In 2014 I made the decision to get certified as a Life Coach. I wanted to supplement my music career with another kind of work that would allow me to connect with people authentically, the same way music has. Learning to be a Coach was inspiring and challenging. My first task as a student was to identify something I wanted to achieve or change in my own life, make a commitment and then do it. Powerful stuff!! Being given this challenge AND the support of my Coaches and fellow students taught me how to listen better, honor my deepest desires and steadily move forward towards my goals. This is what I now do with my coaching clients.
Are you feeling stuck? Unable to communicate with a loved one? Having trouble standing up for yourself at work? Pushing people away with anger issues, or just living with an empty feeling of ‘I don’t know what I want’?
Any issue that gets in the way of fully embracing your life and relationships is a good starting point for working with a Life Coach. Our work together will be about you taking responsibility for yourself and letting go of what you can’t control, all while receiving invaluable support. I want to stand with you as you create the next beautiful and wildly fulfilling chapter of your life.
I see clients over Skype or in person if you are in the Raleigh-Durham, North Carolina area. I am now accepting new coaching clients. Please see my coaching website for more info and testimonials or email me to set up a complimentary first session.
What I have learned after 20 years of performing across the globe and through working with various performance coaches myself is that “stage presence” – literally the ability to be present on stage and therefore give a captivating show – is an inside job. The lighting, the sound system, the number of people in the audience, the mood of the audience – these factors are often not in your control as a performer. What is in your control is what you are doing. Are you connected to the words as you are singing them? To the notes you are playing? What do you do when someone heckles you or you think the audience is not enjoying you as much as you want them to? Are you frequently distracted by your inner critic?
These are issues every performer faces. Through our work together you can experience being fully in your body onstage, absorbed in the moment and making music with abandon. This is what makes for a great performance. Whether you want to attract a fanbase who adores you based on your authentic expression, or even just feel a little more comfortable getting up and playing your own songs, I can help you feel genuinely excited about performing.
