Most people talk about change and yet are unwilling –
or don’t know how – to change.
They’re unable to let go of behaviors that
keep them stuck in the same recurring cycles and patterns.
I know this strategy well. This was my routine for 30 or so years before figuring out that suffering is only necessary until I reach a point where I realize it’s not necessary.
Are you finding yourself in a pattern of doing the same thing over and over again to avoid conflict, discomfort or fear of change? I’m fairly certain that, at least to some extent, you’re putting everyone else’s needs before your own, which leaves you feeling depleted and resentful.
You’re listening to everyone else’s opinions about you and what you should be doing instead of paying attention to what intuitively feels right for you and this leaves you feeling disappointed and discouraged. This emotional state is where you may be stuck – unable to take action toward new opportunities because of limiting beliefs about yourself, or an overload of business, lack of time, and feeling spun out. It seems like you’re doing everything right – taking care of the kids, the spouse, working hard, running errands, writing your book, and checking things off your perennial To-Do list – and yet, you can’t seem to get ahead. Hell, you can’t even keep up!
I get it.
Our dramas take up so much space in our lives that most of us wouldn’t know ourselves without them.
In her book, The Dark Side of the Light Chasers, Debbie Ford writes that “either we are the victims of someone else or we are the victims of ourselves. Either someone else is beating us up or we are beating ourselves up. Either way, we are left wounded. As long as we are committed to being the victim of someone else’s behavior, or we are viewing life as happening to us instead of for us, we will continue to sabotage ourselves in order to justify our resentment. Our dramas take up so much space in our lives that most of us wouldn’t know ourselves without them.”
That’s where I come in.
We all have the ability to create a life of joy, happiness, peace, balance and total fulfillment. However, if it were that easy we would have already done it. Sometimes we just need the help of a good coach or mentor to help us see where we’re missing our mark and to help us get back on track. There’s a solid reason why professional athletes, actors and business people have coaches. Having someone who’s walked the path before you and who knows how to navigate potential pitfalls is key. Having someone to hold you accountable is what keeps you showing up for practice, and consistently showing up for practice is what enables you to play well when you step onto the court. Bringing your A-game is what makes you feel alive, and it’s also what propels you forward to achieving your goals and stepping into your vision. And, a sweet side effect is that it inspires others to to do same. A good coach is who helps you get there. A good knows when to celebrate your wins. A good coach knows when to give you a hug and and tell you everything is going to be alright, and a good coach knows when to give you a swift kick in the booty to get you up and moving again. I am that coach.

HOW IT WORKS:
Integrative Breakthrough Coaching is done over the phone so that you can engage in the process from the privacy and comfort of your own home or office. Therefore, you can work with me regardless of where you currently live.
The coaching model is designed to be a profound and life-changing transformational journey, which spans the course of 6-12 months. Additionally, you will choose a specific area of your life that you want our primary focus to be on (personal development, health and wellness, relationships, family, career and success, or spirituality).
During this time, as your coach, I will guide you through a purposeful and proven process that consistently produces breakthrough results.
Integrative Breakthrough Coaching is designed to support you in accessing your own innate wisdom and intelligence. Unlike traditional counseling or therapy where you look to someone else for direction, my approach to Integrative Breakthrough Coaching helps you to glean your own insight and tap into your own internal guidance that support you in looking within for your own answers. *Integrative Breakthrough Coaching is a program, and is not offered in ala carte sessions.
After working with Tris for six months, my life doesn’t look or feel the same as it did in 2014. When I look at who I really am and all my qualities that I am coming to own, I know that this is the guidance towards course correction and progress in my life that I have searched for during many years.
I am accomplishing goals that I have always known are important to me but that I could never “get around to”. I am a newspaper columnist and will have my first book published during 2015; I have just finished a complete de-cluttering and cleaning of every part of my house and property; I have recognized many deep-rooted and debilitating “stories” and replaced them with new and empowering beliefs; I am experiencing improved relationships, enhanced creativity, and a more joyful, meaningful life. Most important, with Tris’s guidance, I am developing tools and techniques to rescue myself from emotional self-sabotage and claim my birthright of joy and love by embracing my shadow and my light qualities.
I am more open, willing, and compassionate and less judgmental, fearful, and driven. These days I’m more likely to speak my truth, look at what’s right instead of what’s–you know…, enjoy some downtime in the course of a busy day, and place my attention on what I want to grow stronger.
Accepting coaching is a big commitment of time, emotion, energy, and money. But in the areas where it really matters to me, I have made more progress in six months than I had made in the past decade (or more!) of my life. Tris’s coaching has given me the guidance and inspiration to live in greater purpose, possibility, joy, and love.Susanna Janssen
