Sometimes we just need guidance, someone to ask the right questions and encourage us when we feel stuck. If you want to remove blocks, release old patterns and move forward in your life to fuller happiness, this is the track for you. Clearly define values, identify ego-states, breakdown barriers and break through to a fuller, happier and more present life.
Reconnect with self, break down limiting blocks, find peace within, learn to accept those things that you can’t change, go back to a place of self love and self-acceptance. Learn to stop looking outside of yourself for fulfillment and instead make different choices, in the present moment to grow, evolve and feel complete.
As a health practitioner for over 30 years, I can help with work/life balance, stress reduction, movement programs and overall physical, emotional, mental and spiritual well-being. Health is not the absence of dis-ease; it’s about adapting and thriving in one’s environment. I include guided meditations, hypnosis, mindfulness training, meditation assistance, visualization, breathwork training and present moment awareness, depending on the individual's needs. This is certainly a track that can be intermingled with other coaching tracks.
As an award-winning business owner, I can help guide you to fulfilling your business and work goals. Whether you are in a corporation, on a team, building your own business or growing to new levels, I can help you with practical goal setting, determining your values, communication work, building business relationships, presence in leadership and marketing your business/practice. Speaker training can be included with this package and also the book Market my Practice, if pertinent for the client.
Let’s face it. Relationships are a challenge, whether at home or work. Learn better communication skills, which ego states are driving your bus and how to relate to others in a healthy and evolved way. Perfect for the individual looking to enhance and heal relationships as well as couples who want to grow, reconnect and get back on track.
Ego State Optimization:
It’s obvious that we have different aspects of our personalities that come out in different situations. We are different around our parents than we are our bosses. We have a different attitude and persona when dealing with children than we do dealing with our coworkers, or hopefully we do. Through ego state optimization, we examine these different states, get to know them, and call them at will to help us achieve more and optimize our time and performance.
We will identify the working aspects of your personality, name them and learn how to bring forward your best self for the situation at hand. We will also get to know 'self' and how to stay in a healthy neutral place to be less reactive, more patient and a better leader and communicator. This is one of my favorite techniques for couples, teams and individuals alike.
- Learn what ego states are and how they are formed.
- Discover your ego states and how to map them for optimal execution.
- Gain practical knowledge of techniques that will bring different states into the executive to handle the task at hand.
- Explore anchoring techniques to guarantee the right aspect for the job is available to you.
- Learn to negotiate with states in conflict (i.e. one wants to rest the other wants to plug away at work).

"Kathy has already helped me so much in the first few coaching sessions that I’ve had with her. I’ve previously seen a few different therapists and all they did was validate my feelings. Kathy actually asks you the right questions to get to the bottom of how you're feeling or why you’re behaving a certain way. She gives you the tools that you need to deal with whatever situation you're in. If you do the work she gives you, you will be on track to a healthier life and a better you!" ~ KC
"Kathy has been great. She is versatile and trained in many disciplines. From the start, she has been willing to work with my needs and take the work where it needed to go by listening, learning, and asking questions. She is an intellectual, which I like, but she is also emotionally centered and intuitive; a great combination. She has a wonderful attitude and brings positivity to all areas of her work. Perhaps some of our success comes from how well our personalities jive, but at the very least I can assure you she is talented, dedicated, knowledgeable, professional, and competent." ~ Jon S.
"Kathy has been coaching me for a few months now on a variety of topics: problems in my relationship, childhood traumas, improving my communication skills, learning more about myself and who I am. I enjoy speaking with Kathy, not only does she listen to me but she also gives me important pieces of advice and practical exercises to do. It is a process to improve one self, it requires a lot of work, time and motivation, so having the right therapist/coach by your side is very important. I am glad Kathy is part of this journey with me, cheering me along the way. Would totally recommend her as a life coach." ~ Giulia Tamburini
"Kathy has really helped me get INTO ACTION to accomplish my goals -- in a way that feels GREAT for me! I've been stressed out about growing my business and procrastinating for a long time. Certain tasks (recreating a website I love) felt like herculean efforts and I didn't know how to start. Kathy has helped me get in touch with my values and a vision for what I REALLY want, and has helped me break down my tasks into bite sized actions that are fun and achievable for me. I've spent much more time actually doing things that are important to me, than in the past where I've spent time stressing about the giant tasks I wasn't sure how to start. Kathy supports me in simultaneously dreaming big and being practical. If you're looking for a coach that will support you in accomplishing your dreams while staying in flow, look no further than Kathy Gruver." ~ BB
