Life Coaching with Teresa Young
Teresa Young, by John Livzey

 

I’m Teresa Young. Life coaching with me is about living your dream. Walking your path. For real. Because I believe that you being the real you in healthy ways helps move us all forward.

I coach by phone, in person, and via Skype outside the U.S.

Inner to Outer


We all want fulfillment,
whether we’re just starting out, wanting more now than we’d imagined before, or after whatever we’ve been doing no longer feels meaningful.

Maybe you’re experiencing too much stress. Or you need to address a health issue.  Maybe work is depressing. Maybe everything fell apart, or needs to. Or you’re feeling a spiritual void. A crisis of meaning. Maybe you need space and time for inner work to get set for what you’ll get into “out there” next.

What will express you in the world? You get to say. Including, “I wish I knew.”

Why life coaching?


Life coaching is for bold folks ready to act
rather than just dreaming. The more clear you become, the more likely you are to create the life you want. Coaching brings laser beam focus to dreams and goals.

What comes up that gets in the way? Life coaching is committed support. An expert in your corner who knows what to do there.

What’s the plan? Being coached means you’ll take action. Coaching moves you forward. When you’re engaged in life in the ways that matter most to you, the journey really is the destination.

Why a body/mind/spirit approach?


We’re holistic beings. Sometimes what we think we want doesn’t work because just thinking our way—“figuring things out”—misses the biggest picture.
A holistic approach is energizing and inspiring because it gets to the heart of the matter: who we really, really are, or want to be.

What do you want in this life? What will you contribute by continuing to develop as the real you? Take time to ask and answer these questions, with expert support. The work you do then, the actions you take, will fit the big, deep, bold, wise, real you. Then look out, world!

Ready for what you want, including clarity?

 

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.

— Karen F., Pennsylvania, Fortune 100 executive, wife, and mom of two little guys

 

Teresa got me moving when I was stuck in a career transition. Her holistic approach embraces a wide range of pathways to change.

 — Stephen M., New York, making a mid-life career change

 

Teresa has a great presence—both steady and energizing. She has a deep sense of the artful and mysterious in life, which are assets in supporting others as they create new life circumstances.

— Michelle L., California, young creative on the rise

Life Coaching Services

I coach and champion you as you start working right where you are toward what you want most. I typically coach clients for a year or more. The point 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. Action planning. And when a particular action is the next step, I’ll hold you to it. Equally importantly, we’ll celebrate the small and large results you’ll get as you walk your path toward what you really, really, really want.

We may start with the Energy Leadership Index™ , a phenomenal attitudinal assessment that you take online in about 20 minutes. You 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 well and when you’re feeling stressed. This amazing info takes our work deep, fast.

Get in touch with me here or at 888.884.2482. We’ll connect on process and pricing.

About Teresa Young

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

In a nutshell

Life coach, private music teacher, writer, and wife, mama, and nana, 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 and use it all in providing coaching services. From a young age, I saw my future as a white-haired woman in conversation with others. Everything I’ve experienced has been training to live the personal vision that still inspires me daily. (I just haven’t “graduated” to white-haired yet.)

Passions matter

I played multiple musical instruments from the age of 4. Being taken utterly seriously then imprinted on me that passions matter. I earned a music education degree first. It informs my work as a private teacher. I was and am always coaching.

The body/mind/spirit is wise

Then in 1997 I undertook a 3-year certificate program on the body/mind/spirit as a holistic energy system. We’re holistic beings. Body issues may express what the mind doesn’t yet get that the spirit needs. Other inner and outer events may do the same. In fact, dreams, daydreams, depressions, energy surges, accidents, attractions, obsessions, and coincidences may speak to what we need to know if we take time to learn their language. This means considering the collective ideas and patterns of our species and what’s unique to our individual journeys. I began coaching others in 2000 with that training.

We know home when we get there

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. And I’m intensely connected to family in Florida, New York, and Colorado. I love, love, love travel and the joy of homecoming.

We humans want growth

My decades-long passion for Jung’s work matters in my story, too. He taught that we humans are wired with an impetus toward wholeness. A focus on ongoing development can keep us energized and fully alive rather than at any point beginning to tread water and mark time until… what? My husband Kevin calls it “waiting to die” mode.

 

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

Living my dream

In 2014, ready for coaching certification now that the field was well established, I attended the Institute for Professional Excellence in Coaching, or iPEC, one of the finest coaching training organizations in the world. iPEC’s focus on energy leadership complements my understanding of the body/mind/spirit as an energy system.

How about you?

I’m living my passions, following my dream. How about you? Then the journey really is the destination. You aren’t 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 along the way.

In Moments of Darkness, Stay. On. Your. Path. Just Keep Walking, in Compassion. You’ll Generate Light.

I wrote the first version of this piece after the November 2015 Paris attacks, then updated it in November 2018 after the tragedy just down the road in Thousand Oaks.

Reflecting on Grief, That Perennial Walk Through Dark Woods in Strange Country

I’m reflecting on a setback I’m having at this precise moment.

Dare to Swap Those Hand-Me-Down Beliefs for New Possibilities Here in the New Year.

What do you believe, anyway? About life, and love? About work? How about money? Consciousness of your beliefs—of what drives you and stops you—is a courageous approach to modern life. You can in fact dare to examine your beliefs. Reflect on them. And make choices that change your life. One central test of any belief …
