Working with a Life Coach
If you're in a place in life where you want something to change, but you're not quite sure what it is or how to make it happen, working with a good Life Coach will help you find those answers!
We tend to go through life reacting to each new day rather than looking at the big picture and deciding which way to go. Even if we play with ideas of what might be different, we can only know what you've learned from experience, so how on Earth do you make those dreams come true?
That's where a Life Coach comes in! Having a Life Coach is about having an active partner to your personal development. Yes Life Coaches help to motivate you, but more than that we help you find the path in life that arouses your natural motivation!
Working With Alex
Hi, I'm Alex! I'm a Brooklyn, NY based Life Coach with certifications and training in several spiritual healing modalities.
My perspective as a Life Coach is simple. We all have a Purpose, a path we are built to follow, and resisting that path is what causes most of our stress and issues. As I help my clients relax out of that resistance, they begin to feel the fullness of each moment and find the confidence to bring their full self into every day of their lives!
When you can be engaged and Present in every day, the concrete aspects of your growth journey begin to snap into place. Rather than efforting after what you think you want, you can relax into what you've really wanted all along.
An exciting part of the process is beginning to re-integrate your past challenges into your present awareness. When we go through difficulties and traumas, we tend to compartmentalize them away from our daily awareness. As we come to terms with and integrate our full past into our self-perceptions, we're able to draw from the full spectrum of our experiences and become much more effective and fulfilled people.
The Enneagram is a personality typing system that blends psychology and spirituality to help us grow!
I use the Enneagram in my coaching because I've found it to be the best tool available for finding solutions to my clients' core challenges.
You don't have to be interested in the Enneagram yourself to work with me, in fact most of my clients aren't! Just know that there is a deep system of study I use in the background that makes our work together much more effective.
Defining Your Career
Most of us were raised with the assumption that what's practical is what's best for us. I for one spent nearly a decade of my working life chasing financial goals in the New York real estate market, only to find that money didn't solve as many of my problems as I thought it would.
Financial gain and success can be a wonderful thing, but it's all too common in the modern day to ignore our deeper personal drives in favor of what seems to make the most sense in the short term.
When you take the long term view though, you start to see that any path that requires you to deny part of who you are for 40+ hours a week just isn't sustainable.
A Spiritual Perspective
When working with professionals, my focus is on helping them integrate their full self into what they do.
Our career may feel like it's somehow separate from the rest of our life, but when we start to view ourselves through a more spiritual lens, we begin to see our work as one of the most important things that we do.
Our work is a reflection of who we are! It's how we bring value from within ourselves to the world. Everyone has a tremendous opportunity to make an impact on those around us and it's incredibly important for our personal wellness that we don't waste that opportunity.
The key is to find the greatest way we can serve others that simultaneously respects every part of who we are.
Finding that takes some self-study, some pushing ourselves outside of our comfort zone, and a lot of trial and error. But even the first step down that path feels rewarding because the part of ourselves we've been holding back starts jumping for joy.
