9. Please, give me some context about coaching…
Coaches take the time to find out what life means to you. Marie is your partner in moving toward the life you most want. She is someone who holds you accountable, to make sure you live to your full potential.
No matter where you are in life, there is almost always an aspiration to attain something greater; closer relationships, a deeper feeling of connection and contentment in life. The nature of people to want to attain something ‘better’, understand our life situation, become more. We are challenged to define what it is we really want and how to create what we’re really looking for. A good coach takes you in new directions and open new doors that you may not have considered before; personally, physically and spiritually.
Most people believe that “hard work and doing it on your own” are the keys to finding the life, success, money, or happiness they seek. They believe that a price must be paid to attain what they want, and often that price is poor health, not having enough time to enjoy life, strained family relationships.
Athletes and performers know about coaching. They know they need someone else, a trained someone else to help them set goals, discover real desires, and effectively move toward ultimate attainment of excellence. So, they are willing to hire a coach or a teacher. No serious athlete or musician would expect to progress very far without one.
10. What if I’m already doing well in my life? Why would I need a coach?
We look at what you are tolerating in your life and what things are draining your energy?
Is life difficult? Are you free of addictions? Peaceful? Organized? Do you have fulfilling relationships? I’ve discovered that, often, people want something deeper, more complete in their lives.
11. Can a dependency be created between you your coach?
No. You may “need” a coach to accelerate your progress, yet not be “dependent” on Marie.

Marie is helping you to create a better life: deeper fulfillment, integrity, freedom, creativity, and a higher quality of life.
