Positive Change & Transition Coaching

Patricia RaskinPatricia is now offering change and transition coaching to her radio show listeners, readers and clients. This is a client led coaching process which is co-creative, where Patricia asks the questions, and you, client provide the answers. 

Patricia has a Masters Degree in counseling and was recently trained by World Coach Institute which is affiliated with the International Coaching Federation. With her 30+ years asking questions as a tv and radio interviewer, Patricia knows the questions to ask to bring you awareness, clarity, motivation and confidence.

We all go through change, but the stress of the transition during this time, often leaves us feeling overwhelmed and stuck. Before we can move on, we need to process and move through the change that is happening. Patricia states,  “The insights that come forth from clients are amazing and I have heard many aha moments."

Specifically, I work with clients who are in the process of the transition that change brings. I work with them at that moment of change. Once they have clear options and are ready to move on, I can refer them to other resources in specific areas if needed.

Here is a sampling of some of the key issues that Patricia's clients typically face:

Coaching with Patricia

* Moving to a new city

* Birth of a new child

* Starting a new job

* Changing a life or work pattern or strategy
* Going back to school

* Going through relationship change (e.g. breakup, divorce)

* New health challenges
* Loss of a job
* Financial changes

* Transitioning to retirement

* Empty nest issues

Patricia works with people all over the country, by phone, so there is no travel time and geography is not a concern. All interested clients receive a free 15 minute coaching session to see if Patricia can help them.
Please contact Patricia for special introductory rates and initial complimentary consultation.

"Zen Feminism for Men and Women"

I worked with Patricia as a radio show coach.  She did an outstanding job.  She helped me with the wording to describe my show, we worked together on the title, the intros and the outros.  She coached me in radio presentation styles and gave me many helpful pointers and recommendations.  After every session, she sent thorough notes so I wouldn't forget anything!  It was a pleasure to work with Patricia and I highly recommend her coaching skills.
