, and our own ways of understanding and describing ourselves and our experiences. We can also create our own stories as we explore ideas about how we want our lives to be.
Logical and Rational Thinking
As humans in the current world, we frequently use rational and logical ways of thinking to understand our lives and make decisions.
Integral coaching ties together all of these levels of consciousness. It acknowledges that we know and experience our lives in a variety of ways. The goal is to provide an environment where we can recognize these various parts of ourselves, so that we may find answers that come from who we truly are, reflecting what matters to us.
You Have Your Own Answers
Grateful Joy Coaching views you as the person who has the best answers for you. You will lead by what you are thinking and feeling.
Your Coach Follows Your Lead
Your coach will be with you as you explore and discover how you wish to proceed. Your coach will listen carefully, and ask questions that allow you to recognize what you want to do.
Small Achievable Steps
At the end of your session, you will decide what you would like to do to move toward your goal before the next session. You will be asked to choose a small action you know you can easily accomplish.
Small Successes Lead to Big Accomplishments
Even a small success can provide a sense of accomplishment and satisfaction, and can help you choose to take the next step on your path to making the changes you wish to make.
