 You need to have Soul-centered goals.  You need to go about fulfilling those goals in life-affirming ways.*

For Winter/Spring of 2015, I am accepting a small number of coaching clients.  This is an exclusive opportunity to work with me one-on-one for 3-6 months, with a minimum of a 4-coaching session agreement (happy to explain why if you wanna know!).

If you are interested in working with me, feel free to contact me directly.  Please include why you are interested in working with a coach at this time in your life, and anything else about what might have drawn you to OLA Movement and/or my work.

For a Complementary Discovery Coaching session and to be considered for my exclusive availability in Winter/Spring 2015, let’s connect soon and have a 20-30 minute heart-mind chat.  I look forward to working with you to take strides towards fulfilling your heart and Soul’s desires!

What is SOUL-A Coaching?

SOUL-A Coaching is an approach to coaching that comes from my years of experience and training in this work. Essentially, it is a hybrid of wellness, whole health, life, and holistic coaching based upon the core competencies as defined by the International Coach Federation (ICF). Having coached thousands of people around healthy behavior changes in the topic areas of wellness and life goals, my coaching practice has evolved to be an evidence-based, holistic approach.  Practices and skills used in my approach may utilize but are not limited to the following disciplines, in addition to some influential concepts:

  • Somatic psychology
  • Motivational Interviewing
  • Cognitive Reframing
  • Mindfulness practices
  • Science of happiness
  • Behavior change science
  • Brief Negotiation Method
  • Adult-learning theory
  • Energy models of healing
  • Allopathic and complementary alternative healing modalities
  • Desire Mapping
  • Functional Medicine
  • Holistic health coaching
  • Intuitive coaching

How often are sessions?

There is not a one-size-fits all method or program to this work. Many clients find it helpful in the beginning of our work to have sessions 1-2 weeks apart, until they are feeling more confident and have some momentum to work on implementing goals on their own for longer periods of time. That being said, depending on the goals, there is wiggle room for spacing sessions out in the beginning. Once some shifts have taken place and there is traction in the change process, some clients then decide to spread the sessions farther apart, up to 4 weeks or one month (maintenance). Bottom line, we will figure it out together as we go what serves the process best in terms of timing for sessions and scheduling.

What if the cost of coaching is not affordable at this time?

Working with a coach is an investment into your future. Considering that coaching work impacts all areas of your life and has the potential to greatly improve all aspects of your health, some might say that it is priceless. However, as a conscious and purpose-driven social entrepreneur, I desire to be able to offer such services to those who may not be able to typically afford them. I am committed to offering limited ‘pay what you can’ sessions and packages several times a year, or 2-1 deals where for every 2 sessions booked and paid for in advance I will offer one free coaching session to someone from the low-income, underserved community who could benefit from Whole Health & Soul Coaching.

Is coaching similar to mental health therapy?

“If I got paid every time a person said I should be a psychologist, mental health therapist, or relationship counselor, well, I would have a lot more money.” Seriously. However, I don’t want to be a therapist for several reasons but mostly because talk therapy alone never seemed to produce the long lasting rapid changes I felt were possible for a lot of people (without mental health illness). Now certainly there is a place for psychology and talk therapy, but when it comes to behavior change there are some powerful tools we all have within ourselves and coaching can help guide a person in accessing them.

 

Learning to stay close to our Soul is an organic process, full of missteps along the way.*

 

Disclaimer: I, Lorene Clark Lacayo, am a professional at what I do. I’ve got the street cred. The experience. The skills. And the qualifications (clear throat, a “Master’s” degree, M.A.). However, we should probably give a group nod to the fact that I am not a licensed psychologist or health care professional, and my services don’t replace the care of psychologists or other healthcare professionals. With that comes the standard eye-glaze inducing disclaimer that, no, I cannot actually guarantee the outcome of our consulting efforts and/or recommendations on my website/blog/email series, and my comments about the outcome are expressions of (my very personal) opinion only. I can guarantee you this, however: I will do my best to lead you, and I’ll do everything in my power to help.
