Christian Coaching is a way of moving your life forward in a God-honouring way. God has a plan for your life and He wants to enable you to live according to His purpose.
Jeremiah 29:11"For I know the plans I have for you, declares the LORD, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future."
Christian Coaching facilitates your discovery of God's plan for your life, and encourages you to design the right actions to achieve what you feel God wants you to.
In many ways, Christian coaching is the same as Life or Business Coaching, but it is coaching in partnership with the Holy Spirit. So my programmes Mum-on-a-Mission and Truly Profitable are run with the guidance from the Holy Spirit on the topics we cover, the mindsets we develop and the action plans we design for you.
The results my Christian coachees have include:
Discovering your true identity in Christ and values to live by
Getting clear about your God-given talents and how to apply these in practice
Understanding God-given dreams for you and articulating God's purpose for your life
Shining light on the barriers (such as false beliefs and limiting mindsets) in your relationship with God
Identifying practical steps to take to grow in the likeness of Christ
Strengthening relationships with your community (family, friends, church, marketplace etc)
Making an impact in the area God needs you
Building profitable businesses with God's guidance and Christian values.
Are Jesus and the Bible not enough to live a fulfilled life?
Jesus is enough to live a fulfilled life.
Studying the Word of God is crucial to living a Christian life.
What coaching can help you with is to bridge is the distance between the fulfilling life you can have in Christ and where you are now. And help you get there faster than on your own. Coaching helps you apply the knowledge your gain from the Bible to your unique circumstances.
Christian Coaching is a relationship focussed on listening to God and you, with the belief that God will speak and reveal to you how to live in the fulness of the purpose He created you for.
Is there a Biblical basis for Coaching? Romans 12:2 "Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind." In coaching we deal with limiting / false beliefs and develop mindsets that enable you to live according to your purpose. 1 Thessalonians 5:11 "Therefore encourage one another and build each other up." As a Coach I am your biggest fan! I encourage you to step out of your comfort zone and help you unveil your blindspots. Coachees often feel that having the coaching sessions in place creates the accountability structure they need to progress. My role is to build you up to move in God's plan.
Romans 12:6-8 "We have different gifts, according to the grace given to each of us." 1 Corinthians 12:12-27 "There is one body, but it has many parts. But all its many parts make up one body. It is the same with Christ... You are the body of Christ. Each one of you is a part of it."
I believe that you have all you need to live the abundant life in Christ that God wants you to. I also believe that working with a professional in the area of personal development is acceptable and does not diminish your reliance on the Holy Spirit to guide you. Instead, it is fortified by trusting that the other members of the Body of Christ can help you grow spiritually.
Philippians 3:12-14 "I do not consider that I have made it my own. But one thing I do: forgetting what lies behind and straining forward to what lies ahead, I press on toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.” Coaching focusses on the future. Your past comes up in a form of helping us understand how you got to think or feel the way you do. This enables us to deal effectively with the obstacles you have. Yet, our focus remains on designing powerful actions to fulfilling the call of God on your life.
What others are saying...
"Dasha has been a God sent Christian life coach for me as I seek growth and improvement through God rather than relying on self effort. Dasha is blessed with the gifts of coaching and encouragement.
I love that coaching with Dasha is never about getting advice but is about responding to deep (Holy Spirit led) questions to uncover God given advice for my situation. Dasha is a great accountability partner and she focuses on empowering me to put things in place to help me follow through.
After 8 sessions with Dasha and with God's Grace I am feeling a great sense of assurance that I am working on what God wants me to work on. This 8-week coaching for me was an accelerated growth journey with learnings and applications that could have take a couple of years of self discovery to get to.
Thanks so much, Dasha, for using your gifts so well and for not "standing in the way", allowing God to work on me. I'm looking forward to our on-going coaching sessions." - Tammy, New Zealand
