Life Coaching helps a person who wants to get some help in achieving their desired goals. The life coach helps the person to determine manageable steps and accountability strategies. The life coach can act as the accountability partner for the person who may be struggling to get the steps completed. The life coach works with the person to discover the mental, physical or emotional blocks which are hindering making strides forward to achieve the desired goal. Life coaching is a one-on-one situation where confidentiality and safety is maintained. Meeting places are agreed upon by both the life coach and the person. Sometimes sessions are done over the phone or by video chat.
Most life coaches have a particular focus. It is important for a person searching for a life coach to research different life coaches to determine which one is the right fit.
Life balance is an attainable goal.
"I had the opportunity to have Mary as a life coach. She was patient, kind, and informative. She knew just how to lead me to my own internal answers – finding a way to balance my overactive mind and my too quiet heart. The lessons I learned started a chain reaction of changes in my life, providing direction I didn’t even realize I was missing. For those that are feeling a little lost, a life coach is a valuable resource and Mary would be an ideal choice. She excels at guidance, asking just the right questions, and being non-judgmental, not to mention that patience and kindness I alluded to earlier."

"I benefited from my time spent with Mary. She is a natural life coach.
She brings a unique blend of empathy to her coaching which means that
the techniques that effective are customized to your life. Mary's
genuine approach includes a sense of friendship to her coaching, the
kind that allows anything to be said. This is so important when getting
to the sticky business of getting unstuck. Mary has the mind of an
Engineer and toughness of a Mom so her coaching is at once practical and
caring. I highly recommend engaging her in this role, you won't regret it! "

"I have had 3 online meetings with Mary Beckman, Life Coach. First of all, I have never had a counselor or therapist prior to this experience. Mary operates very calmly, yet keeps me gently on topic without interrupting a thought I am trying to convey. She is very pleasant and nurturing. Her line of questioning brings out the best in me and we connected well on each session. The goals we selected together were not totally easy to achieve, but I was able to complete them. Her sense of logic and mine are similar, which made it easy to relate to her. I always arrived at the end of our time, wishing it would continue much longer. I could not answer all of her guiding questions at the moment, which is fine, because I had something to reflect on after the session. I looked forward to the next session with a strong desire to work with her and discover something more I could apply to my life and my work. I always received something of substance that made working with Mary enjoyable and worthwhile. I would highly recommend her and in fact have already told a couple of friends and family members what a positive experience working with Mary was for me."

Personal boundaries are important to have for our sense of well being and security. Having these boundaries allow us to be able to let the things we want into our lives and the things we don't want staying out of our lives. Relationships, at home and at work, are the most challenging when it comes to boundaries. Being able to know what we will and won't accept verbally, physically, or spiritually from another person is the first step in being able to set a boundary. Having consequences for ourselves, such as leaving a toxic conversation, when a person does not honor those boundaries enables us to keep our boundaries firm.
Are you able to set and keep your boundaries with others?

Childhood sexual abuse is not something to be taken lightly.
Its affects on the one abused last as much as any other trauma. Behaviors and relationships based on learned coping skills that were needed for survival do not work well once the person is an adult.
There is hope for those wanting to move past the effects of the trauma.
