Denver life coach coming to Summit County

Life coaching isn’t therapy or consulting, it’s about helping a client understand that choices and reactions shape lives, and a positive outlook helps shape a path of success and happiness.

“Clients already know what their answers are,” Tanya Lelo, certified life coach said. “Most people are in the reality they create for themselves.”

Really, Lelo helps people get over whatever “blocks” they might have. One client, a “world class” artist, was working a dead-end job, but had a fear of ditching his 9-5 to pursue his passion, Lelo said.

“He wasn’t in alignment with his true values,” she said. “Inner blocks were stopping him from moving forward.”

After coaching, he quit his job and pursued his art. Lelo reports he’s now experiencing “success after success.”

Lelo has been certified for a year-and-a-half, but has been “a workshop and education facilitator for over 30 years.” She usually works in the Denver area, but is holding a women’s workshop series, Grow Your Mind, in Summit County starting Oct. 3. The focus is on women’s personal and professional development, she said, since many seem to have a harder time taking care of themselves.

“Most women tend to be the caregivers,” Lelo said. “They want to take care of everyone else first.”

The workshop includes six different sessions, consisting of presentation and lectures, with some participation. “Change … For the Better!” is the first in the series, since many have trouble understanding what change really is, and don’t know how to identify their own personal stress triggers.

“Change is the first step in any transformation,” Lelo said. She compares the process to working out in a gym; “You’re not going to go in the first day and be muscle-bound.”

Other workshops cover how thoughts can prevent success, letting go of attachment, choosing the correct words to shift moods, mindful listening, and setting goals. She’s also hosting an additional two-day course in November: “Creating a Vision Board.” The classes are meant to teach participants about thinking positively, or manifesting, what they want.

“Like attracts like,” Lelo said.

A single workshop costs $30 per person, or $150 for all six Grow Your Mind courses. The first, “Change … For the Better!” is scheduled from 5:30-7:30 p.m. Oct. 3 at Foodies in Frisco, although the location could change depending on participant volume. Following classes are tentatively scheduled for Oct. 11,17, 25, and Nov. 7 and 15, with more details to be announced. The Creating a Vision Board workshop is tentatively scheduled for Nov. 1 and 8.
