Maybe you’re just in transition as you Age to a New Stage!
From “Cradle 2 Grave,” we all undergo life challenges and lessons. It does not matter what age, gender, ethnicity, or religion describes you. We all have to “go through stuff” and learn from our experiences. I’m here to listen and to support you as you change your life. I enjoy working with people of diverse cultures, races, and backgrounds. We will enrich one another.
Getting Started Together for
Life Coaching or Spiritual Counseling
FREE Initial Consultation
I do not have a crystal ball, but we both will have insights to discuss. We can have a short (up to 30 minutes) conversation, in advance, to see “if I’m your cup of tea” before we schedule a full session. I hold everything that occurs in the sessions and all the information about you in strict confidence.
Quick Help to Change Your Life
Sip & Share Sessions on Zoom
For the simplest, least formal way to use me as a sounding board, to be a good listener when you just want to talk, and to keep things private and confidential, feel free to book me for a Sip & Share session on Zoom or other online venues.
I am an empathetic, non-judgmental, intuitive listener, and a person who has overcome a wealth of life, business, personal, and spiritual growth challenges.
Often, people use me as a sounding board for ideas, to give spiritual, relationship, or business guidance, and to critique the work they do before they submit it to a boss or in public. I can do this in a counseling/advising capacity instead of or in addition to a formal life coaching format.

Change Your Life: “The Whole Enchilada”
AND, What Is the Difference Between Coaching and Counseling?
Keep reading or watch this short video for the answer to that question. (Feel free to follow me on that Change Your Life Facebook page, too.
When to Use a Life Coach
A Life Coach may help you make life transitions in a no shame, non-judgmental, and practical way. My practice is based on a holistic approach. It recognizes body-mind-spirit-and-emotions connections. We might use creative combinations of meditation, diet, physical exercises, and creative mind exercises. I can teach you all you need to know to proceed. In addition, I shall customize the plan for you after we have agreed on your goals.
When you decide to change your life, a Life Coach assists you in identifying issues, setting goals, and taking consistent, practical actions to release old habits of thinking or behaving. Our objective is to establish new productive patterns.
YOU determine the degree of success by how committed you are to making the changes and to doing the work between meetings with your coach.
- I offer consultations to help you find your own answers because no-one knows better than your soul and your instincts what is best for you.
- Sometimes, it’s just a matter of getting the head (mind) and heart (feelings) to get in sync with one another.
- Sometimes, you actually know what you need to do, but you don’t want to do it, preferring the safety of the known, current situation. You may just need encouragement to follow your own inner wisdom.
- On the other hand, you might be trying to overcome fears, phobias, limiting beliefs, PTSD, or emotional baggage that does not serve you well. We will explore your goals, make a plan, and I’ll give you lots of resources, which could include classes, journaling, specific tasks to accomplish by a certain deadline, NLP (Neuro-linguistic Programming) and/or Transpersonal Hypnotherapy techniques.
- I’ll share ideas about options you could pursue. Then, we’ll make a plan, with me as your guide and your accountability partner for a specific span of time.
I will be available to you by phone or on-line between sessions, if needed. I cannot do the work for you, but I can help you be accountable and can be your cheerleader, giving you support and/or guidance through the “ups and downs.” If I don’t know how to do something, I’ll try to help you find someone who does by giving you excellent referrals.
See below for examples of the kinds of Life Coaching I provide.
Change Your Life ~
The Spiritual Counseling Question
I was certified in spiritual counseling years ago. In addition, I am ordained in a non-denominational church and am licensed to provide spiritual counseling. However, I do not base my work on any particular religion. My approach fits The Urban Dictionary definition of “sounding board: ”A sounding board is a good listener, and either confirms what they hear or offers an opinion when the sound they hear is “off key.”
Spiritual Counseling can cover all the same topics (and more) that are addressed by Life Coaching. The difference is that it is a less formal program, and tends to get into “the why” of issues, rather than concentrating solely on how to proceed in a practical manner.
Counseling, as described in my video above, is much more interested in finding the underlying causes of things, addressing emotional issues, and understanding – rather than just overcoming – situations. There are so many tools to help us! We might use NLP (Neuro-linguistic programming) and/or hypnotherapy in some of our sessions. We might employ meditation or really tiny tips that help a person get through a day. We certainly will pay attention when we uncover the cause of thoughts or emotions that limit your activities and/or your happiness. If physical pain is involved, I have some suggestions for that, too.
Some Tools I’ll Teach to Change Your Life
I am certified as a Master Transpersonal Hypnotherapist and have a number of other certifications. As a result, a session with me could employ whatever techniques we find useful at the moment. Sessions, typically, last one hour at a minimum.
Neuro-linguistic Programming (NLP)
People often want to invest much more time with me. For example, after 2 or 3 initial sessions, you might choose “An NLP Breakthrough Session.” That is an intensive session that consumes about five hours. Trust me, it is well worth it, if you’re trying to overcome things like PTSD, or other fears and phobias.
