I Don’t Judge You
Guiding You To Your Inner Wisdom
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, I am asked to be a sounding board for people’s ideas, to give spiritual, relationship, or business guidance, and to critique the work people do before they submit or perform it in public. I can do this in a counseling/advising capacity instead of or in addition to a formal life coaching format.
As a volunteer, I have worked extensively with people suffering from homelessness, addiction, sexual abuse, and major illnesses. I have done this in many environments, including in shelters and prisons. Few things can shock me.
I also have wide-ranging management experience in both the private and public sectors. Clearly, my background and qualifications are unusually varied. What I’ve accomplished can be applied toward 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.
Below is a summary of some of the primary services I offer.
Change Your Life ~ Life Coaching Programs
You can go to Change Your Life, which describes my Life Coaching services in detail, versus this little overview. It has web pages which describe exactly what is required of me and of the client, a Code of Ethics, and a sample contract.
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 which 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 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. I have many tools we can use to understand and to heal the emotional self that influences your daily 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) (probably combined with Hypnotherapy)
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 which 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.
Getting Started Together ~ 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 i in strict confidence.
So, let’s see if we can bring balance back to your body/mind/spirit and LIFE! Contact me at 540-636-4311 (Eastern USA time) or at GetWellStayWell@Outlook.com for more information or to schedule a session.
