CHECK OUT THE VIEW FROM THE MOUNTAIN TOP OF LIFE

Let Life Coaching Expand Your Horizon

what is life coaching?

A life coach works with a person to support them in achieving an even more fulfilling and balanced life.  This is done through creating specific goals and putting the plan in action.  Coaching is a great option for those who are motivated to create change in their lives, and are ready to invest in themselves to get results!  

In this process, you will have the opportunity to explore some of the belief structures and values that are either aiding you in achieving what you want or are keeping you stuck in habits that no longer serve you.  Coaching assists you in getting "a ha" moments or epiphanies and connecting to greater awareness which leads to you obtaining solutions. Change can happen quickly.  It is up to you!  This is where this coach gets really excited!  

I believe that you already have the answers inside yourself.  To guide you to your wisdom, it is my role and honour to ask the right questions, be curious, and creative.  I also use my mind, body, heart, and spirit connection alongside my training to support you in accessing your inner knowing.  Together, if you choose, you will also supplement your tools. I am gaining more knowledge of my doTERRA essential oils tool to support you in engaging your sense of smell and the benefits of essential oils in mood regulation.

Through the coaching process, you get to have someone who is on your side and invested in you thriving.  I will cheer you on, be your accountability partner, and  lovingly hold boundaries with you to assist in the breakthroughs you are seeking.  Part of what allows coaching to be effective, outside of your dedication to create change, is the relationship between coach and coachee.  It is important that we are a good fit and you feel supported and emotionally safe.

About Jessica

 

I AM...

A Powerful, Loving, Responsible, Whole, Worthy Being! With that being said, I am also a Passionate, Connected, Heart Centered, Fun Loving, Curious, Skilled Coach!

What gets me out of bed in the morning is knowing that today I will make choices that impact future me, my community, you, and the world at large.  I declare my choices to be grounded in love and trust.  Does fear sometimes get the best of me?  Sure does.  Like you, I am human, with my own backstory, my own hurdles to jump over, and my own unique place and purpose in this world.  Even though there are moments I slide back into status quo, I then get to remember who I AM, and choose again.  I smile envisioning a world where we all choose our infinite wholeness and manifest from a place of abundant love.  This is the vision I hold while we co-create.  

I entered into the field of therapy, and now coaching, due to my belief in the goodness in people and witnessing the daily struggle of humanity.  I am passionate about co-creating healthy connections in relationship with self, others, the masculine/feminine, and nature.  During the past eight plus years, I have had the privilege of working with individuals, couples, families, and groups in wilderness, school, home, and community settings. 
After spending 10 months in New Zealand in 2012, I knew I was destined to return.  In May 2017, my husband, Travis, and I immigrated to New Zealand from America.  I return with an eagerness to plant my feet, be in contribution, add value to whatever I do,  and nurture the seeds of growth.  My life experiences are consistently teaching me the importance of acknowledging our differences and the commonality of the heart.
Outside of work, I can be found hiking, baking, boogie boarding,  soaking in hot springs and visual journaling.  I love celebrating life through freeform dancing, clapping and enjoying time with friends, family, and my hubby.

CHOOSE TO BE IN YOUR LIFE FLOW

IMG_2104.jpg

You will find that I have a "you" centered approach.  Meaning, I believe that you are the expert on you, and my role is to be the expert in assisting you in knowing what options and choices are available.  You cannot NOT change, for change is the only constant in life.  How we change, is up to us. One of the firsts step to making consciously transforming, is awareness of the stories, patterns and behaviors that are creating your reality.

We only see what we want to see; we only hear what we want to hear. Our belief system is just like a mirror that only shows us what we BELIEVE.” -Don Miguel Ruiz

Thankfully we can change our beliefs and be shown a whole new world! Thanks Aladdin! ;)

OFFERing BOTH INDIVIDUAL AND COUPLE'S COACHING.  

With my unique background in Marriage and Family Therapy, Expressive Arts and Life Coaching, I am able to assist you in further developing healthy communication skills, becoming more aligned in your masculine/feminine energy, deepening your understanding of how you make choices, your current patterns and cycles,  and the underlying beliefs and values that may be hijacking your decisions and behaviors.  Together we get to figure out what best fosters your connection to growth, and your most authentic self. 

I know that we did not get to be who we are overnight.  We have had a lifetime of events and choices that make us who we are today.  And, it is through the decisions of the now, that you get to have a say in who you are tomorrow.

As a certified life coach, I offer in-person sessions to those in New Plymouth and in the surrounding areas. for those using tele-communication, rates remain consistent:

Each session is individualized to maximize your potential and support you in getting the results you want.  With each session, you have the option of a courtesy 15 minute phone call with me between sessions and within reason, texts and email.  Sessions can occur in the outdoors, and even while enjoying a coffee, whatever is most in alignment with your best interest and growth.

Your free introduction session: Is Free/30 minutes  

This is a no-obligation conversation.  It is an opportunity for you to gain clarity, ask questions, share about your desired outcomes, see if we are a good fit, and receive tools to be in action and achieve what you want.   This is where you take your first steps towards making your dreams a reality!

Following Sessions exchange fee:

Exchange: $97 session (individual or couples)

*When you purchase 3 sessions at once you save 10%

If you achieve your desired results prior to using all your prepaid session, you can place them on "hold" to be used within a year's time.

*A sliding scale is available to those seeking supporting and are needing a reduced fee.  


You Have 2 Choices in LIFE:
You can dissolve into the mainstream or you can be distinct.
To be distinct, you must be different.
To be different, you must strive to BE what no one else but YOU can be.

DESPITE HOW FRAGMENTED WE MAY FEEL, OUR PIECES MAKE US WHOLE

DESPITE HOW FRAGMENTED WE MAY FEEL, OUR PIECES MAKE US WHOLE

You find yourself in a place of seeking, how do I know that is right where you need to be?  Because that is where you are.  Sometimes in this life we forget our vision, we become uncertain of our purpose, we are conditioned out of realizing how special we are.  Together, we can work towards you remembering, for I already know you are incredible.   It is your unique brand of incredible that we get to explore!  Ready to BE in action?!  

TESTIMONIALS

 

"I had the privilege of receiving one to one life coaching and support from Jessica in December 2017.  Jessica was able to help me on a number of occasions in learning to drill down into specific problems and issues to get to the heart of the matter.  Through her methods and intuition, I was able to take a different, more supportive perspective on the presenting problems and essentially feel empowered to choose a different action or response.  I have absolute confidence and trust in Jessica’s work and ethics and I feel her professional knowledge and experience ensures your dealings are managed skillfully and safely.  I confidently recommend Jessica to anyone looking for support and direction with life, work, personal or family matters.  I am grateful to have found someone whose guidance I respect."
