Imagine a place where you don’t have to have it all figured out.
A space where you can show up exactly as you are.
Bring your story.
Tell it candidly.
Take a step back and a deep breath,
As you find your way forward.
conversations at the cottage
The Coaching Cottage offers one-to-one and group coaching services for high-achieving women. We’ll meet in the middle - where personal and professional collide. This is a safe place, so curl up on the couch with a cup of tea (or glass of wine) and finally say everything that’s on your mind, from the fears holding you back to your relentless hope for the future. Because while no one can make the hard decisions for you - you don’t have to carry it all alone.
“The world belongs to those who work hard and keep moving forward”
Then, life took an unexpected turn and it stopped you in your tracks. Your world was shaken. You’re still standing but not sure of your next move.
might’ve been your motto...until now.
is space to breathe, to set it all down just for a moment as you get your bearings, gather your courage and reconnect to the strength that exists quietly beneath the overwhelm, the eleventy-billion decisions, and the competing demands - that steady strength that right now, in this moment, feels far away and not enough.
Here at the Cottage, you’ll find someone to listen without judgment, walk beside you through the chaos of this moment, and remind you that, “You’ve got this.” even when it’s hard to believe. Because we’ve all had enough isolation lately to last a lifetime.
You’re used to juggling a lot and thriving but the equilibrium of your life has been thrown off by…
Conversations at the Cottage is a place to step outside of the storm, reconnect with yourself, find clarity and make a plan.
Because under the stress and indecision, under the second-guessing and overwhelm you’re still the capable, confident woman you’ve always been - we’ll find our way back to her together.
And suddenly you’re not sure how the pieces of your life fit together anymore.
You need to find a way to make sure the things that matter don’t slip through the cracks.
And most of all, you want to feel like the confident, calm, successful woman you were before.
It’s not about digging up childhood wounds or recounting past trauma. Therapy often focuses on how the past influences your present, strives to make a diagnosis and looks to manage symptoms with coping strategies.
Coaching is focused on the present (what’s happening right now) and the future (where you want to be and how you’ll get there).
think of it this way...
Every Olympic athlete has a coach. Someone to help them come up with the best strategy, cheer them on, hold them accountable to their training and debrief after each competition. It’s still up to the individual athlete to show up, do her best, and implement the strategy.
Your coach is here to ask questions, listen deeply, share tools and strategies and support you as you find the best path forward for you. Only you can do the work and create change in your life.
Action is necessary to move from overwhelm to under control.
coaching is not therapy
Coaching is a relationship between a coach and client that involves conversations around where you’re stuck, what goals you have, and what steps you’ll take to get there.
If we both decide we’re a good fit we’ll meet every two weeks. I’ll ask questions, share tools and strategies you maybe haven’t tried yet, and hold you accountable for making progress between sessions.
If you love a sense of community and peer support, group coaching might be the best fit for you. We’ll spend 2 ½ hours together every month. We’ll begin by everyone checking in, so you’ll have an opportunity to share what’s going on with you. We’ll mix it up with some smaller groups of two or three throughout the meeting to work through goals or the question or topic at hand (resilience for example). And then we’ll meet back up at the end to share the steps each of us will take to apply what you’ve learned over the next two weeks.
Everything is confidential whether you choose one on one coaching or group coaching.
