Equipping You for Life
Northfield Women’s Center is passionate about providing you with the information and resources you need to lead a healthy, fulfilling life. Life Coaching and Mentorship are two programs we are proud to offer at no cost to you.
What is life coaching?
Life coaches at the Northfield Women’s Center offer two different programs for you to choose from, depending on what your goals are. Coaching is not counseling or therapy. While we acknowledge things that have happened in the past, the focus is at the starting point of a new adventure, one where there are a lot of choices to be made. Life coaching draws you out of your current circumstances and allows you to dream about your legacy and then create a plan to make positive, lasting change. Our coaches use a combination of asking powerful questions and stimulating your creative side by using visual exercises to help you discover your true potential.
Who is coaching for?
The program is designed for anyone who desires to make positive, lasting change for themselves. We have all had times in our lives where we know we need to do something different or make better choices, but for one reason or another, we decide to continue in our hold habits that aren’t doing us any good. When you realize that you have the potential to design a life that you love, you have to be willing to part with your old, repetitive story and be ready to begin writing a new one. Life coaching can help you begin taking steps toward that new story, one that feeds you and others around you. When we are living our true purpose in life it not only enhances ourselves but inspires others around us.
Confidence at the Core is an 8-session program focused around making positive, lasting change in your life. Whether it’s changing careers, deciding on a major, leaving an unhealthy relationship or getting in shape—this program is for you! Often when people decide to make a significant change in their life they make up their mind, stick to it for a few weeks and then return to their old ways. This probably sounds familiar to many of us. With life coaching, we believe there is a process of implementing change in our lives that can help us stick to the change.
Just for Me Wellbeing Coaching is a 12-session program that focuses on areas in our life that could use a little more wellbeing. Most of us have roles in our lives that require us to put others’ needs and opinions before our own. Being selfless and aware of how we are affecting others is a positive trait to have but when others’ needs and opinions are holding us back from our true potential we have a problem.
Stepping Stones Mentorship Program
What is Stepping Stones?
The mission of Stepping Stones is to mentor young women to reach for their dreams and achieve independence by helping them to overcome barriers, continue education and learn critical life skills in a nurturing yet challenging environment. Young women in this program meet weekly with a mentor to build dreams and reach independence, one step at a time.
How does Stepping Stones work?
Women enrolled in the Stepping Stones program will also have the opportunity to meet regularly with an educational guidance counselor, who will help them take the steps needed to continue education. Through this process, past participants have successfully applied for and received financial aid, enrolled in a college of their choice and completed a degree in a field they were passionate about.
