New York, NY – There are times in our life when there seems to be a common thread. When we reach these punctuations in our life, we reflect. Do I really like this? Is this is why I was created? What did God have in mind when he put me on this earth?
Dr. Janet Palmer is a corporate and personal life coach and founder of Dr. Janet Palmer International, where she works alongside individuals and organizations to, as she describes it, clarify and perfect their “why.”
“What does ‘why’ mean?” asks Dr. Palmer. “For a person it’s ‘Why was I created?’ For corporations it’s ‘Why are we featured now?’ If a person is fulfilled they are able to see the markers that confirm they are actualizing their ‘why.’ In an organization, there’s a sense of fulfillment and a sense of purpose when all team members have a similar goal in mind.”
Dr. Palmer holds a doctorate in psychology and worked for many years as a school psychologist until she decided to open a private practice.
“There was a gnawing 20 years ago to explore this new thing called coaching,” recalls Dr. Palmer. “I decided I would. Today I am internationally certified through ICF as a professional certified coach and I am also board-certified.”
Though she believes coaching and psychology to be separate disciplines, Dr. Palmer says she’s not discomforted by working with clients who do have a psychological label. She offers a 360 approach to the client and their success.
"A person can engage the therapeutic process and be enhanced by the coaching experience," says Dr. Palmer. "The two aren’t in conflict. The client becomes more rounded and evolved as a result."
