Are you someone who is 100% ready to change and shift your life into a happier place? Then meet CoachGlo!
CoachGlo provides life coaching for personal growth, but she is much more than that. I met the energetic and enthusiastic CoachGlo at Brewster/Carmel Master Networks where she is currently the president. In addition, CoachGlo is the Success Coach for Master Networks of Western NY/CT.
Her vivacious personality, as well as her straightforward guidance and genuine desire to help others, create a welcoming atmosphere. Her clients aptly describe her as “firm, fair and fun!”
Brewster HamletHub met with CoachGlo to learn more about her and how she helps her clients.
Tell us a little bit about yourself.
I’m originally from The Bronx, but have been a Putnam County resident since 1986. I am happily married for 34 years and have 3 sons and 8 grandchildren. Although I have decades of corporate experience, I have volunteered in the Putnam County community working with women and addiction for over 30 years. I currently volunteer at UNSHATTERED, a nonprofit social enterprise providing pathways toward sustained sobriety and economic independence for women winning their fight against addiction.
What problems do you help people solve?
I dislike the word "problem".... it automatically gives a feeling of negativity. I prefer the word "challenge". We all need a friend to confide in, feel like we're in a safe harbour, with no judgment. In life, we will come across those crossroads or obstacles that keep getting in the way of us achieving our personal goals. Having your life go from "good to great" is more possible with me as your Life Coach.
What makes you different from other Life Coaches?
I sometimes feel like I invented the word "authenticity".... specifically because I am real and down to earth. I tell it like it is with no fear of others not agreeing with my position. I am not a people pleaser. I guide women to find their truth and their voice. Additionally, I have over 20 YEARS of experience. I started as a Career Coach then switched over to a Life Coach when I discovered women had a longing for someone to teach them empowerment skills. I also incorporate laughter, dance and aromatherapy as a part of my sessions.
What makes your sessions unique from others?
When a Client is down during a Session, I always suggest, "change a thought, move a muscle" ~ what does this mean? Changing your thoughts or having a "go to" place in your mind can automatically shift an emotion or mood. My "go to" place is 2 Adirondack chairs facing the ocean. "Move a muscle" means exactly that.... get up, move that body...and we do that by dancing. Yes, you would be shocked at how many women (in their bad mood) will say, "CoachGlo, I don't feel like dancing and my response always is, "I didn't ask you if you felt like dancing.... get up and move that body".... and we dance together. It's exhilarating.
But more importantly, I start every session with Aromatherapy.
Aromatherapy definition is - inhalation or bodily application (as by massage) of fragrant essential oils (as from flowers and fruits) for therapeutic purposes. The therapeutic purpose specifically is to "become centered", erase all thoughts, a drop of 100% certified, therapeutic, pure grade essential oils in each palm, rub together, close your eyes and "inhale/breathe". Can one do this at home? Of course.... but will you? Just like we can exercise at home and don't. But the magic of essential oils in your body is beyond explanation.... you must experience it with CoachGlo!
What if someone isn’t sure if they want to use your services?
They should schedule a free exploratory Discovery Session. I offer a complimentary 30-minute Discovery Session (in person, on the phone, or via Zoom). This visit will give us an opportunity to become better acquainted.
Can you tell us about your upcoming event?
