Life Coaching: Coaching is a process of helping people to create goals, determine the detailed steps needed to reach those goals, and getting past any road blocks that may be encountered on this journey. Coaching leads people to identify and articulate their own personal values. We will find ourselves frustrated and unsuccessful if our endeavors to make things happen in the world are at odds with our own fundamental values. The coaching process examines six basic areas in our lives: relationships, professional concerns, financial health. personal health, emotional realities and spiritual perspectives. Goals can be set in any or all of these areas depending on the need that the client identifies.
Spiritual Life Coaching: Coaching that focuses on our spiritual life is a process of making discoveries at two levels: what values, truths, and wisdom are to be found at the depth of our own selves and what power, support, and challenge are to be found in transcending our own selves and finding fundamental truths in the universe. Spiritual Life Coaching does not advocate a particular religious or theological perspective but invites a person to find what he or she might find most meaningful.
Spiritual Direction: This is a process of helping people discover and use resources within a spiritual tradition. The Spiritual Direction that I offer is specifically Christian and seeks to help people develop a spiritual practice that will sustain them, challenge them, and encourage them to grow. While insights and activities discovered by other faith traditions will be utilized, including some breathwork and other insights from the Buddhist tradition, the overall content of the spiritual direction I offer is Christian. This kind of work might appeal to people who already have a lively Christian faith, who are not particularly interested in exploring other traditions, and who would like to incorporate more resources from the Christian tradition into their daily living.
Pastoral Therapy: This is often known as pastoral counseling offers help to individuals trying to sort out the issues in their lives. This process may extend from a few sessions to a more lengthy process depending on the desires and needs of the client. Pastoral therapy takes the spiritual needs and perspective of the individual client into consideration. The pastoral therapist does not attempt to impose his or her own beliefs on the client but instead seeks to help the client gain maximum support, understanding and insight from the beliefs that the clilent brings to the process.
Hypnosis and Hypnotherapy: Hypnosis is a powerful tool to help people access their inner wisdom, discover resources unavailable to the conscious mind, learn about ourselves and free us from bondage to ancient restraints we do not fully understand. I have been offering hypnotic interventions to people for 25 years. Perhaps hypnosis could be a tool to help you grow.
