Last week I talked to you about my experience transforming energy from negative to positive. This week I am interviewing the woman who helped guide my transformation. Tina Robbins is a Transformational Energy Coach, she works with clients who want to transform their energy from negative to positive. Check out her website here: http://openroadscoaching.com
Keep reading to find out more about when Tina decided to become a coach, why she became a transformational energy coach, and what she is working on now to help you transform your own life.
When did you first feel the pull to become a coach?
I have a degree in Psychology and had thought about exploring coaching off and on for the last 15 years or so, but the timing never really felt right to me. Then a couple of years ago it came up again and all of the signs were pointing in this direction, so I made the decision and ran with it! I found a coaching school that fit my needs and my personal philosophy, became certified, and started my business.
Why did you decide to become a Transformational Energy Coach?
I believe that we transform the world by creating our individual lives based on our deepest values and desires. I have been through several transitions in my life, some planned and some unexpected, and several years ago I made a choice to transform my life instead. I have learned so much about myself, and I have developed a set of tools that I want to share with others who want to create a life of strength, connection, and beauty. Coaching is a way for me to do that.
What are the steps involved when you’re doing an energy assessment?
The energy assessment is a series of questions that are designed to measure your personal energetic breakdown. It’s similar to Myers Briggs or other personality assessments, but instead of personality type, it looks at where your energy is stuck. Then during a processing session, we look at how that stuck energy is affecting your life. Once we have that awareness we can work on shifting that energy in a positive way.
How does the process of assessing someone else’s energy reflect on your own energy?
It’s really exciting when the person I am working with makes the connection between their stuck energy and the challenge they came in with, and working together to break through the stuckness and shift into strength really just lights me up and energizes me.
How do you renew your own energy?
Self care is vitally important for keeping my energy fresh. I spend time with friends and loved ones but on my own I do yoga and I am a mixed media artist. I also try to spend some time in regular meditation, even if it’s just 5 minutes a day.
I know that you have a strong spiritual side, how does that affect your coaching process?
I have spent the last 5 years taking my personal spiritual quest to a deeper level to look more closely at my own complexes and sticky issues, so I have learned things about myself that allow me to really connect with my clients. I have also have a good collection of techniques and tools that have helped me along the way, and there are a few of those that have, in turn, helped my clients as well.
Who is your most influential teacher or mentor and what have you learned from them?
This is a tough one! I have been blessed to work with several really amazing people over the years and I am grateful to all of them. I think the most important lessons I have learned are about staying aware and grounded so that when things get stressful I can come back to my center and deal with things from a place of strength. It’s something I hope to pass on to my clients as well.
What projects are you working on now?
Currently I am taking registrations for a summer camp program for adults called Camp Kidagain. As adults we often don’t take the time to really let ourselves be free and playful like we did as kids. Camp Kidagain is exactly that, crazy fun and playful.
I am also working on a group coaching series that will be launched in the fall called Drive Your Life. The series will focus on strengthening the main areas of life.
Next week, I will be sharing a beautifully written Guest Post by Tina. I’m sure you won’t want to miss this!
