Managing our relationships, work, school, and life changes can feel overwhelming. You may be overthinking about friends, jobs and relationships, or having a difficult time developing and maintaining positive relationships with family, friends, or partners. While these challenges pile up, anxiety, anger, and sadness can start to cloud our thinking making it hard to tackle what we're experiencing on our own. Therapy can help us cope with what we're are going through, while also helping us learn more about ourselves along the way and regain control over parts of our life we felt we lost.

We're born into a world of stories about reality and about us. Our friends and our parents tell them to us. School, work and media tell them to us. And we start telling them to ourselves. In a time of mass media deception, false role models, unreal images, and dysfunctional families, our inner truth gets more and more hidden. The re-discovery of who we are is crucial for living a meaningful life. In Groundwork we become co-coonspirators in finding the real story about you, finding the authentic grounds of your existence, and helping you choose to be real.

I believe that every person is doing their best to navigate the many parts of life. When I think of therapy, I imagine someone rowing, and encountering challenging waters. Navigating unexpected circumstances requires thinking outside the box so they can reach their destination. Throughout their journey, they gain new perspectives because of both the challenges and beauty encountered along the way. I am here to row with you, entering the unknown together. I have always been passionate about holding space for others. I provide a safe, warm, approachable, and non-judgemental space for my clients to explore their thoughts and feelings.

You are a middle-aged adult with a family and a full-time job. Things seem to be ok on the surface, but deep down you have an exhausting feeling of disconnect from life (loss of interest in any activities, feeling emotionally numb, losing sense of direction in life). Anxiety and stress is taking you away from enjoying your life. You have a very low sense of self-worth and always highly negative towards yourself. You are very sensitive to criticism, can become triggered easily, often snap at kids and loved ones. You wish to change the way you feel about yourself and others, get a sense of connection and zest for life.

You have experienced trauma that has changed how you view the world. You find yourself unable to sleep or enjoy the things you used to in life because you're concerned about where you are and where you are going. Trauma and changes to the "normal" patters in our life can cause a person to feel lost and alone. If you are ready to start feeling like you did before this change or to forge a new path through this new normal, you are in the right place.
You find yourself asking how did you get here and where do you go now. You have had a monumental change in your life that has caused you to re-evaluate where you are. You have experienced trauma that has changed how you view the world. You find yourself unable to sleep or enjoy the things you used to in life because you're concerned about where you are and where you are going. Trauma and changes to the "normal" patters in our life can cause a person to feel lost and alone. If you are ready to start feeling like you did before this change or to forge a new path through this new normal, you are in the right place.

Life Coaching Counsellors

What can I expect from life coaching?

Clients and coaches will typically start by identifying the problem area(s) that the client hopes to address—then, the coach will help the client brainstorm potential solutions and explore concrete techniques to help the client attain their goals. Coaching is typically short-term and focused on finding solutions in the here and now, rather than exploring a client’s past. In addition to strategies aimed at the client’s specific concerns, coaches may encourage general stress management techniques such as meditation.

Can a life coach help treat anxiety?

Because the majority of life coaches are not licensed clinicians, they are not qualified to diagnose or treat anxiety. Anyone struggling with anxiety or another mental health condition should seek help from a licensed mental health practitioner. However, some coaching clients who struggle with subclinical anxiety report that working with their coach on other problems—such as career dissatisfaction or unhealthy habits—has a positive effect on their anxiety.

Can life coaching be done online?

Yes. While life coaching often happens in person, many coaches conduct sessions over the phone or via online platforms such as Zoom or Skype. Because life coaches are not subject to local licensing regulations in the same way that therapists are, they are able to see clients who live in other locations.

How long does life coaching last?

Life coaching tends to be a shorter-term process than therapy, though it does not always unfold over a specific period of time and is instead based on the coach’s or the client’s preferences. Coaching often takes place over three to 12 months but may be shorter or longer if necessary.
