Personal Coaching

Personal coaching is a collaborative partnership devoted to exploring beliefs, values, vision, and behaviors needed to prevail in adversity. Coaching provides the structure to give real time one-on-one instruction in grief reconciliation, interpersonal problem solving, organizational analysis, communication skills, and using personal inventory skills that shift the focus from weaknesses to strengths. Coaching may be done in person or by telephone. Fees vary according to circumstances.
