We all have a "story" about who we are. Yours may be a story of having to be perfect, not being good enough, chronic people pleasing, depression, fear, or shame, or of settling for less than your heart's desire. Your story created the life you have today. But you can always create a new story with new outcomes.

When we're born, we are whole human beings with tremendous potential. Growing up, we respond to our conditioning by adopting thought and behavior patterns, some of which limit our potential. These patterns follow us into adulthood, and their cumulative outcomes create our lives. Illumineering Coaching is a groundbreaking integration of psychology and coaching to help you reclaim your innate wholeness, liberate your potential, and achieve the results you want.

Illumineering was created by psychotherapist, coach, and bestselling author Lauren Mackler. After recognizing the limitations of using therapy or coaching as a sole approach, she combined the two to help clients achieve more transformative and lasting results. The method incorporates Family Systems, Voice Dialogue, and action-oriented Coaching, and has helped people around the world to improve their personal lives, relationships, careers, and organizations. Clients include individuals, couples, adult family members, business partners, executives, and entrepreneurs. Sessions are conducted in-person or via Skype, depending on clients' location and preference.

There are four types of Illumineering Coaching, each designed to address clients' specific situations, challenges, and goals:

• Illumineering Life Coaching: for people aspiring to change limiting patterns, achieve specific goals, or manage a life loss, challenge, or transition
• Illumineering Relationship Coaching: for singles seeking a relationship, couples wanting a more fulfilling partnership, family members facing interpersonal challenges, or business partners in conflict
• Illumineering Career Coaching: for people wanting a more satisfying job or career, professionals seeking improved performance, or entrepreneurs looking to start or grow their own business
• Illumineering Executive Coaching: for executives wanting to expand their leadership skills, better manage performance challenges, or achieve specific business goals
