Ten Signs

Your Inner Critic Plays

a Significant Role

in Your Life:

  • You’re embarrassed by compliments.
  • You downplay personal triumphs when others praise or minimize them.
  • You’re easily overwhelmed by new challenges and talk yourself out of attempting new goals.
  • You beat yourself up long after receiving criticism.
  • You reflexively apologize when no apology is necessary.
  • You obsess about what you could have done differently when things don’t go as planned.
  • Emotional eating is your go-to response to stress.
  • You overindulge in alcohol, drugs, social media, video streaming, etc.
  • Achieving a goal is waaaaaaay more difficult than it should be.
  • Personal fulfillment remains elusive.

Counseling vs. Coaching?

“What’s the difference between Counseling and Coaching?”

The general consensus is that Counseling is designed to help clients resolve problems that prevent them from achieving a healthy emotional state. Coaching has been defined as a way to help individuals build on current successes to climb even higher mountains.

This all sounds good on paper but in practical terms, the professions invariably overlap. All of our lives exist on a continuum. The patterns we developed in the past inevitably help or hinder our efforts to move forward in more productive ways. The lines between Counseling and Coaching are often blurred. Future success depends on addressing unhelpful patterns regardless of their point of origin and replacing them with more productive ones.

There are a good number of coaches and many licensed counselors. Very few have the combined expertise of both professions. I do. I’m an IPEC Certified Coach and a Licensed Professional Counselor. I draw on the expertise of both professions to support my clients in their pursuit of success—as they define it.

Make this the day you leave excuses behind. We’ll collaborate to overcome the hurdles that stand between you and your most important goals.
