Integrative Coaching


Coaching deals mostly with a person's present and seeks to guide other's into a more desirable future. Co-creative, equal partnership in helping clients discover their own answers. Coaches see emotions as natural and normalizes them. Coaches will stand by you, help identify challenges, design your dreams and work together to manifest the desires one is seeking. In Counseling the assumption is that there is something wrong that gets in the way of a person's functioning that needs fixing. Coaches help clients reach goals through a discovery process to deepen learning. By drawing a client's wisdom out, we help them recognize it, and yield forward momentum via accountability.


Coaching is good for anyone who is motivated to better oneself or needs help in creating forward momentum in their life.  Together we can customize an ideal program scenario that will benefit your current lifestyle and will support your efforts to improve. Understanding the demands of life, coaching sessions can be conducted by phone, email messaging, Skype or if you live in the Western New York Area in person. Coaching fees may vary per Coach. Please call for details.

"Our life which has a beginning and end can be compared to river.  A river  flows naturally in one direction such as our life.  Many times we go through life trying to swim upstream or we may get snagged between some rocks. For some there may be an avoidance of the water all together.   Perhaps you feel like you want to white water raft rather than just float.  These are all life expressions from within. As you step into your true and authentic self and claim your personal power you will discover your  life will flow with natural ease and at a currency that is just right for you. 

Regardless of where you are in life or what circumstances you may be experiencing we will discover ways to enhance, heal, empower and create the life you would love. "- Shawn Marie Cichowski
