How do you find hope and healing in the midst of pain and suffering? How you stay strong when forced to confront the here-and-now, sometimes painful realities of life? How do you keep moving forward when life “pushes you to the edge,” or “takes the wind out of your sails,” or “pulls the rug out from underneath you?” The answer: Resilience.
Resilience is the capacity to rebound from life’s struggles, strengthened by the experience, and better equipped to live fully, love deeply, and weather future crises with poise. Resilience ensures that change and challenge improves, rather than hurts your life, and fortifies, rather than weakens you. Resilience helps you to see that difficulties needn’t leave you permanently damaged, only temporarily challenged.
Everyone has the capacity for resilience, no matter who you are, where you come from, what your background and belief, or what your DNA is. And we help clients build it.
Resilience coaching is for anyone facing any kind of adversity or setback that disrupts the rhythm and security of daily life. For instance, a difficult diagnosis or health concern, a meaningful life transition, grief or loss, trauma or tragedy, relationship issues, a crisis of faith, emotional problems, family dynamics, work related issues, end of life concerns, among others. Our goal is to help you more than survive life's challenges, but to actually thrive in their wake.
We understand that adversity affects the whole person, therefore we take an integrated approach. We also recognize that adversity touches people in many different ways; moreover, that healing occurs on different timeframes. Accordingly, all of our tools, resources, and support services are designed to meet you wherever you are at. Lastly, we know that you don’t have to be clinically depressed to be emotionally distressed. Not only do we help clients understand these crucial differences, but also we ensure that they are on is the most effective path forward for health and wholeness.
Through resilience coaching, you will better understand the nature of resilience—dispel the myths, learn new facts and insights; discover what it takes for you personally to overcome adversity and build resilience; learn how emotions play into the mix—for both good and ill—and how to leverage them to your advantage; discover what it takes to “struggle well”; learn what it takes to hold onto your core and stay centered in any circumstance; be able to take decisive action in the midst of pain or confusion; identify realistic goals and develop actionable strategies that take you from pain to gain; develop a coherent sense of time—being able to see yourself fully and peacefully in the past, present, and future; grow in confidence that life is always worth living, everyday, come what may.
