The journey of coaching is often the beginning of self actualization, possibility and responsibility. Every great athlete and most great leaders had a coach or mentor. In looking for the right coach for you, it is important to know what you want and what you don’t want in a coach and in the coaching process. There are several things that make Heather Steele’s Integrative Holistic Coaching unique and effective. The theory behind the integrative holistic coaching process is different than other coaching practices. Coaching the “game” the client is in is step one and coaching the client into a bigger game, more desired game is step two. The results happen and growth frees the client up to be happier and more successful.
In the work of Integrative Holistic Coaching the client is the healer, not the coach. The coach serves as the guide through processes and facilitates the progressive homework. The coach will also serve as a mirror to the client and as a support person in the client’s life. The client’s story or trauma is important but not because it is real and needs to be medicated, solved or changed – but because it was intense to the client and the suffering programming began with the trauma and continues through the story to create intensity in the brain. The feelings and emotions of the client are also important and help guide the process of healing. It is essential to know what the client has held on to, misunderstood, not dealt with or needs new tools for in order to be happier, more fulfilled. All of this is part of the integration process. The coaching process is often be intense, direct and sometimes therapeutic but is not designed to “fix” a problem. It is designed to grow a more successful, purposeful life. Heather calls it: “Boot Camp to Life Purpose” training. Heather Steele is the founder of Integrative Holistic Coaching and had been coaching and training students in her methodology for 20 years. Her work is a combination of education, the contributions of other great coaches and her own soul journey.
