"It was a life-changing coaching session with Cheryl. And it was only my first session. Looking backwards, it is easier to connect the dots. To realize how my epiphany had been swelling like a tsunami wave in the ocean until “THAT” very moment when I was ambushed by emotional tears - of relief and joy - streaming down my cheeks. My “A-HA” moment. I now understand that without Cheryl’s intuitive and skilled assessment of what I was sharing and experiencing as we talked, that I certainly may never have seen it, felt it, recognized it, or been able to celebrate it as a breakthrough moment of epic proportion.
Let me backup a little. This all started two months earlier when I had read Cheryl’s book “YOUR EPIC ENCORE”. A few weeks later, after reading the book a second time, I committed to doing the homework prompts suggested in her book. I won’t sugar coat it, it required a lot of self-reflection. I sometimes found clues hiding subconsciously in my dreams, but more often they were found in my conscious thoughts and visualizations. I began to write, re-write and define my story using Cheryl’s questions. I was able to take a step back, pause, dream, take in the big picture, then begin a dissection of the life of my dreams in order to create a set of goals and action steps (the what and the how). This took multiple attempts because my ego was persistently sabotaging me around every corner.
Cheryl gently and intuitively guided me through our first session after explaining to me that her job is to listen, pick out my key priorities and reflect them back to me. Cheryl cautioned me, “I don’t have the answers, you do”. She asked targeted questions to help me see things more clearly. She helped me dig deeper. She helped me discover the answers that I already had inside of me, but that were unknown to me.
Cheryl’s book laid the foundation for my life coaching session in a remarkable way. Cheryl’s coaching, knowledge, sensitivity, skills and intuitiveness made for an epic life coaching experience for me. And although I was emotionally exhausted at the end of that first session, I can’t wait to see where I am when I give her my progress report during our second session. It all started with the reading of a small book touting a big powerful message. “It’s never too late to rewrite your story and create the life of your dreams.” -- Betsy
