Coaching Philosophy & Services

My approach as a coach engages the inner resources of clients, including often neglected ingenuity and creativity, to surface new self-understanding and to identify attainable goals. It is the dynamic of honest exchange and supportive interaction that makes coaching an effective method for achieving positive change.

Personal Creativity Enhancement

Because creative endeavors, not necessarily as a self-identified ‘artist,’ have always been such a fulfilling part of my own life, I enjoy working with both professional self-identified artists to achieve their goals and with the rest of us who find pleasure and connection from creative self-expression in its many forms.

“Hi, I’m Shela Turpin-Forster and if you find yourself on these pages, you've probably already been thinking about making a change or improving your sense of satisfaction in personal, professional or leisure activities. I’ve had the pleasure in recent years of working with many interesting people to help them find paths that led to greater life satisfaction. I love coaching and the opportunity to recognize and cultivate the potential in clients although it took me three careers, two graduate degrees, and some self-doubt at times to arrive here. I’d welcome the opportunity to help you smooth out the steps in your dance of life or perhaps even find better music to dance to.
