Life Coaching

Coaching is for you–the professional person with a progressive life!

What is Life Coaching?

“Life coaching is a powerful human relationship where trained coaches assist people to design the future rather than get over their past . Through a typically long-term relationship, coaches aid clients in creating visions and goals for all aspects of their lives and creating multiple strategies to support achieving those goals. Coaches recognize the brilliance of each client and their personal power to discover their own solutions when provided with support, accountability and unconditional positive regard.” ~~ Therapist As Life Coach by Patrick Williams, Ed.D. and Deborah Davis, Ed.D.

“Professional Coaching is an ongoing partnership that helps clients produce fulfilling results in their personal and professional lives.. . The client chooses the focus of conversation, while the coach listens and contributes observations and questions. This interaction creates clarity and moves the client’s progress by providing greater focus and awareness of choice. Coaching concentrates on where clients are today and what they are willing to do to get where they want to be tomorrow. ” ~~ The International Coach Federation

” Coaching starts with today and works into tomorrow.” We don’t do deep analyzing with coaching. It is much easier and less painful than therapy. .” ~~Laurel Sills, Psy.D.

Why hire Laurel Sills, Psy.D?

“I am a compassionate, upbeat, down-to-earth, straight-shooting, supportive active listener. Repeatedly, I am told how easy I am to talk to about even the most difficult subjects. What you say stays confidential. I will coach you like a good parent should …giving you encouragement, support and an optimistic perspective! I will listen attentively to your needs, and help you live a more purposeful, fulfilling, and progressive life. I will help you pursue solutions from “outside the box.” You will be rewarded for investing in yourself to improve your life. Finally, you will be glad to have me behind you to give you the nudges you need…also known as a friendly kick in the butt!” ~~Laurel Sills

Did you know that anybody can be a coach as credentials are not required? Do you want just anybody to coach you?

“As a Doctoral Degreed Clinical Psychologist since l987, I am highly adept at listening non-judgmentally, empowering people, providing support and encouragement, keeping professional boundaries, respecting people’s courage to change, and understanding the struggle to develop healthier behaviors. I regularly identify people’s strengths and take the shame out of making mistakes. I teach people to laugh at themselves. Finally, I have the honor of participating in the transformation of hundreds of lives.”  

“I coach people all the time as part of therapy on a daily basis. Coaching is a subset of what I already do and have done for many years. Aside from having credentials from well-known programs accredited by the American Psychological Association, I have earned the trust of many professionals who ask me to care for people with all kinds of problems. Once the root of the problems are addressed and worked through, the easy part of therapy continues as ongoing coaching.”
