Most coaches differentiate themselves from therapists because they are not qualified to address mental health issues.  Coaching, like solution-oriented therapy, explores issues of dissatisfaction, probes mental functioning for inconsistencies and outdated programming, and strives to regulate emotional responses.  The benefit of working with a professional who has a background in both means that your coach will recognize when issues concerning motivation or confidence may involve more than strategy.  A coach with mental health experience, like Tami, can provide services seamlessly that span the breadth of coaching to mental health. 

While your coach's credentials and skill are important, good rapport is as much a key to the success of a good coaching. The coaching relationship is involved and personal.  You want a coach who understands the way you think and your communication style. You also want to feel comfortable enough to share your goals, fears, and perceived liabilities; after all, it is likely that the latter two are your challenge. Someone who is trained in identifying and resolving problems from the perspective of both a coach and therapist can be the best of both worlds.

Coaching sessions are task-focused and involve concrete action plans that are designed to help you meet your specific goal. Coaching conversations are directive and structured around the progress you are making, including your successes and your stumbling blocks.  When necessary, strategies or goals are finessed to better facilitate successful change.  Hypnosis is the perfect tool in coaching, as it easily reveals and explores the unconscious thoughts you have that may be preventing you from improving your performance anywhere in life -- from the putting green to the boardroom to the bedroom.

Change your mind and change your performance with a coach trained in cutting edge brain techniques and performance psychology.

Critical concepts to the success of goal accomplishment are:

self-awareness, consistent and clear expectations, accountability to yourself, collaboration of your efforts, appreciation of the process, and a strong sustainability plan.

Endeavors, like your career, your golf game, your PR for the latest marathon or triathlon, the novel you are writing, the solo painting exhibition you are preparing for, managing your financial goals, taking your band on tour, or improving your performance as a parent or partner, are complex and involve thoughtful strategies. Professional guidance, directives, and support can provide what was previously the missing piece to reaching these goals.  

Sometimes, it can be difficult to identify your own strengths or liabilities in performance issues.  As a performance coach, Tami can assist you in developing a solid strategic plan and provide guidance through the process of reaching your goal.  High-level executives, Mr. and Mrs. moms, and individuals striving for their personal best records all benefit from good prioritization and time management of their workflow to provide greater opportunities for utilization of practices that allow them to reach their greater goals.  Previously, without a performance coach, you may have found that you never had the opportunity or time to implement the thing you want most to do.  It may always fall to the bottom of your list.  Tami can help you find the time for what is important to you.

No matter the context of coaching -- motivational, life, love, health, sports, or career -- it is all about performance.  Performance coaching that considers the integration of your whole life is critical to enjoying the success you create.  Your work, relationships, health, spirituality, money, family, and community are all facets of who you are.   Often, changes in one dimension of life may mean changes in other aspects.  Tami will help your goals be congruent to your whole life.
