Insight Coaching

Frozen by indecision? Searching for direction? Need advice on your writing? Here you will find support for the creative journey called “life.” Peggy uses Insight Coaching, an intuitive listening and questioning technique that clarifies the next step in the creative journey. And it usually only takes one session.

How we do anything is how we do everything. —Zen teacher Cheri Huber

Whether your question is about creative writing, a job search, or a personal issue, the answer usually lies within. Intuitive questioning brings your own wisdom to the surface. Peggy also provides practical guidance for implementing your insight.

Who is it for?

CW-Insight-Coaching-page-400Insight Coaching is appropriate if you:

can’t see the first step to a new destination
can’t find your way out of a quagmire of choices
need someone to hold up a mirror and reflect back what your heart already knows
feel immobilized by fear of change or self-doubt
need information or referral

You know you’re at an important crossroads by the high degree of your consternation and confusion. The dilemma may seem a practical one, but at each life juncture, your spirit calls you to express your true self. You may choose to answer by taking small baby steps or by an empty-handed leap into the void. What is important is that you hear your heart’s call and make a move in its direction.

Examples of issues presented for Insight Coaching may include:

a desire to write and the need for a job
creating time for oneself
whether to apply for an MFA
overcoming the fear of beginning
deciding on the next project or the focus of one’s writing
balancing family and work obligations with creative exploration

What is involved?

Insight Coaching is an intuitive listening and questioning technique honed with twenty years experience.

The goal of this facilitation is to enable you to hear and feel your inner knowing above the chatter of other voices like fear, shoulds and ought to’s, parental admonitions, and self-limitation. As a facilitator, Peggy creates a safe space, stays on purpose, and honors the process of each individual. She is committed to not imposing her views, values, or judgments on those she facilitates.

Called “coaching” for want of another commonly understood term, Peggy prefers the word “facilitation” which means to “make easy.” She is not a certified coach or counselor.

Sessions are one hour in length and can be done by phone. Usually only one session is needed.

I contacted Peggy the first time to help me decide which of her services would best meet my needs. We ended up doing the [Insight Coaching] process. It was exactly what I needed to sort through choices in search of a focus in my writing. Peggy’s attentive and reflective listening guided me to a place of clarity. Being heard enabled me to layer off some baggage that was in my way. Peggy offered additional guidance and resources to help me move my process forward. I benefited greatly from this brief process. —Farrell Sylvest, North Carolina
