As a coach, I work with clients who want to transition into a larger, more meaningful, and satisfying life. So often we allow ourselves to settle for a way of living that sacrifices our own authenticity to gain the approval of others. Dissatisfaction and a longing for something more cue us in to our deep desire for meaningful change. However, embracing change is not easy as it often requires greater self awareness of how ingrained habits and self-talk keep us stuck. As a coach, I work with clients to facilitate greater wholeness so that they can find in themselves the trust, courage, and wisdom to live the life that wants to be expressed through them.
I am an Intentional Interim Minister and I have been working Bryan for over five years. The nature of interim work is to move into and out of congregational systems with regularity. When I enter a new congregation I need to be able to be objective and centered, even though I am moving to a new community, seeking to understand a different culture, and trying to keep my personal equilibrium, all the while knowing that I have a window of about 18 to 24 months to complete the interim tasks. Bryan has been a great resource. Bryan provides thoughtful theological insight along with valuable psychological support. His experience with congregational leadership has been a tremendous benefit as well. Bryan provides a compassionate witness when I am wrestling with my own internal world; but he also helps me to recognize where God is calling me next in my personal growth and also how to provide leadership for the congregations I work with. I firmly believe that my work with Bryan has been a tremendous benefit to the congregations I have served. I highly recommend Bryan Smith and Deeper Life Coaching. More...
Bryan is an extraordinarily gifted coach. His coaching always drives me deeper and allows me to explore my life from angles I would never have dreamed up myself. He provides an excellent balance between encouragement and challenge. Through my work with Bryan I have become more deeply in touch with who I truly am and what I can offer the world. I cannot more highly recommend Bryan as a coach. More...
