Joe is passionate about education and serving others. The last several years, Joe has been focused on personal growth and came across a therapy model known as IFS (Internal Family Systems) in 2016. IFS personally impacted him on a deep and profound level and helped resolve some issues that traditional therapy could not. Joe brings his personal growth experience, his passion for helping and skills for active listening and compassion to his coaching work.
Perhaps you want to reconsider some of the strategies you have used in your life – what may have worked in the past is no longer working for you now. Perhaps you need new tools to address challenges in your life, or support with some transition or event that has impacted you. Life coaching can help you review and update your “life strategy”.
Do you find yourself reacting in situations with a level of energy that seems inappropriate to the circumstances. Do you find yourself “overreacting” only to later regret your behaviors and responses – thinking to yourself “why did I do that?” or “that was so unlike me”. Perhaps your reactions in the moment are disproportionate to the actual scenario that is presenting itself. Our minds are a tool to help us solve problems, make connections with information we perceive, or develop strategies that make us feel safe. These deeper strategies can be hard wired for us at different stages of our lives depending on our life events and circumstances. What helped us make sense of our world when we were 5, or 10 or as a teenager, may not be serving us well as an adult. Transformational coaching uses a therapeutic process of getting to know the parts of us that hold outdated strategies and transform them so they no longer impede our relationships, self love, or personal growth. This process is known as “internal Family Systems” IFS, and helps us discover a new way to relate to the deeper wisdom and clarity we have within us to solve our problems in the present moment instead of thru outdated filters and behaviors.
There is a lot of focus these days on mindfulness, the present moment, and meditation. There are many helpful tools to quiet the mind. This becomes useful so that we can have access to choices when life presents a challenge. Instead of finding ourselves reacting to life, we can connect to a calm and centered place that gives us perspective. We have access to responses that may serve the best interest of ourselves and others – and often come from a place of love and compassion rather than fear or judgment.
