Common questions or concerns

How is this work different than mental health counseling?

I’m not a mental health professional.  If you are experiencing any mental health difficulty, such as anxiety, depression, etc. I recommend seeing a licensed mental health professional.

Mental health counseling addresses specific mental health issues, focusing on symptom reduction and improving overall psychological well-being. Mental health counseling generally focuses on listening to you.

What I do is deep personal development coaching, which focuses on profound self-exploration and growth. It’s geared towards enhancing self-awareness, authenticity, and personal fulfillment. In addition to listening to you I will challenge, question, help you shift your perceptive and gently nudge.

How is this work different from life coaching?

Deep personal development coaching focuses on profound self-exploration, inner growth, and addressing existential questions. It delves into core values, beliefs, and identity.

Life coaching, on the other hand, helps individuals set and achieve specific goals in areas like career, relationships, and health.

While both aim to support personal growth, deep personal development coaching explores deeper internal processes and beliefs, while life coaching emphasizes practical goal-setting and achievement.

This work will help you achieve outward goals, but from the inside out.

I’m still not exactly sure what this is.

I totally get it.  I would invite you to one of our complimentary mini workshops or an introductory coaching call to sample the work and see if you enjoy it or get something out of it.

I don’t have the time/money for this work

I get it, time and money are fairly important, and it’s easy to feel stretched thin. But when we say we don’t have the time or money for something, what we generally mean is that it’s not a priority for us right now. And that’s okay, but it’s important to recognize that.

Investing in ourselves, in our own growth and well-being, is the best investment a person can make.  It improves your internal core.  The core in which every thought, decision, behavior and result stem from.  What else could be more important? 

Sure, it’s not always easy to find the time or money, but when something truly matters, we tend to make it happen. It’s about valuing ourselves enough to prioritize our own development. So, while it may seem daunting, I encourage you to consider what you stand to gain by making this a priority.

The worse that will happen is you waste a bit of time and money (which isn’t going to actually happen).  And the best that will happen is you begin to change your life completely into one that actually fits you and that you love. 

I fear this work is going to suck. I think I would rather not know what is hiding under the bed.

I appreciate your honesty in acknowledging your fear that this work might be difficult. It’s completely natural to feel apprehensive about confronting what’s lurking beneath the surface.

But here’s the thing: what we imagine is often far worse than the reality. Facing the truth, no matter how uncomfortable, gives us the opportunity to address it head-on. Ignoring the “monster under the bed” only allows it to grow and its impact to spread, often in ways we can’t even anticipate.

Yes, confronting the truth may be painful initially, but it’s temporary. And the relief that comes from finally addressing it is immense. It’s like removing a shard of glass from your foot—momentary discomfort for long-term relief and healing.

So, while it’s natural to feel hesitant, I encourage you to take the leap. The benefits of facing what’s hiding under the bed far outweigh the temporary discomfort. And remember, you don’t have to face it alone—we’re here to support you every step of the way.

I have an ability to read people very well.

What others are saying…

My win for the week: I pealed off the band-aid…I had a consultation today where I did not offer the option of hourly OR flat fee. Flat fee only baby! Thanks so much Brita for pushing me during our coaching session today – it gave me the confidence I needed!
What can I say? Brita has opened my eyes to a world I never knew existed. During the first weeks, my earnings doubled. Not because I started charging a lot, or signed a bunch of new clients, but because I realized I was under-valuing myself. I was failing to appreciate the real value of the work my clients receive and I actually provide for them. After 14 years of a tiresome and, an imposter syndrome driven practice, I am rediscovering the love for my work. I am definitely a Happier Attorney. Thank you, Brita,
Thank you Brita Long for making us see what we always knew but never acted upon. Thanks for constantly reminding us to to be kind to ourselves.
Her coaching is truly life-changing. If you are an attorney, this is an attorney who will be coaching you, and that makes all the difference.

All that I have done for my life I can help you achieve as well.

Create a life that fits you. One that meets your needs, in which you are content, peaceful and life fits you like a glove.
