Newport News VA Life Coaching

Life Coaching – Therapists and Counselors in Newport News, VA

You have worked hard to establish yourself as the go-to person at the office. You coworkers can rely upon you for consistency and help. Yes, you are logging long hours on the clock, but it is paying off—your career is flourishing. You have already earned several promotions, and you are set to take on an executive position soon. Life should be perfect, right? Wrong. With advancement, new challenges have also arisen, both personally and professionally. Maybe you can relate to one of these scenarios…

  • Your first child was just born. The sleepless nights are throwing you off during the day at work. Also, you feel your priorities changing. You want to strike a healthier work/life balance, but how?
  • Your parents are getting older. Although they live in an assisted living home, they need more and more care from family members. You want to be there for them without cutting back too much at work. What are your next steps?
  • A recent medical diagnosis has required you to slow down. You think that you can continue with your current employer, but you need to approach them about adjusting your job. What is the best strategy?
  • You love your job, you think. At least, at one point, you loved your job. Now, you are not sure. You do not know whether to stay the course or pursue something new. What you would really like is just to think through the options.
  • Your teen is struggling, and you are not sure how to respond. Do you need to cut back at work? Do you need to pull in another family member to help? You have tried everything you know and feel stuck.

Many people are wrestling with ever-expanding personal and career responsibilities. Handling just one’s personal life or just one’s professional life would be challenging enough, but for most people, their personal and professional lives are intertwined. Making tough choices in one aspect of life may mean making sacrifices in another. Many people are reaching out for help from a life coach to help them.

If you want an experienced and skilled sounding board for tough decisions or if you want guidance on how to prioritize all of life’s demands, then consider making an appointment with a life coach. A lot of people are seeking out coaching as a way to achieve a goal or establish a healthy, balanced life.

The life coaches at Thriveworks Newport News know the process of growth and change. Whether you are working on your personal life, professional life, or both, know that we have helped many clients clarify their priorities and reach their goals.

Growing in Self-Awareness

Many people struggle with clarity of vision because so many outside forces and expectations are vying for their attention. One way that life coaches can help people combat these distractions is by increasing their self-awareness. When people know themselves well, they can distinguish between what is good and what is god for them at this time.

When people make goals and plans based upon their priorities, strengths, and weaknesses, then life often runs more smoothly. There are many methods of that life coaches use to help people become more self-aware, but one is “The Miracle Question.” There are many varieties of the miracle question but the basic task is the same: Take a moment to dream. Suspend reality, and then observe what desires arise. For example, the miracle question may ask…

  • If you had all the time and educational opportunities in the world, what would your dream job be?
  • If money/family commitments/job were not factors, where you want to reside?
  • Where would you travel on your dream vacation? What would you do and how long would you stay if you could?
  • What types of relationships would you invest in if you had the time and social skills? What kind of people would you pursue?

Take a moment to answer these questions for yourself. The daily grind often leaves little room for dreaming, but people’s hopes and desires often reveal much about what they value and where their talents lie.

Why Work with a Life Coach?

Dreaming is a great start, but those ideas also need to be translated into real-life goals and actions. Skilled life coaches understand the important of both: self-discovery that leads to action.

Consider, for example, some of the reasons people have sought life coaching at Thriveworks Newport News:

  • They want it all. Many clients aim for the stars and want the big family, the blossoming career, and the action-packed hobbies. These clients also often struggle with stress and balance. Life coaches can help these people with techniques to manage their stress. They may also help them strategize a way to have it all—just not all at one time.
  • They are facing an unforeseen or challenging life transition. Divorce. Cancer. Lay-offs. These are words that can change people’s lives on a dime. A once predictable life is now unwieldy and chaotic. Navigating new terrain is a challenge, but there is help. Skilled life coaches are familiar with a variety of life circumstances and strategies for moving forward.

Child Counseling Services

★★★★★
My son has met with Mrs. Kimberly Green for about 4 sessions thus far. At first I wasn’t sure if counseling would be something my 10 year old would be open to or beneficial. Mrs. Green took her time to truly understand what my concerns were and what my son needed from counseling. Her approach was very compassionate and warm. Although my son was not open to the idea of counseling every session she somehow gets him to open up more and more. Every session we do a recap to ensure all needs were met and outline whatever discussions that will continue next session. If you are looking for a great children therapist look no further than Mrs. Kimberly Green.

Working with Alise has been awesome. She takes the time to listen to the full story and validate my experiences so I can recognize how I feel is normal even if my experiences are not normal.
