Self-Help Guru Now Offers Coaching Too!
About Elisabeth Kuhn, Ph.D., MFA
I have had a passion for self-help and personal growth stuff for as long as I can remember. I mean, even as a kid in Germany I used to collect inspirational quotes!
And the more I learn, the more I want to share all that amazing info with others. Myfavoriteselfhelpstuff.com is the place where I am finally able to do just that 🙂
Former Foreign Student and Professor Navigated Major Changes and Big Stress
As someone who’s moved halfway around the world to go to graduate school, and then moved across the continent for her college professor job, I’ve navigated some major changes, and big stress.
The Turning Point: Breast Cancer
And then I was diagnosed with breast cancer. That experience changed my life: I made a point to live with much more appreciation, found joy where before I had neither noticed nor looked for it, and became a poet.
Why I Started Coaching
Meanwhile, my passion for self-help became especially focused on taming stress and helping myself and others turn stumbling blocks into stepping stones. And I’m excited about doing that now on a more personalized level through my coaching practice.
Even as a professor, I helped numerous students of mine navigate the challenges of being students or graduate students, and I sometimes coached them through more personal challenges as well. Among other things, I helped them with exam stress and fear of public speaking with great success. Plus I helped them get into graduate schools that worked for them.
And since I started my coaching practice, I’ve been especially gratified with the results I’ve been getting.
Here is what happened in one client’s case:
When we first spoke during the strategy session, she was miserable. She felt trapped in an impossible situation.
We analyzed her situation and determined what the various aspects of the situation were that contributed to that feeling, and developed a strategy for changing those things one after the other.
After five weeks of coaching, she now feels happy, appreciated, and very optimistic about her future.
Here’s what happened in another client’s case:
This client wanted to get rid of his gambling problem, which included betting on horse racing and spending far too much on Forex trading. He also smoked and wanted to stop.
Within just a few weeks, he closed his accounts and no longer has an interest in gambling or trading. It took a bit longer to get him to stop smoking, but he achieved that as well.
In addition, he became much more focused and systematic with building his internet business and eliminated a lot of the time wasting activities and focused on building his “empire” one step after the other.
It’s results like these that make me so excited about coaching. I really enjoy helping people make a real difference in their lives.
