is a process and method I use to coach people in transition, business
and sales people, professionals, lawyers, doctors, financial planners
and advisors, artists, accountants, managers, health professionals,
therapists and people with marital, relationship, career, energy
or spiritual problems. I provide Coaching
by telephone, for individuals, as well as
in person and sometimes also provide teleclasses for groups. Integrative
coaching in turn calls upon a vast body of knowledge from
the field of Positive Psychology
and so I call myself an Integrative, Positive
Psychology coach. It also draws upon the developing field
of Integrative Psychology. As an
Integrative Positive Psychology coach, I
draw upon the 12 Universal Laws (see
below) in order to help my clients as well
as drawing upon my own strengths and virtues.

FOCUS OF INTEGRATIVE COACHING
During these integrative coaching sessions
I will listen deeply and carefully to your concerns, desires and
dreams. I will help you develop creative, integrative approaches
that support you in contacting your inner wisdom, resourcefulness
and guidance, and help you make *integrative shifts* for powerful
and practical benefits. I will use innovative and integrative
tools, methods and healing techniques
to help you gain control over yourself, your business, relationship,
career, personal, energetic and spiritual life. This will help
you close the gap between where you are and where you want to
be in your life. I will help you clarify, define and reach your
hopes, dreams and purpose in life.
Here is a quote from a coaching client:
Just a short note to say thank you for all your help in
these coaching sessions I enjoyed with you. ...Your understanding,
humor, and help were an excellent example for me ... as were the
techniques you used. I felt respected as a person, heard as an
individual and coached as a child of the Divine. Thank you for
all of that but more importantly, thank you for approaching these
... sessions in the Spirit of joy ...that made them an incredible
gift to me. (LB)

Virtues and Strengths and the development of a classification
system and scale for virtues in action (VIAs). This parallels
