Bonnie Olson (Other)
I am a native Vermonter.
I am a Martha Beck Certified Life Coach. I began coaching in September of 2011. I am a wife and mother of two grown children. I am a registered dental hygienist of 35 years. I was educated at the University of Vermont. I am a Reiki II, and have experience helping people recovering from injury, surgery and stress with this form of energy work.
I am a member of Therapy Dogs of Vermont for several years. Our dog, Georgie and I have visited nursing homes and a college to bring smiles to lonely elderly residents and stressed students during exams.
Martha Beck says we coach best from our personal “hell and back” life experiences. My experience is supporting those I love who have suffered with emotional stress or eating disorders. I have a special place in my heart for young people who are searching, but really anyone who wants to grow and be freed from what ever holds them back in life from who they are meant to be.
The Reason I Became A Helping Professional
I came to coaching to move forward out of stress in my own life. I knew there had to be a better way to deal with life and stress and wanted to use the tools I learned to help my family and other people. The tools from coaching really help people to reframe a very painful event or thought and reduce their stress. We don't have to suffer and I truly believe now that "suffering is optional".
