"Elizabeth, I would like you to know that I think you are a really, really excellent coach. I've had private and group coaches, and also in my training at Coach U I've observed many professional coaches lead our classes, and you are one of the best. Thank you so much for your excellence!"
"The more each day passes now, the more I realise just how much I need to align my life with my VMP (Vision, Mission, Purpose). This time is a very exciting one for me. I am no longer as 'stuck' as I was when we first began our sessions, and I can visibly see my life moving more towards how I would like it to be everyday. I feel new opportunities and ideas flowing to me everyday, and I can distinctly feel I have so much more courage to live my life MY way, than I did a few months ago. I would like to thank you for that. The support and resources you have given to me have been the major reason for many of the shifts I have made. I can't wait to be able to give that gift back to others!"

" I wanted to tell you first, that I love your book! I have read it cover to cover, and as a traveler myself, I feel such a connection with the personal stories in "A Global Citizen's Perspective….it is so helpful and refreshing to see a career guide for adventurous folks like ourselves! I didn't think I would ever find a career counseling book that would be so tailored to my goals and desires."

Frequently Asked Questions about Coaching (FAQ)
What do Clients Say?
Elizabeth, I would like you to know that I think you are a really, really excellent coach. I've had private and group coaches, and also in my training at Coach U I've observed many professional coaches lead our classes, and you are one of the best. Thank you so much for your excellence!
After 4 months of coaching, I have already noticed great changes and progress in how I live my life! As a fellow expat, I feel you truly understand the problems and challenges that I face. You have encouraged me to set goals (both long and short term), decrease the clutter in my life, and have inspired me to get more organized. You also have helped me become more focused, set priorities for myself and break down large projects into smaller, more doable tasks. Through our coaching sessions and your many insightful questions, I have also learned a great deal about myself. You have made me more aware of what energizes me and makes me happy, and I feel closer to live out my dream.
You are also a terrific motivator! Our conversations make me feel better about myself and increase my self-confidence. You always go above and beyond the call of duty - always being available, cheering me on, and sending me thoughtful emails to encourage my progress and keep me going. It's as if you are always thinking of me!"
Anne M., Germany
You have truly been a coach for me (via email), and you have certainly been an important "champion" of my cause. I tremendously value your straight-to-the-heart -of -the -matter questions. ("So, what’s stopping you from buying a plane ticket?" was my personal favorite!) I think because you had the personal experience doing just what I wanted to do, you were able to ask the right questions, to play devil's advocate a bit, to dispel some of my (perhaps irrational) fears while owning up to and helping me figure how to get around REAL obstacles. In a practical sense, you got me started networking in Europe through your own contacts while giving me great ideas on how to continue building my network. Like your book, you have been a resource, a reality check (often of my OWN readiness/attitude/progress—how could I tell how I was doing?) and a well of encouragement and positive energy. You have been incredibly generous, and I get the distinct feeling that you will feel as though you have succeeded when I have succeeded! (and you'll be right..)”
Erin Corcoran, who is in the middle of living out her dream to live and work in Spain.
My goal was to move to France, and then live and work there. My original goal was 2006. Thanks to the coaching I received, I was able to compete my goal 8 months before my target (and maybe more, as I hadn’t decided when in 2006 I was planning to move!), and leave in April 2005.
Elizabeth had a wide variety of resources at her fingertips, and stressed developing “the whole person” as well as creating a specific agenda of actionable steps for me to take, in order to break down my goal into very specific, digestible parts. She also gave my ideas I wouldn’t have thought otherwise: such as researching health insurance options and options for living and working in my target country.
As a coach, Elizabeth was thorough in both making the most of our time together, and in her follow-ups after our calls. She is also a “real person” who cares deeply about what she does, and takes great pride in what I believe must be her life calling. I would recommend Elizabeth as a coach to anyone: in fact, I already have!
Pablo L., USA
My experience with Elizabeth has been everything I had hoped for. She has helped me go from hoping that I will reach my dreams to knowing I will reach my dreams. I had for years been scattering my energy and efforts in every possible direction, hoping that that by sheer luck I would bring my dreams to reality. Elizabeth is helping me learn to focus my entire life and being in the direction of my dreams.
Eddie N., USA
I have really enjoyed our sessions and have found incredible value in them. I see our coaching sessions as the rudder, guiding me in the direction I want to go and keeping me focused (not drifting). I’ve found so much value in the entire coaching experience, that I’m exploring becoming a coach myself!....”

