“Life Coach­ing?” So, what is life coach­ing?

Public News (Houston) - - NEWS -

This is the ques­tion I get asked the most of­ten. What do we ac­tu­ally do? How can we help, and what is the process?

First, let me in­tro­duce my­self. My name is Deb­bie Warren, I am the founder of “Own Your Great­ness” Life Coach­ing. I hold my cer­ti­fi­ca­tion of completion in Life Coach­ing, as well as Anx­i­ety Ther­apy. Fur­ther­more, I have ad­di­tional train­ing in nu­tri­tion, in­ter­per­sonal com­mu­ni­ca­tion, coun­sel­ing and psy­chol­ogy.

I be­lieve in or­der to be at our best, it is im­per­a­tive that we feed and nour­ish the three parts of us that make us a whole per­son. Our phys­i­cal self, our emo­tional self and our spir­i­tual self. When one of th­ese is off, it does in­deed af­fect the oth­ers. For it is a fact, if you have a weak­ened link, then the chain it­self be­comes sus­cep­ti­ble to break­ing.

Life coach­ing is about tak­ing our past ex­pe­ri­ences, both good and bad, and us­ing them to bet­ter our­selves. We do this in or­der to make our­selves more compassionate hu­man be­ings. It can then leave us open to un­der­stand­ing and change. Re­mem­ber, our past does not have to de­fine us, rather we have the power to use it to make us bet­ter, stronger in­di­vid­u­als for our­selves and oth­ers.

It is about teach­ing you to be solely re­spon­si­ble for ac­tions and re­ac­tions. It is also about set­ting goals and reach­ing them. In do­ing so, we must learn how to break down road­blocks, both emo­tional and phys­i­cal that pre­vent us from reach­ing our goals. We need to feed our bod­ies, our minds, as well our spir­i­tu­al­ity in such a way that we as a whole are con­nected and at our health­i­est.

Statis­tics show an alarm­ing num- ber of peo­ple suf­fer from anx­i­ety and de­pres­sion. It is nor­mal to have emo­tional set­backs as sit­u­a­tions oc­cur in ev­ery­day life. Un­for­tu­nately, there are many that suf­fer alone and in si­lence. This is not nec­es­sary, as there are healthy al­ter­na­tives and so­lu­tions. It is im­por­tant for each of us to have a sup­port mech­a­nism in place as we go through th­ese ex­pe­ri­ences or set­backs. This is es­pe­cially true as we may be too over­whelmed to see it our­selves.

I would like to uti­lize this pub­li­ca­tion as an in­for­ma­tional sup­port ex­change and open pub­lic fo­rum, for the read­ers.

If you have top­ics you would like more in­for­ma­tion on or ad­dressed, please feel free to for­ward them. If you are look­ing for some­thing more per­sonal, or one on one, please feel free to reach out as well.

I would like to close with a quick les­son in ‘Re­la­tion­ship Coach­ing.’

1. You can­not fight some­one else’s demons for them. Strength comes to us when we con­quer those fears our­selves. It is then that we can then em­power our­selves.

2. We are re­spon­si­ble for the things we say and do to oth­ers. Not only as an ac­tion, but as a re­ac­tion as well.

Fi­nally, do not blame oth­ers for the choices you make, they are yours to make. Think, ex­am­ine and re­ally look at what you are about to say. How will it af­fect those that will hear it, or even see it.

I chal­lenge ev­ery­one to be gen­tle, kind and un­der­stand­ing of each other. We were cre­ated to love and sup­port each other. Please visit my Face­book page @ own your gr8t­ness. I would love to get feed­back and help in any way I can. Isn’t it time to “Own Your Great­ness”?
