What Is Empowerment Coaching?
“Empowerment Coaching is quite simply, two people sitting down together, and having a conversation. This can be done in person, on the phone, or via Zoom. As a coach, I hold the space and ask questions, listen deeply and assist in productive processing. My clients often don’t create the time within their everyday lives to sit down and think about where they want to go. Empowerment Coaching provides an excellent opportunity to be intentional, to think about what you want, and why. Without the distractions of everyday life, clients find clarity. With clarity and discernment, comes power. It’s quite exciting to see a client light up when the vision becomes clear, and at that point, they become unstoppable. When a client creates a new vision in life, one where they can really see themselves doing what they truly desire, then they can achieve it.”

What is a session like?
Sessions last 50 minutes and need to take place in a calm private location, away from people, pets and distractions. Sessions are confidential and provide the client space to process, come to new insights, envision and explore. When clients have the opportunity to discover their own vision for their lives, they will follow through on what is necessary in order to create it. For this reason, I do not give advice to clients in session.
Where do we meet?
I typically meet with clients over the phone, but if you are in Nashville, TN you may come to my office if you’d prefer to be face to face for sessions. A private space is essential in order to process and feel comfortable. For all sessions, please ensure that you are in a place away from distractions with no people, pets, computers, phones, screens or interruptions.
When do we meet?
All sessions are currently taking place over zoom. I am available for sessions Tuesday- Thursday from 10am-3pm Central Standard Time. You will be able to choose your session times on Calendly. I coach January-May, & September-December.
When and how are you accessible?
I will get back to you within 48 hours if it’s during the work week. I do not text with clients, so feel free to email me.
How can I best prepare for a session?
If you’d like, I can send pre-session and post-session questions to assist clients in getting the most out of their session. The questions are there to inspire thought, and aren’t specifically addressed in session. Clients will create action steps at the end of each session, but this isn’t homework. This accountability is only for the client to have steps to move towards their stated goals.
The most important thing
You’ve got this. Sessions are a safe space where clients are encouraged to express what they are feeling. There is no judgement in sessions, just a space held for you to be. Initially, it’s important to remember that there is no need to be hard on yourself, and that wherever you are is okay. Amazing change comes sweeping in when we give ourselves permission to finally listen and move forward in the direction of our dreams. Coaching is a supportive process of unfolding and blossoming, of diving deep and creating the life you want.
What is the difference between empowerment coaching and therapy?
Sometimes people ask the difference between coaching and therapy. Coaching is future focused positive space where you can explore and more forward. Therapy is looking backwards to your past and working through that. If you imagine that life is a car, coaching focuses on the front windshield, only referencing the past through the rear view mirror. In therapy, you are turning around and looking out the rear window.

Can anyone be coached?
Yes! Carly has coached clients of all ages and backgrounds. You need only be willing and ready to look to the future, dream and imagine.
What is a session like?
When the session takes place, Carly and her client will sit down in a quiet room, away from family members, pets and other distractions. Together, they’ll process through a series of questions, often using tools and techniques to eliminate distractions, and increase awareness and clarity. Sessions can span a wide range of emotions, and all are accepted in the safe and confidential place where the client can really explore and be productive.
Frequency and Duration
Whether a coaching session takes place in person or on the phone, one-on-one private sessions are scheduled once a week and last 50 minutes. Coaching packages range from three to twelve months, depending on the scope of what the client would like to accomplish.
“Carly Kear is the reason why I made a vision board. She showed all of us, here’s why it helps, even if you don’t believe it will help, it’s very inspirational. You wake up looking at your goals in life. So, I went home, did it, got a printer and the first thing I put up was Grammys, and #1 song in the world, 100 charts, I put everything up there. And in that one year, I pretty much achieved all those pictures.”
“After working with Carly I have gained a lot clarity and identified some tangible/attainable life goals. She also has made me realize that I have the power, confidence, and wisdom to pursue those goals. It has been a very empowering experience that has created a lot of movement in my life both internally and externally!! For example, when I started working with her 4 months ago, one of my goals was to find a new job, and I just got that new job! Thank you Carly!”
“When I initially reached out to Carly, my goal was to get a clearer understanding of ‘what I’m supposed to do’ with my life. Not only did she succeed with helping me ‘define’ that early on in our sessions, she helped me to explore and understand my true passion and values. Carly’s coaching was not only transformative; I genuinely believe it helped me find a truer version of myself.”
“Carly’s has the ability to listen deeply and get to the heart of the matter, and to traverse through whatever is blocking my ability to clearly see my goals. Through her ability to navigate around one’s road blocks, either with simple exercises, conversation or visualization, I always leave feeling lighter, and surer of my own gifts and talents…knowing that it’s ok to live life intentionally. I know that ability and strength are already inside me, but sometimes I need help to lift the veil that everyday life can throw on my hopes and dreams. Thankfully Carly is there to do just that.”
“Carly has been coaching me during one of the biggest transitions of my life. I recently had our first child and struggled with a lot of postpartum anxiety. She has walked along a confusing road with me and I have a better understanding of how to look forward instead of looking back while simply taking it one day at a time. I’ve never been more open-minded than I am right now and I’ve also learned better ways to set some realistic goals for myself! I am grateful for this form of processing.”
