Peer Plus Life Coaching

There are some lands that you can only properly know if you've been there. A tour brochure will give you a very different experience of a country than a local is able to. The mind is the same way. Life is the same way. While theoretical knowlege is helpful, and incorporated in Peer + Life Coaching in the deepest possible ways, there is no substitute for lived experience.

Our services pair you one on one with a Coach who has learned how to navigate the heights and abysses that life has sent in their direction. Despite having a mental health diagnosis that is often labeled debilitating, our Coaches live lives of thriving! Each one combines this personal wisdom with cutting edge psychological insight and a mystical connection to the unseen world to bring you a map and a co-pilot to walk alongside you as you adventure through your life. A customized path is created with you in the Captain's seat.

 

Our sessions can be provided over the phone, Zoom, or in-person in San Diego County. Goal-setting, symptom reduction, explorations of meaning and purpose, as well as mutual adventures to beaches, monasteries, support groups, doctor's appointments, and nature walks can be arranged to supplement the journey with rich and healing environments.

Peer + Life Coaching is offered at variable rates according to the requests of our specialists and are not reflective of abilities. Our coaching can be moulded to fit any schedule you may have.

Connect with us now and journey to new heights with a local as your co-pilot.

Onwards and upwards! 🚀
