About Me and My Approach to Life Coaching

Y

 

ou may be wondering, “Can I trust Lynda to support me in reaching my goals? Will my life change for the better?” The answer to both is, “Yes!”

I have been where you are now. I have had challenges too. I know what it’s like to work in high-pressure law firms and private schools, and to suffer burnout. I have experienced a serious health crisis that required a great deal of resourcefulness and creativity to overcome. I did this while living in a new province, with no family for support, and two young children who depended on me. My education and career goals came to an abrupt halt because of my illness, and I had no idea how to change what I was experiencing.

With help, I learned how to regain my health and develop the skills of resilience. I learned how to take charge of my own life and be my own best friend. Just as other people do, I experienced a great deal of doubt and uncertainty.

And I did it anyway!

I realized along the way that my life’s purpose is to serve others by understanding what holds them back, why they tolerate what doesn’t work, and what it actually takes to make changes. In short, I have an insatiable curiosity about how and why we do what we do, and how to get more of what we want from this life.

My approach to coaching is collaborative, client-centered, and holistic. Working with me, you will gain new perspectives and uncover what holds you back. Together we will create a plan of action for change. Taking a “big picture” view of life helps us identify barriers to success; in my life and the lives of my clients, I have seen these barriers transform themselves, becoming the doorways we pass through to reach our best outcomes.

Let me share some recent comments from a client:

This is not like any coaching I’ve experienced before. For the first time ever, I know I’m accountable to MYSELF, rather than my coach or someone else. I’m excited and ready to ‘fly’ on my own. Thank you, Lynda, for a truly life-changing gift.”

Wow. With your professional approach, it was so easy to trust you. You get it. It sounds like a cliché, but you’ve changed my life”.

A bit more about me:

I graduated from McGill University with distinction. As a student in the department of political science, I studied constitutional law, revolution, and human rights issues, all of which remain passionate interests of mine.

I am a certified Coach, member of the International Coach Federation (ICF), and Certified Educational Kinesiologist. My coaching career began at Concordia and has continued with training from coaches in both the US and Canada. Concepts from Immunity to Change (Harvard) and Tara Brach’s work linking eastern spiritual practices and western psychology are integral to my practice.

I’m intuitive and analytical. I’m also authentic, loving and committed. Most importantly for you, I feel that life coaching is my calling.
