Where will your next steps take you? Coaching for moving forward in life & work. For being who you are meant to be.
Coaching helps you: identify your dreams, goals and steps to get there. Find the barriers in your thinking and life that hold you back and create successful strategies to overcome them. Move forward. Be authentic. Have what means the most to you. Have the support you need to actually do it.
Not exactly sure what your next step is? Too confused or unsatisfied with where you are at to see clearly? Coaching helps you get clarity, align with your goals, and move forward. Be who you were created to be. Impact the world around you. Because you are unencumbered by limiting thoughts, and you have an achievable, ambitious plan that works with who you are and where you're at- and support to keep you on track. How many more years are you going to let slide by, wondering what if you had actually given it a shot? How much money do you want to keep throwing away on half-hearted attempts or gimmicks?
How coaching works
Much like a sport or music coach, a life coach is there to help you identify your priorities, goals and steps to get there. Your coach helps keep you accountable and on track, which means that you have the support to move forward successfully.
Coaching helps you cut through the mental clutter distracting you and holding you back, which makes your path easier. It's like getting rocks and bumps out of your way.
Frequent reasons for engaging a coach:
- You want more from life: purpose, authenticity, clarify your vision or next steps - Career or vocational situation change or desire to move forward - Health and fitness: weight loss, fitness, sense of wellbeing, sport or recreational goals More About Wellbeing Coaching - Finding balance that works better for your life and those around you - Finding authenticity or aligning important goals & dreams with your core or spiritual values About Faith-Based Coaching Option
A coach is not a psychotherapist. Therapy goes into your past and wounds. A life coach helps you navigate from where you are to where you want to go, but will leave therapy to the trained professionals. A life coach is like a friend..but one who has the mandate to hold you accountable by pushing yourself out of comfort zones while supporting you to be successful.
Life coaching does not have to be in person. You can access coaching by Skype or Phone. This means that you can easily fit coaching into your schedule and life. With mobile devices you can even enjoy the great outdoors or other favourite location while you are coaching.
Typical situations where coaching helps:
Weight loss Better fitness Reach sport goals Achieve personal dreams Balance your relationships & goals Be healthier & happier with your self
Identify career next steps Perform better at work Change career Move up from meaningless...to meaningful Achieve wellbeing (balance with your values, relationships, worklife, health, self) Self-development/personal achievement Resilience in life change such as divorce, move empty nest, job loss.

About Coach Heather
A Little About my Experience and Education: I have been a business and non profit management professional with national responsibility, entrepreneur and sport coach. I've been an international corporate sales trainer, directed national sport program change, driven business & program growth, pulled stakeholder teams together across the country, written and influenced policy, improved business processes, increased funding. I've worked in three of Canada's major cities, and started a small business in a small town. I've been a competitive athlete and a conditioning trainer for Olympic and world athletes. I'm an international public speaker and author. I've been coaching people for over 10 years, with years of corporate performance coaching and training before that. I completed my doctorate in psycho-social development and resilience through sport and recreation in nature. The Path is Rarely Straightforward: It hasn't always been a steady uphill path. I've been through downsizing, company reorganizations and needing to re-adapt and re-direct my career entirely several times. I've also been through some tough personal times and know what it's like to overcome adversity, take on challenges bigger than you are and succeed through planning and teamwork, in the workplace and in the health and sport. I know what it's like to feel like you are standing at a crossroads, or the edge of the next step up. I've been able to negotiate the changes and challenges, keep learning, growing and being productive in my work and personal life, doing work that has meaning and makes a difference. A better life is not just for those amazing people out there: it's for you.
The experiences mean I have the street-cred to understand because I have been there. The training means that I have the knowledge behind me to help you. Like you, I am always growing and learning forward. I am passionate about helping people be healthier, meaningfully productive, dream big and move forward.
Packages for Life & Wellbeing Coaching
Packages include weekly or biweekly personal contact (in person, or by Skype or phone for 30-60 minutes depending on the arrangement) and email/online support.
Success is strongly related to accountability and a clear plan, so regular contact is important.
A minimum initial one month package is recommended since it takes 21 days to form new habits. For more significant transformation and progress, 3-6 months is recommended.
Contact Heather to discuss your dream or the crossroads you are at, so you can decide whether coaching with Heather is right for you.
You can engage in coaching creatively: in person in a coffee shop or out for some exercise and fresh air with Heather (eco-coaching kills two birds with one stone- health and fitness, and life/career transformation!), or bring Heather right to your home or other location through your computer/phone/portable device.
