Is Life Coaching For You?
Maybe you have an idea of where you want to be in life, but despite your repeated efforts, you are unsure of how to get there. Perhaps you know that in order to be more successful, you need a strong, consistent and accountable person to support you to your next level? A life coach can be the right choice when you desire a real breakthrough in overcoming personal challenges, roadblocks, mental barriers and more. The right life coach can help you get laser-focused on your circumstance, your blind spots and what is really keeping you from the person you want to be.
Therapy Vs. Coaching
Therapists and life coaches both focus on helping you to improve your personal goals and positive outcomes. And while it is important to note that there are real differences between these two supportive individuals, there is nothing that suggests that one is better than the other one or that they can’t both work in tandem. In fact, there may be certain circumstances where an individual may opt to seek the services of one and be referred to the other because it is more in line with their current needs. Just remember that you always have a choice on selecting the option that is best for you, whether that means using one, the other or both. But if you decide that you need a reliable, dependable and supportive life coach, then I’m your GIRL. Let’s chat!
Trauma/Abuse Recovery Coaching
What is Trauma?
Trauma is defined by the American Psychological Association (APA) as the emotional response someone has to an extremely negative event. Trauma occurs when events overwhelm an individual’s capacity to cope with them.
While trauma is a normal reaction to a horrible event, the effects can be so severe that they interfere with an individual’s ability to live a normal life. In a case such as this, Trauma/Abuse Recovery coaching will help you cope with the stress and dysfunction caused by the traumatic event and restore you to a state of emotional well-being.
The main objectives of the Trauma/Abuse Recovery Coaching will be to provide you with all the tools needed to help alleviate symptoms and develop new positive experiences; develop and practice emotional intelligence, giving a language to the feelings that are experienced, or simply accepting the absence of language for others; allowing you to create new awareness and developing the capacity to envision a better future where life gets better over time.
Trauma/Abuse Recovery Coaching can help you develop awareness for what has happened, honor the person you are today, and embrace all the possibilities for your future. Trauma can be very tricky and can cause deep emotions to arouse even years after the initial impact. Trauma can include childhood/adulthood physical, sexual, or emotional abuse resulting in a deep, deep betrayal of trust. This is true at any time of life and especially so when it occurs in childhood. Other events that pose a threat to safety, well-being, and connection can also impact a person as trauma.
Most people don’t recognize themselves right away as trauma-survivors, and you might be wondering whether or not the symptoms you are experiencing are related to trauma. Don’t worry. Here’s a quick list of the main signs and symptoms of trauma that can be recognized and identified. If you think you may have trauma in your background, these are some important signals to watch for:
- Persistent trouble sleeping
- Hypervigilance – always on alert for danger
- Being easily startled
- Numbing out or feeling dead, disinterested, and disengaged
- Spacing out, dissociating, escaping in your imagination, or “going away”
- Failing to take care of yourself
- Persistent feelings of shame; a desire to hide or be invisible

Life Purpose Coaching
All of us have at some point wondered about our life’s purpose. It is one of the most essential questions the humankind has ever had to reflect upon. According to Google, there are more than 100,000 searches each month just for those two simple words. Why is that? Why do people care so much about their life’s purpose?
The answer is very simple. As humans, we have the desire to understand the meaning of life. In a fast-paced society, there are many people who might be creating success but not fulfillment. They have a feeling that there should be more to life, and they’re right. Most people, when asked “What makes you happy? What’s your purpose?”, have no response at all.
It can seem easier said than done, but finding out your true life’s purpose, is the only way to feel completely fulfilled, joyful, and satisfied.

There are several different dimensions of wellness, and, based on research that has been done across decades, many different components of what is defined as overall well-being. The truth is, living a life of purpose and meaning is essential for overall well-being, happiness and success. Living a purpose-driven life is essential for an individual’s success and happiness.
