Frequently Asked Questions
Can you really help me be happier?
What I offer is a holistic, effective approach to help you experience personal fulfillment. There’s an abundance of self-help these days and for many this can become quite challenging. By working together, we’ll be able to customize what’s right for you, offering the most effective way to enhance your well-being.
Our sessions are unique in that they’re not structured based on conventional testing, questionnaires or psychological profiling; rather, the primary focus is inner transformation, some of which you’ll be able to experience almost immediately.
What’s the difference between you and say, a Life Coach?
There are several types of Life Coaches that offer great value. Many share similarities to fitness coaches by constructing a specific program for a specific need to reach a specific goal. Life Coaches also ask a series of questions based on their clients’ profile to help them reach these targets.
Generally speaking, what I offer is more of a compliment than a substitute. The primary focus is not specific or measurable as such; it is more of a holistic approach that ignites your internal guidance system. Rather than focusing on external goals, we zone in on your inner being—less emphasis on concepts and more emphasis on context, bringing your innate qualities to life; hence, there are no specific targets or reporting requirements. Instead you are immersed into contemplation mode where you can experience these “aha” moments for yourself. It’s an introspective process that's unconventional and empowering.
The other difference I offer is that I integrate best practices from various fields including: Psychology, sociology, philosophy, spirituality, creativity, marketing, and business.
And how do you differ from a therapist?
Happiness Coaching shouldn’t be seen as a substitute for therapy. Clients requiring such treatment would be advised to see a licensed professional.
What If I live outside Vancouver?
