HEALTH & WELLNESS LIFE COACH
CAROLINE MCKEAN, LIFESTYLE COACH
July 2015 – January 2016
Hosted a women’s Loving Kindness Retreat to help women understand and open their minds to self-care and self-love. I guided the attendees through meditations, yoga postures and designed and wrote self-care manuals to help them reflect on life and continue what they learned in the retreat.
Encourage and support clients through life transitions asking open-ended, thought-provoking questions
Provide suggestions, in an unattached manner and hold space for client to commit to their own goals.
Ask for client’s commitment to their goals and provide support and accountability to achieve goals
COACHING PHILOSOPHY: Each client has the answers within them, I help them find those
answers and believe in them, as well. I use open-ended questions and encouragement to help clients find clarity and commit to goals. When a client is struggling to commit or maintain a goal I use a positive, encouraging voice but hold each client accountable to his or her commitments.
