“With all my clients, whether they have a specific health issue or not, we might discuss that health condition, work, finances, parenting, relationships — anything,” he said. “We are talking about life — and it’s all connected to our health.”
Making Himself More Accessible “On Demand” to Clients
Tom has been in the coaching business for a long time, and he has seen it grow and adapt as technology changes the way people interact and seek help. In the old days, life coaches worked primarily in person and via the phone, but now they have a lot more options to reach people and make their messages heard.
Today, live video coaching has become more common, and many coaching apps have sprung up to offer a quick downloadable fix to people. Tom said he sees such “on-demand coaching” as the wave of the future, and he hopes to meet that demand with his own version of on-demand coaching.
“Many of my clients live all over the U.S. and around the world, so most of my work is done by phone or video,” he explained. “This is one of the beautiful things about coaching — you do not need to be face to face to work together and get results.”
Tom can work around his clients’ busy schedules and make sure they have someone to talk to when they need it. He makes himself uniquely accessible to clients, and he even encourages them to reach out via text message or email if an issue arises in between coaching sessions. He can offer support and feedback in the moment and schedule a coaching session to delve further into the subject matter.
During his one-on-one coaching sessions, Tom told us he makes a conscious effort to give his clients the validation, respect, and understanding they crave. He takes a nonjudgmental approach to every coaching session and fosters a safe space where people can feel comfortable opening up to him. He listens to his clients and offers insights that can reassure them and motivate them to move forward.
“We live in a world of high stress and anxiety, so people want someone who can help them feel grounded,” Tom said. “This is one of many ways a coach can be so valuable.”
Reaching Out to Motivate People Through Life’s Challenges
Coaching can be difficult because every client has his or her own expectations, emotional needs, and personal obstacles. A one-size-fits-all approach isn’t going to cover every situation perfectly. Tom said he adapts to each new situation and adjusts his coaching strategies to meet his clients where they’re at. As a result, he’s constantly learning from them even as they learn from him.
As a respected life coach and author, Tom advocates for healthy relationship strategies that foster peace and stability. He advises couples to talk about their emotions without placing blame or passing judgments.
“Be present with your partner where they are in life, rather than changing them into who you want them to be,” he advises. “Too often, we unnecessarily complicate life with drama and emotions about things that are not dramatic or emotional. When we do this, we become reactionary, which creates friction and instability in relationships.”
In the next year, Tom said he hopes to travel to speaking engagements and raise his profile as a motivational speaker. His ultimate goal is to reach as many people as possible with a positive and proactive message. He intends to do that at conferences and workshops, and he is also writing two books that can further promote his point of view.
Tom speaks to anyone going through a life challenge and empowers them to overcome adversity by being adaptable, optimistic, and purposeful.
As Tom said, “I want to help people learn to reduce the impact of stress and guide them to greater mental peace so they can have more harmonious relationships.”
