What do you love most about your job?

Many of my clients have gained new or better jobs with more money and recognition after our work together. But what I love most is seeing how their mindset transforms, how they become oriented to solutions rather than complaints, and emotionally? They know how to get calm. This gives them an ability to take on bigger challenges–now!

What inspired you to start your own business?

Hi! I’m Amy Kay Watson, and I coach purpose-driven, socially conscious, soulful leaders to discover their destiny, own their power, and stand their sacred ground with humor, courage, and compassion.

My path to coaching began in a chaplaincy program called Clinical Pastoral Education, where for a year I worked with hospital patients, nurses, physicians, and other staff members and, through both action and reflection, learned about the power of how we show up in conversation. This is something I bring to my work as a coach and is part of what I teach to clients. I found myself wanting to help people develop the insight and skills to surpass their struggles. This desire triggered curiosity and study over the next several years and feeds my current coaching practice.

Life gave me my next opportunity to learn through doing when I moved into corporate management where, like most American managers today, I was given the responsibility but none of the insight or skills to manage other people well. As in the classic metaphor, I was given a hammer, and I went around hammering everything until some things were broken beyond repair, such as relationships, trust, and eventually confidence.

Never satisfied with easy answers, I have pursued deeper understanding around these matters for fifteen years. I have studied, observed, listened, challenged, and constantly reflected on my experiences and how I can use them to help others.

Starting in 2009, a lot changed for me. I studied relationship systems through Bowen Family Systems Theory, Healthy Congregations, Art of Hosting, and Senn Delaney Culture Shaping—all of which supported me in developing new ways of thinking about people and organizations. I developed expertise in personal and organizational transformation and effectiveness. In that work I was privileged to support thousands of people in becoming more self-aware and professionally effective.

In 2015, I added coaching to my consulting business. I’ve been training congregational leaders in healthy leadership systems since then, and I started coaching ministers in 2016. I also coach executives in nonprofit and corporate sectors, helping them create order out of chaos, as well as individual contributors seeking purpose and groundedness in their vocational lives.

Why should our clients choose you?

“Amy Kay Watson is a stellar coach in the best sense of the word. She listens deeply, asks powerful questions, and has offered extraordinary resources as I needed them. She has helped me break through some sticky places that I had all but given up on ever changing. Organization, time management, energy management, self-compassion, and goal-clarification all came into clearer focus with her gentle encouragement of curiosity and honesty. She really knows her craft, and I am deeply grateful for the work we have done together.” - Tracy Keenan, Senior Pastor / Covenant Presbyterian Church, Columbus, OH

Life Coaching FAQs

Your professional life coach will be able to advise you on the full range of coaching available and will be able to help you select the best one to suit your needs. They will also be able to answer any questions you may have. Use Bark to get free quotes and find a trusted life coach today.

You can have as many or as few life coaching sessions as you like. Many life coaches operate over the phone or via the internet so the sessions can easily fit around your schedule. Some people hire a life coach once every few months, some people have a session once a week.

Life coaching sessions will typically last up to an hour. Often after an initial assessment, sessions can be conducted over the phone, face to face, over email, via Skype/Zoom and occasionally through instant messaging.

During the session, your life coach will ask you a number of questions, such as what you want to achieve in life, what areas you're unhappy with and where you'd like to see yourself in the future. Although a life coach will work with you, it’s often up to you to challenge or reflect upon certain ideas you have to help you move forward with your life. You will never be forced to make any decisions you don't feel comfortable with and all sessions will be confidential.

Life coaching is focused on your present and your future. Coaching accepts your current reality and looks to improve your outcome moving forward. Life coaches are not health professionals and they do not diagnose you. By contrast, therapy focuses on your past and looks to delve into past actions and patterns. It is analytical but not action-oriented.

Most mainstream health insurance providers do not cover the costs of life coaching because it is not considered a mental health profession in the same way therapists and counsellors are.

Life coaches do not need to have any formal or academic qualifications but you may want to look for life coaches who possess an industry-specific qualification, such as the Life Coaching Diploma or Personal Performance Diploma (PPD).

You may also want to ask for testimonials of their recent work. You could also look at their profile page on Bark, which shows you reviews from past customers who have used their life coaching services.

A life coach is a trained professional who aims to help and guide individuals to make, meet and exceed personal and professional goals. They support clients on a journey to rediscover their own strength and abilities. This can include excelling in the workplace, becoming happy and fulfilled at home, exploring your potential, managing health conditions and achieving life ambitions.

By harnessing techniques based on core psychological principles and intuition, life coaches empower clients and provide a toolkit of teachings to confidently face difficult challenges and overcome emotional barriers.

Life coaches can specialise in one of these particular areas of coaching: career coaching, executive business, group coaching, health and wellbeing, performance management, personal development, relationships, retirement, spiritual and youth coaching.

Rapport is one of the most important parts of life coaching. If you feel uncomfortable with your professional, you are unlikely to gain much from the session. It is advisable to get in contact before you book a session to meet your life coach so you can gauge how comfortable you are in their presence. It is worth talking to a few potential life coaches and ask questions.

Yes! As long as you have a strong internet connection, then your life coach can deliver sessions via an online video chat platform. Alternatively, it can be done over the phone.
