Where did you go to school to become a Certified Professional Life Coach?
I attended Christian Coach Institute and was trained to use the Christian Coaching Model.
In 2019 I completed Christian counseling training with the Nikanor Project, NTS-1 & 2, equipping me to bless clients in deeper ways.
I am certified in the Cerny-Smith Member Care training. "The world's best stress test."
I have also received training for debriefing using the Exchange at the Cross method through LeRucher ministries.
What is Coaching?
Many people come to coaching because they want to live a life of direction and purpose and need help, encouragement, and accountability. Coaching guides people to move from where they are to where they want to be. Coaching looks towards the future, not the past. Coaching is not therapy.
How long is one session?
How are sessions provided?
Over the phone, in person or Skype.
Are you available to talk with me between sessions?
Yes, via email.
Do I need to be over 18 years old to receive coaching?
What is your statement of faith?
I believe Jesus Christ is the Son of God. He lived a sinless life on earth and died for our sins. Through his blood we are forgiven and free to have a relationship with God through the Holy Spirit.
Do you Coach non Christians?
Absolutely, however my coaching sessions will come from a biblical perspective.
Who uses a Life Coach?
Anyone and everyone! Coaching deals everyday life issues, so anyone can benefit! Coaching is best suited for people who desire to make a change in their lives, are committed to their own success, and are motivated to get there.
How will Life Coaching help?
Guide in correcting incorrect beliefs and thoughts and help replace unwanted habits with habits that serve you
Increase better communication/ relationships
Help you grow in your faith, sense of purpose, hope, and courage
What happens in a Coaching Session?
Sessions are client driven. We will begin by talking about where you are now, where you want to be, and what is stopping you from getting there. We will create a plan to help you reach your individual goals. We will shine light on any obstacles and explore ways around them. I will give you helpful resources and accountability.
Do I have to live in the same location as my Life Coach?
No! Most Life Coaching is done over the phone/ internet. Life Coaching is available no matter where you live.
Do I really need a Coach? Can't I just do it myself?
You could. BUT! Most people are more likely to change with a life coach as opposed to trying to do it alone. Coaching can offer an honest look at where you are and highlight any habits that are holding you back. The coaching relationship provides discernment and accountability, and guides you to uncovering your God given passions, while creating an effective, attainable way to get there!
How long do people generally work with a Life Coach?
This is hard to answer because everyone is different. An average length of time is 3 months. This length of time allows clients time to discover purpose, work toward various goals or develop new habits, and experience confidence. I offer a variety of packages. Please reference the page called Packages for further details.
Why choose to Coach with me?
I believe God designed me for this and I have invested (and continue to invest) in learning how to be the best coach I can be. I am in your corner! My responsibility is to provide an encouraging environment where you are lovingly challenged and motivated. I will ask powerful questions that will guide you in the discovery of who you were created to be, your passions and gifts, and provide structure and focus as you take steps toward the life you really want. It's my passion and purpose to see you walk in the abundant life God has for you.
What others have to say...
Talking with Jamie has been a gift from the Lord. I am so thankful to have someone to encourage and support me while understanding the things I am going through. I am so thankful for Jamie and the support she has provided!
Olivia, serving in Europe
Jamie helped me establish new boundaries, prioritize my time and navigate my family relationships. We narrowed in on my relationship with one of my children and how to meet her where she is as she is launching into a new season.
Meredith, mom to 3
Jamie helped me set appropriate weekly goals, track progress and offered accountability. She offered encouragement, support, and helped celebrate successes through the process. Working together helped me make progress towards my goal without feeling overwhelmed by the task. We planned for ways to continue the progress. I was able to see the ways that God has been and continues to work through all aspects of my life. The process also helped me have a better picture of what different outcomes to my financial situation would look like which alleviated some of the worry over future finances.
Working with Jamie helped me understand I can work towards my goals no matter where I am. I feel confident that even small steps are working towards my goals. I was able to work through some stumbling blocks to achieving my goals and come up with some creative ideas to work around these stumbling blocks. After just 4 sessions, I feel hopeful that I can achieve my goals!
L, working in Asia
I liked seeing the CSA Profile. It was encouraging to see and be able to celebrate my strengths, and as Jamie put it, use them to under-gird my challenges. It was nice not to just take an assessment, but also have a coach at the ready to go over it with me, one-on-one.
K, serving in Central Asia
Jamie listened well and asked good questions. She was encouraging and motivational. Moving forward, I am ready to be more efficient and focused.
