Coaching: 1-on-1 Coaching with Kim Ades

How did you hear about Frame of Mind Coaching™?
My mom, Chari Schwartz, is an FOM coach and both of my sisters have been coached with FOM Coaching™. I was having a rough go at the time, so my mom suggested that I have a call with Kim Ades. That call made me decide to sign up for coaching.

What were you struggling with prior to coaching?
I was experiencing an extreme amount of stress surrounding work. I had completed a contract with a client that was emotionally and psychically draining. I wasn’t treating myself properly and I really let the negative aspects of that job overpower me. I was in a really fragile state and was questioning my career choice altogether.

How did coaching impact that?
Coaching helped me realize that I’ve always been on the right track. Work has never been better. I learned to have patience when I don’t have all the information I need and to have calmness among the chaos. I also learned that I can achieve my goals if I’m more analytical and less reactive. I can now step back in stressful situations and have more peace of mind.

Has coaching impacted your relationships?
It impacted my relationship with myself. I take much better care of myself now.

In my relationships with others, I was creating my own issues with others because I was only looking at things from my point of view and anticipating negative outcomes. Now, I’m able to look at things from a different perspective.

I used to boil over, whereas now I can catch myself before I even start to bubble.

Most of your immediate family has been coached with FOM Coaching™. Has coaching changed your family dynamic?
It has improved how we communicate with each other. We’ve learned to talk a little less and love a little more. Even though we’re all very different, it doesn’t surprise me that we all found coaching to be very useful and very helpful.

What was it like having Kim as a coach?
I really love Kim. She is a pretty amazing woman. We have a really authentic relationship, I felt comfortable sharing with her and I respected her feedback.

Have you recommended FOM Coaching™ to others?
Yes! My main goal is to live my life with ease and I feel closer to that every day because of what I learned through coaching. I have seen direct results from choosing what I allow in and out. It’s been about a year since coaching, and I’ve never gone this long without an emotional breakdown or a fight with my partner. I’m really proud of the progress I’ve made.

Is work going smoothly or is it getting you down? Are your relationships harmonious or heated? We can help you feel peace where you now feel pain.

It all starts by taking the FOM Coaching™ Assessment.
