the big question

THE QUESTION I’M ASKED MOST FREQUENTLY ABOUT LIFE COACHING IS: 

“WHAT IS IT?”

the answer

Coaching is a thorough exploration of your deepest desires, loftiest dreams, and truest self.

Coaching is a relationship that provides relentless affirmation and love, while also calling you on your shit, so that you don’t have to keep stepping in it.

Coaching is a mirror of your fullest potential, as well as a catalyst to be and do what’s needed to actually become that person.

Coaching is access to skills, tools, and accountability to support you in creating once-and-for-all transformation in your life.

Coaching is a reminder of who you are…even when you forget. (We all forget, sometimes.)

"I highly recommend Carrie Wren Coaching to anyone seeking solid ground or looking to chart a new course in life. I met Carrie through her soulful yoga classes and felt drawn to begin coaching with her as well. I started our coaching journey with a specific 6-month goal: to leave my current job and start a new one. Within two weeks of beginning coaching, I had already secured the job of my dreams and given notice. After landing my new job, I continued coaching with Carrie to deepen my self-knowledge of who I had been, who I was, and who I wanted to be. Now that I have completed coaching (for now!) many months later, I reflect on my time with Carrie in awe. Carrie is like that friend who runs alongside you in a marathon, tossing you sustaining water exactly when you need it most. I can now say with confidence that I know my essence, I feel sure of my path and purpose, I feel in control of the intentions I set and the patterns I create, and I’ve added some tested tools in my box for when I get stuck. Thank you, Carrie, for never judging, always loving, always challenging and supporting me.

“I began working with Carrie Wren in a time where I was seeking a major life shift – in my career, relationships, and daily life. Carrie has helped me identify and loosen my tight grip on old and false narratives of myself, and to embrace my truth. In this, I have gained so much trust, confidence, and belief in myself. In just a year of working with Carrie I went from working a draining job, to running my own wellness business that fully nourishes me. My relationships and boundaries have been strengthened, and daily life looks like what I used to dream of. Carrie is a vessel of love, support, truth, presence, and light. If you are feeling the pull to work with Carrie, listen and take action. Invest in yourself, I promise you are worth it.”

"Have you ever experienced unconditional trust from another human being? No?! You should definitely hire a coach! Carrie trusted me before I trusted me. Working with Carrie and being trusted to make the best choices and decisions for myself has given me the space to grow into a person that operates from a place of deep seated inner trust, integrity, and smart (and fun) risk taking. I’m always given time and space in our sessions to feel the uncomfortable feelings that get in the way of me taking action. I get to express myself fully, without judgment. I leave each session feeling empowered and excited about my life! Imagine that! My advice: call Carrie and hire a damn coach already!

"When we first started working together, I felt a lot of anxiety around what other people thought of me. I wanted to find consistency in my thoughts, feelings and emotions and also wanted to focus my energy on being comfortable in my own skin and stop worrying about what other people thought of me. By going through the coaching program, I was given tools and practices to help conquer some of my emotions, fears and anxiety. I am very much an action type person, so having practices and assignments each week really helped me to learn about myself and see things differently."

- Kristen, Project Manager, Chicago

"Our time together was the first time in years that I prioritized my personal goals and happiness…Once I made that small step it was easier and easier to make that choice in my life. As our time together continued the tools and insight on how to set my long term goals and vision for my life keep me on the path I wanted and not swayed back into traditional life choices."

- Michelle, Health Coach and Yoga Teacher, Charlotte, NC
 

 "...first time in years that I prioritized my personal goals and happiness."

"When we started working together, I had been experiencing a lot of the ‘not good enough’ thoughts in a variety of settings- work, relationships, place in the world, family. I felt like I was letting ‘failures’ define me, and felt guilty and shameful when acknowledging those issues. Coaching was worth it. For me, it created new way to examine the life I’m creating- to redefine what is success, what is good, what is acceptable, according to my own values, views, and experiences."

the bottom line

Coaching can change your life,  if you let it. The first step is to schedule a session. 

It’s free; what do you have to lose?
