We are Kamiyah
Here at Kamiyah Coaching, we believe that everyone has the following needs, Being, Belonging, Believing, and Becoming. We begin this journey with a variety of assessments to better understand our client’s personalities, values, and strengths. This is done so that we can go on the unique journey of growth for each individual. From this place of understanding we work with our clients to identify what they wish to achieve, then help guide them forward through the hard work of growth. A big component of this guidance is taking the goals of our clients and helping organize them into disciplined and manageable tasks. We believe not just in the theory of change and growth but also in helping clients create a practical approach that is achievable and more likely to be completed or consistently worked on. This is all part of Being. The understanding of who we are, our values and our learned skills.
We developed this approach from personal experience and ourselves going through this process. During our journeys, we discovered that self-improvement and change are best directed and achieved from an “awareness of self leading to better choices resulting in a greater trust in our abilities.” We bring this understanding to our practice by helping our clients to better understand who they are, how to create and act on better choices, and then help them to evaluate the results. Finally, we help clients to become self-sufficient so that they can continue this work on their own in the future. This future focus is part of the last three goals, Belonging, Believing, and Becoming.
Belonging and Believing work hand in hand as part of the next step. We look for and develop our relationships in organizations so that we create a sense of belonging. Once our clients feel like they belong somewhere, they are then able to practice the goals and strengths identified. As this process continues clients apply their strengths in the organization and develop increased self-confidence and feelings of self-worth. This comes from being more connected and their strengths being applied successfully. We have found that these three Bs are a constant cycle of improvement leading to Becoming. As client self-belief increases, they naturally will continue to apply and develop their strengths towards existing and new goals set for themselves. This leads to clients driving themselves towards becoming the best they can be. So, join us here at Kamiyah Coaching to realize and become the best version of yourself.
