Life Coaching Options

One-on-One or in Groups, The Equine Gestalt Coaching Method®,

is available for those in my local area or for those who wish to travel to work with me.The sessions are at a local horse boarding facility that offers privacy for Coaching. If you prefer the coaching experience in person without the partnership of horses, that option is available as well.

Phone coaching is great for anyone and is often paired with the equine experience.

We can meet over the phone, Skype, or Zoom. One of the many benefits to phone coaching is that you do not have to be local to Vancouver or Portland to take advantage of the best life coaching!

Whichever Coaching option fits you best, know that together we will design a course of action that works and supports you in your achievements. I will be the listener and the cheering section while providing the encouragement and guidance needed for you to achieve the victories, wins, triumphs, and “aha” moments where understanding and doing come together.

Life Coaching – What is it?

Life Coaching – What is it?

Life coaching is a profession that helps people figure out the “why” and “how.” Coaches help their clients explore their limiting beliefs, set goals, take action on goals, believe in themselves, organize their thoughts and actions, and so much more.

The goal is to aid the client to achieve results; results that are long-lasting and work.

Why you should consider hiring a life coach?

  • You are seeking change.
  • You struggle to meet your goals.
  • You aren’t sure of what your purpose in life is.
  • You have job dissatisfaction.
  • You’ve tried traditional therapy and didn’t find it helpful.
  • You want to lose weight for the millionth time and can’t seem to do it alone.

There are more reasons than not to hire a life coach. The above is only a short list of reasons. Coaching is available for many niches; business, weight loss, life transitions, work-life balance, health, and you name it. It’s all over the map with the niches available to clients.

What’s the difference between a Life Coach and a Therapist?

A Life Coach can provide many options and benefits to their clients; however, their scope of practice isn’t in treating mental health conditions. Many clients will work with both to gain the benefits of each style of practice.

Women’s Group Coaching

This Meetup is for women who are looking to create a new beginning for themselves. It is an opportunity to join with other women to seek clarity, self-discovery, receive emotional support, and to find healing on many levels. The only thing you need to bring is YOU and your willingness – to be honest, and open with yourself and others.

The group meets in an arena. You will meet my horse Cody, other horses, and myself. There is a meeting room at the barn as well, and sometimes the indoor space is utilized for specific topics.

Important Notes –

  • There is no horse experience required, as you will not be riding a horse.
  • If you are fearful of horses, you can remain on the other side of fencing and still participate.
  • This meeting is a sacred space. It is meant to be a safe place where you can share and be heard knowing that what you say is not open for others to discuss.
  • Bring water, a snack, and a journal if you wish.
  • Wear layers, as we will be in a covered outdoor arena.
  • Closed toed shoes are required – no matter what the weather.
  • Show up and hear what the horses have to say and be open to the experience.

Private women’s groups are also available upon request. Contact me at vonie@atailofnewbeginnings.com for more information.

Why Chose Phone Coaching

Coaching, whether in person or over the phone, is a focus-based process, so why choose phone coaching?

  • Phone coaching sessions can be through video chat via Zoom, FaceTime, or Skype.
  • Convenience and immediate access to support – no commute.
  • Our sessions are portable. No matter where you are in the country, our connection can happen.
  • You can relax in your own space while being coached.
  • There is no commuting to and from the coaching session.
  • Flexibility in time and day.

Phone coaching offers a lower price point than in-person coaching sessions making this option more financially accessible.

If you’ve experienced an Equine-Assisted coaching session, you’ll have an opportunity to continue the immersive work you began. Video coaching is an option, as well.

How Phone Coaching Can Support You

How we communicate with ourselves, whether through our thoughts or our spoken words, formulates and supports our beliefs about ourselves. If those beliefs are not in our best interest, a coach can help you to recognize the underlying messages and work towards creating a healthier voice.

Communication is everything, and without it, we don’t feel heard, let alone supported.

If you are stuck in your life and seek transformation, a coach can help you get a plan and execute that plan-making transformation achievable.

Coaching is a partnership! That partnership helps us to get solution-focused. Coaching supports and assists you in the facilitation of change. The coaching/client partnership holds the client accountable, all of which creates a stronger foundation.

Ease of Access – In addition to voice calling or video chat, phone coaching allows you access through text and email.

The results – better decisions, open to new thoughts and ideas, curiosity, healing relationships, mindful communication with yourself and others. Confidence, clarity, and motivation for life’s goals. Create lasting change.
