Have you ever noticed how life can be a lot like a car trip? You make a plan to go somewhere, and then you discover the car needs fixing, or the road is under construction, and you have to detour!
Life, like cars, functions more smoothly and efficiently, when we pay some attention to how well the parts are working. And a timely tune-up is a smart investment to make sure things run more efficiently.
Some cars show the effects of years of neglect. When the engine only fires on three cylinders, or the transmission can't shift gears, you look for a professional mechanic who can repair the neglect of the past.
That's what counseling can do for people. By focusing on what isn't working and figuring out why, counseling helps to heal the problems and pain of the past that keeps intruding into the present.
But oftentimes your focus is on the future. Say you're planning a road trip adventure and you want everything to be in top form to get you there. In that case, it's only smart to take your car for routine preventative maintenance: get a tune-up, change the oil, and check the tires. You'll also want to get an up-to-date map to help you decide which roads to take, and how to make the most of the attractions you'll pass along the way.
This is what Custom Life Coaching is for. Life Coaching helps people who already have a pretty good idea of where they want to go, and want the best, most enjoyable trip getting there.
Life Coaching also offers the advantage of being extremely convenient and flexible.
Is it hard for you to find time for an office appointment? We can work by e-mail, if that's more convenient.
Do you want to have coaching sessions by phone? We can do that, too.
In fact, we can customize the coaching package that will best fit your needs, lifestyle, and budget!
