Personal Coaching in Raleigh

Personal Coaching helps individuals, groups and families to bring about and fulfill new behaviors that will lead to successful results in their personal and/or business life. Through skilled listening and feedback, the coach, in conjunction with the client(s), develops and carries forth a plan for reaching their goals.

Typical Challenges Addressed

  • Relationship skills: Working closely with the client, the coach partners with them in an emotionally safe setting to have them look inward to identify behaviors/thoughts that may be preventing fulfilling relationships in life and business.
  • Career Transition and Development: The coach supports the client in making informed decisions about their career development and trajectory.
  • Managing Challenges: Personal coaching can help people recover from business or personal setbacks.
  • Communication skills: Achieve greater clarity and impact in dealing with others.

“Susan is an expert in this field, drawing upon her years of experience and detailed knowledge to create a unique individual program to suit her clients needs. I have experienced greater clarity as she has improved my work and personal performance dramatically.” – Debra M.

“Susan has a belief in her clients that I never expected to find. The skeptic in me feared judgment from my honesty. Susan never judged. Instead, she validated my feelings, put them in perspective, and empowered me to take ownership of my life.” -Maria D.

“Experiencing a coaching session with horses was rich and informative. The horses definitely provide an honest reflection of the issues that we, as clients, are working with; while Susan provides direct guidance and powerful questions to help us gain awareness and insight. With the horses, I learned so much about the way I lead both my self and others and how it’s perceived by “other” – in this case a horse – and in this non-verbal space, in the presence of this beautiful, humbling, wise animal, there was only pure energetic reaction from which I could learn and keep growing.” – Suzanne Ballantyne, Certified Health & Wellness Coach
