What is a Transitional Life Coach (TLC)?

A Transitional Life Coach (TLC) with our organization has been trained as a Certified Holistic Life, Career and Executive Coach. This Coach will support you as you face changes in your life, career, or your role as an executive, and help you explore opportunities to create positive results.

The transition(s) being made in your life may be transitions you are making by choice or they may be forced on you through unexpected events, promotions, or other changes. A TLC coach offers you support, assists you as you adapt to any changes you may be facing, encourages you to assume a more active role in your care and daily activities, empowers you to set goals, follow through on an action plan, and assists you in establishing accountability.

For suffering and enduring there is no remedy but striving and doing. ~ Thomas Carlyle

What is involved with and how could I benefit from TLC?

Transitional Life Coaching (TLC) is Coaching that helps support you in creating action plans to achieve your goals. You’ll explore your current situation.

How long will it take to benefit from TLC?

Coaching is an ongoing relationship between the Coach and the client that takes trust and time. The opportunity for success for you will unfold and dramatically increase when you decide to make a genuine commitment to yourself and the coaching experience, because changing habits, creating possibilities, and identifying growth opportunities is a process.

There is no greater disability in society, than the inability to see a person as more. ~ Robert M Hensel

Have A Disability? Don’t ‘Dis…… Your Ability!

Any person who has experienced a disabling injury or illness, or has had an experience resulting in temporary or permanent disabilities may benefit from working with someone who can relate to some of their hurdles and emotions of that experience. Whether your disability is visible or invisible, a Coach may be a valuable addition as an accountability partner assisting you to face and move beyond specific life challenges and critical moments. You may benefit from Coaching if your life has changed due to illness or injury from an accident, disease process, trauma, war/conflict, or aging and you feel stuck on establishing that next step.

There is an added benefit to having a Coach who has a disability, or recovered from one. They are able to fully understand and relate to the struggles, barriers, and the journey of recovery. They have not only survived their own personal trauma, but they have thrived in spite of their challenges.  In other words, the coach has gone from survivor to thriver.  With that genuine experience, there is no doubt that your Coach understands difficulty and knows what it takes to overcome complex obstacles. This can allow you to trust the process and get the most from the coaching experience.
