Empowers client to live out their answers to the profound question, ‘What kind of person do I want to be?’

"The coaching process greatly accelerates transformation by exploring deeply what is truly important, opening client awareness to new possibilities and empowering them to take actions that were not available before. It focuses a process that may take years to evolve on its own, if it does at all. Everyone desiring to transform their lives needs a coach."

Coaching Sessions empower clients to live out their answers to the profound questions, “What kind of person do you want to be? What impact do you want to make?” and take action to make real their highest potential in work and in life. Some examples of people seeking coaching include those looking to…

  • Make a major change, but are uncertain what that change is

  • Create a future that at the present time seems impossible

  • Successfully transition into a new job, retirement, or other life role

  • Create a new future, reach their highest potential, and make a difference in the world

Coaching sessions are typically offered as a package of 5-6 hour long sessions. For career-related coaching, sessions are typically spaced monthly. For personal coaching, sessions are typically bi-weekly.

Narrative Coaching offers a more mindful, holistic approach to coaching. Drawing from Zen practices and Jungian psychology, it uses the power of presence and archetypal symbolism to invite change and growth from the inside out. This is a such different approach to coaching that, even as a practitioner, I am transformed by it. Just learning its principles and mechanisms has changed my mindset and my life for the better.
— Michael Patrick
