Personal and Life Coaching Services Offered by Barbara Herzog
Coaching is a professional relationship that honors the client as the creative and resourceful expert in his/her life. It is an interactive process and an inspiring and empowering partnership that enables individuals to maximize their personal and professional potential. Coaching facilitates hope, options, choice, and meaningful action.
How can Life Coaching help me?
Do you want to leverage your strengths and feel more happiness and well-being? Or do you have some bad habits that are holding you back?
Is life throwing tough problems at you like not enough time, not enough sleep, not enough exercise, or challenges with relationships?
Therapy, not coaching, is the gold standard when problems are deep-seated. But millions of people have found coaching a great way to grow and flourish.
Some people want to begin with a self-assessment of key aspects of their lives, and then decide on goals. Others come with specific goals in mind, and want to target their work on one or two specific goals.
What is my coaching process?
Depending on your wishes, we look at your goal(s), barriers that are holding you back, your signature strengths, and finally, new ideas and actions — small steps at a time — that can get you to your goal. Then I provide support and accountability as you move toward your target.
Positive Psychologist Martin Seligman, in his book titled Flourish, sums up a philosophy I share:
“If we want to flourish and if we want to have well-being, we must indeed minimize our misery, but in addition, we must have positive emotion, meaning, accomplishment and positive relationships.”
I am committed to helping my clients tap into their strengths and celebrate their unique values, developing perspective and courage to move forward during times of uncertainty, and reach a higher level of happiness and well-being.
Some of the most common issues I help clients address are:
“How can I create the life I want?”
“How can I stop criticizing myself and worrying about the future?
“I’m going through a big life transition.”
“I want to quiet my inner critic and nurture my inner champion.”
“How can I gain more self-confidence?”
“I need a personalized toolkit of action strategies.”
“I’d like better coping and relationship skills.”
“I have a big goal and need support.”
“I have too much stress and not enough work-life balance.”
” I’m stuck and have lost motivation.”
“I’ve got great plans but I’m just not implementing them.”
“I want more meaning in my work and life.”
