Dealing with a disability regardless of how severe it may be is difficult to go through. When someone becomes disabled they have a large learning curve. This is a good time to consider investing in a coach since it is really an investment in you. I know since I have been in your shoes.
What can I do for you?
Help with Acceptance
It will take some time and effort to start to accept your disability. There are times I still have problems and I lost most of my sight in 2004, granted those times are few and far between. I will help give you tools to use when you are having those bad days. I also have exercises and quizzes to help you gain insight into yourself to gain acceptance.
Tips and Tricks
I have some tips and tricks that can help to make your life a little easier.
If you’re blind pour over the sink – that way if you make a mess it is not a big deal to clean up
Put your finger in the glass as you are pouring, that way you can tell how full the glass is
Put your name and address on your white cane in case it gets lost
Personalize your white cane with a key chain or ribbons that way it will be easier to find if there is more than one
Wheelchair make sure you have a fanny pack to keep your things together
Rearrange things to be on your level
When you become disabled your self-esteem takes a big hit, trust me I know from personal experience. I will help empower you to be more confident. I will help you realize that you are still the valuable person you have always been just a little different. I want you to realize that life does not end just because you may be disabled. If you would like to schedule a free 30 minute chat just go to my calendar and find a time that is convenient for you.
I look forward to connecting, and remember to,
Keep reaching for the stars!
