Who I Work With
Every season of life comes with its own set of challenges.
And woefully little guidance.
Wherever you are on your journey there is someone who has been there, conquered the obstacles, and can guide you along the way.
Taru Fisher, Woman of Wisdom
Get the support, insight and resources you need to turn your obstacles into opportunities, your pain into possibilities, and your transition into a triumph.
Having triumphed through many transitions, I have a special place in my heart for women in transition. I’m looking for women who are:
- recently divorced, or
- experiencing empty nest syndrome, or
- facing retirement (either voluntary or forced), or
- entering what I like to call “elderwomanhood”.
Together we will create extraordinary results by realizing the opportunities in the seeming obstacles, turning pain into possibilities, and triumphing through the transition. As you can tell, I love alliteration.
So, what is this process called “Coaching”? Is it like therapy, or consulting? There are a few similarities, but it has a very different focus.
Here are some FAQ’s:
- How is a Coach different from a Therapist?
The coaching client is capable of and actually eager to take action to move toward their goals rather than seeking to heal deep psychological pain.
- How is a Coach different from a Consultant?
Coaching is based on the relationship between the client and coach rather than on a consultants’ superior knowledge or expertise in a specific subject area. A consultant provides a product or result outside of the coaching sessions and may provide the results to a third party. The client-coach relationship is strictly confidential and shared with no one else.
- Why do people hire a Coach?
They embrace change and want to be far more than just “OK”; they want to be whole and integrated.
They love to learn, to grow, and to change and consider it an adventure.
They feel “stuck” and want someone to help them get moving again.
They need the support of a supportive, caring, and highly skilled to coach to help guide them through their transition.
