Susan Cook - coaching to connection

“Coaching” has become a popular catch phrase that has layered meanings and contexts. It ranges from athletic to business to personal coaching. Much has been written about the differences and similarities between coaching and counseling.

Helping clients to not only think inside, but also “outside of their boxes” while accessing their own resources to meet their needs is a primary aspect of the coaching process. This often frees them up to act, decide, and resolve something they want.

 

Why Coaching to Connection?  We chose this name because con*nection stands for developing and deepening one’s self-awareness to bring more clarity, ease, and purpose to life. This is what we mean by “empowerment”. This process connects mind, emotions, body, and spirit to self and the world outside.

Women are often the “over givers and self forgetters”. As coaches, we offer women experiences for remembering their own needs, finding their voices and true identities. We acknowledge and touch upon the emotional resistances that can prevent them from taking action on their own behalf. 

With our work, women find the wherewithal to act and sustain change in their lives. We use non-traditional and customized coaching exercises to serve our clients. We are fun, provocative, and compassionate- we believe in every women’s capacity to rise and thrive! 

Group Workshops
The value of people coming to a group workshop is that it provides a safe place to be seen, heard, witnessed and supported to explore, discover, and enjoy the company of kindred spirits going through a similar process and experience. It is a very powerful human bonding experience, and the sharing and reflecting with others provides its own type of transformative experience for each person and for the group as a whole.
Personal coaching

People seek individual coaching because they have a specific idea to clarify or empower, or an obstacle to overcome in order to meet a certain need or goal. Individual coaching sessions may serve as a follow-up from a group workshop because specific needs and goals emerge from the workshop experience.
