HIHI I’m Mel and I’m excited to get to know you all and introduce myself. Please pop your own intros in the comments telling us about yourselves!
As you may or may not know, I’m a Certified Life Coach. I specialize in helping women unleash their wild side and get comfortable with the topic of intimacy. Hopefully this post will help you understand what life coaching is all about.
I was a stay-at-home Mom and after years of working full time and overtime (military and government contracting) I needed something to do. I wanted more. I knew that I didn’t want to go back to working for someone else. So I took a look back on my life and found that out of everything that I have done, I have always loved (and never got tired of) listening/helping out my friends. So I set out looking for how to do just that but not diagnose people. That’s how I found life coaching. I fell in love with it.
What is life coaching? Life coaching is helping people get to where they want to go. It’s not about focusing on what you did as a baby or how much your parents may or may not have loved you. Let’s focus on the here and now, and get you to your future ideal.
How does this differ from therapy/counseling? Therapy and counseling can be past focused; focused on the why. They might have to diagnose you with something in order to keep charging your insurance company. Coaching accepts you for who you are now and gets you to your best self.
What do you mean by wild side and intimacy? Many women feel like they are just playing roles in life (aka worker, Mom, maid, taxi driver, etc). When one is playing a role, they might not be connected with their true selves and/or they have lost all confidence in themselves. Typically when you lose confidence, your sex drive goes WAY down. Your wild side is your true self (no matter what other people think). When you get in touch with that wild side, you gain confidence and your sex drive comes back if not better than ever before.
Why wild women and intimacy? I was one of those ladies who lost themselves. I was in a stale marriage (at least it felt that way to me) and it felt like I was only playing the roles of wife and mom. I read about certain intimacy lifestyles and I couldn’t get enough of the topic. I love talking about sex (weirdly though, was embarrassed to talk about it with my husband). During coaching school, we get coached as well. The coaching process allowed me to pluck up the courage to actually speak up to my husband. He was 100% supportive and I’ve been letting out my own wild woman. It’s so freeing and I just want to help other ladies feel as free as I do.
I AM A GEEK! You’ll probably see plenty of geeky memes and show references here in this group. We all have fandoms of some kind, even if we don’t call them fandoms. Personally, I love Supernatural/Firefly/Doctor Who/Star Wars/Marvel Universe/Star Trek/Cult Classic Horror movies.
