Hi, I’m your new certified holistic life coach! Who else wants to improve their careers, relationships, health, and lives?
Just about everyone has a vision of his or her ideal life. Maybe you’ve always dreamed of being a successful writer, musician, or corporate executive. But you haven’t made it a reality yet.
Then maybe what you need is a holistic life coach. Just like the people who push athletes to greatness in sports, holistic life coaches push their clients to find success and satisfaction from their job or lifestyle.
Unlike in sports, holistic life coaches don’t focus on changing certain behaviors, like correcting a bad golf swing. According to the International Coach Federation (ICF), they develop their clients’ overall strengths and abilities.
Holistic life coaches provide the drive and guidance their clients need to achieve something or engage something in their lives. We help our clients find the motivation and tools to get to their emotional, financial, social, spiritual, occupational, physical, intellectual, and environmental health goals. The results they want to create in their lives generally fall into three categories:
- Performance goals (for example, improving results as a business owner, eliminating clutter, or meeting daily standards for numbers of contacts with potential clients)
- Learning goals (for example, improving public speaking, becoming a parent who is patient with one’s children, or learning how to meditate and do it consistently.)
- Fulfillment goals (for example, achieving work-life balance, a satisfying relationship with a spouse, or the ability to work from the heart as well as from the head, which is a common issue for corporate leaders.)
Unlike a nutritionist or physical therapist, who makes specific diet and exercise suggestions, a holistic life coach will help you make better general choices that fit your lifestyle.
I’ve been struggling with osteoarthritis is my knees for years. After consulting with John, he recommend a supplement containing cherry fruit extract, boswellia, and white willow bark. This got me back in motion and offered me some relief finally!
John taught me that I may be at risk for CoQ10 deficiency because I take statins to lower my cholesterol and statins block CoQ10 synthesis in the body. I was experiencing side effects of the statin therapy such as fatigue and aching joints and muscles. John suggested supplemental CoQ10 and the side effects have disappeared!
