As a coach, Jennifer provides a safe, non-judgmental space for her clients to reflect on and process what is most important to them. In our fast paced busy lives, this time and space is often hard to come by. Using the Duke Wheel of Health she guides her clients in assessing where they are today in 7 key areas of life, and where they want to be. She guides her clients to develop a BIG PICTURE vision for optimal living and wellbeing. This vision and the values it represents are used as a guide in designing action steps and goals around what matters most. Research has shown that people change when change is in alignment with what matters most to them. Jennifer helps her clients to not only identify what’s most important to them, but to overcome the barriers and obstacles that have been getting in the way. A key ingredient of successful change, that Jennifer has identified, is learning to practice self-compassion.
The magic happens in between the coaching sessions. This is where the client experiments with change and gains confidence in themselves. There is trial and error, learning and growth. Most people, when attempting change on their own, give up after the first hiccup. Often times being very critical and judgmental of themselves in the process. Knowing that change is a process that takes place over time, Jennifer guides her clients in learning from “hiccups” and making adjustments that lead to long-term success. Coaching is a partnership. The client provides the content, and drives the agenda. The coach provides the structure, tools, accountability, and encouragement.
