COACHING

 

 Torin Lee is a coach, communications expert, mediator,Reiki practitioner,consultant and organizational change facilitator working with you to achieve YOUR goals for change. By partnering with a coach, you can explore your innermost desires, strengths and obstacles to success in life and career. Life coaching is a practice of helping people to determine and achieve their personal & professional goals. Professionally trained coaches will use a variety of methods, tailored to the individual client, to move through the process of setting and reaching their goals with an over all intention of achieving fulfillment and balance throughout the process.

Life coaches are not therapists or psychologists (although some therapists have also gone into life coaching). It is not the coaches job to “fix” you. Life Coaches work from the assumption that people are naturally creative, resourceful and whole, and that most of us deep down inside, know what we want and / or need to do to be happy. Sometimes, we just need a little guidance to find out what those things are and a nudge in the right direction.

The coach is not there to “solve your problems” for you. A coach is there to sit beside you and guide you to discovering who you are when you are your best, what are you truly passionate about and what your higher self truly wants and needs, and then helping you to discover what is in the way of you taking steps along that path to happiness and fulfillment in all areas of your life. Using the tools that your coach shares with you, your life will begin to change in ways that direct you toward your goals faster than you ever imagined!

How does coaching differ from counseling? Coaching generally follows an approach that is different from counseling. Instead of going back in time and delving into the reasons for why something happened, coaching looks at the current scenario and helps to find a way forward. Coaching enables you to work through issues, integrate experiences from life and work and find your own way to take charge of your life to get the most from it.

Add in intuition, of both yourself and your coach, and we have intuitive coaching. Though trained in a variety of methodologies,Torin chooses to work this way to guide a session.She helps you connect to your own intuition so that you can get the best answers and direction for you.She also uses her intuition to ask the best questions appropriate at the timeyou are meeting.

For Torin, Intuition is an internal knowing that produces information without knowing where it comes from. The sense of this knowing is deeper and more expansive than acquired knowledge or experience. Intuition complements and enhances our logic and analytical, evidence based knowledge. Intuition is quick, direct and to the point. By incorporating intuition into the coaching process sessions are powerful, enlightening and at times even clearing and transformative.Torin specialize in helping individuals, and groups who are in Transition: life situation changes, career changes, relationship changes, self-esteem issues, motivation and goal-setting, retirement, elder care issues, family dynamics, and executive team dynamics.  

PERSONAL CHANGE SERVICES 

It is during times of dramatic transition that most people seek a counselor, therapist, coach or other personal change agent. Learning how to grow through difficult times of change can help eliminate pain and bring our solutions to an individual’s problems. Torin Lee follows a methodology based on Skills for Change methodology. It is an approach to personal, relationship, family, and community change that recognizes the influence of systemic power on our lives and relationships, and thus generates understanding, choice, and opportunity. Her practice offers breakthrough methods of coaching, mediation, Reiki and therapy for individuals, couples and families, and organizations. When we work together, you’ll experience a nurturing, confidential environment for entering into the quiet, inner realms of your own values, your own past, your desired future, and your own thinking. A range of options are possible.Together you may take an in-depth look at behaviors that may have caused harm to your relationships and/or yourself, or an analysis of your life story, or career coaching for your next job, or re-defining of your highest aspirations, or all of these. And in the process, her change methods will help you solve YOUR problems and achieve YOUR goals.

Torin Lee believes that individuals internalize and thus embody the values and beliefs which have surrounded us. Sometimes we are conscious of these internalized values and beliefs and we may then choose something different. But often we have internalized values, habits, practices, thoughts and stories that don’t reflect our values or our current state of power and safety. This method is unique in that we work through the body to create personal change by practicing skills for the future we want while releasing the patterns of the past, and recognizing the differences between what we can change and influence as individuals and what must be changed by collective action. By acknowledging where we are powerless, we gain greater power over that which we can influence, and spend less energy trying to change something that we cannot impact by ourselves.
