What is coaching with amy?

My clients say that coaching with me is a wake up call to get up and get moving in their personal and professional lives. I coach individuals of all ages who want to feel alive in their bodies, mind, emotion and spirit. If you are feeling unaware and uninspired, we can shift you into feeling fulfilled and balanced in all areas of your life. If you feel numb or dulled, we can bring intention, creativity and energy to your endeavors. Together, let's wake up and shake up your system and bring you into full awareness and life fully lived.

Co-Active Coaching is an experience of personal and professional development unlike other kinds of coaching. Based on the Co-Active Model, it begins by holding the client as naturally creative, resourceful and whole, and completely capable of finding their own answers to whatever challenges they face. The job of a Co-Active Coach® is to ask powerful questions, listen and empower to elicit the skills and creativity a client already possesses, rather than instruct or advise.

The Co-Active Model balances self-awareness, a keen agility with relationships, and courageous action to create an environment where individuals can be deeply fulfilled, connected to others and successful in what matters most.

The “Co” in Co-Active suggests relationship, connection, intimacy and collaboration. Thus, the “Co” in us is curious, listens deeply, hears nuance, holds space for others, intuits and nurtures.

The “Active” in Co-Active stands for power, direction, action and manifestation. So, the “Active” in us is courageous, has clarity and conviction, takes charge and achieves goals.

The magic happens in the dance between “Co” and “Active” — action that arises from presence, deep relationship and context…and presence that is channeled into dynamic action and contribution. Balancing and blending these energies allows us to move out of an “either/or” state of mind into a “yes/and” paradigm.

what can i expect?

We begin by designing our alliance — creating a relationship that is safe and courageous. Each session is a bead on a thread, connected to sessions prior, and yet, unique to that day and moment in time.

Through conversation, powerful questions, visualization and movement, you and I co-create each session to bring about self discovery, a new perspective and clarity. You will choose action items, accountability and inquiry questions for ongoing learning and self understanding.

A session is 45 minutes to 1 hour.
