Hi there,

Life Coaching with Teresa Young
Teresa Young, by John Livzey

I’m Teresa Young. Life coaching with me is about living your dream, for real. About doing life your way, on whatever path is right for you. And there’s a bonus: people get to be in your great energy.  You just being you can help other folks live their dreams, too.

I coach by phone, in person, and via Skype outside the U.S. That’s me living my dream. What would be you living yours?

Inner to outer

Because we all want fulfillment, whether when we’re just starting out or after whatever we’ve been up to no longer floats our boat.

Maybe you’re stressed all the time. Or you have a health issue. Maybe work is depressing. Your life just isn’t doing it for you. Maybe everything fell apart, or needs to. Maybe you need time for inner work to get set for what you’ll get into “out there” next.

What will express you in the world? And I mean now, these days. This year, or next. The next five to ten. And that’s the thing: you get to say. Including, “I don’t freaking know yet!”

Then there’s the matter of personal effectiveness. Personal leadership. How’s that going as you want what you want and deserve?

Why life coaching?

Life coaching is for bold folks who are ready to act on what they want rather than just dreaming about it.

The more clear you are, the more likely you are to get what you want. And you don’t need to know for all time. Just now. Or next. Coaching brings laser beam focus to whatever you’re working on.

What comes up? What gets in the way? Life coaching is committed support. Cheerleading. Championing. An expert in your corner who knows what to do there. It makes the difference in handling fears. Quandaries. Challenges.

What’s the plan? Being coached means you’re gonna take action. Coaching moves you forward. You get what you need to get where you want to be.

With you 100% into your life in the ways you want most, the journey really is the destination. Really.

Why a holistic approach?

In a holistic approach, we work with the big, big picture. The view from 10,000 feet. It’s energizing and inspiring because it skips the superficial stuff. What. Do. You. Want. In. This. Life? Take time. Go deep. Sort it out, with expert support. The work you do then, the actions you take, will fit the big, deep, bold, real you. The you you most want to be.

Ready for what you really, really want?

Teresa… calls me out in the most beautiful and compelling way, reminding me of what it means to experience higher levels of energy leadership, savoring all that today has to offer while confidently turning visions and goals into realities.

I coach and champion you. I’m in your corner as you start working right where you are toward where you want to be. I typically coach clients for six months to a year or more, working three months at a time. The point of our work together is to actually create what you want, not just dabble in ideas about it.  We work in weekly phone sessions, or via Skype if you’re outside the U.S.

You get consistent, energetic support. Active listening. Empowering questioning. You get action planning. You get held accountable! Equally importantly, we celebrate the small and large large results that you will get. You walking your talk toward what you really, really want.

My style is calm and nurturing. I say daily life should be good! We may start with the Energy Leadership Index™. You take it online in about 20 minutes, then get a written report in your email inbox in about 24 hours. It shows how you tend to use your energy, your precious life force, both when things are going pretty well and when you’re feeling stressed. This info on you—and you’ll find it amazing—takes our conversation deep, fast. Where you want it to be.

The Energy Leadership Index™

The Energy Leadership Index™  (ELI) is a one-of-a-kind assessment that lets you hold up a mirror to your perceptions, attitudes, behaviors, and overall capacity to lead yourself and others. It shows a baseline of your current approach and tendencies.

What you’ll learn from the assessment and our conversation about it will change the way you view yourself and your world. It blew my mind when I did it for myself after years of all kinds of training. That’s why I use it.

The ELI was developed by The Institute of Professional Excellence in Coaching, or iPEC, the world-class organization I chose for my coaching certification.

I’m Teresa Young, a certified professional coach and lifelong explorer of the wild, wonderful human journey.

Passions matter

My first obsessions were musical. I played from the age of 4. Being taken utterly seriously then imprinted on me that passions matter. An education degree was an early pragmatic move that ended up suiting me as a private teacher, one on one. I was and am always coaching.

The body/mind/spirit is wise

In 1997 I dove into a 3-year certificate program on the body/mind/spirit connection and what I describe as holistic health. We are holistic organisms. The body is wise. Its physical issues and symptoms often speak to us about what the mind does not yet get that the spirit needs. The opposite is true, too. Dreams, daydreams, depressions, energy surges, strange attractions, life events and coincidences can all speak what we need to hear if we learn the language. I began coaching others in 2000 with that training.

We humans want growth

My decades-long passion for Carl Jung’s work matters in my approach, too. He taught that we humans tend toward ongoing growth and development, throughout life. That’s the opportunity. That trajectory keeps us energized and alive rather than quietly treading water and marking time until… what?

If you’re on the path, you’re at the goal.
—Carl Jung

Born in Panama City, Florida, I gradually migrated north to central Connecticut before heading west in 2004. I instantly felt at home in Los Angeles. It seemed like everybody was going after a dream or two. Just my cup of tea.

Living my dream

In 2014, ready for coaching certification now that the field is well established, I found The Institute of Professional Excellence in Coaching, or iPEC, one of the finest training organizations in the world. I was blown away by how its focus on energy leadership—your use of your precious life force—fits my knowledge of the body/mind/spirit as a system.

A multi-instrumentalist, composer, and wife, mother, and grandmother, I’ve worked in corporate, educational, entrepreneurial and creative settings. For profit. Non-profit. Fortune 100. Bootstrap. I’m grateful for every part of my rich life experience and use it all in providing life coaching. From a young age I saw my future as a white-haired woman having conversations with others. Everything along the way has been training to live that personal vision. To give back to life at that level.

How about you?

I’m living my passion and following my dream, my personal star. I want you living yours. Then the journey really is the destination. You’re living in ways that can keep you healthy over the long haul. Not waiting for your real life to begin… someday.

Because as Jung said, if you’re on the path, you’re at the goal.

Wherever you are. This is where I am. How about you?
