When a world class athlete or professional team sets major goals, they sit down with their coach and create a plan to achieve that goal. The coach sees the athlete for their highest potential and inspires them to begin to live that potential.
Together the athlete and the coach generate a training program to tap into existing gifts and talents and also build muscles in areas that require strengthening to achieve the goals.
When the athlete plateaus, hits a wall or momentarily loses confidence in themselves, the coach is there to support, encourage and remind the athlete who they REALLY are and what they are truly capable of.
Cancer Survivorship coaching is a revolutionary approach to working through the major challenges experienced when cancer touches your life. We define a clear picture of where you are stuck, stopped or blocked and what is holding you back from having the energy and ability to thrive.
How you view the experience can have a powerful effect on your energy level, outlook and your ability to harness the resources you need to heal and navigate the "new normal". You may not be able to change the circumstances of your cancer but you can shift how you choose to go through the experience.
For survivors who are newly diagnosed, coaching can help you overcome the sense of overwhelm and generate a plan to manage major decisions, build your support team and be empowered to take charge of your healing journey. It is also a great way to keep some balance.
It's not uncommon for the medical concerns to override all else and significantly impact quality of life and your primary relationships. Coaching helps identify potential pitfalls like this and supports you to design actions to generate a different outcome.
For post-treatment survivors, both those newly out of treatment and those years beyond who find themselves still dealing with after effects, coaching is a way to take your life back. It helps you build a bridge from where you are to where you want to be.
The experience of cancer often creates new priorities and goals for survivors. Sometimes this can leave you in a place of needing to redefine yourself. Coaching helps you to identify your core values, what you are truly committed to and how you want to invest your energy in alignment with that which matters most to you. When you do THAT you can't help but uncover a hidden source of energy and inspiration. You can read more about cancer survivorship coaching on my website athttp://www.cancersurvivorshipcoaching.com
