Pocket Coaching - LELA House


Pocket Coaching

30 days of unlimited email coaching - like having a coach in your pocket

If you ever need someone to walk alongside you while you're going through something in life, then email coaching is for you. Email coaching is a great way to participate in coaching on your schedule and to give yourself time to think, process, and respond without the pressure of synchronous interactions. In every email, you will receive my full, undivided attention. 

So lay it on me. I'm here to help.

Maybe you would like some support while navigating one or more of the following.
  • An ailing parent
  • A child experiencing transitions, challenges, and changes at school
  • Job dissatisfaction
  • Burnout
  • Feeling like who you are isn't who others want you to be
  • A dissertation (The writing is typically not the most trying part of the dissertation process; nevertheless, I am happy to review brief excerpts of your writing, in addition to whatever other support you may need.) 
  • A difficult-to-wrangle dissertation committee
  • A career change
  • An idea you want to bring to life
  • A book you've been talking about writing
  • Workplace challenges and conflicts
  • Being your best self at home and work everyday
  • Compassion fatigue
  • Setting boundaries
Pocket Coaching is a safe place to pour out your heart and share your burden. I will prayerfully read your emails and respond to what I believe are the most pressing issues.

I may respond with questions. Or maybe suggestions. I might recommend a book or article. Perhaps a journaling exercise. I may present you with biblical scriptures to ponder. I might suggest trying something new and incorporating some creativity into your life. Perhaps I'll give you a worksheet to complete or a video to watch.

My response to you will be tailored to you and your individual situation. And together we will explore how to uncover the root of whatever is going on and create a path  for you to move forward in a way that cares for you and honors your values.

Email Coaching Guidelines
  • Feel free to express what you need to express in each email. I will respond to what I feel is the most pressing issue, even if that means I don't respond to something you directly asked. I'm here to help you get to the heart of the matter so you can move forward.
  • Please include all information inside the email. Do not send links or attachments (especially of your writing). Instead, paste the actual text in the email (up to 100 words per email, per day).
  • Please remember this is email-based coaching only. We will not have any Zoom calls.
  • Please be mindful that you control your level of involvement. I want to honor your need for contemplation, reflection, space, and time, so I will not reach out. Reach out to me when you're ready.
  • Please reply to our emails in one continuous chain. That way we have a record of our interactions that you can reference when you want a refresher of what we discussed.