What is Life Coaching?
Life coaching is a unique profession that brings together elements from psychology, business, personal and professional development, philosophy and spirituality. Coaching utilizes a variety of methods, tools, exercises and assessments to help clients discover their own answers for reaching their goals and living more fulfilling lives. The coaching profession is designed to bring out the very best in people. Unlike therapy, coaching does not delve into the past, but rather stays focused on the present and future. And unlike consulting, coaching does not advise, but rather empowers the client to access his or her own best answers from within. Coaching is based on the concept that each of us is on a unique path in life. By bringing more awareness and clarity of your true path, coaching offers you the means for being whole and living a life that reflects the real you.
Through the coaching relationship you will learn to feel more comfortable in your skin. You will be more attractive, energetic, truly happy, consistently focused and motivated, in control, empowered and the master of your future. You will feel as though you have an abundance of everything you need - love, time, money, peace of mind. You will learn to enjoy every precious moment of life and not worry about the future or the past. Your relationships, health and work will be balanced. Through the coaching process you will live a deeper and more meaningful life because you will be living in accordance with your deepest values.
How Can You Use Your Life Coach?
As your life coach, you can utilize me as:
You can also use your life coach to find focus in your life, improve communication in your relationships, be held accountable for following through with your goals, shift your thoughts and actions to reflect the real you, set priorities, have more energy and fun, and take action to live the life you want!
What Will You Gain by Working with a Coach?
A coaching relationship with me offers you the coaching space and support to:
My job as your coach is to listen to what motivates you, ask questions that lead to insightful answers, challenge you to believe in your talents and future while thinking even bigger, and bring out the absolute best within you. Your job, as a coaching client, is to be open and honest with yourself and me and trust in the process of discovering your own answers. That is the only way you can be true to yourself and live the life you want.
What happens next?
You will feel better because a coach will help you do the things in life that are most important to you. As you learn how to get rid of clutter and focus your priorities, you will be living consistently in accordance with what you value most. When you feel great, you will gain more confidence to achieve things you didn’t think you could do. A coach helps you believe in bigger visions for yourself and creates a synergy that propels you forward. When you are confident, you will emit positive energy that will attract more of what you need and want in your life – in relationships, in business, in your own life balance.
By attracting what you need, you will have more in life – more time, more money, more freedom, more love, more wins, more peace of mind. Having what you need, you will increase the quality of your life for yourself and others. A coach helps you create balance in all areas of your life so that you can live more fully. By understanding the long-term value that the coaching profession provides to individuals, professionals and humanity, you will be able to help others and keep the positive cycle in motion.
Why Invest in a Coach?
Successful people know that great things can be accomplished when people combine their energy and expertise to form a more efficient team.
Who do Coaches Work With?
Coaches work with individuals and professionals. I enjoy working with global-oriented, motivated individuals who are committed to personal and professional development and the coaching process:
How is Coaching Conducted?
Coaching is delivered during regularly scheduled weekly or biweekly telephone sessions, lasting 30, 45 or 60 minutes in length, depending on the client’s preference. Face to face meetings and email correspondence may also be arranged in some circumstances. A coach and client usually work together for at least 3 months up to several years or more, forming a long-term bond that supports the client’s total well-being.
It's simple: a weekly phone call where you talk about your life, dreams and challenges. I listen, question, encourage and challenge. What happens is simply profound and life changing. Through the coaching relationship you will learn to feel more comfortable in your skin. You will be more attractive, energetic, truly happy, consistently focused and motivated, in control, empowered and the master of your future. You will feel as though you have an abundance of everything you need - love, time, money, peace of mind. You will learn to enjoy every precious moment of life and not worry about the future or the past. Your relationships, health and work will be balanced. Through the coaching process you will live a deeper and more meaningful life because you will be living in accordance with your deepest values.
What is the Most Important Point to Consider When Deciding on a Coach?
As many coaches will tell you, the most important factor when working with a coach is that you feel 100% comfortable. To get the most out of coaching, make sure your relationship with your coach “clicks” so that you will grow and thrive. The mutual energy and relationship dynamic between you and your coach should flow effortlessly. If you would like to try out a coach, many coaches offer a free trial session.
How much does Coaching Cost?
Fees among coaches vary widely. Learning to live your absolute best life consistently over time requires a commitment to the coaching process, and as such, many coaches base their fees on a monthly or quarterly basis. As I am committed to my clients’ success, I work closely with clients to design the right coaching package. In addition, you may choose from 3 pricing packages.
How do I apply for the Global Citizen Life Coaching Scholarship?