I’ve Worked with Prisoners, Homeless People, Folks who were Sexually or Otherwise Abused, Addicts, and More
I have worked in prisons, in shelters, with people suffering from AIDS, addictions, sexual and emotional abuse, and more. It is pretty hard to shock me. My purpose is not to judge, but to help folks release a sense of shame and to move forward with love in their hearts for themselves and others.
My greatest gift is the ability to see the beauty in people who cannot see it in themselves. I’d love to share that gift with you so that you can see yourself through my eyes.
Change Your Life ~ Career and Business Coaching
I also have wide-ranging management experience in both the private and public sectors. That includes international corporations, “mom & pop” companies, non-profits, higher education, and state government. Clearly, my background and qualifications are unusually varied. What I’ve accomplished can be applied to helping you. You can learn more by checking out my LinkedIn site although it needs to be updated! You also should see my About page right here on this website.
My Change Your Life coaching could involve career information. I teach basic business and computer skills classes. I know a lot about job hunting in this age of technology. “It ain’t like it used to be.” I also teach a course on whether to and how to start a business. I have an extensive work background in “Corporate America,” non-profits, higher education, and small businesses, so I can share many things learned.
Here is a link to my business, writing, editing, and training website where you can see some of the classes I teach for my company, My Persuasive Presentations, LLC.
Here is the link to my Facebook page where I post tips for My Persuasive Presentations, LLC.
Change Your Life ~ Habits and Addictions
Lots of people seek Life Coaches for the purpose of breaking habits, like poor nutrition, cigarette smoking, or other addictions. I am happy to help with these topics.
In fact, I worked with people in 12-Step programs for many years. From that experience, I learned that YOU have to be TRULY READY to stop the old patterns and begin recovering, or it will be a waste of time for you and for me. I will not provide Life Coaching services just to take your money. In fact, if you want to quit smoking, I’ll refer you to a colleague who specializes in that area. I want you to SUCCEED and to be the best you can be. Let’s do it together!
Change Your Life ~ Sleeplessness/Insomnia
What if you are a person who cannot get to sleep or stay asleep? I have some tips, tricks, and remedies for that, too! In 2021, I plan to offer a new service that is enormously beneficial in enabling people to relax, to sleep, and to release both emotional and physical pain that interfere with sleep. (I have to wait to receive the equipment before I tell you more.)
Meanwhile, here is a link to my web page for my highly successful Sleep Like A Baby meditation.
Here is a link to my Sleep Like A Baby Facebook page, where I put occasional tips to help you sleep. But, there’s much more in my Change Your Life coaching toolkit. Let’s talk about it!
See also My Get Well Guru Facebook page where I post lots of tips and information about health and wellness topics. Sometimes, your health habits are related to your sleep patterns.
Change Your Life ~ Spiritual Pursuits
Maybe you want to Change Your Life for the better by learning how to meditate or to learn about natural healing topics. I teach all of those things.
In fact, I have extensive offerings, so check out this link on my website. You also may contact me to tell me what your interests are.
I teach classes to groups or individuals, and some offerings are available on-line.
You also can follow my Nancy Knows Facebook page for spiritual and philosophical thoughts, memes, and posts. I expect to develop more videos for YouTube and other media soon and may leave them under Nancy Knows or create new pages for Change Your Life, life coaching. I haven’t decided yet.
Change Your Life ~ Get Unstuck
Are You A Writer Who Is “Stuck?”
Have you become stuck on feeling someone has wronged you?
Do you feel as if you are Stuck in a Pattern of Holding Onto Grief?
Let’s Get you unstuck and moving forward!
As a Life Coach, I have some tips and tricks to assist you in getting “unstuck” even if all you want to do is to give expression to your feelings in a private way by journaling.
Let’s Change Your Life!
Change Your Life ~ Life Coaching Prices and Price Reduction Packages
Let’s explore what we can do together! Change does not happen overnight. It typically takes 3 months for new habits to replace old habits. Only consistent work plus slow and steady change is likely to last. Therefore, I typically offer a complimentary 30-minute session to explore whether it is a good fit for us to work together.
After the FREE Initial Consultation…
The first session is an “Intake” meeting. In that session, we shall learn more about you and what you want to prioritize as your goal. Below are the options are for individually scheduled hourly sessions and for “packages.”
When you purchase packages, you commit to a specific number of agreed-upon sessions at a price lower than my hourly rate.
Below are examples. Also, please go to the sub-menus of this page. They describe coaching ethics, agreements, and things you need to know about working with a life coach including a sample contract.
Individual Coaching Sessions
Note: because of the pandemic, I am offering greatly reduced prices of $60/hour and $30 for half-hour sessions through the end of April, 2021.
So, NOW is the time to give yourself or a loved one the gift of a coaching or counseling session or package of sessions!
Now, here are the normal rates for comparison.
$150 for one-hour sessions
$75 for 1/2 hour sessions.
