What my Clients say

What did you gain from engaging in a coaching practice?

I did not really know what I wanted to gain from the coaching experience initially. I knew I wanted to live my best life, and evaluate my priorities and put in place strategies to help me keep on track with the goals I would identify as important. I believe the biggest gain was being provided with a platform, sounding board and process to reflect on what I needed. Cheryl pointed the flashlight in every corner of the room of self-reflection. I saw the big picture and then compartmentalized things so I could purge what I did not need and nurture and cherish the things I valued. I have lightened my load considerably and now have more focus and energy to continue my journey to be the best me I can be.

What worked well for you in the approach to coaching we used?

I benefit from checking in. I do not always have the discipline to attend to time for quiet reflection. Coaching was a gentle nudge to focus, condense and articulate a plan of action and sometimes inaction.

What advice would you give to others considering coaching for themselves?

I would recommend coaching to anyone who is open and ready to attend to those elements of life that often get neglected and pushed aside by the multiple demands and challenges that arise in daily living. If you want your life to be a journey or rich experiences, rather than the shortest distance between two points, take the time and invest in yourself. You will not regret your journey and Cheryl is a great guide.

What did you gain from engaging in a coaching practice?

Engaging in a coaching practice allowed me to make more confident decisions in both my personal and professional life. Coaching forced me to reflect and make choices based on what I value and what makes me happy, rather than just going through the motions and accepting all challenges, projects, and requests made of me.

What worked well for you in the approach to coaching we used?

I liked that we started by defining a goal for our coaching sessions. I also liked the reflective practices, especially the one where I was asked to highlight emotions that I experience on a daily basis. Finally, the readings and input I received from Cheryl were extremely relevant and valuable. I appreciate all the time that Cheryl put into preparing for the sessions. Her metaphors and questions helped to clarify items discussed.

What advice would you give to others considering coaching for themselves?

Be prepared to reflect on your life, your choices, and your reactions. Realize that a few sessions of coaching will not necessarily change your life, but it will definitely make sure you are on the right path towards improving yourself and your life.
