What is a Coach?
A professional coach gives you motivation, accountability and support, while keeping you focused and taking action. A common misconception is that coaching is the same as therapy, when in fact they are quite different. Therapy is intended to help people recover from emotional or other psychological disorders such as depression or anxiety. Coaching, on the other hand, is intended to help individuals achieve their personal goals.
What Is Cancer Caregiver Consultant?
A cancer caregiver consultant works collaboratively to empower cancer caregivers to maintain their own physical and emotional wellbeing as they navigate their caregiving journey and the healthcare system. The caregiver consultant provides you with support, knowledge and motivation.
What Is Life Coaching?
Life coaching, often called personal coaching or simply “coaching,” is a collaborative process in which a trained professional (the coach) helps you (the client), achieve your personal life goals. These goals may include but not limited to enhance self-confidence, decrease stress, improve physical health, strengthen relationships, and many more. The one common goal of coaching is a desire to achieve something more in your personal or professional life.

My aunt was diagnosed a glioblastoma and passed away in 2014. I witnessed my aunts transition from the role of sister to caregiver. During this transition I provided my aunts with the required support at the time of diagnosis, during treatment, transition to hospice and unfortunately following my aunt’s death. My experiences has informed a wholistic approach that begins with strengthening the mindset to achieve emotional and physical wellness.
