Life Coaching Skype Sessions: A Q&A with a Client in Ohio

One of the services offered at Seattle Healing is the ability to have Life Coaching Skype sessions as well as Hypnotherapy sessions via Skype. This capability is especially valuable to clients who don’t live in the area. We sat down with one Seattle Healing client, Nici, who lives in the Northeast Ohio area and has been working with Laura since September 2014. Nici has family who resides in Seattle, and she initially met with Laura on a visit to the area. But after returning home to Ohio, Nici knew that she still needed Laura’s help, and she remembered the Skype capability. That’s when everything fell into place. What brought you to Laura and Seattle Healing? My sister and her friends had visited Laura for a variety of reasons, and they all recommended her. I was very interested in talking with Laura as a Life Coach because at that time in my life, I really needed advice about my career and where my life was headed. So I met with her in person for three sessions, but about four months later, I realized that I needed to talk with her again. And since January, I’ve been Skyping with Laura regularly.

Change Careers

To the Uninspired Woman Who Is Miserable in Her Job I am thinking of you today. I used to be you. I totally feel your pain. Today is Friday, and I will be working through the weekend … and I couldn’t be happier about it. The thing is, I love my job. I absolutely adore my clients and the work we do together. But it wasn’t always this way for me. I used to fantasize about a minor car accident on my way to work each morning. Nothing too serious but something that might take me out of work for a few days. Maybe even a few weeks. Of course, I would be the only injured party and would make a full recovery. I just wanted a break from the stress and monotony. Sustaining physical injury seemed more appealing than spending the next eight to 10 hours in my dark gray cubicle. At the time, it didn’t occur to me that this type of dread might have been a strong indicator that I was moving in the wrong direction.
