Personal Growth & Development

There’s no getting around it. Increasing your level of your happiness and enhancing the quality of your life is an inside job. Absolutely everything rests on YOU. I believe that you have the power to radically up your game both personally and professionally so long as you’re willing to start within. Here are 3 opportunities for self-discovery and growth:

Private Coaching

 

It’s not that you’re miserable. You’re just restless and tired of feeling stuck, unclear, unmotivated, dissatisfied, lost, trapped, anxious, restless or unsure. You know that something’s missing and there has to be more to your life. Deep down, you realize you’re not stepping into your potential. YET.

Working with a Life Coach is a game-changer. With Katy’s gentle, yet firm approach, you’ll find yourself supported and challenged to step into your best self. To pursue your dreams means a whole lot of courage, perseverance, and a non-wavering commitment to crank up the volume of your life! And let me be clear: coaching is not to ‘fix’ you; coaching is to enhance the real you so your life has meaning, purpose and fulfillment.

No longer a stranger to yourself, you’ll find the answers you had no idea you possessed all along. With objectivity, accountability, support and tools, Katy will give you the opportunity for exponential growth and transformation in all aspects of your life!

With an increasingly full schedule, Katy takes on a limited number of private clients at any given time. Discover more about Coaching below and set up your free discovery session with Katy to see if this is the right move for you!

What is Life Coaching?

The International Coach Federation defines life coaching as “partnering with clients in a thought-provoking and creative process that inspires them to maximize their personal and professional potential.”

I can offer you all kinds of textbook definitions but instead, let me give you an analogy.

Let’s say it’s your mission to become a Nephrologist. Say what? Yes, a Nephrologist. Don’t worry, until 5 minutes ago, I didn’t know what that was either. A Nephrologist is a kidney disease specialist. To achieve your goal, you might seek the help of the following professionals:

Counsellor: When asked why you’ve chosen to become a Nephrologist, you get very emotional. Your father died only a year ago from polycystic kidney disease. You’re still reeling from his death and if that’s not enough, you’ve also discovered that you inherited the genetic marker for the disease. Before you can move forward, you need to address underlying issues of grief and fear. The emotional wounds need attention and healing before you can move ahead.

Mentor: It may be helpful to seek out the wisdom of someone who has the experience you’re after. By finding a student already in training, for instance, you might learn what kind of time commitment is required and the pros and cons of studying for this particular career. A mentor can provide support from actual experience and help you navigate your path with greater insight.

Consultant: Someone who has expertise in this field would be invaluable in your search. By connecting with a practicing Nephrologist, you can further investigate the field and determine if this is the right choice for you.

Life Coach: Let me make it very clear that I do not possess any kind of knowledge about nephrology. But that’s exactly the point. My role is to support you as my client; the subject matter is irrelevant. Unlike other professionals, the Coach is not considered the expert. You are. My role is to motivate you, ask insightful questions, hold you accountable and give you objective support to help you find your way!

 

Are you Coachable?

To benefit from the Coaching process, you need to be able to say yes to the following questions:

1.

Are you willing to do the work?
Coaching is an action-based process. Words will get us nowhere and action is essential! If you’re willing to put in the time, energy, money and honest effort to live a better life, you’re in the right place.

2.

Can you be humble and open?
In order to create change that lasts, we must recognize that we can’t do it on our own. The input and objectivity of a Coach needs to be received from the heart and not just the mind. Be ready to change your outlook and to embrace new perspectives.

3.

Are you willing to surrender control?
The most fundamental growth we can ever encounter within ourselves happens when we are willing to let go and embrace what’s possible. By insisting on controlling every outcome, we paralyze ourselves and lose out on opportunities for bigger and better things. Can you let go?

4.

Are you ready to take full ownership?
Coaching is a positive process of rapid growth and development. What it’s not is a means of chronic complaining and blaming. While some venting might be helpful, clients don’t benefit from focusing on things out of their control. The real growth happens when we take full responsibility for all of our choices and choose to be empowered moving forward.

5.

Are you prepared to be real?
Coaching only works for those who are ready to show up authentically and 100% as they are. Pretense will get us nowhere. This means being brutally honest with ourselves and one another. Until we can tackle the truth head-on, we’re not going to make progress. Show up. And equally important, be you!

 

M.A.S.T. Group Coaching

 

Katy’s MAST Coaching Program

Creating a safe harbour for big goals, new connections and a better you.

Get off the train to nowhere and change the course of your life! Wake up to who you really are, what you’re capable of and start living with intention! Your life has a time limit and the clock is ticking…

If you find yourself held back by overwhelm, stress, fear, lack of knowledge, old habits, comfort, feeling inadequate, and a never-ending supply of distractions, let me help! All of these contribute to one thing we can ALL relate to: SELF-SABOTAGE!

Here’s where the magic can happen:

Imagine having a team of supporters who are like-minded and share similar challenges as you and want to see you succeed! Imagine having Motivation, Accountability, Support and Tools to finally overcome the things that hold you back!

Katy’s MAST Coaching program was designed with two things in mind:

  1. To provide a safe space for you to explore your challenges and goals, free from judgment and surrounded by like-minded people; and
  2. To provide you with motivation, accountability, support and tools to set sail and actually accomplish what you set out to do.

We can talk about our desires and dreams until the cows come home. We can even implement some steps to create change. But what’s going to make them stick?

Are you ready? Join MAST and finally build the life you crave! It doesn’t matter what your scenario is. What matters is that you feel you’re moving forward and achieving what you want with the collaboration and support of your MAST team! It’s powerful and it works. Here’s what you’ll walk away with:

  • Increased confidence and courage
  • Clarity and purpose
  • Consistency in your life
  • Newfound habits and perceptions
  • Renewed zest for your life
  • Passion and drive
  • Strategies for success
  • Stronger self-awareness

This innovative 10-Session program was designed to create ACTION and RESULTS! By committing to a total of 10 sessions at 2 hours each over a period of 3 months, you will change your life!

IMAGINE creating a better, stronger and more confident YOU! The benefits to you, your family, friends and colleagues are immeasurable. A stronger and happier you translates into a life that’s built on who you most authentically are.

Are you the right fit?

Group coaching is not for everyone. Here’s a little checklist for you – if you can answer these questions with a definite “yes”, then carry on… (otherwise, let’s have a separate conversation):

  • Do you interact well in small groups of 6 people? If this creates overwhelming anxiety, this won’t be of service to you. You might be better to consider private one-on-one coaching.
  • Are you prepared to step outside of your comfort zone and challenge your own limitations? You’ll need to be real and honest about who you are and embrace vulnerability with others who are willing to do the same.
  • Are trust and integrity important to you? Confidentiality within the group is essential for its success!
  • Are you compassionate and understanding towards others? Those in the group will benefit from your support as much as you benefit from theirs.
  • Are you prepared to make real changes in your life? The group is there to support you and hold you accountable but true commitment must come from within you and only you!

Note: These sessions are not for gossip, regular chit-chat or meaningless discussion. Sessions are designed to accelerate you and other members by identifying challenges and successes, creating action items and providing a level of accountability that will help you get things done. All this includes hands-on coaching to generate positive learning, growth and change. And the best part of all? The connections formed in this group will continue to sustain you well beyond the end of the program.

What you get

  • Three months of hands-on coaching, support and accountability
  • Support and solutions with the help of proactive, resourceful and objective people
