Bio

I am Life Coach Liz. I help professional women destress, plan and be present. This brings them the clarity and confidence to make their dreams a reality.

Liz has been working for 20 years in the area of human development. She has a Ph.D. in Personality and Social Psychology and is a Certified Life Coach. She completed her coaching training with the Institute for Life Coach Training which is accredited by the International Coaching Federation.

She especially loves to do mindset coaching. Step one identifying any limiting beliefs. Step two is reframing these thoughts to a new way of thinking that propels you forward. Step three is taking action according to this new way of thinking.

Why My Spire

In old English, spire means a tapering or pinnacle like structure. Examples are found in architectural steeples and in nature with shooting grass.

The Latin word spirare means “to breathe” and is the root of aspire: “to breathe life upon”, and inspire “to breathe life into”.

So taking these words together, My Spire Coaching means finding out about the pinnacle you wish to build and discovering the breath of your life. This is the heart of the life design coaching that Liz wishes to offer.

Her application of the coaching process will focus on you identifying, exploring, and realizing your unique gifts and wisdom. She wants you to find out how you can reach for the sky and assist you in nurturing this vision to reality.
