“The best moments in our lives usually happen when our mind and body is stretched to its limits in a voluntary effort to accomplish something difficult and worthwhile”.
- Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi

WHAT QUALIFIES ME TO PROVIDE CAREER COACHING?
Good question. You should always consider a coach's background and experience before paying them.
As you may have deciphered from the rest of the website, my background is in sport & performance psychology. However, after the disruptive nature of COVID on the sport industry, I found myself exploring ways to keep my own career afloat. After some reflection I realized that although the context might change, the craft can stay the same. In this case the craft of performance coaching very much applies to individuals "performing" in their careers.
With this, I had the idea of combing my experience in mental performance with career strategy. This led me to expand my education to career development theories and models - ones that were similar to athletes experiencing career transitions. Thus, I pursued a Certified Career Strategist designation from the Career Professionals of Canada alongside working as a career coach in addition to my mental performance consulting.
With this unique perspective, I can continue to follow my ultimate mission: to increase the amount of time people spend in flow; whether that is in sport, or careers. After all, life is a performance, and we are all performers.
