The majority of time when we’re approached for help, whether it’s for online Skype counseling, or coaching it’s a woman who contacts us. Though we focus a great deal on relationships, we also offer life coaching services and life coaching for women, both online and in person.
It may seem that we’re stating the obvious, men and women are different, but the reality is that our society is biased toward men in many ways. Men still make more money than women, it’s women who get pregnant and have children, women often have primary custody of children after divorce, and men still dominate many industries. When was the last time you met a female car mechanic? We say all this to affirm that women have needs and face obstacles that are very different for men and personal coaching for women can help.
Included in the challenges women face is the fact that men are often controlling in relationships, they sometimes don’t know how to respond to the emotional needs of women, and frequently don’t know how to listen. This isn’t to say that it’s all men’s fault, but that it can be helpful for women to learn to be more direct, more understanding of men, whether in intimate, or work relationships, and women can learn to communicate in ways that men can better understand their needs.
Sometimes it matters to our clients whether we meet in person or online. We do both. If you live in Austin and prefer to meet with us in person, please do so. Personal counseling and coaching can be just as effective by phone and online. The reason for this is that people convey a great deal of information not only with words, but also with tone. As professional life coaches and counselors we know how to listen for that and give our clients feedback. We know how to listen to you in order to better understand you and give you greater insight into your relationships, life in general, and work environment.
