Hi again. I’m Lisa, a good old fashioned life coach. I’ve been life coaching men and women since the mid 90’s and before that, I was a psychotherapist. Being old fashioned simply means that when I started coaching, there may have been a handful of coaches in the entire world. In my town, I met two.
Being a good old fashioned life coach meant that when I started, there just weren’t any niches. With a handful of coaches, we simply did “life coaching.” That was unique and innovative enough.
DO YOU WANT TO GROW?
As a pioneer, I have had the opportunity to help all kinds of people. I have helped women in high executive positions, business owners, people in the health care industry, leaders in IT and Aerospace, full-time moms, yoga teachers, artists, performers, holistic practitioners: all things bright and beautiful. Each and every person had a story. And each and every person wanted to write a new one, a better one, one that would feel right and good and true to who they really were.
Many were feeling lost in some way and they were unsure of their next steps. Most of all, they were trying to figure it all out themselves. Can you relate?
I sure can. In my youth, I was an ambitious, successful musician working in Toronto, New York City, and Los Angeles. It was “great” right? Uh…Not really. Deep down, I was miserable. I had lost my love for my career. I wasn’t really sure who I was any more. I had lost myself chasing a dream that didn’t fit anymore. I felt empty inside.
From the outside looking in, my life seemed pretty great. I wrote songs, sang background on people’s albums (Art Garfunkel, Bette Midler), and played in lots of clubs and concerts. Just me and my guitar. But secretly I knew something wasn’t quite right. I was not living my best life. Something was missing. And you know what that was? It was ME.
I WAS MISSING!
One night in NYC, I had a moment of clarity where I really heard my inner voice speak to me. I was alone, meditating, trying to find some answers when just like that, I made a decision. I was going to quit music, go back to my hometown, get a job, go to the dentist (it had been too long) and enrol in University. I heard that inner voice loud and clear. It was confirming something I knew deep inside but couldn’t admit to; music wasn’t right for me anymore. And so, I went home and did what my inner voice told me to do.
BUT WAIT, THERE'S MORE!
Of course, I didn’t find myself right away. It took some time, some self-reflection and more listening to my inner voice. In university, I studied Film Studies and Literature until my third year when I found Religious Studies and Psychology. Or maybe they found me!
Those courses were a turning point. They brought together my life long passion for personal growth and spirituality. I ended up majoring in both. I loved it so much I went to Graduate School for a Master’s degree in Counselling Psychology. I wrote my final thesis on Spiritual Surrender. I was definitely finding myself. And although I worked for many years as a psychotherapist, I knew I wasn’t home quite yet.
ENTER LIFE COACHING
One day, as by magic, a counselling client handed me a magazine and said, “Did you know. This is what you do?” The magazine was The East West Journal (now The Yoga Journal) with a cover story about Life Coach Cheryl Richardson. This was 1996. I had never heard of Life Coaching. But when I read those words on that cover, well, talk about a light bulb moment… I knew I had found myself. I had found my people. I knew instantly what my next steps were going to be.
I BECAME A LIFE COACH!
