Life Coaching for Families



Meredith is a Certified Life Coach (Associate Certified Coach (ACC)) for adults and children though the International Coach Federation (ICF). This is the only globally recognized life coaching designation. The program she graduated from is the only training offered by the ICF in coaching families.

Meredith's role as Life Coach for Families is to help all individuals deepen their relationships with themselves and others so that they find life to be a truly rewarding experience. She works with the following individuals to help them strengthen their relationships like never before:

•    Parents and their children
•    Husbands and wives or partners of either sex
•    Business Partners
•    Bosses and their employees
•    Siblings

Meredith had experience seeing therapists and counselors with others and found that invariably they would judge or choose sides whenever they met with more than one individual at a time. Meredith’s ability to connect two or more individuals is one of her greatest skills because she helps individuals truly understand one another. She does not judge, so therefore judging and choosing sides does not form part of the equation in her sessions. She encourages each individual to explain what hurt them and why, as opposed to blaming the other individual. Her work connects individuals at the heart level and gets the individuals out of their heads.

Examples:

A mother and daughter were having big challenges getting along. They came to Meredith and worked through four issues, finding a solution for handling each one, within just one hour. This was a record number of issues to resolve within such a short time frame but these two had no past resentments to work through.


A father and son were so at odds with one another that the son no longer had any interest in talking to his father. The son explained to Meredith that the father was always telling him how to play hockey better and even talking to his coach behind his back. Meredith asked the father if his advice was ever listened to or if it had ever made a difference. He said “No.” She asked what was more important: Having a good relationship with his son or trying to ensure he played hockey even better than he was. When the father saw his relationship with this new perspective, he apologized to his son and agreed to refrain from advising him any longer when it came to hockey. With Meredith’s help, his apology was from the heart, thorough and ended up in the two hugging.


A man and woman had been married for 25 years. By the time they contacted Meredith, they were not sure if their marriage was salvageable. Meredith met with each of them individually and found that one was done working on the marriage and the other really wanted to make the marriage work still. She then met with them, as a couple, over skype and after that first session, both received hope that their marriage was salvageable. Each session resulted in more progress than setbacks for the couple, until within a few months, they renewed their vows. They remain together to this day.

Testimonials



Leslie Hall

"Meredith, you have truly found your calling! I was so hesitant to explore this process, but you made me feel at ease throughout and really helped ME discover what is holding me back in life. I truly feel that I now have the tools I need to drop old belief systems, change my thinking and make small changes that will significantly impact my life."

"I'll start off first by saying that I knew before I had the first (and only) session with Meredith, that she was the one who I needed to go to. I guess I just knew instinctively that she could help me, but I had never been helped by anyone who completely "got me" and who was able to piece my life together in a way that made complete sense within an hour. I'm not a parent, nor do I have any dealings at all with children and yet Meredith was able to help me re-connect with the inner kid in me that I had unknowlingly neglected for so long. Words cannot express what that has meant and will always mean to me. Meredith, Thank you, God Bless you and don't ever stop being YOU!!! You're the best!!"
