My Coaching Style

Joy Mackenzie Life Coaching

I am a guide and facilitator

Have you ever been in a situation where you didn’t feel seen or heard? As a Life Coach I make a space where I see and hear you through compassionate, focused listening as you tell me your story. And then I shine a light by asking questions ~ “say more; what is the worst thing about that? what happens when you think that? what is your body telling you?” …and more. Discover what is true for you.

Life Coach vs. Therapy

A life coach is
different from
therapy, mentoring,
or counseling.

What life coaching offers

'Coach' was originally a term used for leaders of sports teams, and now there is a ‘coach’ for just about anything. Let me clarify what Life Coach means to me. When I connect with you as a client, on the phone or Skype, I don’t see you as someone who is broken, or in need of “fixing”. Rather, I see you as someone who already has everything you need, but with a few things blocking your way which prevents you from living a life that reflects your true self. My role as a Life Coach is to guide and facilitate you in your process of letting go of all that you no longer need. This reveals the true you that is already there, waiting to shine. As a Life Coach I do not give advice or tell you what to do. What matters is you knowing what is true for you, and I can’t know that ~ only you know that. My job is to listen well, and then ask the right questions that will reveal to you what that truth is.

To better understand the difference between a Life Coach and a Therapist let me use the metaphor of the difference between a Personal Fitness Trainer and a medical Doctor. Before beginning a fitness program, you first need to have good general health. If you have untreated diabetes, serious untreated ligament damage or heart disease, you need to see a physician first before you start with the fitness trainer. It would be unethical for a fitness trainer to work with you when you have not treated those medical conditions. Similarly, before beginning coaching, I as a Life Coach, need to be sure you are psychologically stable and resilient in handling the normal ups and downs of life so you can do this work successfully. If, at our first consultation or at any point during our work, I feel you need a more in-depth level of healing from trauma, addiction, or abuse, I will refer you to find a therapist for your sake and mine.

My story

I love working with people who are open-minded, ready to do the work necessary to heal and become their best self. I’m not telling you it will be easy. I am telling you it will be worth it. I know, because I’ve been there. Like most people, I’ve had my share of wounding in childhood. Things that held me back from living out my unique self in the world. I’ve had trusted people who stuck with me while I healed, and slowly, one turtle step at a time, discovered the precious diamond that lay buried deep inside me.

Happiness only comes from within. It’s the thoughts you have in this present moment that will create your future. Learn how to live as if each moment is important, including the moments of despair, sadness and fear. It’s a paradox, but when I accept myself just as I am, then I can change.
