Internal Transformation with Group Coaching
Life coaching is an effective way to create new habits, thinking patterns and approach to each moment in your life. You can choose to work with Rachel and two/three other like-minded people in a private group coaching program.
The coaching Rachel offers is a blend of practical and intuitive guidance, rooted in spiritual wisdom and in my own intuition, to support your development as a multi-faceted, luminous human in a fast-paced world.
With a foot in both metaphysical and practical worlds, I combine my abilities to support you in achieving clear, actionable goals that can translate into everyday successes together with my encouraging you to develop your own intuition and access higher guidance from the universe (or whatever higher power you choose). We will focus on diving first into your inner self to then jump into the practical world of manifesting your goals.
By diving into both the specific external issues and internal “stuck” feelings holding you back with tools like writing and visualization, we move toward an vision of how you want to be, feel and experience your life.
Coaching sessions take place at Sage Wellness, 980 Forest Avenue in Portland, Maine. It is a low office building, and the entrance is in the rear with plenty of parking. In the summer we sometimes meet outside in a "secret" park near Portland! Virtual sessions take place on Zoom videoconferencing.
What Group Coaching Clients Have Said:
Group Life Coaching
This is recommended for people who enjoy receiving support from a group and who are comfortable sharing personal details with a few other people on a similar path.
It can take a lot of courage to make changes in your life, and the support of a group, as well as with Rachel, can create a significant shift to alter the course of your life. The energy generated in a small group of souls can be powerful enough to uplift and transform negativity into optimism, hope and transformation.
In this group coaching program, you will come together with two-three other people twice a month to share what you are experiencing in your life and in what areas you seek support, guidance and ideas. This group is intentionally kept small so that Rachel can provide each participant with individual attention and focus.
Each gathering will offer:
- Individual check-ins
- “My Turn” times for each participant to share, receive coaching guidance from Rachel and from other participants
- Writing tools and handouts specific to what you're experiencing in your life, particularly focused on working with the fears, doubts and worries of the negative Ego held in the subconscious mind
- Establishing action steps you intend to take
- Guided meditations as a group to access the subconscious mind and Divine guidance
- “Accountability/intention partners” to check in with each other in between sessions
- Optional Akashic Records reading
The format of group coaching is structured so that we meet regularly, but also have space in between our meeting times – when the real work is done! You will be encouraged to connect with each other between sessions to ask questions, discuss what you are struggling with, and give and get encouragement to take bold steps toward making change in your life!
Our format for group coaching looks like:
- A 3-month commitment
- Meeting twice a month
- Sessions of 2 hours in length on a Monday evening
- Free 3-month membership in the Soulful Work Community (includes monthly gatherings (virtual or in-person), videos/guided meditations/tools in an online platform, and a private group)
- Option to continue meeting for monthly check-ins
The next group coaching session will begin in September/October 2018. Please note that each session is limited to 3-4 participants to provide for a supportive, private environment and more personalized attention. Interested people are asked to talk individually (email or phone call) with Rachel to discuss your interests and ensure that group coaching is a good fit for you.

Frequently Asked Questions About Coaching
What is coaching like with Rachel?
My approach blends the metaphysical with the practical, the spiritual with the everyday, and my own life experience with my studies in personal development and parapsychology.
Intuitive guidance/coaching work with me is based on diving in deep to the thoughts, emotions and energy, and developing goal-oriented abilities to access the higher self to guide us through life. I blend my own intuitive guidance and connection with Divine Source with a Co-Active Coaching model.
You have free will as you move through life, but there is also Divine will (which comes from your soul’s deciding on what lessons to learn in life). We balance these two aspects of life in our sessions together. You will be learning and opening, and you will be experimenting and taking action. Some sessions are more concrete and action-oriented, moving you forward, while other sessions may focus on exploring what is hidden deep within your subconscious and what might not always feel easy.
My roots around quieting the mind and consciousness are in Shambhala Buddhism, and in other meditation techniques I have practiced over the years. The practical tools for stillness in everyday life are rooted in the works of people like Pema Chodron, Eckhart Tolle, Doreen Virtue and Jose Silva’s The Silva Method.
We create a vision for making change in your life and on creating, connecting and stepping into the flow of what is possible for you. My approach in this is rooted in ideas from the group consciousness called Abraham Hicks and even Elizabeth Gilbert. I use guided meditation and visualization techniques as tools, and also Tarot cards to help uncover hidden forces at play in your life. You can choose to have a Tarot reading at some point during our sessions (ideally no more than once every few months).
How do we work together?
My job as your coach is to bring to our work resources, tools and wisdom to support you on your soul’s journey to self-actualization and fulfillment. I see through the veils that we all put up around ourselves, and assist you in seeing through your own veil in kind. I will be looking for the “core” of you, through the words you say and through your emotions and body expressions. I provide the “gentle nudge” that you may want and need to encourage you to move forward toward your goals. Together, we will design action steps for you to work on between each session together, and decide how you want to be held accountable and how often.
I speak openly and honestly, and tell you what I see without hesitation. I do this by looking for and eliciting key pieces of your inner self that may be holding you back from achieving what your soul truly wants and desires. I may point out pieces that you are subconsciously holding within; and there may be times that it feels uncomfortable. We are both stretching toward growth outside of the comfort zone. I will be encouraging you to let go the “stories” that got you where you are and to develop new habits and beliefs that will carry you forward.
The voice of the ego will come up again and again through this work. It will scream out at you to stop, it may come up as resistance toward making any change, doing the hard work, and even sometimes toward me as your coach (especially around the 5-7 week “hump”!). I will stay with you in these times of exceptional growth (which can feel tough) and ask that you stay with me.
I take confidentiality very seriously in this work. I understand that you are entrusting me with your deepest self, and I cradle that sacred gift in my arms at all times. I understand, as a coaching client myself, how vulnerable that can feel. I do not share my clients’ names or personal information. If I see you in public, I will not reveal you are a client. That being said, you are free to let people know I am your coach.
I am intuitive and passionate about what I see and believe. I am direct and open. It’s important for you to remember that I’m not the premier expert on you. You are. So I’m not always right. I will intuitively offer suggestions and ideas to see what resonates with you. It is up to you to share with me what feels right and what doesn’t. I go with your flow!
What do I need to know as a client?
With the more information you share about what you seek and how you operate, the better I can provide the guidance you seek and serve as the coach you need. I encourage you to be open about what your patterns might be and how I can best work with you to move through them.
In our sessions (video or in-person), I ask that you give your full attention and self. During video sessions, make sure you are in a quiet space with minimal distractions. I will ask to reschedule if the environment is not conducive to our best work together. When we tap into higher guidance to assist us, we create a sacred space and I ask that you similarly honor that space. I will ask that you carve out time for yourself to do this work, which may mean setting other priorities aside for the time being.
It is my honor and pleasure to do this work. We found each other through coaching for a reason, and I trust that the universe means for it to be so.
