Basic Life Coaching session

45


45 per hour - Virtual OK

I will listen and give advice on the topic you bring me. I will try to help you find new perspective on your situation and share with you what I know about healthy communication and possibly conflict resolution. My main goal is to help you find insight into your situation, whatever that may be, understand where you need to go to get the end result you want, and find the next step so that you can start moving forward in the direction that will take you there.

One session = approx. 1 hour, via phone or chat or possibly Skype, and how much is covered will be partly dependent on you - how many questions you have, how complicated the answer is/how in depth the answer has to be (whether I can say "assertive vs aggressive" and you understand that, or whether I have to explain the difference,) what you have done so far, your ability to stay focused on the subject vs random discussion, etc.

This is just a talk session - I may send you links to books or web pages that I think will help give you further information and guidance, and we can schedule more sessions if we both feel it went well and is helping, but I cannot be your "on-call" therapist, I cannot intervene on your behalf with other people, and I will not be going out to lunch or other social activities afterward- this is not a date any inappropriate comments or behavior will immediately end the service and you will be blocked from further trades with me.

Training & Qualifications


I am a survivor of abuse and unhealthy relationships, who's dedicated years to learning how to interact with people in a healthy, assertive way, avoiding passive and aggressive communication styles.

Availability & Preferences


I work Sunday through Thursday 2nd shift, but can sometimes use my lunch hour. I never plan anything before noon.

Trading Preference: I’m flexible, just hit me up!

David received unit of 1 hour massage therapy for headache from Victoria
May 20, 2017
My experience was some of the best ever. It started out kinda nervous cause I normally don't meet people in person. I went with my fiance who got the ...back massage. She walked me through how to do it on my own while I was watching her do it. She was funny, clever, and extremely easy to get along with. My fiance made friends with her so fast. It was originally set for 50, but I received such incredible service I wanted her to have a bit extra. I will be going back over to her house again in the future. show more

In home massage
I do massage for other people, but I never make it out to get one myself anymore. I need my neck and shoulders loosened up so I can go to the chiropractor again and have it actually pop loose.

About Victoria Boyd

I do... ah geez... I do so much stuff. I keep needing things and having to learn how to do new stuff, and then other people need stuff.... My talent is in creating things, fixing things, and just ge...nerally figuring things out. I am drowning in cool craft projects all the time, except when I am working on the home renovations that never end. I am a computer tech in my day job. I install my own hardware and software, and diagnose problems for other people when asked respectfully. I never do it for free, but I have done it for baked goods. :) I can teach you basic computing skills, basic photo editing, and how to make a web page. I bellydance, having started in 1996 and although I don't get to do it often, I still enjoy dancing at goth clubs, around bonfires, or anywhere the energy is good and the music moves me. I can perform, and I do teach. I sew, and I design and make bellydance, goth, and Renaissance costuming, I often make my own patterns. I was a licensed massage therapist specializing in neck and shoulder pain. Now I work on friends and family. I have a chair and two tables, and a funny little face cradle that will sit on a desk when there's no room for anything bigger. I can work in my house, if you seem safe, or I can go to your location, although I may bring a safety companion. I had an apprentice hairdressing license way back when. I still do hair and makeup for friends and family. I am involved in animal rescue. I can show you how to provide IV fluids to an ailing pet, give you advice on how to take care of a rescued kitten, and get you in touch with people who do pet massage if your fur person has aches or arthritis. I dabble in herbal arts. I have made therapeutic magnesium lotions, mixed aromatherapy massage oils, and plan to try soap as soon as life slows down a bit. I can give you recipes or finished products. I do my own brakes, and can probably help you learn to do yours, as well as how to check your fluids and change a tire. In some cars, I can teach you how to replace your spark plugs and wires, filters, etc. I am becoming knowledgeable about permaculture gardening. I can tell you how to improve your soil with things most people throw out, and how to set up a garden so that you get better food for less money, and you know what went into it and on it. I can help you set up compost, find free compost components, and get started with less work. I find creative home decor solutions. I love finding ways to make something fabulous with the least amount of money, although it's not always the least amount of work. Sometimes more effort is worth the results. I am VERY good at thrifting. I have often shopped for other people at thrift stores and found things they would never have imagined. I have cultivated a skill for finding out when something is worth the price, when it's a great investment, and when it could be found better elsewhere. I have had a very... interesting life, which required a lot of growth and a lot of education into healthy communication and relationships. I have been told I am "wise and kind" when talking people through their problems to help them find a better perspective on things or a better way to do things. I have also helped people write out their thoughts when needed, helped them edit what they've written to be more accurate or concise, to clarify, or to be less confrontational, or more assertive, etc. Sometimes I just help them realize what they really want, or admit to themselves what they already know. I have strong verbal skills, and plenty of writing experience, so I can help you set up online profiles for dating or business. I can also help you edit digital photos and art for your profile or web page. I am involved in some alternative lifestyle activities, and have lots of valuable information to share with anyone that wants to learn and get involved. I can be a munch buddy if you want company the first time you to to an event, as well. And I can give you valuable insight on how to avoid unsafe players. show more
