I have learned how to be more reflective in a more natural way and I am more conscious of myself and the time that I need to take for myself because of my coaching sessions with Dr. LaVerne Adams. I find myself saying things like “I am strong” throughout the day things like this just pop into my mind. I will keep setting intentions for myself in my moments to reflect in the middle of the day and keep moving forward. I really appreciated the time that I had in the coaching sessions and they came at a much needed time in my life when I needed someone to talk life into me and remind me of all of the tools that I already have to help myself. I have been to psychologists and group sessions and holistic healers, so I had an idea of what to expect but it all made sense the way she explained the process. Dr. LaVerne has the ability to make someone feel connected to their situation and she made me feel like I was the only one she talked to. She was very present and I felt her attention which helped to build me up. Everything she did was great and I felt that having this time set aside for me at work made me feel that I was cared for as a person which made me feel good.
After coaching with Dr. LaVerne, I leave knowing that whatever I put my mind to, I can accomplish and seeing it to the end. At the beginning, I was a little unsure.. The coaching helped me to push forward. Speaking about it helped me a whole lot. I am going to continue to use the skills I’ve learned in time management tools including my planner and setting reminders on my phone. That was my biggest issue before. I continue to relive our conversations which have been very helpful…so helpful that I started a vision board to help me stay on track. I enjoyed the homework piece. Every week Dr. LaVerne would help me come up with something to do which was a highlight for me because I actually did it and I was excited about that. I was surprised about how fast I was able to get in school and I didn’t expect it to happen so fast. I didn’t make resolutions. I started looking at 2020 totally differently. Before I didn’t feel like there was anything I could accomplish and would come up with something negative or make excuses that I had too much on my plate. My confidence level raised a lot. Dr. LaVerne is a good listener. She has a way of drawing the answers out of you. Everything about the sessions was great.
After coaching with Dr. LaVerne I have become a lot more reflective. I started examining more who I am and if I am the person I want to be and allowed me to clearly set my goals. I ask myself, “Would you be someone that I would want to be my friend?” I started reading books on strategies to be more resilient that includes activities that cause you to reflect and the exercises that cause you to make an effort to control my emotions and be less impulsive. In just a short time, the whole thing has me looking at who I am in different ways and the sessions caused me to think differently. I was surprised about the greater awareness of myself and the different facets of who I am and the strengths and fortitude of my character. Dr. LaVerne caused me to think more about who I am, What I am and how I will I change. She is a good listener and asked poignant questions that were deep and probing to get me to think and unlock thoughts that were tucked away not to be touched but I had to deal with the in a positive way and use those learning to leverage other things and reign in the chaos. The only thing is that I wish Dr. LaVerne had a “black couch” so I could relax because I don’t think there was enough time.
