CHARISMATA COACHING for Abundant Life is a relationship-based process of self-discovery and change that focuses on spiritual growth and personal development from a Catholic perspective.
Spiritual Mentoring is NOT psychotherapy or spiritual direction but it can produce beneficial healing effects and be theraputic in nature. Mentoring is action oriented and future focused to generate positive, faith-filled, Holy-Spirit driven solutions in your life.
~ An ally in the Holy Spirit-driven process of transformation that is on-going in your life.
~A spiritual encourager and exhorter as you grow in faith, hope and loving trust in your relationship with God.
~A truth teller and conduit of God's Word and wisdom in your life.
~A sacred listener and supportive companion
offering hope, affirmation, information and inspiration within the context of a life-giving mentoring relationship.
Anyone who wants to grow in self-knowledge and relationship with the Divine Persons of the Holy Trinity while learning more about the Catholic faith in the process.
Coaching centers around the setting and achievement of personal/interior goals such as:
~ increasing intimacy with God ~ discovering your purpose ~ overcoming a crisis
in faith ~ growing in spiritual maturity ~ expressing your gifts and charisms ~
finding balance ~ embracing self-acceptance ~ navigating life transitions, ~
coping with chronic or catastrophic illness and more...
Engaging in the spiritual life coaching process is a rewarding way to discover your spiritual potential and purpose and deepen your relationship with yourself and your God.
By phone or in person, each coaching session lasts 45-50 minutes with topics for discussion chosen mostly by the person being coached. Through conversation and sacred listening, the coach helps to develop action steps to reach goals and assign tasks as indicated. Intermittent email contacts can also be provided... especially for additional encouragement and to celebrate breakthroughs and successes.
An initial free 30 minute consultation is provided to see if coaching is what you are looking for. If it is, then an intial interview questionnaire and contract will be completed and sessions will begin!
Coaching contracts run on a month-to-month basis with the number of sessions per month to be determined by you. An hourly rate will be negotiated prior to the beginning of service and all payments must be received prior to service.
Coaching clients also receive a free copy of my book.

As a Life Coach, I do not provide counseling or therapy but act as a mentor/coach as you seek to deepen your spiritual understanding and reach your full potential in the body of Christ. All spiritual coaching and information is provided in accordance with and in obedience to the Sacred teachings and Traditions of the Roman Catholic Church.
Spiritual coaching DOES NOT REPLACE THE NEED FOR THERAPUTIC INTERVENTION!! If you have a significant, on-going emotional/mental health issue, consult your psychiartist, therapist, psychologist or priest before you pursue spiritual coaching through CHARISMATA.
