MY LIFE IS CRAZY BUSY. WHAT IF I DON’T HAVE TIME TO COMPLETE THE PERSONAL FLOURISH WORK WE’VE DISCUSSED?
It is not therapy. If you don’t feel you are mentally well, please find a good therapist in your area. Life coaching is for individuals who are well enough to take action. In my definition of life coaching, although stories/experiences from the past are important, and will inevitably come up in our sessions, this is not our focus. Our focus will be your thoughts about those stories/experiences and how those thoughts influence your actions today. As a brief example, if you share with me the crappy things your ex-husband said to you 15 years ago, we will examine why you believe they are true, who you would be without those old beliefs running through your head, and what you want to choose to believe about yourself moving forward.
Well, Sister. How do you feel so far? Are we vibing? You’re ready to work with me if you are sick and tired of the same old nonsense running through your head. You’re ready to work with me if you’re open to getting God on your Weight Loss Squad. You’re ready to work with me if you’re willing to dig deep and do the work I assign between sessions. I’m not the coach for you if you’re looking for a certain diet, a juice detox, or to lose 10 pounds by Monday. Sorry, I don’t do diets and I can’t help you there. I am the coach for you if you are ready to have some fun, and have a good laugh about the nonsense you’ve believed so far. Try me out. You can book a free call here.
Although I can guarantee that you haven’t tried what I have to offer before, I think it is insane to guarantee someone weight-loss results. I can support you, but my intention is not to control you. My intention is for you to control your thoughts so you can control your actions, and thus control your results. In my experience, yes women do lose weight when they work with me. If you want to be model thin, I am not your gal. You will find pictures of me all over this website. I am not model thin, I do not strive to be. I am at a comfortable weight that feels natural for my stage in life. I am 43 and don’t expect to have the body I did when I was 16. Be sure your expectations of yourself are realistic. We can work through that. If you want to work gradually towards a weight that is natural and healthy for your stage in life and your body type, I can help you.
Although religious beliefs are highly personal, this is often something individuals want to know about me before entering into a coaching contract. I am a Christian. I do devotions, attend church, I spend time in prayer for my client, I’m doing my best to raise up our children. I respect all faiths and all belief systems and have experience working with women of many religious backgrounds. My beliefs heavily influence how I coach. Not only do I pray for my clients, I pray with my clients. I believe in the Holy Spirit. I believe I am guided. I have my clients memorize verses from the Bible that I know will help renew their mind. So, in short – my strong, Christian born-again beliefs influence every aspect of my coaching.
I schedule a mid-week check in email for you, and encourage my clients to ask me their questions at this time. If you have a quick question, I do answer them between sessions and will get back to you within 24 hours, Monday-Friday. I do not answer emails on the weekend, I am spending time with my husband, our kids and our wiener dog. I work smart during the week. I relax and recharge on the weekends. I encourage you to do the same.
A million times, YES! This was so hard for me when I was being coached. I’d have a great call and then start sinking and have to wait until my next call to get brought back up. I use a free app wherein my clients have access to me Monday-Saturday. It’s like walkie-talkie access to your life coach, and my clients love it!
I have yet to meet a woman who says, “You know what, Crystal? I’m just really not that busy. I don’t know how to spend my copious amounts of free time.” Everyone is busy. You don’t do the work, you are the one missing out. We will still proceed with the scheduled coaching call, but you may not get out of it what I intend for you. Busyness is simply an excuse. You have 30-60 minutes each week to take some time and space for yourself. If this is a concern for you, let me know up front, we can address this very quickly and very easily on our first call. Trust me, I will help you find the time. You have it.
This is not an issue. I work with clients over the phone, from the comfort of their own homes. We schedule a time that works best for you.
Yes. If you want to join me in Winnipeg, I will create a retreat for you and up to 3 friends. You can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org to begin the conversation. It will be over-the-top awesome and is more cost effective to do it with a couple gals.
My goal is always to equip women with the tools they need to continue their work well after our sessions have come to an end. That being said, I will always accommodate more sessions for those who feel they need more. We will work through this on an individual basis.
My time is valuable, and so is yours. I do allow for changed appointments 24 hours before the session is to take place. If you are not available for our scheduled call, you will not receive a refund for that call, I will not rebook that session. I understand that sometimes we have emergencies that are beyond our control. I will review these situations case by case. You know when you are having a legit emergency and when you’re excusing your way out of not showing up to do the work. So do I.
Sister, I have a strict No Refund Policy. You committed to investing in yourself, so I will hold you to that. You can’t drop out of your commitment by requesting a refund. You dig in, you do the work. You signed up to Flourish Into You, not Dwindle Into The Same Old Crappy Patterns, Enough said. You get it. I know you do.
