I was dealing with a marital separation, transitioning to full-time employment, and had moved into a new home. I felt incredibly stuck and unable to move forward in many of the areas I faced. I needed someone to help me not only focus on and prioritize specific tasks, but also to help me deal with the many emotional changes I was going through. I found Janelle to be objective and neutral, able lead me to what was holding me back from moving forward without "telling me what to do." Janelle helped me clarify where my energy levels were as I faced certain challenges and has helped me find the skills to continue to do so. Our sessions together have given me the tools to focus and prioritize in several areas of my life. I am incredibly grateful for the opportunity to work with Janelle as my coach!
Through working with Janelle, I created a roadmap for discovering who I am. The exercises were key to challenging me to think at a deeper level. They were challenging, but good. It helped me to dig deep and do the homework and see myself more clearly through the tangle of memories and feelings and perceptions of myself. Having a coach as a mirror (asking questions) helped me go deeper. I now have a list of 3 steps to explore a path based on a solid knowledge of who I really am.
I found Janelle to be a very understanding and caring person. I felt comfortable with her from the very first meeting. I had been trying to get started on a job search because my current job environment is less than desirable. I delayed starting the search because of doubts, fears and insecurity. Janelle was very supportive and had great ideas. She helped me to find renewed confidence in myself and my abilities. She helped me to see that I needed to take charge of my own life and not let others discourage me from pursuing my dreams. I am now much more self-assured, motivated and inspired and am taking actions toward my goals. Thanks for all your support!
