Life Coaching

Professional faith-based, soul-focused Life Coaching to come alongside and help you you thrive in life, be well and in holistic health, and prosper in the soul realm.   This service will help you to harness your God-given spiritual genetics, natural gifts, and talents as well as your personality, skills, and abilities as you find CLARITY and DIRECTION, GROW, TEND YOUR SOUL, INCREASE YOUR FAITH and find your LIFE PURPOSE God created you as a ‘living soul’ and He created in you a ‘soul’.  The soul (mind, will and emotions) is the seat of the struggles, battles and challenges that hinder us when it comes to setting goals, creating results, managing personal change, experiencing success . . . being well and prospering in the soul realm. 

Life Coaching aims to draws out a person’s potential rather than putting in knowledge from outside.  Life Coaching can be effective in many areas and situations.  For example in helping a person discover their unique temperament, in career direction and development, for finding one’s passion and life purpose, for personal fulfillment, leadership, business, ministry or navigating life change.  Our Life Coaches are trained and credentialed to providef professional, faith-based life coaching in these areas.

How would your life change if you could tap into your authentic self and fulfill your potential by learning your spiritual genetics? What if you had a professionally credentialed Christian Life Coach who could help you to achieve what you desire in life?  Today you are one step closer to achieving that goal!

Your goal for life coaching is our goal. . . helping you to discover the truly unique and authentic you, achieve your full potential ,and fulfill God’s purpose and plan for your life.  Spurring you on intellectually, socially, spiritually and emotionally is our objective (cf. Hebrews 10:24).  Helping you make improvements in your life is our focus.   

Effective life coaching is a form of change facilitation as it enables people, rather than trains them.  Life Coaching is  reactive and flexible, allowing for  for personal growth on an individual basis.  It is not not judgmental, nor is it prescriptive or instructional.  However, in some cases, it may be directive.

Coaching differs from counseling in that counseling focuses on healing and restoration while coaching assumes mental, emotional and spiritual health. Coaching is for those who are:

  • Ready to make significant change
  • Ready for the next level of development
  • Looking to identify their passion, calling and/or life purpose
  • Desire more sustainable wellness and life balance
  • Want to identify your temperament tendencies, strengths and weaknesses (a/k/a spiritual genetics)
  • Want to explore news ways to effectively use your spiritual gifts and natural talents
  • Ready to embrace change and navigate life transition
  • Looking to create actionable strategies and accomplish specific goals

Your Life Coach will provide support and guidance for transforming the issues that stand in the way of you achieving your goals by playing to your God-given temperament strengths, utilizing your spiritual gifts and natural talents, and finding direction.  The Life Coaching, we provide, involves focused, faith-based and collaborative conversation that lead the client to self discovery and create pathways for sustained growth.

Many people today understand and are taking advantage of having a Life Coach on their team of professional advisers.  While athletes, public speakers and other professionals have historically benefited from coaching, people are now utilizing financial coaches, nutritional coaches, fitness coaches, health and wellness coaches, leadership coaches, temperament coaches, career and job search coaches, business coaches and what has become known as  ‘life coaches’.  Just as people are looking to counselors to help them with their problems, they are looking toLife Coach es to come alongside and guide them through life challenges to include marital, relational, parenting, spiritual, financial, to help them through life transitions and to help them with faith-based matters.  The coaching relationship will help you get results. Our primary faith-based coaching model utilizes Temperament Theory and the Arno Profile System as a key personal identification/inventory.  We call it Temperament Life Skills Coaching or Temperament Life Coaching.  The Arno Profile System does not measure a person’s behavior, instead it identifies a person’s inborn, God-given temperament. Who God created us to be (temperament) and who we become (through learned behavior) can be entirely different.  Finding out who we really are and finding ways to become the person God wants us to be (the true self), instead of the person we have learned to be (the masked self), can be tremendously empowering when it comes to achieving our goals.  Temperament Life Coaching, using temperament, is the art and practice of guiding a person or group from where they are toward a greater competence and fulfillment.  Unlike Temperament Therapy which focuses on healing, this coaching model is aimed at helping people determine and achieve personal goals and remove roadblocks to success from their lives so that they can accomplish their goals. In order to help clients accomplish their goals, your Life Coach will help you to improve and develop,  learn new skills, find personal success, achieve aims and manage life change, transitions and challenges.  We help you to achieve your  God-given potential by focusing on building your confidence, expanding your vision, getting unstuck, increasing your skills, fulfilling your dreams and taking practical steps toward your goals.  People who utilize our our services are emotionally and spiritually healthy, but are looking to make some improvements in their lives.  By identifying your temperament strengths and weaknesses, you will be well equipped to focus on and achieve your goals. Life Coaching, using the Arno Profile System, can be provided on a stand-a-lone Temperament Life Skills Coaching basis or to augment specialized coaching services offered by our professional life coaches.  For example:

  • Adult Personal Life Coaching
  • Career/Vocational Life Coaching
  • Business, Ministry, and Leadership Life Coaching
  • Signature Life Coaching and Holistic Soul Care Solutions

The Arno Profile System (A.P.S.) has been developed and tested by Dr.’s Phyllis and Richard Arno, since 1983, for the purpose of increasing effectiveness in the delivery of faith-based temperament counseling, coaching and consulting services.  Over the past eighteen years, multiple testing and research have produced an accuracy rate of approximately 93% in identifying an individual’s correct temperament (a/k/a Spiritual Genetics).  As your Life Coach, we will begin the coaching process by administering the A.P.S. Response Form which includes 54 questions.  Other assessments are also used with some of our coaching services.   The cost of the A.P.S. is $75 per adult/$140 per couple/$125 adult and personnel assessment/$75 personnel assessment (included at no additional cost with our coaching packages).  This only takes approximately eight minutes to complete.  As a result of the A.P.S. Report, your coach will learn more about you than he/she could possibly glean (learn) in eight or ten coaching sessions.  Following completion, he/she will share the results.  While the coaching may vary from one client to another, we typically began with a 5-Session Temperament Life Skills Coaching format whereby we teach you about your temperament. We recommend starting with the Arno Profile System (APS), as a prerequisite to our Life Skills Coaching services. . . it is one of the keys to a highly effective life coaching experience.

Even if you are working with another coach, learning your temperament (and temperament tendencies, needs, strengths and weaknesses) can ultimately save you time and money, and will help you to achieve the maximum benefit from your coaching experience because it will help you to better understand the temperament or the ‘unique and authentic you’ that God created.  The Arno Profile System (A.P.S.) can only be provided by individuals who are appropriately credentialed by the National Christian Counselors Association (N.C.C.A.) and/or Sarasota Academy of Christian Counselors (S.A.C.C.).
