Lifestyle Coaching House is a female focused creative coaching company born and based in New York City.
We specialize in Modern Deportment, Style Coaching, Lifestyle Balance, and Life Coaching, and offer Private Coaching Programs, Group Coaching Sessions, and Salon Style Events.
Lifestyle Coaching House was founded by Sam Smith, a Certified Professional Life Coach and Certified Holistic Health Practitioner and semi-perrennially City Frazzled Stretched Mother. Fed up of watching the cool girls crumble, the former brand consultant set herself the goal of creating an inspiring and progressive, place to define and refine, Suss the Symmetry, and Lift the Mist on modern life.
Lifestyle Coaching House offers a modern take on Life Coaching and we fly the flag for Glossy Realism.
An Introduction to Lifestyle Coaching House
It was ten years ago when I first noticed it happening; We were starting to crumble. I had my own grapple with chronic stress tangled migraines, but it wasn't just me, or just migraines. All around me I began to notice doses of self doubt, shifty motivation, newfound fears, more bad clothes days, occasional unexpected emotional implosions, identities dropping out with placentas... and the general feeling that the shift in life had shifted somewhat out of control.
We were over loaded, over extended and... well... over achieving actually.
And all of us were adding more: Pressure, Promotions. Pets. Travel. Businesses. Bosses. Boyfriends. Boards. Husbands (wives). Kids. Politics. PTA... Chuck it in the cauldron.
Modern day stresses, obsessive tech rituals, mental fatigue, multi-faceted living, FOMO at work and home, repeated over exertion in mind and body, and never taking our eyes off the future while persistently pushing the present can, in any given dose, prevent our natural intuitive skills from surfacing and ultimately leaving a person feeling pretty bemused and City Frazzled.
Distorted perspectives and deficient self image can impact ambition, creativity and self assurance, and there is no need or benefit for creative, successful, and otherwise highly resourceful women to entertain the weight of self-doubt and such as the by-product of their own success. It is a useless and draining endeavor. It holds us back.
'Balance' is a contemporary quest, yet remains a subjective pursuit, a fact that can be easy to miss in an age of gurus begging for adherence. The Future is Modern Deportment: learning how to carry yourself, suss your symmetry, lift your mist, and live your life fully embracing the glamor, grit and greatness, while maintaining a healthy disregard for self-criticism and an insta-sludge of comparison. Confidence from the ground up.
This was the catalyst for Lifestyle Coaching House, for its programs, theories, writing, and research. I retrained after many years in fashion and lifestyle brand building, and shifted my professional focus from brands to people. I became a Professional Certified Life Coach (accredited by the International Coach Federation and International Coach Academy), and a Holistic Health Practitioner (certified and accredited by the State University of New York and Institute for Integrative Nutrition).
Using professional coach knowledge, that cauldron of experience, and some lengthy research projects and exploration into what was missing in the coaching field and what women needed to bring back (or fire up) the confidence into their lives, I developed five programs: Modern Deportment, Style Identity, Stretched Mother, City Frazzled, and Lifestyle Balance.
Lifestyle Coaching House is not a home for festering emotions. It is a Creative Coaching company catering to modern confidence and modern lifestyle.
Glossy Realism is accepting your power in a situation, harnessing that power, of which yours is unique, and making strengthening choices as to what you tune into and tune out.
It is about perspective and intuition.
It's about doing more of what works for you.
It is about reclaiming the good stuff and dealing with the rest.
A Galactic Forcefield of Resourcefulness.
