Erina Calder, Certified Life Coach Bio
I’m an Author, Blogger and Certified Life Coach providing phone and online coaching nationwide.
Growing up, we traveled a lot. Thanks Dad, for your gypsy spirit! I love that we called the US, England and Ireland home (although it wasn’t always easy), and attended school in all three countries at different stages. I graduated from UCC, in Ireland.
In my twenties I fell in love with NE Ohio. Despite warnings about the Ohio winters we moved to the land of the Browns, Cavs, and Indians, where my husband and I now raise our kids.
A few years back, while managing a Divorce Attorney’s office, I saw first hand how people going through divorce can benefit from coaching. While learning many of the legal aspects of divorce here, I also worked on and became certified as a Life Coach. Along with this, I developed a desire to work with people through this season of their lives.
I’m no stranger to divorce. My parents had five divorces between them! It shaped the landscape of my life from it’s earliest years, when dad was awarded custody of 1-year-old me. He was my hero, growing up, and later, during my own years as a single mother, I drew on the courage and resolve he had modeled. (Not to mention his ability to stretch a penny!)
I was Certified as a Life Coach through the Life Coach School, in California, by Master Coach Instructor, Author and Podcaster, Brooke Castillo. With an innate drive to see people heal their emotional lives, find their strength, grow their dreams and achieve their goals, I’ve always had the heart of a Coach. Professionally, I’ve also worked in career coaching and been a longtime volunteer in Outreach Ministry. A Comfortable Mind Life Coaching was founded in 2015.
I offer phone coaching on a secure recorded line and face to face coaching via skype.
Coaches listen. They ask a lot of questions. They stay out of the emotional molasses and most importantly, they CARE.
My training and intuition work together, enabling me to encourage and inspire my clients to get better results.
I am a Causal Coach. Causal Coaching is founded on the concept that the facts of our lives are surrounded by our thoughts about them. Our thoughts create our feelings, and our actions are resultant of these. Because the results we get in life are impacted by these factors, our thinking is our point of greatest power and our vehicle for change. So in coaching we address the CAUSE of what’s keeping you from your best results, instead of the symptoms.
Coaching is an emotionally safe, fun and effective way to figure out why you are getting your current results and how you can change this to improve your outcomes.
As your Coach I will:
1. Focus on your core areas of concern and develop a coaching plan unique to you.
2. Interactively guide you through our sessions.
3. Offer you effective tools for self coaching which you can use the rest of your life.
4. Create personal development projects that apply uniquely to you.
My clients come from all walks of life. I often work with people going through divorce. Healthy Divorce Life Coaching is one way for my clients to practice powerful self care through their divorce process.
I want YOU to know:
10% of my income from coaching and book sales goes to Fellowship Bible Church, which supports many inspirational families worldwide, who are living their lives to help others.
One such couple that I’d like to highlight are Keith and Amy Melugin, who have recently moved their family to the Dominican Republic with the mission of rescuing, restoring and renewing the victims of human trafficking there.
Please feel free to check out their website for more information and to learn more about how you can help these everyday American heroes.
