I’m Life Coach Teresa Young.
Welcome to my site! Let’s get right to the heart of the matter, what my approach as a life coach is all about.
We’re holistic beings.
Quantum physics tells us we’re energetic beings, and entangled in life in fascinating ways. So events and experiences like dreams, depressions, body issues, accidents, addictions, obsessions, and intriguing coincidences may signal what we need to know next. They may be invitations to correct our course, to blossom in new, as yet unfamiliar ways, toward the healthy longevity that’s possible in 21st century life. (Yes!)
And we want growth.
Carl Jung taught that we humans are wired to seek wholeness. A focus on ongoing development can keep us energized and inspired, instead of beginning to tread water and mark time until… what? What are we really waiting for? The someday that never comes?
But how, given the realities of our lives?
As a life coach, I say the process is pretty straightforward with the right support, though not necessarily easy:
I say it’s sacred work. Beautiful work. Yes, we can reflect on and reconfigure our goals, here in the delicious present, based on who we are today. Then we can take committed action on what we know is true, real, and important to us. In the process, we can stay attuned to helpful inner and outer signals. I sometimes call these signals white pebbles in the moonlight. They matter. And I’ll repeat, the right kind of support matters. We deserve it. You deserve it.
Because then the journey really is the destination. We aren’t waiting for our real lives to begin… someday. We also aren’t careening off half-cocked toward this or that surface goal in ways that fail because some parts of ourselves may not be aligned with it. We may not have done the deeper work of getting truly clear, and truly congruent. With that work under our belts, well, look out, world! As Jung said so beautifully, if you’re on the path, you’re at the goal.
And why a soulful approach?
You can see that my approach as a life coach isn’t rainbows and fairy dust. It isn’t grounded in a religious tradition, either.
But I am all about… wait for it… the soul. I say the soul—that highest Self in each of us—wants growth, at any age or stage of life. The soul wants the level of self-expression and satisfying contribution to life that we’re capable of.
It’s an approach to life and work that’s aided by sustained, empowering, deeply empathic and encouraging support. And that, my dears, is my ultimate passion. Read more.
